My experience with Faces Long wear Metallic Plum Eye pencil:
Metallic plum is more of a night shade. It is smudge proof and waterproof but causes a lot of product wastage as it is the normal sharpen pencil. I have been so used to the retractable eye pencils now, that these normal pencils feel a burden to me as it is to be sharpened every time before applying.
Talking of the stay power, it’s pretty decent. It stays on for around 5 hours. This shade makes the eyes look sensual and dramatic. This shade would suit all skin shades.
Coming to its drawback, this particular eye pencil makes my eyes watery when I apply it. Also after a few hours post-application, I feel irritation on my eyes and it feels like it is hurting. I wear lenses and therefore cannot risk using such products that will irritate my eyes and so avoid wearing this eye pencil now-a-days.
I will rate this pencil 5 out of 10 for it makes my eyes watery and also hurts a little.
Will I recommend this product?
For people who like to experiment with colored eye pencils, you can give it a try. But the sensitive eyes should better keep away.
