These days I’m not buying much of the powder eye-shadows ever since I came across these beauties. Yes, The Maybelline Eyestudio pencils. They are just soo versatile. I use them not only to line my eyes ,I also use them as cream shadows. More-over, since they don’t smudge easily, I find them crease-proof as eye-shadows as well. Anyway, Bulbul has already done a review of these liner. So, I need not go over this again. I have a few more colors. In case you want to buy, you can take a look at my swatches.
I have got only 5. I have the green in common with bulbul. My colors are, from left to right-white. green, golden, sky-blue and dark royal blue.
Of these except for the sky-blue I love all the colors. A closer look at the nibs. Sorry guys, my camera sensor was acting funny so couldn’t focus that well. Besides my pencils, especially the blue one looks messy because I had used it as n eye-shadow. However the swatches are clean. A closer look at the nibs.
I use the white one on my water line. I find it strange that so many of you experienced stinging sensation. However, I had no such experience with these and I Do use them on my water line. I had also received two of the white liners as a free gift which I gave to my sister and the friend on whom I had done my tutorial.. Neither of them complained. I understand products react different on different individuals as this might be a case.
I love the green. There is no adjective which can sum up my liking. The gold one is also great. Not too intense, orange or yellow. Just the right proportion for me., but I hate the sky-blue. It’s not pale enough to look white on my water-line yet, too pale on my eye-lids and end up looking ashy or some kind of colorless liner. Next is the blue which is quite a nice color. As a browned eyed woman, blue ought to flatter me and I think it does. But I’m still fond of greens.
No more talking. Here is the swatch. Please take a look and let me know which colors you like best.
