Today I want to talk about the Alverde pencil eyeliners, I own a few of these, however, I think they vary a lot quality-wise. I picked the shade 07 in blue to write about, because I couldn't find my purple eyeliner any longer... First of all, I like to mention that I really love the pencil eyeliners from the limited editions, since they're nicely pigmented. Sadly I can't say the same for their regular editions.... I bought a purple and a blue shade, both are kinda hard to work with, plus pigmentation was pretty bad, too. Oh, I even had one in white as well which I originally purchased to use on my waterline, but soon abandoned this idea due to low pigmentation. Overall, pretty disappointing.
I really had hoped the blue would be more vibrant but sadly it is not the case. It is too sheer for my taste and doesn't glide on smoothly. I had to press quite hard to get this result, so... I don't want to imagine that I have to use the same force on my eye. (☆o◎)
Here I'm not saying that all pencil eyeliners from Alverde are equally bad since I'm absolutely in love with these.
Personally I wouldn't recommend you to buy the shade in purple, blue and white. Then, I'm not sure if Alverde improved the formula of the aforementioned or not, since the ones I bought were older, ranging from 2009-2011. Also, I believe that this particular shade in blue got discontinued as well but still, for me it's like a 50/50 chance so unless I find a shade that's absolute stunning I wouldn't purchase any eyeliner pencils from Alverde any time soon.
