Don't buy this!
from Regina, SK
I would give this product a ZERO if I could, but the rating scale will not let me. I bought this to wear to a wedding and received the product 2 weeks before the wedding. I tested it out beforehand and it worked fine. When it came time to use it on the wedding day, the pencil had completely dried out and would not write at all! I am so not impressed with this product and I am very disappointed in IT Cosmetics.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Real Disappointment :(
from Mississauga, ON
I was super excited to get these pencils, even after reading the bad reviews. These pencils didn't even last a month for me, dried out in 2 weeks, now they are just collecting dust. I have tried to wet them and revive them with no luck. Worst product of IT Cosmetics.
Not worth buying
Like other reviews, I thought these were great to start, but found they dried out quickly. It was mention quite a few times in the program that you need to close the cap tightly in order to keep them fresh, which I did and ended up with all three caps cracking. Once dried out, you cannot sharpen them or the ends break off and they pull much worse than generic eye pencils. Save your money and buy 10 cheap ones!
How to fix when it dries out
Mine dried out quickly also however I did find a fix. I always keep a small dish of coconut oil in my bathroom. When the pencil dried out I put it in the oil for a while and it penetrated the eyeliner. Goes on like butter after that. I shouldn't have to do that but at least I can still use the product. I suppose any oil would work.
Love the way it goes on. Will buy again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I have the same experience as others have had with this eyeliner. It was great at first, but dried out quickly,even though the cap is on tightly. I tried sharpening it but it broke and it's now very hard to get on without tugging. A real disappointment.

Excellent product, lousy cap
from Northern BC
The eyeliner itself is wonderful, goes on the way it's described and stays well. The cap however, if you push it hard enough to make sure it's sealed, it gets hairline cracks in it which lets air in and dries the eyeliner out. I wrapped the cap with tape and my eyeliner has stayed good ever since. Like it enough I'm buying more in a different colour.
Not quite as promised
Although it did glide on nicely it did not last all day which was the primary reason I bought it. I would not buy it again.
from Lloydminster, Alberta
Initially, they worked well.Unfortunately, all three of my gels dried out within a month and I barely had an opportunity to use them! I don't know if it is our dry winter climate, or what, but they are basically useless to me now. (And by the way, I DO still hear a POP when I take off the caps!)
from Winnipeg, MB
At first I loved this eyeliner. It did exactly what it was supposed to do. Went on beautifully and stayed put even with my deep set, oily eyelids but within a month or so, it dried out. I keep trying different things to get it to work again like sharpening it and wiping it but nothing works. I wish it worked like it did in the beginning because it really was excellent however I'm back to the drawing board trying to find that perfect liner.
