This very soft eye pencil goes on just like you want it to, soft and creamy, no tugging or scraping your eyelids. I have it in black as a gift with purchase. It looks awesome, however-----after half an hour it smears and is on my lower lids, and is just so soft that it is everywhere and the line is messy. So sad, because as I said it looks awesome and is nice to apply. But really, the trade off is a mess after a very short while.
I will stick to gel for now. Why can't they make something soft to apply, that dries to a smudgeproof finish?

It's hard to review this product because as an eyeliner, I really hated it. But as a brow definer, I'm LOVING it! On my eyes this smudged badly, the color didn't stay put at all and the pay-off was bad. But on my eyebrows this stuff is wonderful! It stays really well, it doesn't smudge, it gives just the right amount of soft color and it is so incredibly easy to use. Packaging is nice too :) Plus this one pen lasts forever..(almost).

I just got this last week. I never tried Lancome's eyeliners but I'm so glad I did. Sooo easy to apply and goes on smoothly, no tugging or pulling. Love the color. Looks great. 24 dollars but worth it b/c pencil is super long, will last you forever.

My friend gave me the sample sized eyeliner in Noir and I really like it. I've had this pencil for about 10 months, i use it a few times a week and it is virtually the same length as when it started! I like how its soft to apply and it is quite pigmented (although i think there are blacker eyeliners out there). It's easy to draw thick or thin lines with this pencil. The biggest con is that doesn't stay put for the whole day - by the end of the day i can't really see it and its leaked down to under my lower lashline (it kinda looks nice actually but thats just me lol). Overall, this eyeliner looks great when you first put it on, it may need a primer to stay put. It's a decent eyeliner but I would not buy it because I'd like something even blacker than this on my dark skin.

The formula makes it so easy to apply. I got this in Black Lapis, which is a turquoise navy (if that makes any sense). The navy actually looks nice with green eyes.

I figured it's much more useful to review 7 different pencil liners at the same time. For reference, I'm Asian, my eyes are not hooded and are very sensitive. I wear contacts and my seasonal allergies go berserk when spring comes, so they get really watery and itchy. I never wear liner alone--always with eyeshadow primer and eyeshadow. The bottoms of my lids are not oily. The objective was to test out how these liners wear on the waterline


This liner definitely STAYS put. Just watch out if you're crying--then it can get a little smudgey. It's very smooth--no skipping or anything. It's also really pigmented, so you only need to draw the line once. It wears really well on the upper waterline, the upper lashline and the lower lashline, but when you put it on the lower waterline, it doesn't stay on. It fades from the lower waterline and also feels sticky--I've figured out that this is part of this particular liner's stay-put quality. The wear on the other parts of the eye are all-day. Lower waterline wear is just a little uncomfortable and lasts only about half an hour (which is good--the sticky feeling won't bother you the whole day, then). 17CAD, found at London Drugs, Shoppers Drug Mart and Sears Canada.


Super sotty black. Like, THE blackest black. Super easy to apply because of the high pigmentation. But aside from that, it's no fun to wear. In about half an hour, I no longer have a prettily lined waterline--instead it has migrated three times the thickness of the original line and it DOESN'T come off. Well, not unless I go at it with a q-tip soaked in makeup remover, but really, who carries makeup remover in their purse? 27CAD at The Bay, Sears Canada, Sephora, Shoppers Drug Mart and London Drugs.


For an eye kohl pencil, the staying power is really not that bad. It's about 2 hours of perfection. As the day goes on, it fades away. It does smudge, as well, but minimal. An "eh" pencil. One could do better. But if your eyes aren't very watery or anything, it'd probably be great for you. 17.50CAD at MAC at The Bay, MAC, MAC Pro.


Hard to put on the waterline. It's probably because it's a waterproof pencil trying to draw on a wet waterline. It's very smooth and very black, though. Staying power is NIL. Absolutely nil. It was so bad, I returned it in a flash. After about an hour, it fades away COMPLETELY from the waterline and migrates waaaaaaaaay down below the lower lashline. 25CAD at Holt Refrew.


After the makeup board was recommending me this liner, I decided to try it out. I'm disappointed. It literally is the same story as the Shu drawing pencil. Very black with panda eyes in an hour, flat. Sigh. 19CAD at The Bay, Sephora, Sears Canada and Shoppers Drug Mart.


Again, another liner that just pissed me off. Everyone I talked to promised that it'd be THE liner and I was particularly excited because when Sephora opened just last summer, I made it part of my first purchase there. And you know what? Exact same story as the Shu drawing pencil and the MUFE liner. Pooey. 21CAD at Sephora.


This liner has the same consistency as the Lise Watier liner, but this one actually stays much longer on the waterline, without that weird stickiness. Very smooth. You might need to run the liner over twice over the same place to make it darker, though. The fading is very gradual and very neat--it doesn't smudge and leave a mess below the lashline. I believe it only started to fade after 4 hours. So far, this liner wins the contest. 17.50CAD at MAC at The Bay, MAC, MAC Pro.

Phew. That was long. Hope this helps someone!

It's not as soft as you would expect an eye kohl to be. It even hurts when you apply it on your water line (even after I warm it up between my fingers), and it does not stay. Will not repurchase especially after I've found my HG kohl

I bought this on sale (like 7 Euro), and I fell in love with the color, ( I bought Teal) , I fell in love with how it gave me the look I wanted.. But the worst thing is it smudges sooo easliy, even with your finger you can remove it, or it crumbles accidentally.. Also the smudger isnt comfortable since it has a sharp cut edge. Dont regret though, still use it but I m more careful than before.. I wont buy it again even its on sale like before.
