So I started using this sometime back in the 1990s, when my eyes didn't have lines and my wallet was a little lighter. It was fine then, and it's still fine. Sure, there are better, more expensive products, but I have not yet found a better, cheaper product, which has made this a consistent tool in my arsenal of eye stuff--and I have a lot of stuff from which to choose these days. It's generally one of three I carry around with me, mostly because if I lose it I can replace it by dropping into any drugstore. Can't do that with my Trish McEvoy Midnight gel eyeliner or the Laura Mercier Aubergine Caviar Eyestick, both of which I use with some regularity. The Revlon isn't as smooth, but controlling the line is easy--and I don't have to sharpen it, which is great. I hate those little wavy bits of shavings that invariably slice off and waste way too much of the soft gel tip. I paid for that stuff I'm throwing away! If you live in a colder climate, this may not be a great product for you--when it gets cold it gets more brittle and doesn't go on as smoothly. (Here in Los Angeles, we think you people are crazy for living in a place where your eye makeup seizes up.) Since I'm bad about removing my makeup at night, I frequently wake up with raccoon eyes from this, but that means that it's lasting longer than either of the pencils mentioned above or the Tarte Amazonian Clay Skinny or Urban Decay pencils that I also use (and those both have to be sharpened. Boo!) So I like it. I use it. And in a pencil-less pinch, I've scrawled down phone numbers on receipts with it. I wouldn't do that with a more expensive, softer gel!
