Review & Swatches: L'Oreal HiP Color Chrome eyeliner in Violet Volt

On my eyes, I don't like to wear it ant thicker than that

As you can tell, it has a blue duochrome, which doesn't really show up on the eyes

- Goes on very smoothly
- Pigmented
- Long wearing
- Decent color selection

- Very soft

$8-10 for 0.03 oz / 1.1 g

I actually like this color very much, because it is not so purple that it's too bright but purple enough that it's not just black. I usually wear eyeliner without a primer these days, and I was pleasantly surprised that this wears slightly better than the Revlon ColorStay pencil eyeliner (review here).
Because the liner itself is very soft, be careful when you're sharpening it because you might nick a little bit when you take the pencil out of the sharpener. The way the wooden part of the pencil is cut reminds me of the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencils, but I think this is one of the first eyeliner pencils in the drugstore that kind of have that gel/cream liner texture to it, and I recommend people to check it out when it's on sale.

Yes, but preferably on sale.


  1. Thanks for the review.
    The color looks gorgeous!
    I was looking for a dark waterproof eyeliner that isn't black. This just might be it. :)

  2. @ L e n a I hope this works out for you! But if not, the Wet n Wild Creme eyeliner in Eggplant is AMAZING in terms of staying power
