Christine Lip liner and Eye liner Pencils - Review and Swatches
These all pencils are made of sharp able wood, coated with black paint and silver cap. Each pencil bottom is colored with their respective shades and a name is written on silver band beneath it. I loved how they named each pencil to differentiate them. The texture of pencil is creamy but not too creamy to melt is their cap like i have experienced with some high end brands. These pencils have very noticeable but very nice smell.
All of them are highly pigmented and you get good color payoff with just few swipes. They are very soft and creamy which applies smoothly and blends effortlessly. Now that i have mentioned that they are creamy and blend able so they are not smudge proof. I have got 3 Lip Liner and 5 Eye Liners Pencils. Although the texture feels the same for all pencils but lasting power depends on the shade. The dark shade lasts more then light shades. The lip liners can be used for defining the lips or even can be used to fill them. They last almost 2 hours with out eating or drinking and dark leaves the light stain behind.
The staying power of eye liners is less then lip liners. They are quite pigmented but as eye liner their staying power is poor however they work better as an eye shadow or at lower lash line. I have also used them at water line and it works greatly there but will not be long lasting and after 1 and half hour they will gone but the good thing, it is non irritating and doesn't makes my eyes red like i have experienced with some other eye pencils.
Overall besides their less staying power i really love these pencils for their very good pigmentation, creamy texture and for the price they are gem.
