Hello all you pretty MABHians :)
I am back after short hiatus from reviewing, but I am all charged have some great reviews lined up only for you. I hope you are all enjoying the much awaited monsoons. This in fact is my favorite time of the year. I love the sound of rains and cool breeze in my balcony sipping chai with pakoras.. mmm drooling already ;)
Monsoons also call for the need of a great skin care regime and good quality makeup products. So today I’ll be reviewing one such great product; a nice black eye pencil/liner that’s a must for every woman’s vanity bag.
Price & Quantity:
Rs 1100 for 1.2 gm/0.04 US OZ
The pencil comes in a signature Black MAC case with sleek long MAC eye pencil with black bottom and gray cap.
The color is not the blackest of black but it does come off as nice black with creamy smooth and glide on eye formula with mild kohl kind of smell.
This is the best eye pencil I’ve used by far and I’m not saying this because its MAC but because its quality speaks for itself. It’s really waterproof, smudge proof, non transferring as it claims and no pulling or tugging required :) The formula does not sting/itches my eyes at all so much so that I once took a nap with the liner on and still my eyes did not sting or itch at all after waking up.
The consistency is very smooth and creamy and glides on eye lids and gives an ultimate matte finish to the eyes, it stays where it is even after 12+ hours even on the super oily lids like mine.. Yay!! (Happy dance)
Before and After Water Test:
Staying power is super awesome for both lids and waterline. It can be smudged for a smokey if freshly applied but after its sets after about a minute it stays and stays for good :)
I like all kinds of liners but I love the pencil ones the most. This one eye pencil did burn a hole in my pocket but because it does what it claims, I really don’t mind it!!
This has become my HG eye pencil, don’t think will ever get tired of using it.
On My Eyes:
- Waterproof, so super product for monsoons :)
- Smudge proof
- No pulling/tugging of lids required for application
- Only one swipe gives a rich black color
- Super awesome staying power 12+ hours
- Great for oily lids too
- Gives a very pretty matte finish
- No stinging/itching
- Smooth, rich creamy formula
- Long lasting, have used it many times, no need to sharpen as yet
- It is an expensive product but for amazing pay back, I don’t mind :)
Do I Recommend?:
Yes, absolutely if you are fan of good quality black eye pencil, this a worth a shot.
Would I Repurchase?:
Totally, I love this so much that I can keep buying the same shade again and again :P
