If you’ve read this blog before you’ll know I have oily eyelids.
They’re very annoying and mean I can’t just use standard mascara or eyeshadow without a primer. It also means I have a massive pain trying to find an eyeliner that doesn’t make me look like Alice Cooper within an hour.
Enter Yves Saint Laurent and their waterproof eyeliner promising 16 hour wear. I bought this while out shopping with Ed and he did a doubletake when it was rung up at the till – £20! I’d tried this out before though when it came bundled as part of a fragrance free gift so I knew it would be worth it. I love the matt black packaging on the pencil and the pencil sharpener is a nice touch.
This pencil is very easy to apply. It’s soft enough that you could smudge it for a smoky look or just leave it as a fine line. I think this is softer than the sample that I’d tried in the past though which meant that its staying power wasn’t as great as I remembered. After over 12 hours of wear though it was just in the inner corners of my eyes that looked anything less than perfect which is a better result than any other waterproof eyeliner I’ve used.
I’m really happy with this eyeliner and as my first YSL piece of make up I think I’d be up for trying more in the future. If you have any recommendations let me know in the comments below.
