Mr. Write (Now) is not the kind of guy to hit it and quit it.
Um…can I say that on the blog?? I dunno, that might be kind of rude.
Let me try again…
Will you ever meet Mr. Right? Absolutely! In fact, Mr. Write is ready to meet you right now.
OK, that was better. 🙂
Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to commit to this new line of twist-up eyeliner pencils by theBalm. Make a note in your diary to meet one of these guys next time you’re near a counter. They’re available in eight $17 shades, with some of them mattes and some of them shimmers (incidentally, they have a built-in sharpener hidden in the bottom of each pencil).
I was surprised my eyes didn’t freak out when I wore Jac. B Bronze on my water lines this week, because they can usually only tolerate MAC Eye Kohls this time of year. My skin gets very sensitive when the air is cold and dry.
Now, as one might expect of an eyeliner pencil called Mr. Write (Now), these guys will not sneak off without buying you breakfast. They want to stick around (nine+ hours). None of them, and that includes Jac B. Bronze, who I’m wearing on my lower lash lines in these pics, are commitment-phobes.
In fact, these long-lasting twist-up liners are so heavy-duty that I have to use an oil-based makeup remover with them. The formula also dries very quickly, so if you plan to do any smudging, don’t dilly-dally.
I should mention that Jac B. Bronze employed several play-yuh tricks on me, and dayum! — they worked.
First, he caressed my skin with his silky smooth formula. Then he wooed me with his powerful pigment (ah…). Then he sealed the deal with his worthy wear time of nine hours (oh…).
Uh…this is starting to sound dirty-birdy again.
All you really need to know is this: these guys want to stick around, so why wait for Mr. Right when Mr. Write Now is available now at theBalm counters and online. 🙂
PRICE: $17 each
AVAILABILITY: Permanent, with eight shades available now at theBalm counters and online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+/A- (love these for their wear time, but they’re difficult to remove and set VERY quickly)
