Make Up For Ever #1K Khol Pencil

Make Up For Ever #1K Khol Pencil ($17.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “deep black.”  It’s a rich black with a creamy finish; no real sheen or shine, so it appears mostly matte once applied.  This liner from the brand is supposed to be “exceptionally smooth” and work well for both the lash line and lower water line. According to Sephora, it is a blend of vegetable lipids, vitamin E, mango seed oil, hydrogenated cottonseed oil, and jojoba oil.  When I tried to figure out just how long this was supposed to wear, Make Up For Ever actually said for long-lasting results to dust a loose powder or use their makeup seal over it.

MAC Duck Powerpoint Eye Pencil

MAC Duck Powerpoint Eye Pencil ($15.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “soft grey brown.” It doesn’t read gray at all to me; it’s more of a warm-toned, medium-dark brown with hints of red in the base. It has no shimmer, so the finish tends to look more matte on the lash line. Chanel Brun-Teak is similar but darker. MAC Brownborder is also similar and only slightly darker.

Dior Garden Pastels Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Garden Pastels Eyeshadow Palette ($59.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as “pale pink, buttercup yellow, and luminous greens.” It’s new and limited edition just in time for spring. It’s slightly lighter compared to the usual Dior eyeshadow palette, which has 0.21 oz., while this palette only has 0.16 oz. I suspect it is due to the consistency difference somehow, since it doesn’t seem less full or smaller compared to other Dior eyeshadow palettes.
