I love MAC and have Eye Kohls in other colours that work great, but this smudges so much, and the colour is so intense, that it takes 1/2 hour and 10 Q-tips to do my eyeliner. Not good. I am always so stressed out if I am in a hurry! I even tried putting it in the fridge but it didn't work. Sick of all my MAC pencil lids splitting/breaking! Would not buy again.
