Front of the Line PRO Waterproof Eyeliner is a liquid eyeliner with a felt-tip marker–style applicator that makes drawing a line easy. The formula dries almost instantly and then doesn’t budge, making this a good choice for those whose eyeliner (be it pencil or powder) tends to fade during the day. Black is classic while Brown is actually a teak-like red. As the name states, this is waterproof—though it does fade slightly if worn when you’re immersed in water (as in going for a swim). This requires an oil- or silicone-based product for removal.

This Los Angeles–based independent cosmetics company launched in 1990 and is the brainchild of makeup artist Carol Shaw (Lorac is "Carol" spelled backwards). It is well-publicized that Shaw has a long list of celebrity clients, but then so do all of the other makeup artists who have their own products lines—there are a lot of famous faces that need attention—so that boast is hardly unique. Compared to competitors Bobbi Brown, Trish McEvoy, or Stila, Lorac doesn't offer the same caliber of foundation colors or the array of products, yet most of what's available is impressive. The company holds its own when it comes to blush, eyeshadow, and lipstick. You will find that, for the most part, the older, established products perform better and are more attractive than many of Shaw's latest inventions. In particular, the latest lipstick, lip gloss, concealer, and waterproof mascara are true disappointments. Lorac hasn't done a great job on the innovation and performance side of the business since the last edition of this book, while her competition (particularly Stila and Laura Mercier) continues to consistently impress. There are still plenty of reasons to shop this line, but focus on the long-standing products rather than on what's new.

    • This is quite possible my favorite eyeliner I've ever owned. I got this in a set for $39. Including blush, mascara, eyeliner, baked shadow trio, and liquid lipstick all for that price. But singly I don't think $23 for a liner is a very good deal. I love lorac in general. But you need a good primer I suggest tarte creaseless primer if you apply the shadows wet. The lorac primer for eyes didn't work because I have oily lids.
