I had won 2 of these pencils from Beauty South Africa (THANK YOU), one brown and one purple. Since I am dark the purple hue didn’t match my skin tone. The brown on the other hand I loved. It glides on smoothly as a liner or a lipstick. It lasts quite long and comes with its own sharpener which is great because of its jumbo size. My mum had hijacked the pencil from my cosmetic case on several occasions because she loved it as well. Slowly and sneakily it moved from my cosmetic case to hers and now that the pencil is on its very last legs (it cannot be sharpened anymore) she has been hinting to me that she wants another !
