Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Midnight Black ~ Swatches, Photos, Review

I am for the most part a gel liner girl. I have never really cared for pencils as I like to get my line as thin as I can in order to take up as little lid space as possible on my hooded eyes. Lately though I have been feeling  rather lazy, and particularly when it comes to tightlining, using a pencil liner is a lot quicker. Hence the search began for the perfect waterproof, smudge proof, black pencil eye liner.  Someone on Twitter was kind enough to recommend the Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Midnight Black. Given my love for Marcelle I knew I had to give it a shot. 

Waterproof Eyeliner – Midnight BlackFor impeccably lined eyes anywhere, anytime!Perfectly blendable, its creamy formula allows for a precise and intensely coloured line. The smooth texture of this waterproof eyeliner virtually glides on the skin and stays put all day long, resisting to water, humidity and heat. Long-lasting, it is nonetheless easily removed with any Marcelle eye make-up remover. Available in a matte or pearlized finish.Hypo-allergenic and perfume free.Format: 0.04 OZ / 1.2 gSuggested retail price: $10.50

The shade is uber black but does require a bit of building up. The swatch below is a few passes. This doesn’t bother me though because the end result is exactly what I wanted. A rich black effect that lasts all day without budging. 
The swatch pic below was taken after VIGOROUSLY rubbing the swatch with my finger. 

I wore it in this look with the Marcelle Coffee Beans Quad and after over 12 hours there was only a moderate amount of fading on the lower waterline. The fading was very uniform and for it to last almost the entire day intact I was VERY impressed. I trust this liner enough to purchase an additional one for my kit and be confident it will not let my clients down.

    This eyeliner lasts completely intact and smudge-free after an evening in a mosh pit at a concert, actually. I was deeply impressed! My non-oily lids help, but that was no primer or anything, just the pencil. Fab stuff.
