Another Ulta find – their own Eye Crayon Set. I almost passed up on this one, but I really liked the colors they put in this multi pack. It is a set that includes 5 crayons that can be used as an eyeliner or as an eyeshadow.
The 5 colors in this set are Birthday Girl, Toasted, Rich, Wild Berry and Smoke Signals.
- Birthday Girl is a pretty frosty pale pink – GREAT highlighting pencil.
- Toasted is a shimmery Copper color
- Rich is a gorgeous shimmery Forrest green (this is one of my favorites)
- Wild Berry is a lighter pinky violet color with… you guessed it – shimmer! (another favorite)
- Smoke Signals is a deep shimmery silver.
I’m not a huge fan of most crayon eyeshadows – I do have oily lids and most crayon style shadows slip and slide all over my lid and within 3 hours ends up just gunking up in the crease of my eyelids. Not really a look I’m going for.
I mainly purchased these to use as eyeliners, but again, I don’t want a line imprint anywhere else on my eyes when I attempt these.
I put these on Saturday morning to test them. I wanted to do 2 colors at once and we had no plans to go anywhere so I could pack it on and see what happens. I tested Birthday Girl on my left eye and Rich on my right eye. I used Rich with Urban Decay Primer Potion and Birthday Girl without (to see if a primer would matter). At first I was like “Both are pretty colors, they glided on REALLY smooth!” Then 15 minutes later I was thinking “What the heck? Why do my lids feel itchy and like they are on fire??” I told Nick I had to get these off so take a pic NOW!
As you can see in the pictures, within 15-20 minutes they were already going wonky on my lids. There were bald spots in the center of my lid. I would test the other 3 colors, but honestly they irritated my lids so bad there is NO WAY I’m using them again. Ever. Even at the sale price of $7.99 they just weren’t worth it. Here are the pictures taken before I took Ulta Eye Crayons off (again 15-20 minutes after application). You can also see that a primer did diddly for it either.
I picked these up for $7.99 for a set at Ulta. They also sell Eye Crayons individually for $8.00 and are available in 20 different colors.
