No.7 Gold Metallic Eye Pencils

25 Jul

I recently purchased two of No. 7’s Metallic Eye Pencils, Gold and Camouflage, they are also available in a metallic blue and a purple, both of which look very pretty, but I was on a gold hunt!

These pencils glide on easily, but don’t expect to get a sharp line with them as they are super soft. The Camouflage colour is great for a creating a quick and dramatic smoky eye, and the gold pencil can be used to create highlights at the inner corners of the eye.  The gold colour is also lovely when placed directly over the camouflage colour particularly along the lower lash line, it produces an intense black-gold look and gives your smoky eyes an extra bit of sparkly depth.  . The Gold is a good strong visible gold and the Camouflage is an interesting mix of green, black with a hint of gold. Over all, I was impressed with the colour payoff of these pencils

On the down side… well they are neither long wearing nor waterproof, which is a shame, and in my opinion have a tendency to slide and fade after a few hours so you would definitely need an eye shadow/eye lid primer to help with the staying power.  I’m happy I bought these, in particular the gold pencil, but I don’t think I would purchase them again.

Priced at €9.95 each they are a bit dear, of course you can get them at a better price if you wait for a 3 for 2 offer, and if you have a Boots €7.50 off voucher. Yes you can use the voucher against 3 for 2 products, at least I have on numerous occasions, meaning you could get three of them for a total of €12.40, an average of €4.13 which I guess is reasonable for what they are.
