Pat McGrath Labs Permagel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil Review
These days, practically every brand has their own unique take on the classic eyeliner. In the case of Pat McGrath Labs, their take comes in the form of the Permagel Ultra Glide Eye Pencil. This eyeliner formula is a little bit more workable than your usual pencil eyeliner, but it does come with its specific downsides. First of all, a huge boon for this pencil is that the package comes with its own sharpener, making sure you always have a sharp tool ready to do the work. This product applies beautifully, and the colors are rich and highly pigmented. It also does tend to stay on, which can be a downside as well, but we’ll get to that in a bit. This product is pretty pricey for a pencil eyeliner, even if you count the sharpener as part of the price, so that’s definitely something to consider. The eyeliner is also prone to smudging, especially when used to tightline on the lower lash line. This can be a problem when you’re on the go because, as mentioned, this product really clings to the skin, so it can be difficult to do touch-ups. Otherwise, this product is pretty solid, and is worth at least a try to see if the formula works for you.
