Laura Geller Line-n-Define Dual Dimension Eyeliner Review


February 2021 (WHAT'S NEW?)


Laura Geller Line-n-Define Dual Dimension Eyeliner Review
Product Description
The concept of the Laura Geller Line-n-Define Dual Dimension Eyeliner is, on paper, as intriguing as it gets. Sporting both a felt-tip liquid eyeliner and a gel eyeliner, this should be all the eyeliner you need, right? Well, yes and no. While it should theoretically be the only eyeliner you’re ever gonna need, the imbalance of quality between the liquid liner (better) and gel liner (worse) sides just hardly make it reliable? While it could be workable, it just makes us wonder why you don’t just get separate products that do their own jobs well.

The difficulty in creating products that try to serve multiple important functions is that if it flops in terms of one of its uses, it’s quite easy to look at the whole product as, functionally, a failure. Laura Geller treads murky and slightly dangerous waters with their Line-n-Define Dual Dimension Eyeliner, and while we wouldn’t say it a huge failure as a whole, we do think it’s clear which side was crafted with more carefully, deliberately.

A dual-ended eyeliner, this products sports two ends: one felt-tip liquid eyeliner, and one gel crayon eyeliner. Functionality-wise, this grants it a bit of versatility, giving you the opportunity to get either precise brush strokes or more grungy lines. Both ends, thankfully, apply smoothly, without any issues with skipping. The felt-tip liquid eyeliner end, in particular, shines brightly, especially when you’re looking to pull off a neater, more difficult eyeliner technique. Both ends are also pretty strongly pigmented, so the color is vivid and, more importantly, even.

In contrast to the felt-tip end, the gel eyeliner was a little bit more of a bust. Something about the formula of this side just makes it sit on the skin a little less comfortably than the liquid eyeliner. As a result, it also wears off almost as quickly as it’s applied with the added bonus of leaving smudge marks where there definitely aren’t supposed to be any.

It’s not an absolute disaster or anything, but this dual eyeliner is far, far, far from perfect, especially the gel eyeliner side. We admire this laudable effort from Laura Geller, but like we said, the combination of these two products has to be greater than the sum of its parts—otherwise, why not just purchase two separate products that are more competent at what they do individually?

SUITABLE FOR: All skin types.
