I'll look into it, though, now I'm deeply invested in the Illamasqua pencils. Hahaha, turns out I'm also starting to love the blackest black MAC pencil. It makes the whites of my eyes super bright. Thanks!

Soooooo, they came today. They're nice, but not quite dark enough. They're not as smudgy as my Mac, which means they will last longer, but they're a little more difficult to smudge. Maybe I just have inferior tools for this. I have to pair it with my black pencil to get the look I was hoping for. But once I did, it looked great! So, I'd still recommend them. Not everyone needs super dark black brown like me, and if you do, then you'll probably be fine with black.

I'll probably use the two-pencil combo for daytime, and stick to the blackest black alone for nighttime. It just really makes my eyes pop.

They're not that smudgeable? How disappointing...

Yeah, and they really didn't last all that long for being harder and less smudgy than my MAC pencil. After just a few short hours, most of the brown had disappeared from around my eyes. Again, maybe it's my inferior smudging brushes and lack of skill that contributed to my disappointment.

Their variety of colors is amazing, and they might work well for a more artsy, dramatic application, with heavier, thicker lines, but for a more conservative daily look, I'm not impressed. But, just like with hair products, you have to experiment, so I still appreciate the suggestion. I knew I was taking a risk ordering two of them, but if I really did like them, I didn't want to have to pay double the shipping for another one. And, I still intend to use them. They're great mixed with black, but that's what I thought I was paying for in the first place!

So, as soon as I can afford it, I'm going to get another MAC Feline. Still searching for a good sharpening, though, especially with these expensive-ass pencils!

Default FOR SALE!!!

I'm selling my Illamasqua pencils. I'm hopelessly in love with MAC Power Kohl Feline.

See the "Other beauty products" swap board thread for details.

That blue is gorgeous! Back in high school, I used to use a cobalt blue eyeliner, smoked and smudged out, with a thinner line of black pencil over the top of it, right at the base of the lashes. I thought it was such a cool look. I used to get a lot of compliments on it. Your blue reminds me of it.

Thanks for the compliment!

Sorry about the pencils (I hoped I edited the post before you saw it). But I realized I get a 40% pro discount from the website.

40%? Nice!

I went to MAC today to buy more Kohl Power Feline liners before they run out, and stupidly bought a Coffee pencil because it "appeared" much darker than my Illamasqua pencils...then I compared the two on my hand, and they're exactly the same color. Now I'm stuck with 3 pencils I probably won't use.

Coffee has been my go-to color since HS. You can return to MAC, they'll give a full refund.

Well...I tried it on my hand...I wonder if they'd still take it.

Yes, they will. My friend works for a MAC counter and they take just about anything back. Just let them know you didn't like it or the color wasn't what you thought it would be.

I just saw a sharpener that creates rounded tips, and I thought of this thread. You can look it up at alconeco.com. Id post a link, but Im on my nook.

You really need to go and look at Mosha queen of kohl on Etsy, I love this stuff, it goes on beautifully, last really well and there are several colours.
Oh and the red bottle looks so cool!!!

Highly recomended

The best waterproof eyeliner pencil I've used is the aqualiner by Makeup Forever. The black is the one I use and I used to have a problem with the liner travelling underneath my eye a few hours later, but this really stays put and it's smudgeable for only a few secs after you put it on. It comes in like 10 colors!
