This eye pencil was very easy to apply and the color was bold. There wasn't as much shimmer as I was expecting, but I can over look that as long as the product will stay put. I always wear eyeliner and I have oily skin, so I am pretty picky. I want a product that will stay put. As far as an eye pencil, this stays pretty well. I did have to re-apply due to fading, but not nearly as much as typical eye pencils. It was easy to remove at the end of the day, just use some eye makeup remover and your good to go.
