MUA Gel Eyeliner "Underground"

Hello there my gorgeous beauties.  I hope you are all well on this fine Thursday Morning :) 
Well I say fine as I look out the window it isnt so fine as its dull cold and just down right blah!!!! But if you be positive you can make even the dullest looking days look bright ;)
So todays review isnt exactly a new product plus I am sure most of you MUA fans out there have already tried this but for some of you who havent or are wondering about it I decided to review this little beauty for you.  
Its the MUA Gel Eyeliner.  They are not exactly New New but they were only released at the end of the summer last year.  There are 4 shades to choose from on the site and they cost £3 each.  
The shades that are available are Black which is named "Underground" , Brown which is named "On the Move", A Pewter shade which is named "Fairground" and Lastly a Blue teal which is named "Tribe" 
I opted to get "Underground" just to try it out, I was actually quite proud of myself not ordering all shades but I was just been careful to try out one before going back for more ;) 
The packaging is ever so cute and small I have to admit.  I was surprised by how small it was and is.  The gel liner comes in a little black plastic tub.  It also comes with a little eyeliner brush which clicks into the lid.  It can be used either on its own which is short or it clicks into the base of the lid for more length what ever suits you .  I actually quite like the brush ok sometimes its not suitable for a more thinner line but it will make a nice medium line and is actually quite sturdy.  It washes well too.  For people who do not own alot of brushes they will be delighted with this little edition.  For people who have more than a million eyeliner brushes of all shapes and sizes might find this a waste of time unless they are travelling and dont want to bring alot of brushes.  
What amazed me more was the gel liner itself.  Its smooth and very creamy.  The pigmentation is amazing as I said above I got the shade "Underground" which is a black shade.  This black is jet black not grey BLACK which I love.  When it dries it dries matte black again what I love again.  This doesnt even have to be built up for pigmentation literally one swipe does the job I love it.  The liner doesnt dry instantly which give you time to smudge or blend or what ever you want to do with it, you have at least 10 seconds or a little more to so whatever you want before it sets.  When its sets it stays put :) 
Overall I am impressed with the Liner I found its lasts more than 8 hours on my eyes.  Its smudge-proof and easy on the eyes.  It doesnt flake but I found that if you layer it too much it will flake.  Its so so easy to apply and need little to no effort to apply.  I did find it does smudge on my water line but my eye does tend to water a little throughout the day.  
This Lasts quite a while even though its small as its so pigmented and requires very little for each application.  I have this liner about 4 months and there is still no sign of it drying out any time soon 
I highly recommend this liner especially for the top and bottom lash line as what more do you need in a liner unless you are looking for something waterproof :) 
Check out MUA site to see the swatches of the other shades :) in which im sure I will be purchasing in the need future ;) 
on layer on the skin made with brush supplied :) 
So thats it for this review everyone i hope you found this helpful 
Have you tried this yet and what is your opinion on it :) 
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter

This reminds me so much of the rimmel gel liner - the packaging is the exact same, wonder if it's the exact same product...if it is mua is a lot cheaper!
