Estee Lauder Burgundy Suede Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil
Estee Lauder Burgundy Suede Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil

Estee Lauder Burgundy Suede Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil ($23.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a darkened burgundy purple with warm undertones and subtle pearly shimmer. It has a very waxy base, so while it glides across the skin without tugging, the color payoff in a single stroke is semi-sheer. It was buildable to mostly opaque color, and while I love the color but don’t find the formula to be particularly long-wearing as it thins after seven hours of wear. MAC Nightshade (LE, $16.00) is similar. Urban Decay Darkside (P, $19.00) is darker. MAC Strong Willed (P, $20.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Raven (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer. bareMinerals 6AM (LE, $15.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Estee Lauder Electric Cobalt Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil ($23.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a brightened, medium blue with a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in a single pass, which was buildable to opaque color in two to three layers. It had the same waxy, glide-on texture that made it comfortable to apply but just not an intensely pigmented product. It wore well for seven hours before migrating towards the outer corner. Kat Von D D.R.A. (P, $10.00) is warmer. Tarina Tarantino Glamorous Thief (P, $15.00) is very similar. Urban Decay Radium (P, $19.00) is very similar. Urban Decay Abyss (P, $19.00) is slightly warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Estee Lauder Emerald Volt Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil ($23.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a darkened green-teal with a pearly sheen. It had mostly opaque pigmentation in one pass, and the texture was better balanced between creamy and waxy, so it glided on, deposited even, rich color, and didn’t run. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Sephora Collection Good Mood (P, $9.00) is greener. Make Up For Ever #52L (LE, $19.00) is lighter. MAC Blue Noon (LE, $16.00) is lighter.

I also love the color of Burgundy Suede. Really sad that it’s not great! About Emerald Volt, I have given you before that I could not wait for your review about it. Not stellar, but better-than-expected (my expectations). Adore it and cannot resist to green eyeliners (smiling face)!!!

I didn’t get to finish before my finger hit the button,lol! I have Sephora’s Good Mood and it does the job pretty well. I think these days you can find pretty good eye pencils for less than that.I have been wanting to get a hold of the Tarino Taratina olive colored one. How do these compare to that formula? I am really liking those pencils! 🙂

With all the beautiful long lasting pencils by Urban Decay, I only use other brands that are gifts. Big time and frustration saver. I do have a sample of a bright blue by Sephora that performs well.

The electric blue and emerald shades are very similar to the Marcelle waterproof liners I have, except those are properly opaque and long lasting!

I will probably swatch – or even better, get the SA to apply – the Burgundy Suede, and see what I think. Not fully opaque isn’t always a problem. But I have the MUFE liner in burgundy (forget the number of the shade, sorry) and it’s gorgeous, so probably a test only for the Estée Lauder one.

Well I am delighted to see that the Emerald Volt colour scored the best rating. It is a truly gorgeous colour, which I can see myself using. Really beautiful. I think this is a colour that you would love too Christine.

I’m so glad the emerald one turned out well – it’s just such a gorgeous colour! Gotta at least make the teal/turquoise work, EL! Good job!

…not such a good job on the others, perhaps… >_<
