REVIEW: Kryolan Eye Pencil in Purple



REVIEW: Kryolan Eye Pencil in Purple

Eyeliner pencils are a lifesaver, aren't they? Especially when you feel lazy or are in a hurry, eyeliners can jazz up your look in seconds and ready you to rock whatever you are attending... They are easy to use, very travel friendly and can be found in some really fabulous colors. And that's exactly the reason why I am always on the look out for new shades, brands and textures.

On one such quest I came across this Kryolan Eyeline Pencil in Purple. I was visiting the Kryolan store in Lajpat Nagar, Nagar and browsing through base makeup and stuff, when I noticed the glass beakers in the corner holding numerous shades of eyeliner pencils. I have written all about My Kryolan Haul HERE.

So today I am going to be reviewing this pretty colored pencil...

The Kryolan Eyeliner Pencil in Purple comes in a wooden pencil form that looks and feels exactly like a pencil crayon. It's really long though and hence makes me feel that it would last me quite sometime. Texture wise it is a little waxy and a little flaky. Though it does glide on pretty smoothly (without tugging), pigmentation wise its a little lacking.

They cost INR 200/-

One thing that caught my eye with this pencil is that the nib of the liner wasn't sharpened to be pointed, rather it was a blunt nib that made sure that it did not poke or hurt my eye! Kudos for thinking of this Kryolan.

My biggest issue with this eyeliner pencil is that it does not stay on for long. It was gone within a couple of hours of wear leaving behind just a little tinge of color.

Texture and color are the winners here. However, if you are looking for a long stay eye liner pencil with some amazing pigmentation then you may want to give this a skip!

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
