Deborah Milano Eyeliner Pencil in 03 Review

By Tuesday, March 31, 2015 , ,


I usually gravitate towards black liners I don’t know why but I do and for sometime I had been wanting to try something different but not to different and what felt comfortable and sort of next best thing to black was brown. So as I was browsing through makeup counters and came across Deborah Milano eyeliner pencil 03. Let see how it fared out.

Product Description:
A soft pencil that glides on and leaves a clear, sharp line. Fantastic staying power. Dermatologist tested.

Packaging: It is packaged as a colour coded wooden pencil which can be sharpened. 


Performance:

Deborah Milano 03 is a brown eyeliner pencil and the colour is a true brown with no shimmers or glitters in it.  It is made out of wood so you have to sharpen them and there is some product wastage due to that. When I swatched it on my hand at the store it was pigmented and smooth in texture and just glided. How I wish it was the same way on the lids as well. 
When used on eyelids it is not as pigmented as it swatches and even if you go over 2 -3 times it doesn't impart the desired pigmentation. The same goes for the texture it is not as smooth on eyes, it tugs and drags a little. Brand claims that it has fantastic staying power but I beg to differ, its staying power is poor. It stays for 1 or 2 hours if used as eyeliner and it doesn't show up on my waterline,  it get  transfers to the upper eyelid and it smudges very easily if you even touch your eyes it comes rights of. It was a bummer product for me.
See it swatches nicely.
I just swiped my finger once it came right off.
The Good:
  • Like the colour.
The Bad
  • Lacks the pigmentation.
  • Tugs on the eyelids
  • Transfers easily
  • Smudges
  • Poor staying power
I love the colour that was the reason I bought it in the first place but it just did not work for me. Maybe I got the bad one out of the bunch, I don’t know. If anyone of you has tried it let me know how it worked for you.

  17. I love the shade, but it sounds like you were a bit disappointed with some aspects of the liner. I am not familiar with this brand. I'm assuming it's not sold in the US

  18. @Allison: Bummer and it is an Italian brand so quite possible its not available in US

  19. Shade looks lovely but i can't handle the liner that smudges so much.

  20. The shade look lovely.. may be you can use this as a base colour for brown eye makeup... Think it will work great...

    ReplyDelete
  21. @All Girly Gossip: I thought of doing so but it tugged and dragged while using as an eyeliner. I did not dare to use it as a base.
