I was at Faces counter looking for Magneteyes Kajal launched recently but it was out of stock, however SA at the counter got me convinced to buy this Solid black Eye Pencil which claims to be waterproof and smudge proof. He drew the line on his hand with it and then rubbed cream on it after few seconds, i was very impressed to see that the  line was intact, no smudging and no fading.

Packaging: The Eye Pencil comes in black color with a black colored plastic cap. There is no inbuilt sharpener.

Color: Dark black color.

Texture: Texture is smooth and creamy but does not crumble. It glides smoothly and provides a dark black color in one swipe.

Application: Application is ideal if you apply it with light hand, it gives the precise finish and color in single swipe. I have applied it on water line and on upper eye lids and did not found any issue with the application.

Pigmentation: Pigmentation is one area where it earned brownie points, it goes opaque in single swipe. Just the single stroke is required for full color coverage.

Longevity: I had wear time of 7-8  hours with slight fading on upper eye lid. I am very impressed with the staying power, the people with hooded eyes may experience smudging but i didn’t had any problem.

Removal: You need good oil based remover to remove all the traces of this Eye Pencil. It is difficult to remove.

Pros:

  1. Blackest of Black Color.
  2. Waterproof
  3. Smudge proof
  4. Glides smoothly due to creamy texture.
  5. Highly Pigmented.
  6. Long wear time.

Cons:

  1. No sharpener provided.
  2. Difficult to remove.

My Verdict: It is one of those eye pencils which looks equally beautiful both on water line and upper eye lid. The color is blackest of black, i loved wearing it as it stays intact for long hours. Totally recommend it 🙂

Rating: 4.5/5
