I love this eyeliner. There will be no way I will go back to pencil. It goes on very smooth, accurate, and easy on the eyes. The problem I had with the pencils is that I always had a hard time getting the black on my eyes. I had to push down really hard and constantly go over the same spot over and over. This gel had no problem. With just a small amount of gel, it goes on dark and smooth across my eyes. I always put this eyeliner on and I have had this small bottle for probably about 7-8 months now and still have half of the bottle left. The only con that I can think of for this product is that they need to provide a small cover for the tip of the brush when it's not in use. There is nothing there and the gel that is left on the brush gets on the sides of my bag or cupboard that it's in. This is an amazing product and there will be no way that I'll go back to pencil. If you want an easy and smooth eyeliner, this is the product for you!
