NEW Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Eye Pencils

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you might recall me raving about the Bobbi Brown Eyeliner Duos way back at the beginning of December. They were the softest, most pigmented, long-wearing eyeshadows out there and were supposed to be a pencil alternative to Bobbi's famous Gel Eyeliners. Typically enough, they were limited edition with the Christmas collection, and sold out in a flash.
The limited edition shades from Dec 2011
The people at Bobbi Brown must have realised just how much of a loss this was to my makeup bag however, and have brought out the same formulation of eye pencils into the permanent line this month (along with some new shades of their cream eye shadow, and their Long-Wear Mascara).

They no longer come as dual-ended pencils, but are available in 6 shades: Jet, Black Navy, Black Plum, Mahogany, Smoke & Hunter (l-r above).

Although they don't have the stunning metallic shades we saw in the Christmas Collection, I love the new colour selection, especially Black Navy, Black Plum and Hunter. All of the colours are very subtle so would be a great way of accentuating your eye colour without wearing too 'wild' a colour.



The formulation is identical to the limited edition versions, it's super creamy, very highly pigmented and once dry will not budge. It even stays put in the water line for a good few hours. There has been a lot of hype around this type of gel/pencil liner, but I can honestly say this is my favourite. It knocks the socks off my Urban Decay 24/7's and MUFE Aqua Eyes.
From top: Black Plum, Black Navy, Hunter, Smoke, Mahogany, Jet
These are £17.50 and available on counter now. If you want to see swatches of the new shades all together, there are some great ones here.

**On a side note, if you do purchase one of these, make sure you replace the cap firmly everytime! If you leave it off, because they are a gel formula, they will dry out!**

  4. These look fantastic, really want to try the black-Plum one and if they are so budge proof might have to trade in my Urban decay 24/7 black liner for one of these instead. x

  6. sounds ace, never heard of gel pencil liner before! I currently use Maybelline gel liner but it smudges like crazy, I'd like to think this is nothing to do with my small chinese eyelids, but who am I kidding?! 17.50 sounds worth it for such a nice concept! xx

  10. They sound great. I'm lusting after Hunter and Mahogany. I have hooded eyelids also Vivthediv and are hoping they don't smudge.

  11. They are slightly on the expensive side, but I guess when eyeliner is such a staple product of my everyday makeup I'd definitely get every pennies worth out of it. Thanks for the review, I think I'll pick one up after my UD runs out :)
