BeautyUK jumbo eye liner and eye shadow pencil- black/turquoise Review
How have you been doing this weekend? I so want to getaway this weekend but I am going to be at home o=working on my internship report. However I look forward to get myself a 2-3 days break after I am done with all this mess.
So have you yet read my previous post on Avene D-pigment? If not do read it. It will prevent you from wasting your money on it. Getting to today’s review, I am reviewing a multi functional product in this post. I like when one product solves more than one purpose. It saves you from buying 2 products along with saving space in your makeup kit. So I am reviewing the jumbo eye pencil from BeautyUK which serves the purpose of an eye liner and an eye shadow. BeautyUK is a new brand here on Makeupera but I am sure everybody is aware of it. So let’s dig further into details of the product.
It’s a revelation in style and convenience – this dual use pencil gives black eye liner on one end with a creamy, metallic eye shadow on the other side. They are ideal companions to take anywhere. They work perfectly well with each other and individually too.
This double ended pencil is available in 4 variants of which the eye pencils shade being the same in all the four.
As the name suggests it’s a thick jumbo pencil with 2 pointed ends, one for the eye pencil and other is an eye shadow. Both the ends are covered with tight fitting transparent caps made of plastic which tend to break easily making the packaging not very travel convenient.
The eye pencil has a smooth texture but it isn’t super soft as I prefer my eye pencils to be. If rubbed on the eyes it may hurt a bit. Also as it is a thick pencil the tip isn’t very thin and so this creates a thick line on the eye lashes. The eye shadow on the other hand has a very smooth texture and glides super fine on the eye. It has a shimmery finish to it.
Pros of BeautyUK jumbo eye liner and eye shadow pencil-black/turquoise:
- Dual function product
- Comes in 4 shades of eye shadows
- The eye shadow has a smooth fine texture
- Very handy for on-the-go application
- Easy to use
Cons of BeautyUK jumbo eye liner and eye shadow pencil-black/turquoise:
- Starts to smudge just in an hour
- The eye pencil tip isn’t very sharp and thin so a thin application is difficult
- Not very travel friendly as the plastic caps tend to break
- Sharpening the ends causes product wastage
- The eye liner isn’t well pigmented
- The eye shadow somehow makes my upper lids oily
- Not easily available at stores
- Eye shadow is too bright to suit dark skinned beauties
My experience with BeautyUK jumbo eye liner and eye shadow pencil-black/turquoise:
This is the first product that I used from this brand and it did not impress me much. It turned out to be an ok product for me. When I received my parcel the cap of the pencil had cracks on it which only kept getting bigger with application.
The pencil is so thick that I fail to understand how to sharpen it. It does not fit in my 3 hole pencil sharpener. The stay power is quite disappointing as the liner starts to smudge just after 1 hour of application and the eye shadow makes my eye lids oily and starts to fade quickly.
I will rate it an average 6 out of 10
Will I recommend it?
Though it is a multi functional product, I won’t recommend it to you beauties until and unless you want something like this for on-the-go application.
