Everyone loves a smoky eye but sometimes we don’t have the time, patience or the clean brushes to smoke, smoke, smoke with eye shadow. Well fear not as thanks to The Body Shop we can get our smoke on without blending your arms off.
I picked up the Smoky Eye Definer Pencil in a recent Easter Bank Holiday sale, I love The Body Shop but I sometimes over look their make up range but it was on offer and I needed to itch that spending spot that I sometimes get so I popped it into my cart and forgot about it until it landed a few days later on my door step.
My first impressions were to be honest a bit “meh”, it’s an eye pencil and lets face it they are never the most exciting or prettiest products in the make up world. A few days later I thought I’d give it a whirl and see if it was any good and it was! I’m always really picky when it comes to eye pencils as I find they are either too hard and you end up gouging out your eye-ball in a vain attempt to get the product on or they are far too soft and end up all over your face like a not so cute panda.
The Body Shop pencil is the perfect in between of not too hard and not too soft that Goldilocks would instantly approve. It glides on like a dream and while the pigment is not enough that you get a jet black pay off it builds lovely and the smudger on the other end is perfect for smoking it out.
You may have seen one of the popular beauty hack of drawing a # on the outer corner of your eye then blending this out (if you haven’t click here) well this is PERFECT for that!
If anyone has any more cheat products or beauty hacks then please let me know!
