THE BODY SHOP: CARBON EYE DEFINER (BLACK)

July 26, 2012


Honestly, at first I thought this is a normal eyebrow pencil, because this pencil is dual-ended, the pencil and the sponge to blend the color to your eyebrow. But I didn't buy this as an eyebrow pencil, but to line lower lash line, thats why I bought the black one. I should've bought the brown one if I wanted to use it as an eyebrow pencil, right? ;)


And I found out that many people use it as an eyeliner pencil, I tried it then. I couldn't say that this eye definer is good as eyeliner, well the product does a pretty good job, but there are some problems that this product has if I use it as eyeliner. The first thing is, the eyeliner doesn't go really smooth, I should put a little more effort to apply it on your eyes back and forth so the color will pay off, which is not good for our eyes.

Second thing is, I have partial-monolid eyes. So it means that I have to put much more eyeliner in the inner part of my eyes so the color will show off. And this product doesn't do a great job for my half monolid eyes, it smudge and the color doesn't stay too long (BOOO!!).

Last thing is, I cannot tight-line and water-line my eyes with this eye definer. The color doesn't pay off at all. So I use this eye definer just like what I wanted from the start, only to line my lower lash line, not for my upper lash line.


I think this pencil will work best as an eyebrow pencil beside it only gives sheer color, it also has sponge to blend the color so your eyebrow will look natural. The sponge applicator is not a soft sponge, it has the pencil wood underneath the sponge so the sponge is so stiff, doesn't matter how hard you blend the color with the sponge, the sponge will not break easily. Really easy to remove, even without make up remover, just wet wipes will do.

(After being smudged out with smudger)

I would recommend this if you want to use this product as eyebrow pencil or line you lower lash line. I wouldn't recommend this for everyone who has oily lids, the color fades easily. So overall, it's pretty expensive for a pencil which only used for lining your lower lash line. I definitely will not buy this carbon eye definer again.

  4. Hello, thanks for visiting and left comment on my blog :)
    If it smudge easily like that I'm sure it won't last more than 1 hour on my eyelids, I have really oily lids =='
