Yves Saint Laurent Effet Faux Cils Long-Wear Cream Eyeliner ($28) in the shade Cherry Black is beautiful! The color definitely reminds me of black cherries. It’s a very deep purple shade with very fine specks of reddish glitter.
The quality of this cream eyeliner is superb. It is so soft and creamy and easily glides onto my eyelids with my very skinny eyeliner brush. It’s super pigmented and does not need gone over more than one time. You get a nice smooth line of color with just one single swipe.
I do find this to be a true long-wear eyeliner. I often have trouble with my oily eyelids and many cream and pencil eyeliners. Not many eyeliners stay exactly where I put them for more than 4 hours. I can say that this is one that lasts me 8+ hours with zero smudging.
I love the unique color too. I’m not a fan of harsh black eyeliner with my light blue eyes and fair skin. I lean more towards using my brown and gray eyeliners more than my black ones. But this Cherry Black is dark enough to be noticeable with darker eyeshadows but light enough not to look too harsh.
What do you think of YSL Cherry Black cream eyeliner? Is this a color you would wear? It’s a bit on the pricey side but so worthy of a splurge.
