I really like the makeup brand By Terry, their products are relatively expensive but everything I have tested is very good and has a high quality!
That's why I was extra curious when I would now test their black powder shawl "By Terry Eye Powder Kajal”Which just as it sounds is a eyeliner that is made of fine powder instead of being a solid cake like regular eyeliner pencils. However, I was not as pleasantly surprised by this as their other products.
This is how it is described:
“Do not underestimate the power of this elegant little bottle. Terry de Gunzburg has taken advantage of an old beauty secret from the East and has through the latest technological breakthroughs managed to update and adapt it to today's needs for agility, simplicity and efficiency.
Eye Powder-Kajal makes it easy to fix the graphic shape or the smoky eyes.
The weightless mineral powder and the flexible applicator ensure that it is quick and easy to create the desired look without smudges or precipitation.
In Eye Powder-Kajal hides a simple but sharp, smudge-free eyeliner that also works twice as eye shadow as it is beautifully blurred and frames the eye with the purest, most powerful, black micronized pigment.
The tapered, soft tip in foam material feels like a feather and the grip-friendly, flexible applicator fixes a flawless look in no time. ”
But unfortunately, I would like to like this product because the idea is so heavenly smart, but I can unfortunately not recommend it. I do not understand why this one, which costs a full 295 kronor, would be better than a regular black eye shadow.
It gives a pigment-rich, black result that is easy to fade. This is very good both for people who like a more smoky look around the eyes, but also for people with slightly sagging / wrinkled eyes who have difficulty getting a straight line with other eyeliners.
But it falls quite a lot on the cheeks when you apply it, even if you are careful, and for a nice fade I use at least one of my other makeup brushes. In other words, a small make-up brush + an eye shadow gives the same result and then you have more control over how much is on the brush as well, so that not half ends up on the cheeks!
Any of you who have tested it? :)
