It works. Did me well for my halloween costume. The issue is that it doesn't extend. You're meant to use a sharpener like a makeup pencil. But you only get the tip. There is no turn dial to extend to get more. So you get very little.
Firstly I can see this product's use is for eye lining and shadow and I was planning to use the product for both - I would imagine this product is far too thick for lining (and I wear my eyeliner slightly thicker than usual!) so just used this as a shadow, however was a bit disappointed to find that it didn't seem to dry, and settled into the crease of my eyelid pretty sharpish. Otherwise, the colour is very bold and vibrant while it lasts, but I found when wearing this on my eyelids I had to re-smudge it back into place, and it's not that easy a product to get off your fingers! Perhaps a translucent powder would work best over this product so it sets properly. Unfortunately I bought this in black bean, so I'd imagine it would leave a powdery finish over the top, as the formula is very creamy and doesn't seem to set properly, staying shiny. Nevertheless I'm giving this product an extra star, you can tell this is a top quality product as it doesn't drag over the eye and is very well packaged.
I wish I could say anything good but found it difficult to apply to the inner eye. First time I put a thick line and mascara, it immediately rubbed on the top of my lid when I even when I specifically made the line not too thick for that very reason. I figured it was because I only used the pencil. Second time I do the same thing plus applied powdered black eyeshadow on top to seal it and pencil eyeliner for the hell of it. It again immediately rubbed off all over the place. Eventually it stopped rubbing off and I was left with a hot mess.
A defective item was sent to me. The cap was super tight and the whole thing was smeared inside the cap. Was unable to open the cap; after multiple attempts I had to forcefully separate the cap from the body ending up in breaking the eyeliner. All my money gone to the bin. So disappointed with such a product.
i heard some rave about these jumbo pencils but not sure i understand. they smudge very easily and are not waterproof so there isnt really a win there. this would be very hard to use for an eyeliner wing, but even under the eye it just smudges too much. Not the best/ not sure what to use it for
