Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil Gray Review

Hi Everyone!!!

I am totally in love with Faces Long Wear eye pencils. I have these pencils in various colors. Most of the colors of these pencils have already been reviewed at IMBB and I just noticed today that Gray hasn’t been reviewed yet, so here I am with its review :)

Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil Gray Review

Price:

Rs. 249 for 1.15 gm.

Shelf Life:

2 years 6 months.

Gray Eyeliner

My Experience with Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil Gray:

Faces Long Wear eye pencils come in a sleek, black-colored packaging with the bottom and the cap of the same color as that of the color of the pencil, so in this case, its of gray color.  I ordered this pencil online because I didn’t have a single gray eyeliner. The color though named “Gray” is actually a carbon black color with tiny and very few silver glitter. It gives a soft, smoky look to the eyes. It looks like black only from a distance and even most of the times on eye, so I wouldn’t recommend it to you if you already have black eyeliner from this range. I think it has more black tones than gray undertones and being named gray, it should have had more gray undertones.

Grey Eyeliner

Like all my other Faces Long Wear eye pencils, this is very pigmented and soft. A single glide gives an intense color. This pencil is very soft and there’s no tugging or pulling of the eyelids required while applying it. It glides on super smoothly on the eyes.

The staying power is awesome. When I apply it on the upper eyelid, it stays on my eyelid the entire day without any smudging or fading, but when I apply it on the lower eyelid, it slightly smudges after 4-5 hours, but this happens only in extremely hot and humid weather.

Grey Eye Pencil

Pros of Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil Gray:

  • Gray color is a good alternative to the usual black because of the softness it has.
  • Highly pigmented.
  • Very soft and smooth.
  • No pulling of the eyelids required.
  • Awesome staying power.

Cons of Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil Gray:

  • I think the color should have more gray undertones.

IMBB Rating:

4/5 (-1 because it isn’t a proper gray color)

Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil Gray?

Yes, I absolutely recommend Faces Long Wear Eye pencils.  Though I am not sure about repurchasing the gray color because I wanted it to be more on the gray side than the black side, it doesn’t decrease my love for Faces eye pencils :P
