I have never used an eye liner from Lancome. Not because I’ve heard anything bad about them, but simply because I have my faves and just haven’t been drawn in to the brand by way of liner. That all changed with the launch of their Spring 2012 Collection and the appearance of Green Petal.
What the Nordstrom Website has to say about Lancôme ‘Le Stylo Waterproof – Spring 2012’ Long Lasting EyeLiner:
Formulated for an intense eye look to withstand everything from tears to inclement weather, this waterproof eyeliner has a unique twist tip that never needs sharpening. Won’t skip, smudge or streak. The easy-glide, creamy texture helps you create any look you like.
Use 502 Green Petal for a frosty mint green accent, or 600 Blanc, a pure white, to brighten eyes. Limited edition.
- Shades featured in the Lingerie Collection include Blanc & Petal Green.
Green Petal is a frosty mint liner, meant to highlight the inner corner and accent the eye. This would also be an excellent base for your shadows. This liner does apply smoothly and is very soft.
There isn’t a lot of pigment, so as a liner on it’s own, it probably wouldn’t be good unless you lined with it and then put a shadow over top. Be careful of how hard you’re pressing (I learned the hard way and broke mine) and don’t twist it up TOO high because it won’t go back down (not mine, anyway).
Lancôme ‘Le Stylo Waterproof – Spring 2012’ Long Lasting EyeLiner retails for $25.50. Green Petal 502 is Limited Edition to the Lingerie Collection. You can find this at your local Lancome cosmetics counter. I’m not sure if every counter has this just yet, so call to check on availability.
