Nude

NABLA Cosmetics Nude Cupid’s Arrow Longwear Stylo ($18.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy brown with warmer undertones and a matte finish. It was almost coral-like due to the warmth, but it lacked the brightness of most coral hues.

  • Opaque pigmentation in one stroke
  • Smooth, emollient texture allowed for glide-on application without tugging
  • Dried down in 5 to 10 seconds, need to work quickly if blending/diffusing edges
  • Long-wearing (8 hours before fading/creasing)

Formula Overview

$18.00/0.03 oz. - $600.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "long-lasting, rich, and creamy" with "immediate full color pay-off" that is "extremely easy to use and to blend." There is also a built-in sharpener. They are a cross between a more traditional eye crayon and an eyeliner, so the point and thickness of the pencil was smaller and finer than a crayon but more substantial than an eyeliner.

They had a consistency that was smooth, comfortable, and creamy, which ensured they applied fluidly across skin and the curvature of the lid without dragging or pulling on skin. It also resulted in more even coverage for most shades, and the coverage was typically semi-opaque to opaque and buildable.

The formula was blendable initially but was still on the quicker side to dry down--more like an eyeliner than a cream eyeshadow in that respect--but by working one eye at a time and blending as it was applied, a more diffused edge was doable. Most shades wore well for eight to nine hours before thinning/fading as eyeliner or creasing as eyeshadow.

Berry

NABLA Cosmetics Berry Cupid’s Arrow Longwear Stylo ($18.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a deep burgundy with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It was one of the few under-performers in the range

  • Semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke
  • Smooth, emollient texture allowed for glide-on application without tugging
  • Applied unevenly, tended to build up on itself when layered
  • Dried down in 5 to 10 seconds, need to work quickly if blending/diffusing edges
  • Long-wearing (8 hours before fading/creasing)

Black

NABLA Cosmetics Black Cupid’s Arrow Longwear Stylo ($18.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark black with a matte finish. It was not as intense as most black eyeliners on the market (at least these days), which some may prefer.

  • Semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke
  • Smooth, lightly emollient texture allowed for glide-on application without tugging
  • Could have applied more evenly
  • Dried down in 5 to 10 seconds, need to work quickly if blending/diffusing edges
  • Long-wearing (8 hours before fading/creasing)

Ah, Nabla… A single shade that is called “Nude” and which is, you guessed it, a beige. How 21st century of you.
If only these were made into a range of nudes for different skin tones, with such a quality…
