Faces Eye Pencil Review

Hey Friends,

I am a fanatic of eye makeup and i just cant get enough! Its so difficult to not buy a new eyeshadow shade or liner!

I recently bought 2 new eye pencils from Faces in dark brown and dark green. I have not used this brand before so thought of doing a quick review on it.

Faces Eye Pencil in Dark Brown & Green

Faces Eye Pencil in Dark Brown & Green

Pros:

  • Very dark shades of brown and green. I like to use them outside my lower lash line to create more depth and intense look
  • Affordable price – around 150 INR

Cons:

  • Its not absolutely long wearing i would say….smudges a bit as the day progresses. It will fade a bit but will definitely showup on the face.
  • Its in a pencil form. I am not a very big fan of pencils, i prefer the retractable ones.
  • Its not very smooth to glide on specially if you want to use it as eyeliner on top.

I liked it but not loved it. It does the job of highlighting very well along with black liner. But if you use it all by itself, it might fall short of your expectations in terms of longevity…it will fade. That’s the only issue i can highlight. But then again, the price and colors are a thumbs up. If you want a cheap substitute to high end products and something that you might want to use once in a while….this will work.

Hope you find this review helpful. Let me know if you do try this product or any other shades.

Xoxo,

The Perfect Navy Blue – Colorbar Oriental Blue Eye Pencil Review!

Hey Gals,

Blue is my color and I had been in search of a nice navy blue eye pencil which, is not glitterly, long wearing and water proof.

Its been a tough quest i must say….i have searched all major brands for the perfect navy blue and would come across shades of blue but not a good navy blue. Most of the so called navy blues were with a dark green undertone. But, my efforts of finding the perfect navy blue have finally paid off! 🙂

It is the Colorbar Oriental Blue 06 eye pencil. I just looooovvvveee this one. Its a gorgeous Navy Blue and looks absolutely stunning!

Pros:

  • Glides on like butter – very smooth formula
  • Gorgeous color – not glittery/sparkly but has its own shine
  • Very long wearing – stays all day!
  • Doesnt smudge – you will have to make an effort to remove it

Cons:

  • Price – I think its a little steep on price – around 400 INR. I would think twice paying that kind of money for an eye pencil.
  • Its a pencil and not a retractable one. I am not a big fan of pencils coz you have to sharpen them. I prefer the retractable ones.

The pros definitely outnumber the cons. I am willing to let go of the cons coz its the perfect navy blue i was looking for! It gives soo much depth to the eyes…looks gorgeous!

My suggestion – if you want a navy blue eye pencil, this is most certainly the correct navy blue shade and its worth the money. So, definitely give it a try and share your experiences.

Xoxo,
