Eye of Horus Scarab Sapphire Eye Pencil

eye of horus eye pencil review

Apparantly, when it comes to eyeliner indigo is the new black. I have to say, I've been embracing the navy blues lately and I think it makes a lovely change from the standard black liner. I enjoy using my eyeko liquid liner in navy blue for a thick liner and pencils for a more everyday liner. Eye of Horus is a new brand to me and I have to say, I'm loving the whole brand image and packaging - that's definitely a nice feature. 

The sleek and luxurious packaging is the first positive thing, but most importantly it's about the actual product inside. The Scarab Sapphire Goddess Eye Pencil (long name) is a beautiful, deep, rich blue shade - perfect for creating a smokey eye or just adding some eyeliner to your look. This double ended pencil also features a smudger, and because the liner itself is very smooth - it's actually easy to blend and smudge out into more of an eyeshadow - which is fab, I do love a good multi-use product! 

The liner has a satin finish, so it isn't completely matte but I like that is has no large shimmer in it as this for me just doesn't work when it comes to eyeliner - so another positive there! It's very pigmented and smooth to apply, it doesn't drag the eyelid which I also like and doesn't irritate if used on the waterline - it also doesn't budge, which is fantastic considering it's waterproof claim. Overall - a thumbs up from me! 

The Eye of Horus Scarab Sapphire Goddess Eye Pencil retails for £17.50 and is available from www.eyeofhorus.uk.com
