Mommy Makeup Glitter-It Pencils: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Hello everyone, today I have an exciting makeup brand to introduce to you! Mommy Makeup, founded by a busy mom and renowned makeup artist Debra Rubin-Roberts, provides a full line of easy to apply and long lasting makeup that perfectly fits into any woman's busy schedule.
Today I have two limited edition multi-tasking Glitter-It Pencils that can be used as eyeshadows, highlighters, cheek color, or lip color. To see some swatches and my review, click.......

The two colors I have are "Venus Sparkle", a lavender cream pencil with shimmer and glitter and "Lunar Sparkle", a soft white cream pencil with shimmer and glitter. The formula is very similar to traditional cream shadows, only that it comes in a retractable pencil form, which makes application more convenient.
Both pencils are very shimmery and have specks of silver glitter which makes application a tad gritty. The pigmentation is decent but I think these are intended to provide a subtle sheen as opposed to intense color. Also, I experienced a bit of creasing. Because of the relatively larger glitter bits, I personally would only use them on my lids and most likely as a shadow base because I think these could definitely help intensify pastel colored eyeshadows.

Overall, Glitter-It Pencils are a really fun and subtle way to add a bit of shimmer and sparkle to your eye makeup. Each of these go for $9.98, but there is a bundle deal of 3 for $15.24 (the Glitter-It Pencils are also available in two other colors, a light pink and a soft gold).
Mommy Makeup has a wonderful rewards program that gives you $1 back for every $10 you spend, and when you first sign up, you immediately receive $5 to spend on your first purchase.
