YES, I love a bit of eye pencil. I need to know NOW.

FrontRowFig Wed 17-Jun-09 14:55:11

Well i put it on at 8 am this mornign and it is SOFT, DIRECTIONABLE, and it is still lookign immaculate,

NOT on my eyebrrow bone thing,
not under my eyes panda style and the colour is sitll true!

I got it in Prussian
and its the best one EVER - and i haev tried a lot.

Well go on. It may only be little old me but I'll buy about six hundred once I know.

Is it one of those crayon-y type ones rather than a proper pencil? I always scratch myself or poke myself in the eye with the real pencil ones

Spaceman Wed 17-Jun-09 14:56:47

Sorry, xpost. Great one. I'm off to load up. Do you think it'll still look good on top of lid as well as eyebrow and underneath? I DO like a bit o' eyeliner you see.

chevre Wed 17-Jun-09 15:17:30

who comes up with these names though, 'bordeauxline'?

'utility grey' leads me to believe farrow and ball have been laying off some paint namers and they have been forced into makeup

FrontRowFig Wed 17-Jun-09 15:31:58
