My Experience with Lord and Berry SmudgeproofÂ Eye Pencil in Olive
There were two factors that convinced me to make this purchaseâ€¦not that we girlsÂ need a legitimate reason to buy makeup but still.. Â Firstly, thereâ€™s a major, major offer on this shopping website and we all know what suckers we can be for great shopping deals 😉 Secondly, I am in total awe of anything and everything that is golden olive in colour. Whoever thought of combining olive green with a hint of gold was a genius. The colour suits brown, tanned skin tones beautifully and makes brown eyes pop like nobodyâ€™s business. So, thatâ€™s the story behind why I ended up with this, in case you wanted to knowâ€¦though Iâ€™m pretty sure you didnâ€™t 😉
I was introduced to Lord and Berry when I won a giveaway Â and got to select some stuff of my choice from this brand. This brand is relatively unknown and itâ€™s hard to find reviews online so I just went by my gut and chose some products. The products I received were good but not mind blowing especially considering a lot of them are priced closer to a grand than not. This was okay because they were free! Lol! Anyway, so when I purchased this with my own money, I was able to utilize an offer that the site was offering and I finally paid only around 300 for it. Compare that with its original price ofâ€¦wait for itâ€¦990! I guess the hefty pricing is because itâ€™s a brand based in Britain but stillâ€¦
Lord and Berry Smudgeproof Â Eye Pencil Olive Swatches
When swatched on the hand, the pencil is a golden olive colour but on the eyes the gold doesnâ€™t really show up that much L. Itâ€™s easy to draw a line and doesnâ€™t tug on the eyes but I have to say it isnâ€™t as buttery smooth in texture as the Faces/Colorbar eye pencils. If youâ€™ve used the Faces/Colorbar pencils, you will find this a little hard. The formula is definitely long lasting and lasts all day mostly. If youâ€™ve really pigmented or dark-circle ridden eyes, youâ€™ll have to apply a lot of this to make it show up. I myself have really bad genetic dark circles and the colour doesnâ€™t show up as well as Iâ€™d like it to. Also, since itâ€™s basically just an olive green as opposed to golden olive, it does seem a bit dull on the eyes. But Iâ€™ve found a new way to use this pencil. I apply a nice, thick line and then just layer it with a touch of a really cheap golden olive pigment that I found too shimmery to use on its own. Win Win! The eyeliner base mellows down the overtly shimmery olive green pigment and acts as a primer to make the colour last all day.
LOL fact: This eye pencil was actually listed as an eyebrow pencil on the shopping site. Imagine that! Green eyebrows, anybody?
Price: Rs 990 (online)
Final Recommendation: I definitely donâ€™t recommend buying it at the original price. Iâ€™m sure you could get a similar colour and way better quality from MAC or some other brand. If all else fails and you really, really want this colour, then just get Inglot Duraline and mix it with an eyeshadow. If you can get it at a much, much discounted price like I did then go ahead but donâ€™t expect it to glide like butter on your eyes 😉
