One Eye Liner to Rule Them All

Let it be known, in the past I haven't really enjoyed using pencil eye liners. I can't deal with smudging, or formulas that pull on my eyelid. Ain't nobody got time for that. However in recent times I have tried a couple of lovely formulas that have gotten me back on the pencil liner bandwagon, the first of all being Australis's 10 Hour Wear Pencils.

Even though these are in a pencil format, these have such a smooth buttery texture more reminiscent of a cream product. The product in the pencil is very soft, so soft in fact I would warn you to take care whilst sharpening the pencils. When you apply these on your eyes they apply smooth and opaque with a single line, and once applied they set within the minute. Once these babies set, I tell you, they are not going anywhere for atleast ten hours. The longevity of this product stands up completely to the 10 hour wear claim. Have I convinced you yet? Okay! Let's check out the colours.



Aqua Attack, Grape Cake and Bombastic Bronze

Despite the slightly hilarious names, these colours are swiped only a single time to achieve the opacity you see in the picture above. Aqua Attack is a matte sky blue, Grape Cake is a metallic purple with a black base, and Bombastic Bronze is a metallic bronze. I find Bombastic Bronze the most wearable colour but the blackened base of Grape Cake gives it a dimension that I really enjoy. I can only imagine that Aqua Attack would look stunning on someone who didn't already have blue eyes like myself.

I wanted to post about these today because Priceline is currently having a sale for buy one get one free on eye and lip products. I would highly recommend you try these eye liners, they are one of the best products from Australis, and I sincerely hope they release more colours in the future.

  1. I've been looking for a good purple eyeliner, but I haven't been able to find Grape Cake! I would love to get bombastic bronze too, so hopefully I can find them both at a priceline before the sale ends.

  7. These look amazing! I love the bronze color... I'm really enjoying the bronze Maybelline color tattoo at the moment so this looks so enticing! Also, I appreciate the title of this post!

  9. You know I love them dearly Mishelle ;D I find the formula very similar to the prestige total intensity eyeliners. For my everyday look I like to make a gradient effect using both bombastic bronze (Australis) and bold brown (Presitge) :)

  18. These look awesome! I'm going to check them out in Priceline tomorrow. Is the bronze one similar to the maybelinne colour tattoo in bad to the bronze at all?

  19. Well, don't these just look gorgeous? I'm especially in love with Grape Cake. I hope you know that if I end up buying this, I'm going to blame YOU. Haha.

    PS, if you're looking for a great black pencil liner that stays put, I highly recommend Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof. It's very affordable and I've recommended it to a few friends, who love it too. :) Doesn't budge and it's a proper black!
