I have to give this product mixed reviews. I like the ease of the actual application and bold, vibrate colors. However, it is next to impossible to sharpen because the inside is very soft and breaks very easily. I found out that even though it comes with a sharpener, it does not sharpen well. I love the colors and the smoothness, but I was not able to use it because of the inconsistency of the the product. I found this happened with all of the pencils that I bought. I think you should try it for yourself and I hope you have more luck and a more positive experience.
I purchased this due to the great reviews, however I was not pleased with the results. It smudges after an hour leaving dark black under my eyes.
Exactly what I look for in an Eye Liner
Due to my visual impairment, applying eye liner can be somewhat difficult. I can't do liquid eye liner and I need self sharpening eye pencil. Although this doesn't self sharpen, I did try it out, having my boyfriend sharpen when necessary. They pencil goes on smooth and is quite strong in color. I do wish they had a self sharpening version.
I absolutely love this rose gold shade; I wear it quite often; it can be a subtle glint with a light application & the smudger. If you want a more intense color - apply with more pressure.
I do find it is very soft and does tend to break so I use an artist's palette when it crumbles and then I apply with a small eye shadow brush. Works like a charm and doesn't waste that precious color.
I ordered the purple shade and it is amazingly pretty. Not like so many liners that look kind of like a bruise. This stuff stays put, no smearing whatsoever and has a nice basic no-gell-y feeling. The best eyeliner I've bought in years.
