Review & Swatches: Elizabeth Arden Smoky Eyes Powder Pencils

Elizabeth Arden Smoky Eyes Powder Pencils

Availability: Elizabeth Arden Online
Price: $16.50 each

I received these 2 Smoky Eyes Powder Pencils in a “Cult Classics” box Elizabeth Arden sent me. The liners are in the colors Espresso and Smoky Black.

Packaging: 9.25/10

These are pencils you sharpen and that have smudging tips on one end.

Quality: 10/10

Espresso is a rich, deep brown and Smoky Black is an intense black.

These eye pencils have a fantastic formula. They are extremely creamy without the pencil itself being too soft. Some eye liners are very creamy but crumble when you press them against the skin; these Smoky Eyes Powder Pencils don’t have that drawback.

The colors are pigmented and glide onto the skin without any tugging or skipping. You can smudge them out with the smudging tip and once the liner sets it lasts all day without traveling or fading.

Ease of Use: 9.8/10

You won’t experience any tugging at the skin or skipping. You will need to sharpen the pencil as you use it up.

Price: 8.8/10

For $16.50, you get 1.1 grams of liner. MAC’s Eye Kohls are $15.00 and contain 1.45 grams but don’t include a smudger.

Final Grade

96.45/100

    I haven’t gotten the hang of using the ones with smudgers; I guess it IS convenient if you use it often. I think I had one from Lancome and one from Prestige or Rimmel…

  2. I love Elizabeth Arden’s liners esp. lip liners. Thanks for the review!
