I pretty much have the same problem with all eyeliners. They all end up smudging on my waterline and making me look like a crazy raccoon. This product is no exception to that. I wish I could say that it works great for me but I'm still on the hunt for my Holy Grail.

I used Nars liner for a few years til i found something else i got hooked on. I liked it. The pencil was smooth and easy to use. Though when i sharpened it i feel like i wore the pencil down pretty quickly.

Nars has wonderful eyeliners along with other products. Although pricey, it’s a very beautiful liner. I bought it from the nars boutique and I really enjoy it! I would buy t again if needed. I recommend it!

A overall great pencil liner, works well on both the waterline and on lids. Very comparable to others out there in the market. Consistency is creamy as the name states "velvet" so I'm definitely happy with this as a staple in my beauty routine. Worth checking out!

This eyeliner is pretty easy going on and I can even smudge it while applied to my upper or lower lash line to create a smokey look. Its hard to wash off though, so I recommend using eye makeup remover or a towelett with coconut oil melted onto it to wipe it away.

This eyeliner is by far the easiest to use in the line. The application is smooth and effortless. It's easy to smudge which is awesome until you have an itch near your eye.

I personally prefer the urban decay 24 hr to this for lasting wear.

Would recommend for a Night out.

This is one of my go-to pencils for a soft look that doesn't smear. It applies smoothly, not like a gel but
Not like a traditionally stiff pencil either. The dark brown color really helps my green eyes pop and isn't harsh against my skin either. You do need a sharpener with this liner, and I freeze my pencil before I sharpen it so I loose less product.

I was hoping this pencil would combine the softness of a kohl with the lasting power of the newer generation of eyeliners (think UD 27/7 pencils) but sadly it transfers onto my hooded lids and migrates under my eyes, even using the Nars eye primer

Review for: Las Pozas more...
I got the nars eyeliner in nude because I wanted to open up my small eyes (or give that effect I should say). It ended up being too extreme looking and would form into these little balls after wearing it for not to long. I think using it on my waterline may have been where I went wrong though so I can’t diss the liner overall.

I love how creamy and soft these pencils are! They are perfect for a quick smudgy smokey eye effect. The colors are great and the wearability is just as awesome! They look great on the water/lash line too. They are non-irritating and wear for a long time. My current favorite is the dark navy dark light!
