Sleek Makeup Eau La La Liner Review & Swatches

You’ll probably agree that Sleek Makeup Eau La La Liner is possibly one of the most exciting releases in the eye pencil world this Summer.

Available in 20 eye popping shades this is a collection you won’t want to miss if you adore obscure and unique shades of eyeliner like red, bright orange, and yellow (just to name a few).

Scared of yellow and red eyeliner? No worries there’s plenty of basic shades for the tamer eyeliner user as well!

Let’s take a look!

One of the things that disappoints me of about Eau La La Liner is the three shades I tried failed to work on my waterline. I can’t technically say if they are or are not waterline safe so don’t go trying to apply them on the area if you’re sensitive. I will say I attempted it and sadly, no go. The pencil just isn’t creamy enough to work on the area.

Speaking of creamy…

These aren’t a creamy eyeliner, they do have a drier texture but this isn’t a bad thing. It simply means they last a hell of a lot longer than other eyeliners. They have an easy glide across the lash line without tugging or skipping. I find they provide full color payoff on first swipe so I don’t have to go back over my line. The colors are exciting needless to say but knowing you’ll actually get that color on your eyes is even more exciting as they have really great color pay off for this price.

Canary Yellow, Noir, Tonic

The finish seems semi-matte and almost pearl-like so I wanna say that they remind me of MAC Pearlglides but I also realize that Pearlglide has a super cult following so I don’t want to mislead hardcore fans…I just felt they kinda sorta reminded me of the formula.

The waterproof formula for all eyes particularly oily ones is a yes. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised particularly if you have issues keeping your eyeliner in place without smudging. These have a hard, long wear time and won’t move, fade, migrate, smudge, or flake. They come off when you want them off, not before.

Overall, Sleek Makeup Eau La La Liner is a solid product for the price. These garner a Muse Approval even though I was a little crushed they failed on my waterline. You won’t be able to take advantage of them for application in this area sadly. Aside from that they pack everything into a great formula. You’ll be AMAZED how incredible to wear time is once they set, they don’t budge!

These are $5.99 each and available at www.sleekmakeup.com (the site ships worldwide)

    I’d say it’s probably not good doing the pearlglide comparison because these also seem to lack the shimmer that the pearlglides typically have.

    The do look fab on their own though!

      hey carrie tonic actually does but it doesn’t photograph well enough to capture it…there are three shades in the collection with a metallic like shimmer that kinda resemble pearlglide. but yeah, that’s what I said kinda sorta ;-D
