Chanel Or Rose Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

Chanel Or Rose Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner
Chanel Or Rose Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

Chanel Or Rose Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($30.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “light rosy beige.” It’s a warm, golden copper; I didn’t get real rosiness–more a mix of champagne, gold, and a copper/bronze aspect that gave it a darker coloring. I couldn’t think of anything similar to this, as nothing in the champagne/nude family compared, and even in my gold eyeliner stash, nothing was quite right (most were much yellower).

I was so hoping to love this, because “rosy beige” sounded like a great way to brighten and open up eyes, but the drier consistency of this made it difficult to apply on the lower lash line. There was a fair amount of pulling and tugging–just not all that comfortable to use. Even swatching, it dragged a little, and the kind of pressure one uses to swatch on the arm is so much more than the amount used on the lash line or lid!

It looked ragged when applied; you know when an eyeliner drags and pulls, so the end result isn’t all that even–the line isn’t crisp and not fully opaque.  The color was great, but the texture needed to be a lot smoother so it could glide on better.  What I did manage to apply stayed on well, though, and I still had the same amount on my lower lash line after eight hours. I couldn’t get this to apply the waterline, though; it just wouldn’t deposit color at all.

bareMinerals Seize the Day Eyeliner Set

bareMinerals Seize the Day Eyeliner Set

It’s Time to Seize the Day!

bareMinerals Seize the Day Round the Clock Eyeliner Set ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes five shades: 10AM (golden sage), Noon (deep navy), 1PM (deep marine), 3PM (deep brown shimmer), and 5PM (deep plum). The formula is supposed to be smooth, bold, long-wearing, and waterproof.

  • 10AM is an olive green with soft khaki shimmer. It had great pigmentation in a single go.
  • Noon is a shimmered navy blue with cool undertones. It had decent pigmentation in one pass.
  • 1PM is a bluish-teal with a matte finish. It was intensely pigmented.
  • 3PM is a warm, copper-shimmered medium-dark brown with orange undertones. It had so-so color payoff in a snigle pass but was buildable.
  • 5PM is a blackened plum with subtle red-brown undertones. This shade was very pigmented.

5PM is full-sized at 0.04 oz., while the other four shades are half-sized at 0.02 oz. each.  Overall, the pigmentation across the pencils was very good–several shades were fully opaque in one pass along the lash line, which isn’t always the case.  Most eyeliners are buildable, but shades like 10AM, 1PM, and 5PM don’t need building at all.  These have a very creamy consistency that enables them to glide across the lash line or lid without pulling, tugging, or skipping.  I’d qualify this formula as one of the softest I’ve come across–which is great in many ways, except for sharpening, where they’re best sharpened after putting them in the freezer for a few minutes.

I did fret over the creaminess when I swatched them, because I feared smudgy, migrating wear, but I didn’t experience that at all.  In fact, these wore incredibly well.  I tested several shades across time periods as long as twelve hours, and since these are supposed to be waterproof, I did shower with them on, too.  They wear and wear without smudging, fading, or migrating.  Between this set and The Night Vision, I think this one is less dupable and is of better quality, due to the majority of the shades having great pigmentation.

Orange and Yellow Eyeliners: Swatches, Dupes, and Comparisons

Orange Eyeliners
Orange Eyeliners: MAC Obviously Orange, MAC Genuine Orange, MAC Primary Yellow

Orange (and Yellow) Eyeliners: Your Guide

It might be safe to say that orange and yellow are the most under-represented colors within the eyeliners that I have! I only found two orange eyeliners, neither similar to the other, and one yellow.  It really makes me want to hunt down others now!

  1. MAC Obviously Orange is a medium orange with subtle red undertones. (LE)
  2. MAC Genuine Orange is a brightened, tangerine orange with a matte finish. (Not listed as eye safe, but I know many still use it, so I included it.)
  3. MAC Primary Yellow is a bright pop of medium yellow with a matte finish.

TEMPTALIA PICKS:  #2 (quality), #3 (quality)

Behind-the-Series:  It was my intention to provide heavy, opaque swatches to provide an accurate color comparison.  Some eyeliners required one pass, some required five, and a few even more.  When possible, the shade name (above) is linked to the original review so you can read more about the quality, wear, etc. of a particular eyeliner.  If we’ve never done a review, there will be no link.  Shades that were limited edition will be marked with “(LE)” and shades that were discontinued will be marked with “(DC)” after the color description.  You can also find all comparisons on The Dupe List.

Pink Eyeliners: Swatches, Dupes, and Comparisons

Pink Eyeliners
Pink Eyeliners: Tarina Tarantino Broken Doll, MAC Full of Fuchsia, MUFE #13L, UD Woodstock, UD Asphyxia

Pink Eyeliners: Your Guide

I didn’t have a lot of pink eyeliners, but these were the few that I did have, and you can see that within the five, there aren’t any dupes.

