Fenty Beauty Baecae Vivid Liquid Eyeliner Trio

Baecae

Fenty Beauty Baecae Vivid Liquid Eyeliner Trio ($35.00 for 0.39 oz.) is mostly a miss–Banana Blaze had the most pigmentation in the set, but all three applied unevenly with more or less patchiness.  They were harder to apply as they were runny and took longer to dry down, so they often spread into my fine lines as I was waiting for them to set.  The only upside was that they did stay in place without fading or flaking once they dry down.

Fenty Beauty Hottie Alert Vivid Liquid Eyeliner

Fenty Beauty Hottie Alert Vivid Liquid Eyeliner

Hottie Alert

Hottie Alert is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which didn’t build up well due to it being quite thin and watery. The first layer of product was uneven and patchy, and the second layer just looked worse as it started to appear cracked. It was prone to spreading into any fine lines and texture on my skin as it took a bit longer to dry down. Once it set, the eyeliner didn’t fade or migrate during the 10 hours it lasted for.

Formula Overview

The formula is supposed to have “super-smooth precision and glide” with a “hyper-vivid pop of color” in “one stroke.” The pigmentation ranged from shade to shade, but most shades were semi-opaque to opaque in one stroke with deeper, less pastel-neon shades having better coverage. The formula was very fluid (almost too fluid, as some shades seeped into fine lines as it was drying down) paired with a very thin brush-type applicator that had some flex but didn’t seem floppy.

Some of the lighter, more pastel-neon shades appeared streaky or “cracked” as they dried down. They can take a bit longer to dry down, which might have been why some of them settled and spread into my fine lines. Once they set, they didn’t budge or move around. They do not claim to be waterproof, and they are not waterproof, but some of the deeper shades–like the blues, greens, and plum stain.

I tried using the included applicator as well as separate, eyeliner brushes (brush-type and angled) to see if applicator improved, but it was about the same; using the included applicator often ensured better pigmentation but just as easily could over-apply product. I also tried some shades as eyeshadow bases/cream eyeshadows (particularly when they didn’t seem to work that well as a one-stroke eyeliner), but they often proved problematic with sheerer, uneven applicator or were just hard to diffuse along the edges. They didn’t take eyeshadow layered on top of that particularly well either, so I don’t find they were particularly usable as bases either.

Fenty Beauty Wet Tshirt Vivid Liquid Eyeliner

Fenty Beauty Wet Tshirt Vivid Liquid Eyeliner

Wet Tshirt

Wet Tshirt is a bright white with neutral undertones and a matte finish. It had medium pigmentation, which wasn’t buildable due to the patchy, uneven lay down of product. The texture was very spreadable, as it was thin and runny, but it was harder to control and harder yet to keep from spreading into fine lines for me as the dry down took longer. On me, the eyeliner stayed in place for 10 hours without fading or flaking.

Fenty Beauty Banana Blaze Vivid Liquid Eyeliner

Fenty Beauty Banana Blaze Vivid Liquid Eyeliner

Banana Blaze

Banana Blaze is a bright yellow with subtle, warm undertones and a flat, matte finish. It had opaque pigmentation, but it applied unevenly and was inconsistent in just how poorly it applied–sometimes it was decent! and other times it was dismal with a very crackled appearance. While the brand recommends shaking before use (which is what I did each time), there was no indicating anything was mixing, so I’m not sure if that was part of the problem. The texture was very fluid and more prone to migrating into fine lines if I wasn’t careful to look up while it was drying down. Once it set, it didn’t fade or move around for the 10 hours I wore it for.
