I’m a total eyeliner girl. I love playing around with different brands, and lately I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect pencil eyeliner. I already love powders – they can be dampened and brushed on for vibrant color – but finding a nice, not-too-pricey pencil liner that goes on smoothly and lasts all day is what I would like to find.
Enter Pencil Me In Cosmetics. Everything on their site intrigued me – their models have gorgeous eyes, their shade selection is awesome, and their pencils uniquely feature:
- All-natural ingredients, clinically tested
- Anti-oxidants and vitamins to keep the eye area soft and smooth
- A built-in sharpener in each pencil cap
- Smooth, creamy application that doesn’t pull on delicate eye skin
What I Like: They go on smoothly, and have a lovely creamy texture! The sharpener in the cap is so nice and convenient. The color lasts all day. And the shades are beautiful! The fact that they are all-natural is a huge plus for me, too.
What I don’t like: My only problem with the pencils is that the shades I chose don’t go on quite as dark as I would like, even with multiple layers. Also, it’s hard to create a fine, thin line with the creamy texture and size of the pencils.
Overall, I’m very pleased with these pencils – the cons I listed above would not stop me from ordering a few more pencils and collecting some darker shades that will show up more vibrantly, and the colors I chose are great if you want to layer coordinating shades.
My thoughts on the “Buff” Pencil: This is actually not an eyeliner shade meant to be put on by itself, but an accent pencil. According to the Pencil Me In Website, it has a “creamy pale green hue color which can counteract redness giving the illusion of a bigger brighter wider eye.” I’m a worn out mom who deals with trying to cover up tired, red eyes on a daily basis, so I was thrilled to give it a try. And I’m happy to be able to tell you that I was pleased with the result! It truly does help to cover up the red around your eyes, and prepares them for application of your regular eyeliner. This is a product I love!
