Even though, I am a fan of gel liners and I can better apply using a brush, I don't mind having a pencil eye liner around, for my waterline, or smudging on the lower lash line etc. I was totally head over heels, for how smudge proof this was and it lasts the whole day and may be a night too, without smudging. Love the formula - its very creamy and goes on smoothly and the shade is really very black. Its a great eye liner, undoubtedly.

BUT, the tip of the eyeliner, flattens after every use and then its hard to use the pencil to directly apply, unless, I am going for a thick eye liner look (which is too rare for me). Otherwise, I have to use a brush to apply it. That's true for most eyeliners in this, twist-up pencil, packaging and that is also the reason, why I go for pot eye liners.

Make Up For Ever Artist Liners are available at Sephora and Make Up For Ever Boutiques across Canada, for $23  and are available in 15 shades to choose from.
