Smoky Gold

MAC Smoky Gold Snow Ball Eye Bag ($39.50 for 0.55 oz.) includes an easy-to-wear duo featuring a light gold and dark, warm taupe along with a dark brown eyeliner and mascara. For review purposes, the mascara is not included in the review. The eyeshadows were fairly easy to work with, and I expect if you normally use a primer or like to use your shimmery eyeshadows with a dampened brush, you’ll enjoy the eyeshadows quite a bit. The eyeliner was comfortable to use and long-wearing.

MAC Smoky Pink Snow Ball Eye Bag ($39.50 for 0.55 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio of products housed in a holiday makeup bag. For review purposes, I am not reviewing the mascara, only the eyeliner and eyeshadow duo. There was only one new shade within the kit (Light of the Silvery Moon). If you normally use your eyeshadows with a dampened brush, you’ll probably have no trouble using the duo, but I did find the formula to feel a little drier and looser in the pan compared to past Extra Dimension eyeshadows.

Later, Crater

Fenty Beauty Later, Crater Eclipse 2-In-1 Glitter Release Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.13 oz.) is a light, golden brown with warm undertones and flecks of gold sparkle. When rubbed to reveal the sparkle, it became a bit less warm-toned, more gilded and sparkly. This one transformed the most for me to my eye. The consistency was very fluid, which made it less easy to control, though it was opaque and long-wearing (10 hours with minimal fallout).

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.13 oz. - $153.85 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to transform from "low-key metallic" to "high-impact sparkle" after rubbing lightly across the dried-down eyeliner. The texture is incredibly fluid, which worked well for getting really smooth, opaque lines that went on forever, but it was harder to control the lines themselves. Someone who prefers or is used to a brush-type applicator and a more fluid eyeliner formula may have no trouble but those who aren't may find it more challenging. They were incredibly rich in pigment, so any wobbles are extremely obvious and harder to correct. I recommend waiting a couple of minutes to ensure the eyeliner is completely dry before rubbing. They were long-wearing--they were going strong after 10 hours of wear--with minimal fallout over time.

Urban Decay Stix and Bones Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

Stix and Bones

Urban Decay Stix and Bones Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a shimmer base of blackened plum with warm, brown undertones and larger flecks of green, plum, and copper glitter. It had semi-sheer coverage, which was somewhat buildable, but the darker base made it appear more uneven and patchy when used on its own. When layered over something deeper (like brown or black eyeliner), it looked sparkly and pretty. This shade stayed on well for nine hours with minimal fallout.

Formula Overview

$20.00/0.25 oz. - $80.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "buildable" with "superfine glitter" that "dries down quickly and really stays put." For more opaque coverage, the brand recommends removing the wiper (the black component inside the opening of the tube) to get a lot more product on the brush, though I've found this to be messy and easy to over-apply (with a very long dry-down time). When the wiper is left in, it is a fairly sheer to semi-sheer coverage product that is difficult to get in a long, even line. My best advice is to apply in short strokes and going back for more product as needed or use a separate brush to apply. Once in place, the formula lasts a really long time--eight to nine hours--with minimal fallout.

Pyro

Urban Decay Pyro Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($20.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a clear base with multi-colored glitter that seemed to shift a bit. It had semi-sheer “coverage” in the form of glitter but it performed best layered over something more opaque (like another eyeliner). The eyeliner was thin, watery, but it spread fairly evenly in a single stroke. It wore well for nine hours with minimal fallout.

Legendary Green (857)

Chanel Legendary Green (857) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep, forest green with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. The consistency was smooth and lightly creamy, so it glided across the skin without skipping or tugging but did not slide around or smudge. It wore well for nine hours on my lower lash line before starting to fade noticeably.

Chanel’s holiday collection will be available October 16th online and November 2017 at counters.

Formula Overview

$33.00/0.01 oz. - $3300.00 Per Ounce

The Stylo Yeux formula is supposed to be a “waterproof, smudge-proof” eyeliner with a “gentle, soft” texture. I gave up on this formula bit ago, as the majority of shades I had tried had a really firm, stiff, and painful-to-use texture, but new releases have much improved!

They are much, much creamier without being too wet, so they didn’t transfer or migrate easily. The formula was easy (and not painful!) to use even on my waterline. The eyeliners lasted nine hours or more on me.
