Review & Swatches: Revlon Luxurious Color Smoky Crayon

Revlon Luxurious Color Smoky Crayons in Steel Smoke & Bronze Smoke

This is a review for Revlon’s Luxurious Color Smoky Crayon eye liners/shadows in Steel Smoke & Bronze Smoke. They are available at your local drugstore, Target, and Walmart for around $10 each.

Company’s Description

Get a smoky eye effect with creamy rich color. Silky smooth formula glides on eyes for luxurious application.

Packaging: 9.5/10

These shadows/liners come in pencil form, have snap-on caps, and contain a pull-out sharpener at one end. The liner itself twists up out of the tube. Revlon’s hit all the right marks with this packaging, especially when it comes to the sharpeners.

Quality: 9.5/10

The colors are pigmented and have subtle shimmers. They smudge out easily right after you’ve applied them but have great staying power once they’ve set on the skin.

The built-in sharpener keeps the liners versatile, allowing you to maintain a point on the pencil but also use it to cover your whole lid if you want to use them as shadows. These will also apply onto the waterline, but won’t stay all day on the waterline.

Bronze Smoke is more of a brown than a bronze color and Steel Smoke comes off grey/silver once swatched.

My only small criticism is that the pencils could be a little creamier to make them glide on more easily.

Ease of Use: 9/10

You can use the point of the pencil to apply color as a liner or the edge of the pencil to apply all over your lid. Before applying, warm up the pencils in your hand to soften the product and make them glide on the skin more smoothly.

Price: 9.5/10

You get 1 g of product for around $10. At first, I thought $10 for a drugstore shadow/liner was pricey. But after some investigation, I figured out that it’s actually a fair amount to pay. For example, you can get NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils for $4.49, but you only get 0.5 g of product. So Revlon’s price point is actually very competitive since you pay twice as much and get twice as much. Plus, the NYX pencils aren’t smudge-resistant like Revlon’s, which also come with built-in sharpeners. Added to the fact that you can often get drugstore products with BOGO sales, and you’ve got yourself a good deal.

Toss if: you want super soft and creamy liners
Try if: you want long-wearing liners but don’t want to pay an Urban Decay price
Buy if: you want pigmented colors in a product you can use both as a liner and a shadow

    I absolutely LOVE this liner!!! I have it in Bronze Smoke and I use it almost every day!! As liner and shadow! and I’m thinking about picking up Steel Smoke as well.

    For those of you who are looking for reasonable dupes to UD 24/7 liner; Milani’s Liquif’Eye Liner is just as great, however, it comes in a limited range of colors.
