These pencils are the last part of Catrice Spring Summer 2013 collection that I have for now. They initially come in 8 shades but I decided to start with two. You never know, if they quality is good or bad. I’ve got the 080 These Blues are Made for Walking and 060 Moss Undercover.

These eye pencils are retractable ones, with an in-built sharpener. Frankly, I never sharpen the retractable eye pencils. This is also my favourite kind as they work the easiest. Its texture is in between dry and thick: it applies very well and lasts good too but it’s not too oily. I am not sure if these pencils are waterproof but they are longlasting: after I’ve done swatches it too me some time to take it off (even with water and soap). They are comfy to wear (oh yes there are some eyepencils that irritate my eyes). These don’t do that. I’ve worn it for a whole day, just an eye pencil and mascara. It had some minor smudges but they really were minor it was almost invisible. Basically in the evening I found it the same place I applied it in the morning. The pigmenation is ok: I needed to apply several layers to achieve a good line.

Overall opinion:

I found these eye pencils pretty to work with and I’m sure I will use them in lots of makeup. They are really longlasting. You can’t apply them on the waterline: of course, because they are waterproof. The shades are quite nice but nothing special or super beautiful. Just good basic shades that everyone needs to have and especially considering the price I think these eye pencils are great!

Overall note: 7 out of 10.

Price: 2.29 euro each.

UPDATE: 4/08/2014

I had to throw these eye pencils away because they dried out! I really think that’s too soon so I have to lower my note to 4!
