What Faces Canada says about the product :

 Soft gentle pencils in a rainbow of shades. Use them to enhance your natural eye color for dramatic effect or give you that bright-eyed glow. Gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.

 

My take on the product 

 

Faces long wear eye pencils come in a black plastic pencil packaging with a colored end and a colored cap that makes it really easy to locate different shades. Many other brands have the colored ends but I think in this case the colored cap makes it much more convenient. The only slight issue with these pencils is that they aren’t always smooth to sharpen and may need a little pressure.

The texture of the pencil is creamy yet totally workable. I find Colorbar pencils a bit too creamy which leads to the pencil crumbling if too much pressure is applied (and during sharpening as well) but with these, this problem is solved as the texture is smooth yet not too soft. The pigmentation is great and single stroke gives true color. The liner sets into a waterproofsmudge proof finish quite quickly after application and doesn’t budge till removed. I haven’t tested these on the waterline as generally waterproof pencils sting my eyes when used on the waterline. I think these work best on the lash lines.

Metal Brown is true deep chocolate brown shade with a soft metallic finish. It’s not outright metallic or shimmery but just has a sheen that makes it look more interesting than a flat, matte brown. It has a coppery warmth about it that reminds me of L’Oreal Endless Chocolate eye shadow (though this is darker). A great shade for everyday wear, I would recommend this to everyone!
