The verdict: I love how easy it is to apply and how well it stands out. I wasn't expecting a jumbo eye pencil to be this good! Although it doesn't last a long time and it smudges a little... I would and WILL buy it again...

I bought this on accident when I went to the store looking for this brand's lipgloss. I had bought the lipgloss on a whim because it was so cheap -$2.99- and loved it. I NEVER repeat buy. So I went back to try and find another one and much to my dismay, that color was gone. I needed a new black eyeliner and decided to try this one.
I wasn't expecting much because i buy alot of eyeliners and I love or even like very few. I usually buy small eyeliner pens that roll up to avoid the whole sharpening thing.
Here is what I love: This eyeliner glides on. It doesn't take more than one swipe to get a line dark enough to show up, and it doesn't take multiple swipes to get the color on. I don't know if you have ever bought a crayon that requires you to apply a few times to get a complete line, and is so hard that your eye ends up being sore...

I do wish that it wouldn't smudge because it is a little oily and if you rub your eye...and it isn't long lasting by any stretch...
