Eye Of Horus Cosmetics Goddess Pencil Review

27/05/2017

*Press sample included

Eye Of Horus Cosmetics has been a favorite brand of mine for quite a while now. Eye Of Horus Cosmetics is a cruelty free, Australian brand that specialises in eye makeup products. They make mascara, pencil eyeliners, liquid eyeliners (including some metallic shades), eyeshadows and eyebrow products. Today I will be reviewing the Goddess Pencils which are a pigmented pencil eyeliner that has a smudger on one end.

The Eye Of Horus Goddess Pencil is double ended, with a sharpenable eyeliner on one end, and a built in smudger on the other. Both ends have lids that slip on easily but sit firmly so they never fall off. The lid on the smudger end is the colour of the pencil, so you can easily find the pencil you want when rifling through a pile of them. The Goddess Pencils are highly pigmented, they give opaque coverage in 1 to 2 swipes, even on the waterline. The best part about these pencils is that they apply well to the waterline (as well as the eyelid), and once set, they don’t smudge. The pencils can be smudged if done so immediately after application but after a minute or so, you will find they set down and become very hard to rub off. There are however easily removed with makeup remover or an oil cleanser, and they don’t leave a stain on my very fair skin.

My skin and eyes are very sensitive so I can have a bad reaction or get watery eyes from some products on the market, I’ve never had any issues with the Eye Of Horus Cosmetics products though. All the Eye Of Horus products are made with quality ingredients. The Goddess Pencils contain Beeswax, Carnauba and Candelilla waxes as well as organic Moringa Oil, making the eyeliners waterproof and smudge proof. The Eye Of Horus Goddess Pencil eyeliners come in 12 shades so you can find one for any occasion. The colours are Selenite White (true white), Sahara Nude (pale peach), Emerald Tabula (emerald green), Jewel Amethyst (deep berry purple), Scarab Sapphire (indigo blue), Lazuli Blue (electric blue), Teal Malachite (topaz blue), Bronze Amulet (copper infused chocolate), Nubian Brown (velvet coffee), Serpentine Sultry (deep olive), Charcoal Obsidian (asphalt grey) and Smokey Black (jet black). I went into a stockist to get swatches of them all 6 months ago for my blog post Cruelty Free Gift Ideas For Beauty Lovers. but accidentally labeled Smokey Black and Smokey Eye – you get the idea though. I own the Selenite White, Sahara Nude, Teal Malachite and Nubian Brown Goddess Pencils and Eye Of Horus were kind enough to send me the Smokey Black to try.

I definitely get the most use out of the Sahara Nude Goddess Pencil as it is the perfect nude colour for the waterline. I have tried so many nude eye liners and they’re either too dark (so they don’t give the awake look), too light (so they draw too much attention) or too shiny (so the waterline looks wet constantly), but the Sahara Nude one works perfectly for me. It apparently works as a spot concealer and highlighter but I haven’t used it that way. I have no doubt that I will buy replacements for my Sahara Nude pencil when mine gets too small to use. The next colour I get the most use out of is the Nubian Brown as it is a really dark brown so it works well with all eye looks, but it is just light enough so that it doesn’t have the harshness of a straight black. I do love the Selenite White and Smokey Black colours but I tend to use them when I’m going out rather than just a daytime look. The Smokey Black is a jet black colour and applies to the eyelid and waterline just as well as all the other colours. I’m not confidant enough to wear bright eye looks yet, but I have used the Teal Malachite Goddess Pencil to add just a bit of colour to a look. Teal Malachite has a metallic like finish to it created by what looks to be ever so tiny shimmer particles, which make the colour pop. It is such a gorgeous teal shade too, I don’t think I have seen another eyeliner in this shade before. The next colour on my list to get is the Bronze Amulet Goddess Pencil as it looks perfect for the current rose gold/sunset/bronze toned eye looks that are popular right now.

When I go to buy eyeliners and lip liners, I always gravitate towards the mechanical twist up sort as I have has so many bad experiences with sharpening makeup pencils. The Eye Of Horus Goddess Pencils are however the only sharpenable eyeliners I use, plus they’re my favourite eyeliners for the waterline. I own the Eye Of Horus cosmetic sharpener and use that on all my Goddess Pencils. I haven’t had any of the pencils break, sharpen unevenly or fall out of the outer casing as I have had with just about every other makeup pencil from other brands. Eye Of Horus say to freeze the Goddess Pencil before sharpening, I haven’t done that and the results were good, but if it were warmer weather, I would definitely try it. They also have a warning to try and keep the pencils away from heat and light so that the wax doesn’t shrink. My beauty room isn’t climate controlled in any way and I’ve had no problems with my Goddess Pencils but it’s a good idea to try and put them somewhere they won’t be exposed to extreme temperatures.

