I won these two colors during a giveaway on Jordana's Facebook. I am so glad I had a chance to try these out. They are only $3.99 and they only have a handful of colors at the moment but they are awesome. I can't wait to pick up the other colors. Hopefully they have a BOGO sale soon.
I would say they are about half the size of NYX's and ELF's Jumbo eyeshadow pencils. Similar to NYX's jumbo pencils these have to be sharpened once you use up the tip. I was hoping they were retractable pencils because let's face it.. it makes life much easier. I also feel like I waste a lot of product when I need to sharpen a pencil, don't you?
These pencils are creamy and glide on very well. They are not only pigmented but they blend out very nicely too! I recommend using your fingers to blend it out instead of a brush.
Just wanted to show you the colors on my skin. No primer.
- Truly lasts all day
- Water resistant
- Did not crease or budge
- Includes some neutral colors and bright colors
- Not retracable // needs to be sharpened
- 8 colors (not bad but more would be better!)
I absolutely love these pencils! They really did last me all day. While swatching them they did not budge or fade away when I did the smudge test & water test. They really are great for such an affordable price. If you are looking for something that will last and not budge I recommend you pick these up and add them to your collection. Just be sure you have an sharpener that the pencil will fit in.
So let's hear it readers, are you going to pick some up?! If you want to see swatches and dupes for them all you can check out Wang from DivaMakeupQueen's Video. She compares them to UD 24/7 pencils and shows the dupes for them as well.
