Makeup Geek Gel liner comes in the most colorful packaging I've ever seen for a gel liner (not that I've seen too many, yet!!). The outer carton is a vibrant shade of hot pink with a delicate leaf motif that is very feminine . The actual product is housed in a glass jar with a black screw top lid that has the brand logo written on it. I love the simple yet feminine packaging..It screams fun!!
The makeupgeek website describes Electric as a bright Royal Blue with a matte finish. I have been looking for a bright Blue liner for a while now, and I was just glad that I could find this at the makeup geek store. Electric is truly an electrifying shade of blue, not much of a cobalt blue like it looks in the pot, but more like a dark Royal Blue, and on my medium skin it doesn't look as bright as probably in a hand swatch. Nevertheless, I love the color and Blue always works for me!!
The Gel Liner has a creamy consistency, it almost melts on contact with a liner brush. It is super easy to apply and spreads without being crumbly or flaky. On the flip side, the pigmentation is medium to buildable. I need to layer the product atleast thrice to make it opaque. Also, it takes longer than usual to dry and that can be a deterrent when you're in a rush!!
The eye liner sets after a few minutes post application. After that it stays whole day long without any smudging or fading. I have taken an afternoon nap with this on, and it didn't move a bit. You can easily get a minimum of 8-10 hours of wear with this and more. It gets easily removed with a makeup remover .
Overall, The makeupgeek Gel Liner in Electric is a good quality gel liner at a very affordable price tag and lives up to most of its claims, barring the one about pigmentation. I am in love with the shade and hope to get a few others from the line too. The range has a variety of shades to choose from for girls who love to experiment with colored liners. The eyeliner stays all day without fading or smudging and I only wish the color was more intense.
