[Review] Etude House Proof 10 Auto Pencil BK801

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Hello, lovelies! I was allowed to choose anything I want from my lovely sponsor, W2Beauty.com, so I decided to stack up on some eyeliners that I've been curious about. I got myself the Etude House Proof 10 Auto Pencil, Oh~m'Eye Line and Drawing Show Brush Liner. I will review all 3 of them in separate posts.

Proof 10 Auto Pencil
"Proof 10's water-proof eye pencil supplies clean, intense definition for a long lasting, perfect 10 smoky eye look. Comes with sharpener for fine line application."

Packaging & Design
This is an Automatic pencil liner just like any other eyeliner of its kind. The thing that is special about this one is that it includes a built in sharpener at the bottom end of the pencil which is very neat.

Color & Intensity 
The color is quite weak at the first stroke, but It's buildable. The intensity of the black is quite nice once you give it a few strokes, but It's not as intense as I would want an eyeliner to be. I personally don't want to go over my eyeliner several times to achieve a decent color intensity.

Texture
The texture is surprisingly creamy and smooth for being a pencil liner. I find most pencil liners very hard to apply due to the dry consistency, but this one goes on very smoothly. But due to its softness it actually breaks quite easily unless you are careful and only "roll out" a small part when using it.

Precision 
The precision is very nice since you can create quite sharp and clean lines if you sharpen it with the included sharpener. This is great since it allows you to fill in even the smallest spaces when you tightline your lashline or just want to create a very subtle eyeliner for a natural look. However, I somehow feel that you will lose a lot of product of you have to keep sharpening it all the time.

Lastability 
This liner is very easy to smudge out, but it doesn't budge a single bit when coming in contact with water. It stays in place when I wear it throughout the day, but despite that, once I start to remove my eye makeup it comes off very easily. I really like it when a makeup product lasts when wearing it but comes off easily when I remove my makeup at the end of the day. It's definitely a 100% percent waterproof, but if you accidentally come in contact with it by, for example, curling your eyelashes or rubbing your eyes, it will come right off.
 
Overall
I'm personally not a big fan of smoky eyes and I prefer to use a gel liner when I tightline my lashline, but I figured that this will be great for me to use underneath another eyeliner to make it last longer. I think this Eyeliner is more suited for those who actually want to achieve natural or smoky eye makeup looks since the color isn't very intense unless you really build it up and it's easy to smudge out. What I really liked the most about it was that it's so smooth and easy to apply and the built-in sharpener. It's really a great eyeliner and I will definitely keep using it.
