Hey Everyone,

Hope everyone's doing great!

I know it's been a while since I mentioned in this post, that I was going to tryout the black gel liner offerings from both Inglot and Motives to figure out which one was better. And I have honestly been using these two nonstop since then... Infact, I only just switched to using liquid liner, this weekend.

Anyways, so I was honestly agonising over which one was better and then I said to myself, it must be because they are both equally as good. Motives is a smidge better than Inglot because it doesn't dry-up as quickly, but apart from that there isn't that much difference.

Then I went to swatch them next to each other and this only further solidified my conclusion that they are very similar. They are super-dark, very pigmented and long-lasting (both lasted all day without flaking). I really should've just swatched them next to each other and saved myself the stress.

Honestly, you don't understand the pressure I put myself under lol. I always only want to recommend products that I know work really well for me and will deliver. And I also feel I change my mind.. A LOT, and wanted to take my time with this one so I won't have to back-pedal.

So, if you are currently unable to get your hands on Inglot Gel liner in '77', Motive's 'Little Black Dress' is a great alternative, and vice versa.

Don't forget to purchase some Duraline to go with whichever you pick.

All the purchase information for both liners can be found here and here!

Hope you enjoyed this post!

  1. Thanks for this post Ez! I was so disappointed when my Inglot gel liner dried up and i wasn't even half way through the jar so i've been using my liquid liner. I've been considering buying the motives one even though it's a bit more expensive, I just wanted to try out the brand. At least now I know I will enjoy my motives liner when I get it. Thank you!

  2. Heard nothing but the best reviews about the INGLOT liner! Cant wait to try it


  3. Hi Ez,

    Thank you so much for taking out time to share this.

    I'm an eyeliner lover and as far as I'm concerned, gel eyeliners are the 8th Wonder of the World.

    Any make-up product that doesn't need to be touched up all day, is my idea of bliss :-)

  4. If ur gel liner dries out just put a drop or 2 of coconut oil in d jar and let the gel soak it up, and it's as good as new.


I'd love to hear from you! :)
