Sue Devitt Kenya Eye Intensifier Pencil

Sue Devitt Kenya Eye Intensifier Pencil is as basic as they get. A true dark chocolate brown with a creamy texture and finish. Kenya has no shimmer or multidimensional undertones: what you see is what you get, and you're free to use it any way you see fit.

Sue Devitt's Eye Intensifier pencils are on the chubby side, so when I want to use a color such as Kenya as a true liner I pick up the color with a thin brush. But you can also draw right with the pencil if you're doing a smoky eye and blend with the built-in sponge tip (I do that, but also finish the blending with a brush to make sure the pigment is spread evenly). I also use the pencils (including Kenya) as a base for powder eye shadows and have always admired the way these Sue Devitt pencils stay put without creasing or migrating despite their creaminess.

Bottom Line: a workhorse.

Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencil ($22) comes in 13 colors and available from Barneys, Bloomingdale's, Ulta and suedevittbeauty.com. I was sent Kenya free of charge by the company's PR.

  1. SD is one my favourite eye pencils ever. Also like and use the cle de peau black liner in a pot with a retractable brush. Thanks for the review Gaia.
