I bought this to use as a think eyeliner, I ended up not really liking it that way, however I found a really great use for it....I use the gel eyeliner on my water line and then put this crayon/pencil over the top of it an it stays so much better. It's a cheap product I def will keep around

I think this is a must-have for smokey eye looks. It's a great base for black shadows especially - helps them POP. I always apply UDPP before putting this on to help prevent creasing. The downside to this is that it can smudge everywhere and get messy because of the creaminess. I always have my concealer handy when I use this. I first dab the pencil onto my eyelid. Then I use a dome brush to spread and even it out. After this, I use a blending brush to smooth out the edges and a concealer to define them. Now I can continue apply the rest of my shadows. It takes a little bit of work, but the end result is always fabulous. I think this is a great product overall.

I have about a million and one uses for this pencil, so im suprised a lot of people hate it or cant find uses for it. First of yes u need a primer but... I put a primer under everything that goes on my eyes! Anyway the main way I use this is as a base under any eyeshadow that I want to give an extra layer of depth or smokiness to. Seriously play with this color on your hand put a sparkly pink, or a matte lime green or an ocean blue over it and you will see what im talking about. I also use this as an eyeline, not straight from the pencil because it is jumbo, so I use an angled eyeliner brush. And last but not least I use this as a very rock and roll dont give a sh*t smokey eye. Yes I still use a primer but this pencil has a nice sheen to it that looks lovely for that look and while I dont find too many issues with creasing whatever creasing I do get just fits into that look perfectly and all I do is layer and smudge, layer smudge and layer and smudge again, take the pencil and go underneath the eye and smudge that add falsies and voila glam rock in 5 min. Explore your options with the tools you have ladies, you may just find you love a product you once hated or that everyone else hates. Good luck!

OBSESSED! I got this product for a base for a black classic smokey and it's perfect. It's soo easy to blend. It has a great color and build able color. It also keeps shadows going over it on all day so great base. And really shows off the colors used with it. I in love.

Quick smokey eye must have
Price: $7 CAD
Colour: soft black
So for a super quick and easy smokey eye, I apply this along my top and bottom lashline, smudge them out with fingers, top it with silver e/s and put dark grey in the crease.

I LOVE this pencil for my water line!! I was previously using the regular NYX eyeliner pencil but sometimes my eyelids wouldn't grasp the color. I don't know how to explain it but I would have patches on some areas where the liner wouldn't stay and no matter how many times I would go over it I couldn't fix it.. Well I don't have that problem anymore now that I switched to this pencil. I love it for that and it lasts a long time on my waterline, it doesn't run down as quick as other I've tried. I just wish it was in a regular pencil form but other than that it's great!

My makeup routine would not be complete without NYX Black Bean. I use this product every single day. This is what I use for eyeliner. I apply a L'oreal pencil first, then I use this on my water line. It literally lasts all day long. I could not make it without this product! Better than any eyeliner out there.

Great base for smokey eyes - it never creased on me.
I sometimes use it as eyeliner on top of which I apply an eyeshadow.
Not a big fan of the packaging, as it tends to get messy, but that's not a big problem.
Would buy again.

Good base for smokey eyes, but it creases on me unless I wear the Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath and apply a thin layer of the jumbo eye pencil on top. By thin, I really do mean thin! Too thick and even set with shadow on top, it will crease sometimes. Very pigmented and has a matte finish. Good universal shade for many smokey eye looks.

I use this as a base for smokey eyes! (especially for NYX's smokey eyes palette.) I love it. It doesn't crease on me when I use TFSI primer. I don't think I've used it without first applying a primer. I would buy again!
