Catrice Made To Stay Inside Eye Highlighter Pen

1/05/2015



Depending on where you're based, availability of waterline highlighters can vary from extremely poor to rather satisfying. I cannot shake off the impression that, overall, we don't have many waterline highlighters on the market - especially within the affordable range. European readers will be familiar with the following waterline pen which could easily be the most popular one (at least within Balkan borders). Catrice Made To Stay Inside Eye Highlighter Pen  is something I had my eye on for a very long time but I've failed to track it down. About a week prior to New Year's Eve I suddenly noticed a handful of these sitting on a shelf in one of my local drugstores. Needles to say that I've snapped it up with such delight! After testing it in various occasions, I reckon I'm ready to review this bad boy. We're dealing with yet another optical illusion in the realms of the beauty world - in the same way a black pencil applied inside of waterline would visually make your eyes smaller, white or skin-colored nude pencils will make the eye appear visually larger, more wide-open. I do own a white pencil which I sometimes use on my waterline but I think it looks far better on photos than in real life. Crisp white can seem to be too stark and unnatural while a beige colored pencil has a similar effect but a smidge toned down.

Ovisno o tome gdje se nalazite, dostupnost olovki za posvjetljavanje waterline-a (citaj: unutarnji dio donjeg ocnog kapka) moze varirati od izuzetno lose do prilicno zadovoljavajuce. Ipak, ne mogu da se otmem utisku kako je uopsteno ponuda ovakvih olovaka barem na nasem trzistu slaba. Citateljice iz regiona a vjerujem i cijele Evrope su sigurno upoznate sa olovkom koju cu danas da recenziram. Moguce cak da je i najpopularnija olovka ovog tipa u okviru balkanskih granica. Catrice Made To Stay Inside Eye Highlighter Pen je olovka koju sam namjeravala isprobati vec duze vrijeme no nekako mi je bjezala iz vidokruga, koliko god se trudila da je pronadjem. Otprilike sedmicu dana pred kraj prosle godine sam primjetila par ovih olovcica kako stoje na polici u cm-u. Naravno da sam sebi ugrabila jedan primjerak i to sam ucinila sa velikim zadovoljstvom! Nakon prilicno intenzivnog testiranja, osjecam da je vrijeme recenzije stiglo. Ovdje se radi o jos jednom primjeru vizuelne/opticke varke u okvirima beauty svijeta. Bas kako npr.crna olovka unutar waterline-a cini oci vizuelno manjim, tako ce i bijela ili olovka boje koze uciniti da oci djeluju vizuelno vece, otvorenije i pogled bistrijim. Posjedujem bijelu olovku koju povremeno koristim no priznajem da izgleda ljepse na fotografijama nego sto je u stvarnosti. Cisto bijela boja moze djelovati pomalo strogo dok olovka boje koze ipak pruza prirodniji efekat.


I believe that the Catrice Made To Stay Inside Eye Highlighter Pen comes in a universal shade called In The Mood For Nude (010). This could be a truly universal shade but my personal take would be that even a lighter shade would work better. In The Mood For Nude is a light peachy nude shade and it does its job very well. Texture is medium thick and medium creamy. Personally, I'd be even more impressed if it was even creamier but that would take down the longevity. With this 'golden middle' texture, this highlighter pen stays put in the waterline for at least 4h and then I start to notice light fading coming from the corners. Have in mind that my eyes are very sensitive and watery. I think the staying power is rather decent but not perfect - same goes with the coloring. The peachy nude shade is lovely and really opens up the eye, making eyes generally brighter and entire eye make-up more 'done'. However, I think lighter skin tones would benefit from an even lighter shade which would be less peachy and more pale beige. I believe that would provide an even more natural effect. That being said, I do enjoy using this highlighter pen and it's become a part of my everyday make-up routine. I also think it's a nice touch to include the handy sharpener in the bottom of the pencil. I still want to try the Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Kajal and the NYX Wonder Pencil which seem to be very similar and compare them all. Care to share your experience on the subject?

Cini mi se da Catrice Made To Stay Inside Eye Highlighter Pen olovka (cca 7KM) dolazi u jednoj nijansi pod nazivom In The Mood For Nude (010). Ovdje bi se cak moglo raditi o univerzalnoj nijansi ali ipak mislim da bi nesto svjetlija nijansa mozda bila jos bolji te istinski univerzalan izbor. In The Mood For Nude je njezna breskvasto-nude nijansa koja stvarno radi dobar posao. Tekstura je srednje cvrstoce i prosjecno je kremasta. Mozda bih bila cak i vise impresionirana ukoliko bi bila kremastija ali sam svjesna da bi to skratilo njenu trajnost. Sa konzistencijom i teksturom 'u zlatnoj sredini' ova olovka na mom waterline-u traje cca 4h no imajte na umu da su moje oci jako osjetljive i cesto suze (sto bi znacilo da ako vase oci nisu tako osjetljive, trajnost bi u vasem slucaju bila jos bolja). Nakon 4h nosenja pocinjem primjecivati blijedjenje u kutovima ociju. Breskvasta nude boja lijepo 'otvori' oci, osvjezi pogled i cjelokupna sminka ociju djeluje uredjenije sa njom nego bez nje. Mislim da bi osobe svjetlijeg tena svakako vise preferirale svjetliju nijansu koja bi bila manje breskvasta a vise blijedo bez sto bi zasigurno pruzilo jos prirodniji efekat. I pored ovih malih zamjerki ovu olovku koristim svaki dan od kupovine i postala je dijelom moje svakodnevne make-up rutine. Takodjer mislim da je jako lijep detalj sto je u dnu olovke ukljuceno i mini siljalo koje je dosta zgodno i prakticno. Jos uvijek zelim isprobati Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Kajal i NYX Wonder Pencil koje mi se cine slicne Catrice olovci te bi ih rado usporedila. Da li ste imale iskustva sa ovim olovkama? Ako da, rado bih cula vase misljenje.
