I like a bit

I like the pencil lip but don't care so much to sharpen them. Goes on nice

not for me

I like the idea = but it just doesn't work for me, comes off too easy and gets places - maybe there isnt a product like this for me out there, still have yet to find one.

Color doesn't glide on
SampledPurchased

If you want to try poking your eye out with a dried out marker experience and hope that after multiple times pressing against the lid, some color will show, then this is the product for you. I bought multiple shadow stick "crayons" in this order and am not a fan at all of this. In spite of their claim that it "glides on quickly" I can attest that it does not. I even tried writing on my hand and using a tissue in the hopes of getting a dry outer shell off, but saw no improvement after that. In fact, the little bit of color that did finally apply looked like a blob of caked on scales and didn't even smudge out nicely. Maybe it's just a bad batch as I did like the color but the lack of ease of use in application makes it not worthy of a spot in my makeup collection.

Dry and stubborn
Sampled

You have to press hard to get the product out. You don't want to do that to the most sensitive skin on your face. This product really dries out. I stored the sample I got (not entirely sure why I kept it...) and about 9-10 months later the outer layer was completely dry to the point that it wouldn't deposit any product on my hand. After scraping off the outermost layer of it, I was able to get some onto my hand and then my eye. Even when I first received the sample, it was hard to put on. Taking it off is a hassle as it is not water soluble. Nor does it react to friction. Must use some oil or oil-based product to remove it.

Prefer powder shadow

I received the gold shadow stick and was very impressed with the quality of the pigment. The main jam for me was that the color was difficult to blend and the product was kind of dry. I find it easier to use regular shadow with primer. Had the product been softer and easier to apply and blend, I would go through it in no time because the color was so beautiful.

I really wanted to like this...

I really wanted to like this full size sample I received. Unfortunately I found it extremely tough to apply to such sensitive area such as eyelid skin. It's almost like the product was too hard as I couldn't get it to apply smoothly.

Awful color
Sampled

Really wish I could have reviewed this with a nice color. It was an awful gold that I will never use. It was a nice sample size though.
