Makeup has the power to draw boundaries and set standards that quite literally change how you show up in the world...and how others respond to you.” - Melissa Poepping

It truly is everything we have ever dreamt of and could ever possibly imagine.

Until that is.... the vision will expand once again.

Which it will.
Because, it always does.

For you.

The Gel Eyeliner 

Ladies, meet your new obsession. 

• Intensely pigmented
The deepest black 
• Long wearing
• Emotion proof

And, a complimentary brush to ensure you can create the most precise lines with confidence.   Use the long angled edge to imprint the perfect outline for a winged look or, the short edge to create an effortless classic line. 

[ a note from Melissa ] 
I tip-toed with great trepidation into the world of gel eyeliners.  I had long loved the looks I could create with loose minerals using a foiling method, I had played around with liquid pens and often longed for the ease of a pencil.  I was determined to master gel and bring this option into the VRAI lineup.  

I spent an entire year searching for the perfect applicator brush, and tried endless options presented.  

I tested various formulas.  

I swam, I cried, I worked out, I celebrated,  I slept with perfectly winged eyeliner applied... how else can one properly test a new product?

I refuse to settle for a product that is anything less than "obsession level" before putting the VC signature on it.

The Gel Eyeliner has now become my daily go-to product for creating a defined look.

I am confident you are going to love this product as much as I do. 

If you are new to Gel Eyeliner, practice your technique. Be patient with yourself... and as you test your skills, keep your coconut oil and cotton rounds close by because once you apply this product, it's with you for the day.  

Always cleanse the brush fibers after application.

Gel eyeliner can become dry quickly, be sure to promptly secure the cover after application to prolong use.
