I love this stuff. However, know that this eyeliner is for smudging. If you don't smudge it intentionally, it will smudge itself after an hour anyways. The oversized crayon tip is just what I want for a smokey eye look. It makes it so easy to apply. I have it in Brown and this is that rare true brown- not nearly black, not weirdly chestnut, just brown. Lasts all day on me, though I notice that it does rub a bit of color onto my lower lash line. Nice that it comes with a sharpener, but I wish they would also include a rubber smudging tool on the end of the pencil.

I love this eye liner! The intensity of the color is great, goes on easily, doesn't smudge or smear, unless you do so intentionally to get that effect. I wore it on my waterline for the first time today and didn't have any problems. The result is exactly what I'm looking for. Love it and will definitely repurchase. I also like that it comes with a sharpener.

I feel like this product will be discontinued before the makeup consuming public will give it a chance. First off, yes this eyeliner smudges like crazy, BUT that's what Kohls/Kajals do. Yet I somehow manged to wear it in my waterline without too much issues. I should mention that I ALWAYS put some sort of loose kohl powder (l'oreal loose kohl powder) to set it. My eyeliner doesn't run this way and just lasts longer on my waterline or else within the hour I would look like a panda with a hangover, pretty much a hot mess. On my top lash line I can do a beautiful cat eye/ winged liner with this and I set it with black eyeshadow, and again no issue with smudging. Let it be known that I have extremely oily lids that require primer whether I'm wearing eye makeup or not, yup that oily. Perhaps, this is why I don't have issues with smudging with this eyeliner. I don't think I would repurchase only because I feel like this eyeliner would last a very long time and I already have over 20 black eyeliners. You can say I'm addicted to black eyeliners. The sharpener that comes with this eyeliner is such a nice added bonus. I almost feel that the sharpener alone is worth the cost, since I feel it's a very well made product. I also love the stubby size of this eyeliner, it gives me more control when doing my cat eye.

I don't like this stuff. I bought the purple one and I wish the colour was richer, I feel like it looks faded after a short while, like a matter of minutes. Plus, it smudges like no other, I mean after I've just been sitting talking for an hour, I look in the mirror and it's already began to move. I would like to toss this.

Overall, this is a pretty good eyeliner. Its very dark and easy to apply. I even really enjoy its chunky size. A lot of people might not like that its like holding a children's crayon, but I think it helps steady my hand. My only complaint is that without any kind of primer, this eyeliner transfers to my top lid A LOT. I use Urban Decay's Primer Potion, and this eyeliner stays put.
I probably won't purchase it again, though. This is only because there are other eyeliners I prefer more.

This is gunna be my second bad review. Lemme just say upfront if you have a problem with any other kind of eyeliner "melting and smearing" on you...DO NOT buy this one (hello raccoon eyes). Yes it smudges easily and the formula is really silky and glides on effortlessly. Too bad it doesn't stay where you place it, no matter what. I would not recommend this to anyone. Save your money or buy something else.

I purchased this in Brown, and it is a very deep black/brown. It comes with a sharpener. Less expensive than Sue Devitt and some other chubby pencils. It does smudge which it is supposed to do like other kohl/kajal style pencils. I find it hard to control applying it though. Sometimes it goes on smooth, and other times it "skips" going on. Unfortunately, it also started irritating my eyes and I had to discontinue wearing it. Note: I do not wear contact lenses or used it on the waterline of my eyes.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I have the brown and it IS dark, similar to Lancome Black Coffee and Sue Devitt's Kenya for me. But much more affordable and would repurchase for that reason mainly! So far it seems to wear well.

I like it. I use it. However, I don't like it enough or use it enough to ever buy it again. That's all that I will say about it.

Love how black this kjal style pencil is! And it is the perfect blend of hard to soft. Slips on like a dream and stays put, even on my rather oily lids. I've wanted to purchase the Guerlain version for a while. This one comes in at a mere fraction of the cost and is great! Would repurchase and may hunt down the violet one soon.

I bought this in grey. Since this is my only grey liner, I will keep it. I like the creamy texture of the pencil. I like the way that it feels in my hand when I apply it. It's easy to use. However, because I have hooded eyes. this is not the best product for me. It does transfer quite a bit to my upper lid.
Edit: This works really well when it's smudged. I used it the other day after blending it out with a brush. It stayed really well and was very pretty.

I have this in green &I really like it, this is a kajal inspired liner and says so on the packaging. Kajals are for smudging, and are not the best for the water line, it may irritate and definitely will run. I line my upper and lower lash line & smudge out, the color is awesome, I'll be purchasing the black and brown too.

I bought the brown one and it actually is very soft and easily workable. Its a deep brown, lots of color pay off and this easily smudges for a smokier look!

I got this in black and I thought I would love it. I like how it applied and the color was rich and dark. But...it smudged pretty badly on me. I happeed to look in a mirror a few hours later and had rings under my eyes. Not good. So, I like the concept, I just wish it had better staying power. meh.

I have this in the Brown shade and it's a very dark, espresso, almost-black brown which is what I like because my eyes are very dark brown and lighter brown eyeliner looks strange on me (black eyeliner just makes me look like a floozy). It's soft enough to go on easily with no tugging, but it may be just a smidge too soft because it does smudge after a few hours of wear and if I use a smudger brush to smudge the line when I apply, it basically just smudges off completely. It is a deep color so I see why the "Smoldering" name is appropriate. I like the color so much that I would probably repurchase.

I love pencil eyeliners and was excited to try this new one. I'm not impressed. This is "Brown" but looks to be black on me. One of those dark browns that looks black on like a lot of others I've tried on my super-white skin.
I've tried this a few times the past week and right away I have big smudges on my eyelids and it starts to smudge underneath.
In the garbage it goes!

UPDATE: I'm upping this to 4 lippies. I love the fact that it is SO dark, yet not quite like a black liner. I don't know about smudging because I always wear it with primer and e/s, so it wasn't and issue. I really want to try the gray and the violet ones. They are also very dark, which is fine by me. I hate light-color liners. They do NOTHING for me (lilac, gold, silver e/l? Are you kidding me?)
Got to agree with the previous poster. This is an ok pencil, but nothing extraordinary. I have it in brown. It's a nice, dark brown. Not the wishy-washy kind. But I have a Privilege pencil that is cheaper, the color is the same, and it works the same way as this one.
I don't mind the package and I haven't used the sharpener yet (the point is quite long and pointy). I much prefer L'Oreal's Le Crayon Kohl in Carbon Black, and Brown. Much creamier, darker, and longer wearing. I'll keep this, but I won't repurchase.

Overall, it is an ok eyeliner - nothing to write home about. It is as black as Urban Decay Liner in Zero. It is a bit dry but it doesn't tug on the eye lid when applying. The UD 24/7 liners are a bit more creamy. I also find the lasting power of UD liners are better--more long wearing.
When I put it on my upper waterline it does bleed down to the lower lash line. I look like a raccoon within an hour. Not good!
I'm not a fan of the packaging. It comes in fat pencil like NYX Jumbo pencils. L'Oreal was nice enough to include an oversize sharpener.
L'Oreal boasts that the shape of the liner is "perfectly shaped to glide on the top and lower lash line for dramatic shaping and contouring". I really don't think the shape is any more beneficial than any other eyeliner that is sharpened well.
In all, I wouldn't repurchase but will likely use the liner up. It is just ok - meh.
