REVIEW & EOTD: Eye of Horus Goddess Pencils (Part 2)...

Surprise surprise - my collection of Eye Of Horus Goddess Pencils has expanded, although after my last order, I'm pretty much set with all the ones I REALLY want. I can't praise these eye crayons enough, they're everything I want in an eye liner - stunning colours, natural ingredients, waterproof, smudgeproof, they glide on like silk, last well on the waterline, and don't irritate the delicate tissue. There are seven in my personal set (first three swatched here), and for once I can't pick a favourite because they are all SO good ...
You can see the density and intensity of the pigment in the swatches below - Teal Malachite has a magnificent shimmer (see my EOTD below), Scarab Sapphire is matte, Bronze Amulet has a slight sheen, and Smokey Black is also matte...


They all take a little while to set, so you have time to smudge them with the sponge on the other end of the pencil. But...as I always seem to be in a rush, the hoods above my eyes pick up some of the product before it's dry - so when I use them on the upper lid, I always pat a little matching shadow over the top to set them quickly. For this look, I added a smidgin of Urban Decay Peace, and smoked the outside with Zero. I used the Teal Malachite both on the waterline, and along my lower lashline - the sheen of this particular pencil is magnificent, it's just plain gorgeous!


You can bet that most of my future EOTDs will feature all of these liners one way or another 


To take advantage of the free shipping (> $50), last time I added this stunning gold metal plated pendant to my order for $10 - it's excellent quality, the chain is adjustable to any length, and being the crazy old Egypt fanatic that I am, I'll be adding the Ankh one to my collection shortly ha ha ♥ 

I'm really quite impressed with this company - all my orders have arrived beautifully packaged within 48 hours, and they don't test on animals. Their products are also available from various retailers - there's a list of stockists on their website here. If you decide to buy any of these pencils, I highly recommend purchasing their sharpener too - honestly it's the best one I've ever come across, sharpens cleanly, and not once has it mangled the inner pigment.

Take care of you,

  4. Love this look Kats! I'm after the Teal Malachite next, along with the charcoal, nude and brown liners. Just hoping I've got the courage to don the teal shade instead of admiring its beauty....I'd love to see them do the gold & copper liquid liners in pencil form too.

    I tried one of your tricks recently (using eyeliner as a base/"primer" so to speak) using Bronze Amulet & I'm pleased to report it worked! My eyeshadow stayed in place all night & barely seemed to fade, which was/is great since my eyelids are oily (sadly) & I don't own a proper eye primer yet....so thanks for passing that tip on to the rest of us!

    1. Right with you there Shell, and 200% supportive of you acquiring theh Teal Malachite, AND using it! And I can't thank you enough for letting me know of your success with using the liner as a base - you have no idea what a thrill it is for me to find out that something I do works for someone else as well ♥♥♥
