Review and Swatchfest: Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier in Bangalore and Ava

After hearing great reviews from those who received Sue Devitt's Eye Intensifier in their Birchbox, I new I had to give them a try! Plus, I'm always a sucker for a jumbo style eye pencil. The two shades I selected were Ava and Bangalore, the shades are describe in the captions below.

Ava - grape with light purple shimmer


Bangalore - a khaki green with gold shimmer


One thing that surprised me about these pencils was how unique the colors are. Urban Decay and NYX get all the glory when it comes to bright and uniquely colored eye pencils, but Sue can hold her own. As a liner, they are great on the upper lash line, but take some layering on the waterline and don't have great staying power. Still, on the lid, they stay until you are ready to take them off. These also perform well under shadows as an all over color primer. As with any pencil, it takes some blending with a finger, or other tool, to get even coverage on the entire lid, but it's so worth it once you do. Below is a tutorial I just posted where I use Bangalore under gold shadow to create a lovely antique gold color.

If, like me, you are a sucker for jumbo eye pencils, you would do well to try these. While there are more practical colors in the line, like black or brown, the colored liners are worth a peek as they are very wearable and would be a great way to spice up your look. You can find them at Birchbox.com and "Gold Reef" is on sale for $13 at Ulta.