Eye Of Horus are one of my favourite brands because they make such amazing products but I also love the brand as they have contributed to my last two annual Lyme Disease awareness giveaways which means a lot to me. This years Lyme Disease awareness giveaway is still open for a few more hours so head over to my Instagram to see how to enter. You can win one of the Eye Of Horus Cosmetics Goddess Brow Essentials Pack which includes my all time favourite brow pencil the Eye Of Horus Cosmetics Brow Define – I’ll do whole blog post on that amazing product in future.

It has been hard to find a cruelty free eyeliner that has quality ingredients and works well on my waterline, but the Eye Of Horus Cosmetics Goddess Pencil eyeliners tick all the boxes. I can’t remember the last time I put on makeup and didn’t use one of the Goddess Pencils. The range of colours is really nice, there’s something for everyone. It would be cool to see some bright colours like yellow, orange and pink from them as then I would have to try and embrace colour to try them – it could be impossible to formulate those colours though (I really have no idea). Eye Of Horus Cosmetics is definitely a brand to check out, I have loved all the Eye Of Horus Products I have tried and can’t wait to see what they have in store for us in future. Have you tried the Goddess Pencil eyeliners or are they on your wish list? Which colour is your favourite?

Love, Alinta

    These pencils sound amazing! My eyes are really sensitive and often I avoid pencils as a result but I think I’ll give these ones a go after reading your review.

      My eyes are sensitive too but they work with these, and with my contacts well too. Hopefully it’s the same for you 🙂

    Ooohh! That Teal Malachite pencil looks like a must *hnnnng*

  • Shell 06/06/2017 at 12:16 pm

    Ah I ♥ me some Eye of Horus stuff! I’ve got their Goddess Mascara (have used it for ages, still ♥ it), 2 of their pencil eyeliners (Bronze Amulet & Scarab Sapphire), their bronze liquid liner (haven’t used it yet…I’m a bit scared to though) + their Brow Define in the medium shade (a decent dupe for ABH’s Brow Wiz in Medium Brown). The mascara & brow pencil I use often, the eyeliner pencils I’ve only just begun using in the last year. Bronze Amulet’s ok, I just wish it’d pop a little more (still decent though). Scarab Sapphire, on the other hand, is a good alternative to black liner for us pale gals.

    • Alinta McMurdo 06/06/2017 at 10:01 pm

      I have the brown liquid liner but I love the look of the metallic ones, just not sure I have the confidence to wear them lol The brow pencil is my go to as well, I like it better than the abh one. I use the lightest shade and it’s perfect for me. I like the mascara but it flakes a bit which can irritate my eyes sometimes but I want to try the new vegan one as I’ve heard great things about that one. I really want to get bronze amulet, but I’ll check out Sapphire for sure, thanks for the tip 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to try EOH products for a long time. Reading your fantastic post makes me want to remedy that! xx

    Such a great review Alinta, which they do indeed deserve – EOH Goddess Pencils are my absolute favourite, have been for years. The only one I’ve never tried (and don’t currently own) is the Sahara Nude, but that’s next on my list to order. I use the Teal one at least once a week, same for the Emerald, Brown, Serpentine & Sapphire – not just on the waterline, but under eyeshadow as well to hold the powder in place. They are truly the best on the market ♥♥♥

    • It’s been 6.5 weeks since my first Pfizer vaccination and 3.5 since my second, but I still feel like death warmed up. This isn’t surprising. My immunologist, GP and I all knew I would suffer, but that doesn’t make it easier to deal with. This isn’t a covid vaccine specific reaction, I react to all vaccines in the same way. I was out of action for 2 weeks after my meningococcal vaccine last December and most people don’t have any problems with that vax. My vaccine reactions are specific to only me, because of my unique immune deficiencies. My immunologist has never come across anyone else with the combination of immune deficiencies that I have. Unfortunately, one of my worse deficiencies is that of Memory B Cells, which means I don’t make immunity to many vaccines, and when I do, it doesn’t last for long. I still get vaccinated despite this, because it matters. So the point of this post - please get your covid vaccination when you are eligible to. Many vulnerable people like myself are relying on herd immunity and we’re just not going to get there if everyone doesn’t do their part. I didn’t get a pretty sticker but the potential of covid antibodies is better than any sticker.

