YSL: Dessin Du Regard Waterproof - Long Wear Eye Pencil in 'Black ink' - £19
Browsing around aimlessly around make-up counters hoping to find an eyeliner to replace my finished Urban decay 24/7 liner, i stumbled across this gem! I was just picking up random eye-liner pencils from different brands and swatching it on the back of my hand. Although many were very good quality, they were not as creamy as i would like so i tried a lot, yet put back a lot on the shelves. I am extremely picky with my eyeliners where they have to be creamy, yet waterproof! I finally reached the YSL counter and picked up this one to try out. I was so amazed by how pigmented and creamy it was, and it also consists of a waterproof formula which was great and ticked all the boxes for me. The make-up artist there was kind enough to try it on me there, and i was immediately sold. I must admit the price is quite high, but the liner stayed put all throughout my day until i removed it at night!

When i went home to open up my product, just as i nearly threw away the packaging, i realised that there was something else inside. It was a sharpener which i thought was so cute and also very useful. The eyeliner itself feels very luxurious and sleek to touch along with a nice rose gold cap. I am impressed by the simplistic yet classy design. One of the reason that i was finding an alternative to the Urban decay 24/7 liner, was that i was aware that the brand does not produce products that are paraben free which i am a bit iffy about. I am glad that i have found a similar product that works 10 times better in my opinion. Since buying this, my gel-liners have been shoved back into my make-up drawer because this eyeliner is so much more convenient to just draw on in the morning and go without using a brush etc etc. 
I have been using this for well over a week now, and i have been in the rain with it, been in bed with it on and been stressed over exams with it, and i can proudly say, that the product did not budge at all and stayed put on my eyes without making me look like an awful panda like some eyeliners do. I have extremely oily eyelids, so this is quite impressive in my opinion. The price is really worth the great quality product and i believe that this will make it into my holy grail products in due course and i will definitely want to re-purchase it once it is all used up.

One downside to this product is that, due to the nature of it being so soft and creamy, the product gets used up very rapidly and it doesn't stay sharp for very long. A lot of sharpening to maintain the point is required which can be a little bit annoying, but i guess its tolerable and can be forgiven since the product is good. Also, it is inevitable that the price is also another downside because priced at £19 for an eyeliner sounds just too ridiculous. I look forward to trying out other amazing products from YSL.

What do you think about YSL products? and what is your favourite product from this brand?


  1. I think YSL products are great but the prices of course make me cringe a little bit lol.. I love the YSL Rouge Volupte lipsticks though.. :)

  2. I am still looking for a good pencil eyeliner and this YSL one sounds so good. Too bad I can't get it where I live.



  3. I just started reading your blog today and absolutely love it! I currently use the Urban Decay 24/7 liners but have been having trouble sharpening them >:/ Thanks for the post, it was very honest and informative :)

  4. Sounds like an excellent, budge-proof eyeliner. I know what you mean about it being used up quickly and tricky to sharpen as I have the same issue with these other very creamy eyeliners that I use by a local brand.

  5. I love YSL lip glosses. They are just gorgeous!

  6. I am looking for a good pencil eyeliner,YSL products are excellent! xx

  7. Looks fantastic! I've never tried YSL eyeliners before but I definitely rate their other products so this might be worth a go once my Korres eyeliner is done for.

  8. Have you tried it on your waterline? if so how is it? - ive been looking for a decent eyeliner for ages! xxx
