Leave Me Breathless

About Face Leave Me Breathless Line Artist Longwear Gel Eyeliner ($13.00 for 0.012 oz.) is a light pink with moderate, warmer undertones and a satin finish.

  • Semi-sheer color coverage in one layer
  • Prone to applying unevenly, pushing itself around
  • Creamier, smooth texture but did not look it on
  • Prone to fading (6.5 hours of wear)

Formula Overview

$13.00/0.012 oz. - $1083.33 Per Ounce

The gel eyeliner formula is supposed to have "intense pigment" in "one-stroke application" that is smudge-proof, sweat-proof, and waterproof. I found they were medium to mostly opaque, fairly buildable, and long-wearing enough to hang with a good eyeliner but not extraordinarly long-wear.

Most of the shades had a smooth, glide-on texture that comfortably applied across my skin, lower lash line, and curvature of the lid without skipping or tugging, but they didn't crease/settle into fine lines as they dried down.

They tended to thin noticeably after eight to nine hours of wear, which is a little longer than typical, and I've had the longest wear for eyeliner closer to 10 to 12 hours, but most tend to wear around eight on me for reference.

I like these a lot. The colors are a bit tweaked to be different…as we see in the so-few-dupes listings. I got Bird of Paradise and Call Me Crazy and really enjoy them. Of course, T told me I didn’t need So Important, as I have the UD dupes. T is a very valuable service to all of us.
