Review : L.A. Colors Smudge Proof Liquid Eyeliner

Hello guys!

So I was looking for a really black liquid eyeliner some months ago for a K-Pop inspired makeup look I wanted to do on myself. The makeup look didn't went well. I guess K-Pop makeup doesn't suit my face... or I'm just not satisfied with how it turned out... But anyway, it goes the same with this particular eyeliner. This turned out to be a disappointed.

L.A. Colors Smudge Proof Liquid Eyeliner
This is somewhere around Php 200.00.

Below are the labels on the eyeliner's packaging:

And additional info from their website:


Water resistant Liquid Eyeliner is specially formulated for long lasting wear. Ultra fine brush applicator ensures precision lining.

The applicator is indeed very fine. Though I like that it can create very thin lines, its bristles became like this:

This annoyed me too much that I never used it again.

The only good thing about this is that it is very black. Check the swatch below:

It takes a while to dry when applied so you need to wait for 10 seconds before opening your eyes.

Is it long-lasting? Yes, if you do not have oily lids like me. It smudges on me when my lids get extremely oily. Is it water-resistant? I believe so. It takes a while to get smudged when I expose it to water but with a few wiping, there are some parts that get smudged off. Remember, it's water-resistant, not waterproof.

What I LIKE:

- Very black
- Water-resistant
- Affordable
- Locally available
- Brush is fine and easy to manipulate


- Not long lasting especially on my oily lids
- Applicator's bristles go all over the place
- Packaging looks tacky

Even though this eyeliner has good qualities, the bad ones are too major for me to reconsider using this product again. I find this a big disappointed and I don't think I'll ever think of buying this again. :( 

So what do you think of this product? Do you like other products from this brand?



  1. Natawa naman ako sa brush! Panalo na sana sa pagkablack eh :P

  2. Sinabi mo pa! Haha! I was like WTF after I opened it again. :P

  3. Have you tried their gel liner? Super ok din, and the brush is ok. Pero you can always use yours. super opaque sya but I got the dark brown color. I like it.

  4. Rae - will definitely check that out next time I visit them! Thanks for the recommendation! <3
