Product Description:

These liners add definition to your eyes with flashes of dramatic colors. Jam-packed with high level of pearlescence, your eyes are guaranteed to shine and light-up in a stroke. So soft and smooth, these kohl liners will not tug or drag at the eyelids. It can even double-up as an eye shadow. Available in 10 funky shades.

My $0.02:

Ps: for those who’re not aware of it, Silkygirl is the South East Asian version of Wet n’ Wild (Available only in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei if I’m not mistaken).

Pigmentation & Color (Plus Swatches! :D):
True to their name, these pencils come in 10 different bright colors (see swatch pics below for the name of each individual color). The pigmentation is EXCELLENT – one swipe is all you need to get the color on your lids! All 10 colors are shimmery.

The Applicator & Packaging:

These pencils are slightly over 4.5” long and they come with a clear plastic cap (with no groove or whatsoever to hold on, may I add) which sometimes come off.

Texture:

These pencils are very creamy! Though they’re really shimmery but they don’t feel gritty at all! They smooth right onto your eyelids without tugging! As you can see in the picture above, they’re quite soft though, so do use them gently as not to break them!

Time Test:
These babies lasted more than 10 hours on me, even after I take a shower! They smudge a little on the inner V though, but it’s quite minimal.

Price & Availability:
These pencils are sold for RM14.90 (slightly over US$4), which I consider to be dirt cheap! They’re easily available at all Watsons / Guardian outlets or your local supermarket.

Usage:
I usually use this to line my lower lids (to match my eyeshadow colors, since powders don’t really last on me). I love using the Frosty Silver shade to line my inner V also. I sometimes also use them as eyeshadows when travelling since they stay on forever (until I remove them, that is!).


In a Nutshell:

Excellent drugstore stuff that performs beautifully at a steal!!

Likes: Excellent pigmentation, Glides on like a dream yet does not budge until you bring on the remover, it goes well with most colors, Cheap, Easily Available.
Gripes: Well not really a gripe, but just thought that it would be nice to have one in black. Maybe a black one with gold shimmers? That would be really nice! :D
Repurchase: In a heartbeat!

Rating:
5 Stars ! HG Stuff!!
