Faces Cosmetics Longstay Eye Pencil in Solid Black may be the most stubborn eyeliner pencil I have ever worn BUT...

I am not sure where to start about this black eyeliner pencil. My reaction is kind of strange because, on one hand, it's hand down the best drugstore eyeliner pencil I have ever seen, on the other, it's the only liner which really irritated my eyes.

My experience:
The good part.
I am happy that this requires sharpening. I like any cosmetic pencil which has to be
sharpened because of hygiene issues. When I wore it, I just caught my breath! It went over like a wet and intense gel liner which set in a few seconds and then did not budge at all! The texture is just amazing! Come rain or sunshine, the liner won't go anywhere. It's so soft and wet and sets into such beautiful finish!

Now, I would move over to the bad.

Ever since I got it, I noticed, there was something about it which my eyes did not like. If I layered into thick lines, my eyes got a bit cloudy. Nothing serious, but, something I did notice.
In the last few months, since the pencil was nearing its expiry-date, I started using it more frequently, and yes, I did use up most of it. At the same time, if you remember, I have been complaining of sensitive eyes and frequent eye irritations which compelled me to stay away from, eye makeup altogether.

On keeping a tab, I realized, my lash-line was getting irritated post application of this pencil and yes, apart from itchiness, I have lost most of my sturdy long lashes I used to boast of. 50% of those are gone.

So, you need to discard this pencil, when it approaches the date of expiration.

Faces Cosmetics Longstay Eye Pencil in Solid Black: Reminds me of Glass marking pencils.

Shall I repurchase? However, fond of, and amazed by the texture, etc. I may be, I am not repurchasing this pencil again. Even in the beginning, when it did not give me infections, I had noticed mild discomfort; and having lost most of my lashes, I am definitely not repurchasing.

And the swatch. It used to be even better in the beginning.


These pencils are priced at around 499 INR now I think and if you use regularly and religiously, be sure to exhaust it within three or four months, which is not a bad deal, provided, your eyes don't get irritated by these. I know plenty of ladies who had never had an issue. So, think before you buy.



Verdict: If your eyes react well to this, this might be one of the best deals you have.
