Great stuff! This is a retractable pencil that doesn't need to be sharpened. It goes on much like Clinique's eye liner (which I also like, but which costs much more) and the only down side is that it doesn't have a smudger on one end. Still, for these prices, who cares? I bought 'steel', a soft grey, and 'ocean', a pretty light blue that looks nice under my eyes. i would have bought more colors, but they were out of a lot of them!
