A Hint Of Chocolate.......


I have always been a black kohl pencil girl, however as i have gotten older i prefer the softness a brown pencil on my waterline. Black gives a very smoky and smoldering look, and i personally think it's a bit too harsh for day wear, which is why a chocolate coloured pencil is perfect.

With brown eye pencils, they are perfect for everyone of all different skin tones and eye colours. It adds definition to the eye area without looking like a racoon and it's great for those who don't like using a black pencil.


*Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pen (CopperGlow)

The Pixi Silky Eye Pens glide on like butter and feel silky upon application. The shade is a warm brown, with almost a red undertone. It is one of the most softest eye pencil i have ever felt, however i have noticed that it does smudge on the inner corner of my eye and doesn't last too long on my waterline.

KIKO Vibrant Eye Pencil (603)

This is my favourite pencil out of the lot because it is a very dark brown but not dark enough that it looks black. It is extremely creamy and soft to use on the waterline, and it's the very few pencils that stays put without smudging. It's also the cheapest out of all five brown pencils.

*Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil (Corrupt)

Corrupt is a shimmering deep brown with intense pigmentation. The pencil is very smooth to apply and lasts a good 4-6 hours on my waterline. It has tiny gold flecks in it, but the gold doesn't overpower the brown and looks quite subtle.

MAC Eye Kohl (Teddy)

I love this colour, it is a warm brown with gold shimmer running through it. Like all MAC pencils, it doesn't tug at the skin, very soft to apply and doesn't move around on the waterline. I can't wear this on my waterline because it appears a more reddy brown, which kinda makes me look ill! I still like using this on my upper and lower lash line though.

Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes (2L)

This eye pencil is great if you live in a hot, humid climate, as it is pretty much smudge proof and waterproof. It is a deep bronzy brown shade and applies like a dream. I find this is great to wear on the upper lash line or to use as a waterproof base for eyeshadow, however it barely shows on my waterline, so i tend to use this on my lower lash line.

  2. I love brown eyeliner, it enhances brown eyes. I usually use a dark brown eye shadow (from benefit browzings or bodyshop brow palette) just bought soap and glorys eyeliner set and hope their brown eyeliner is their black smoulder one (waterproof and smudgeproof and around £5 ) Love the shade of the Pixi copper glow- putting it on my shopping list!

  3. I've never ventured into using chocolate coloured eyeliner, but your recommendations always come highly regarded by me, so I think I will have to give them a try!
