The first couple of times I used this my skin had no problem with it. It has a nice scent and feels tingley on the skin. But now it just makes me break out. Especially around my chin, which is a weird area for me to break out. I did like that it shrank my pores, but it caused me to break out which I did not like.
Pros: Very black and pigmented Staying power is better than average Mechanical style pencil requires no sharpening Bonus Sharpener on the bottom, but I don't really use it Cons: It's hard to blend/smudge Doesn't go on smoothly Overall, I'd say this eyeliner is great for tightlining. I don't think I would use it on my upper/lower lashline though because I find it too stiff to smudge for that. I did a swatch comparing this to UD Zero and Revlon was far more pigmented and when I rubbed the swatches the Revlon stayed on longer. However I find the UD pencils creamier and easier to work with. I want Revlon Colorstay to have the creaminess of a UD 24/7 liner and then it'd be perfect!
If you have oily skin or an acne problem, this is definitely NOT for you. One of the main ingredients is cornstarch which can cause acne. Another thing, this powder is very pink-toned. Besides it causing acne, I do not like this for my face because if I want to cancel the red tones in my skin, this does nothing for that! However this works really well for setting powder under the eyes. I just swirl a 224 in the cap and tap it off and set my concealer with this. The pink tones help brighten the under eyes yet it's not a very cakey powder so it's perfect for that use. So overall, not good for face but I actually kind of like this for setting concealer under the eyes to prevent creasing/get rid of she shininess left by the concealer. My only complaint with the packaging is that it is really messy!

Total waste of my money! It's very creamy and black but it's like smudge-city with this stuff----don't get it.
Eyeliner -Urban Decay - 24-7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

Pros: Goes on very smoothly Nice packaging I got the doubled end one from the Naked palette, I love the color Whiskey! Cons: Zero is not very black, my Revlon Colorstay has more pigmentation than this Fades and smudges Not long lasting like it claims to be Overall, it is not worth buying on it's own. I would recommend Revlon Colorstay or Milani Liquif' eye.

This is extremely shiny and creamy. It's also moisturizing. Totally NOT sticky at all. Zero stickiness---no joke!
