I think this product is fantastic for the price! I love the range of colours it comes in but when applying it, i felt that it was too creamy and soft for my liking.

Great for little highlights
I have this in the nude shade, and I predominantly use it just to highlight my inner corners, and it works perfect!
The pencil is soft yet not too creamy to the point where it just smudges- having said that, I like to warm it up on the back of my hand. It lasts quite a decent amount of time on my inner half of lower lash line, although I can see how this might smudge on some people.
There is a pretty wide range of colours to choose from, so there's something for everyone! Highly recommended for an eyeliner for touchups or beginners who just want to try some colours out as the prices are great :)

Not great, not bad
I got the white and the black kajal pencils and I am not highly impressed with them but for $2 I'm not that disappointed. I bought these intending to use them on the waterline and tight line (my mistake) they are not waterproof and did not last long at all (barely an hour). The white is not highly pigmented and you have to go over the line a few times for it to show up, the black isn't too bad. The problem I find with these is they are not very smooth and kind of harsh on the eyes.

Hurts when applying to my waterline
I have this eyeliner in white, and I like to apply it to my waterline for a wide awake look. I find that it actually hurts when applying it to my eyes as it is not very soft but it does glide on nicely. I find that warming it up between my fingers makes it easier and less painful. The colour payoff is good but not an opaque white. When applying it to the lid I find that it tugs unless I warm it up, but oh well, it was so cheap!

For the price the pencil is good. It doesn't last as long as I would like it to. It goes on nice and smoothly, they have a wide range of colours available .
It's a great product for everyday use.
Will be keeping this one in my makeup bag

I have this pencil in white and find it overly creamy that the tip seems to break off ever so often. And because of this I have ran to almost halfway of it in only 2 uses. However in saying so, the creaminess of the product means it glides on effortlessly onto the eye. With regards to the staying powder, I'm afraid it is prone to fading. The affordability of the product however makes up for this.

Does the job
This is a very inexpensive pencil liner that does what it's supposed to do and has a decent lasting time. The colour selection has a nice variety, and it really is not bad at all for the price.
The thing that I would have a problem with is its formula makes the pencil hard. Sure, that's nothing a hair dryer or any applied warmth to the product that won't fix, but as it is normally, it is too hard for me.
However, with that said, it's good value!

Soo many better liners out there..
Even if this liner was only a couple of dollars, I don't plan on every buying it again and wouldn't recommend anyone to do so either.
When I try to tightline or use it on my lower lashline, it smudges within minutes and end up making me look like a panda.
When I try to line the top of my eye it also fades away very quickly and makes it look like I have no eyeliner at all.
I can't seem to achieve anything I want with this pencil. It's quiet a disappointing product from what is usually a top quality brand.
