Good morning 🙂
I love eye liners be it in form of pencils or gels or liquid. I have tried a few and have been satisfied with Maybelline colossal and Lakme eyeconic but I wanted to try something new this time so laid my hands on Faces eyeliner this time. Being oily skin, most of the eye products smudge on me and don’t stay put for long. The SA told me that it doesn’t smudge, is waterproof and stays there for as long as I want as it is based on gel formula which once dries up stays intact. Ok. I believed her.
But what I found out later!! It passed or failed….read out to know more 🙂
What Faces Canada says about the eyeliner pencil –
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.
Rs. 349/- for 1.15gm.
Shelf life –
This black eyeliner comes in black plastic like pencil form that has a cap to close it. The cap fits tightly thus making it convenient to carry. There is no sharpener accompanying it. The end of the pencil and the cap both are of the same colour as liner. Since, mine is black these are black. But for coloured, it makes it very convenient to choose the colours.
Texture and pigmentation –
Soft creamy texture but doesn’t break. Very easy to apply, glides on smoothly on eyes without any tugging or anything and gives intense black colour. Dries to a matt finish and becomes non – smudging and waterproof. Pigmentation is great, black means black in true sense. A single stroke gives perfect colour, for waterline too. Infact, you have to be perfect while applying as there is no chance of mistakes 😛
My Experience with Faces Eye pencil –
This eye pencil is one of the blackest I have ever come across. One swipe and you see the bestest of pigmentation. I purchased this with lots of hopes and for my upperlids, my hopes became true. But for waterline!!
I love the pigmentation of this liner and the texture and colour. I recently used Coloressence eyeliner and God!! I have to scratch it to get any colour. In that sense, it is the best, glides on so smoothly on my eyes. It stays there for my upper lashline the whole day. I don’t mind a little bit of fading n all. But smudging is a concern for me. I do not apply a very thick line with this liner as that smudges it for me. And for waterline, it smudges always. I don’t blame it completely as most of the liners smudge for my oily lids. In fact, only liquid eyeliners work best for me but mostly, they are not waterproof.
Except the smudging, this eyeliner is a good one. When applied in a not so thick line and not on waterline, it stays for me and works too. I adore the pigmentation and the formula. I use baby oil to remove it completely from my eyes else it doesn’t go.
I personally love those roll on pencils more than these needing sharpening as either you don’t get that perfect tip or a lot of product goes waste. But, it sharpens with ease and has not broken till today. I love how it sets perfectly seconds after applying. So, if you want to smudge it, you have to be quick. All in all, a good spend.
- Great intense black colour.

- Not so expensive, good quantity given.
- No irritation on waterline too.
- Tight fit cap, makes it convenient to carry along.
- Stays on long.

- It smudges for my oily lids and on waterline too.
- The tip gets very thick after single use so need to sharpen every time.
Overall Rating –
I would recommend it to all except those with very oily lids. It is a great formula and the colour and colour pay-off both are amazing. At the cost it comes, you won’t regret it. In fact you will love the texture and the results. Try it!!
