Today I’m reviewing one of my favorite green eye pencils – Faces Canada long wear eye pencil in the shade Forest Green .
Price : Rs 249
Quantity : 1.15 g
What Faces Canada says about the product :
There seem to be a lot of colors listed on the website which I’ve not seen in stores and strangely Forest green seems to be missing :\ Also, the image shown on the website does not correspond to how the liner actually looks, same with the quantity!
Anyway, this is what they claim –
Soft gentle pencils in a rainbow of shades. Use them to enhance your natural eye color for dramatic effect or give you that bright-eyed glow. Gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.
My take on the product :
I was recommend this eye pencil by Natasha..correction- HIGHLY recommended this product by Natasha and since I was on a lookout for a green pencil that time I picked up this pencil right away!
It comes in a mechanical sharpen-able pencil packaging with a colored end and cap which makes it easy to identify the shades.
The texture of this product is really creamy and soft and it sets to a waterproof, smudge proof finish within seconds of application. Quite easy to apply, no tugging or pulling, can draw lines as thin as one wants by sharpening the pencil to a fine tip. I generally do not recommend using waterproof liners on waterline but if you have tried and it works for you then you can go ahead and use these on waterline too!
The liner is well pigmented. Single swipe gives good color but just out of habit I go over it 2-3 time to make it intense. The color stays the same till taken off with a makeup remover. Despite their long wear finish, they come off easily with a makeup remover (I use Cetaphil cleansing lotion). Priced very well for the quantity and quality, these are a must-have for everyone!
These come in lots of attractive colors– in both matte and frost finish. The Navy Blue shade is already a big hit and is currently out-of-stock in most places!
The shade Forest Green –
True to its name, its a forest green shade with a frost finish. The color definitely draws a bit of attention and gives a glow to the face. The frost finish is not too much so it can be used for everyday wear too. It particularly looks great when worn with yellow outfits and paired with a bright pink lipstick!
