Cruelty-free spotlight on Eye of Horus!

So, I’ve been dying to try Eye of Horus ever since I first heard about their Goddess Pencils from Sharon Farrell, one of my fave makeup ‘gurus’.   I’m forever on the hunt for a liner that will stay put in my waterline, and word on the blog-street was that this one does just that.

I’d been procrastinating for quite a while when I saw one of their Goddess Promotions that I simply could not resist… It came with lots of goodies, for a nicely discounted price, which included just the pencil I was hankering for:

Eye of Horus Goddess Promotion

  • Sheba Mystical Palette
    • Artifact – Creamy Beige Metallic (light)
    • Enchantress Peach Matte (medium)
    • Royal Abyss Rich Deep Purple Metallic (dark)
  • Goddess Pencil – Smokey Black
  • Goddess Mascara – Black
  • Liquid Metal Liner – Copper Sphinx
  • Promotional Gift- The quite lovely soy coconut-and-lime scented candle by Byron Bay

First up, a couple of looks I created using only the products in the kit.  No primer and I used the brush that comes with the palette.

I was, of course, drawn to choosing the Sheba Mystical Palette for that gorgeous purple.  Plus, my grandparents’ dog, Sheba, was one of my loves when I was a kid…. I’d been a bit trepidatious about Enchantress, as peachy tones tend to pull a bit brassy on my skin tone, but I quite liked this subtle wash of color, which I then jazzed up with a bit of Copper Sphinx, a nice easy to apply liner for those of us who are less than adept with liquid liner wings.

Then I used the angled side of the brush to do a little purple wedge with Royal Abyss over a base of Artifact.  Such a gorgeous glow!

The Goddess Pencil applied easily and, get this, lasted through a full face wash with makeup remover!  Not too shabby on the staying power front.  I think you can see from the photos above, the mascara was nicely lenghthening.  I didn’t find it to be too volumizing, but I’m thinking this might be one of those mascaras that I like even more once its dried out a bit.

Now for the closeups on the goodies themselves.

This particular kit seems to no longer be featured on the Eye of Horus website, but they still have a bunch of other promos if anyone is interested, and all of these products are offered individually as well 🙂
