Before starting Skinn Cosmetics, I worked for twenty years with the largest cosmetic houses in the world. I found myself constantly frustrated with the way they did business. Unfortunately, the big cosmetic companies never seem to care about making quality products that actually help the consumer. Their "formula" was always the same: make a cheap product, put it in a fancy jar with a nice box and charge as much as possible. After learning that I was never going to change how those big companies do business from within, I realized I needed to change the nature of the very industry in which they operate.
When I launched Skinn in 2002 the question most asked was "How are you going to do it Dimitri? How are you going to give us more products, better products, and keep them at a comparable price?" The answer was really quite simple. After working at the highest levels of the big cosmetics houses, I learned that the money they spend does not go into the product. In fact, it seems to go everywhere but the product: ad campaigns, department store counter space, Park Avenue offices, and, most of all, packaging. Believe it or not, most companies spend more money on the container and fancy boxes than on the product that's inside. I used to sit in meetings in those Park Avenue offices to talk about how to improve the company's products. Those meetings always seem to end the same: "Let's change the packaging." Upgrading the product was always deemed too costly as it would require re-educating the consumer about what constitutes a quality product. In essence the secret would be out that water does not have to be the first ingredient in every product.
Skinn offers its products only through televised home shopping, the internet and exclusive, privately owned spas throughout North America. This has allowed us to reach the maximum amount of people, while keeping overhead very low. We don't have expensive retail shops or New York office suites; you won't see costly magazine or prime time TV ads. What we do have are some of the finest cosmetics ever made. You'll see the difference!

Great eye liner pencil but......
Dimitri, please bring this pencil back in betterworking order! This is a very good eye pencil liner but as we said in the reviews, the retractor mechanism does not work, it slides back in, won't hold while applying. I am very sensitive to everything and do likethis pencil, does not cause any irritation.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice liner !
I have an issue - oily lash lines! Liners etc. often seem to disappear at some point during the day, even the waterproof ones. So, before using any of Dimitri's liners, smudge sticks or shadows along the lash line, I gently swipe a Q-tip along that area to remove any excess natural oil, and migrant serums etc. It definitely improves ease of application plus the staying power, and dabbing a little shadow on top helps too. Wonder if his "oil control" powder would work? Hope this helps. The thicker, heavily pigmented smudge sticks give a more dramatic, bold line with opaque coverage, while these thinner liners are less opaque, and much easier to really get into the lash line for a defined or smudged look. Wish Dimitri would include a "smudge" tip brush.

Better & cheaper at drug store
This liner is going back. It's doesn't go on easily, the tip keeps retracting as you're trying to tug it over your skin, and it doesn't have staying power..a real disappointment and I cant believe anyone would give it a good review?..so disappointing from SKINN..

Definitley not a defining eyeliner!!
This product was soooo disappointing...it is not waterproof....it goes on smoothly but does not last...I tried applying it first and then applied my shadow over top...it rubbed off...Then i tried applying it on top of my shadow along the lash line and it again rubbed off. I love Skinn cosmetics but this eyeliner just doesn't cut it! I would not recommend to anyone.....
I love this liner. Find it stays on much of the day - even during the winter. Very easy to apply.
Skinn's Luxe Eye Pencil
This is the best eye pencil I have ever used! Colour does not fade goes on sooo easily and stays on does not fade as day goes on. I don't think this pencil is for smudging it is more like an eyeliner. I love the indigo colour not as harsh as black. love it! love it!
