Product Review: Holika Holika Jewel-Light Eyeliner in Pink Topaz

      One of the few makeup items I bought in Korea was the Holika Holika Jewel Eyeliner pencil in pink topaz. I was attracted to these pencils because one of the makeup trends in Korea is to line the bottom of your eye (not your waterline) with a pink or champagne glittery shade. It's similar to how here in the West we add a bit of a highlight shade to our inner eyelids, except in Korea they extend this shade to about halfway on the lower lid. Swatches and reviews after the jump.

Review

      Although the price seems to differ in the States, I purchased this pencil for only $5 in Korea. It was a great buy! Unlike some pencils with glitter in them which tends to lead to some fallout, the Holika Holika pencil does not have any fallout. In terms of wear time, it's amazing. I tend to have oily eyelids so most formulas disappear on me within a couple hours. Holika Holika's pencil stays put - including the micro glitter. I have not tried the pencil on my eyelids so I can't vouch for its longevity there, but it definitely has staying power when you line your lower lid. It goes on smoothly without tugging, and it has great color payoff.

Concluding Remarks

      The Holika Holika Jewel-Light Eyeliner pencil is available on Amazon as well as Urban Outfitters. Amazon is selling pink topaz for $5.33 which is essentially how much they sell it for in Korea, but the other shades vary in price with some over $10. Urban Outfitters seems to be selling all the shades for $8, and I do think this pencil is worth it if the price is under $10. If you don't like pink topaz, try the 18k gold shade, it's warmer toned and just as pretty!
