Brilliant black pencil for sensitive eyes

black pencil for sensitive eyes review

I never thought I would be blogging about a single black eye pencil, but I realized it’s necessary. This pencil from a natural makeup brand does not irritate my sensitive eyes and I’ve used it for years.

It also just has all the features I need from a simple makeup product like this. It’s one of those products I use daily, yet I don’t really pay a lot of attention to. So now it deserves a spotlight!

The best black pencil for sensitive eyes – Alima Pure Natural Definition Pencil, Ink

Alima Pure’s *black pencil in the shade Ink is the perfect black pencil. It really is a deep black and it lasts well.

I use it mainly to line my eyes and tightline between my lashes. If you’re interested to learn how to tightline, I have a tutorial on my Instagram highlights (makeup tips -section) . I’ve never had any problems with it when it comes to longevity.

I rarely use it on my waterline and there, naturally, it doesn’t last that well. But if I do use something on my waterline, it’s this product, because it doesn’t irritate my eyes. That said, if you have sensitive eyes you probably don’t want to use anything on your waterline anyway. I rarely do because my eyes can get watery because of wind, cold, you name it. (Looking at these makeup photos I’m thinking I probably should use black pencil on the waterline more often, though?)

The pencil can be blended for a smokey look thanks to its moisturizing natural oils and waxes. It’s not something that sticks to your eye and doesn’t move at all. It contains jojoba oil, plant based wax and even chamomile extract, so the ingredients really are suitable for sensitive eyes.

It also happens to be cruelty free and vegan.

I feel like there’s only so much I can say about a black pencil like this. It’s just a brilliant product – especially for sensitive eyes. If you have any questions, let me know!

The pencil costs less than 20 euros and you can shop it for example on amazon.

YSL vinyl cream burgundy vibes 409

In this makeup I used the black pencil quite heavily on the eyes, added warm bronze tones and a dark glossy lip. Pretty much all the fall makeup trends in one look, heh. I love that lipstick – it’s such a beautiful color and the consistency is very unique. Glossy, super pigmented and quite long lasting.

Madara City CC-Cream
This CC-cream is bomb. If you read my Makeup Monday posts, you’ll notice that I used that product on every single person. That just goes to show how versatile the product is. It evens out the skin tone and gives a natural glow on itself, or it can be mixed with foundations to sheer them out or make them less matte. It’s also my go-to product as a sunscreen in Fall, Winter and Spring, besides the one below.

Madara Soft Glow Foundation
I’ve named this the best natural foundation. It has great coverage, smooth consistency that’s easy to blend and and it lasts well. It looks beautiful as itself on the skin, but I also like to mix a bit of CC-cream with it to make it a bit more glowy.

Madara Luminous Perfecting Concealer
This concealer is awesome. The creamy texture is easy to blend evenly and it doesn’t emphasize the fine lines around the eyes. It has a lot of pigment. It also reflects light nicely.

I’ve also tried the lip gloss, brow pomade and the cream blush from Madara. These are all very nice and I show you all of them in the video review.

Madara Face SPF 30
This is my favorite sunscreen for my face. I love how natural and glowy it looks – and since it’s a physical sunscreen, it lasts very well on my skin. It’s not white as most physical sunscreens, which makes it awesome. It has some color to it, which blends out perfectly on my skin. I also like to mix this with a matte foundation to make it more glowy and creamy.

I also like Madara’s other *sun products. My favorite for body is the weightless milk SPF 20.

Madara’s Face Masks

Madara is one of my favorite brands also when it comes to face masks. My top three masks from them are Detox, Peel & Smart masks. The masks are quick to use (only 5 mins is enough!) and they are effective. There’s also a moisturizing SOS-mask, if you’re not into purifying masks (AKA your skin is dry).

Madara SOS Hydra Repair Serum
I love this serum. It’s very lightweight and hydrating and it comes in a beautiful packaging. Perfect for those moments when your skin screams SOS. Moisturizing serums are crucial for your skin especially in the colder months. They give you the much needed hydration under your lotion.

Madara moisturizers
I’ve tried Madara’s creams from the Smart and SOS lines. Both were very good and my skin got well moisturized. I’m also gonna try the Deep Moisture line, which has a gel and two creams. The ingredient lists are impressive, so I’m pretty convinced they’re gonna be as good as the ones I’ve already tried.