    • I think I’ve made it pretty obvious that I care about Indigenous rights as well as the environment. So I am particularly interested in how Indigenous people want to combat climate change because climate change action desperately needs to be decolonised. 
Unfortunately, those who are the least responsible for climate change are the ones who ones who will suffer the most, and many Indigenous people will be more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change because of colonisation. Indigenous people and their knowledge are frequently left out of climate discussions and that needs to change. My climate change uni subject focuses on exactly that this week. 
For a long time I’ve wanted to post about this sort of thing but I haven’t known where to start. I have no idea where the level of environmental and climate knowledge is at with the general public so I would love if you could let me know how much you know about it. Then at least I have a place to start. 
Also, thanks for sticking by me, it has been very hard to get through this subject whilst going through all my health stuff plus vaccines. I have my second vax on Thursday and a few more weeks of uni and then I’ll be around more often. 
Oh and don’t forget to show up to the climate strike on Friday 😊

    • Here are the ring details as promised. I think you all knew that my ring was going to be ethical in some way. It wouldn’t be me otherwise, would it? I’ve followed @ethicaljewelleryaustralia for years now, so I’ve known for a long time that I would want them to make a ring for me. It’s something that I will be wearing everyday, so I want it to represent my values. So the ring is handmade by #EthicalJewelleryAustralia in the design I wanted. It’s a round diamond with a four prongs that look like little petals. It’s made with recycled platinum and a lab diamond. Diamond and metal mining have a lot of negative social and environmental impacts, plus a lab diamond is far more affordable than a traditionally mined diamond, which means you can reduce your impact on people, the planet and your hip pocket. I hope lab grown diamonds are the choice of the future, as it is far better for human rights and the environment to make a diamond in a lab using renewable energy, than it is to mine them from the ground, using fossil fuels and unethical labor - just look into blood diamonds if you want to know how bad it can get. I also plan on trying to have a more ethical wedding too. I’ve already found a carbon neutral venue, but I’ve got lots of research to do on everything else. Let me know if you have any ideas for a sustainable wedding.

    • With it being #EarthDay, I thought I would share some on my sustainable cleaning products. Everyone has to clean, but supermarket cleaning products don’t tend to be very eco-friendly. Here I’ve got my @ecomaxbrushes Bottle brush which is made from coconut waste products and can be composted at the end of its life - it will just leave the wire which can be recycled. There’s my Safix biodegradable scrub pad made from organic coconut fibers which can be composted when you are finished with it. And @retrokitchenaustralia biodegradable dish cloth in a cute dog print. It’s made from cotton and cellulose and can be composted when worn out. I use them with the @koalaeco Natural Multipurpose Kitchen Cleaner which is cruelty free, vegan and palm oil free and comes in 100% post consumer recycled bottles that can be recyclable when finished. I get the big refill bottles and just fill up my spray bottle. I bought all the above from @floraandfaunaau and they’re actually having 15% off eco items today, so all of these are discounted. Don’t forget to use my #floraandfaunaau affiliate code on my blog if you ever make a purchase, it helps me out. There’s lots of other ways to make regular household chores better for the environment. It can feel overwhelming to charge, but just start with small steps. When one product runs out you can replace it with a more sustainable option. One of the last things I need to change is is my laundry detergent so I’m thinking I’ll try @thedirtcompany one. I would love to hear what you think of their products if you’ve tried them. Also let know what eco swaps you’ve made in your home so that I can get more ideas. #EcoSwaps #LoveAlinta

    • I have some news. I’m engaged! As a kid/teen I never thought this would happen as I didn’t believe in love - then I got sick and worried that no one would see past my illnesses. But I have found someone who loves me for me, faults, illnesses and all and I can’t wait to marry him. 
We spent yesterday afternoon attempting to take our own engagement photos in the yard with a tripod and this is the result. Having a photographer would be so much easier but my immune system wouldn’t appreciate that. 
Oh and I’ll tell you all about my ring in another post as I designed it ☺️#engagedtomybestfriend #lovealinta

