Beautiful Color Smoky Eyes Pencil
Can't do without this pencil!
I have been using the Expresso eye pencil for over 20 years too! I have tried other brands and there is no comparison. I tear a lot, so for me, this is the only pencil that is absolutely tear/smudge proof! Please don't change the formula. I had a problem a few years back with the tip always breaking EVERY TIME I sharpened it and it didn't happen to just one pencil... Yes, it was very frustrating and expensive. I bought a lot of different sharpeners and that still didn't work. I would put the pencil in the freezer before sharpening which helped. Finally, I started to go to the EA counter and have them sharpen my pencil for me until they gave me one of their extra sharpeners and I haven't had a problem since. I would have bought a pencil sharpener and still would like to purchase another sharpener but they don't sell it. I am so disappointed...I used to get my pencil from the NEX but for almost a year they have been out! I went to Macy's because that's where I first started buying my pencil and they no longer carry Elizabeth Arden....I am at the very and I mean very bottom of the pencil and will need to order it online. At least, I have that option...please don't discontinue making the Expresso Pencil.
I have been using this pencil for over twenty years and absolutely love it. Over the years I have tried other pencils, including those that automatically sharpen themselves and nothing beats this one. It lasts a long time and doesn't need sharpening every time you use it. I can make a line that looks natural and smudge for a smoky look in the evenings. I use espresso and pine. There used to be another green color that I loved but I can't find that anymore. Oh, and because it is an Elizabeth Arden product, I have bought it in Tokyo, Washington, DC and NC. Love, love, love it!
This one is a must-have. Has the smudger on one end and pencil on the other. Love it! Ordering a second to keep on hand!
Great Color, Great Product
I like this eyeliner and especially in this color. Has just a tiny hint of green. This is the third one I have used and will continue to order this color as long as they carry it. Quick shipment.
Finally My HG Eyeliner!
I wish I had thought to try this pencil years ago because it gives me the definition I want but at the same time, it provides a soft, smoky look if you use the smudger. It really is more of a powder in pencil form & I love it. I apply it over eye shadow with an eye primer underneath & it stays on all day. I haven't had any issues with the pencil breaking & it doesn't have to be sharpened every time like some other pencils I've used. I have fair skin with brown eyes & medium blonde hair & the Espresso is a perfect shade for me. I hope it never gets discontinued.
Good, not great
I bought this in pine and mulberry. The pine is a dark hunter green, but it doesn't smudge very well. The mulberry is very light purple -- pretty but very subtle. They are bit dry for my liking. Also, I wish these were a little bit thicker to create more of a smoky look. But it's nice to have the smudge sponge included.

I would not use any other pencil as this applies quite easily. Have tried many others and have used this for years.... The "wood" of the pencil is soft so it does not irritate the eye. Thank you Elizabeth Arden. And, you have many colors that I enjoy; pine, violet, smoky black, and especially expresso.
Goes on smoothly and provides great coverage.
