Editor's Review

The formula is supposed to have “intense color payoff” with “12-hour longwear” with a “bold matte finish” that is supposed to be waterproof and “well-suited” for the waterline. The majority of the shades are very pigmented with mostly opaque to fully opaque coverage in a single pass, while the texture is creamy but dries down within ten to fifteen seconds.

They wear shorter on the waterline (six to nine hours) and longer on the lower lash line (nine to twelve hours). The formula is fantastic for lining, but the one thing that makes me hesitate is that the past iterations of the liners have dried out in as little as one year (with some lasting two years or longer), though I have noticed the more shimmery shades are first to dry out.

I am foreveron the lookout for a good red liner to use on my waterline and I can finally say I have found it. I also wear contacts and I have found no problems with this liner clouding up my contacts. It glides on very smoothly and does not tug. I usually line my waterline and give it a few mins and than go back and line again to amp the color up. It also stays pretty good for a few hours despite my sometimes watery eyes. I also wanted to say that NYX Faux Blacks liners in Oxblood is a really good dupe for this. I think its probably the closet out of the other dupes that are listed.
