Unsung Hero – No7 Metallic Eyes Pencil in Green

29 Mar

While it’s always fun to shout about the latest products on the beauty stands, I’m starting to feel a bit sorry for the old reliables in my make up bag . You know the ones – they aren’t revolutionary, fancily packaged or pushed by some huge marketing campaign, but they do a damn good job and form the basis of most of your day-to-day make up.

Much like that poor admin lady in your office who keeps things running like clockwork but doesn’t get much recognition, I’ve decided these products deserve a little unsung hero award to keep them happy (realise I’m attributing feelings to inanimate objects here but I was one of those kids who insisted that all my teddies had their heads above the duvet covers “so they could breathe”, so please bear with…)


The first product I’d like to show some blog love to is No7 Metallic Eye Pencil in Green. I’m always looking at bold, colourful eyeliner in magazines and thinking how awesome it looks, but unfortunately when translated to the face of a mere mortal bright blues, purples and greens can end up a bit…Crayola. However, this metallic hue  is just the right blend of unusual and wearable, fun and sophisticated. To give it a more elegant edge, I first apply black liquid liner and then add a slightly smudged streak of green underneath…tres chic, non?

One thing I love about this pencil is the fact it’s lovely and soft, so plenty of colour comes off without you having to jab yourself in the eye too hard.It also lasts for aaaages, and doesn’t slide at all during the day.

There’s also a navy version of this pencil which I’ve been perving on for a while…might have to be my next purchase.

£6.50, buy here.
