These eye liners have been in the market since a very long time, but I never got one, even when they are completely affordable. May be I wasn’t convinced of their quality. Well this time, I thought, its high time, I should give it a try. I got this eye liner a little back and tried to play around with different looks to see its performance. Well I think now I am ready to share my views on it!
Many of you might already be using it and know how it is, but some of you might be like me, so this post can help them decide if they want to get it or not. 😀
About the Looks!
It comes in a pencil form which needs to be sharpened. The pencil is black in color with the bottom part in gold, indicating the shade of the eye liner. The cap is transparent and you could see the tip of the eye liner. The pencil has the brand and the product name printed on it.

My views about this eye liner!
I do like the gold color. Its great for highlighting the inner corners or using it in combination with black or brown eye liners. It give the eyes a subtle shine and makes them look very pretty. On its own, its barely visible. The gold color is not very pigmented. In other words, its not absolutely opaque, so its better to use it as a part of an eye look. But I would like to mention that I don’t have any issues with its pigmentation. My sole reason to get this particular shade was for highlighting purposes. Inner corners and under the eyes. Well, I ended up using it in way more ways than I thought I would.
The texture is very creamy and buttery. The liner smoothly glides on without any tugging or any troubles I should say. Its so soft that you might want to be a little careful in handling. The liner is highly susceptible to break during the sharpening process. Warning!! 😀
Lasting power is okay, not very good and not very bad either. The color itself is so soft that the texture makes it more likely to fade away after a few hours. If you don’t touch your eye often like I do, then its going to last much longer than it does for me. It lasts for around 3-4 hours, but if I am careful, it surely does perform better than that.
It doesn’t have any funny smell and one or two swipes are enough to get the desired look. Its not smudge proof, but it doesn’t smears very badly either.
I really like this eye liner and I should and must try the other colors from the range. I am particularly in love with this one, just because I can use it so many different looks in different ways! Its a versatile shade with great texture!! Certainly recommend to everyone!
