I recently picked up some of these liners at Sally Beauty Supply. They were inexpensive and I was drawn to the cute, playful colors, but I wasn't expecting much from them. I was so surprised that these pencils were super creamy! They're so easy to sharpen, I use them to do winged liner (which usually is not easy with a pencil) in fun colors. There's a little skipping, but iverall, for the price, I'm going back to stock up on all the colors I wanted!
