Every time I think that maybe I’ve overstated my love for the brand By Terry, something new is released and I fall in love all over again! Edwin at Space NK showed me the new Crayon Kohl Pencils from By Terry, and trust me… they are to DIE for.
I bought them in waves… two at a time. I think there are five. I bought four. There’s a purple that will have to wait, as it’s not nearly as stunning as the first four and therefore did not have to come home with me right away.
These pencils remind me a lot of the Urban Decay variety regarding slip and staying power. They are incredibly smooth, set in about 30 seconds and DO NOT MOVE unless you take them off with oil based cleanser. Edwin tried to take the swatches off my arm with a water based cleanser and I swear we heard the pencils laughing at us! They stay put, and they wear beautifully. I’ve already used (and resharpened) the brown one several times. I’m trying out the blue one next.
They’re not cheap, but by By Terry standards, they’re hardly expensive. They retail for about 30 bucks each. You can get them at http://www.spacenk.com
