Review: LB Smudge Gel Eyeliner

I wasn’t sure about this gel eyeliner when I bought it at Don Quijote, but it’s really grown on me. The concept is that you want to smudge it after application in order to create a soft and elegant impression which is perfect for those who want to have that natural look makeup. If you want to go for a bolder look, you skip blending it out. Whatever finish you want, this product will do it for you.

lb smudge gel eye liner review


– easy to apply
– with a tight cap
– easy to blend
– The shade can be vivid or soft.
– Lasts for long hours.
– Doesn’t irritate my eyes.
– Even if it’s waterproof and smudge-proof, it can easily be removed using my current favorite cleansing oil.


– Due to its soft texture, it has a tendency to break if drawn too hard or drawn out too much.
This product is susceptible to drying because it’s quick-drying so after application, you have to immediately close the cap firmly until it clicks.

No wonder why it was ranked number 1 back in 2017 in 2 popular cosmetic shops in Japan. I’d recommend this.
