I really like (most of) these Catrice eye pencils. I have a bunch of different colors and even though not all of them are great, i definitely recommend most of them. e.g. The brown one is my go to eye pencil. Doesn't smudge on me, the shade is beautiful and is great with a dark, sultry smokey eye. The black one however, is very creamy, but does smudge on me. If pencils already tend to crease on you , i don't think this one is for you. I never set these with eyeshadow, but that might definitely be an option to make it work.
