Posting an outfit shot on a blog review article just to mess with you guys. LOL! ;)
A few weeks ago, Shu Uemura sent me their new product for me to try out (thank you!). I was so ecstatic when I opened the package because…
*cue in drumroll*
DRAWING PENCILS! If you’re an artist as well, I’m sure you’d be as excited as I was.
It comes in 21 shades and 4 textures. Imagine all the possibilities!
It came in a very sleek and colorful tin pencil case.
Which color/s did I receive? /heavy breathing and sweaty palms.
Texture is matte and a bit chalky but glides on quite easily.
The pink pencil’s texture is creamy and contains glitters — glides on smoothly and easily.
I was shocked when I swatched the green pencil as it came out in a very solid black with a hint of green. Was never really a fan of the color green so — yay!
I am happy to report that this pencil liner has a very high ‘smudge tolerance level’ — is there such a term?
I initially smudged it using my fingers and it did not budge on bit! A+ on that!
I decided to take it to the next level and used a rough tissue paper (lol). Since the black liner is a bit chalky, it did smudge a bit though not entirely. As you can see, the pink liner did not smudge AT ALL. /You can all applaud now.
I tried to smudge it out while my forearm was wet and I’m happy to say that it is definitely water-resistant if not waterproof.
So, how did I remove it? With only THE BEST CLEANSING OIL ! If there’s one Shu Uemura product I will buy until the day I die, it’s this one! I regret not using this sooner. Unlike other make-up removers, this is very efficient in removing make-up, oil, and grit — plus, it saves you a lot of time; not to mention too much face / skin tugging using cotton pads.
With just one teeny tiny drop of the Shu Uemura Cleansing oil.
Everything just melted off, lol.
How I used it :
So cute right?
I cheated a bit with the wing cause I haven’t purchased a pencil sharpener. Pencil eyeliner was not sharp enough so I used a liquid eyeliner for the wing tip :)
Hope this helps <3
