It's Sunday! The last day before the week days begin! :(
Here's another review to cheer up the last day of your weekend! :)
Today's review is for the Saffron Twist-up Eyebrow & Kohl Liner. I haven't used this as an eyebrow pencil as my eyebrows are a blonde/brown colour and the pencil I have is Black, however I have tried it out as an eye liner. In fact I used it to create a subtle smokey eye, which has become one of my favourite looks.
Here's the product description..
Twist-Up eyebrow and kohl eyeliner pencil
To me, that's not overly descriptive so I had no idea what to expect when I took the lid off this product. Was it going to be creamy? Blackest black? Would it be a precise tip or one I needed to sharpen? I had no idea, but I was pleasantly surprised the first time I used this. Yes it is creamy, but only creamy enough to glide across my lid. It's definitely not like some products that are so creamy they come off super fast and aren't even worth putting on. This one is easy to apply, stays well and looks great!
Yes, It is also blackest black, the kind that makes your eyes pop when it lines them. I love blackest black liners, and with this one its easily blend-able too, so if you don't want a harsh line it creates the perfect smudged-out effect.
When it comes to a precise tip or blunt edge, well to be honest its neither. The tip is slightly rounded, just enough to create a neat line and help with accuracy. I love it because I hate eye liners that are so fine you have to draw them on for hours in order to get even the slightest thickness of line! (Okay, so that might be a slight exaggeration, but you know what I mean!)
I couldn't believe how quickly I was able to blend it with the paler eye shadow I had already applied.
This product isn't just for smokey eyes though, it can create a gorgeous, smooth line across your lid. (unfortunately I have no photos of that, but I was able to create a pretty precise cat eye with it)
