Review: Pencil Me In Cosmetics #PencilMeIn #eyeliner
Everyone wants eyeliner that is easy to use, long-lasting and also that comes in many colors. Well I think I have found a brand that will fit the bill. It is also easy on the wallet. This brand is Pencil Me In Cosmetics.
Linda Eisner started Pencil Me In Cosmetics after having worked over 20 years in the private labeling aspect of the cosmetics industry, personalizing lines for several major companies. Her eye pencils provide long lasting color that is consistent, the shades range from toasty browns and smoky grays to vivid purples and shimmery blues all the way to metallic bronzes. The pencils are great for any skin tone, any gender and any race. They go on smoothly without pulling the delicate skin around the eyes. For convenience there is a pencil sharpener built right into the cap. Ms. Eisner’s experience with the cosmetics industry allowed her to develop the exclusive formula that makes these pencils so unique. The finest natural ingredients, such as antioxidants and vitamins, have been included in the formula to make these pencils appeal to everyone (from businesses to consumers). Pencil Me In Cosmetics has added natural ingredients and blended botanicals like Green Tea Leaf Extract, Pine Bark Extract, Grape Seed Extract, Lecithin, Shea Butter, Cacao Butter, Jojoba Oil, Wheat germ oil, and Safflower seed oil. They also include Vitamins A (Retinyl Palmitate), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), C (Ascorbic Acid), Vitamin D and Vitamin E (Tocopherol). By using these ingredients it helps to keep the delicate tissue around the eye area soft and smooth.
I tried out four colors of the Eye Accent Pencils: Meteor, Nutmeg, Orchid Sparks and Purple Passion. I chose these colors because I like browns and purples. Using purple shades really brings out the green in my blue-green eyes. Brown brings out the blue in them. If you look at he color wheel you can see that purple is exactly opposite from green and brown is opposite blue. These are complementary colors and they make the other color look stronger.
Meteor is a frosted metallic silver brown shade. Nutmeg is frosted golden brown, with a hint of red. Orchid Sparks is a creamy bright violet purple glitter. And Purple Passion is frosted violet purple. All of the pencil colors are unique and were created to not replicate any shades that are currently available in the cosmetic marketplace. The pencil barrels are painted to exactly match the core color. Pencil Me In Cosmetic eye accent pencils are ‘green’ pencils, as they contain vitamins and anti-oxidants to help keep the eye area looking smooth and young (as mentioned above). The pencils can be used on the upper lid and lower lid for dramatic or natural effects. The pencils provide long-lasting, consistent color. It is possible to layer shades or smudge shades to create sexy finishes. The core is very creamy and firm enough so that the points do not break easily. The pencils apply smoothly without pulling the delicate skin around the eyes.

I like the Pencil Me In Cosmetics eye pencils very much. They go on smoothly, are very creamy and are definitely do not tug at my ‘aging’ eye area. I also like that there is a HUGE color selection to choose from. There are 30 shades of pencils in the collection as of right now. On the website you will find that they have links dedicated to each hair color and to warm and cool tones so that it will be incredibly easy to pick out the pencils that are perfect for you. I found that the eyeliner lasted all day long and did not smudge or come off. It is definitely a great deal at this price.
