Fearless gazes start with these must have shades. Very soft and smooth gel pencil with a waterproof, tear proof gel formula doesn’t smudge for 12 hours – requires no brush or sharpener.

With the warm weather dissipating and the cold rushing in, it feels like fall. For me, that means it’s time to put away the pastels and brights and reach for something a little darker and more subtle. Lately, I’ve been rocking the Shu Uemura Gel Pencil Liners in Violet Purple* and Green* ($36 each at Holt Renfrew, select Sephora and Hudson’s Bay locations). These liners were launched as a part of the Shu Uemura Brave Beauty – Vision of Beauty Volume 01 collection, which explains the creative purple, green and silver packaging.

You know an eyeliner is long-lasting when…you apply eyeliner one day, you get lazy in the night, and unexpectedly, the next morning you wake up with near-perfect eyeliner. Story of my life. These gel pencils last 12 hours and then some. Plus, the easy twist up means no sharpening and no fuss when it comes to worrying about your eyeliner migrating to the tops of your cheeks. In addition, the liner is soft yet not overly smudgy, perfect for lining either the upper or lower lash line.

Overall, the Shu Uemura Gel Pencil Liners in Violet Purple and Green are the perfect way to spice up your eyeliner and add subtle bit of colour into your fall makeup routine.
