I am back with my last ones from LA Colors; a lipliner Copper-Bronze and Eyeliner Mahogany. I have had enough lip liners by now so I don’t intend to pick anymore and so is with eyeliner pencils because I just use them on water line. I prefer a felt marker for upper eye lash line. Let’s see how these random picks turned out to be.

My take on L.A. Colors Pencils- Eyeliner Mahogany and Lipliner Copper-Bronze:
Both the eyeliner and lipliner pencils have identical packaging. Sleek black pencils with the bottom end displaying the shade of the product for easy approach in pencil holder. The cap closes tightly so no issues with the packaging safety and the possibility to carry in bags and clutches. The only negative aspect in packaging is that it looks pretty outdated; for even drugstore brands are coming up with innovations and cater-for aesthetic purposes in the products. The brand should consider redesigning the pencils. These are wooden pencils and the best thing is not much product wastage during sharpening and you get a crisp pointed tip of the lead.
Starting with the eyeliner Mahogany, the shade is a deep plum mixed with brown. The texture is neither too creamy nor hard. It glides easily on my upper lash in one swipe but for color to show up on water line, I require multiple swipes. The tip doesn’t break too easily and that is good because I get irritated when tips break in between the application. It doesn’t irritate eyes in either case of upper lash line or waterline. It doesn’t smudges on upper lash line and wearing time is around four hours. For water line application, it budges after two hours and displaces and disappears from water line. But atleast it doesn’t smudge like Essence eyeliners do! They make me a real zombie! I am not satisfied with the shade to be used as an eyeliner pencil; instead I might convert it into my lipliner.
Now for the lipliner Copper-bronze, I absolutely love it. The shade is sating copper brown shade with really creamy soft texture. Glides on like butter without tug or pull, stays put in place and gives no troubles to me during sharpening or application. If I take it as a complete lip color, looks adorable and lasts for four hours without a meal. It doesn’t survive a meal because I prefer topping it with transparent lip balm or lip gloss. This way, it takes care of the dryness you feel with lip liners. For outlining of lips, it increases the longevity of lipstick remarkably. The swatch is without lip balm/lip gloss to show the actual finish of the lipliner. Overall, great for the price, these are fragrance free and water resistant. You will need harsh rubbing with moist wipe or make-up remover to get rid of them.
