My thoughts
I love how Sigma has released individual pencils and kits and how they’ve labeled warm, neutral and cool colors. Each kit comes with an exclusive brush. I’ve got E20 Short Shader that came with the warm kit. It’s perfect for blending out the shade on your lids for a sexy smoldering effect.

The pencils are soft, creamy and go on smooth without tugging or skipping. Since the tip is soft, I suggest keeping a light hand during application so it doesn’t break. Also, you need to sharpen every time for a thin stroke.

All eye liners are metallic except 'Boost' – a rich matte black. The metallic shades aren’t as pigmented as I had hoped for however, I discovered that these are quite buildable actually. After the first layer sets, I simply put on a second one to make it appear more intense. The second stroke applies just as effortlessly as the first so no complaints. I like the fact that they apply wonderfully over an eyeshadow. You could also wear these alone if you desire.

Once it's set, the color doesn’t smear and lasts all day which is brilliant however, if you rub your eyes too hard, you might notice some loss of color. I tried on my water line where it fades after a couple of hours which isn't so bad. My favorite ones are Boost, Electrify, Flirt, Declare and Enlighten.

Overall, I really like these pencils! Colored eye liners are fun so I know I'd be reaching for them a lot this season.

  1. Nice review Sara! Have you tried the Avon Gel Eyeliner Pencils and Milani Shadow Eyez 12 HR Pencil? Great smudge-proof results with those as well :)

  7. Sigma's eye shadows turned me off a bit but I think I am gonna order these liners for me. I prefer a pop of color using liners instead of shadows when I am in hurry. Thanks for the review. xx
