My experience with Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil – Solid Black:-

Solid Black as the name signifies is nothing but a plain black eye liner. The pencil is free from all kinds of shimmers and makes a beautiful matte black liner.Faces-Canada-Long-Wear-Eye-Pencil-SolidBlack

The color pay-off like rest of the liners is excellent. The liner is insanely pigmented and glides like butter on lids. The liner swipes smoothly giving rich black color to the lids in a single stroke. The intensity of the shade can be further increased with multiple swipes. The liner looks slightly glossy when swiped but turns matte within few seconds as it sets.



It lasts long on my lids and doesn’t smudge, fade for 6-7 hours but as the eyes starts turning oily the liner shows slight smearing. When swatched on hand and given few seconds to set,  it didn’t budge, just faded lightly even if rubbed it hard.

EOTD:- I used Solid Black over upper lash-line and Faces Navy Blue on Lower


Pros of Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil – Solid Black:-

  1. Superb creamy texture
  2. Glides Effortlessly
  3. Great Color pay off
  4. Beautiful matte black liner
  5. Smudge-proof
  6. Stays whole day
  7. Color coded packaging

Cons of Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil – Solid Black:-

  1. I am not able to draw very thin lines with these eye liners.


Recommendation:- Faces Canada Long Wear Eye Pencil – Solid Black is a basic black eye liner with extra ordinary staying power. The soft creamy texture glides nicely over lids imparting deep black color. It takes only few seconds to set and once set it is there for whole day without any fading or smudging. It tends to smudge a bit by EOD after (7-8 hours of wear) which is okay with me.

This is next favorite after Maybelline Gel Liner-Black but if you aren’t ready for gel liner, try this eye pencil. Solid Black makes a lovely everyday black eye pencil. A must have for those who love tight lining their lower lash line. Highly Recommended!






Rating:- 4.7/5

Have used a couple of them and totally loved them! My only grudge with these pencils is that they’re so soft,that you have to sharpen after lining each eye.. And I hate having to sharpen my pencils when I’m in a rush 🙁
If you don’t mind that part,these pencils are fabulous in terms of quality+staying power. 😛
And btw,Faces has hiked their rates to Rs.349 🙁

Hey Nandini.. I now have almost all of them and in love with each and every shade… ya sharpening this with just one application is a bit dreadful but I dont mind that considering its quality and.. On me they give both eye application after sharpned once…
Even I was disappointed to see this huge hike.. but we poor girls doesnt have other place to go na.. 🙁 🙁
I couldnt find such pretty shade with comparable quality in any other brand at better price.. If you know any do suggessttt 🙂 🙂

Bought metal brown for my mom, and she loves it. It’s so buttery soft and pigmented that it’s hard to find someone who is not a fan of these pencils. I’m eyeing forest green for myself 🙂


poonam March 10, 2013 at 10:53 PM

Hey Smriti… These pencils are truely a hit with their smoothness and color payoff..
