Review: Innisfree Shadow Pencil

28. October 2014

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 Shadow Pencil

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.

Innisfree Shadow Pencil

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

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?

    Very pretty! This seems like a very versatile shade that would go with almost anything.

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:24

      Exactly! It can be used for any look, it is neither too bright, nor too bold. And super quick and easy to use. Thanks for commenting :)

    This reminds me a lot of NYX’s Yogurt! Beautiful color!

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:25

      I didn’t try any products from NYX yet. But the color is really beautiful! Thanks for stopping by :)

      It is very similar but the NYX one doesn’t last…:(

  • Carina 29. October 2014 at 4:26

    YAY! Thank you for reviewing this! I might be heading off to Korea next week and was looking for new brands to try. :) This sounds totally up my alley!

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:26

      Ohh, I’m jelly that you can head off to Korea :D I would so much love to do so, too! Innisfree is really a nice brand, you should definitively try some of their products :)

  • Rini 29. October 2014 at 6:49

    I got one shade from this line and it’s my choice when I need super fast makeup done XD
    Though the twisting mechanic not so reliable, but I really like the texture and the colour. ^^

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:28

      I use this for my superfast makeuo in the morning, too. It is so easy to use. I didn’t have too many problems with the twisting mechansim yet, I hope it will stay like this :D But I could imagine to buy more shades from this product. Thanks for reading :)

    Oh, the crayon looks very lovely! I’m a total fan of Innisfree, I’m planning to order a batch of their skincare because I can’t find a good alternative locally (besides for the bodyshop but it’s so much pricier!). I’m glad you’re happy with the product! The name really suits the shade and I think it would look great on it’s own on the center of the lid to give your eyes a more awake look or as a highlight in the inner corners. :)

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:30

      Totally agree! I love their products, too, and I also had good experience with their skincare and it is really cheaper than bodyshop. This product is such a time saver in the morning and really gives you that highlightening and sparkling for your eyes. Thanks for commenting, Elina :)

  • Chic+And+Alluring+Blog 30. October 2014 at 0:48

    Wow, that is a really versatile shade! Quite pretty, too, even though it’s so basic/neutral. :o)

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:31

      Yes, totally! And since it is so neutral it can be used almost every day. Thanks for reading dear :)

    This stick reminds me of the maybelline cream eyeshadow! I totally love the color for daily makeup *-*

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:35

      You’re right, I recall they have a similar crayon. But I didn’t try it yet. The color is really suitable for daily wear. Thanks for reading and commenting :)

  • Bethany 4. November 2014 at 15:16

    Not the most exciting shade, but quite pretty all the same.

    • Frl. Schnee 17. November 2014 at 0:35

      That makes it even more usable for daily wear. It is so super quick to use, especially since it is so creamy :) Thanks for commenting :)

  • Evypark 19. June 2015 at 10:57

    Ah, I’ve got the same one! You’re right, it’s so versatile and it’s one of those rare colours that look good without any other makeup to match – as in no mascara, no eyeliner, nothing, just a slab of this to brighten the eyes. :)
    I also own Brown City, which actually compliments Milk Tea really well!
