I love this product! Have used it for years. What I don't like is I am forced to buy the entire applicator each time as the refills are more expensive. Why? The refills should be much cheaper than buying this pencil each time.
I have been using this eyeliner for the past 3 years and it has done justice . This liner does not smudge on my water line, it stays put. The only draw back is that within like 6 hours it does start to fade a tad bit, but thats very little. Overall it's a great product
Pros are no sharpening, no waste, no splinters, glides on beautifully and looks great. Cons are does not last all day, but lasts as long as many other more costly brands. I wish the refills were less expensive. Cheaper to buy a new pencil then two refills. Not good for environment.
I've been using the Doublewear pencil which you have to sharpen which sometimes eats up a lot of pencil in a very short period of time. Thought I'd give the automatic pencil a try. I'd used one in another brand quite some time ago but figured EL would be a superior product. WRONG. This one does not last well at all. The ease of use great but that doesn't matter with no staying power. Can't EL make the Doublewear in automatic pencil form.
I ordered this pencil in Plum Grey. I loved the color. It stayed really well on the lid and went great with my shadow. However, it did not last at all well on the beneath lower eye--it just disappeared.
I was hoping for more of a purple color - the plum gray seems just gray - no "plum" at all. I find myself pressing as hard as I can to try to get some color out of it, but the color just seems really weak.
I have used this eyeliner in the Plumwood shade for many years and it has never disappointed. I have tried other shades, but always came back to this one. Similar products from other manufacturers did not compare with Estee Lauder's. In addition to this item, I use many other products by Estee Lauder which are equally as good.
I love this pencil. It's adjustable so there is no sharpening, no mess, no breaking. I've used it for years. The Walnut Brown is a lovely shade, nice with my skin tones, which are lighter, but the rich color would be good for most skin tones. I have noticed that this product seems slightly different than in prior years, but that might be me. It seems a bit oiler, so it does tend to "wear away" as the day goes on. I just carry an extra pencil with me and do touchups whenever I want a fresh look.
The color is rich, the texture is soft and creamy.I love that it stays put. It blends easily and stays where you want it to. Sharp line - got it. Smoky blend - got it. Use it with concealer as an eye shadow base - got it. It won't crease and won't dry out your eyelid's skin.
This is unquestionably a great product. The mascara goes on easily and stays in place well. I'd never want to go back to a mascara pencil that requires sharpening. The smudge tip is wasted on me but may be useful for others. My only real complaint is that it's cheaper to buy a new Eye Pencil which comes with one refill than it is to buy two refills. Consequently, I'm always throwing away a perfectly good empty pencil which seems wasteful.
This is by far the best eye pencil I have ever used. No kidding ten years ago ladies I bought this Estee lauder pencil, a tragedy happened in my life & I didn't wear make up for about 8 years, I found this pencil in my old make up bag & started to use it. It is just like it was ten years ago. This is the truth. It goes on smooth all you need is one stroke. It is smooth & rich. I LOVE this product. Ladies if you ever use this pencil you will never want to use another one
I love the Hyacinth Sky Automatic Eye Pencil Duo, although the "Duo" part of the name is a bit misleading. One end of the product contains the actual eyeliner, and the other end is just a sort of rubbery tip you're supposed to use to smudge the liner.
The eyeliner goes on easily, doesn't pull, and smudges quite well. Nice color intensity, and you NEVER have to worry about sharpening it. The refill cartridge included in the packaging is a great benefit.
