This was the second purchase I made from Helen E with a discount voucher and I chose the ‘grey’ shade which is a semi metallic formula. The pencil itself is quite slim and a good size with the simple Helen E logo embossed on the side. The pencil is covered by a long sliver cap and on the other end is a smudger, also with its own protective cap. I like this design as both ends of the pencil are protected from damage in your makeup case. The smudger is fantastic. It is more rounded and soft on the end then many other brands and makes it easy to smudge the colour without dragging it back off the skin. The pencil is soft and does not drag or catch the delicate eye area and it is highly pigmented so you do not have to repeatedly layer your product. The pencil is supposed to be waterproof. Whilst I did find that it stayed intense all day it can in fact smudge but this is easily rectified with a good primer. I can easily remove this product with a good quality eye makeup remover. Due to the soft formula and smudger you can also blend this pencil onto your lids in place of eyeshadow which in this colour looks stunning!
I am really impressed with the quality of this pencil and the intenseness of the colour. I highly recommend the purchase
