I have this in #13 Brown Velvet. It goes on easily and smudges easily, perhaps too much. I only line the top lid, but within an hour or two I have smudges all over my eyebags. As someone who doesn't want to have to do retouches throughout the day, this is not a good product.

Great eyeliner, it goes on really easily. It's very soft too. I like it. The only thing I don't like though, is that it doesn't have great staying power. Maybe like 3 hours. But that's okay! It's just a really good eyeliner. A little expensive.

I actually use this more for an eyebrow pencil cos its so soft. It seems to fade after a while..which annoyed me, after 4 - 5 hours, it was gone, like it had dissapeared. The texture of the pencil is smooth and nice to draw with. The colour is good to, but for the price, I'm sure other liners would be just as good. I would buy again because it makes such a nice and natural eyebrow pencil.

it's alright, i like it in general but my under eye is a bit oily so its smudges and i always have to wipe under my eyes cause ill look like a racoon. ahhh...still on the look out for the perfect black non smudgy pencil eyeliner

A very nice eyeliner. I liked its slightly creamy texture which made application beautifully easy. The colour was strong and lasted well but it could get a little greasy if I applied it in a rush. There was very little to dislike but for me it wasn't really a 'wow factor' eyeliner.

Favourite eyeliner.. found my one of my HG's lol
probably a cross between a cream eyeliner and a stubborn pencil - as intimidating as it sounds turns out to be a very good mixture.
It can be layered on for a extra dramatic effect or a light coating for subtle definition.
Good for waterline too because there's no fall back into the lash line.
Two thumbs up from me, or should i say 5 lippies =P
wow i'm lame sometimes hahaha

Pretty awesome eyeliner and really stays on.

It is ok. I would expect more from a department store brand.

I don't know why so many people say this gives them raccoon eyes - this is one of the few eyeliners that HASN'T done that to me, and I have really oily eyelids! In fact, since it's pricey I keep trying other brands (even those that say they're waterproof or budgeproof) and I keep getting disappointed when half of it ends up under my eyes. Thankfully this eyeliner (I get it in black) lasts a pretty long time, so the investment is worth it. I'd rather it be self-sharpening, but that would probably hike the price up another $10.

My mom gave me several of these eyeliners. I see that there are many good reviews for these but I think they are awful. Yesterday I tried the blue one, which ended up just a smeary, oily mess around my eyes. Today I have had the softsmudge black - I have only had it on for about a half hour and it is already a smeary mess around my eyes (I powdered and used my eye primer like I always do). These apply without tugging, which is nice but that's about all I can say. The texture of the pencil itself is so soft that there is no staying power, and the tip breaks off in the sharpener. I will stick to my Mary Kay eyeliners which I suggest others try as well. The MK eyeliners apply without tugging, they are blendable, they stay put, and the color of the pencil is the color you get and they are under $10.

I love these eyeliners because the full sized product has the sponge tip which is amazing for smudging. Very very handy. I use the sponge tip almost everyday, regardless of whether or not I actually use this brand of eyeliner or not. I find the eyeliner to be of good quality, does everything I expect of an eyeliner. Will continue to purchase.

I have this pencil in Blue Iris, which is a great color for a pick-me-up, since it tends to make my eyes look whiter and de-emphasize redness in the eye area. I also wear a lot of navy clothes and like a dark blue liner with that. This performs well. It's soft and easy to draw on, smudges easily for a smoky look, and lasts until I take it off. I haven't had problems with smearing, flaking or any of the typical eyeliner pitfalls. The only thing I don't like is that I have to sharpen it. I like the twist-up kind best because they're the softest and just more convenient. This does sharpen easily, however. I haven't had the tip break off in the sharpener and waste a bunch of product, at least not yet. I do love the little smudger. These seemed superfluous to me at first; I mean, I do have fingers, but it works so much more precisely than a fingertip and it's still quite gentle on the eyelid. I find myself borrowing the smudger to use on eyeliners that don't include one.

I have this in a brown shade, it's a nice chocolaty color. It is creamy and smooths on nicely, but it just doesn't stay on that well. I got this gwp and I wouldn't buy it because there are a lot of better quality eyeliners for a fraction of the price.

Bless Estee Lauder for always including this quaint little pencil in their gifts with purchase. Black eyeliner, in my opinion, is about as universal as it gets! This is a very intense black that glides on easily without any tugging or skips. Like all kohls, it does smudge very easily as well (as if the name didnít already imply that!). But I suppose the smudge-ability factor makes it an excellent eye pencil for creating the smoky eye. Iíve never specifically bought this eye kohl on its own because as I have mentioned Ė itís always been passed on to me through GWP deals or swaps. I donít think I would exactly buy this on its own since there are a slew of eye kohls out there, cheaper retail-wise. But this is an all right eye pencil indeed!

I love this eye liner and the staying power of this eye liner. I will repurchase this again, even though this is an expensive item. I have the GWP and this lasts a long time and I will get the brown when the GWP is used.

I got this in Softsmudge Black as a gift; I've had the same pencil for 3 years now (I use it sparingly). It glides onto the upper lid well, and the smudger is effective. It settles into a sexy smudgy line after a few hours. But it's pretty average; you can get drugstore liners that look and feel just as nice (I'm cheap, though). Also, it doesn't wear well in the rim; it smudges on me there, even when I set with powder.

I bought this in 01 Indigo. It goes on fairly well but doesn't last that well on me. Also despite breaking off the end, resharpening and sterilising, I seem to get an eye infection every time I use this. Needless to say, it's now in the bin.

I have this in Softsmudge Black, and this is indeed a good smudger for a shadow or smoky-eye effect. However, it transfers to my under eye area easily so it's not practical for me to wear. The pencil has a soft and creamy texture that's easy to apply.

Over the years I have had a million (okay, give or take a few) of these pencils. I long ago became disenchanted with Estee Lauder in general, but I find myself going back to these pencils. I discovered Khaki (which is an olivey-green color with just the faintest gold flecks) back in high school. I'm 27 now and keep going back to it. I'll go through phases where I forget about it and then I'll rediscover it and fall in love all over again. I have very dark brown eyes and Khaki is absolutely perfect for when I just need a little definition.
These pencils *are* a bit smudgy and this is a bigger problem with deeper shades. While my Khaki looks great because it's not very dark, I've bought other colors in this pencil did not wear well at all. I have Walnut Brown and it's okay but not a holy grail product for me. I really like Hyacinth Sky. I had Amethyst and Plum Grey, but when I wore them the rims of my eyes looked very red.
One thing I really like about these pencils is that you can buy the refills for $11 USD instead of having to buy the whole pencil every time you want a new color. The initial pencil purchase is about $22, but once you have the pencil the refills can be switched in and out. I don't use the smudger, so I typically have a different eyeliner color in either end. The EL lipliners (which I don't really love) fit in the eye pencils and vice versa.

I have this in SoftSmudgeBlack. As the name says, it does really smudge well and goes on 'very' black. It's very soft to use and draws smoothly, but I think it performs its "smudging" job maybe too well. It's terrible to use as an underliner since it'll definitely give you raccoon eyes. But I guess it wasn't made for that. Anyway, this is a great smudging, black eye liner if that's exactly what you want to achieve.