  1. TARINA TARANTINO BROKEN DOLL is a pale, shimmering pink. I didn’t find any dupes for it.
  2. MAC FULL OF FUCSHIA is a fuchsia pink with a subtle iridescent sheen. (LE)
  3. MAKE UP FOR EVER #13L is a medium pink with a metallic sheen. It is lighter than the other pinks.
  4. URBAN DECAY WOODSTOCK is a vibrant fuchsia-red pink with a metallic sheen. It is less cool-toned compared to MAC Full of Fuchsia.
  5. URBAN DECAY ASPHYXIA is a pinky-purple with a violet iridescence. (LE) Compared to these pinks, it is much purpler.

TEMPTALIA PICKS:  #1 (good for brightening), #4 (wears well)

These Visions Last the Night

bareMinerals The Night Vision Round the Clock Eyeliner Set ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) includes five shades: 11PM (dark charcoal), Midnight (blackout), 4AM (blue teal), 5AM (metallic champagne), and 6AM (royal purple). The formula is supposed to be smooth, bold, long-wearing, and waterproof.

  • 11PM is a darkened gray. It builds well, but in one pass, it had rather weak pigmentation.
  • Midnight is a rich black with brown undertones. It is incredibly pigmented in a single go.
  • 4AM is a light-medium sky blue with a touch of silver micro-shimmer. It had so-so pigmentation in a single glide but was buildable.
  • 5AM is a silver-gold-champagne-pewter. It changes depending on the angle–at one, it looks pewter, then the next, it looks almost golden. This is the one shade I have nothing that even comes close to.
  • 6AM is a red-toned purple with subtle shimmer and a metallic finish. It was the least pigmented of the five, and it wasn’t as creamy as the other shades.

Midnight is full-sized at 0.04 oz., while the other four shades are half-sized at 0.02 oz. each. All of the shades, except 5AM, are definitely dupable. 5AM is nothing like anything else I have in my stash, and it’s intriguing and versatile, because of how much of a chameleon it is. I hope that bareMinerals makes it part of their permanent range at some point.

The texture of bareMinerals’ Round the Clock Eyeliners is very, very creamy and incredibly soft. They almost feel as if they’re melting into the skin, because they have a texture that’s a bit like softened butter. I expected that the creaminess paired with the softness would result in poor wear, but these actually stayed on and on and on, through showers and over a twelve-hour time period. They even managed eight hours or longer on my water line.  Frankly, it was a bit like magic, because these are so creamy and buttery–definitely one of the softest eyeliners I’ve used so go easy on the pressure, because you don’t need much to deposit even color that just glides right no. I will note that sharpening these is best performed slowly or after leaving them in the freeze for a few minutes!

White Eyeliners: Your Guide

In my stash, I had four matte white eyeliners and three shimmery/metallic white eyeliners, and I’ve compared them in this post.  The finding? The matte white eyeliners are completely dupes of each other across all four shades, while the metallic white eyeliners are nearly dupes of each other, with one being minutely less bright.  I like using white eyeliner to lighten other colors or to act as a base color when using eyeshadow on the lower lash line.

  1. DOLCE & GABBANA WHITE is a bright, creamy white. It is similar to the three other matte white pencils I have: MAC Pure White, MAC Fascinating, and NARS Santa Monica Blvd.
  2. MAC PURE WHITE is a crystal clear creamy white. It is similar to the three other matte white pencils I have: Dolce & Gabbana White, MAC Fascinating, and NARS Santa Monica Blvd.
  3. MAC FASCINATING is a bright white with a matte finish. It is similar to the three other matte white pencils I have: Dolce & Gabbana White, MAC Pure White, and NARS Santa Monica Blvd.
  4. NARS SANTA MONICA BLVD. is a pure white a matte finish. It is similar to the three other matte white pencils I have: Dolce & Gabbana White, MAC Pure White, and MAC Fascinating.
  5. URBAN DECAY YEYO is a silvery-white — it’s not 100% white on me, there is a little bit of silver sheen to it, but it’s close. It is very similar to Tarina Tarantino Crystal Gun; a touch starker compared to MUFE #14L.
  6. MAKE UP FOR EVER #14L is a brightened, metallic white. It is not quite as stark/bright compared to both UD Yeyo and Tarina Tarantino Crystal Gun–but realistically, the difference is nearly imperceptible when applied.
  7. TARINA TARANTINO CRYSTAL GUN is a bright, metallic-finished white.  It is exactly like UD Yeyo and a touch brighter compared to MUFE #14L.

TEMPTALIA PICKS:  #2 (wears the best), #5 (most pigmented, balanced between creamy/soft)
