Laura Paige Eye Shadow Pencil Sapphire 34

So I searched IMBB for any reviews on Laura Paige products (and also because I wanted to see if it is available anywhere nearby :-P) and nothing! Not even one review . 🙁
So I thought I’d introduce this brand to you guys.

Laura Page Eyeshadow pencil

About Laura Paige:
This company is in existence for over 25 years, and has been my go-to brand for when I need to pick something up quick, but don’t have time to go to a beauty supply store, for over 7 years now.
The company doesn’t test on animals (a great point in its favour), and, as they say, is a ‘Quality cosmetics range at true “value for money” prices’.
My experience with Laura Paige:
Naturally, I will want to buy something that is priced reasonable, or if priced high, at least is of superior quality. Also, it should actually deliver what it claims. Nothing is worse than buying something and getting something entirely different!
But Laura Paige is both, priced reasonable and works so well, you’d never believe that it isn’t a high-end brand. I’ve bought their pressed powders, brow gels and mascaras as well.
The Product:
Finally on to the product… this is an eye shadow pencil, and can very well be used as eyeliner, even on the waterline. Now if that isn’t great, I don’t know what is!

It stays on all day (slightly fades, yet that is probably because I rub my eyes :-P) and doesn’t crease, even without a primer. I just glide it on, and it stays put.
This is what it looks like on my eye (just one swipe, not smudged).

Ingredients:
Paraffinum liquidum, candelilla cera, mica, isopropyl lanolate, propylparaben, BHT, BHA (+/-CI77891/CI77491, cera alga, CI77510, CI77492, CI77499, CI75470, CI15850, duxus chinensis, talc)
Note: Paraffinum liquidum literally translates to ‘mineral oil’

Here is a swatch of the pencil on my finger.

Pros of Laura Paige Eye Shadow Pencil Sapphire 34:
• The pencil’s wood is of very good quality. Easy to sharpen
• Glides on (doesn’t tug at the eyelids)
• Intense color
• Can be smudged (must be done right away, or it’ll “set”)
• Can be used as an eyeliner as well
• Not tested on animals
• Inexpensive
• Works even on the waterline (though stays for only about 5 hours)
• Doesn’t feather, bleed or crease
• No need of primer (although this depends from person to person I guess)
• Washes out with soap / face wash completely (if you are short of makeup remover)
• The pencil lasts for months, even if used on a regular basis
• Doesn’t sting my eyes at all
• The candelilla wax ensures it doesn’t melt in the summer

Cons of Laura Paige Eye Shadow Pencil Sapphire 34:
• Although it costs only Rs.165, with the shipping and handling charges etc, it will come up to approx. Rs. 780. However, since it is comparable to pencils costing that much, in my opinion, it is worth ordering.
• Gets blunt quickly. Not a problem for me, though, because I like my pencils blunt 😀
• Hard to find in local stores in India.
• Contains parabens

    1. No, Aruna, the shades are different. Both are blue, but the Astral Blue looks (from the pictures in the link) much darker, whereas this one is brighter than that. Its true color is more like the swatch on my finger. 🙂

  1. I am loving it really, the shade is good, I wanted a shade like this but dont have it.its not that costly even half the price for other products !! superb ! :thumbsup:

  2. I think i saw this brand at some chemist shop when I was in London..didnt bother checking out the range then..will def check it next time i go there 🙂

    1. Yup 🙂 Available locally in London. Try them, definitely worth it! I love their eye shadow pencils the most out of all their products 🙂

I had curly hair like you, but I dont know but since two years my hair has straightened up automatically without any parlour treatment :tongue: You rock the colour, i just wish the shipping price was not that much ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    1. Yes, my hair has been super curly all my life! 😀 😀 Thank you for saying that! :shy: How did your hair just straighten just like that? 😯 Cool! :tongue:

      I agree, shipping is a lot. More than the product price itself. :(( I don’t like shipping charges! :-/

      1. It straightened up I think as I incorporated the use of conditioners on a regular basis and oiling too, thrice a week

        1. Oh 🙂 I do the same thing to keep my curls looking their best! 😀
          I am happy mine didn’t end up straightening out, though! :toothy grin:
