nice, but not for me!
Sampled

my sample was a golden bronze color and just looked weird on my eyes and with my light pale-ish winter skin. probably a great product for darker skin. not too crazy about the texture, i like thicker, darker, more opaque eye liners. if you're gonna go gold, make it bold!

Nothing special
Sampled

I used it when I forgot to take my regular makup bag. It was nothing special, golor is ok, texture is pretty smooth, didn't stay in one place during the day - was all over my eye lids.

Very Soft
Sampled

I am used to using liquid so this was different for me. The color was OK but it was very soft to apply, possibly better for smudging than for a crisp line if that is what you prefer.

Pretty, but Nothing Special
Sampled

While I did like the color I received, I didn't find this pencil to be particularly amazing. I have pencils by drugstore brands that work as well or even better. I don't think I would pay full price for this pencil, as nothing about it stood out as luxury.

Nice color and texture
Sampled

This eyeliner goes on smoothly. I received the "Jaipur Gold" color and it is gorgeous. It is a little different than your normal brown/black/blue eyeliner, without being too bright for everyday use. And, I have very sensitive eyes and it didn't cause irritation. I took off stars because of its functionality - when I tried to blend the edges it all just wiped off. So, if you want a defined line, it'll do, but if you like to blur the line between your liner and shadow, it won't do that.

Good color
Sampled

The color was pretty, but the consistency of the pencil was lacking. It didn't glide along my eyelid like I wanted. Also, I was hoping it would smudge a little easier so I could blend it. If you are better with eyeliner and looking for that harsh solid line, this would be perfect for you. Not great if you are looking for a smudged smokier look.

For someone who doesn't wear make-up
Sampled

This product way OK for myself. I don't wear a lot of make-up so, eyeshadow is something I normally don't wear. But It was extremely easy to apply and I would use it again for a special event. I didn't like the smell, mainly because it smelled like chalk. At least it did to me.

Too waxy
Sampled

The color of my sample was fine, but it felt like I was using a Crayola on my eyelids. It didn't appeal to me -- might be good for others who aren't as sensitive to texture.

Pretty Color
Sampled

Normally I would like a more basic color but this product is great. I'm glad that I was given this sample because I generally wouldn't spend money on a color so bold. Thanks Birchbox!!

Hated the color
Sampled

I hated the color so much, it was this horrible greenish color and it was so bad I refused to walk out of the house looking like that! No thank you! Who chooses colors like these? Ugh!
