|Zuzu Liner in Iguana|
- Several color options from classic to fun
- Available in shimmer and matte shades
- Soft, creamy formula
- Retail availability
- Gentle ingredients
- Matte shades may fade without primer
These pencils come in similar but slightly different color selections. Gabriel tends to be a bit more classic, while Zuzu offers more trendy and youthful shades. Like all Gabriel products, these lines are vegan and gluten-free, which is always a plus for me. They rate about a low 2 on the EWG Skin Deep database, which is quite gentle. When I used the black matte shade from Gabriel, I found it lasted about 4-6 hours without primer. The Zuzu iguana, on the other hand, lasted all day with two layers. I suspect this has something to do with the shimmery aspect, but I think a primer would help the matte shades last longer. Gabriel tends to have good retail availability, which makes the moderate $12-14 price point more reasonable. If you're looking for quality pencils that perform similar to conventional products but have safer ingredients, Gabriel and Zuzu offer a nice selection.
