Pro Cream Eyeliner comes with a built-in brush, making it a viable option for application on-the-go. Although the included brush does work in a pinch, you're better off using a full-size brush for precise application (try Paula's Choice Precision Liner Brush).

In terms of performance, the gel-cream texture imparts a smooth line of color that doesn't flake or fade. You have to give it ample time to set, but after that you can count on stay-put color that is tenacious enough that you'll need a good makeup remover to get it off. Shades include hues of black, blue, plum, and brown.

Pros:
  • Creamy texture glides on effortlessly smooth.
  • Doesn't flake or smudge.
  • Built-in brush for application on-the-go.
  • Attractive shades.
Cons:
  • Needs ample time to set.
  • Tenacious formula requires makeup remover.

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.
