There is something about the Smokey eye makeup that is very smooth yet totally seductive.
This Smokey Eyes Pencil has two ends one with the colour bullet and the other has an inbuilt, smudging brush. The brush applicator is soft & has an easy-to-blend texture. So, get set to create your favorite smokey eyes looks with this!!
Directions for use:
Sadly, there is no sharpener provided so, you can use sharpener from some other eye pencil. Apply along the lash line on upper eyelid or lower eyelid or both as per your choice. Using the soft, smudger brush creates a smooth, dreamy smokey eye.
You can have a look at the swatches to appreciate how this eye pencil looks with and without smudging.
INR 200 approx.
It comes in a metallic looking wooden shell. There is the colour bullet on one side and an integrated brush on the other side. Both the ends have cap for protection that close tight enough. Sadly, there is no exclusive sharpener provided. I feel sharpening leads to a lot of wastage of product so; I would have loved it if it came in a twist up format.
Very user friendly and creamy. Please store it in a cool, dry place. Under heat or direct sunlight, it would melt.
Pros of Catrice cosmetics smokey eyes pencil shade #30, It’s Pleasure, Treasure!
- The Pigmentation of this eye pencil and of any Catrice eye pencil for that matter is good and only two to three swipes are enough excellent colour pay off.
- Texture of this pencil is creamy and so glides on lids very easily without tugging to give you a smooth, bold line.

My experience with Catrice cosmetics smokey eyes shade #30, It’s Pleasure, Treasure!
I would start by describing the colour a bit which is a cocktail between gun metal shade and Copper Brown shade. Have a look at the swatches for a better idea of the shade. If unsmudged, it gives a bold and uniform line. I love the texture which is creamy and makes the pencil really fun to use. There is no sharpener, provided.
The staying power is another major plus as it lasts for 5 to 6 hours. I need a proper makeup remover to get it off my eyes completely. The smudger brush is of excellent quality and it smudges the eye liner very nicely but is still soft on eyes.
