A creamy, long wearing charcoal eyeliner that glides on smoothly, never pulling, skipping, or slipping. Once applied, it won’t transfer or smudge. Unlike most waterproof formulas, it even holds up to tears.
Finally a pencil that is perfect. If you want to spend a little more money for the best eyeliner on the market you have found it. Going on feels like butter on my eyes. I can pencil my lines without having to tug my eyelids or hurt the delicate muscles around the eyes. No skipping or grittiness that I would feel in other pencils. The formula does take a few minutes to set, which gives you time to correct your mistakes for a clean line, or flip the pencil around to the rubber end and smudge everything to a smoky eye look. But once the pencil sets good luck trying to get it off! I have go on a few nights with dinner, partying, and late night munchies wearing this as my eyeliner. My liner never budged. My stamina ran out before my Too Faced eyeliner did. Black Orchid is a very dark purple. Maybe a few shades above black. Certain angles of light really bring out the purple. The color is unexpected and I love it. My go-to when I'm tired of black eyeliner. If I'm tired of dark eyeliners in general I switch it up with Peacock, a teal blue that is my favorite color. I don't wear this too often because most of my wardrobe is teal. The teal really brings out my brown eyes. The color is so intense I would keep my other features neutral (sheer lipgloss, light bronzer on my cheeks) to balance out my look.
This eyeliner slides on smoothly but after a couple of minutes it slid into my contacts and made me have foggy vision!! I would clean my contacts and it's happen again until I wiped all the eyeliner off my water line. I really DO NOT suggest for contact users.
Was excited to get this product on sephoras 12 dollar sale but was sadly dissapointed. The product was to creamy and smudgy for my liking and I just got it everywhere on my eye. I honestly just took it off and put the product away, not before however the mushy tip broke right off. I am considering putting it in the fridge for a night to see if it helps, but so far my vote is no.
Cons- I have used better. It doesn't stay on my top waterline for more than an hour, and also makes my contacts extremely foggy EVERY time I put it on my waterline. Sits in creases (I don't have oily skin so it has no reason to run either). It is a mess when I try washing it off, I have to clean my eyes with eye makeup remover about 2-4 times because it just continually runs off. Pros- It does create a pretty smokey eye easily (though it only stays put for a bit), the sponge on the end is useful. Good pigment. Goes on easily. Will not buy again specifically because of the contacts issue, it would probably work better for those who don't wear contacts.
Too Faced Perfect Peacock is the only teal I like on my waterline. I trace ABOVE my lower lash line and around the inside corner with Perfect Peacock. Then I trace ABOVE my upper lash line and around my outer corner with Perfect Black. I like to use the bright liner first and fix mistakes after applying black.
My eyes are deep green (money green) and my skin is freckled and black is often too much for me. This color is the perfect deep shade of Moss, literally. It's not shimmery or green it's sophisticated enough to replace black for my skin tone. I'm so happy. Even better, I forgot to apply primer and with serious inset eyes that normally means a zerox copy on the hoods - nothing. Not a smudge top or bottom and no irritation. In love...
