On a recent trip to Birchbox, I found myself perusing the samples, making the tough decision every girl is forced to make when filling her box. So many life-altering products, but only five can make the cut! In the end, I think I made the right choices. One product, in particular, got my vote: Vasanti Kajal Extreme Intense Eyeliner Pencil in Rose Gold. Have you ever seen an eyeliner pencil in ROSE GOLD?? I sure haven’t. Urban Decay doesn’t even have it! And while I was skeptical at first (I usually go for dark liner shades), my curiosity got the best of me. And I’m so glad it did — this eyeliner is amazing!
First off, it looks good on everyone! As I said, when it comes to eyeliner, I don’t usually sway too far from the brown zone. Light eyeliner colors usually make me look like I’ve been downing espresso shots for the past 24 hours (read: overstimulated and INSANE). I’ve tried brightly colored liners too, but they usually end up smearing across my face in sad clown fashion — no subtlety about it.
The rose gold is the perfect metallic shade — it’s not so shiny that I’d qualify it as an “evening only” eyeliner, but definitely not too pedestrian for a night out! It makes me look awake and alert without the usual tinge of insanity. And if it smears throughout the day (which it rarely does!), it’s super hard to tell.
The entire SHEfinds team went on this trip to Birchbox, so I can confirm that I’ve seen the same color on coworkers with wildly different coloring and it STILL looks flawless! This is honestly the most versatile colored liner I’ve ever worn. Try it today!
