Faces Purple Eye Pencil: Swatches, Photos, Review

Sometime back I had reviewed blue pencil of this flock and I had said that I was planning planning to make a 12 color set of these Faces pencils :). So here's my second step to that set.

Earlier Prunella was my ultimate favorite for a purple. But unfortunately, it started giving me rednes after an eye infection. So though it is still lying half used, I can't use it. But I needed a 'purple' for sure. I hunted in a few brands, but either they were light or shimmery. I finally found my unadulterated, pure purple shade at the Faces counter at DLF Place and I grabbed it at once. Trust me this must have been my quickest purchase ever.

Product Details

  • Price: Rs 249 for 1.15 gm (Currently a 10% off)
  • Shade: Purple
  • Range: Faces Long Wear Eye Pencil (Wide range of colors available)
Now, in terms of my review and experience, it is very similar to my review of the Blue shade here. It is the color that's different.

The Color
Compared to the Navy Blue, this has a slight, and I repeat very slight shimmer. This swatch is not perhaps not the best snap, but the color is nice, dark and thick. It's kinda smoother on the skin than it appears here.

The color is very similar to Prunella. Will compare sometime.

What I like about Faces Purple Eye Pencil

  • The Color and Pigmentation: It lives up to its name and is a true purple eye pencil, with a good pigmentation, 2 strokes and you're done.
  • The Texture and Finish: Its soft to apply and has very slight-shimmery finish. 
  • Long Stay and Smudge-proof: Well it stays on till you clean it off! Also I wear it for 8 hours and it does not smudge unless you rub it real hard.
  • The Price: While all these sound similar to Chambor Eye Tattoo or Colorbar I Glide, here's what is different - the price! It costs 250 for 1.15 as against 325 for 1.1 for Colorbar, without too much difference in the overall performance! And I actually got this for s 224 after the 10% discount. Price is a big plus for sure.
Overall Rating: 4/5 (Price gets some extra weight)

Will I Buy it Again? Of course, I have to complete the 12 color set :) and I have 10 more to get..
