Finally, I gave up on black eyeliner and decided to move to a brown eyeliner. This was hard! Many of the brown eyeliners that I tried were much too red-toned. I tried out several brands before I found a shaded which I liked.
This is a review of the Dejavu Lasting Fine R Pencil eyeliner. Dejavu is a Japanese brand which is famous for its mascara, such as the Dejavu Fiberwig mascara. I reviewed a different line of mascara from Dejavu, the Volume Film Lash Knockout Mascara, in 2010 (*gulp*).
This is a pencil eyeliner which twists up. It is incredibly fine and smooth, allowing me to draw a very fine line along my eyelashes.
What it does: (from the Dejavu website)
Highly defined eyes all day long! A silicone fixative provides super holding power. We’ve successfully added even more adhesive constituents, meanings lines last even longer. It resists oil, sweat and tears – which can cause Panda Eyes – for a long-wearing rub-resistant finish.
Smooth, easy to draw! Silky smooth application with a soft, easy-draw pencil lead. A lead with just-right hardness: fills between eyelashes, makes inside lines top and bottom that stay thin – just as you drew them.
Price: 1200 JPY, around $12. Please note that consumption tax (a country-wide tax similar to sales tax) has just increased from 5% to 8% starting April 1.
Availability: In Japan, this product is widely available at drugstores.
- I love that this eyeliner lasts. This is the first time an eyeliner didn’t fade or rub away over the course of the day
- The black-brown color is just what I was looking for. This product also comes in 2 other colors.
- The pencil tip is really fine and smooth, which makes it very easy to use.
- I can’t really think of any! Wow!
