I am a huge fan of two things, compact powders, lip balms and eye pencils. Oh! Well! That’s three. I was never good at Math. What I am good at is collecting them and putting them up for display when an occasional cousin or a friend decides to drop by unannounced. This is my way of torturing them. I make them arrange and rearrange my collection, smiling angelically while laughing maniacally inside at the misery I put them through 😛 I am evil that way. So, when I came across this eye pencil, I decided to get it not only to increase my existing numerical value of my collection but also because I love using white on my eyes. It just opens up my tiny, really tiny eyes. Here’s the review.

My Experience with Coloressence Premium Shades – White Eye Pencil:
The pencil is not at all sturdy. I received mine in a broken condition, which I tried to glue together using Fevi Quick. It’s patched up for the moment, but I have no idea how long it will remain fixed. The pencil is tiny with a plastic cap. The texture of the pencil leans towards the drier, matte side. It is not at all creamy but glides on like butter on skin; however, when I tried applying it on my waterline, the effect was not at all neat. The line was botched and streaky. I think this can be attributed to the dry texture of the pencil as well as my outrageously oily lids and eye area. I did manage to make it look decent by applying a layer of white shadow followed by mascara, but for me, this defeats the very purpose of an eyeliner pencil. Eye liner pencil, to me, is something that I can apply a swipe of and run, but this pencil needs a lot of work in application. Also, the colour is extremely light. It won’t show either on the lids or on the waterline unless multiple swipes are made. I mean not two or three but somewhere around eight to nine swipes if you want the milky white to show.
The pencil smudges easily but even then this pencil cannot be used as shadow because its texture makes it impossible to work with. Also, the staying power is horrible. It literally starts disappearing within one hour of application.
That is, in the case of my extremely oily lids, but I am guessing even on lids not as oily as mine, the staying power won’t be much. Also, it is not water resistant, but then, expecting such an inexpensive product to be water resistant would not be fair but even in other respects, this eye pencil failed miserably. I did not like it at all.
Pros of Coloressence Premium Shades – White Eye Pencil:
- Easily available.
Cons of Coloressence Premium Shades – White Eye Pencil:
- Multiple swipes are required for the colour to show.
- If used on the waterline, mascara becomes absolutely necessary, else the waterline would look untidy.

- Not water resistant.
- Not sturdy.
