BOBBI BROWN Gel Eyeliner Duo




I'm always having issues with eyeliner.

I've tried the pencils, which I find is fine for under the lid, but I can never craft it along the top.

Try the 'pen' type then. Nope. Serious wonky lines that seem to just get thicker and thicker trying to even them out! arghhhh!

Think I've tried them all. All different shapes and sizes and I still can't get a straight even line and don't even get me started on 'winged'!

side note + + total admiration for all you ladies out there who can get that perfect winged tip every time! + +


I thought I would sadly from now on, go through life sans eyeliner, as I just can't bloody perfect it!

Seriously, I've watched the YouTube tutorials, searched endless tips and tricks to literally no avail.

Until.

Until the other week flying back from Spain, on my birthday actually. I did my usual perusal of the inflight magazine, which I think I know from cover to cover now, lol!

I spied this Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner Duo.


Must admit I did get quite excited reading about them.

Applying with a brush, from a cute little pot.

Hmmm, I like this idea!

Birthday treat for moi!


Could this be my eyeliner saviour!?


The gel eyeliner duo sold onboard on Monarchwas £29.50, but there was an extra 10% off too, which I think they have this promotion quite often. I flinched slightly at the thought of spending this amount on two teeny tiny pots of goo, but I figured these were gonna be my last try in the bid for easy eyeliner application.

At £29.50 they've got to be good!


To be honest, I was actually very excited to be in possession of some fancy designer make up! I don't usually splurge that much on make-up normally, Benefit is probably my only splurgiest, lol.

I'm starting to learn though, that quality make-up is definitely worth it!


In the pack you get two tiny pots and a mini application brush.

One pot of 'Black Ink' which is the blackest of black and the other is 'Sepia" which is a dark brown.


Even though I had bought these nearly two weeks ago I have only just been able to try them out! itchy dry eye issue which I won't bore you with!


So, I tried the Black Ink first. As black is always my go to colour for eyeliner - only because I've never been adventurous to try any other colour! I know, quite tragic as I'm now 35!!


Feeling weirdly nervous lol, as I just didn't want to mess it up and I really, really wanted these to be my key to being able to apply eyeliner correctly! Just an even line would do, please!

And yes, my prayers were answered. The gel literally glided onto my lid from the brush and I found it so much easier to build up and get a straight line!!

The Black Ink is a dream!

Excited I had to then try the Sepia. I was intrigued at how a brown would look on my lid.

I then realised I only had one brush and had already used it with the Black Ink!

I casually wiped the brush clean.

+ + i hope I'm not making the beauty guru's cringe to much for me doing this! I know it's probably wrong and I should have a separate brush or swiftly of cleaned this one! Ah trial and error friends, trial and error ; ) + +


The Sepia sweeped across my lid as easily as the black. Total dream. I'm in complete awe of these ickle pots of gel eyeliner! The colours are perfect and I can't wait for the morning to re-do my make-up!

+ + + + + + +

I'm not quite at the wing tip stage just yet, but I'm feeling more hopeful, a lot more confident and I feel the future is bright for me and eyeliner!


Thank you so much Bobbi Brown for creating this fabulous Gel Eyeliner.
no wonder it's award winning!

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Looking for compounds in Riyadh

When Mark was first offered the job in Saudi, actually even before that when we were waiting in anticipation for the job to be offered we knew our first choice of accommodation in Riyadh would be on a western compound. We wanted our new place to be a home from home. Even though we have no problem whatsoever with following dress codes or anything and it actually doesn’t bother us in the slightest covering up. We sometimes, because of the world we’re from, being a westerner we wanted that little bit of ‘normality’ from our home life that we’re used too. We like to go on walks in the evening so it’s nice to be able to just pop on your shorts and vest and go for a walk without thinking and also being able to pop to the mini market for a pint of milk and a loaf of bread. Probably one of the biggest reasons for us to live on a compound is that we like to swim, sunbathe and be at the pool together. Which for us is a big part of our life. Another thing we like about compound living is the esca
