Topshop Eye Crayon

I have been falling in love with this Topshop crayon like there's no tomorrow. I purchased it quite a while ago but have only started using it over the last few weeks. This one is in the shade 'Mystical' and is beautiful metallic brown colour. It comes out quite dark so depending on what you like, may be best to limit it to evening wear. It's a twisty crayon so saves all the hassle of needing to sharpen it. 

I haven't really used many products from the Topshop make up range but was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this product. It has a really nice formula, creamy but dries really fast. I struggle to find creamy/pencil eye shadows that don't crease and his little one has answered all of my prayers! Providing you don't apply a mega thick layer of it, it dries very evenly and it durable without creasing. I was expecting to be reapplying it all day but there was no need it for! Very impressed with crayon and will definitely look into getting some more colours.

So far I've only worn it by itself with some silver liner in the inner corners of my eye and it looked lovely, but I think it would also look nice as a base with either darker shades or bronzy/golden shadow worn over the top.

(Note: for some reason the swatch looks much more silvery than the actual product. The crayon is most definitely a browny colour)
