Becca Majorca Automatic Eye Pencil

Becca Majorca Automatic Eye Pencil ($23.00 for 0.013 oz.) is described as an “intense black.” The formula is supposed to have intense pigmentation, be long-wearing, waterproof, and smudge-proof. The level of intensity is pretty good; it’s definitely a rich black–not a soft black here–but there are more intense blacks on the market. It is a cool-toned black, which means it doesn’t have any brown tones to it.

I really wanted to like the formula, because it feels very creamy going on–it applies easily with a nice glide across the lash line that never pulls or tugs–but it just doesn’t last for me. It migrates and smudges faintly below where I’ve put it after four hours or so. If you love an eyeliner that stays creamy and is incredibly smudge-able, this might be a formula you’d want to work with, but for long-wearing, stay-put eyeliner, not so much. As far as waterproofing goes, it doesn’t dissolve into tracks of gray-black down your face instantly, but it does breakdown a bit and smudges further.

Becca has usually been a quiet but well-done brand in my experience, but this product really fell flat for me. I’m definitely curious to hear if others had better results! I feel like maybe it’s just me, because the brand has nailed so many formulas, it’s hard to believe they’d put out such a disappointing eyeliner.

D+
After four hours, it's already migrated and smudged quite a bit--enough where I'd want to remove it entirely and start anew! It doesn't live up to the waterproof/smudge-proof claims it makes, unfortunately.

    Haha, oh man, I wish I could find an eyeliner that took four hours to smudge on me. Usually, I’m touching up after 1-2 hours no matter what brand I’m wearing.

    It is a pretty black, though, so I’m sorry the formula didn’t work out as intended.

  2. I just love that you question whether others have tried this product with different results. Because it’s true – some products that perform well/badly on one person are just the opposite with someone else.

    Although in this case, I’ll be surprised if that’s it. I’ve come across a few really creamy eyeliners lately, and while they apply like this rich, bold wonder, they tend to wear away unevenly, smudge, etc. I’m starting to wonder if it just can’t be quite that creamy without a tradeoff in performance.

    Becca will probably contact you and ask you to remove this review, I know they have done that to other blogs
