Mikyajy Sabaya Line and Shadow Pencil Review
I am no expert in creating different eye looks. And when it comes to smoky eyes, its better if we don’t mention it. Half of the time(OK, most of the time) I end up looking as if I am a heavily depressed maniac in a sadistic, serial killing Hollywood flick! And so no prizes for guessing why I steer clear from smoky eyes. So At the Mikyajy counter last time (read about my stint HERE), I was all ears when the SA told me I can create perfect smoky eyes with this thing. And being a person who gets carried away easily I bought it. Also the fact that it was featured in an edition of Friday of GulfNews under multitasking makeup products certainly helped calm my nerves as I was feeling slightly guilty for spending almost 50 Aed on a single eye pencil. Anyways, today I am reviewing the Mikyajy Sabaya Line and Shadow Pencil.
Product Claim (as per the site):
Create a smoky look for your eyes with intense color that won’t fade.
It’s a dual ended wooden pencil with a smudging sponge at the other end. Both sides have plastic caps. The cap at the sponge end is a transparent one. The sponge is quite soft and blends he eye shadow quite well.
AED 49 for a pencil. It did trigger the chemicals that cause emotions of guilt in my body.
Available in almost all Mikyagy stores throughout UAE.I bought mine from Madinat Zayed, Abu Dhabi.
The ingredients are not mentioned in the site.However I do remember it was mentioned on the plastic seal over the pencil and it was ripped off when I tried to remove it.
My Experience with the Mikyajy Sabaya Line and Shadow Pencil:
My first ever perfect smoky eyes were created thanks to this little wonder.I am glad I bought this. It stays put for about 3 hours after that it kind of starts losing the charm. But that’s OK! May be with an eye primer it would stay more. Can be used on the waterline and for tight lining but I must add it does smudge when used as a liner. Its travel friendly, so instead of carrying your eye shadow box and brushes around, you just need to throw this pencil in your handbag. If only the price was a bit low. I swear I would have started a collection with these pencils.Sigh! I have the number 11 which is brownish shade. In the site the shade number 1 is in the best seller list. I think it’s the black one. And I must admit I had to use all the self control in the world to stop me from buying it. May be next month. Tee hee! (My nervous grin!)
Pros of Mikyajy Sabaya line and Shadow pencil:
• Creating smoking eye look is a breeze with this pencil
• Blends easily
• Stays put for 3-4 hours
• Easily removable using a makeup remover or olive oil
•Easy to sharpen
Cons of Mikyajy Sabaya Line and Shadow Pencil:
• Smudges a little when used as a liner. Not sure whiter this can be con what else can be expected from a product which can be used as an eyeshadow? It has to blend!
I can say it’s a must have for people like me who who cannot create smoky eyes with eye shadows to save their life. For others, it is a pass.
I would give it 3.75/5. Price is certainly an issue.
