WHAT SEPHORA SAYS

What it is:

What it does:

Enhance and enliven your eyes with the bold, long-wearing color of these eye pencils. The silky formula is resistant to water, heat, and humidity, ensuring up to 12 hours of smudge-less wear. 

MY EXPERIENCE

From the wide variety of colors available, I chose 2 shades from the collection:

1. Cocoa - A gorgeous chocolate brown color with subtle shimmer. I use it as an eyeliner and even a kohl at times to add a mysterious look to the eyes.

2. Indulge Yourself - A beautiful green which adds a pop of color to the eyes without looking scary or over-the-top. It is one of my favorite go-to pencils when I feel like having fun with my makeup.
Brown eyed girls - this is a must have color! It adds depth and beauty to the eyes and the green color stands out beautifully!

The texture of the pencils is creamy and glides on smoothly, without tugging or pulling. Usually my experience with waterproof eye pencils has been that they tend to be a little hard and tug at the eyes. But this one is a dream to work with!
The pencils are highly pigmented, so one stroke is enough, though the color can be layered.

And for all you beauties with sensitive skin like me - these pencils are Parabens, Sulfates and Pthalates free!! For those who don't know, these are chemicals which are used as preservatives for cosmetics, but can be really harmful for the body, leading to cancer and other diseases.

I wanted to check if these pencils were really waterproof as claimed so I applied the pencil in the morning around 10 and checked around 5 in the evening. The color was intact and had only slightly lightened! This is super impressive stuff, given that nothing stays on my oily lids for more than 3-4 hours!

The swatches on my hand didn't completely vanish till about 5-6 washes with soap! So I can guarantee that these pencils ARE waterproof and only a makeup remover will remove the color completely.

I created the below look with the 2 pencils. I used the brown pencil in the crease and blended it out with a brown eyeshadow and lined the eyes with the green pencil. I highlighted the inner corner with a gold eyeshadow to add a bit of more shimmer and pop to the eyes. Simple and elegant! :)
