When I received my Birchbox the pencil was old and dried out, much like many people's sample. I contacted BB and got it sorted out, they send me a new pencil and that one was really smooth and pigmented. I have oily lids so I get a lot of transfer with the creamy pencils so no 5 stars but it would seem a really, really bad batch went out in the boxes last month and I think its not representative of the actual product which is really pretty decent.
Don't waste your money!
Sorry....Its just awful! I was expecting this to be as good as the Cynthia Rowley Beauty Eye-liner ...and its just not!! Was dry and scratchy to apply and the colour was streaky.
Save your money and buy the Cynthia Rowley Eye-liner from Birchbox!
Dried up lumpy what in earth is going in
Finally received my Birchbox , really looking forward to trying my Laura mercier eyeliner as I love the brand! to find this dried up pencil insert hand shrunken away from the sides of the pencil ! Not sight nor sound if the description of soft creamy formula ! But like dragging a sharp stone across my eyelid ! Now either they have been stored incorrectly or you have just sent out this load with full knowledge of doing so .
A bit dry
I'm not s huge fan of eye liner anyway but I love this brand so tried it. Didn't go on that well as was a bit dry. Looks like others had similar issues so maybe it was a bad batch. Wouldn't buy
Good colour but very light
Really like the violet colour but had to put on a few layers before it actually showed up on my eyes. I've seen that other reviewers have said that their sample was a bit dry, so not sure if that's why it isn't as heavy as I expected.
