A few years back I heard about the GENIE brand from my sister whilst she lived in the US. She used to rave about the Instant Line Smoother that she purchased from the shopping network QVC. Having bought me one as well and posted it to me, I never ended up receiving the product (damn the postal service).
A few months back I discovered that the Genie brand was now available in Oz (woop woop) on Australia's leading shopping channel TVSN.
Fortunately for me, I was sent a couple of their products for consideration and couldn't wait to try and review these.
Million Dollar Lash Kit
Infused with ultra-hydrating beeswax and soft, velvety Silica fibres, GENIE’s Million Dollar Lashes Mascara visually adds volume, length and thickness to dramatically transform sparse and thin lashes into lush lashes.
To achieve maximum effect lashes it is a two step process.
TLC Plus Lash Booster
This rich, creamy formula is loaded with nylon fibres that cling to your eyelashes like mini lash extensions; helping your lashes to curl up, thickens lengthen as well as conditioning your lashes.
The curved wand allows for easy application to curl your lashes.
To apply, you start from the base of your lashes and comb up through the ends of your lashes. The more you use the more dramatic the effect will be.
You do not have to wait for the Booster to dry to then apply the mascara, you can do it immediately.
This Mascara thickens, lengthens and conditions your lashes. It's V-shaped applicator gives you twice as much last without the effort of reapplying several times.
The fat brush wand of the mascara allows for easy application.
The mascara and the white booster provides a non-drying, thickening and lengthening base coat for the lush black mascara which extra-thickens and lengthens, which I love.
Superglide Gel Eyeliner
The Gel Eyeliner is a specially formulated waterproof gel eyeliner. It's so smooth when applying that there is no dragging, tugging or pulling need to achieve a straight neat line. It instantly transforms your lash-line by making it look darker, richer and thicker.
I love using eyeliners but do struggle with achieving a steady straight line. Usually one eye is perfect and the other not so straight. It then becomes messy as by the time I try to rectify it, the liner has set. With the Genie Superglide Eyeliner, it is so much easier to work with. It sets after 90 seconds to become waterproof and smudge proof, giving me a little more time than other eyeliners to soften and fix any mistakes.
The eyeliner is super pigmented so you do not need to go over the same area twice. It glides super easy giving me a perfect line the first time. The pencil is housed in AES not wood so it keeps the formulation moist. This is great, as I found over time some of my old eyeliners had dried up or become harder to apply or even detached itself from the wooden barrel and fall out.
It also comes with it's own sharpener. I prefer to have a different sharpener for each pencil as they are all slightly shaped differently at the tip and this prevents cross contamination with colour if they are different.
The Superglide Eyeliner comes in two colours Espresso Brown and Blackest Black.
The GENIE Million Dollar Lash Kit retails for $39.95 and Genie Superglide Gel Eyeliner with Sharpener retails for $24.95.
