From The Vault: Lavera Soft Eyeliner Pencil

From the vault
This months rummage through the vault brings to light a post from early 2013…

Lavera Trend Organic Soft Eyeliner

One pencil I do love and is a staple in both my pro kit and my own bulging make-up bag, is this eyeliner from Lavera.

The combination of waxes, oils and moisture rich Shea butter make for a pencil that is soft, without drag and comfortable to apply – even to the more delicate and sensitive areas of the eye such as the waterlines. It blends easily and beautifully and, being double ended; with the pencil at one and a handy sponge blender at the other – leaving you with no reason not to rock a smudged eyeliner from time to time!

I find it doesn’t tend to move to much once it has had a chance to sit on the skin and once applied, the lines last reasonably well, although you may find that as with many other eyeliners, the lower waterline needs topping up intermittently. On the skin it is pretty tolerant to water and I have found it stands up well on High Definition – looking neither too hard or distracting.

Trend Eyeliner is available in three colours; a lovely soft, flattering Grey, Brown – which lends a warm sepia tone on blending and a soft, muted Black.  Their only real limitation is the range of shades, I would love to see a blue and perhaps a plum toned pencil added to the collection. Maybe a white too…

Lavera Soft eyeliner pencils have evolved. The three sponge ended pencils have been replaced by six sponge-free ones! The original shades have been joined by a blue, a green and a golden brown (that’s one box ticked). I do have one of the blue pencils and the formulation seems very similar.

I still have the original (sponge-ended) pencils in my kit (although they have been joined by the likes of Benecos et al.) and am very happy with them. Obviously as they gradually shrink to become an un-holdable length, I will replace them (assuming the formulation has not changed) with these new incarnations.

I can’t wait to try the rest of the new pencils out!

Priced at £9.50 they are still great value for money and last forever!

  • […] Eyeliner is a great way to add interest to the eyes whilst keeping things minimal however liquid liners can a pain to keep on top of so swap out and opt for a Kohl Pencil instead; not only does it give more versatility when it come to how you wear it but it means you can take a selection of shades whilst taking up very little space in your bag – a pencil liner still looks great smudged and dishevelled at the end of the night too! I love the Inika Organic Eyeliners (available in 8 shades), Benecos Natural Kajal (9 shades) and the Soft Pencil from Lavera. […]ReplyCancel
