Review of Lancome Artliner- Smoke by LPomona
Yes, it's expensive, but I buy it again & again because it's better than *any* type of liner I've ever used - and I've used them all.
"Smoke" is a gorgeous, cool-toned, steel grey that is very deep - basically one-off from black - but doesn't look harsh against the skin. It's not matte or shiny, but rather a satin finish that wears like iron. I found the learning curve to be pretty short, and now I can do perfect cat eyes almost every time. It lasts all day long, but washes off with ease. The brush is such that you can create a very thin or thick line.
Net-net, you're paying for: a beautiful shade that is super-defining; all-day wear; ease of application. So you're getting a lot!
