Today, I’ll be reviewing one of my most favorite liner which is Catrice Smokey Eye Pencil in shade The Black Earl! I love soft, smudged eye looks a lot and this was the main reason to get this liner pencil.
Smokey, smooth, seductive, the Smokey Eyes Pencil with an integrated brush applicator and a soft, easy-to-blend texture creates endless creative opportunities for effective smokey eyes make-up styles. As if you‘ve just stepped out of a fashion magazine! Available in three trendy colors. – The Black Earl – smokey black liner with silver shimmer, Gloria Greynor – silverish greyish color and lastly Its A Pleasure, Treasure – bluish grey in color.
My Take on Catrice Smokey Eye Pencil in The Black Earl:
The shade I got is “The Black Earl” and its a gorgeous deep black color with visible silver shimmer! I totally adore this shade! The pigmentation is lovely and you need only one swipe to get that deep color! The shimmer is very fine and not visible much on the eyes, so it can be worn during day time as well. The pencil is extremely soft and creamy and glides like a dream on the lash line. I have even used this on my lower lash line and works well. It has never irritated my eyes though I would not recommend it for waterline due to obvious shimmer.
On smudging, it gives a glorious greyish color which looks lovely! Once set, the liner stays on me for the entire day until I remove it with a makeup remover. So, the staying power is pretty awesome! Though the color may fade a little after 6 to 7 hours, but it is still very visible.
The pencil comes with its own smudger which makes it easy to get that smokey soft look in minutes! I love this smudger! Initially, I did not expect much from it, but I was pleasantly surprised as the smudger is of top quality! Its not like those cheap rubber-type smudgers, but its flexible enough to move around the corners of eyes and at the same time firm enough to smudge the liner without tugging at the lids. I use this smudger a lot and it works with all kinds of liners 🙂 Don’t need a separate smudger brush now!
This is how it looks on me
