H&M Colour Essence Eye Pencil in Lovely Lilac Review & Swatches

By Wednesday, August 12, 2015 , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Today I am reviewing H&M Colour Essence Eye Pencil in Lovely Lilac which I have recently got from H&M New Makeup Collection you can see what all I got here. The colour is really pretty and it swatched nicely as well but I was quite sceptical as to how it actually going to perform, whether I am going to like it or not. So let’s see if this is a hit or a miss.

Product Description: A richly pigmented eyeliner pencil with soft and creamy formula. It is easy to apply and sit all day. The pen is available in a variety of intense shades with different effects - from matte to metallic, pearlescent and glittery. 1.2 g. 


Price: 5.7 USD

Packaging: It is a sharpenable plastic eye pencil with colour coded bottom. It is bit difficult to sharpen it due plastic body.

Performance: H&M Colour Essence Eye Pencil in Lovely Lilac is a bright purple shade with slight shimmer. Texture of this is soft and creamy and goes on smoothly on eyes without any tugging or pulling. It can be smudged easily and you have a little room to play around but if you smudge it too quickly or put too much pressure while doing so it sheers out. It is well pigmented but still I like to go over twice to get the desired intensity of colour. Staying power is amazing it stayed put for the whole day on my upper eyelids with slight fading by the end of the day nothing major. I was so surprised because pencil eyeliner doesn’t last that long on me, I have quite an oily eyelids and I was not expecting that this would last this long. I would have been happy if it stayed even for 4-5 hours. That’s not it there’s more, It did not get transferred to my upper eyelids, once set it didn’t budge and is almost smudge proof. Almost smudge proof? It doesn’t get rubbed of completely with slight touching or rubbing, just fades a little. I have used it on my waterline as well and it does not irritate my eyes at all. It is nowhere mentioned if it is waterproof or not. It comes off easily with any makeup remover. The formula is creamy so the tip loses it shape very quickly and you have to sharpen it to maintain a pointy tip. If you are someone who likes thin precise liners then you would not like this.


The Good:

·         Amazing staying power
·         Does not transfer
·         Smudge Proof
·         Nice shades
·         Did not irritate my eyes
·         Texture is really creamy soft

The Bad:

·         Loose it shape too quickly
·         Sharpening leads to product wastage

This eye pencil has amazing staying and it does not budge. The shade is really nice, texture is soft and smooth. I liked this a lot and would highly recommend them. I am eyeing some other shades from this range. If you can definitely try it out.
