L’Oréal’s Brown HIP Color Truth cream shadow

Near-matte brown, great for more naturalistic definition (softer than black, but more color depth and definition than medium browns or greys.) I'm glad I picked this one up - I know that other lines make matte or near-matte brown liners, but I don't have any. (I think the closest I come might be MAC's Bitz and Glitz, which does have the sparkle factor.) The color applies smoothly, richly, and evenly. I just wish that it had a better long-term performance record..!

These eyeliners were phased out for some reason. It may have had to do with repeated complaints about performance - this eyeliner takes longer than most to fully cure and set, and it doesn't stay in place over a full 12+-hour day. It fades just a bit, and tries to migrate slightly. It doesn't look terrifying on me, but I don't like it when eyeliner smudges or fades away over the course of my day.
