I've used this eyeliner for 2 months, so I figured it's time for a review. I'm sorry to ruin the perfect score, but as with the Living Nature Conditioning Mascara (see my review in p'ville), I'm also disappointed with this product. I got the color in Flax Seed. What's great about this pencil eyeliner is that it glides so smoothly. Also, the color is a nice neutral brown, which I liked. The downside to this product is that it smudges like mad. It doesn't stay, and I don't really have oily lids. I should mention that I've I tested it alone on days when I'm staying home to really see whether I liked it or not, so the smudging isn't attributed to my mascara or other eye makeup products. I finally gave up after attending Orientation Day at Uni. It was a humid day, and the air felt damp. At the end of the day, I was horrified to see so much smudging under my eyes. I spoke with a lot of students/professors that day, so it was really embarassing. The Living Nature Eyeliner wasn't worth my time, money, and effort (I really tried to make it work). I can find a better eyeliner elsewhere that could at least withstand humidity. I won't be repurchasing. To sum up my review:
- All-natural, no chemicals
- Flax seed is a nice, neutral brown
- Not tugging, glides smoothly

I got mine in the darkest black - midnight.
It's perfect for smudging and it's all natural. It's a really nice dark black. Highly recommended!

These are soft and glide on smoothly and evenly, but they are well pigmented and not too soft (like Estee Lauders Artists eye pencil in black and plum, and Clarins waterproof eye pencils in black, which all crumble and smear). My favourite shade is "Smoulder". Its similar to Smashbox's cream liner in "Fan Club". The color is a perfect neutral color for enhancing blue/green eyes when black or dark brown looks too hard, and its fine shimmer gives eyes a subtle glossy glow! I don't need to wear any other makeup with this pencil it looks and stays on that good, even on my oily lids that challenge the best eyeliner brands. I also have Midnight (black) and Flax Seed (dark brown), both of these need eyeshadow to prevent transfer to my upper lids. I either wear powder eyeshadow on my lids or I top-set the eyeliner with eyeshadow if I wear the black or brown to prevent the transfer and smudging, but then again I have to do that with 99% of eyeliners I have ever used of any brand. Finally these are actually fairly good value as there is actually more pencil length than all the ones with smudgers on the end! (Estee Lauder, Almay or Revlon, Covergirl).
Flax Seed - Creamy Matte Dark Brown
Smoulder - Medium Khaki Taupe Brown with fine shimmer
Midnight - Charcoal Black, not jet black
River Stone - Matte Charcoal Grey with a hint of brown. More flattering than most greys

Fabulous! I have this in Smoulder, which is black with gold specks, which are pretty subtle. It's a soft pencil, and goes on nicely.
