Eye of Horus - New goddess pencil additions ( Lazuli blue and Jewel Amethyst )
So I have had the upmost pleasure last year to review, Eye of Horus liquid define and loved the product. I was kindly allowed to trial one of the 2 new Goddess pencil additions.
A little about the Eye of Horus ;
The Eye of Horus range of Goddess eye makeup is based on Ancient Egyptian formulas and ingredients, including Carnauba wax, Rice Bran wax, Candelilla wax and the revered Moringa oil claimed by the Gods for its beautifying and regenerating powers.

The Goddess pencils are
- A creamy rich formula that is easy to apply and is long-lasting
- Waterproof & smudge-proof
- the smudger on the end enables use as a eyeshadow (be quick though)
- Resists oil and perspiration with no fading
2 New shades are ;
Lazuli blue - Embellish your eyes with stunning sacred Lazuli Blue - Lunar stone of the Goddess, bewitches with a flash of vibrant blue immortalising your look to alluring desire. Our bright electric blue will immediately transform and intensify with radiant colour, smudge and smoulder for a serious pop of colour.
Jewel amethyst - Our Jewel Amethyst offers a deep purple colour with intensely rich pigments and bold metallic micro-glitter. To instantly captivate like a jewelled Goddess, our smooth formula is bright and rich for a serious pop of colour, the ‘it’ colour for 2014.
So the packaging for Eye of Horus products is beautiful. Comes wrapped in a black bag with embossed hyroglifics down the middle. The paper inside also is black with gold logos and writing printed.
Goddess pencil consistency :
Is an extremely smooth and creamy pencil which is paraben, cruelty free using only natural ingredients. Made up of Moringa oils and natural ingredients, perfect if your on the look for sensitive friendly cosmetics. I didn't need to warm the pencil to do my swatch, it was a simple back and forward motion. It did not pull nor cause skin irritation, plus extremely pigmented.
Lazuli blue review ;
The pencil is extremely pigmented. I would say its a beautiful jewelled light blue. It comes with a smudger which gives a duel purpose, to be used as a shadow or an eyeliner. I would advise to do an eye at a time, if you wish to use as a shadow. I used brushes, as they were more gentle for eye smudging. I found the colour was beautiful for under the eye, to highlight the natural colour. I love the pencils as they are stunning colours. They are perfect for the waterline and don't move. Most pencils in my experience need reapplication, due to gradual fading in the day. The Eye if Horus products do not need reapplication. *(It my personal preference as I find sponges drag no matter how soft.)
