Beautiful Color Smoky Eyes Pencil
Pro MUA Approved
As a pro makeup artist I scoffed at a fellow MUA who swore by this pencil up and down. I mean Elizabeth Arden? It isn't a brand that I see many other pros pulling out of their kits, except for the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream....which by the way is amazing. So given her amazing talent, experience, reputation, and recommendation I decided to give it a go. I'm so glade that I did! Let me say that this isn't a typical pencil by any means. Yes it is dry as others have mentioned but the texture and way it distributes color is similar to artist charcoal, if you have ever used it. I think that this is best for quick smokey eyes as the name suggests, mapping out different liner ideas(it cleans up VERY easily with a bit of moisturizer and a q-tip), and lining the water line. It holds it's shape pretty well too which is great so that I don't have to sharpen the pencil more than once per talent/client. Two thumbs WAY up.
very long lasting for oily lids
This eyeliner glides smoothly and doesn't tug. Will last from morning till night. Its important for me because I have an extremely oily face and oily lids. I like the smudger tip. really help with applying. if I use it on my upper lids, the color will transfer just a little bit on the outer corner of my eyes but doesn't create raccoon eyes. very satisfied and will buy again.
The pencil is really very nice but when you have to sharpen the point you lose most of the pencil. It falls apart, very disappointed.I bought two of them but can't use them. So it's costly for a pencil that I got very little use of.
Color really enhances my blue eyes! Love this!
I am so sorry that I bought this item! The pencil is so hard that I cannot use it. It does deserve one star for the beautiful color when smudged with nice rubber tip. I was able to find this out by trying it on the back of my hand. With tax and shipping, the price was more than double the price of the pencil. Unfortunately, I probably cannot return it.
I don't have any thing to put here.
I was excited to get my eye liner pencils, but they were so dry. I was pulling my skin trying to get it to work. It was like trying to use a crayon on my eye lids. I give this product a thumbs down!!!!!!
Perfect All Around
I tried this for the first time about six years ago as part of a gift set I received for Christmas. I instantly loved it so much so that I haven't switched eyeliners once since then. I adore the sponge end which works great for blending but the real selling point is the amazing eyeliner formula itself. It blends wonderfully and doesn't smudge at all once it's on also it stays put when I'm at gym without fading or running and it also holds up very well when I'm at the lake swimming. I use the espresso color which accents my blue eyes perfectly and isn't too dark for my ivory colored skin but I've tried the black and it works just as well and I'm sure all the other color options are just as good.
Great Smoky Liner
I love the pine shade and have used it for over 12 years. It is a subtle deep green, not at all "flashy" for a green liner and blends well, plus easy to control line. After sharpening, I have no problem with the tip breaking, as I have with other brands due to its creamy texture.
