Rimmel London - Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Hey everyone!
Today I thought I would do a review on this eyeliner that I recently purchased. I'm really quite new to gel eyeliners as I've always just used liquid, but, as it so happens I ran out of every liquid liner I had to my name. I was literally scraping the sides to get even the tiniest amount out, and so with that it was off to Boots to purchase a new liner! I've seeing and hearing a lot of good about gel eyeliners so I thought I'd jump in and finally try one out for myself. My usually liquid eyeliners are Rimmel so I stuck with the brand as I knew I liked the liquid formula. So the verdict?

I must say, I absolutely loved it! I'm so glad that I decided to try this out and I really feel I won't be returning to liquid liners and, in fact, will be purchasing gel liners from here on out. I feel that this product has such a good design as the applicator brush is inside the lid, so all you need to do is pull it out and apply your liner  I will however say that the applicator is quite small and I would have preferred a longer handle but nonetheless  the applicator is good. The brush is a good shape for application as it gives a really thin even line which can be built up for a more dramatic look and if turned on it's side provides an excellent angle to create effortless winged liner which I tend to wear most days. 

And the bad? I hear you ask. Well, this product does take a rather long time to dry and if you dare to blink it's easily transferred onto the brow bone, this is easily wiped away however so it's not to much of an issue.   The colour density is fantastic and is very black but i'd suggest applying a few times as it does go on slightly wet and ever so slightly off-black and does tend to need to be re-applied throughout the day only if it's quite hot though.

Overall, I think that this is a nifty idea. Gel eyeliners are a fantastic product, but often expensive, so I was happy to hear Rimmel had brought out a cheaper alternative, even for £6.49. This was my first gel liner so I'm happy with the results and it's now prompted me to try out different gel liners in the future. Hope you're all having a good weekend!


  1. I really like the packaging. I'm more of a pencil liner girl myself, but I'm always interested in changing it up. Awesome post!


  2. Lovely review ~ I'm also really into liquid eyeliners, and although I like the maybelline gel liner, I tend to reach more for the liquid ones :)

  3. I love the little pot it comes in, so cute! I really hope this product comes to the USA, I would love to give it a try :) xx

  4. I was looking for a new eyeliner and this looks really good!

    I've just started following your blog, looking forward to more reviews and posts :) xoxo

  5. This looks so good! I don't really wear eyeliner that much because i haven't found one i really like, but i'm going to buy this one! x

  6. I think I will try this after I'm done with my Bobbi Brown one since I am looking for a cheaper alternative :)

  8. SO happy I came across this review. I bought this gel liner when it first came out and although I was thrilled with the packaging and the density of the black, it took FOREVER to dry. Think I was waiting for at least 10 minutes... :|. x
