I almost always use a white eyeliner on my lower lashline (inner part). Prior to this pencil, I was using an NYC white pencil which I had to "color" my lashline several times over and over to get it to show up, and did not last that great.
This only requires 1-2 swipes, and of course, you can build it up by going over it a few more times, depending on the intensity you want. The great thing about this is that you don't have to apply a lot of pressure at all. I try to minimize pulling/tugging on my eyelids and eye area so I don't stretch the skin and create wrinkles, so any product that assists with that is great for me.
I believe these eyeliners were created for use on the inner lashline, so they are much more creamy and pigmented than a pencil eyeliner. I love that you don't have to sharpen it, saves time, and eliminates the risk of poking your eye with any pencil sharpening remnants.
The color is an opaque white, no shimmer/sparkles.
A tip I'd like to share is that you should apply this eyeliner before doing your other eye makeup (eyeshadows, top lid eyeliner) because for me, my eyes tend to water, even slightly, from the repeated actions/pressure to the eye area, thus making the waterline wetter. This causes the eyeliner go on sheerer. If you apply it before, the waterline will be dryer, and the color will stick better. Also, doing this gives it a chance to 'dry' sort of, and then you can go back over it again after doing the rest of your eye makeup to build up the color.
I believe I will repurchase this when it is finished, because there is no way I can go back to a basic white pencil after using this. Because a white eyeliner is part of my daily makeup routine, it is worth the investment for a quality product such as this.

I've tried a lot of white eyeliners, but none of them satisfied me. This is one isn't so great either, but it's the best I could find. I use it on my waterline and it's not very pigmented. It also looks chalky after a few hours. I'm pretty sure it looks great on other parts of the face though. I would only buy this again because good white eyeliners are hard to find and hey, the packaging is cute. It's also retractable so you don't have to sharpen it.
