I was looking for a brown eyeliner/pencil and happened to pick this from the Faces outlet in a mall here.
Price: INR 449 for .28 g
The pencil comes as a retractable one with a grey cap. The body of all the pencils are in the color of the shade themselves making them easier to identify amongst a cluster of pencils.
I feel the quality of the packaging is good for the price you pay.
The way I see it:
As mentioned earlier, I like the simple, neat packaging. Plus its a retractable eyeliner – both in and outward – which is really good too. I prefer retractable eyeliners since they need no sharpening and are easy to maintain!
Coming to the shade, its a nice chocolaty brown as the shade name goes. It is smooth to apply and creamy in texture.
Needs no tugging on the eye while application and glides smoothely. Though multiple swipes are required to get that desired line and chocolaty shade.
Below swatch shows – a single swipe and a double swipe of the shade.
This shade would suit fair skinned people much better. I am wheatish due to excessive tanning and this shade is hardly visible on my eyes with a single swipe. And comes out us a dull brown with multiple swipes.
Its smudge proof and really lasts for about 6 hours easily on me. Though its starts to fade away slightly after 4 hours.
Good product but bad shade selection from me in a nutshell…
The ‘Yes’ factors:
- Neat packaging
- Smooth to apply
- No tugging required
- Lasts long and doesn’t smudge
The ‘Nay’ factors:
- Not available online
- Found less shades to choose from at the outlet too
Overall product: 3.5/5
Repurchase? Yes! But some other shade… This brown sucks on me!
Recommend? Roger it! You will not regret…
