i got this on whim when i went to return tropic glaze gloss but they were out of the clear gloss i wanted so i picked this up instead. anyway, im so glad i did. at first i thought it looked questionable like it would smear smudge and budge all day long but after using it all over my lid as a base to hold a dark teal shadow and later a fuschia pigment i was pleasantly surprised at its amazing staying power. it didnt crease one bit! i wore it from 9 am until using my makeup remover at 9pm. i like it better than the mac sharkskin shadestick that i had before. easy to use, cheap & good quality. im going to try other shades!
Woohoo! I love this pencil! It's the perfect base for a smokey eye...I have to be a little careful not to smudge it when I'm packing powder e/s on over the top, but I don't wear a look like that everyday, so I can deal.
It's also great to use when I'm in a hurry (or lazy) and just line my eyes and smudge it a little bit. Add some mascara and I'm out the door.
It's nice and smooth going on, and I don't have any trouble with creasing, as I use a primer and put powder over the top.
This is a FABULOUS alternative to pricier items, and there are other colors that are fun to play with as well!
This is the black color of WnW'ds creme eyeshadow sticks. If you are familiar with them, you know they drop a lot of intense color, but can get a little messy. None the less, they are a blast to play with...especially at the price. And they are a way to make powder shadows pop and add vibrancy.
Graphite really reminds of a cream eyeshadow version of MAC Black Tied e/s. This is the perfect way to describe it. A smokey black (w/slight gray, blue hue to it) with some shimmer. It is beautiful. I put it on the lid and then dusted Black Tied over it and into the crease. Instant smokey, dark eye.
