Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Gel Liner - Chocolate Truffle review, photos

The concept behind Bobbi Brown's Perfectly Defined collection sounds right up my street, promising to give us what we need for standout eyes.  I need my eyes to stand out, and you'll know that from any photos or videos you've seen of me without any eye makeup.  I have beady, villainous eyes at the best of times and need all the help I can get.

The Perfectly Defined Gel Eyeliner, which is the famous Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in pencil form, intrigued me because now we'll be able to carry it around with us in our makeup bags.  As someone who finds it hard to whittle things down, this pleases me to no end.  It comes in six shades and I was sent Chocolate Truffle to play with.  Let the record show that there are at least two more shades that I need.  I say need because I do actually need them to define my eyes just with different colours.  Ahem.  Any excuse.


It's one of those twisty uppy pencils (totally technical term there) and has a little sharpener in the end which I forgot to photograph, but it just pares down the liner so if you want a precise line, it does the job.  There's a good bit of product waste though when you sharpen it, so I'd only do so if absolutely necessary, anything to save a few bob eh?

The product itself is soft and creamy, with only a slight bit of resistance when applied to the skin at first, but once it warms up, it becomes even softer and smoother.  It's incredibly long-lasting and I've been wearing it in a multitude of ways to test it out and honestly, I can't fault it at all.


Such is my love for Chocolate Truffle, I've been looking for excuses to wear it every day and because I wear neutral eyeshadows to work most days, having a brown liner like this has made me realise that everyone should have a brown eyeliner in their stash.  It's less harsh than black, is more subtle and provides a softer look, depending on how you use it.

I've been wearing it along the upper lash line to add definition to my neutral eye makeup and love how it thickens up the lash line, looking more natural than if I'd used black.  It stays put for hours on the waterline too and doesn't irritate my delicate eyeballs one bit.


If I want a bit more va-va-voom, I thicken up the line on the outer half of the upper lash line.  I've also been smudging it into the upper lash line over slightly darker eyeshadow and you need to work fast if you're smudging because once this sets, it sets!


I tried sharpening it to see how precise I could get the line and it worked really well, especially at the flick as you can see below.   This is True Love folks.  Liner Love.  Oh, and removal is a cinch.  I've been using my Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and it takes it off no muss, no fuss, no rubbing or tugging.

Also in the Perfectly Defined Collection comes the Gentle Curl Eyelash Curler which helps give lift and curl to the lashes and you know what, I haven't curled my eyelashes in ages, so I must pick up one of these and give it a go.

There's a Dual Ended Mascara which sounds very interesting altogether, with one end housing the Extreme Party Mascara and the other with No Smudge Mascara.  They can be worn separately or layered together and sounds perfect for Joanne's wedding as we'll be both partying and crying!  Hopefully more partying than crying though!

Chocolate Truffle, let me count the ways in which I love you.  You add definition to my eyes and make it so easy to work with you.  You're portable which means that you'll squeeze into my overly full makeup bag beautifully and I can carry you around like a lady of leisure without giving myself back pain.  I can be slap dash with you and have a little smudgy action going on or use you for an ever so ladylike cat eye.  You are exactly what I've needed in my collection and on my eyes and I think we're going to be very happy together.  You are totally worth the €23.50 price tag but don't get jealous if I bring one or two fellow liners home when payday hits, ok?

The Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Collection is on counters now.  Go check it out!  And stay tuned to see Chocolate Truffle in action in a video very soon.  What can I say, I'm obsessed!
