Today I have butter LONDON Wink Eye Pencil in Jaded Jack and Wink Mascara in Brown Sugar to show you!
I will admit that I am an eye and lip cosmetic junkie, so when it came to these I gave my opinion based on my preferences.
Wink Eye Pencil in Jaded Jack
What the name means: Unsung British rock hero.
Jaded Jack is a lime green creme eye pencil. While I thought the color was pretty, the pencil itself is softer than I like. I made a line on my upper lid and I couldn’t get a sharp line with it. Then when I went over the line to even it out a bit, it created a drag mark over the original line, and I wasn’t even pressing very hard. I ended up wiping the first attempt off and redoing it in one swipe across with moderate pressure. I got good color, but it wore the tip down a lot. So I already know I will be sharpening this pencil more than others I use. Lasting power is really good though. I actually had to apply some pressure to remove Wink Eye Pencil. It didn’t budge, smear or flake after a full day of wear either.
Wink Mascara In Brown Sugar
What the name means: A fierce blues-rock riff.
Brown Sugar is a chocolate brown creme mascara. I did like this mascara’s color payoff. It coated my lashes well in one swipe, but it clumped together a bit as it dried. Wink Mascara coated my lashes and made them slightly thicker looking, but without any volume or enhancement I normally look for in a mascara. This will still be used, but more for a natural look. It was also incredibly wet. I tried a few tricks, and even kept it unscrewed and opened a few days to thicken the mascara up – but it still was too wet. I’ll be trying a few more things over the next few days. Despite the fact that this won’t be my “go to” mascara. I still want it in Indigo Punk.
Wink Eye Pencil and Mascara Together
You can see what I mean about the mascara clumping a bit in this one. It didn’t look this clumped when I first applied, it happened over the span of about 10 minutes. The mascara takes a little too long to dry for me as well. The other morning I put it on to test it and about 20 minutes after I applied it I sneezed and got lovely mascara marks on my eyelid as well as below my lower lashline from the force of my sneeze. Quite a lovely sight, I must say.
Unfortunately, the probability of me repurchasing either of these products is low. I may grab Wink Mascara in Indigo Punk, but that’s a maybe. While these may be for some people (and I’ve seen some rave reviews) they don’t suit my preferences – especially for the price point.
Mascara – $20.00 and is available in 6 shades
Eye Pencil – $18.00 and is available in 6 shades
