Beauty Review: Etude House Proof10 Jewelry Eye Pencil

From my earlier post about my Etude House haul, I mentioned I bought the Proof10 Jewelry Eye Pencil. It comes in silver, gold, aqua, and black. I bought the gold and tried it a few times already.

The pencil is very slim, which is nice since it can fit anywhere and you can even tuck it away in a small purse. It's also a twist-up, which I prefer. Also I've been looking for thin sparkly pencils since most of the sparkle pencils I own are thick.

I applied this on my lower lash line for a bit of sparkle. First of all, the pencil is quite glittery. Definitely better for night time looks or else only use a very thin line for day time sparkle. Also, I was expecting the pencil to be much softer. When applying, I noticed it was hard to apply and it became flaky. I had to use a q-tip to smooth out the line and remove the flakes.

The color is nice, although nothing too special. Just your basic sparkly gold. Although I think the aqua sparkle would be interesting. I wish they had a purple sparkle as well.

Rating: 2/5
The color and amount of glitter is great adding a pop to a night time look. I also like that this pencil is slim so you can draw thin lines, but the flaky application totally turned me off. I really wanted to love this product, but it's surprisingly difficult to apply. Maybe the glitter is too clumpy?

I actually wrote this review a few weeks ago and haven't used the product since then. I'm going to give it one more try and see if I can find a way for it to work better. Will update you guys if there's anything different! I will also post a swatch asap.
