Ingredients

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Cyclopentasiloxane, Tocopheryl Acetate, Isododecane,
Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate & isododecane, Propyl Paraben

Lets take a look at the ingredients

Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Cyclopentasiloxane

This is a siloxane ( silicon + oxygen + alkane). It gives a silky feeling to touch. It forms a barrier on the skin. It is not absorbed by the skin and hence evens out the skin. It prevents water loss by forming a hydrating barrier on the skin. Like most silicones, this ingredient has a unique fluidity that makes it easily spreadable. The initially viscous texture evaporates quickly. It does not penetrate the pore lining where acne are formed.

Dimethicone might be trapping in moisture, bacteria, sebum, skin oils and impurities. So people prone to acne and those having oliy skin can see increase in blackheads.

Propyl Paraben

Parabens mimic estrogen and are said to cause cancer. Usually cosmetics have this in lower amounts and  in lower levels this cannot cause cancer.

Tocopheryl Acetate

Tocopheryl acetate is a type of Vitamin E. It is a nutrient, antioxidant, skin conditioning agent. It can reduce free radicals, helps maintains freshness of cosmetics .

Isododecane

This is insoluble in water, makes cosmetics spreadable, feels weightless on skin. Prevents water evaporating from skin, gives a silky, smooth texture to skin.

Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate

Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate is an emollient used in skin care products for its properties as a skin conditioning and viscosity increasing agent.

Ingredients are something to be wary off. Use them in small quantities ad make sure you get them off after use.

Music Flower Gel Eyeliner

Click to Buy Music Flower Gel Eyeliner

I purchased Gel liner just because I was finding it very difficult to use a liquid eyeliner. Also most eyeliners were wearing off very fast or would smudge or would just look faded.

When I heard about Gel eyeliners I purchased this eyeliner to get an idea about how they are and whether I would be comfortable using it.

Ingredients

Dimethicone
Dimethicone is a silicone based polymer or simply silicone oil. This ingredient ensures smooth application.
From what I have researched it does not clog pores. It is hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic and nonacnegenic.
If you have dry skin this can make it worse. Also it does not sink in and nourish the skin but rather forms a plastic barrier on skin.

Ozokerite
Ozokerite is a mineral wax. It used as a binder and prevents emulsions from seperating into oil and water. It is organic but it said to be a heavily processed material.

Hydrogenated Polyisobutene
This is a synthetic oil which is often used as mineral oil substitute. This is an emollient and has moisturizing properties.

Propylparaben
It is a paraben, can be carcinogenic if used in larger quantities. Please do you own research on this.

How to use Music Flower Gel Liner

Here is a quick tutorial on how to apply gel eyeliner.
Apply concealer or primer on upper lids and also around the eye, I apply on the undereye as well. Blend in the concealer ( the concealer I use ).
Don’t use a setting powder as this might cause the gel liner to clump. We want it to glide on and not clump.

How to revive gel eyeliner that dries up

How to revive gel eyeliner that dries up
Gel Eyeliners do tend to dry up and depending on the brand you have purchased they can be very expensive to purchase. Some easy and effective ways to revive your gel liner.
Eye drops
Add a few eye drops into your gel liner. Mix up with a clean brush and its ready to use.
Warm water bath
Take water heat it up to approximately 65 degree C . Take your gel liner pot and add it to the water in a tightly sealed bag.
Oil
Oil can clean almost anything. I use it to clean light switches to bathroom fixtures and now I use it as a part of my beaty regimen. Take a mild non scented oils like coconut oil, jojoba oil or baby oil. Use it to clean the brush.
Store the gel eyeliner bottle upside down. The moisture and oils go to the top which are required to prevent the gel from drying. Also keep a plastic sheet in between cap and gel. This will seal all oils and moisture in, preventing it from evaporating.

Can gel eyeliner be used as a kajal
It is advisable not to do that. Eyeliner gels can be harsh, most might not have organic compounds and cause dryness, itching and ageing.
