Liz Earle eye pencil - blacker than a goth's coal scuttle

Liz Earle's new makeup range is awash with natural, neutral tones that subtly enhance the face and its various features - which is pretty much as we'd expected. But of the items I've tried from the range, the eye pencil is the one I've really been impressed with. It's surprisingly far from neutral and subtle. In fact, it's really, really inky black.

It's not the usual gel waterproof finish I go for (UD 24/7, Gosh Velvet Touch, et cetera), rather it's an old-school kohl style eyeliner that will smudge during wear - and not necessarily in a bad way. But it glides on as smoothly as any gel liner I've tried, and is perfectly inky black from the first touch.

I'm really impressed with this pencil. I'd love it more if it were a gel liner, but given that this is Liz Earle, high-tech products were never going to be the emphasis. It offers gentle, smooth application and maximum pigment. If you love a bit of black kohl on your waterline, do check this out.

Liz Earle eye pencil, £11 for 1g from Liz Earle online. Brownie points to Liz for featuring a model on her website who has visible eye wrinkles and hasn't been photoshopped into oblivion.
