Let me introduce you to my new favourite pencil eyeliner – meet the Magic Spell Auto Eyeliner by Beautilicious Cosmetics.
Here’s what I like about it:-
- Its easy to use – just twist and draw
- Its soft and does not tug on your lids – applies creamy
- Its dark and can be smudged for a smokey look – yet it does not smudge too much throughout the course of the day
There are 2 colours – Black and Brown. I can’t choose between them. Black is seriously black – its like black crayon and its great for very strong defined eyes. Brown is less harsh and great for a softer look.
What’s cute about the Magic Spell Auto Liner is that its an all in one gadget. It comes with a cute sharpener that you can use to sharpen your crayon if you want a thinner more defined line. Most automatic liners don’t include this so its a nice touch. I don’t usually bother because I line thickly (or it can’t be seen :P )
The other cute gadget is a smudger but then many soft kohl type liners have this smudger so it isn’t quite as unique. It does work well to smudge your line so you can do up a mean smokey eye look. I however, use this liner for everyday – it gives me a clean defined look that does not turn me into a panda by the end of the day.
It looks like my Guerlain kohl pencil has some serious competition!
I have 1 gripe – yes there is a smidge of trouble in paradise – the crayon will finish quite quickly because its soft and creamy. Also, be careful when you are extending the crayon bit – if you extend it too long, it may break as its quite soft. Also, the sharpener bit feels a bit flimsy when its slotted into the back end of the pencil; and the cap of the liner is liable to crack or get lost quite easily.
But then the Beautilicious Magic Spell Auto Liner retails for RM25.90 so its not exactly bank breaking either to get more :)
Pros: Creamy smooth formula, Does not tug at skin, Does not smudge throughout the day, Built in sharpener and smudger, Affordable
Cons: Will potentially finish up quickly, Back bit feels a little flimsy
You can get the liner at Beautilicious counters or better yet, shop at Beautilicious Online. Yep, they now have an online store at www.shopbeautilicious.com which makes it oh so much handier than having to trawl the stores :D [Update: Apparently the online store is closed] This is my mainstay pencil eyeliner for now till I find another that’s just as good or better!
