Review: Mineral Fusion Eye Pencil

I love eyeliner pencils. A sharp pencil creates fantastic, clean lines and gives an artist much greater control over a look. Good pencils smudge when needed and won't break easily. It gets even better when the ingredient list is vegan. One pencil that meets these high standards is the Mineral Fusion Eye Pencil.

  • Contains no beeswax (suitable for vegans)
  • Minimal, eco-conscious pacakaging
  • Smooth, rich colors
  • Will smudge if desired
  • Great consistency that applies evenly
  • Available in many retail stores
  • Contains hydrogenated cottonseed oil
I tested out the eye pencil in rough, a medium brown color. The color was fairly soft, which would work well for natural looks on lighter skin tones. It could even double as a brow pencil for blondes. At $15, these pencils are made more affordable by the wide retail availability (which helps save on shipping). They are fairly gentle, rating just a 2 on the EWG Skin Deep database. Surprisingly, it would be even more gentle without the inclusion of hydrogenated cottonseed oil, which weighs heavily at an 8 hazard rating. I was glad to see that the ingredient list is vegan and the line currently boasts five color options (including a deep blue and a green). If you're looking for a vegan pencil to buy locally, Mineral Fusion's eye pencil is a nice option.

Also available on Amazon.com.
