This is one of the things I had been wanting to get ever since I saw it on Tina’s blog (What Tina Loves). Unfortunately I misremembered and got the non-automatic pencil. I got the Essence Kajal Pencil in Everybody’s Darling, which is a sparkly purple shade. This costs Php79 and I got it from the SM Makati branch. This is how the pencil looks like.
One of the things that you will notice immediately is how soft the product is. In fact, it broke upon first use! This product requires an extremely light hand for application. Take a look at the swatch on my arm.
It’s a really great shimmery shade, and shows up well on the lids too.
It’s quite buildable (just use a really light hand!) and relatively long wearing too. As you can see my under-eye was already sweating, but the Essence eye pencil was pretty much unaffected.
Pros: inexpensive; beautiful shade of purple
Cons: super soft product, needs a light hand; available only in a few locations
