    Eh

    I didn't love this pencil. I was hoping to... and it was kinda neat since it goes on cool, but it's not the best pencil. It smudges, runs, and doesn't last at all. I bought a black one and it did more than crease. It rubbed itself into cruddy little chunks that fell into the rest of my face. yuck. — 3 years, 3 months ago

    Sort of mooth application--not so smooth smudging.

    Although its product name is rather long, the liner has a pretty smooth application, but it pretty much depends. I have a damask-ish colored one which applies easily and Snow Bunny which pulls on my eyelid. Not so nice. I happen to have three of these liners that tug--the damask-colored one doesn't. When you sharpen these pencils (mind you, they're JUMBO sized) you can see that the core (product)...read more doesn't exactly fit into the crevice of the wood, so it may fall out one day.... It actually does feel cooling--like...a cool breeze just hit your (place of application), or the taste of mint ice cream. However it's just on application--it's not going to give you a cool effect when you wipe it off, or smudge it. Speaking of smudging, it only works with the ones that come on smoothly. The ones that come on like a oily sort of look like ... basically, you drew on yourself with oil pastel. It's not pleasant. — 4 years, 11 months ago

    Decent enough.

    The shades are shimmery, just the way I like them, with a generous ammount of pigment. Although I do find the product itself rather dry, so the application can be rather uneven and a bit of a challenge. But once you perfect it the look is great. But the part that is most unfortunate is that this product makes my eyes sting. If even a small ammount touches my eyeball, my eye starts to burn and bec...read moreome watery. I have two shades and this happens with both of them, and it's really weird because my eyes are not the least bit sensitive to products. Needless to say, I always have to be careful how I apply this product. — 5 years, 2 months ago

    great colors, but not long lasting

    i love these pencils! they wear as liner, or eyeshadow and are pretty idiot proof! the colors are nice and not garish, but you do have to reapply throughout the day. i have a question though: how do you sharpen them? i can't seem to find a sharpener that fits them. bummer. — 5 years, 5 months ago

    Simple & Sparkling

    I've been using these shadow/liner pencils for a few years now & they're great. I love that fact that the product is smudge & crease resistant - it really lasts through my monster days! I use them as liners for my upper lids, so it looks more casual than traditional liner, but they've done well when used to add color/definition to the lower lids too. My favorite color is On The Rocks becau...read morese it matches my eye color, but I've yet to find a shade I dislike & many colors have just the right amount of shimmer in them to make eyes sparkle. — 5 years, 6 months ago
