Lotus Herbals Says:
- Create those smoldering eyes in just one stroke with PURESTAY Eye Definer pencil.
- This Smudge-proof & water resistant definer stays all day long without creasing.
- 100% vegetarian
- Made with natural ingredients
The Lotus Herbals Purestay Eye definers come in sharp enable plastic bodied pencil form. The pencil body is coloured with the respective shade making the identification easy. Actually I liked the packaging of this Purestay Range from Lotus (for the products I have tried). Again Ingredients list is missing which is not acceptable especially for eye range products.
The texture of the product is very soft & buttery, feels like melting onto the skin! There’s a slight slick in the texture but glides well in control & smoothly. The buttery texture ensures huge product wastage here during sharpening which needs to be done after every single or two uses. The product does not compromise in any segment & delivers bang on what it claims. It is highly pigmented & gives true packaging colour on lids with a single swipe. One can layer for more vibrancy which I feel won’t be required as the range is quiet vivid. I was expecting Opal to be slightly darkened but it turned out very bright & expressive on eyes. I was planning to get Royal Orchid too, guess now I won’t. If you prefer bright & vibrant shades for eyes, should definitely check this range. The formula settle down as water proof & smudge proof post application but it takes time to switch to the later phase. It’s a slow transformation process in this case & you get ample time to play around with the shade. But once set rest assured that it won’t budge, crease or fade till removed with a good makeup remover. Opal don’t sting me on waterline , still I don’t prefer to wear it because of those minute shimmers & also I have watery eyes due to which shimmers gets into eyes unknowingly. Though I have no complaints here, feel that these are priced slightly high if compared to Faces long wear or Colorbar I-Glide range with better shade variations & pricing and also performs equally well /better. Overall I would recommend these eye definers provided you prefer bright shades & won’t mind taking out few extra bucks for any particular shade of your liking otherwise the shade selection is not very unique.
Opal is a bright Peacock Blue shade with very minute shimmers giving a high shine metallic finish. Shimmers are barely felt & can be sensed only visually. The shade is way too vivid for my liking & I prefer to use it on a darkened base to tone down the intensity, making it more wearable. It’s waterline safe despite of those shimmers & weared for good 8+ hours on me without much shade alteration. Overall, I am not impressed with the shade collection much plus pricing could have been better.

It’s a pack of limited vivid shades selection with soft & buttery texture, full power pigmentation & full day wear without any fading or budging. The formula is water proof & smudge proof. Opal is a bright Peacock Blue & comes out with high metallic finish due to the microscopic shimmers.
(Negatives for missing Ingredients list & product wastage.)
