When we did the primer comparison last time we got some questions about the Fat Pencils from Illamasqua, and decided to compare them so you'll get a peek of how they look.
The Fat Pencils are comparable with the Jumbo Pencils from NYX, but they are a bit drier, and all three of them contains shimmer.
We started with Perverse, since it is a lighter colour which one can use on the entire lid. The other two are much more pigmented and therefor might only be used up to the crease (unless you want to go bolder and up to the brow!) but they're still very beautiful and easy to use.
The way we use them is by simply draw lots of small lines with the Fat Pencil and smudge it out with a finger or brush.
We swatched the primers side by side and used the same eye shadow so you'll notice the difference between the primers. And never underestimate the fierceness of using a coloured primer!
Perverse is a killer to describe, since it has both silver and gold sheen in it.
Fickle has a bronzed tone with a warm tone.
Wilful is a rusty red-brown hue with metallic sheen
Time to compare them!
The eye shadow in use is Pure Pigment Furore from Illamasqua.
A nude peach shimmery pigment with lots of tiny sparkles!
It has been applied on the primers in the same order as before.

Pictures taken in two different angles since the shimmer made it difficult to see the undertone of the primers.
But boy aren't the result shifting between the primers!?
On the Lime Crime it got way more coverage than on bare skin, but on the Medusa Stick it! it got more creamy and glossy.
And it's easy to see the how the pigment changes in colour between the Fat Pencils.
On Perverse it got more golden.
On Fickle it got more of a browner tone, while on Wilful the result got a lot more redder.
Have you tried the Fat Pencils as primer? Or do you use it for anything else?
Hope you liked it!
