If you’re ready to talk eyeliner…you’re definitely in the right place. If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile then you know what a HUGE fan of Lancome I am. I was raised on the brand & a Lancome Juicy Tube was my first high-end makeup purchase with my own money. Pretty big stuff right there for a makeup lover! Today I’m sharing the new Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencils…& how absolutely incredible they are. Keep reading to check out these truly unique liners!
This eyeliner has the high intensity color of a liquid liner and the ease of application of a pencil. Glide on smooth color while giving eyes maximum color intensity and all-day wear. Featuring a creamy, instantly blendable formula, it sets quickly for 24-hour wear—without budging or fading.
So what makes these unique to my collection? I mean- you guys know I have more than a ton of eyeliners. Let’s start with the shade range since that’s probably the most exciting aspect for me. A high-end brand that actually included bright shades? WHAT? This is basically unheard of & I dare you to go hunt down a creamy yellow like this at the makeup counter. Seriously- I’ll wait. Because it just isn’t a common thing. I feel like Lancome thought, “Did you guys hear Stephanie needs long-wearing eyeliners in a rainbow of colors?” & then accomplished it & then some.
Not into colorful shades like I am & getting ready to panic & then possibly run away screaming? Shhh let me soothe your soul. Lancome also has gorgeous neutrals- & THE must-have pencil that I will now be recommending to everyone by name. I get asked a lot about “nude” pencils & how they work. I try to talk to other fair-skinned gals about the whole “brightening aspect” but to also be careful because some nudes just look funny on our porcelain skin- especially in a matte or cream formula. The shade Lamé is what I’ve been trying to explain all this time but without the hassle of “toning down” or “brightening up” shades. Whether you love brights, smokes, neutrals, or are just here for the pictures & rarely wear eyeliner- buy Lamé. It is a very pale neutral metallic that INSTANTLY brightens eyes & these are so creamy it can even double as an inner corner highlight on the lid. Okay but really- buy Lamé. Now I guess I’ll stop giving you orders & actually dive into the entire color spectrum!
Let me just show off the range here for a minute…wow. Just wow. Do you see that pink appropriately named Macaron? I’m sorry but YAAS. & if you’re a neutral lover I really hope you’ll look really hard at Embrase & Pluie. You’re probably rolling your eyes because gray doesn’t sound important. But see- you shouldn’t. Really. Because Embrase is actually a shimmering shade with a touch of khaki & Pluie is the most stunning taupe-based gray ever. Go forth & swatch. Or keep reading to see them because…obviously I swatched them according to the title.
Left to right we have Ampoulé (a thicker shimmering purple), Soleil (a creamy canary yellow), French Lace (a matte creamy stark white), Noir Intense (the ultimate darkest black), Lumiére ( a stunning metallic silver), Minuit (the deepest navy blue), Baroque ( a pink-toned lavender. *one of the most unique shades!), & Pluie (a creamy taupe-based-gray).
Left to right we have Brûlée (a deep bark brown), Lamé (described as a metallic white gold- check out my description above if you missed it!), Pacifique ( a creamy matte grassy green), Côte D’azur (a vibrant royal blue), Embrase (a strongly kahki-leaning grey with a pale golden glitter), Paradís ( a tropical blue/green metallic), & Macaron (a very creamy bright pink with a dash of pink sparkle). There is also a shade called Parisian Night which I don’t have that is described as a “pearlized midnight blue“.
This shade range is incredible! But all of that means nothing if they aren’t a fantastic formula. & why yes, yes they are. These wear like IRON. You can apply these & then just chill because they aren’t going anywhere. Even in my waterline these hold up incredibly well. You should’ve seen my husband’s face after I swatched all of these & they still looked perfect on my wrist when he got home. Even he was impressed…& he honestly doesn’t notice things like that because random swatches covering my body are pretty normal. I’m super classy guys. If you’re worried these won’t come off with eye makeup remover then don’t fret- mine come off after a bit of a soak which I’m fine with. The fact that I have eyeliner to remove after a long day is some kind of miracle so I am fine with that!
I really wanted to show off some of the uniquely pink colors so…I did this. A seriously funky eye look that might not be for every day but trust me when I say people loved it. Like so much. Now to use these as bases you definitely need to work quickly because they set pretty hardcore very quickly. Here I layered & blended a bit to get this heavily winged look. I also paired with my oh-so-loved Lancome Hypnose Drama mascara. I opened up a fresh tube after using something that just did nothing for me & did all kinda of smiling.
You can purchase the Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencils from Sephora directly here. If you’re shopping in stores be sure to take a peek at the shades before buying because some look quite different from the tube- like that lavender & the vibrant green. & please…tell me you’ll sneak a peek at Lamé while you’re there.
Tell me- which shades are you most excited to see from a high-end cosmetics company like Lancome? Which shades will you use the most & which look the most fun? Also…if you want to see any specific tutorials let me know!
