I passed on buying this pencil every time it was released- until a few days ago. Re-released with another, new, '09 MAC Collection (can't keep up with the names of all these collections anymore)... I finally caved. (Afterall, I had "birthday money," and none of the recent MAC Collections have appealed to me.) I love the dark, carbon black line that this pencil produces... but this is a pencil that should come with a warning!

WARNING: Do NOT use on the waterline, unless you are going for the raccoon look. WARNING: Do NOT use to line lower lashes, unless you want your eyeliner all smudgey and smeared under your eyes for the rest of the day. WARNING: Do NOT use on upper lids without using primer underneath and powder on top.

{Giggle} With all that, someone might wonder what is the use of this pencil? Well, it is *OK* to line the upper lid along the lashline with... just DON'T use it to tightline up there! I used it like this: Apply an eyelid primer, than powder eyeshadow, then Feline, then smudged into lashes with smudge brush, then topped with Revlon Colorstay liquid eyeliner in black. That was my only success with Feline where it didn't melt, migrate, smudge, smear, or give me boxer eyes. Beautiful rich black pencil, but too much trouble & not enough versatility to justify ever purchasing another. If you are looking for a soft-touch, deep-black pencil that smudges like a dream- but then also smears all over your eye area as the day goes on- then this pencil is definitely for YOU! But if you are a person who likes your eye makeup to be tidy, neat and clean... by all means... save your money and avoid this one like the plague!!!!

PS (For a better buy, try Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner pencil in Zero. Sure it costs more, but it is just as black, has an even softer pencil tip,
and it lasts all day on my waterline with NO smudging or raccoon eyes.) continued >>
