Korean Make up Trash, Treat or Stash: Etude House's Proof 10 Auto Pencil Eyeliner

Trash, Treat or Stash. The Korean make-up products I've discovered are better off in the bin, the ones you should treat yourself to every now and again, and the ones that are so good that you should definitely make sure you have a stash of them.

Proof 10 Auto Pencil Etude House

Well it's the night before Halloween and sadly I don't have any witchiness planned for the weekend! Boo! Halloween used to be my absolute favourite holiday of the year. I remember being in primary school and deciding on Halloween that I loved the day so much that I was going to have a party. I invited all of my friends and told them to be at my house that night. It was only when my mum picked me up from the childminder's about 20 minutes before the party was due to start that I announced my plans. I don't think she was best happy, but we still had a great time! It's bizarre in Korea as it's obviously not as big a thing here, and when I tell the children it's Halloween this week they're really blase and like 'Oh Really. And?'. I'm way more excited than them! Because of the day it's fallen on this year, people have sort of spread out there plans, celebrating a bit last week and a little this week, but I seem to have missed out on it all. Oh well! There are lots more to come!

So incase anyone is planning on dressing up this weekend, I thought I would share one of Etude House's products which is perfect for creating witchy eyes. It's the proof 10 Auto Pencil.

Cost: This costs 6,000 which is just over 2.50. I think that's a fine price to pay for an eyeliner.
Usability: The product is really creamy so is really easy to draw neat lines on your eyelid. Just screw the top to get more of the product out, and there is a tiny sharpener on the bottom of the pencil, if you really need a precise line. It's not so great as some liquid eyeliners if precision is the sole thing you're looking for, but this does give a really dense colour just by easily applying.
Durability: This product is waterproof, so it can stand up to big fat raindrops that try and take your make up away. It also doesn't really tend to smudge too easily, or leave the black ring on your socket or brow bone which I sometimes get from an ordinary pencil. I wouldn't say it lasts all day, but it will last the majority of the day.


Overall: This is a great, cheap eyeliner that can do the job of a pencil and a liquid liner. It's not perfect, but for the price I think it's pretty spiffing! It's easy to adjust if you go wrong, and you don't have the annoying drying time that you sometimes get with liquid liners. It's waterproof so can last throughout the drizzly Autumn days and is even specially designed for sensitive peepers. I would recommend that if you're looking for an all in one, daily eyeliner then give this one a go!
