What attracted me to these pencils were the cute colors namely the purple and turquoise and the glitter. The eyeliner pencils came in a packet of 5 for the price of RM29.90 which is super cheap.I mean who wants a plain ol' eyeliner when you can make your eyes pop with glitter around them!!
On a more serious note though, I was curious to take this for a test drive to see if :-
- the pencil is soft
- the glitter would show up after application
On their website, Jordana glitterama is pitched as being "glamorous, glitzy, daring and edgy". They also claim that the "sparkling micro-glitter adds shimmer" and the color promises to be "super intense and creamy". However, I beg to differ.
The pencil was not soft and creamy. I think what made it difficult to apply were the micro-glitter which had a tendency to scratch the lids. The pencils pulled on my lids and did not apply as intensely as I wished it would. This is especially so for Bronze Fest and Black Bash which was a total disappointment in terms of intensity.
You can see from the swatches that the glitter is minimal and not at all that intense which can be a good or bad thing. If the glitter was really intense, then these pencils would be great to use to a party or for a night out. But seeing that it is not that 'in your face' these pencils are suitable to be worn to create a day look without looking too overdone in my opinion.
I wore Black Bash to the office and the glitter was not so noticable - I had drawn a thin line on my top lids that day. Perhaps it would have been more noticable if the line had been thicker. That remains to be seen and perhaps I will swatch these on my eyelids soon to give you a feel of what it looks like that way.
Overall, I am not that enthusiastic about these pencils and I may use it occassionally perhaps but for now, I will stick with what I am using.
