Cobalt Matte

Haus Labs Cobalt Matte Optic Intensity Eyeliner Pencil ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a vivid, medium-dark cobalt blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish.

  • Opaque coverage
  • Smooth, glide-on consistency, did not tug
  • Applied evenly, was comfortable to use
  • Long-wearing (eight hours on lower lash line, six hours on waterline was typical)

Formula Overview

$22.00/0.04 oz. - $550.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "high-impact" color with "long-wear" that is "waterproof" and "glides like a liquid." The majority of the eyeliners had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, which was quite good for a pencil eyeliner. The matte shades tended to have the highest and most even coverage compared to the shimmers, which were less consistent.

The texture was lightweight, smooth, and creamy without being too emollient, though they are good for smudging and take longer than average (but not THAT long!) to dry down.

I did not find the wear to be exceptional; they were solid and wore around eight hours on the lower lash line before thinning noticeably, while they had decent (six-hour) wear on my water line. Both lengths of wear are average for pencil eyeliner for me with the longer-wearing formulas getting closer to 10 to 12 hour wear.

Amethyst Matte

Haus Labs Amethyst Matte Optic Intensity Eyeliner Pencil ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.)

  • Medium, buildable coverage
  • Smooth, glide-on consistency, did not tug but was overly emollient/wet
  • Took longer to dry down, more prone to smudging
  • Medium-wearing as it had a tendency to migrate/smudge after six hours of wear

Deep Cocoa Matte

Haus Labs Deep Cocoa Matte Optic Intensity Eyeliner Pencil ($22.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep, red-toned brown with cool undertones and a matte finish. I’d recommend applying a second layer to even out the application after giving the first layer a few seconds to dry.

  • Semi-opaque, buildable coverage
  • Smooth, glide-on consistency, did not tug
  • Applied fairly evenly, was comfortable to use
  • Long-wearing (eight hours on lower lash line, six hours on waterline was typical)

I love the colour of this pencil. Blue makes brown eyes pop and seems to make the whites of eyes appear whiter. I’m still not sure about this brand. It still has an Amazon vibe to it so based upon the trusted review here I will try it but only on sale.
