The Long-Wear Eyeliner $13.00 in “Forever Noir” is also a soft pencil with a shiny, laminated exterior shell. It isn’t quite as soft of the Kohl pencil, but it’s still easy to apply. It’s black, but more of a softer, cashmere black. It also contains good-for-your-lids ingredients such as jojoba oil and Vitamin E. I tested this one in hot, humid conditions, and it didn’t run or fade for hours.
The Ultra Rich Eye Pencil $15.00 in “Black,” is a short, stubby pencil in a medium black. It’s 6mm lead size is 2mm larger than most standard pencils, making it easy to smudge this portable, creamy liner/shadow into an instant smokey eye. Every woman should have one of these in her makeup bag to multi-task as needed!My favorite type of eyeliner pencil is a dual-tipped one. That’s why I love the Smooth Blend Eyeliner $15.00 in “Smog.” This soft, easy to apply pencil liner is intense, inky black, yet the smudger tip lets you change it’s attitude. Wear it deep and intense as-is, or blend and smudge it to soften the color and change the look all the way to “grey” (no wonder it’s called “Smog”)!
Another favorite of mine in this seemingly endless choice of Noir Cosmetics black eye liners is the Retractable Waterproof Eyeliner $14.00 in “Jet.” It combines the portability and ease of a slim pencil, with the blendability and long-wear of a gel or liquid. The soft, rich black is flattering on virtually everyone, and Vitamins C and E make the pencil creamy and easy to wear. The retractable pencil ensures that you always have a clean, sharp tip, too. This is another must-have in your makeup bag!
To keep the pencils sharp and for a clean line, there’s a nifty Pencil Sharpener $6.00 with three different sizes of holes to keep any size of pencil, sharp. It’s also got a snap-on cover and a blade cleaner.And, after you’ve applied one or more of these liners, you’ll want to finish the look with a great mascara. I really like the Noir Cosmetics Mascara $14.00 in “Black Out.” This excellent mascara goes on deep black and somewhat shiny, leaving lashes fully covered, thanks to a generously-sized mascara wand. The mascara is build-able, so you can go “nice” for daytime, and all the way to “wildly sexy” for drama in the evening.
At the end of the day, what goes on, must come off. Noir Cosmetics Eye Makeup Remover $11.00 4 fl. oz is the color of the Mediterranean Sea and comes in a clear, plastic, flip-top bottle. With all that black color, you need a product that will wipe it clean without too much of a struggle, and this makeup remover dissolves the “smoke” and leaves your skin fresh and clean again. This water-based makeup remover didn’t irritate my eyes. It’s suitable for all skin types, and it’s oil-free. What more could you ask from a bottle of makeup remover?!
