NARS High-Pigment Longwear Eyeliner ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a new, permanent range of eyeliners available in 16 shades, which are ranked from best to worst. The formula is supposed to have “12-hour wear” that is “humidity” and “sweat-proof” while also being “water-resistant” and “transfer-resistant.”
The texture definitely felt a bit gel-like, as intended, as the product glided across my skin without tugging or dragging, and the pigmentation seemed a bit inkier and richer. They’re creamier–but not too creamy–than previous iterations of the formula, and they wore significantly better than most of NARS’ pencils have for me.
Some shades lasted longer than others, but most shades were semi-opaque to opaque in pigmentation, comfortable to apply, went on evenly, and were easy to use. Most lasted for eight to ten hours on my lower lash line with wear on my water line being six to eight hours in most instances. They didn’t fade/thin on me cleanly; they did migrate to the outer corner (occasionally the inner corner), though.
