Hope you are doing great. Looks like love is in the air and wedding season is on. The whole media seems to be obsessed about Minisha Lamba’s and Shahid Kapoor’s wedding pics. After looking at Shahid’s wedding pics, I felt this chocolate boy has finally grown up to be a man. I loved Mira Rajput’s Pink lehanga. It was so feminine. I felt they make a good couple, isn’t it? I had been to Star MG One mall this week to check out Marks and Spencer’s stock and sale. I picked up a few dresses for work. While waiting for a friend, I simply gazed around the Estee Lauder store. The eye pencils caught my attention and I tried a few of them. I learnt that they were very much wearable on the waterline and the rest is history. So here goes my views/ reviews on the same.

My views on Estee Lauder 06 Sapphire Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil:
I have different colored eye pencils which I use as eyeliners. I have always tried the black kohl for my eyes. The beautiful color and the product being water line safe were the USPs of the product which made me pick it instantly despite its cost. The product is a pencil styled eye pencil with its outer case reflecting the exact color of the eye pencil color which makes it easier to pick from a stack. The pencil is covered with a beautiful golden colored cap which fits it perfectly and gives it a nice royal and rich look. The other side of the pencil has a soft smudger for creating Smokey eye look.
The texture of the pencil is very creamy and soft. One needs to be careful not to press it too hard as the tip might break easily. However, the cap needs to put on immediately after the product is used as the pencil tip might become hard when exposed to air. Once applied, the product needs to be smudged immediately as otherwise it becomes difficult once the product is set.
The eye pencil is easy to apply on the water line as well as on the eyelids in case its being used as an eyeliner. The color reflects beautifully. It looks great for brown eyes. I have oily eyelids and I noticed that the product stays put on for about 5-6 hours easily after which it fades off. However, at the end of the day I noticed that the product was still there on the waterline. It did not bleed. I was able to remove it with my regular makeup remover. The pencil though expensive, is a good try for those looking for colored kohls. I felt it is indeed a long-wearing eye pencil for defining eyes. Also when used only on the waterline, it gives a nice precise lining.
Pros of Estee Lauder 06 Sapphire Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil:
• Beautiful blackish blue color
• Creamy, soft and easy to apply
• Water resistant
• Beautiful packaging
• Smudger to create a soft smokey look
• Safe on waterline.
Cons of Estee Lauder 06 Sapphire Double Wear Stay-in-Place Eye Pencil:
• Availability could be an issue

• Sharpening causes product wastage
IMBB Rating: 4/5
