Another Innisfree product I bought during testerkorea’s brand sale, apart from the Innisfree Soy Essence Volume Mascara, is the Innisfree Shadow Pencil in “Milk Tea”. This is a eyeshadow crayon from the Innisfree summer collection 2014 and is supposed to help you to create a waterproof eye make-up in a quick way.
Innisfree is an eco-friendly Korean skincare and makeup brand focusing on natural ingredients and recycle packaging. The design of their products is simply and neat and nicely reflects the ideology of the brand. Innisfree products are ususally free from harmful ingredients. For the Innisfree Shadow Pencils, I didn’t find any specific information about the ingredients, but I believe that they will stick to their brand’s ideology. As you can see, the eyeshadow pencil has a simple, but yet cute design, by having some dots around one side of the pencil. I don’t know about you, but I usually fall for products with dots…(I have a lot of dotted clothes especially XD). One side of the pencil shows the color of the pencil, the other side – actually the side of the crayon- is protected by a clear plastic cap. The bottom side displaying the color is the twistable part of the pencil and enables to twist the crayon up. Also, the production date is printed on that side. Other than this, the descriptions on the crayon are in Korean.
I twisted up the pencil as much as possible, and you see that the crayon doesn’t contain much of the product actually. The bullet is around 3 cm maximum and the capacity of the pencil is 3.5 g. In total you’ll find 10 different shades of this crayon. There are quite some nice shades, which I would love to try, but at the time of the brand sale when I bought mine, most colors were sold out (now all are available again). The name of this shade (no.5) is quite pretty actually, because it is called “Milk Tea”. The color is swatched on the back of my hand below.
Innisfree Shadow Pencil in “Milk Tea” is a light brown and shimmery shade. The shadow doesn’t contain typical larger glitter particles though, but reminds me of a metallic kind of shimmer. The application of the pencil is amazingly creamy and soft. It glides super smoothly on the skin! ♥ The creamy texture is easily to blend, but once it is settled (1-2 minutes) it stays super solid on your skin. It is waterproof and doesn’t budge at all. If you don’t give it the time to settle, it may settle in your lines though. For such a light color the pigmentation is also great. I only did one stroke in the swatch above. Since it is waterproof and it builds a kind of film on your skin once it is dried, it is also long lasting. I absolutely love this eye shadow pencil. It is perfect for taking around, easy to apply, since you don’t need any brushes and it is long lasting…perfect! You can get these Innisfree Shadow Pencils from testerkorea for around 7 US$ (7200 Won). I’m thinking about getting some more shades, like “Cherry Blossoms”, a pink shade, or “Brown City”, a darker brown eyeshadow. Anybody else who has fallen in love with these shadow pencils?
