Price you paid?: $4.00
Good green eyepencil, good price
I forget what I paid for it...more than $3, less than $5, somewhere in there.
It's a nice eyepencil. It goes on smoothly, wears decently well (not as well as the Prestige Automatic Waterproof liners though); the color is pretty (on me it is a sort of dark green with a little bit of blue in it). You can blend and smudge it as you please.
I bought it mainly to see if I "reached for" a green eyepencil enough to make it worth investigating more green eyepencils...and I don't.
I've concluded that green eyeliner works best with brown or possibly hazel eyes. With green eyes, it just is not particularly versatile or flattering. That is my opinion; I feel green eyes are best off with purple eyepencils.
But if green is your thing, you might want to check it out. It's not an extraordinary, to-die-for kind of green, but it is a handy decent cheap green eyepencil; if you end up liking it, you've got a good bargain.
Oh yeah, a word of warning: sometimes the Prestige pencils have been sitting on the shelf for a while. That does not mean they're bad. It does mean, if your pencil does not go on smoothly, try giving it a good sharpening to shave off the "sitting around" layer.
