I will be showing you Astral Blue & Glimmer Green:
|Astral Blue & Glimmer Green|
Oh-my-gosh, I love these! Love, love, love. Did I say love yet? I prefer them to NYX Jumbo Pencils, coz they don't crease as much. The feel of Astral Blue is almost like my favorite Bourjois Effet Smoky Eyes Pencil, but a little more intense. They are better than cream eyeshadows for sure.
♥ VERSATILE. To quote Lakme- edge, smudge, line, shadow, color or blend. True story.
♥ Very Pigmented. They don't lose their colors when applied on the eyes.
♥ They blend beautifully. You don't necessarily need a brush to blend them, fingers do just fine. Although a brush will make the edges more precise.
♥ Can be used as eyeshadow bases.
♥ They are so easy to use & no-fuss. You can apply them in a moving bus, if not straight out of the pencil.
♥ Waterproof. They won't wash off until you use soap. Hence, long-wear.
- Can't sharpen them even on my big sharpener. I tried sharpening only to end up breaking/squishing the tip. The sharpener only peels the wood around the pencil. What to do???
- All 4 shades are the same color family. Blue-blue, green-green *rolls eyes*
- They crease a little when applied all over lids, but that's expected otherwise they wouldn't be so blendable. The good thing is you can re-blend the line quickly with a finger.
Swatches & EOTDs with both pencils....
Swatches: Astral Blue & Glimmer Green
Astral Blue: Just Astral Blue. Doesn't it look gorgeous? The shade is on the lines of MAC Eyeshadows in Deep Truth & Prussian. I like that it's looks almost matte.I applied only on my lash line and blended upwards up to the crease using a pencil brush.
*Please excuse the clumpy bottom lashes. I cleaned up the green to apply this blue. Gotta save time! :)
Glimmer Green: Did the same here. Although I did have to apply more on my lid, coz this shade is sheerer than Astral Blue. It's because this is more shimmery.
Price ~ Rs.350/-
Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 4/5. When I find a way to sharpen them, I might be a little more generous than that :)
I'm buying all of them. Maybe just Moon Beam, coz Starry Night looks similar to Astral Blue, but lets see. I hope they make more colors.
