Today I have the newest product from Sigma to review for you- the Extended Wear Eye Liners. I’m generally somewhat picky when it comes to eye pencils, because I really hate finding ones that are hard, pull on the skin, or have absolutely no color payoff, especially on the waterline. I like ultra creamy pencils that also have a long wearing ability. This can be sort of hard to come by, as it’s usually one or the other. I am happy to say that these pencils from Sigma fit the bill for both begin insanely creamy and easy to apply, but drying down and locking in place for hours (or days- I didn’t use a makeup remover to take off the last set of swatches here and it took a couple days to fully come off!). Here are swatches of all the pencils!
Enlighten is a bright, soft gold with loads of shimmer. One of my favorites here, would be a great lid color or putting a bit in the inner corner of a darker, smokey look to attract light.
Balance is a chocolate brown with gold shimmer.
Boost is a matte black, lush and creamy pencil that everyone needs. Seriously, it is rivaling my beloved UD Perversion. I never thought ANYTHING could rival that.
Smudge Brush E21 Smudge Brush that is great for blending out these liners if using them as a base.
Drift is a bright yellow gold. Very different from Enlightened from the Neutral Kit.
Downplay is a orange rust shade. Pretty unique, would be a fun addition to a warm smokey eye for blue eyes to pop!
Declare is an eggplant purple shade with shimmer.
Short Shader Brush E20. Wider Version of E21.
Focus is a duochrome green-brown. I’ve never seen an eyeliner in this shade! It’s super, super unique.
Electrify is a royal purple shimmer.
Flirt is a bright blue-green. I LOVE this shade. I used it in my next tutorial ;)
Pencil Brush E30.
Overall I gotta tell you, I am really, really happy with these. Ultra creamy, long lasting, they don’t even need an eyeshadow base if you are using them as a base for shadows. I’m really impressed with these, and for the price you really can’t get anything better. Comparable pencils cost over double the price of these, so I definitely say stock up (especially on that black pencil. Buy like 10 of them.)
Available for $33 (Kit with 3 liners and brush) or $9 each from Sigma.
