Faces Pencil Eyeliners - Review

What it claims: Soft gentle pencils in a rainbow of shades. Use them to enhance your natural eye color for dramatic effect or give you that bright-eyed glow. Gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.

Price: Rs. 250 for a pencil (Beauty & More at Khar give 15% off on MRP, I got these from Pantaloon’s sale at 20% off)

Shades available (These are what I have seen; I don’t know if there are more)

1. Solid Black – plain black
2. Sparkly Black – black with silver shimmer
3. Solid Brown – simple brown
4. Metallic Brown – coffee brown
5. Forest Green – jade jewel green
6. Deep Green – dull dark green
7. Grey – matt grey (for a change, this is actually grey like grey should be and not silver toned. Most brands sell silver toned eyeliners under grey)
8. Purple – matt purple
9. Turquoise – deep blue green shade
10. Electric Blue – a bright blue shade

Pros:

1. Very soft, - these are the most soft & creamy pencils I have tried till date. They are so soft it feel like I am using a cream.

Top: Turquoise Blue, Below: Metallic Brown

2. Long last, smudge proof – they stay & don’t budge. I have had these on for 18 hours straight during my cousin’s wedding & they just stay put

3. Priced very well

4. Didn’t irritate my eyes – even when applied to the lower lash & water line


5. It takes a few seconds to set – so if you are looking for a smudgy look – that is doable too. Just blend quickly after applying.

Cons:

1. It tends to melt & smudge a bit if you are in the sun for some time (like 1-2 hours).

2. Because it is so creamy, it does tend to get over a little fast.


Will I repurchase: Yes! I initially got Metallic Brown & Turquoise for trial – they impressed me so much that I have gone back & got Grey as well. I really love these liners, so much so, that they are all that I have been using ever since I got them & disregarding my earlier eyeliners.

PS: Those of you wondering how these compare to Colorbar – IMHO, these are far more superior – they are softer & creamier, and much easier to sharpen as well. Plus they have a wider range of colors.
