Brown Eyeliner Anyone ??

Wednesday, June 27, 2012


Hey Girls,

How's the heatwave treating you ? I heard its pouring cats and dogs along the coastal areas. Delhi, as usual is burning. I really hope it rains soon here.

Today's post is a just a photo post about my brown eyeliners. I am very much obsessed with brown eye pencils, kohls and eyeliners. 

Revlon Eyeliner Pencil in Toast, NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown, Faces eyeliner in Metal Brown and
Revlon Luxurious Color Smoky Crayon in Bronze Smoke

Swatches - Revlon Eyeliner Pencil in Toast, NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown, Faces eyeliner in Metal Brown and
Revlon Luxurious Color Smoky Crayon in Bronze Smoke

The Revlon Eyeliner Pencil in Toast is a medium brown colour. It stays on for a good amount of time, but I have to apply it a lot many times for it show up on my waterline as well as eyeliner. I won't purchase again.

The NYX Eye/Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown is still a better one and stays on my waterline for good 5-6 hours, does'nt smudge and gradually fades without giving racoon eyes. I would love to try other shades also. Repurchase - Definitely.

The Faces eyeliner In Metal Brown is probably the best in my kitty of brown eyepencils. It's a dark brown rather black brown or grey brown shade. It is quite soft and creamy and applies easily without any tugging and pulling, stays for 7-8 hours. I need a makeup remover to remove this. I am eyeing the other colours from Faces eyepencils, especially the turquoise blue shade. Repurchase - Definitely.

I have mixed feeling about the Revlon Luxurious Color Smoky Crayon in Bronze Smoke. It stings my waterline and the stinging does not go away even after few minutes of applying. The texture of this one also like Faces is quite creamy and stays for a long time. I don't know if I got the bad piece of this eye pencil but every time I open it (rotate from the bottom to make the tip come out) to apply, the whole mass of the pencil comes out. I almost ended up breaking it up twice, but it was saved only because it fell on my bed. And, ya, for the quality of pencil and performance, I am not going to purchase it again. You can read my detailed review here. Just that I won't repurchase the Revlon Crayon eyepencil because after using my faces eyepencil over months, I find it more affordable and value for money and equally good in quality. I would rather hoard more of faces eyepencils in all colours. 

A few lip balms and lip products I love. I just can't make myself throw away that cute avon lip balm tub. It's empty. Just kept it with these for cuteness factor. Let me know if you want me to review any of these.
