Essence waterproof Gel eye pencils - 01 Black Blaze & 07 Cloudy White

June 11, 2016


I don't have some long introductions today on two "ordinary" eye pencils, so without further ado, here are Essence waterproof Gel eye pencils in two shades - 01 Black Blaze and 07 Cloudy White. One is black, the other is white, as the name suggests. I was drawn to them because I really like the twist up pencils, not so much the ones you have to sharpen and waste product, and also to the fact that Essence says they are waterproof. Until now, I never came across the eye pencil that stayed on my waterline longer than an hour so I already gave up and haven't tried any new eye pencils for a while. Also, I don't really like the idea of putting gel eyeliner in my waterline. If you did try that, let me know in the comments that nothing bad happened to you, so I might give it a go. :)

Danas nemam ideja za duge priče, odnosno što napisati kao uvod za dvije "obične" olovke za oči, pa idemo odmah na posao. Pisat ću o vodootpornim Essence Gel eye pencils i to u dvije nijanse - 01 Black Blaze i 07 Cloudy White. Jedna je crna, druga bijela, kako im i imena sugeriraju. Privukle su me jer volim olovke na "odvrtanje" više nego one koje moraš šiljiti i pri tome nepotrebno bacaš proizvod, i to što Essence tvrdi da su vodootporne. Dosada ni jedna olovka koju sam isprobala nije ostala na waterlineu duže od sat vremena, pa sam i odustala od traženja neke koja je dugotrajnija, a evo iskreno, ne sviđa mi se pomisao nanošenja tuša u gelu na waterline. Ako si isprobala, napiši mi dolje u komentarima da ti se ništa loše nije dogodilo, pa da skupim hrabrosti. :)

Essence says that these are automatic twist pencils - like gel eyeliner, waterproof, smudgeproof and long lasting. So I put them on the test.

Essence također kaže kako su ovo olovke tipa gel eyelinera, vodootporne, neće se razmrljati i dugotrajne su. Naravno, testirala sam sve od navedenog.

Both shades are very pigmented, even the white one and, to get the pigmentation and opacity in the photo below, I didn't have to put much pressure on them and go over and over to get them to show on the skin.

I wouldn't say that they are like gels, rather that they are creamy and they glide on the skin. Also, they do dry and set fairly quickly. You can't really blend them and use them as eyeshadow base, if you do want to do that, you have to work quickly and blend within seconds. But, this is a good sign that they are "smudgeproof" like Essence claims them to be.
________________________________________________________________________________

Obje nijase su jako pigmentirane, čak i bijela i da bih dobila swatcheve kao na donjj slici, nisam trebala jako pritiskati olovku niti prelaziti nekoliko puta da bi se vidjela prava nijansa.

Ne bih rekla da im je konzistencija kao gel, nego su kremaste, klize po koži i jako se brzo suše i setaju. S ovim olovkama nema blendanja i korištenja kao baze za sjenila, odnosno, ako to želiš, moraš raditi jako brzo i blendati u nekoliko sekundi. Ali, ovo je dobar znak za ono "smudgeproof".

Now for testing them - first I held my hand under warm running water for about half a minute and I didn't wipe or smudge anything. As you can see, they didn't budge.
________________________________________________________________________________

E a sad testiranje svega navedenog. Prvo sam ih testirala držeći ruku otprilike pola minute pod mlazom tople vode, bez brisanja, i kao što vidiš, nisu se ni pomaknule s ruke.

After that I rubbed the swatches with my fingers and look at that, the situation is the same. ________________________________________________________________________________

Nakon toga sam pokušala protrljati malo swatcheve i, začudo, situacija je ista.

Then I tried to wipe the swatches with something rougher - with towel. As you can see, they started so smudge.
________________________________________________________________________________

Onda sam krenula obrisati ruku nečim grubljim - ručnikom. Kao što vidiš, počeli su se brisati.

The one thing I noticed is they don't really smudge, but they just crumble and fall off.
________________________________________________________________________________

Ono što sam primijetila je da se ustvari ne razmrljaju, već da otpadaju u grudicama.

They didn't leave any stain, they just crumbled up and were gone. I expected them not to be 100% smudgeproof, but they are waterproof and they held on really good. Even though they did start to come off after rubbing with towel, I don't think you will ever rub your eyes with that.
I do think that these are really good eye pencils and the best ones I tried so far.

Nisu ostavile nikakve mrlje za sobom, nego su jednostavno otpale u komadićima. Bilo je za očekivati da nisu skroz otporne na mrljanje, ali jesu vodootporne i mislim da su se dobro držale. Ipak, počele su se skidati tek nakon trljanja ručnikom, a ne vjerujem da ćeš ikada oči trljati ručnikom.
Unatoč tome, mislim da su ovo odlične olovke za oči i najbolje koje sam dosad probala, barem po trajnosti.

P.s. što se tiče trajnosti, netko mi je u komentarima spomenuo da nisam napisala koliko dugo zaista traju, pa evo. Uzevši u obzir da rijetko kad nosim šminku dulje od 6-8 sati, toliko su mi i trajale na očima, odnosno dok ih nisam skinula sama. 


Možeš ih pronaći na svim Essence prodajnim mjestima, a cijena im je oko 21,00kn za 0,57g.

  1. Ove olovke nisam ni zamijetila na stalcima :O Baš me oduševilo kada sam vidjela šta su sve preživjele :) Pretpostavljam da su tako trajne i na očima? Jedino me malo razočaralo što kažeš da bijela nije dobra za podlogu. Čim sam vidjela swatch pomislila sam da bi bila odlična ispod nekog plavog sjenila, ali šteta ako se neda blendat preko toga.

    1. Jesu, na waterline-u mi tražu dulje nego ostale koje sam do sada probala. Što se tiče baze, može se blendati sjenilo preko nje, ali ona se sama teško blenda, odnosno, jako se brzo osuši na koži :)

  2. Sve to super, ali nisi napisala najbitnije, a to je koliko su dugotrajne na kapcima i waterline-u kad ga već spominješ...

    1. Ako uzmeš u obzir da šminku rijetko nosim dulje od 6-8 sati, pokazalo se da traju dok ju ne skinem, kako na kapcima, tako i na waterlineu :)
