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.
