Review: Etude House Play 101 Pencil #1 Black

:iconcutehiplz:Today I wanna review Etude House Play 101 Pencil #01 Black. I need pencil eyeliner, so I chose to try Play 101 Pencil.  Many people must already known this multifunction pencil from Etude House. It available 50 colors with different texture ( matte , glossy, shimmery, glittery and creamy).  This product can be used for eyes, lips or cheeks. I choose pencil no #1 Black with creamy texture, suitable for eyeliner.  Why I need pencil liner is sometimes I want to look natural by applied eyeliner only on waterline.

Ok now lets review this pencil.

image Packaging. image

It comes with box, the design is classy enough. Which is good packaging , though it only pencil product but it also need a box to protect it. Beside, it doesn't make it looks cheap. The information and ingredient of the product are written on the box.

"This is a gel-type pencil that comes with vivid colors and various textures for easy and fun makeup play "
  The pencil is made from plastic, just like the Etude Drawing Eyebrow but a little bit glossy. The bottom cap's color shows the color of the product. Mine is black so the bottom cap color is black.

Because it is a pencil , so it need to be sharpen. But don't worry it also comes with sharpener on the bottom of the pencil.

The color is pretty black. It has creamy texture and suitable for eyeliner. It’s easy to dry when applying on my eyelids. So the result is uneven, or maybe I just can’t use this pencil haha.  It doesn't glide smoothly when applying on my eyes.

The pencil is waterproof and smudge-proof, need eye remover to erase the eyeliner.  Because it's waterproof so the staying power is good enough.

 It looks uneven when applying on my eyelids. Need to apply more than a layer to get the color that I want, but the more layer I apllied it will make the liner bold.  It doesn't look natural at all like what I want.
 Try to create ulzzang look with this product. haha Dont forget the gradient lips and straight eyebrows. Tadaaa. Failed XD

I didn't say that this is not a good product. I just feel that I expect too much to this product. But actually this is a good product also, waterproof, smudge-proof and has good staying power.  It's worth to try product to be honest, affordable price and good color payoff.
