An eyeliner Pencil Worthwhile: Diana of London Super Long Wear Eyeliner in 07-Blackest black

 Hey friends!!
I share with you my thoughts on a recent addition to my Eye Make up Products.

Know it!!
It is medium length eyeliner pencil in 07-blackest black shade. Instead of wood, the lead of pencil is molded in plastic, with a transparent cap.

 Use it!!
 Diana of London Super Long wear eyeliner is a quite pigmented. I won’t say it is the absolute blackest black in the town but being pigmented makes it pretty near to perfect.

The finish is partly creamy, that gets applied in one on the lid and two sweeps across the waterline easily.
The lead is really remarkable as it does not snap at a single stroke. It glides easily and sharpens well so keeps its tip intact for a good time.
As the lead is in soft plastic kinda stuff the risk of hurting the eye is lesser than it would have been with the wood.

 I normally am not a great user of pencil eye liner. I just have been using them in extreme necessity when nothing else is available. Basically the thick lead tip never lets me draw a thin line so I use them when I want to go for a smudgy look
Diana of London Super Long wear eyeliner was recommended to me for its kohl use. I was already going short on my DMGM Professional Kohl eye pencil and needed something which promised to give longer coverage. My eyes remain wet for most of the time and this almost always gives me panda eyes after some minutes of kohl application.

I had never thought of using an eyeliner pencil for waterline. For once they are pretty creamy and are bound to wear off even sooner than usual kohl. The other reason being that some eye pencils that claim to be waterproof leave some saw like stuff when they are smudged or are on eyes for a while. They certainly will fill some shreds in eye. Thus a thing that is going to have direct contact with naked eye should be chosen pretty carefully.

What I liked about this pencil is that it did not at all give that residue, when tried on skin and rubbed afterward. Though the salesman had told me that to have best of its effects one has to apply and wait for some time to let it settle. This way it will be more long lasting. I seriously could not stay for an hour or two at the counter just to see how long it stays but I tried it for a minute and it was almost right. It did smudge a little but it was pretty less compared to other pencils. I was really shocked that after washing my hands thrice it still was there; even the smudged part was intact. Thus it proved to be quite a catch for wet waterlines. I slept once after applying it on waterline and Man!! It was even there when I got up and there was no sphere of blackness around my eye.

There is one thing which I kind of felt irritated with. After applying and during it is on waterline it somewhat gets sticky. Eyelashes stick to each other for a moment when closed hardly. That could be annoying for some.
As an eyeliner pencil I will rate it just fine. Nothing  special. It does is applied smoothly that is quite a plus
Otherwise I simply loved it as kohl overall and am glad to make the purchase.
