LORAC Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is supposed to be a long-wearing, waterproof pencil eyeliner that is “highly pigmented.” It’s a decent formula, but there are better ones on the market–for a late entry in the market like this, I wanted these to perform better. They’re water-resistant, but they will smudge somewhat if you rub or apply pressure to them with any water–if you just dabbed with a tissue (e.g. you teared up), they hold up fine. The overall wear was on the shorter side, averaging between seven and eight hours, with a waxy consistency that glided well across the skin but sometimes had a faded, muted look applied.

LORAC Aqua Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a muted blue with a hint of green–not enough to be a teal–and silver sparkle. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, and it didn’t build up too much beyond that, though it was fairly even applied. It wore well for seven hours before noticeably smudging. Kat Von D Dali (P, $19.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Sweet Star (LE, $29.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Siahi (P, $16.00) is darker (85% similar).

LORAC Dark Green Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a muted, dark forest green with subtle, warm olive undertones and lighter gold and emerald green shimmer. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in a single pass, but it was creamy enough that the color built up well to mostly opaque coverage without becoming uneven. I liked this one the most out of the three I bought. NARS Night Porter (P, $24.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). Sephora Go For a Ride (P, $10.00) is brighter, more pigmented, better quality (95% similar). Urban Decay Zodiac (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Devotion (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sephora T-Rex (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Fenty Beauty Nepturnt (LE, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty O(vert) (56) (P, $25.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Swamped (P, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Stila Midnight Green (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Chanel Legendary Green (857) (LE, $33.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

LORAC Nude Front of the Line PRO Eye Pencil ($20.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a light beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in one go, and it had a light-medium creaminess to it that made it easy to apply to the lash line without tugging. I only got seven hours of wear out of this shade before it had migrated/smudged. Kat Von D Swanly (P, $18.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Rue Bonaparte (P, $24.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Risque (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Nude (P, $9.00) is lighter (90% similar). Sephora Coconut (P, $10.00) is darker (85% similar). Colour Pop HoneyDude (LE, $5.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Walk of Shame (P, $20.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I was hoping these would do a little better. I noticed the Dark Green in a few of the “Eye Looks” you have done and it’s quite pretty. But, I have Sephora’s Go For a Ride and it seems to be better. I agree-just better pencils at tis or lower price points. Any chance you have the grey one?

The colors are pretty, and they are nice for a more muted look, but at $20, it needs to outperform liners that are much cheaper, and it doesn’t. The Sephora Contour Matte Gel one is only $14. Espresso is crazy long-wearing. I was walking around for 2 hours in 85 F weather, no shade, sweating like crazy, and it never budged on my oily lids. The Bare Minerals Round the Clock for $16 also wears like iron. As soon as a sale hits, I’m probably going to grab one in every color.

Thanks for the heads up on these! They’re not all that impressive, especially considering that I have better quality dupes for two of these. I’ll glady take Sephora Go For A Ride and MAC Siahi over these any day.

Remind me what nude eyeliners are for? I use an NYX stick similar to this to dab onto red spots at the corners of my nose, etc., and a clear liner to help apply matte lip products…..but not sure how a “nude” or other flesh-colored pencil is used for eyes.

Ohhh – love that blue and forest green – gorgeous colours. But I don’t know that I would pay that much for an eye pencil that wasn’t so great.

I personally love these especially the Violet shade. We sell them at Kohl’s I believe that there’s a 15 second setting time, from what the Lorac Pro had told me but there’s been times where I’ve swatched these on my hand and throughout the day washed my hands and they still didn’t budge. The only downside for me is the sharpener but I find the color selection and formula pretty nice
