I'm really on the fence about this item because it does perform quite well. It's the sharpening and application that are the problem. The tip is extremely soft so losing a lot of product while sharpening is inevitable. Also, application is something of an issue. I was unable to lightly darken my eyelash base because the tip of the pencil was so soft, it would clump up in my eyelashes and leave small chunks of product behind. These small chunks then run and smudge and create the worse case of panda eyes I've ever seen! If applying directly from the pencil, it's best to line the upper eyelid. If applying between eyelashes, at the base of the upper eyelid, then application MUST be done with an eyelash brush. This method provides the smoothest application, with minimal loss of product.
Aside from the above, the product does deliver on it's promise not to smudge, budge, move etc. It's a beautiful black intense color with silver flecks which highlight the eye nicely. There's a smudger on the end that allows for a really nice dramatic smokey eye WHICH.DOES.NOT.BUDGE if applied over a primer AND your eyes aren't prone to watering.
This eyeliner would be amazing in other colors. It is expensive though so I'm still on the fence about whether or not I'm going to repurchase this. For now I think I will because of the ease of carrying it along AND the fact that I don't have to worry about dry out like I would a cream eyeliner in a jar. But for the price, the pencil should definitely be longer and a sharpener, specifically designed for a pencil this soft, should be available.
