I love brown for my eyes and so I did not leave the opportunity to pick up this beauty from the brand “Savvy by DB” in the shade “Brilliant Brown.” There were six shades available in this range and all were equally good. Considering my love for browns, I overlooked the other shades and brought this home with me.
Rs. 450/- (approximately) for 1.2 gm.
My Experience with Savvy by DB Soft Glide Eyeliner in Brilliant Brown:
Packaging: The pencil has to be sharpened and considering the texture, you might need to sharpen after doing both eyes, i.e each time you use it fresh. The pencil is color coded and the transparent cap fits well, but does not shut with a click. But it has never come off, so that makes it travel friendly.
Texture: The name says it all. It is super smooth and glides like butter on the lids. This goes on so smooth that you do not even feel how intensely it deposits the color in just one swipe. But it is not crumbly-type smooth which might pose as a con if you are not too gentle with the liner. After lining both the eyes, I was left with almost a flat tip which says how creamy it is.
Shade: The shade is a gorgeous metallic brown which complements brown/green eyes very well. One swipe gives true color to the lids. It can be used both as a liner and kohl, but due to metallic finish, I use it only as a liner and sometimes to smudge the kohl on the lower lash line.
Staying Power: Once set, the liner does not move at all. If you wish to wear a smudged look, you have to be super fast in that. It just refuses to move after a few seconds. One more good thing is that the shimmer does not travel all over the face during the day. It can be the best friend for a long day out.
One con that I have to point out is that it is so soft that you have to constantly sharpen it for precise clean line; the pencil would finish up soon thus.

Cons of Savvy by DB Soft Glide Eyeliner in Brilliant Brown:
