Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye Pencil (Onyx and Bronze)

Hi all ^__^

Apparently this week going to be Estee Lauder week at my blog since I'll be reviewing a lot of their items, some works really really well and becoming my favorite cosmetic while some did not. This particular product is one of the 'didn't'.

The pencil felt like crayon on the skin, on the hand it glide effortlessly but on the lid I find it a bit tight. The color is vivid, it's shows quality however it doesn't dries instantly and give room for some blending action. I am unable to create a fine line using this pencil, it always come thick and after sharpening since fine lines means sharp point, it's a bit painful. I have difficulties creating precision lines as well.

And then the lines will set? Unfortunately, on my lid, it doesn't. All day I have to struggle with smudges and looking like Panda, it's dark circles due to the bleed. And cleaning them also not that easy, as eye liner are put on the eye area, the crayon-like texture need a very good eye makeup remover (oil based) to be completely clean as it was a tad sticky and due to the contour of the area.
