NARS Bourbon Street Larger Than Life Eyeliner

NARS Bourbon Street Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.02 oz.) is described as “purple.” It’s a subtly red-based, medium purple with a very fine misting of reddened purple shimmer. It has a rather faded look to it, overall, because the pigmentation is not as dense as it looks in the pencil. The shade is more of an eggplant purple than a violet or blue-based purple, so it will complement hazel and brown eyes quite well. It’s less plum than many of my other comparable eyeliners, so I wasn’t able to find any that I felt were that similar.

NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner Swatches Sneak Peek

NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.02 oz.) is a new (and permanent) long-wearing pencil eyeliner that is available in nine shades (though two have not yet been made available online). They’re touted to have 12-hour wear with no smearing or caking. Each eyeliner twists up and also has a built-in sharpener. I’m not ready to write-up a full review quite yet (one trial does not a review make!), but so far, my experience has been positive–and I was worried, because I had a terrible experience with NARS Eyeliner Pencils previously.

Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliners Swatches, Photos, Review, Dupes

There are many, many variations of this liquid eyeliner, which tells you a lot about the efficacy of the formula if so many brands have brought it into their lines. I find the formula, on the major points, to be largely the same and consistent across the different brands, but there are subtle differences in the consistency of the liquid liner itself as well as the applicator. The outer packaging only differs in labeling, color, and branding, but the caps are the same length and the ends have the same design. There are some similarities in color across the brands, but there are several shades that you will only find in one brand–the ones that overlap tend to be more basic shades like black.

Hourglass Jett Script Precision Liquid Liner

Like many black liquid eyeliners, it does have a tendency to photograph brown in swatches, though it does look like a medium black in real life. It’s not an ultra deep black, but it’s not a soft black either; it’s a happy medium of the two. It applies smoothly, gliding on with ease, and the color is distributed evenly without dragging. There’s no patchiness in the color, so you won’t have to go back over the same area twice. When swatched on my arm, it did bleed around the edges, but I did not notice any bleeding until I was cropping the swatch photograph. I didn’t spot any bleeding eyeliner when I tested it on my eyelid, but it does make me want to note that it might do so if you have more wrinkly eyelids.
