Hey makeup addicts. Hope you are all in the pink of health. I am back with a review for you all and this time, not a lipstick. It is an eyebrow pencil called Spiked.
MAC Eyebrows Crayon Spiked Review, Swatch, EOTD
Self-propelling, self-sharpening, brow defining. Confidently adds what you need: shape, colour, density in one streamlined tool. Like a pen, creates its own just-right point. Provides definition, shape, deepens/fills in colour. Creates striking arches.Easy to tote around. No sharpener needed.
Price: Rs. 1200.
Sleek twist up pencil. The issue is once u take the product out, it does not go back inside like other retractable pencils. Be careful when you twist else you will end up wasting it.
Spiked is a dark blackish brown. It is the darkest I could find in MAC. Stud and Spiked looked similar. I might try Stud once am done with this. I have very dark black eyebrows and Spiked is not an exact match. However, using a pitch black pencil would make your brows look too harsh and overdone so brownish black shade works for most of the Indian skintones.
It is not so creamy as creamy products tend to melt and fade soon on hot days. This crayon has the perfect stiff consistency. It goes on smooth and gives you time to fill the brows.
I would say it is highly water resistant. It would not budge even if you sweat or pour water over it. Unless you wipe with a wet wipe or a makeup removal wipe, it stays put the entire day.
You can see from the below picture that it fills the brows yet looks natural. Unless you have very black brows like mine, you are sure to love it. You can notice that in the inner corners it does look a bit brown but otherwise, looks natural.
MAC Eyebrows Crayon Spiked is a blackish brown eyebrow pencil in an easy peasy twist up form, easy to use, great texture and smudge proof as well. The quantity is very less for the price.
