I did a quick little video on Illamasqua Medium Pencils in Vow, Bait and Debonair. My initial thoughts on the product are that they’ve got great pigmentation, I like the colors I purchased, and they’re easy to apply. I’m still testing wear time, but I thought I’d provide you with this video and swatches to tide you over.

Tips on Usage from Illamasqua:
Apply directly onto the skin to create bold lines, or alternatively apply on the palm of the hand and blend using the appropriate brush for the desired effect. Use shorter bristled brushes for an intense controlled colour pay-off and longer bristled brushes for softer diffused effects. Medium Pencil can also be used inside the waterline.
So far I’ve tried it on my waterline, lower lash line, lips and hands.

I haven’t tried them yet but have been looking at them longingly….
so far the colors are great, I’m just not sure on the wear time yet. My lower lash line stayed fine but I forgot to check my waterline. My lips were fine, too.
this is interesting, it’s the first time someone I trust talks about Illamasqua’s pencils… thank you!
bright sky blue yay! I was looking at these at sephora online and I was wondering if they were lip safe. Is the texture comfortable on the lips though, I imagine if it’s used in the eyes it would be a sticky texture?
When I use it, my eyes looks beautiful. Green color and pink color are my favorite in this product. It makes my eyes looks great.
