MAC Grey Tide, Groundbreaker, Long Espresso Modern Twist Kajal Liners

MAC Modern Twist Kajal Liner ($17.00 for 0.01 oz.) is supposed to be an “easy-glide formula” with a “soft texture that’s perfect for rimming the sensitive waterline” that has “colour intensity and extreme depth” in a “long-wearing waterproof formula.” It’s a slim, twist-up eyeliner thas has light slip–not enough to slide around too easily but enough not to tug–with semi-opaque to mostly opaque coverage in one stroke. They felt creamier rather than waxy to me. On me, the formula wore between six and nine hours on me before noticeably thinning. None of them lasted for more than a few hours on the waterline, and some shades applied better/worse on the waterline. Some shades flaked while they wore, between four and six hours in (noted by the shade). The new formula launches on February 25th online and in-stores March 3rd.

Guerlain Blackjack & Khaki Driver Kohl Contour Eye Pencil

Guerlain Kohl Contour Eye Pencil ($31.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a new formula launching this spring, which will be available in five shades. I tried two of the five, which are reviewed below. The formula is supposed to be long-wearing, water-resistant, creamy, and pigmented. This pencil will need to be sharpened and includes one with the pencil. They’re an average eyeliner; not bad, not ground-breaking–the wear is decent but pigmentation could be better. The texture is a cross between creamy and waxy, so they glide well but still deposit even, smooth color without a lot of work.

Lancome Cote d’Azur & Pluie Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner

Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is supposed to be a richly pigmented, long-wearing (24 hour wear, no seriously, that’s how it’s marketed), waterproof, and creamy pencil eyeliner. This review features the two matte shades I bought, which I felt were longer-wearing compared to the shimmery shades I tried. The texture of the pencils is moderately creamy and doesn’t tug, so they apply nicely and lay down decently color in a single pass. The wear was all over the place for the eyeliners I happened to buy, from five hours to twelve hours. There is still color intact even after fifteen hours, but it was always significantly thinner.

Lancome Paradis & Lame Drama Liqui-Pencil Eyeliner

Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliner ($23.00 for 0.042 oz.) is supposed to be a richly pigmented, long-wearing (24 hour wear, no seriously, that’s how it’s marketed), waterproof, and creamy pencil eyeliner. I bought four shades to try–two shimmery, two more matte–and I’m reviewing the two shimmery shades in this post. The texture of the pencils is moderately creamy and doesn’t tug, so they apply nicely and lay down decently color in a single pass. The wear was all over the place for the eyeliners I happened to buy, from five hours to twelve hours. There is still color intact even after fifteen hours, but it was always significantly thinner.

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliners (x5)

Zoeva Graphic Eyes Eyeliner ($7.50 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be a smooth, pigmented, long-wearing, and waterproof eyeliner. Overall, I liked the formula; it had good wear-time, buildable pigmentation (typically semi-opaque in one stroke), and enough creaminess that there wasn’t any tugging during application. Their color range was a little more unique from the shades I bought, but they also had some more typical shades like black, brown, etc.
