Makeup Review: Maybelline VIVID & SMOOTH eyeliner by EyeStudio


How I got to know about this product?
I saw in Health and Glow and just bought it :)

About the Product: Maybelline EyeStudio Eeye pencil in metallic gray.
It is a normal simple eye pencil but a very smooth one. More like a crayon type.
There are a number of colours.
It can function as an eyeshadow as well if you want just a light wash of colour.



The colour on the extreme left (next to the blue) is the metallic grey


Price: Rs.199/-

Pros of the product:

Very smooth
Easy application
Long lasting
Slight amount of shimmer but not very glittery.
Doubles as an eyeshadow if applied higher on the eye lid.
Nice range of colours

Cons of the product

Not a very dark colour if used as an eye shadow.
Needs to be sharpened well to get a fine line and so this causes a lot of wastage of the pencil.
Not a matte finish.

Overall:
I liked it a lot. Especially the colour that I have. I will buy it again and maybe a different colour this time.
Again for a person new to makeup, this would be a good pencil to practise drawing and making your eyes look fantastic.

This is my opinion based solely on what I felt after using this product. Not influenced by anyone.

Makeup review: Oriflame Veryme Double Trouble eye pencil

Ok so I have a bunch of reviews that have been long overdue. Time is something that never seems to be enough!! No whining. Let's just get started.

I am a FAN of eye makeup. I bought a bunch of new eye pencils/crayon/liner in the past few months and well now seems to be the perfect time to review them since I know have a good idea of what they are like.

First up is Oriflame Veryme Double Trouble eye pencil 

I have never bought anything from Oriflame before because I always believed it was kinda expensive. But it's actually not too bad. And of course now that I am earning, well it's okay for me to spend my hard earned cash. Getting back to the review

How did I get to know about this product?
Well we had a Diwali Mela in our apartments and there was one stall where a representative was selling Oriflame, Avon and Tupperware products. I wasn't planning to buy anything but when I saw this eye pencil I just fell in love with the colours and the feel, I just had to have it!!

About the product


It is a small pencil weighing 1.38g. 2 colours in one pencil.  There are some interesting colour combinations. and it costs 179rs.

The one i have is called Goddess Green and the colours are sea blue and peacock green. (I love both colours :):))

Pros of the product



  • The pencil is really smooth.
  • It has a bit of shimmer (Just the right amount I feel). 
  • It is really long lasting with a rich colour. 
  • Doesn't smudge easily and doesn't wash off with water. 
  • Really easy to apply especially for those who are terrible at putting liquid liner or are trying their hand for the first time at using eye pencils.



Cons of the product

  • You need some kind of make up remover to remove it and that is a pain especially after a long tiring day.
  • If you don't remove it properly you will see traces of it till the next day. 
  • It's not easily available, you need to find a Oriflame representative to buy it from.



The centre 2 colours are the colours of this pencil.


What I think of the product?
I LOVE it!! and I would so buy it again. Maybe in other colour combinations. I think it's really worth the money. It look great and feels good. I would recommend this for anyone who is just getting into make up.


This is just my opinion based solely on what I felt after using it. It isn't to influence anyone.
