Today, I will be reviewing an eye/eyebrow pencil from NYX. Almost all the colors have already been reviewed here on IMBB. I also bought 3-4 colors including this one called Argent. Read on to know more about this shade.
It says Slim, trim but never prim, our Slim Eye Pencils come in entrancing shades. The creamy, long-wearing eye liner formula goes on easily and resists bleeding.
My Experience with NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Argent:
The pencil is made out of wood and needs to be sharpened. So, one needs to be very careful while sharpening or else the product will get wasted. The texture is pretty smooth, much smoother than those pencils that need manual sharpening and glides easily.
The shade “Argent” is a beautiful shimmery silver gray color. Unlike Colorbar I-glide pencil in Silver Hue, this shade is subtle and not over the top. These NYX pencils are usually much pigmented, but particularly for this shade, you may not get the desired color pay-off in one swipe itself. Somehow that is good as you are able to manage the intensity of the color as silver color is a bit difficult to carry.
The shimmer in this shade that you see is something a part of the color; it does not make you look like a shining ball. 😛 This pencil is definitely not an eyebrow pencil, who would like to color their eyebrows in silver *hihi* *hihi*. This is perfect to be applied on the upper lash line, I have not tried them on lower lash line. I usually apply it on inner corners of my eyes as a highlighter. It stays on for some 2-3 odd hours, considering that part being oily.
Pros of NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Argent:
- Nice shade.
- Not over the top.
- One can control the intensity.
- Creamy texture gives smooth and even application in just one stroke.
- Works great as an eye pencil as well as highlighter.
- Easy to carry around.
Cons of NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Argent:
- Product wastage due to sharpening.
- Staying power is not good.
- This shade cannot be used on eyebrows.
- MRP is quite high considering the quality.
Overall, I am pretty happy with this shade, plus I got these babies only for 75 bucks. So, for this quality, it is a big steal.
