The Body Shop Metallic Eye Definer Pencil: Golden Brown & Moonstone

I would put on makeup everyday, but would skip eyeliner mainly because I have hooded eyelids with thin, almost non-existent crease on my eyes. This would mean bad news for eyeliners, since they'd almost always smudge as soon as I apply it, and turn into eyeshadow by midday. But then, I loved how eyeliners can make my eyes look bigger and more dramatic instantly, so now I'm sharing with you an eyeliner review!

The Body Shop Metallic Eye Definer Pencil in Moonstone & Golden Brown (P550.00)

Rock your party look with this metallic eye pencil. Ultra-soft and easy to blend, it gives a cool metallic twist to a classic flick. Make-up artists love it.

The Body Shop Metallic Eye Definer Pencil in Golden Brown
The Body Shop Metallic Eye Definer Pencil in Moonstone

These two metallic eyeliners are part of The Body Shop's Winter Trend 2012 Collection. There are two other more shades available, which are Copper Brown and Pure Gold.


Moonstone | Golden Brown

I've been looking for an off-white eyeliner for so long. I've tried the "white eyeliner on the waterline" tip before, but it was too frosty and it looked very unnatural on me, especially in photos. The Metallic Eye Definer Pencil in Moonstone is just the perfect shade. It's not too harsh and it brightens my eye area. I especially love using this on the inner corners of my eyes, since it gives better control compared to white eyeshadow placed in that same area. I'm also liking the Golden Brown shade. Most days, I just put in on my upper eyelids, and it gives instant but natural definition to my eyes. For a more dramatic look, I apply Golden Brown on my upper lids, and lightly on my lower waterline.

Both the Metallic Eye Definer Pencils go on so smoothly on my eyes, compared to the Eye Definer Pencil in Rich Brown (from my 4-Step Smoky Eyes Palette in Golden Brown) which feels hard and drags on my lids. The Metallic Eye Definer Pencils are water-resistant, but not waterproof. They come in creamy pencils, so it still has the tendency to smudge after a few hours of wear.

When worn:

Golden Brown looks very natural and is not as harsh as black. Golden Brown defines my eyes and makes my them look bigger, while Moonstone brightens up the inner corners of my eyes.

Since these are limited edition, I'd consider repurchasing Moonstone as backup, but I wouldn't buy Golden Brown again, since the shade is more common, and I could find a longer-lasting brown eye pencil.
