{REVIEW} Ralo Jumbo Eye Pencils

September 16, 2014

I’ve recently started using more and more products from Ralo Cosmetics and I’ve come to the conclusion that they’re quite underrated. Their range of products are inexpensive, but that doesn’t mean that the products themselves are cheap.  So far I’ve used the Ralo BB Cream, nail polishes and eyeliner pen and I’ve only had positive experiences with all of these. The eyeliner pen is a firm favourite of mine and one of their nail polishes will be featuring in an upcoming post about my favourite shades for Summertime. But enough about future posts let’s get down to business. I was recently sent four beautiful jumbo eyeliner pencils (R23.60 each) and two twist pencils (R22 each) for review purposes and then also an extra set to give away to one lucky lady.

The jumbo eye pencil shades I received were Dark Green Glitter, Gold Glitter, Turquoise and Green. I found all of these to be nicely pigmented and very smooth and creamy in consistency. The non-glitter ones glide on and offer a lot of colour payoff, while the two glittery shades were a bit trickier to apply. I don’t normally wear such shocking colours, but hey, it’s Spring (almost Summer) and now is as good as time as any to start brightening up my makeup looks. These jumbo pencils come with a sharpener in the lid which I think is the niftiest idea. All pencils should come like this, don’t you think? The smooth texture of these pencils enables you to wear them as a smudged eyeshadow or as a messier eyeliner look, depending on the steadiness of your hand and tip sharpness.

I found that these pencils blend beautifully and stay put for a decent length of time. I was more than impressed with the quality to be honest. The colours are vivid and buildable and the texture is spot on. I decided to create 4 different, wearable looks to show you guys how easy it is to take these colours from bold to subtle. They don’t look nearly as daunting anymore, do they? I can definitely see myself sporting these looks this season. What do you think? Ralo actually have a few more shades on their website, so take a peek if you’re interested.
