This is one of the best pencil liners I have ever used!! I know I say that a lot, but this liner has basically lasted me from May 2012 and is only halfway used in February 2013. This eyeliner has a great staying power and doesn't smudge. It stays on my waterline for my signature dark rimmed eyes. I'm so happy with this eyeliner. I got it for $5 at a beauty supply store somewhere and adore this.
