Beautyuk metallic pencils are great worn alone or underneath eyeshadows,pigments or glitters as a base.
The pencils are a generous size and the product is beautifully creamy which makes applying very simple and gentle on the skin. See the swatches below.
Application-Applies straight from pencil and glides onto skin with little effort.
Colour Payoff-These are very well pigmented and can be layered for a stronger finish.
longevity-It lasted longer underneath eyeshadow as the creamy texture can break down with oils on the eyelids making the product crease and become a little wishy washy.
Shade-There’s 6 available. All of which you can see above.
Overall Opinion-I like that these leave more of a sheen than glitter finish, they work great underneath glitters and make pigments stand out and look stronger. They’re also pretty good as eyeliners but as they’re quite chunky it will be a little difficult to get a thin line unless you use a brush.
The red is more of an aubergine shade and doesn’t resemble red in the typical sense. I would say it was purple if anything. I would recommend applying this straight to the lid then blending a little so it doesn’t slide everywhere if your eyelids become quite oily.
For the price I would recommend giving these a go especially if you use glitters and loose pigments. I personally don’t think I’d wear these alone but you may like to do so.
Let me know your thoughts if you have these!
