Buxom Door’s Unlocked Hold the Line Eyeliner

Buxom Door’s Unlocked Hold the Line Eyeliner ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “metallic purple.” It’s a brightened, medium-dark violet purple with fuchsia undertones and a satiny sheen. In a single pass, it had rather weak color payoff, and it was only buildable to about semi-opaque color (about 80%). The consistency was a bit drier compared to other shades, though it wore well for ten hours before starting to thin. Urban Decay Ransom is very similar. MAC Designer Purple is darker, less fuchsia-toned. See comparison swatches.

I’ll Be Waiting Hold the Line Eyeliner ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “sparkling gunmetal gray.” It’s a medium silver-shimmered gray with a pearly sheen. It’s a bit darker than most silvers, but it is more metallic than just a gray shade. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke, and it was slightly drier (but I wouldn’t describe it as dry, it was still quite creamy and glided across the skin easily) and only layered to semi-opaque color. It lasted nine and a half hours on my lower lash line and then started to thin. Bobbi Brown Chrome is lighter, more silver. Chanel Gris Scintillante is darker. See comparison swatches.

Pick Me Up Hold the Line Eyeliner ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “sparkling denim blue.” It’s a brightened navy blue with a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one layer, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color in two to three layers. This shade wore well for ten and a half hours before fading. MAC Blue Stripe is a touch darker. MAC Petrol Blue is darker. See comparison swatches.

Ring My Bell Hold the Line Eyeliner ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as an “emerald green.” It’s a medium-dark, blue-tinged green with a matte finish. It had so-so color payoff in a single stroke, but it was buildable to opaque color in two to three layers. It wore well for ten and a half hours and then began to fade. Revlon Emerald is a touch bluer. Sephora Good Mood is shimmery. Make Up For Ever #4K is similar. See comparison swatches.

Hold the Line Waterproof Eyelinersr ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) are supposed to “glide on like a gel” and wear for 14 hours. The formula is also supposed to be waterproof, transfer- and smudge-proof. I’ve been wearing these eyeliners on and off for the past few weeks, and while I like the formula a lot, a few of these shades could use more pigmentation, and of course, they don’t deliver on the 14 hours of wear as promised. They’re very long-wearing, relative to other eyeliners, at ten hours or so (on average), but it is significantly short of 14. The pencils had a creamy, glide-on consistency that didn’t skip or tug on the lash line.

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I am still looking for a eyeliner pencil that won’t run on me. I’ve tried many many brands, they all last few hours tops. I’ve tired GA eyes to kill water proof, UD 24/7 pencil, Nars larger than life, Milani liquid eye, Makeupforever aqua eyes…..and other korean, asian cosmetic brands…nothing stays on more then 2 hours. Only liner worked for me so far is Kiss me liquid eyeliner ( japanese brand). I will give this a try and hopefully it works!
