Too Faced Lava Gloss Eyeliner: The Super Black Part-Liquid Part-Pencil Eyeliner That Makes Lining Easy

OK folks, you know I don’t often say “OMG you need to try this” whenever I post a review, but OMG YOU NEED TO TRY THIS!

Last weekend I had like a four hour break in between New York Fashion Week shows so naturally I decided to window shop. Somehow I wound up in the massive beauty level at Macy’s and then to the Impulse Beauty section where brands like Urban Decay, Benefit, Too Faced, and Peter Thomas Roth live. Though I already own both pencil and liquid liners I love (Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil, Urban Decay Liquid Liner, Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes, Make Up for Ever Aqua Liner, Sephora Flashy Liner), who says there isn’t room for another? Plus after seeing the words “Lava Gloss” on the box, I had to give it a go.

Too Faced Lava Gloss is definitely as SUPER BLACK as it claims it is. It gives you the intensity of a liquid liner but all the ease of a pencil. I know when I use liquid liner I always skip my bottom waterline because my eyes can be very watery there then the liner gets all inky and what not and doesn’t stay. I loved that I was able to line my bottom waterline with Lava Gloss the same way I would with any other pencil but got that really black sleek line you get with liquid.

Lava Gloss doesn’t claim to be waterproof—just long lasting. It definitely delivers on the long lasting front. I was able to apply my liner and have it stay put for at least 8 hours (sorry, I would have see if it lasted longer, but had to go to bed by then…lol) even on my waterline.

I wanted to post about it on Monday because I was so hyped about it, but figured I’d wait until I used it enough so I could sharpen it and see how it turns out then. Because I don’t know about you, but I hate when I get a good pencil but then it goes kaput after you sharpen it. Lava Gloss easily sharpens (I used one of the sharpeners you buy at MAC) and works the same way after.

Seriously, this liner is THEE TRUTH! It’s especially good for anyone who likes the look of liquid but needs the ease of a pencil. I didn’t get precision cat eyes with it like I would with liquid liner, but hey—it still is GRRRREAT. *Toni the Tiger voice*. You can even smudge it a little for a glossy smoky look.

Have you tried Too Faced Lava Gloss? Would you try it?

    Hey girl

    would you say better and darker than UD’s Zero?

    This eyeliner sucks. I used it for a month and it was nothing but a smudgy greasy mess, migrated all over the lid and gave raccoon eyes. THE worst too faced product out there.

      Do your eyes tend to tear, g? I had the exact opposite opposite experience and I’ve worn this liner everyday since I bought it (and until I started having fangirl moments with a navy blue Urban Decay liner…lol) for probably a month as well.
