That first sweep, I pressed too hard and there was an ENORMOUS black line all around my eye. I tried to blend it out--didn't work--I tried to wash it off--didn't work--I used a makeup remover--barely dented it--IT JUST WOULDN'T COME OFF! Be aware, beauty lovers, to use a light hand with these and really build the line you want to have on your face for 10+ hours because it ain't gonna budge.

In addition to being very long lasting and generally smudge-proof, these go on well with practice and are bold in pigmentation. As a personal yeh! note, the pencil has a satin finish, which just feels so nice and luxurious beneath my fingers. And über cute packaging design to boot!
I have two colors: No.1 Black Noir and No.5 Deep Plum. Each full size liner is 0.04oz for $14.00 but these super-smooth pix are gonna last you a while, even with everyday wear. I'm thinking of investing in Black Cocoa for a brown everyday look.
