Tarnish is a stunning blackened green shot through with subtle shimmery green overlay. When I line my eyes (upper lashline, lower lashline, and waterline), it creates this stunning and INTENSE cat eye look, and brings out the green in my eyes. The texture is smooth and creamy and it never tugs on my skin when I apply it. It makes a perfect base for a green smoky eye as well. Unfortunately, the lasting power just isn't there, and that's to be expected of this product. It's a kohl, so it's supposed to be smudgy and creamy. I guess I just like the look of intentionally smudging a product, not having it happen on accident. If you like the rocker look, this is a great product for you. It's priced at $14.5, and the pencil should last you at least a year, making this a good purchase for a high quality product.
