The best pencil eyeliner I have come across: Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil in Purple: Review ,Swatches and EOTD

Though I can't boast to have tried umpteen colored eye pencils but with whatever little experience I have,I can safely say liquid eyeliners are my pick instead of pencils,felt tips and gel eyeliners. The reason being the amount of control that the brush of liquid eyeliners provide for the that sheer precision. Still..out of all the other brands of eye pencils I have Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencils are sure winner!!!
Read on to know why:


Product Claims: 
Soft, creamy eye liner pencil glides on easily over the eye lid to define and highlight your eyes. The long staying formula lasts all day, yet is gentle and safe for people with sensitive eyes.

Price Vs. Quantity: INR 349/ 1.15gm

Packaging:
Faces Long Wear  Eye Pencil comes in regular pencil form that needs sharpening. The pencil has a colour codded cap and end which makes it easier to locate. The best part is that it has its basic info on the pencil itself like the manufacturing and expiry dates,weight,price and shade name.

Shade:
Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil comes in a variety of beautiful pigmented shades:
  • Teal
  • Forest Green
  • Purple
  • Solid Black
  • Black Sparkle
  • Metal Brown
  • Navy Blue
  • Turquoise Blue
  • Gray
  • Aqua Blue
  • Metallic Plum
  • Copper Rose
  • Solid Brown
I have Navy Blue,Forest Green and Purple from the lot. Purple is a pure deep deep purple shade. Not plum not lavender...just plain dark purple sans any shimmer. For all those who don't like ultra bright eye looks yet want a pop of colour..this is the one for you and for all those who want to try something other than black yet not eye-turner!!!
Texture:
The texture of Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil is one of the many USPs of this product. It is super-creamy..glides on like a dream...true to the claims!!!
 
Pigmentation:
Super-pigmented...one swipe and you are good to go. I need another swipe only for the proper finish and not for depositing colour.
 
Staying Power:
Its a Hero in this department too. Absolutely smudge-free despite being so creamy to apply is the biggest "Yayyyy" feature of the product. Moreover,it beats the Indian Summer Heat too and that too effectively!

This is how it looks on me in different lightings:
My Likes:
  • Smudge-free.
  • Creamy to apply.
  • Well-pigmented.
  • Good for beginners.
  • Purple suits Indian skin tones really well.
  • Colour coded cap and end.
  • Water resistant.
  • Amazing staying power.
  • Matte finish.
  • Water-line safe.
My Dislike:
  • The fact that the brand has risen the price from 249/- to 349/-
  • Sharpening leads to product wastage.
  • It is so creamy that it needs to be refrigerated before sharpening in summers.
  • Drawing a thin line isn't easy with this one!
Last Word:
Despite the cons..this is THE BEST eye pencil I have used till date!

Repurchase:
For sure!!! 

Over All Rating: 5/5
