Although I am an avid liquid eyeliner user, pencil eyeliners aren’t that bad if they’re the right kind. They must glide well, be buttery smooth, doesn’t budge or smudge (or at the bare minimum), and most importantly long lasting.
Burt’s Bees Nourishing Eyeliner unfortunately didn’t quite live up to its claim, especially if you’re like me and have oily eyelids and/or monolids/hooded eyes. At first application, the eyeliner seemed to be okay but then I realized it budges. I didn’t think it’ll be a big deal, so I cleaned off the edges and went on with my day.
Within an hour, I noticed the eyeliner had started to seep into the creases on my eyelid. By the end of the day, the eyeliner has pretty much sat into the creases on the eyelids. Oddly enough however, the eyeliner that survived (i.e., the non oily areas of my eye) stayed in place – so technically yes to long-lasting.
Overall, this wouldn’t be an eyeliner for me unless I prime my eyes really well and top it off by “baking” my lids with powder. That being said, I will definitely be using this eyeliner for whenever I’m going for a smokey eye look as it’s easy to smudge and blend. I think this eyeliner would be best for those who don’t have oily eyelids or at the very least, primes their eyes very well to keep the eyeliner from budging.
