        I rarely wear eye makeup due to an eye problem. I used smokey olive for a special occasion. It stayed on all day but removed completely.

          I use this pretty much daily. I have this in brown and olive and love them both. I'm really fair so a true black looks really harsh on me. This is the perfect alternative.

            pencil does not sharpen well at all with its plastic and once it was sharpened the pencil is so soft it just smashes as soon as you try to line your eye with it

                  Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Faux Blacks:

                  I would apply it and the tip would break off. I sharpened it and the tip broke off. I've never had any problems with NYX. I was surprised that this product failed. I did return this.

                    I wanted something a little different from an everyday black. Not that I have anything against black liners, it's all of what I pretty much use but, I wanted to change it up. I got this and I'm impressed. It's pretty and looks like a black but, with a hint of color to it to really bring out your eyes. Great product!

                        I tried applying it to my waterline and it would not show up. The pencil tip kept crumbling and I would get pieces of liner on my waterline and in my eyelashes but still no color. When I went to remove it I had such a hard time removing the little balls of liner stuck in my lashes. Not sure if I got a bad pencil but it is the worst liner I've ever tried.
