As the title says really.

Thinking of investing in bobbi brown gel eyeliner after recommendations on here and from India knight.

Brush seems a bit strep though, £22. Is it worth it, or are there [much] cheaper alternatives?

Rimmel Exaggerate. £5 and it's the best eyeliner in the world.

Thanks, but I've got my heart set on one of the col ours.

I don't mind paying for the liner, but I'm Wondering about a cheaper alternative to the brush.

Thanks katy

Real Techniques Fine Eyeliner brush.

I know you're keen on BB, but if it's black you're after Maybelline Gel eyeliner is excellent and comes with its own brush.

OP have a look on the QVC website, I got a great deal on my Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner, two for the price of three I think and got a brush included in the price. I also had the opportunity to stagger the payments interest free over three months.

Thanks. Qvc a good idea I think, or could this be a dangerous new website to discover?:-)

Thanks for the mayballine idea, but I don't want black.

I never buy the brushed in store. Always eBay

Qvc offer no longer valid, but eBay perfect! Found brand new for less than half price.

Thank you mums net :-)
