Best eyeliner I've ever used! This applies so well and stays on all day.
It's incredibly creamy and pigmented and is the best eyeliner I've ever used on my water line. It is a bit pricey, so I only use it when I'm going somewhere special, or going to be out for a long time.
The only thing I don't like is that it requires sharpening. It applies best when it has a fine point, and in order to keep it sharp, you have to sharpen it frequently. This causes you to lose a lot of the product and go through it quickly.
This product could benefit from being an 'automatic' liner (the kind that you twist and the product comes out the top).

This product retails for $18.00 USD. But I purchased this in a set from Costco for $12, so check your Costco if they still carry it. This is a standard black eyeliner pencil which you have to sharpen. It sharpens easily with my inexpensive and expensive sharpeners. I find the black color quite pigmented. The great thing about this eyeliner is that it glides onto your eyes very easily! I didnít have to tug on my eyelid nor applied extra pressure to my waterline. The eyeliner smears everywhere. So, if you have hooded eyes, this eyeliner is a pain. So prepare to have panda eyes! In case you were wondering, I tried this with eye shadow primer as well and ended up with the same results. However, I donít want to throw this product out, so this product is great for creating a smoky eye look since it does blend very easily with a brush! So as a caveat, if you have oily or hooded lids, this will probably smear all over the place.

You REALLY need primer under this. You should always use primer. I use primer with everything. This is a dark, inky black that glides on and is easy to smudge/blur the line. This also makes it very forgiving, you can smudge off mistakes before it sets in. Doesn't pull or tug at my lids at all. Also, it's a soft pencil but doesn't get mushy and break off inside a sharpener.
Whether or not you will like this depends on want you want from it. If you are new to eyeliner and want black on your upper lids, this is good, because as I said, it's very forgiving and you can smudge any mistakes off with a cotton swab. On the top lid it will last if you use a primer.
If you want to blacken your waterline, this will show up VERY black, but you need to re-apply it every 2 or so hours because it fades.
If you like to line your lower lash line/lid, this is probably not the pencil for you. It tends to fade and may even run a little if your eyes water. Even with primer. The fading on the lower lash line is why I gave it 3 lippies. It's just not for what I'm looking for in a liner.

I wanted to love this product. It is an intense black. The pigmentation is beautiful. But it smudges like crrrrrazy. I have a tendency to touch my under eye area. Bad habit, i know. If I get a finger close to my lower lashline, this smudges everywhere. I have tried to set this with powder.. ANYTHING, but it smudges everywhere. I will just stick with my UD 24/7 pencil. Beautiful super dark black though!

I bought this because I heard it was an intense black. I tried it several times with the same end result, major smudgy, raccoon like eyes! I wanted to cry, after an hour this liner was under my lower lash line. You would have thought I just had a crying fit. I have never experienced this with any other liner. I gave it a few more tries but it was too embarrassing to wear this, it smudged every time.

I have several of these eye pencils, but this one is my favorite. The color transfers very easily onto the eyelid and onto the waterline. They wonít tug or end up ďskippingĒ when you apply them. The pigment is also very intense. These wonít give you a really precise line, so if thatís what you are looking for, I would go for a liquid or gel liner. Forget trying to do a cat eye effect. These really are just for smokey, intense looks. People with oily lids (like me) should definitely consider using a primer before using these pencils. I have found that really makes a difference. I also put a matching shadow on top of the liner to give it extra staying power. These are not waterproof. I usually stay away from these in the summer (I live in Southern California) because no matter what I do, they just melt off and I end up looking like Iíve been punched in both eyes, but great during the rest of the year.

I bought this eyeliner for my WL but it irritated and burns so badly that I can't use it for that. I've never had a problem with an eyeliner on my WL irritating my eyes and I've used all kinds. I started using this on my upper lids instead and found that I have to apply with a brush bc its too greasy and and smudgy with just the pencil. Even still, it ends up everywhere and I have to check my eyes every time im in the bathroom. I am not a fan of this eyeliner but I do like how black and dark it is.

I've never gotten raccoon eyes from this. This goes perfectly on my waterline. It goes on DARK which is what I want. It does fade after a few hours, but I just put more on. Not a big deal. I will definitely repurchase.

I use this on my waterline (upper and lower) and to lightly smudge on the lower lash line when doing a smoky eye. EXCELLENT color payoff on the waterline, without scratching yourself with a liner.
It's a kajal liner, so it WILL smudge if you use it on the upper lid, but it also blends really easily as opposed to a liquid liner.

I thought that based on the color payoff that this eyeliner was going to be amazing boy was I wrong.
I have hooded eyelids and it transfers all over the place :(
