BENEFIT Bad Gal Smoldering Black Liner Pencil

Posted on: July 4, 2011

Now this specific product was purchased by me, BY ACCIDENT. A very careless-impulsive accident might I add.  I was actually buying a bottle of Moon Beam and a couple of Benefit products when this had happened. I was only doing my shopping online so I was only able to “inspect” the items through the photos posted on the Benefit Website. And so I had a couple of items on the list already when I decided to ‘checkout’ and then a small photo of this Bag Gal Liner appeared on the sidebar of the site. And then pooof! the rest is history. (Thanks to my good friend for purchasing and shipping those Benefit products to me by the way. You know who you are babe!) 😀

BAD Gal Smoldering Black Eye Liner

Anyway, so back to the primary purpose of blogging… I have never thought of using a dry pencil as a liner since I’ve had bad experiences with smudging aka “the raccoon” look. I have always used the liquid kind, but for the sake of not wasting a couple of bucks I had to try it on atleast.

I was surprised to not have been disappointed. It’s not a waterproof liner but it did  stay on just right. The soft-crayon-like formula works well for creating a smooth thick or thin line. It worked well on “tight-lining” too. (Well atleast for me) Its color is sooooo BLACK, (DARK and INTENSE) that it did justice on its name, “Bad Gal”. I use this one whenever I feel like making my look stronger with feline eyes. Its a great liner for heavy smokey eye shadow look as well.

I'll post a swatch next time =) (sorry shoo tamad)

The Bad Gal Liner comes in a pretty pink and black bulky silky-matte-like box. The pencil itself is thick so a jumbo sharpener is a must. It’s got a black cap for hygienic purposes. The thing about this eyeliner pencil is that, with it being so thick, you have to use an eyeliner brush (I use an angled eyeliner brush) to apply it on since you cannot really rely on the thick pencil. Putting it on directly will result to a tad thick crooked line! Although you can use it as a regular liner when freshly sharpened. Some people don’t use a brush when applying this, so I guess it will always depend on how it works for you.

So one Bad Gal Smoldering Black Eye Liner Pencil costs $20.00 (or Php 880.00) I got mine from SF,California via my friend 😀 There was actually a sale when I got this one so I got it on a lower price, but considering the normal prices, I think this one’s a steal for such quality.

 

This black liner is definitely a staple for me!

But of course Givenchy will still own the throne but that’s a another story(blog!:p)

From your Benefit pal!
