I dont have this in true black, only in almost black, but still is the eye-shading pencil.....so I am going to review that. This is really bad. This was and is my only first and last clinique purchase cause of GWP offer. I really wanted to try clinique cause it seems that i always see a crowd at the clinique counters, so I thought why not try this. WRONG. If all clinique products last as long as this, I wonder why is the company in business. I draw this pencil to fill in my brows and it does not last over 3-5 hours. Moreover, it doesnt apply smoothly even after you "warm" up the pencil prior to applying it. No longevity, no ease of application, overpriced = sorry, not my kind of product.
