Eye Sharpies are great because you can make a very nice defining line quickly and easily. I like to make mine thin and as close to the lashes as possible. I always put a liner on, usually after I apply eye shadow, to just make my eyes really stand out. This pencil is Dark Chocolate in color, not black, but a brown black, which can be softer and some women will prefer. This is a test item and limited in quantity. let's see how she does!
