I think these are the best eye shadow crayons out of all the ones I've tried. I like that they're wind-up, but you can still sharpen to a finer point if you want to use it as liner. They go on creamy but set quickly and last (almost) all day, with a little fading but no creasing or smudging (despite the name!). I have Umber, a dark burgundy which is beautiful as liner, and Smoke, a shimmery taupe. I wish they had some colors that were more matte/satin-finish, and that they were a little cheaper, but overall, I really like them.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Perversion

I got this for free in the Smoked palette, but it was even worse than the double-ended one from my Naked palette-I honestly don't get how anyone can rave about these pencils. Not only are they overpriced and need sharpening, I've never used anything so smeary and greasy. Yes, it's very black and creamy, but I can't even control the smudging and it leaves my eyes a mess within 10 minutes. There are so many good options (whether high end or drugstore) for creamy, but longwearing eye pencils that I can't imagine buying another one from Urban Decay. I do, however, love the Smoked palette as a whole and I think it's still worth getting even though I'll probably throw away the liner.
I've been using this since junior high school so I can't even tell you how many I've been through-luckily B2M does make me feel a little better about the price. This is one of the best products I've used on my sensitive, combination skin-matte, with buildable coverage although it will look cakey if you overdo it, especially if you have any dry areas. I use a large powder brush in the mornings to dust over concealer (layered if I have any blemishes to cover) and then carry in my bag for touchups during the day. My only problem is that I have to use a separate SPF underneath. Be very careful to find an exact match for color-having once bought nc25 instead of nw20 I found my skin looked orange and horribly powdery. Overall a great choice if you need medium coverage and want a matte finish
