3.0 out of 5 starsDoes the job, but gives you only the nub.

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.
This product is great. It did exactly what I wanted. I have brown eyes and the iced mocha color goes great for everyday use or to dress up my makeup. It’s adds a “smokiness” look without being overwhelming. It’s stays all day for me and cleans off as easy as my other makeup. The reviews were complaining about how to sharpen it but it’s very easy with the big pencil sharpener. It seems weird to sharpen plastic at first, but it does work just fine. It’s a great, inexpensive addition to my makeup. I think I’ll get more colors!
I'm a little disappointment with this. When I ordered it i was under the impression it was a twist up. I received it and was unhappy to learn that it is not. I can't even put it on my waterline because the outside piece scraps my eye. I did get the bottom off and I see where there is product down in the end so I guess when the correct end gets used up I'll just stick a small long handled makeup brush down in the other end and use it from there. The color is nice. I'll be sure to pay better attention next time I order something like this.
This was cute and looked good on, but there is no way to sharpen it. The bottom doesn’t twist so once you use up the tip, you cannot access the rest of the crayon in the plastic casing. Very poor product design and waste of money.
There is no way to request a refund because I have nothing to send back. I opened an empty envelope. Hope one of you people can fix this. I am some kind of mad! I received several packages at about the same time and the others were fine. This is not cool!!!!! I had to select 1 star to let you know how I feel- and really its a O star. Its only 2.59, but its my 2.59.
I like the color and ease of application, BUT there seems to be no way to roll the rest of the eyeshadow up after you "wear down" the point. I have tried literally everything I can think of, but it doesn't click up, doesn't roll up, doesn't appear you can sharpen the point - so when the point is down below the tube, I guess I'll have to throw it away. Would NEVER buy this again because of the packaging.
Lasted about 3 weeks and I’m A light user. And then no more There’s a YouTube on how to sharpen with a big pencil sharpener but didn’t work for me So, now instea of being a repeat customer, lesson learned. Shame on deceptive manufacturer
First of all let me say you can sharpen these pencils. You do have to have a gigantic sharpener. The pencil glides on your eyes easily and blends very well. It last great for about 6 hours on me and then starts to fade. I do have a little bit of creasing but nothing too bad. It is has shimmer to it. So if you're older and you don't like shimmers don't buy it. It's not sparkly just shimmery. The only negative is the color does have a slight gold hue to it on my skin which I am not super fond of. Definitely not a deal breaker.
