To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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.
Wanted a eye colour pencil for a dash of colour in the summer when I do not want to use powder eye shadow, because I do not want to wear foundation. Those are just the job, give your eye a lovely glow, very easy to use. Very happy.
I rarely write negative reviews, but this product does not meet basic quality requirements. While the color is nice, the tip of the pencil is all that is usable. the twisting action, usually in these types of pencils, does not work and no more liner comes out of the dispenser. I reluctantly returned it because I don't think this is acceptable. Please fix this product so other customers will not be disappointed. Since the product received 4.5 stars, I did not read all reviews. I have now read the reviews and other customers have experinced the same issue.
The main problem with this product is that it does not have a twist top, so you apparently need to sharpen the whole pencil (including the plastic outside). This seems so dumb to me. I like this product because it's easy and I do not have a steady enough hand for eyeliner or enough time to create a nice everyday eyeshadow look before work. This product went very nicely onto my eyelids, but the Iced Mocha color definitely needs some sort of eyelid primer to work with my skin tone (very pale with some redness). The brown shimmer made my skin look a bit too pink-ish.
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!
