Review: Illamasqua’s S.O.P.H.I.E. Eye Pencil

Product: Eye Pencil
Brand: Illamasqua
Price: $9.30aud from Beauty bay.com (13pounds /~20 aud on Illamasqua’s store)
Buy from: Illamasqua counters in selected Myers or Online

Long time readers will know my allegiance to the S.O.P.H.I.E. foundation. So when Illamasqua came up with their S.O.P.H.I.E. pencil, I couldn’t not buy it. Not to mention, $5 of each sale goes to the foundation, I had to do my bit.

But of course we want to know how the pencil holds up. Supporting a foundation is amazing, but the cherry on the cake would be if the pencil was amazing too.

I have to clarify something. I’m not big on pencils. I dislike the hard feeling of pencils on my eyes, and am forever paranoid that I will jab myself in the eye. I hate tightlining my eyes as I really do feel like I’m about to turn myself into cyclops. So actually using pencils is a huge thing for me.

Here’s what I think of it:

  • Creamy texture that is to-die-for. This didn’t hurt my skin at all and went on like butter. Hooray!
  • Quite pigmented so it doesn’t take a lot to create a nice black line. I do like my liners to do the work for me instead of the other way around.
  • As far as pencils go, I really like this one! If all pencils were like this, I’d actually start using pencil liners more.

  • Love it! My only regret is that I don’t have the S.O.P.H.I.E. wristband. The #MBBE girls got theirs at the Kelly Cutrone signing which I wasn’t able to attend personally although the Illamasqua girls very kindly help me obtain the book with a personalized signature to, so cue much envy as S.O.P.H.I.E. is my nominated charity and …. yeah.

    Anyways, would I repurchase this liner? Yes! It helps my nominated charity and it’s a fabulous liner. What’s not to like?

      I love pencil liners and am always on the look out. Thanks for this post, because I thought Illamasqua would be a lot dearer! Really want to try this one now, sounds great.

        I think it might actually be dearer on Aussie counters. Oh well, online shopping rocks!
