Faces Cosmetics Long Wear Eye Pencil Review, Swatch, EOTD

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 249

I got this Faces CosmeticsΒ  Eye Pencil in the shade navy blue. The pencil is in navy blue colour and has very very fine silver specks.

What I like about Faces Cosmetics Long Wear Eye Pencil

  • It holds true to its claim of long wear . For about 6 hours the pencil stays as it is on my lids (without setting with an eye shadow) and after that it tends to fade . Even then the eye pencil does not face completely until you remove it with an oil based remover.
  • The eye pencil is very soft. It glides on lids easily and does not tug or pull your lids at all.
  • I like the shade navy blue. It’s a beautiful easy to wear shade for both day and night time.
  • I don’t wear this eye pencil on my water line but overall, it has not caused any irritation to my eyes.
  • You can softly smudge the pencil within a few seconds of applying , which I like.
  • The eye pencil is quite pigmented and the colour shows on your lids easily.
  • It does not smudge or smear once it sets.
  • It gets removed easily with an oil based cleanser or olive oil.
  • The pencil sharpens just fine without breaking.
  • faces cosmetics long wear eye pencilThe end and the cover of the pencil are in the same colour as the eye pencil shade. It makes the pencil easier to locate.

Navy Blue Eye Pencil

What I don’t like about the Faces Cosmetics Long Wear Eye Pencil ?

  • I wish it didn’t start to fade even after 6 hours..

Swatch:

Here is how the navy blue eye pencil look on my eyes. this is just one swipe of colour. You can intensify it by applying more.

Overall, I am totally loving this eye pencil. This is for the first time I am using anything from faces Cosmetics and I am thoroughly impressed. I really don’t mind the fading part because the pencil is so light and easy to use that I can do touch up any moment. For people with oily lids, I suggest that you prep and prime your eyes to make your eye liners stay long. you can also set your eye liner with a co-ordinating eye shadow colour.

I am definitely going back for more shades.

Reply

Rati February 28, 2011 at 6:53 pm

Pookhie, you know most eye pencils fail for girls who have oily lids. πŸ™ Put a little primer . foundation/ concealer set it with a little powder and then apply the eyeliner. You cna also take grey eyeshadow and go over the eyeliner. It might work for you. :-*
