Aigle Noir means Black Eagle. Which makes me love this pencil even more. It applies like a dream. Literally glides on. You can build the intensity with additional strokes and easily soften the line by blending it out. Shape it into a tighter line with a q-tip. Smudge it all over your lid. Or use it as a base for traditional eye shadow. In one quick stroke, it gives you done eyes! A go-to for both a soft halo of light around my lash line or a bolder more dramatic eye.
And the color! The color is this decadent bronzey golden flecked black. Now, I hate to call it a soft grease pencil, for fear that it will scare people off. But it kinda is. Yet it never gets messy. You can clean up any mishaps so easily and yet it has great wear power. A luscious find!
Start with an eyelid primer or some shadow to be sure this soft pencil stays put. It’s worth the extra step. I promise.
