I have tried so many eyeliners, both pencil and liquid. This one is my favorite! Soft and easy to apply accurately, this pencil did not bleed, fade, or scrape my eyelid with wood particles after sharpening. The one downside is that after sharpening, the tip was not as pointy. This one con is not enough to outweigh all these pros, especially since the eyeliner still works amazingly even with a bluntish tip. Eyeliner application is an acquired skill, not a right. Practice!
