So last week I went to the market and there I spotted that Maybelline ColorShow Crayon kohl pencils were on sale. Their usual price is 6.95$ in Australia and these were for just 2.95$ on sale. I was thinking to give a try to that Color block trend from quite a long time so I took advantage and picked some of them.
There are 9 shades available in this crayon kohl and all of them are nice to add in your makeup stash. (in some countries you can get 12 shades)
I wanted to pick all the available shades but as I have most of the shades in other brands I end up picking only three shades.
1- Magic magenta (very beautiful bright pink/magenta)
2- Sparkle grey (A beautiful metallic grey shade)
3- Coralista (A bright orange)
The product is versatile because some of the shades can be used as lip product as well. While others can be used not only on eyelids which is trendy of course but they even wear nicely on the water line. They apply smoothly and after a few seconds of play time they set and stay well even on my oily lids and does not smudge or fades. Can be easily removed with makeup remover. They say on their website that you can remove this with soap and water but You will face some difficulty removing this way. I am a big lipstick eater. I hate myself for that. This product stays on my lips almost 6-8 hours even I eat or drink in between. Thumbs up.
Here I am sharing an easy tutorial of the look I have created using one of these pencils in magic magenta.
2- Applied this frosty shade On my lid. (MUA heaven and earth palette)
3- Applied brown/bronze shade and applied in my crease area from the same palette making a V and applied same shade under my lower lash-line.
4- Blended this really well so no harsh lines were left there.
5- Highlighted under brow bone and inner corner of eye. Then I Applied magic magenta along my lashline and created a wing.
6- I lined my water line with a black pencil and then smudged under lower lash.
7- Following the pink liner I applied black gel liner. I tried to apply as close to lashline as possible.
8- Apllied generous coats of mascara.
9- Applied magic magenta pencil all over my lips and over the top applied MUA lipstick in shade 3 which is a beautiful bubble pink and got this beautiful magenta shade.
