During Sephora’s sale earlier this year, I saw this formula and loved that they came in smaller sizes because the price tag was also smaller–and you know me, I love all things teal. It was surprisingly a let-down, because the texture was waxy but stubborn so it tugged and pulled at the lash line. Then, the color payoff was uneven and semi-opaque. I really couldn’t build-up the color well enough to get rich, opaque color. It’s supposed to last eight hours and be waterproof, too, and on me, it lasted six hours well, and it had migrated to the outer corners somewhat by the eighth hour. It seemed water-resistant but did smudge slightly when I rubbed at it with water.

Quick Review: Kat Von D Black Metal Love Autograph Pencil
Kat Von D Black Metal Love Autograph Pencil ($18.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark black base with silver micro-glitter. It also looks like there are flecks of teal in it when the light hits just right. Sephora describes it as a “matte black with silver micro-glitter.” If you were hoping for a deep dark black–from descriptions only–it sounds like Puro Amor may be the one to consider. It also has a sharpener in the cap and a smudging sponge on the other end.
It’s a very smooth, creamy formula that’s easy to smudge, but takes a few extra seconds to dry down–great for smudging purposes, and if you close your eyes tightly for a few seconds, you can even get some tight-lining done. Since it has glitter in the formula, I kept it away from my water line but wore it on my lower lash line and had good results. I had some fading after four or five hours, but it looked about 80% there after eight.
Welcome to Swatch-all-idays! To start 2011 off on the right foot (or post, as it may be!), Temptalia is going through a backlog of products we have photographed, swatched, and often tested but in a slightly different manner. Quick reviews may be partially incomplete, such as a blush may only be swatched on the arm rather than shown on the face. It is our hope that what we are able to provide is still helpful!

Ease of Use: 4/5
RECOMMENDATION: The creaminess of the formula made it incredibly easy to work with, but I wish it lasted a bit better.
