Name: True Eyes
From Pupa’s website:
The ideal complement to mascara and eye shadow, True Eyes emphasises your gaze and gives it extra depth. Suitable for professional use; provides a clear, precise line.
What I liked:
– intense black color
– creamy texture
– glides on easily, no tugging
– longlasting, no smudging
What I didn’t like:
– doesn’t last long on the waterline
As much as I like trying new products from different brands all the time, when it comes to buying a good black eyeliner for daily use, I very rarely stray from Pupa. One one of my favourites is called True Eyes and is available in only one shade: 01, an intense and true black that defines the eyes beautifully.
The tip of the pencil is quite soft and creamy, allowing it to leave a smooth and precise line without pulling nor tugging. You can easily create both thin and thick lines with it and because it has excellent color payoff, one layer is all you need. Overall, it’s quick and easy to use for makeup experts and novices alike.
In addition, the pencil stays put on my lids without smudging nor fading for the whole day. Granted, my lids aren’t very oily. If yours are, you might need a primer to make it last longer. But personally, I find its staying power really good and have never had problems with panda eyes whenever I wear this.
Although Pupa doesn’t mention whether this pencil can be used on the waterline or not, I still like to apply it there from time to time. I find the pencil to be gentle and it doesn’t irritate my eyes, but like most eyeliners, it lasts very little on the waterline, forcing me to reapply several times throughout the day. I’m not too fussed about this as I rarely use black on the waterline as it makes my small eyes look smaller, and it does an excellent job on the lid, but it’s something to consider if you’re looking for a pencil that lasts long on the inner rims too.
