Jump for the review, swatches, and all that babble!

I’m known for the shimmers darlings. Heck, I got hate threads about me on MUA and my shimmer-holic ways…this is how famous I am. Actually I’m kinda sorta famous inside my own head but aside from that fame is probably quite far away.

But no seriously I really do adore the shimmer, bit too much sometimes.

Technically I haven’t been too into shimmer lately but since it’s the Holidays I’m all about it. Plus I’m also about a good deal or two which is what led me to hauling the Lorac Sparkle Pencil Eye Liners. These remind me of the Tony and Tina Sparkle Pencils I so dearly loved, RIP Tony and Tina.

These are big old chunky eye pencils which you can use to line or define eyes with a playful bit of sparkle and shimmer. Like most shimmer pencils they fall victim to being a pain in the butt to apply. Let me tell you they look very pretty on my eyes after they are applied but it’s the applying that’s such a bother. They have a gritty formula so it’s difficult to have it glide across your eyes, I find that most all pencils that contain glitter or shimmer of any kind are normally like this, heck even MAC Sparkle Pencils are the same. Aside from that minor rant I likey especially with the price being under five bucks and all.

Overall, if you’re looking for a little bit of cheap for some Holiday sparkle I’d grab a few. Particularly if you’re a fan of the Soft Sparkle Liner from MAC or Tony & Tina’s version from yesteryear. They pack plenty of shimmer for a sparkling, festive look! I got three shades gold, pink, and black all for $15, I’m thinking you can’t go wrong.


Available now from Lorac.

    I really like the gold! I’ve tried a couple sparkly golds in the past but they’ve all turned out to be dull…this one looks so glamorous! I’m a sucker for sparkle and shine too, so these are very tempting…but I probably won’t indulge. Not feeling them enough, plus I’m totally obsessed with Urban Decay’s pencils as of the moment.

      Marina can’t blame you UD pencils rock it 😀 Did you get any of the stashes? 😀 I’m always kinda sorta disappointed in golds too..UD used to have sparkle pencils and one was el dorado…LOVED that 😀


      • 12/17/09 5:22 Marina:

        I didn’t end up getting the Super Stash, but I picked up the Hi-Fi set 😀
