I've been using the same eyeliner for years and I very rarely try anything new, because if it ain't broke, well you know...anyway, I received this as a sample and firstly, I loved that it was full size! And I actually ran out of my regular liner asks grabbed this one. I was really pleasantly surprised how well it stayed and how saturated the color was. One thing I hate is an eyeliner that's pale. I haven't gone back to my old eyeliner since! The ONLY thing I didn't love is it doesn't sharpen great. But I put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes and sharpen it immediately after taking it out. Inconvenient, but I can deal for a nice sharp point.
