I have this in Fresh FX, a gorgeous green with gold tones to it. This is like the cream shadow equivelent of Fyrinnae's Dragonskin, my favorite mineral pigment! I use this as a base under DS, and with this, it truly lives up to the name and looks vibrant, foiled and metallic even when applied dry. I haven't tried this with any other shadows, but I can't wait to experiment further. I just love the color, even when worn alone on my eyelid over Painterly and TFSI. I paid about a buck at a off the rack shop. This does not crease at all when worn over TFSI. I also have this in Surf blue, which I haven't tried yet, but I'm sure I'll love it as much as this one. I'd compare the consistency, which is creamy and easy to blend, to NYX jumbo pencils. If you ever get the chance, definitely grab some of these puppies up!

i have this in pretty fx, a very light, iridescent pink. i use this to highlight my lower lid. it looks really great on me, and makes my eyes look really wide awake and like i have the biggest eyes. it's really easy to use, and it lasts a pretty good while on me.
i heard that you have to buy a certain sharpener for this, but i have yet to even dent the point yet in the several times i've used this. when it comes to that time, i might try to pull the depotting trick that many ladies have used with their NYX jumbo pencils. much easier than buying something for a product that's LE. i bought this at the dollar store, but now looking back and knowing how much i liked it, i wish i had bought more. oh well. i'll find some online somewhere just in case :)

I got this product at the dollar store in 3 colors. Fresh (a dark, golden green with green flecks) Surf (a brilliant, rich blue with silver flecks) and Smokey (deep black with silver flecks)
-Because I got them at the dollar store they were super cheap. A quick Google search says they retail at about $3 which also isn't a bad price.
-The colors are really nice!
-Works well as a kind of shadow base
-Not a lot of staying power on it's own
-The odd size of the point doesn't fit standard sharpeners. The packaging said something about a sharpener by Maybelline that would work for these. I don't want to go out and buy a special sharpener just for this item which is limited edition anyway!
Overall not a bad product. I like the green and black as a base for a dark and smokey eye. I don't like it as a liner, the tip is just too big. I'm glad I only paid $1 for them because of the lack of staying power and the inability to use my standard sharpener on it.

I bought this in Bone FX awhile back and generally use it as a lower lid highlighter. I really like the shade and how easily the product applies, but the staying power isn't great. I would buy it again mainly because I've yet to find a replacement for the shade.
I use the pencil with normal large eye pencil sharpeners and while it's true that they don't seem to work so well, it does the job.

I found these at the Dollar Store as well. I bought them in Fiesta Fx and Amber FX, which are both pinks. I would not use these on my eyes because I don't think they would last very long, but strangely enough they work great on my lips! They don't feel heavy or sticky at all, which is great. If I found them again, I would buy them just for my lips.

I was at Dollar Tree and spotted these babies. I picked up the following colors: Highlifhgting FX (sheer white shimmer), Bone FX (sheer brown shimmer), Smokey FX (soft black)& Pretty FX (sheer pink shimmer). These say they are limited edition products. They go on very creamy and smooth but they don't actually set and tend to crease. I would probably "set" the color with a dusting of eyeshadows similar in shade. Also you have a buy a special sharpener for these. The pencil is encased in a soft plastic. I haven't sharpened them yet since they are new but the packaging states that you need to buy their certain sharpener just for these. How annoying. The shimmery colors go on very sheer but the smokey black is actually nicely pigmented. I like that one the best and will prolly use it up before the others. Overall they are fun tp play with but I won't get them again because ther are better products out there. You get what you pay for.
