Eyepencil doesn't budge

So, I do hair in a busy los angeles salon. usually before I know it, my eye makeup is down at my lips. This eyeshadow pencil didn't move. I hate it when shadow settles in the crease. The color wasn't quite what I'd normally wear but I'm planning on checking out the other ones. Thanks Birchbox!!!

Ok, but too bold for me
Sampled

I really liked the powder, but the blue I received was way too bold for my style. I loved the texture and the easy to blend shadow, but I cannot bring myself to use this bright blue outside of the house. It feels too dark and a little like 1988...

eyeshadow pencil

I liked that the shadow pencil had glitter so it gave it an extra sparkle to my eyes. However, I only used it twice and the tip broke and fell off! :(

not the right color
Sampled

This is not the right color for me. Although I liked that the color is buildable or can be rubbed out to appear sheerer, this pink is not a flattering color.. and how do you sharpen it?

Bright but pretty

I tend to prefer powder shadows, but since this was in my box I figured I'd try it. I received Jasmin, the pink color. It is not really a baby pink, but more of a bright shade. At least on my fair skin it showed up hot pink. It was easy to blend, however, and I was able to tone it down a little bit with just my fingertips. Paired with navy liner it was flirty and great for a festival weekend.

Different Color

The bright shade of pink has me not loving this - wish it came in colors that I would actually use every day. However, the application of this eyeshadow was nice and went on smooth.

Just OK
Sampled

I received the green color in my April birch box. I did swatch the color and the consistency seemed very smooth and creamy but the color is something I would not use on my eyes. I have fair skin and brown eyes and usually stick to neutrals or purples. I want to say I wish I got a different color but all the colors seem to be a bit bright for my taste. I can see this working really well on someone with a darker complexion.

I love the thought of the pencil and the way it goes on, but unfortunately I received it in pink. Who wears pink eyeshadow? no me :(

ok but not a fan of the color
Sampled

I received the purple color in my box this month. What they describe as a "vivid violet" is a sheer pastel purple. Not gonna lie, I was not a fan of the color at all. I can't comment on the other colors, but this one was quite sheer without much color payoff. It was also very shimmery- too much for my liking really but someone else might not care. Much more shimmery than it appears in the stick however. I wore this over 8 hours without a primer, and I would say I have oily eyelids. There was a slight amount of creasing by then, but it was difficult to say for sure as it was so sheer. The coverage was not build-able as rather than adding another layer a second application would just start to remove the underlying layer. The pencil allowed a relatively easy application. I have a feeling that my opinion would've likely have been different with one of the more opaque colors. It smells terribly, but that really doesn't bother me for something I apply to my eye.
