Swatches of " Black bandit,  Precious Pink, Twinkle Teal, Plum Passion & Grassy Green" without Flash 
Swatches in Normal Light of "Iconic Ivory, Boldly Bronzed & Gunmetal" 

Black Bandit:   a black with silver sparkles i love this i was expecting it to be more of a gone off black but it wasnt its jet black......... It's very easy to apply, creamy, it has a soft texture and it's quite long lasting as eyeshadow base.

Precious Pink:  a shimmery baby pink with silver sparkles not as pigmented as some of the eyeliners but still a fab colour i love it as an eyeshadow base:) 

Twinkle Teal:  It’s a really pretty dark teal eyeliner with a lighter teal shimmer and silver glitter this is definately one of my favourites.  looks well over black shadow.......

Plum Passion:  is a deep purple but can give a pinky purple pay off depending how  much of it you too has a silver shimmer to it but this is fab all over the lid.....its also great to make those green eyes pop 

Grassy green:  This is a bright green with a tint of yellow shimmer in it i also love this shade this is one of my favorites also 

Iconic Ivory:  This is a pure white with a hint of shimmer it also is a wee bit metallic but this is perfect for the inner corner of your eye and lower lash line to brighten up your eyes i love this :) 

Boldly Bronzed:  This is a lovely bronzy brown with hint of gold shimmer, this is perfect for the top & lower lash line i have notice this is longer lasting than some of the other shimmer pencils

Gunmetal:   This is a lovely grey with silver shimmer i find this perfect got the smoky eye look :) 

They come in 9 different shades :) They come with a sharpener in the lid, which at first I thought was a good idea. But after I used the sharpener to sharpen the Black Bandit, I wasn't happy with it After using the lid sharpener some of the shavings (along with the actual liner colour) gets stuck to the sharpener blade/plastic lid and when I put the lid back on the pencil it smudged all in the lid/over the top of the pencil.  Of course the sharpeners are ok if you make sure to clean them straight after each use but i wont or dont have the time to be doing that so i just use my own sharpener.

So why should you buy them?????? Well they are inexpensive. Have you ever seen a good quality branded eyepencil for just £1.50? Colours are very soft and rich and nicely pigmented. They work even better if you warm them up a bit but your dont even have to do that as they are creamy enough.  They glide on smoothly. Does not tug your eyes. They have small shimmer bit. So, it also looks good as an eye-shadow. i find them easily wearable in daytime.  The darker shades smudge well for that fab smokey eye effect......i will mention they are not waterproof but do stay in place all day.  They are not so good on the waterline but work well on the lower lash line.  

So in all girls im impressed with these liners for the price they were i was expecting less but got more.....ive got one more shade to purchase but it was out of stock when i bought the other 3 ....have you got any of these liners what do you think leave me a comment :) 

until next time girls

I like these.
Specially as a powdered eyeshadow base. But I don't think they should be labelled eyeliners, they are more like shadow sticks.
