Just say no to drama!
New from Lancome are the Drama Liqui-Pencil Longwear Eyeliners, pairing “the high intensity color of a liquid liner and the ease of application of a pencil.”
The product is designed to provide 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.”
I think it’s fair to say that most of us want the MAXIMUM from all of our products – it’s 2015, people! *lol* I’m not sure it’s just the fast pace of modern Life, or that we are somewhat spoiled with uber-performance from mass market cosmetics just as much as high-end nowadays. Either way, we really do expect more…and companies have caught on, pushing the limits all the time.
I love anything long-wear myself because I’m just so active – I need things to stay put, feel lightweight, and come off easily at the end of a performance (or just any ol’ day!) What would work best for me of this group is Brûlée, as it would be most natural and subtle. I wanted to say the nude shade but what appears to be a skintone is actually Lame, based on the Sephora site (metallic white gold) – I bet this is gorgeous, though!!!
Colors are as follows:
- Noir Intense – deep black
- Brulee – chocolate brown
- Pluie – grey
- Minuit – matte midnight blue
- Parisian Night – pearlized midnight blue
- Cote D’Azur – blue klein
- Ampoule – pearlized purple
- Baroque – matte lavender
- Embrase – pearlized grey
- Paradis – pearlized tropical grey
- Pacifique – matte sea green
- Soleil – bright yellow
- Macaron – pink
- Lame – metallic white gold
- Lumiere – metallic silver
- French Lace – matte white
Lancome’s quality has never really faltered for me – while I don’t own a ton of their products, I know my mother (for one) swears by them. The reviews for this look pretty fabulous so if you need a smoothie pencil, and rich color, check them out! 🙂
Huh…so falsies AND a pushup!? She must be a hot little number!
The package says that the brush is designed to “scoop and lift” the lashes, which (I agree with nouveaucheap) it does appear to do. The formula is also “creamy and plumping” that creates and holds lash volume.
I feel like this is sort of a mass version of Benefit Roller Lash? I haven’t seen it in store as yet, but many of the Fall products are trickling in (Harmon often has things earlier than CVSs and Walgreens and the like – at least around here.) So, if you are a mascara fan, keep your eyes open for this one!
Spotted this new product on Target’s website – Maybelline Eye Studio Brow Drama Palette!
The trio comes in four different colorways, for $10.99:
- Soft Brown
- Deep Brown
It’s listed as “out of stock” currently, but I am sure it will be rolling around soon enough for them to post it (have to generate that demand, right! 😉 )
Each kit contends a pigment powder, a highlighting powder, and a setting wax, along with a dual-ended, angled applicator brush and a spooky for extra shaping.
