If Kate Middleton trusted this eyeliner not to smudge on her wedding day, so can you

Few makeup products get the stamp of approval from a royal. And Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner gets high praise from commoners too.

Kate Middleton, who famously did her own wedding makeup, used the long-wear gel eyeliner to create a smudge-proof smoky eye on her big day. She may not be a makeup professional, but the Duchess of Cambridge picked wisely because this liner has more than 2,500 near-perfect reviews from Nordstrom customers.

So why is this beauty staple so highly regarded?

Whether you’re worried about wedding day tears (like Kate probably was) or looking for a smudge-proof solution, this Bobbi Brown liner will do the trick. The high-pigment formula lasts for up to 12 hours — water, sweat and humidity are no match for it.

Need proof? “Best eyeliner hands down on the market today!” raved one Nordstrom shopper. “I have used this daily for several years! Others fade terribly throughout the day, but this one stays.”

From a subtle everyday look to a dramatic cat eye, the beauty of this liner also lies in its versatility. All you need is a thin angled brush to apply the gel formula — which glides on with minimal pressure — and you get the preciseness of a liquid liner without the mess. And, halfway through the day you won’t have to worry about product transferring to your lids or under-eye area.

“This eyeliner is the most user friendly one out there. It’s easy to build and correct any failed liner attempts,” explained a happy customer.

Another added, “I’ve been using this gel eyeliner for almost ten years. It glides on so easily and lasts forever. I usually buy the black ink but there are also so many fun colors. I don’t think I’ll ever buy any other eyeliner again.”

So if you’re on the market for an easy-to-use product that delivers on its promise, consider this user-friendly — and royal-approved — eyeliner.
