I placed an order with Sephora a couple weeks ago and received my order this past Friday. I ended up picking up a few things, one of which being a NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner. I decided on the shade "Rue Bonaparte" which is light almond in colour with the intention of using it on my waterline as a more natural way to brighten the eye area without using the stark contrast of a white pencil. Previously, I was using MAC "Fascinating" Eye Kohl, but found the white to be too harsh for my NC30/40 skintone. When I first opened the product I applied a line to the back of my hand and tried to smudge it. It held up to the first test and was smudgeproof. Next, I wore the pencil on my waterline to a wedding this past weekend. The eyeliner wore very well on my waterline, which typically most pencils wear off within the first few hours. I left for the wedding at 4 and got home around 2 am and the liner was slightly fading, but still there. Another plus is the pencil glides on effortlessly and does not tug or pull at the skin.
"Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner takes liner to the next level. Rich, creamy color that glides on smoothly with a completely budgeproof finish. Incomparable 12-hour wear with no smearing and no caking. Deeply dramatic shades named for the most iconic streets in the world."
