Oriflame Beauty Eye Intensity Pencil Review, Photos, Swatches

by Urmi on February 1, 2011 · 79 comments

Kajal is one and probably the only beauty product that I can’t do without. I had my ‘eyes’ on ‘Oriflame Beauty Eye Intensity Pencil ’ for a long time and when I saw this product on saIe, I obviously decided to try them out!

Oriflame eye intensity

What the product claims: A creamy smooth sharpenable pencil for lining, defining, colouring and contouring eyes. With advanced silicone technology for exceptional glidability and blend. 7 hour smudge-proof once set. 1g

Price: Rs 239/- (MRP) I got them @ Rs 127/- (Membership Discount + Sale)
Shades Available: Intense Black, Chestnut Brown, Navy Blue, Precious Green, Charcoal Grey, Silver Prune

I had a tough time zeroing upon the shades but finally got myself the black, brown, green and the purple one!

Intense Black: It is one of the darkest eye pencil I’ve ever used. It is as dark as our traditional kajal. This one has surely replaced my routine Kajal.

Chestnut Brown: I love this shade! It is just perfect for everyday look. Very subtle and looks natural. Use this to avoid the harshness of a black liner.

Precious Green: I was a bit apprehensive about getting this shade and I wasn’t too sure if I’d be able to carry it off but I’m glad I got this one. It is a bit bluish green colour (greener than the picture) – very rich. Girls with brown eyes must be very careful while using green on eyes as some shades of green tend to bring out the yellowish overtones of brown eyes(some may even want that to make the eyes look ‘goldenish’). As this is bluish green, we don’t need to worry about that.

Sometimes I use it along with my brown/black liner to get a hint of colour.

Silver Prune: This shade is pure gorgeousness! I think purple looks great on brown eyes and every Indian girl must have a purple liner in her makeup bag.

What I like about Oriflame Beauty Eye Intensity Pencil’:

  • Shades Available: What makes these eye pencils so irresistible is the selection of shades. It is beautiful, perfect for everyday use.
  • Finish: The eye pencil is matte(satiny) with no glitter or shine. One thing I hate about the colorful eyeliners from other brands in the same price bracket is that they contain a lot of glitter (Lakme, Maybelline). By the end of an hour or two the glitter finds its way to my nose somehow!
  • The matte finish makes it look professional: perfect for office and college wear.
  • Texture: It is extremely smooth and creamy. It doesn’t tug at my eyelids.
  • Long Stay: It stays put for a decent amount of time(5+ hrs) but it does smudge a bit, especially in a humid weather condition.
  • Colour Payoff : It varies. While the black one is really really dark and intense black, the purple one is a bit lighter than expected. But overall the colour payoff is great :)
  • Packaging: The end of the pencils is coloured which makes it very easy to locate in a crowded makeup box.
  • The price: Without sale, I’d still get it at around Rs 191/-( 25% membership discount). Even at this price, it’d be a steal.

What I don’t like about Oriflame Beauty Eye Intensity Pencil’:

  • As these pencils are extremely creamy, sharpening them is a difficult task. One has to have a good sharpener.
  • It gets used up pretty fast.
  • They are a bit difficult to remove. I have to wash my face twice/thrice to remove it completely.

Will I buy them again? Oh yes, Most definitely!!

The colour payoff of the black one is great! You should give it a try.

Hi Urmi,

You might want to consider using an oil based remover for the eyeliner – that will remove it quickly :)

Urmi February 2, 2011 at 1:51 pm

Yes, cleansing milk works fine :) But sometimes it stings my eyes :(

At the risk of sounding stupid, how does one buy Oriflame products? I checked their website and there doesn’t seem to be a store/brand in my city. Also how is Oriflame when compared to Avon?

Me too…. but it works much better with a new sharpener !

Reply

Urmi February 2, 2011 at 2:01 pm

I brush my eyes with loose powder before I apply anything over my lid. This works fine in Hyd but in Kolkata (humidity!!) it did smudge a bit… these are worth a try… you might want to wait till there is a sale on these liners

The colour pay off of the purple one is less compared to the other colours. Try powdering your lid :)

Those pencils look beautiful on you.

I’m in the States. If anyone ever wants to do a swap/buy of Indian products for American products, let me know.

Thanks :)
I wish I could swap a few products but international shipping would be a prob to me :(

Hey Urmi,

thanks for the review…you have beautiful eyes and the way you applied eyeliner made the pencils look so amazing…..I am not a make up person, but your review has tempted me to buy the eyeliner, I bout the chest nut brown shade and its simply superb…I want to try the black and purple ones too…but the oriflame dealer charges a bomb for these as they are not on discount….
