Shade description: - There are five vibrant shades available. Night glow, Mocha Loca, Goddess Green, Blue lagoon, Electric Purple.
I bought these pencils a long time back. As these are on offer this month I thought of reviewing them. I bought two shades mocha loca and blue lagoon. I love colored eye pencils. I find them much easier to apply than the liquid ones. The things I like the most about these pencils are the two in one concept. They have a very creamy texture. It’s very easy to apply as they glides very smoothly without tugging the skin. While applying on the water line I would say I have to glide two –three times for the color to show & glides very smoothly on the upper eyelids showing good colour pay off. You can also smudge the liner to get a smoky and funky look. The pigmentation is very good. Can be easily sharpened and as the pencils are thin a pointed tip can be obtained unlike the fat lakme ones.
Blue lagoon: - This shade has two colors one deep navy blue and the other a bit light peacock blue shade.
Mocha loca:- This contains shimmery brown at one end and the other side has golden shade. I just love these two shades.
The blue lagoon is ideal for regular or party wear. I love the vibrant peacock blue color. The deep navy blue one has a matte look. The brown shade from the mocha loca is not that prominent on the water line because of my skin color but the golden one looks great. The biggest drawback is the staying power and the smudging. They just disappear if you rub your eyes. But they stay for a long time if you don’t disturb your eyes. I won’t say they don’t smudge. They do and the under eye area looks smeared but they stay on the water line for a long time if not disturbed. All in all I love these pencils. It’s not ideal for a 9 to 5 wear. I love the vibrant colors and the pigmentation.
- Good pigmentation.
- Creamy texture.
- Easy to apply.
- Can be applied on water line as well as upper eye lid.
- Glides smoothly.
- Pointed tip can be obtained.
- Smudges after a while.
- Staying power is not that good.
- 2-3 glides needed for the color to show on the waterline.
I would recommend these pencils as the colors and the pigmentation is really great and its worth having it in your stack but these pencils are not the right choice if you are looking for regular 9-5 wear eye pencils. I would definitely buy them again but these would take a long time to finish.
