Today I will be reviewing Revlon's Colorstay eyeliner in Black Sparkle. I have a sudden obsession with eye pencils and I've always loved sparkly things so both together are a dream :D
I bought this pencil a long time ago but it was just lying there for sometime in my cupboard because of my temporary addiction with nail polishes instead lol.
The eye pencil is black in colour with a nice glitter with it. The texture of the pencil is veryy smooth and glides on the eyelids without a problem. But the fact that it is so creamy makes the pencil nib break very easily. And since the pencil is not a retractable one, sharpening it just makes the pencil finish faster. And sharpening makes the pencil uneven with my Lakme sharpener so using it on my eyelids after sharpening it hurts my eyes :(
The black is dark but not jet black at all. But the pigmentation darkens with more swipes. The colour lasts for about 6 hours on my oily eyelids but it is not at all waterproof. Once the colour settles, it is smudgeproof as well.
Left: 1 swipe, Right: 3 swipes
|Not at all waterproof. No no for rainy days :(|
It passes the smudge test. Yay!
- Lovely colour
- Creamy texture
- Tends to break easily and sharpening it is not easy
- Not at all smudge proof
Yay or nay to recommend:
If you have a Revlon sharpener, yes it's amazing :D
