Are you looking for some pigmented, versatile and creamy pencils that don’t break the bank? Then look no further than Sleek Eau La La Pencils. Available in 20 bright and neutral shades, these pencils can be used on the eyes, brows and lips. And they look very sleek too. They are black with a color-coordinated end so you can easily find the shade you’re looking for in your stash. I have received three shades: Tonic, Bullion and Nutcracker:

Tonic, my favourite shade out of the three, is a beautiful and shimmery forest green with a metallic finish. Bullion, the only other shade in the range with a metallic finish, is a bright yellowish gold. Nutcracker is the most versatile of the three. It is a warm chestnut brown shade that can be used on the eyes, brows and lips. It is also a nice alternative to a black eyeliner for daytime looks.

All three shades are very pigmented, providing an intense and opaque line in just one swipe, and glide on smoothly without pulling nor tugging. The texture is quite creamy too. The formula reminds me of Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencils only the texture of the Eau La La Pencils is a tad firmer, which is a good thing because it means that it will last longer. And once set, these pencils just won’t budge.

My lids are slightly oily and so, if I don’t use a primer, most eyeliners smudge on me after a few hours. Not these. I tried them without a base and they stayed put from morning till night. They won’t smudge, move nor fade. They only come off when you decide to remove them. And for that, you need an oil-based makeup remover. These pencils are really waterproof!

They lasted about 6 hours on my waterline too, which is very impressive! Not even UD pencil liners last that long on me. Only on the lips, it lasts a bit less. Due to eating and drinking, it lasts about 4 hours there, but that’s still amazing staying power, especially considering that most lip products only last half that time on my pout. Overall, I’m in love with these pencils and I can’t honestly think of anything I don’t like about them.

Available at:

Sleek Makeup Eau La La Pencils in Bullion, Nutcracker & Tonic have great color payoff that glides easily and smoothly on the lids without tugging. They are really waterproof and once set, they don’t budge for the entire day or until you decide to take them off with an oil-based makeup remover. Staying power is impressive on the lips and waterline too. And they are so cheap!

      Janessa, lol, that’s a bit premature, isn’t it? But nutcracker has a Christmassy feel to it and that’s such a lovely time of the year. I can’t wait for it to arrive every year hehe. :)

    Oh yes, I love these – went and got loads of them last week, and they are truly amazing. Don’t seem to affect my allergic eyes either.
