Barry M Glitter Eye Crayon
Advantages: Cheap, looks good, doesn't smudge, longevity
Disadvantages: The glitter isn't very visible
Usually I buy the lipsticks in the Barry M range but after swearing by them for so long I did eventually take the plunge and buy the other products in their range. I'm always intrigued by their girly graphics on the packaging of the products and the colours that they use etc. I always find that the products in their range are affordable too which is always a big bonus especially on a student budget! This glitter eye crayon is a product that I purchased several months ago from my local Boots store using a gift voucher that I received as a thank you gift.
The pencil looks like any other normal pencil but it is a little chunkier than a standard pencil. The body of the pencil is coloured and glittery the colour of the pencil matches with the 'led' in the pencil. In my case I purchased a black glitter pencil as I assumed that it would compliment my kohl eyeliner and go well with a smoky eye look. Also on the body of the pencil is some text, in my case the text was silver/white. The text says 'BLACK GLITTER EYE CRAYON' and has the logo of Barry M emblazoned upon it.
The led itself is super, super soft even to touch it is very soft which I reasoned would be absolutely great as, after all, you do have to use the pencil on a very sensitive area. The pigment of the led also looked very dark which is what I had hoped for. I used the pencil beneath my waterline to create a dramatic, defined look for a night time look. Although the colour was very, very dark the glitter was not very prominent which was quite disappointing. The only time I really saw the glitter was when I scribbled with it on a piece of paper! I tried to use it on my lids to compliment my smoky eye look and this time more of the glitter was visible but not how I would have hoped for.
The crayon was easy to use and apply and did not cause any redness or irritation to my eyes. I also loved the longevity of the product as it stayed put all night with very minimal smudging in fact on occasion I have gone to bed without removing this product before hand and found that in the morning it is still there and not smudged! Overall, I use this product now as more of an intensified eyeliner as it doesn't really work as anything else, if I had another colour then this may work well as an eyeshadow but I don't really want to wear black eyeshadow. I paid around £4 for this product which is quite reasonable but doesn't really do as it says in my opinion.
