Hello pretty people!
I am back with another eye pencil review today, which is the popular Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil. I picked this up in the shade Metal Brown a couple of months ago and really wanted to review this. To know how this one fared for me, keep on reading!
What The Brand Claims: An extremely soft formula with the ease of application of a traditional pencil. The formula glides on effortlessly and reliably stays put for hours – no matter how busy your day is. It has an excellent and even color payoff. It is waterproof, long wear and free of preservatives. It is dermatologically and ophthalmologically approved.
Packaging: The liner comes in a typical pencil form that is color-coded and sharpenable. How I wish it came in a retractable form! Sigh! Anyways, no sharpener is provided as such with the pencil and you would need to purchase it separately if you don’t own one! The pencil also carries details such as the manufacturing date, expiry date and the shade name.
Color: Metal Brown is a beautiful dark brown shade with subtle hints of shimmer. However, the shimmer is not at all over-the-top ! It is just a slight sheen as can be seen in the swatch below. The color is absolutely stunning and can be worn during daytime or even to work. This is a good pick when you need a break from the classic black liner.
Since it sets quickly after applying, you need to work swiftly in order to create a smoky eye. It is smudge proof as well as waterproof.
Formula: The texture is incredibly smooth and easy to work with. It glides on the lids as well as on the waterline with ease without any tugging or pulling of skin.
Pigmentation: The color payoff of this pencil is excellent. A single stroke imparts a good color to the eyes which can then be intensified as per one’s liking.

Staying Power: The liner stayed on me for a good 6+ hours; which I feel is pretty great. However, on sweaty summer days, I did notice the color slightly fading. In addition, removing it is also not a problem. It comes off easily with any makeup remover or a cleanser as well.
Price: Rs 449 for 1.2 gm
