I have sensitive eyes as well and this has never irritated them, just have some strong eye makeup remover on hand because it is waterproof! I wear it underneath my lash line and that may have something to do with it not irritating and since the colors are so bright they go perfectly there.

Are the color swatches accurate?
I've heard that the colors are more vibrant in reality. Is this true? Also, are these as ridiculously creamy as UD's 24/7 liners? Thanks!

Yes, the color swatches are pretty accurate, but it works best if you try the color on your skin to see what it looks like on you. Also, these aren't super creamy, but definitely more of a soft liner. Hope I helped!

Yes, the colors are indeed a lot more vibrant in color then the swatches you see on the site. When I first saw the Flashy Green I thought it was just a little bit shiny, but when I put it on, it was VERY vibrant! I love the black one though, it REALLY brings out the eyes.
I've used the UD eyeliners too, and thankfully these liners aren't AS creamy as the UD liners are.

Hi,

They're better in actuality. Some of the vibrancy is lost on the computers, and I'm looking at three different ones, just to confirm (HP HP and Gateway). It's creamy, too, so that it can glide on, but not creamy enough to break.

Hi,

Sephora sells a variety of sharpeners that work perfectly. Look for one that contains the shavings in an enclosed section, plus one that has a duo size. They're very inexpensive and last until they get lost. Sephora makes as nice duo sharpener as does NARS and UD (Grind House). DuWop had a great duo sharpener, too, that sanitizes tips as it sharpens. I've found a good sharpener with really sharp blades protects from product loss and drag caused by poor sharpeners or dull blades.

Put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes first, then sharpen as you would any other pencil liner. Just warm it up a bit prior to using it.

Even though it says waterproof, its really more to like get you through rainy days or intense crying sessions, and those days where you go for a workout at the gym, its still amazing though. but if you want to try its really the only way you'll find out for sure.

You can definitely sharpen these liners! I have most of the colors and I use my Black liner EVERYDAY, so I run out of the liner pretty quickly and I sharpen mine every time I use it. Just be careful when sharpening them though, because the liner is creamy and if you sharpen too much then it breaks. Hope this helps! Enjoy!

Sharpeners are available for all eye shadow pencils, including thick barreled colors. There are also sharpeners that double as caps, so they are always there when you need them (my favorite). They are commonly available.

I'm no expert but I have used this on my waterline. I got no irritation or any problems, however, it didn't stay on the actual waterline long but floated down into my lower lashes. It is actually a nice look I think. It doesn't get smudgie or create a raccoon look it just settles on the lashes for me. Hope this helps!

how do you get hte liner to come out?
I really like the eyeliner. but there doesn't seem to be a lot to it. is there a way to get it to twist out of the tube or something? or is it there is only a couple weeks worth of liner there? I tried twisting it out and shaking it. I'm at a loss. Can you help me?
