This is one of my longest pending posts. Yeah, as these eyeliner pencils from Nykaa were launched a long time ago, and I have been using them since then. Nykaa is on a continuous launch spree with all kinds of makeup products. The best part is they make them in an affordable price as well as chemical free. These eyeliner pencils come in an array of colors and are free of paraffin and preservatives. I love colored eyeliner, and thus, I picked the shade “04 Voodoo Grey.”

My Experience with Nykaa GLAMOReyes Eyeliner Pencil 04 Voodoo Grey
Packaging: This eyeliner pencil comes in a sleek, metallic, color-coded body with a black cap and bottom. The prints in silver against the grey packaging make them to stand out. It comes in a sharpenable pencil form. It is quite sturdy and travel friendly. It is housed inside the usual Nykaa outer paperboard carton. All the necessary information, including the ingredients list, is provided.
Texture: This eyeliner pencil has the smoothest and creamiest texture. It glides on effortlessly without any tugging or pulling. It gives a satiny shine finish rather than a gel finish. It gives an opaque color payoff in a single stroke. Its conical tip makes it easier to draw a thin line for a sharply defined look. Its glittery particles give that GLAMOR eyes. However, they are not junky particles and do not hinder in the application nor give that gaudy look.
Shade: This eyeliner pencil comes in 5 stunning colors. 01 Blue Hex is a bright blue, 02 Teal Spell is a perfect teal, 03 Jade Jinx is a jade green, 04 Voodoo Grey is a dark grey, and 05 Azure Charm is a deep blue. This grey color would be perfect for both a simple day look and a smoking hot evening look. This beautiful color gives that subtle break from the usual black eyeliner.
Performance: This eyeliner pencil is intensely pigmented. It is so smooth and glides on like a dream. It feels very soft when applied. It is not smudge proof when freshly applied. It takes a while to set. Thus, this eyeliner pencil can be smudged to create a perfect base for smoky eyes. However, once it sets, it does not smudge or budge. It is completely waterproof and longwearing. It literally stays put on the eyes until you intend to remove it. Although super-creamy, it did not break in the packaging or while applying. As it is a sharpenable pencil, there will be a bit of wastage, but every time there will a fresh conical tip to draw that precise line. I wish a sharpener to be provided as Nykaa suggests using their SharpShooter Cosmetic Sharpener for fabulous results. It contains soft glitter particles, which give that GLAMOR eyes look. I do not advise this eyeliner pencil to be used on the waterline as the glitter particles could be irritating. It does not smear even in the inner corners. Moreover, the color intensity does not reduce at all during the complete wear time, making it truly fade proof. Although it has high-impact color, it does not crease nor stain the crease line. This eyeliner pencil can be easily removed with a cleanser itself, making it ideal for daily wear. It is dermatologically and ophthalmologically tested and is free of paraffins, preservatives, and animal-derived ingredients. Overall, it is an amazing colored eyeliner pencil.
