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.

Blue eyeshadow?
Sampled

I really liked the concept but the color was electric blue. Would be great to be able to state colors that I would use

I don't normally wear eye shadow but this is a very pretty color and goes on quite smooth.

Good for a bit of sparkle
Sampled

The pencil is a good size, and the formula slides on well. There's a deal of shimmer, but the color (Tej) is too subtle for my tastes. I would consider other colors in the collection after testing if they had a bit more payoff.

Awful Color
Sampled

This eye shadow is a nice consistency and the pigment is great, however I have red hair and received the bright pink- which is probably the one color I could never wear.

Quick, Easy, and Pretty!
Sampled

I have to admit, I was a little freaked out when I saw a purple sparkly pencil in my birchbox, but this turned out to be a great product! It was perfect for a quick transition from work to happy hour. My only gripe is that it doesn't last very long and because the pencil is so think, it was hard to not get it on my lashes.

Don't love the pink :(
Sampled

I was happy to receive an eye shadow stick, but glittery pink eye shadow is not a good fit for me. It seems to hold up well, though, so I'd like to try it in a more neutral shade.

Nice shadow

This shadow pencil is great. Nice soft texture, great color, and easy application. I would consider getting this in another color

Beautiful and smooth
Sampled

I really liked this sample, even though I got an odd color (green) I still love the texture and pigmentation of this product. It is very similar to another high-end make-up colored eyeliner that I own, from a much more famous brand, and this is just as good.

Very creamy
Sampled

I really enjoyed this eyeshadow pencil. I got a weird khaki color that I think would've looked better on brown eyes but I have used it as a crease color.
