The After-Hours Chronicles of Lancôme's Artliners

Okay, I know I did mention in my earlier Lancôme post that when I obsess over some brands and recently used items I could talk about them all the time, non-stop, forever.

But I assure you that initially the plan to ramble on about Lancôme (for now) had stopped in the earlier post and I was all ready to start painting a new picture and ramble on about other stuff but as it turns out, I forgot to give some mention to the long-wearing ability of these Artliners, which rightfully is one of their selling points.

Thus, here I am checking in sheepishly to plop on some less-than-flattering close ups of my eye but hey, it’s all in a days work.

If you haven’t already checked it out, head over to see how these Artliners wear when they are all fresh and beautiful in my Lancôme Artliner Look Book feature.

Now, if you are ready, here is how a couple of them look after hours, which frankly isn’t bad. It’s just my mildly greasy skin and creased (lower lashline) liner that I am a little ashamed of.

Pretty good for 10 hours of wear, if I say so myself.

When everything else looks a little worn, fatigued and faded, these are still going strong with their pigmentation, sparkles and pristine shape! Check out the tips of my flick looking as sharp as they did when I first drew them on in the morning.

These definitely do live up to their claim of being long-wearing though I have a teeny tiny bit of a complaint, which I forgot to mention in earlier entries too.

Slight Con…

These ‘peel’ or ‘flake’ off because of their vinyl / film like quality that actually enables them to stick and hug the skin well. Though this also means that the best way to remove these would be to rub in one direction. This way, it prevents the little bits and pieces that ‘peel’ off from getting into your eyes. I am having a rather sensitive eye moment right now so little flecks that accidentally fall into my eye can irritate my eye a lot so I have noticed this and taken extra care during removal.

It isn’t totally a con because this is just how the formula is and most of the time our eye cleans itself out anyway but if your eyes are easily prone to irritation, you might want to take note of this.

So, with that said, I think I’ll put a lid on Lancôme on here for a bit. I still have a lot of Lancôme loving to give but I’ll shift the spotlight a little for now, alright?
