I really like Korres and have quite a few products from the brand. That’s why I was so happy to find this value set of 3 pencils on sale at Sephora for only $10 a while ago (you may still be able to find it in some Sephora stores). I just had to get it!
The shades it came with:
- Soft Eyeliner 3S Light Blue
- Soft Eyeliner 5S Silver
- Eyeliner 10 Blue Black
Why I like Korres pencils…
It’s a natural brand with products that are “environmentally friendly and skin compatible.” I like the way the company describes these pencils: “Vitamin E nourishes and provides antioxidant benefits and Jojoba Oil hydrates and ensures a soft application with a creamy finish.”
The liners are soft and easy to use in a variety of ways, from cat eyes to lining the water line, smudging for a creamy or smokey effect, as well as with, on or under eyeshadows.
They’re also very easy to remove; you don’t even have to rub your eyes.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Even though this particular set is no longer available at Sephora, you may be able to find the pencils sold separately in stores or online at Sephora.com or Korres.com (from $16-18 each).
Not only have I used them on myself, but I’ve also used them on others. In my experience, they don’t irritate sensitive eyes.
I think all three of these particular colours are great ones for summer; the pale blue pencil is quite unique.
Like the others, it’s a dream to apply, going on smoothly and blending with ease. Even with one layer, the colour looks opaque.
You can create so many looks with these babes, from navy smokey eyes to trendy pastel looks for summer; or a futuristic silver look!
Light blue looks amazing on the waterline or paired with golden and turquoise shades. I think it also really makes brown eyes pop.
It’s important to note that Korres pencils don’t contain parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals, phthalates or GMOs.

What’s not to like about Korres pencils…
They don’t last long on the skin and disappear from the water line after a very short time, so they may not be the best choices for hot summer weather. On top of that, they also tend to crease.
I got these three pencils as a set a while ago, and if you don’t find the exact same set you could always get them individually for $16. I’ve noticed that Sephora often has different value sets that include Korres pencils.
Although I think these pencils have a few minuses, I still like them and would love to get some other shades, especially if I can find them in a value set.
