Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

A more affordable dupe: Etude House Proof 10 Gelquid Eyeliner

A more affordable dupe: Etude House Proof 10 Gelquid Eyeliner

I love high end products but I always have one eye out for affordable alternatives. One of my favorite liners is a gem from Make Up For Ever called the Aqua Liner, which is basically a liquid formula with a bendy brush applicator. It sticks on like nobody's business and is extremely water-resistant. However, it's about P1,200, and unless you're a makeup artist or a loaded makeup junkie, that is a bit too much for eyeliner. 

Enter the Etude House Proof 10 Gelquid Eyeliner (P498). This is a lot like my MUFE liner except it's better priced! This sets completely and stays on all day, plus the brush is a breeze to work with. This doesn't smudge on me too! I've worn this for 10 hours and it did not move at all. 

The shade I have is called BK801, a greyish black with silver glitter. Some people might be put off by the glitters but I quite like the extra flash whenever the light hits it. There's a place for matte, super black eyeliner, and another one for glittery glam liners. It doesn't have to be just one, ya know.

The pigmentation is dark in one swipe, but I do two swipes for maximum opacity.

Here I am wearing it BK801 on my lids. It has that sugar-spun look to it, no? My MUFE liner is a lot more sparkly and twinkly, but at P498, the Etude House Gelquid is far from shabby and is in fact more pigmented. (Gelquid is suck a funky name can I just say). I love the formula. Try this out if you like glittery, long-wearing liquid liners that'll stay on oily lids! It can give the MUFE Aqua Liner a run for its money.
