No7 Smoky powder eyeliner was my first ever powder eyeliner. While I was back in UK, I just picked up these eyeliners only for the fact that I found it pretty cheap and also wanted to try something from this brand. Since then I fell in love with it. The fact that we don’t find it here in India got me upset. So I kept it aside. Later I realised that I had been ignorant of these eyeliners and that I had to share these beauties with you.

No7 smoky powder eyeliner comes in a very cute packaging. This eyeliner is different. It has a long and thin applicator with sponge like tip. The eyeliner is finely milled powder and easily glides on the eyelids.
The application can be done as per your choice. You can either apply it thin or layer it to make it thicker. Disadvantages of this eyeliner would be it may fall out a little. Just dust little loose powder under your eyes and you will be good to go. Another negative is its staying power isn’t that great. You need to reapply it. But I am ok with that as it gives me a lovely smoky eye look.
No7 powder smoky eyeliner is available in three shades black, brown and gun metal. I picked up two shades black and gun metal. Black is the usual dark black eyeliner while gun metal is a nice dark grey colour which has tinzy minzy bits of glitter to it. This eyeliner can be used a normal eyeliner or even blended out into a smokey matte look. Both looks can be easily achieved thanks to the applicator which is much easier to use than a liquid liner.
My thoughts about No7 smoky powder eyeliner
Overall I thought investing in this eyeliner would be great. If you wish to achieve smokey eye look it will help you achieve that in seconds. The only negatives mentioned above can also be taken care of. Also, availability is an issue.
Ýes! Go ahead get your hands on this eyeliner.
