Sumita Eyeshadow Pencils

Fun fact: There are reportedly 17,000 websites dedicated to Aishwarya Rai and her mesmerizing eyes. Snag a little bit of the Bollywood legend's look with these eye-brightening cream shadows from Indian-inspired brand Sumita. The easy-to-use pencils let you contour and line like a pro, while the pretty shades add instant drama. The long-lasting formula clings to lids and has a subtle (not over-the-top) shimmer.

This liner went on smooth but I wasn't too fond of the color I got in my box.

Already Broken
Purchased

The pencil tip broke before my second chance to use it. Obviously that's disappointing. The pencil tip will stay in place though if you hold it at the right angle.

Other than the broken tip, the shadow is pretty nice. The color isn't too dark. One swipe will give you just a touch of color. I imagine you could build on the color if you wanted to.

Not impressed. (Color; Tej)
Purchased

I like this color a lot, it's a very pretty pastel lilac that would look GREAT on blue eyes. But due to how this product applies, it's difficult to get it very vibrant. I had to press down to the point of discomfort on my eyes to get this pencil to apply at all, and even then it took several passes over to get noticeable color. On top of that, the pigment stick shifts somewhat inside the sharpenable casing, and it feels as though it will break off if I press too hard on one side or the other. I'm going to give it another try or two, but this eye shadow pencil is probably getting sent back.

Unimpressed

I received this pencil in TEJ and I was so excited to use it. Unfortunately, this pencil offers very little pigment. Even if I added a primer or applied a white backdrop for it to stand out against. It's also tough to apply. I wish it was creamier and more pigmented.

No staying power, very drying

I'm not a fan of these eyeshadow pencils from sumita.. they are great in concept, but they dont deliver... the color payoff is not great, they are generally dry and they wear off fairly quickly. Not a favorite :(

I was excited, but it broke...

I was really excited about using this when I got it in my Birchbox, but the first time I went to put it on, the entire tip broke off... I used it a little bit, and I loved the purple color, but it was too hard to apply with just a little nub in my fingers.

Not my color

I got this in my birchbox and it was a shade of greenish blue that I would never wear. I think it might be fun to play around with but definitely not for everyday wear.

Just crumbled away...

My very first time using it, it crumbled and fell down the sink.... I like the color well enough, so I might try it again. But, after my sample runs out, I'm going to just stick to putting on eye shadow the old fashioned way.

I didn't really like the color or the texture of this. It started clumping by the end of the day.
