Estee Lauder Artist’s Eye Pencil Soft Smudge Black Review

Estee Lauder Artist’s Eye Pencil in Soft Smudge Black

Like the Estee Lauder Artist’s Lip Pencil even this Eye Pencil came with an Estee Lauder kit. I have many black eye pencils and this was just added on to the collection. Ok, now I am not boasting here, I am just reminding myself that it is time to try more colors in eye pencils. As the name suggests this is just a soft black and not something that is very bold or dark.

The Estee Lauder eye pencil comes in a sleek dark blue packaging with a gold lid. This eye pencil usually comes with a smudger brush but the one I have does not have a brush, might be because it came in a kit. From the name I thought I can smudge this one and use for a smokey eye look but lol no, it is just the name of the shade and nothing to do with the effect. This eye pencil is completely smudge proof but on applying a thick line gives a smudged effect. I feel this makes the work simple 😉

I use it on my upper lash line, lower lash line and also my water line, it does not sting at all and does not smudge until I wipe it to remove it. Also I prefer to use it on my upper lash line as it does not give a great effect on lower lash or water line. I expect a very bold black for my lower lash line and water line so this one does not serve the purpose. I doubt that whether these pencils are meant only for the upper lash line. I am not very sure about it.

• Does not smudge at all.
• If you want a light black color on your eyes then this is the one for you.
• Easily glides on the eyes.
• Does not sting.
• Comes with a brush when bought individually.
• Layering it gives a good smokey eye look and reduces the effort of smudging 😉


• Just 3 shades to choose from.
• Very expensive.
• I don’t prefer such soft color so not a favourite for me.
• Availability.

My Rating – 3/5

Would I Repurchase – Though it is a good eye pencil this one is not for me. I love super dark black for my eyes always.

  1. I absolutely adore this! My sister got it for me 2 years back .. and i absolutely love this pencil. glides on so smoothly and stays put all day. totally worth the price. but i guess they’ve changed the packing now. it’s a glide on type and not the wooden type,anymore. :pompom:
