Hello Lovely Ladies,
So, I was strolling around in the mall this weekend and checked out the Faces Cosmetics Store and came across these amazing eye pencils. We all know how famous their “Long Wear Eye Pencils” are in Indian Market. These pencils are almost similar with just a few packaging changes and minor difference in the quality. Also, these pencils are available only at Faces Cosmetics counters.
Soft gentle pencils in a rainbow of shades. Use them to enhance your natural eye color for dramatic effect or give you that bright-eyed glow. Gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.
Retails at Rs. 249, similar to Long Wear Eye Pencils.
Similar to Long Wear Eye Pencils – pencil form with a cylindrical cap in black color for all the shades. The actual shade can be identified by looking at the bottom of the pencil which reflects the shade it is in.
My Experience with Faces Eye Pencil in Brown:
The shade is a regular dark brown color which has a hint of black tone to it. It is a matte finish color and not metallic or shimmery. The texture of this brown pencil is very smooth and creamy and it glides on the eyes without tugging the skin, but when I compare it to the texture of Long Wear Eye pencils, I feel that this pencil is up to the benchmark set by the previous ones. Texture wise, if Long Wear Pencils are 10/10, then this pencil is 9/10.
The pigmentation is kind of average too. Since, the color is earthy, it requires multiple swipes to build up the intensity. For me, even after swiping it many times, the color didn’t show up as I had expected.
Staying power is good, it lasted easily for 8-9 hours on me without fading. It requires makeup remover to get it completely off the eyes. It does not smudge at all and remains intact. This pencil too like long wear ones require frequent sharpening which is a drawback.
Pros of Faces Eye Pencil in Brown:
- Decent pigmentation.
- Does not tug on the eyes.
- Smooth texture, glides easily on the eyes.
- Staying power is 8-9 hours.
Cons of Faces Eye Pencil in Brown:
- Texture is not as amazing as Long Wear Eye pencils.
- Requires frequent sharpening.
