I love eye pencil as much as eyeshadows. There were times that I don't feel like patting on shadows just because I was so lazy to do so. For those lazy days an eye pencil is on the rescue!
I was rummaging counters and counters of make-up at SM Department store for affordable eyeliner. The color should be vibrant and opaque without breaking the bank.
I saw these eyeliners lying beside eyebrow powder at Nichido counter. I have tried Nichido products before, I wasn't impressed so I'm not expecting too much from these eyepencil. I tried applying it on the back of my hand and I can’t believe how creamy they are unlike other eyeliners I have tried. I decided to buy two colors that I don't have yet.
|From Left: Vivid Turqouise, Deep Plum|
|The color stays on the skin after 6-7 smudges|
Affordable at Php80 – Steal!
Vibrant colors without breaking the bank
Glides on smoothly without tugging
Creamy and Easy to apply
One swipe is enough to get the color I want
Does not irritate my eyes when used on waterline
Smudges like crazy!
Shading sponge is useless
Would leave a panda eye if used as an eyeshadow
Although this eye pencil is not smudge proof, I think it's water proof. I put it under running water but the color stays in place with the same omp to it. I normally use it on my waterline if I want to look awake without eyeshadows. The shading sponge is useless, it just absorbs the color when used. I suggest using a proper shading brush if you want to use it as an eyeshadow base or your finger would be perfect.
It is a very pretty color. If you want a vibrant eyepencil at an affordable price then you should give Nichido Color Intense eyepencil a try. Php80 wouldn't hurt if you didn't like it.
These has remain in my make-up kit and I would definitely repurchase the other shades.
