If you love Harry Potter, Boots has a tonne of Harry Potter themed beauty products in their Christmas range, and the Harry Potter Quill Shimmer Gel Eyeliner is just one of those products. I’ve already shared my thoughts on the Harry Potter Honeydukes Chocolate Frog Face Palette, the Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle Collection and the Harry Potter Wizarding World Hedwig Advent Calendar 2021.
Harry Potter Quill Shimmer Gel Eyeliner
“Ensure your lines are as sharp as ‘Quick-Quotes’ with this HARRY POTTER™ Quill Gel Eye Liner with gold shimmer! Twist base of pot to open.”
The Harry Potter Quill Shimmer Gel Eyeliner is £6, and is part of the Boots Christmas 3 for 2 deal, and it’s designed to look like a quill for writing. It’s cute packaging, with a sparkly black glitter ink well, and the ‘quill’ is the brush, which twists off, and the base of the inkwell unscrews to reveal the gel eyeliner pot.
The Harry Potter Quill Shimmer Gel Eyeliner includes a black gel liner, with golden shimmer. It looks so pretty inside the jar, but the gold doesn’t translate which is such a shame, as it does look very pretty, as shown above, but that shimmer doesn’t appear anywhere when applied to the lids as liner, or even as an eyeshadow base.
In terms of formula, it’s not the best. It’s a £6 eyeliner, so it was never going to be amazing, but all of these swatches are between four and eight dips into the pot, and they’re still not opaque.
It’s also really glossy and sticky, and doesn’t actually dry down on the eyes, so if you blink, it’ll transfer to your lids or brow bone depending on how much liner you apply. The packaging is so cute, and perfect for a Harry Potter theme, it’s just a shame it moves around so much.
