{Buxom} Hold the Line Waterproof Eyeliner

Hello Lovelies!

When I got back home from my mini vacation (photos here), a package from Buxom was waiting at my doorstep. I love getting surprise packages, especially when they’re filled with beauty goodies! 🙂

I ripped open the package and found a couple of bronzers, a luminizer, and Buxom’s new collection of “Hold The Line Waterproof Eyeliner.” I immediately fell in love with the eyeliner colors and couldn’t wait to try them out. I’ll post swatches of the bronzers and the luminizer on Instagram, but this post is dedicated to the Hold The Line Waterproof Eyeliners.

Here’s a look at all 8 eyeliner colors. Buxom Eyeliners 1

“A high-performance, waterproof pencil that glides on like a gel and lasts up to 14 hours. Define dramatic, sexy eyes with highly pigmented color that lasts all day and all night. This high-performance waterproof pencil glides on like a gel without tugging or breaking and gives you time to blend before holding in place. No smudging. No transferring. This is the eyeliner you’ll want to experience again and again. A sharpener is included with every pencil, so you’re always on point.” Free of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates.  Available at Sephora for $17.

The eyeliners are super creamy and the colors are gor~geous.

Mattes –  Here’s My Number (dark brown) and Call Me (black) both have great color payoff. No tugging. Glides on smooth and once they’re set, they’re there to stay.  Ring My Bell (green) glides on  easily, but is my least favorite among the mattes. It just doesn’t go well with my yellow skin and brown eyes. But I think that’s just my personal preference.

Glitters –  Come Over (bronze), I’ll Be Waiting (gunmetal), and Pick Me Up (blue) all have a beautiful glittery finish. These three are by far my favorites. Even though they’re glittery, they 1) glide on easily 2) are buildable 3) and have almost no glitter fallout. Also, the intensity and buildability of each shade makes them very wearable!

Metallics – Knock Twice (taupe) is a pretty color but on the lighter side. This is a great color to use on the lower lids. Doors Unlocked (purple) was a bit disappointing. My least favorite color within the collection. It didn’t have a full and even application like the other shades.

Overall: I really like these eyeliners! They glide on smooth, they’re super pigmented, and once they set… they don’t smudge! These liners are very creamy and have a ton of color payoff. I recommend you start with a light hand and build on the color.

You’ll definitely need a waterproof makeup remover to remove these. My favorites are I’ll Be Waiting (glittery gunmetal) and Pick Me Up (glittery blue). Both are super glittery and so much fun. The best part is that the glittery eyeliners add a bit of sparkle without going over the top. A subtle and fun way to add a twinkle to your eye. 😉 If you’re interested, click here to see availability.

Have a great week everyone! xoxo

    I’m looking for a dark grey and will have a closer look at I’ll Be Waiting. Maybe this one will stay on all day on me. 🙂

    About how well / long does the blackest of these last when applied to the waterline?

    ooh! These color swatches are gorgeous! I have a Buxom lip gloss and it is a great product, so I am inclined to try these. They look similar to the Urban Decay 24/7 glide on eye pencil, which is great, too. Thank you for sharing. 🙂

      I love the urban decay liners too. Very similar for sure. Right now, I’m obsessed with these though… That is until UD releases new colors! Haha. Thanks for visiting and your comment! 😉
