Oops! I've completely forgotten about this product as I've sooo many eye pencils in my stash-It's been a while since I used eye pencils for eye lining as I went back to using liquid eyeliner. Blame K-Palette, my dear eye pencils! :p
Anyway! I'm reviewing Bobbi Brown's Long-Wear Eye Pencil in jet from the namesake collection.
BOBBI BROWN LONG-WEAR EYE PENCIL IN JET IN DETAIL
The shade I have is called Jet, and it's described by bobbibrowncosmetics.com as "A blackest black" shade. It is also dubbed as the pencil form of Bobbi's famous Long-Wear Gel Liner, although I can't do a comparison as I've never tried the latter.

Consistency is rich, soft, and ultra blendable--it goes on smoothly, and the softness of the eyeliner makes it great for people with sensitive eyes. Its pigmentation is comparable to a gel liner: One swipe imparts intense color coverage onto my lids. Finish is matte, and it settles quite fast!
BOBBI BROWN LONG-WEAR EYE PENCIL IN JET IN ACTION
Its jet- black shade and matte finish gives my eyes better emphasis as compared to liquid eyeliner, and deepens them effectively. It stays pretty much intact with minimal fading at the end of the day, although it smudges for a bit on my lids around midday. If you have hooded or semi- hooded eyes like mine, this ain't your best bet. If you have normal skin on your lids, you won't have a problem with this product. If you have dry skin on your lids, its creamy consistency will inhibit flaking, and its soft tip will glide easily on your skin type. For gals with oily skin on the lids like mine, it's best used with an eye primer.
I find that it's a better eyeshadow base, especially if you want to achieve a stunning smokey eye. I'd like to try the original gel liner as I've heard a lot of good things about it. :)
