There is nothing I can say that hasn't already been said. Amazing for the price! Beats my Nars Rue Bonaparte liner, and is creamier, easier to apply, and more versatile.
This is a great multi purpose pencil! I use it as a base for eyeshadow and to line my waterline. I also use this in the inner corner of my eye, or as a highlight under my eyebrow. I recommended it to my mom and she loves it too. Cruelty free, made in Germany, and only $3.99; Heck yes! Love it! Walgreens had these on sale last month for $2.99 (woot woot), so I picked up a back one to hold me over until another sale. Highly recommend!
I have been looking for a nude pencil that stays on my waterline for MONTHS. I have tried both high end and low end products and could not find anything that lasted more than 2-3 hours. UNTIL I MET CONTINUOUS ALMOND.
I LOVE THIS PENCIL. PUT IT ON YOUR WATERLINE. DO IT. NOW.
And the price? Can't be beat.
Also heard it be compared to mac's painterly pot - painterly. Just a heads up for those ladies who love eyeshadow.
When I bought this, I wasn't sure if I really needed it. Now it's a staple in my collection! Continuous Almond is pretty close to my NC15-20 skin, a bit lighter but good for brightening up or covering spots. It is creamier than any eye pencil I've ever used, yet is stays on for a long time. I can even use it as a spot concealer, and it has superb coverage and staying power! It is also great for lining the waterline for a wide awake look. But my favorite use for it is as an eyeshadow base. I draw some on my lid, and spread it with my finger to a thin layer. My eyeshadow goes on more pigmented, and it stays on for a long time without creasing. The actual pencil looks really professional, you would not think it was only $4. I believe they have the same exact packaging as Milani's Lip Flash pencils. My only qualm is that it needs to be sharpened. Other than that, I have only good things to say about this pencil! :)
This was a purchase that I didn't necessarily need, but I'm glad that I got it anyway. I wanted to try this out but felt that I already had similar products (MAC Painterly). This is so nice as a base. I like to just color it on my lids, blend out with my finger and then apply shadow. It doesn't crease on my dry eyes or make me look flakey. I use this on my lower waterline, too. I've even used it like a concealer to clean up my eyeshadow (make clean edges). Great product!
Such a versatile product to have! You can use it to brighten up your waterline, even out your eyelid colour/veins, and highlight certain parts of your face! I'm just uncertain on how to sharpen it but there are many videos on YouTube explaining how to with the NYX Jumbo eye pencils. Staying power is no joke! I bet you can use this to go swimming and it'll not budge! :D
I don't know why I waited so long to buy this, I guess I was scared it would be a flop. I was so wrong. I love this product so much. It's cheap, it cancels out redness on your lids, and it doesn't crease. This shade in particular is awesome. I will be trying the others!
I got this to even out the skin on my lids. But then, just out of curiousity, I ran it under my eyes as well. Nice match on my NW10-ish skin. So I put a little around the redness on my nose too. Not bad there either. I just accidentally found a multipurpose pencil to keep in my purse. Looks a little cakey, better if used right after moisturizing, but not bad considering it's not actually a concealer. lol
I plan on buying a few more to have as backups.
I LOVE this product and particularly this shade! These really last long! It works so good that i've replaced it over my MAC paintpot in soft ochre. I swear, these do not crease at all and stays all day on the lid. I can't say for oily lids as mine are not oily but still, it's a great product to try and it's inexpensive. I also have this in the white one and will be picking up all the other colors. It just works wonders as a base! A++++
Holy cow I cant believe I thought I was getting a bargain with the Milani shadow eyez in Almond Cream vs the Urban Decay pencils because this is the exact same stuff. Its so creamy makes a great base but even better stand alone evens my NC20 lids and brightens them. No more veins, dark, tired lids. I cover my entire lid from lashes to crease & sometimes even below my lower lash line to give it a botox like lift ! I've even used this to highlight & outline my lips to give an oomph to my otherwise nonexistant pout.
I would line my waterline with it but its too jumbo for that, if thats what your looking for Rimmel scandal eyes in Nude gives the wide eyed doll look. Needless to say I've returned my Milani & UD crayons. Hunt & stock these up, you wont regret these $3 steals.
UPDATE: I picked up the tenacious brown as well-dark chocoalte matte brown for lining below my lower lashes-seems to flake & spread after 8+ hrs. Its not terrible but I skip this use now & just line my upper lashes & smudge out for an effortless look, compliments my brown eyes well. I've also used this to contour my nose! Glides on easy & gives few minutes to blend it out with my fingers. Looks incredibly natural!
