If you’re a regular visitor around these parts, or one of my lovely Insta followers, you might aware of my love affair with the Eye of Horus mascara. As much as I could ramble on about that particular gem forever, today I’m putting the spotlight on EOH’s latest release, the Scarab Sapphire Goddess Pencil*.
I do tend to get stuck in a black-eyeliner-only rut on a regular basis, but sometimes one needs to break free of the confines of 1000 shades of black. I’ve tippled with extremely unflattering shades of blue liner/shadow in the past, but this beautiful rich indigo comes completely regret-free.
If you are already familiar with EOH’s goddess eye pencils, you’ll be aware they are a dream to use – the texture is creamy, the product glides on with ease, the pigmentation is incredible, and once set, it does. not. budge. And if you weren’t aware of all that, then consider yourself now well advised. But wait, there’s more! To get even more bang for your buck, you can double these up as an eyeshadow, by blending and smudging out the product into a soft smoky eye.
If your eyes are of the sensitive variety, you will be pretty pleased to know that all the Goddess pencils (and everything in the EOH range) are formulated with you in mind, so you can wield these prodz with the confidence that no puffy eyes situations will be occurring.
What I loved: The shade of this pencil is just gawjus, and makes a welcome change from my standard black. The product really is of the “lasts all day and all night” variety. I had to bring out the big guns (coconut oil) to remove it. The smudger on the other end of the pencil is a handy bonus.
What I didn’t: The only thing I would advise is to keep a sharpener on hand for when you want to get a more precise look while doing your flick or lining in the tear duct, as the nub tends to soften quite quickly.
You can pick up a Scarab Sapphire pencil here, for $30 AUD.
