MUA intense colour eye liner pencil | Review


I was so excited to finally get my hands on this eye pencil. Except for the fact that my sister kept talking about it to me, it's also 1 pound! which is about N300 (Lord help this exchange rate o).  But it's pretty cheap! Do you think it can deliver? hmmmn...let's find out :D

The major problem(s) I had with my Jordana kohl eye pencil was that it was not creamy at all. It was scratchy when I applied it to my eyes and I had to go back and forth with the pencil before I could even get 'partial' pigmentation.
I got the MUA intense colour eye liner pencil in hopes that it would be an upgrade to the Jordana pencil. As far as ease of application and the consistency of the product, I can say that I am quite pleased.
As for the pigmentation, I'd give it a 6.5 out of 10. It isn't very black with one swipe (from the swatch photo above) but with two or three swipes it becomes quite black and I think it's still good because compared to some other more expensive eye pencIls out there, they aren't always quite pigmented with the first swipe either.
One little problem I have with this product is that after about five hours, it begins to smudge but I  think this also depends on whether your eyes get watery easily or not.
I'm still in search for the perfect eye pencil. But if you are looking for a good and very cheap eye pencil, then MUA is your guy. hehehehe.
I'm not overly crazy about this product but to be fair, it's pretty hard to satisfy a makeup junkie like me right? >_>
Do you have suggestions on products I should try? Have you used the MUA pencil before? Please comment below. I would love to know your thoughts :)

  2. Maybelline colossal kajal is still my favourite. To avoid the smearing/smugging, apply loose powder right below the liner application to set it in place. It creates a barrier that prevents the smear
