I got mine in Teal, which is exactly that- a darkened blue-green with just a small amount of sheen. No shimmer.
See how smooth they look? They perform just as smoothly, too. The packaging looks cheaper than Urban Decay's 24/7 pencils, but that's to be expected at $3.99. I'm not one to get hung up on that though.
I was really impressed by the staying power these had on my hand. The left swatch is normal; the right is after letting it sit for 10 seconds and lightly rubbing my finger back and forth against it. How did it last on my lids?
Without a base, I noticed some teal in my crease after about 1 1/2- 2 hours (Keep in mind I have pretty deep-set eyes and not particularly oily lids). However, with a base- I tested this all day today- I found no creasing whatsoever. The eyeliner stayed put on my upper lash line and looked just as vibrant this evening as it did this morning. Nice! I did only test it on my upper lash line, though- I rarely wear much eyeliner on my lower, so I'm not sure how well these would work in the waterline, either.
I did just do some reading up on MUA's reviews of this, which you can find here:
Most of the comments were good, and a lot of people thought it really worked well on their waterlines.
For $3.99, I think these are a really affordable, good quality eyeliner for anyone who likes Urban Decay's 24/7, L'Oreal HiP, or Milani Liquif'eye. They are super-smooth to apply, and they hold up to 8+ hours of wear- as long as you use a base.
Another plus: If you can find them, they also come in a decent variety of colors for a drugstore eyeliner: Black, Dark Brown, Mink, Smoky Plum, Moody Blue, Sky High, and Teal.
Oh and one more thing- you can do like I did, and use the $1.00 off any NYC product from Allyou.com (That I posted about here). That brings the price down to only $2.99! You can't use more than one of these at once, but I'm sure you can print out multiple and use them at different times.
