For modern-day Cleopatras—or those looking for a non-waterproof option—Noir’s Kohl Eyeliner provides rich, pigmented color.

Noir Cosmetics

Birchbox Breakdown

If there’s anything we love, it’s getting the best of both worlds. Noir’s stay-put black eyeliner combines the ease of a pencil with the drama of a liquid liner. It glides on like a velvety crayon and doesn’t shift, fade, or run. Plus, the waterproof formula means that your perfectly defined eyes will last through a tearjerker movie, flash rainstorm, or your best friend’s wedding.

How it Works

Thanks to vitamin E and jojoba oil, the crayon has an uncommonly smooth texture that makes it easy to draw a rich line without pulling the sensitive skin around your eyes.

How to Use

Draw a thin line along your upper lash line. Extend it slightly at the edges or wing upward to create a dramatic cat eye look. For an ‘80s-inspired rimmed eye, trace a skinny line on the upper and lower lids, then lightly smudge to soften the effect.

Easy to use eyeliner
Purchased

Goes on smooth and stays put - worth paying a little extra to get the higher quality when compared to cheaper drug store brands

debris everywhere
Purchased

This came unsharpened. I don't know if it broke off and stuck in the lid or if it just comes that way, but after I sharpened the pencil it skipped over my skin leaving "debris" in its wake. It doesn't glide on smoothly at all. =(

Just realized I never reviewed this...

and I still use it months after getting it in my box. I love the texture and it has great staying power! I like to smudge it a bit with a short, smudge brush.

This is my new favorite eyeliner! I bought it for a friends wedding to make sure that I had a good quality eyeliner. It works so well. I wont use anything else

description is accurate

it really is "long-wear" eyeliner. i can see a distinct difference when i use this eyeliner as opposed to my everyday maybelline. it's much darker and more pronounce and lasts a really long time.
the only criticism i have is that it smears under my eyes a little bit.

Not for me

I liked how it looked when I first applied it. But it didn't have any staying power. I found that I had to reapply it numerous times throughout the day.

amazing

it literally does not smudge. It's great for making dramatic looks but really easy to make a clean, every day look too

I was not happy with this eyeline what so ever. I put it on in the morning aroun 7am and by 930 it is gone. I will not be purchasing this again.

Love It!
Purchased

I haven't used crayon eyeliner in a very long time--I've been using drug store brand liquid liner. There was nothing wrong with it, I just wanted a change and a less dramatic effect to go along with a new eye shadow palette. I debuted the Noir eyeliner on New Years' Eve and fell in love. I used it on top along my lash line and then on the bottom tear line and feel glammed up without looking like I wear too much make-up. I recommend!

ok, but ....
Purchased

I liked the effects of the liner, it worked well and didn't smudge. However as soon the point was gone I was unable to sharpen it. It is not a typical pencil. So I was stuck and unable to use the rest of the eyeliner. Wish I had known this before, disappointing.
