Right away I love the size of this eye pencil - it's tiny, which means super portability. It has now found a home in my bag ^.^ The formula is fantastic, soft and buttery! Although honestly, I have some really good eye pencils (Stila Smudge Sticks, Pixi Endless Silky - more colors coming soon!) so I'm pretty spoiled in this aspect. Which is to say between Stila with a wide range of colors and Pixi at $12 a pop I'm all set xD
- 0L Matte Black: a matte but soft smokey black, perfect to be on the go if you need to look put-together at the last minute, but if you're going for glamor, this won't do, because it's too soft a black. In fact, it's probably the "lightest" black pencil I own (see comparison swatches below)! I like the color a lot though, solely because my lash and brows are thin and sparse, and thus faint, so an intense black is too harsh on me.
This comparison line-up is actually missing Pixi Endless Silky in 01-Black Noir, but it's pretty much identical to Stila Stingray, a matte and intense jet black. Will review the Buxom and Smashbox pencils soon.