    • It’s been a while since I posted makeup, so here’s some makeup 🙃 the @meccamax Off Duty BB Cream made it into my 2020 faves blog post, and it’s still my favourite base to use on the rare occasion that I put makeup on. I’ve just been too tired to wear makeup the last couple of months. The #meccamax Off Duty BB Cream is cruelty free and vegan. It however only comes in 5 shades. I use the lightest shade Vanilla, which has a good undertone for me, but I have to mix it with the same amount of white concealer to make it light enough to use. @MeccaMaxima have said they will extend the shade range of their home brands for years now, but they still don’t sell a single base shade that I could use by itself, and I’m sure that’s the same for dark skin tones. The other criticism I have of this product is the packaging. The lack of pump makes it hard to control the amount that comes out, and I would really prefer if it were in glass as that would be easier to recycle. The actual cream itself is amazing though. The formula works so well on my skin. It’s easy to blend with a brush and doesn’t cake up or feel heavy. Have you tried this BB cream? Do you have another favourite cruelty free and vegan BB cream? #meccabeauty #crueltyfreebeauty #veganbeauty #lovealinta

    • It has been a long week here. It’s my uni mid semester break, but it hasn’t been a break at all as I’ve spent the whole week writing things for my NDIS application. I’ve written 5000 words so far and spent far more money than I should have to to access support that I need. I’m trying to get my application in before the independent assessments start. If you don’t know, the federal government is trying to force independent assessments on people applying for or reviewing their NDIS plans. They have had a huge amount of feedback explaining how bad this will be for disabled people, but they just don’t care. Disabled people are going to go without the care that they need because this government is completely ableist. Non-disabled people really need to be speaking up about this right now, because the fed government is too ableist to listen to disabled people. Allies are really needed at times like this, so please show up.

    • My chronic illness health planning blog post is up now at lovealinta.com (clickable link in bio). Managing multiple complex chronic illnesses is like having a full time job (that I don’t get paid to do), so I need all the help I can get to keep everything organised. In this picture you can see how I keep track of my appointments each month using the @chasingplannerpeace Colourful Month on Two Pages inserts and @pmdstickers. It helps with pacing to know exactly what I have coming up when, and makes sure I don’t forget to show up to any appointments. I’ve had so many appointments over the last month, plus I’m back at uni, so my body is extremely unhappy with me right now - but that’s just life when you have a long list of illnesses and specialists to go with them. Check out my blog post and let me know which inserts would help you the most with your health/medical planning. Do you have any planning tips for other chronically ill and disabled people? *press sample

    • Sending my love to everyone who has had a rough couple of weeks because of what it happening in Aus politics right now. Please prioritize your self care, it’s more important than ever at the moment. By self care, I don’t just mean applying a face mask and doing nothing else. I mean finding genuine ways to reduce the anxiety and/or depression that recent events have triggered. That might mean doing mindfulness, meditation, journaling or exercise. You can also talk to your doctor about medications that can help. Taking medication is not a sign of weakness, it’s just another tool that you can use to help. Coping is different for everyone, you need to find what works for you. The thing that has helped me the most is therapy. I have been in therapy for many many many years now, but the one thing that really helped my PTSD was EMDR. There are other techniques that can be used for PTSD too. If you’re in Melbourne, the CASA house, run via the Women’s hospital offers free services specifically for survivors of sexual assault. They also run a 24 hour counseling and support line - 03 9635 3610 that you can call any time. Nationally there is the 1800Respect line - 1800 737 732, Sexual Assault Counseling Australia 1800 211 028 and Lifeline (24 hour crisis line) 131 114. If you’re thinking about calling, please do it. I now have my PTSD well controlled, but it is harder during times like these. Getting help isn’t an immediate fix but it will make life a lot easier in the long run. You deserve help, please seek it. #ptsd #lovealinta
      Sending my love to everyone who has had a rough couple of weeks because of what it happening in Aus politics right now. Please prioritize your self care, it’s more important than ever at the moment. By self care, I don’t just mean applying a face mask and doing nothing else. I mean finding genuine ways to reduce the anxiety and/or depression that recent events have triggered. That might mean doing mindfulness, meditation, journaling or exercise. You can also talk to your doctor about medications that can help. Taking medication is not a sign of weakness, it’s just another tool that you can use to help. Coping is different for everyone, you need to find what works for you. The thing that has helped me the most is therapy.
