Love these pencils! They stay in so much better than most eyeliners. The colors are really rich and come in a gorgeous array of shades, including color with sparkle. I recommend these pencils to all my friends, who end up loving them too.
This is seriously the best eyeliner I have ever used. It doesn't smudge, it's completely waterproof, and underground is literally the perfect color. It is a medium slightly shimmery brown that really complements blue-gray eyes. I highly reccoment it to everyone
I got this product with high expectations since it's been a product that has really been well recieved and raved about in the makeup community. Sadly, this product did nothing that it claims to. First off I do have fairly oily lids but everytime I use any kind of eye makeup I will always use an eye primer (Urban Decay's Eden) which usually gives me no problem with any shadow or liner that I use. I bought this product because its colour pay off is really dark and the pencil glides on really smoothly. I tried this eyeliner in 2 places, on my top lid as an eyeliner and also in my upper water line. I don't really like pencil liners because you need to constantly sharpen them to get a nice point for more precise lines, that could be a waste of product and also you need to get an sharpener for it. On my eyelid this product was hard to control since the tip was too big and not sharp enough, I like slightly winged liner and with this liner it was almost impossible to wing without having to wipe my eye with a Q-tip or using an eyeliner brush to smugde it out to a wing. The colour goes on the lid dark, but within hours it fades to a grey, which is something I hate for an eyeliner to do. It smudges and in the waterline, it does not stay at all! In a couple of minutes the product in the upper waterline smudges to the bottom of the eye and the rest of it just disappears. For the price that I paid for this liner, it does not deliver at all on its promise. Even some drug store liners perform better than this. When I swatched this on my hand the results were completely different, no smudging after it set, it was an intense dark colour and no fading. I will have to return this product to Sephora. This is a product I highly do not recommend, unless you are going for a smoky smudged out liner look.
I love these eyeliners! I have them in so many different colors and use them constantly. They go on very smoothly and are creamy and very highly pigmented. I usually apply my regular eyeshadow on the lid and crease, then apply this liner and "set it" with a smoky layer of a similarly colored shadow. When I do this, it stays on for hours and I've never had trouble with it smudging. They only reason I gave this a 4.5 instead of a 5 is that I have to sharpen my pencils pretty often to get a fine point. I love all the shades but the ones I use most often are Electric, Zero, Covet and Ransom.
I have both Ransom and Zero, although Zero is my favourite of the two, it's a really nice shade of black, but I also love ransom as its a really beautiful unique colour that looks awesome! :) The pencils are so easy to apply because they feel so smooth, like butter! :)
Everyone thinks these are the best pencils ever, but I really don't get it! I got the black one for use on my waterline and it was a total disaster! It leaked out of the corner of my eye all day long! Ugh, what a mess! I also got the purple one (Crash) and the color was so so. It lasted on my top lash line, but like I said the color wasn't amazing or anything. I am a die hard UD fan and was disappointed that I didn't love these :(
I mostly use pencil liners for my waterline and I really dislike these for that, when comparing it to others that I've tried. 'Zero', which is raved about for being a perfect black, is not very dark or long lasting. There are cheaper, better liners out there.
