Faces Longwear Eye Pencil, Navy Blue : Review

Today we are sharing one of the best eyeliner pencils we have tried so far...the Faces Longwear Eye pencil. I have been using Navy Blue for quite some time now and these pencils are just amazing.

What Faces Canada says aboutthe product :
 Soft gentle pencils in a rainbow of shades. Use them to enhance your natural eye color for dramatic effect or give you that bright-eyed glow. Gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.

These pencils are the regular sharpenable ones (plastic) with a coloured cap and end which makes them easy to locate. The packaging is simple and sleek. The texture is very smooth and creamy. It glides beautifully on the lids, no tugging or pulling at all, giving great pigmentation in one stroke. It sets quickly into a smudge proof, waterproof, matte finish and it will not budge unless removed with oil/makeup remover. It is definitely a long wear pencil and lasts over 6 hours on me after which it does start to fade but it will not smear or smudge. This one has not caused any irritation even on my waterline (I do not wear lenses so I cannot talk about that). The only downside is product wastage due to the sharpening and well sometimes, it does not come out as a smooth tip. 


Coming to the colour.. do I need to describe it? I mean, look at the swatch below.. isn't that one of the prettiest royal blue you have seen?! It is a perfect dark blue.. not too dark and blackish and not too bright either. It is a shade you can wear easily both day and night. A beautiful deep jewel toned navy blue with very fine silver specks (which are only visible when you zoom in this much :P) 
I find navy blue the next easiest colour to wear after black. It goes well with our Indian skin tones and looks good on all no matter what colour your eyes are :)

Here is how it looks on me. I wear it on the waterliner and lower lash line (thats how I wear all my coloured liners) :

I would totally recommend these pencils! They are quite amazing. I am in love with them (and mom loves their brown one) and will definitely be picking up more shades soon! Navy blue looks good on all eyes (black, brown and well mine are hazel and they look pretty fine on them too), so if you are on the look out for a good blue then you must check this one out.

Price : 349 INR for 1.15g

What's your favourite colour to wear? Do you like navy as much as I do?
