When a brand announces they’ll be reformulating a favorite product of mine, I generally panic. Not where Estee Lauder is concerned, however! When I heard Estee planned to update their line of Double Wear Stay In Place Eye Pencils, I was so excited! They rank high on my list of the Best Estee Lauder Products, and I knew the brand would only make them better.
The color? Rich and intense. The staying power is what makes these a must-own. After applying these pencils I smudge them with a smudge brush, and give the color time to set. Once in place, these pencils deliver incredible, smudge-proof, long lasting wear. Yes, they are literally “stay in place” eye pencils!
So what has changed with the New Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Eye Pencil? The color is even more intense than the Double Wear Eye Pencils of yesteryear. To me the color looks more glossy than the finish of the previous pencils. Comparing the new Onyx vs. the old Onyx, the look now has a more “wet” appearance vs. the smokier Onyx the old formula delivered. The smudge-tip is now an angled foam that’s more dense than the sponge tip used previously.
Retail price is $23 per pencil. If you’re looking for more product recommendations, be sure to visit my Best Estee Lauder Products guide.
