Make Up For Ever sells a double-ended lip and eye pencil that includes two light-toned beiges, called the Make Up For Ever Concealer Pencil (Crayon Anti-Cernes/ Eye and Lip Liner Concealer)($18). I was delighted to find this–my old Benefit had been discontinued and although MAC’s Chromographic pencils seemed promising, I wanted to get something that was easily available to me. I picked up Make Up For Ever’s at my local Sephora, and I see that it is carried online.
This pencil can be used to blank out pigmentation in lips or in the inner rim of the eye, making this dual-ended pencil appropriate for doing double-duty. This is especially useful during allergy season or whenever my eyes are irritated, because it gives an eye-brightening effect to the inner rim. Although sometimes white pencils can be use for the same purpose, I find beige ones much more natural-looking.
Here is quick look at each end of the Make Up For Ever offering:
Deeper color end:
Sephora only sells this pencil in a shade marked “Light” and I am not sure whether Make Up For Ever makes this pencil in deeper colors. What I did find was that the two colors can be mixed in case you need a shade inbetween the two.
The lasting power of this is excellent–my skin is normal to dry and the color lasts well on the waterline. They do not irritate my contact lenses either. I’m happy to have found a product that seems quite versatile.
