Today, I will be reviewing an eyeshadow pencil that can double up as a kajal too. I have 3-4 shades of these eye shadow pencils, but I’ll be reviewing this one today. Let’s get started!
Price: 249 INR
My Experience with Jordana Autumn Leaves Eyeshadow Pencil:
Packaging: This pencil comes in chubby wooden pencil form and is color coded. The cap is transparent and fits a tad bit loose hence this pencil cannot be thrown into a bag just like that.
Color: I like how this pencil has been named; “Autumn Leaves” is a gorgeous brown color with a touch of gold. It looks like a metallic shade, like foil eyeshadows. It looks great as a kajal too. I would rather use this as a kajal on an everyday basis, but this is a good option as a base eyeshadow too. It is highly pigmented and one stroke is enough for the colour to show up.
Texture: I really did not think that this pencil would have such a smooth and creamy texture. While that is a big plus for me, the flip side is that since it is so creamy, it tends to crease and smudge a lot. It doesn’t smudge that bad when used as a base or an eyeshadow itself. You just have to set it with a matching eyeshadow so it won’t move on your lids. It might be a good option for dry lids, but oily lids should just stay away or set it quickly.
Staying Power: As a kajal, it stays for slightly longer than when used as an eyeshadow. The staying power when used as a kajal is about 5-6 hours with smudging and as an eye shadow is 4 hours but with a lot of creasing.
