        ...to answer the "I would recommend this to a friend" question. I'd say "maybe" for this product. That is I'd want them to be fully informed about what this pencil is and isn't.

        First, it is a pencil. It needs to be sharpened. And as a drawback, relatively frequently to hold the edge it needs for a fine line (my preference) right next to the upper lashes.

        Second, it is a gel. I like that but it is NOT forgiving through smudging if you make an error. In fact, there is no smudge "eraser" end on this pencil. It is meant to go on and stay there, so if you have an "oops..." it is harder to fix. I note some folks have been disappointed there is no 'eraser" end with this. But that makes sense as this is not a product to be smudged out that way.

        Third, because it is a gel, it glides on and is so much better than BB's older pencils, which were one of the few weak links in the BB line. This one is much improved.

        Fourth, although there are several colors, I've been very happy with Smoke, a charcoal gray that is a great neutral, not quite as severe as black and does very good things for my green eyes.

        Fifth, you get what you pay for in BB product quality and I very much appreciate that this pencil, like all the product line, is non irritating to sensitive eyes like mine. Woohoo!

        Sixth, this really is long wearing. But with this drawback, at least for me, that it does not come off easily with my Bobbi Brown Extra cleanser balm (which I love above all other cleansers I have EVER used for my dry and sensitive skin). All other BB eye products, including the older pencils, remove easily with the Extra balm. Not so much this one.

        So, some good things. Some "could be better" things. I'll stick with this one until BB introduces something better. But I can't give it an unqualified recommendation to friends.

        I am a long-time Bobbi Brown fan; I have been using her products for close to 15 years. I love the soft, natural look that they give me - people see me, not heavy makeup. I have many of her products in my makeup kit: cleanser, moisturizer, eye cream, foundation, cover-up, eye shadow, bronzer, lipstick, mascara and eye pencils. I LOVED her creamy eye pencils, which applied beautifully, was easy to work with, and (if you used eyelid primer) generally stayed in place. Unfortunately, she discontinued the creamy pencils and has replaced them with the long-wear pencils. I have tried her long-wear eye pencil and keep trying to love it - I just don't. The product is long-wearing, but doesn't blend the way her creamy pencils did - I find that it provides a very harsh look (think 1980's raccoon eyes). The pencil is hard to apply in a thin line, and doesn't have the softness (either in appearance or application) that her creamy eye pencils did. Apply it carefully, because it sets within 30 seconds - there is no room for mistakes with this newer long-wearing pencil. I am hoarding my creamy eye pencils - and have gone back to the Lancome Le Crayon Khol that I used to use - it's the closest match to the Bobbi creamy eye pencil that I've been able to find. Wish she'd bring back the creamy eye pencil - this one is simply too harsh!

        Okay, but pencil breaks off!

        By 

        from New York, NY

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil:

        I've been wearing this pencil (mahogany) for a few years. I decided to write a review since a couple weeks ago, I was convinced to try a new pencil (which I no longer see on here). That pencil was AWFUL. It broke over and over and over that I had to return it. I just bought two of the mahogany and at my first wear - it BROKE! As it always has in the past. Perhaps BB shouldn't make the pencil so sharp??? It should be more round? No one can apply this when it comes out of the box. I'm surprised that BB still hasn't figured it out. Just like the last pencil I bought. Honestly, I'm thinking of going back to MAC.

        Hard, uneven- waste of time

        This eyeliner was difficult to get onto my lids. After all the tugging and pulling the result was an uneven mess. It was a pain to get off once putting on so one star for long-wear, I suppose. Received as a free full sized sample and have no option but to throw it away

        I just bought eye pencil 2 days agao from Changi duty free shop. It's my first time buying eye pencil & when I try to apply Color broke off from the pencil like other reviewers reviewed here. Cannot put pressure to ensure the thin line to draw. A bit disappointed.

        I've had the same problem as the other reviewers. This was fine until the colored part came out of the pencil. I've had this happen with two different pencils.

        Always broken inside

        About Me Classic Style

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil:

        I like this eye pencil for tighline... it stays on but the problem is on everyone one of these I have, the pencil color part breaks inside, it's loose, you can feel it shake. That makes it hard to get enough pressure for a good tightline and eventually the broken piece falls out. Frustrating because I like the formula.

        Disappointed! Ruined two pairs of contacts!

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil:

        I should have known better than to buy this after the Bobbi Brown make up artist applied it and it ruined my contact lenses right then. I even asked her about it and she said "it is waterproof so that shouldn't happen, but since it is long lasting, it will probably stay on the lens"! I decided to try to apply to the upper lid, right on my lash line, and wait 10 minutes before putting in my contacts to give it time to set. Nope. This stuff smudges, runs off and is a mess. And I am now out two pairs of contact lenses as a result. Not very happy, I wish I had read these reviews before purchasing.

        Did the Formula or Manufacturing Change?

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil:

        I have used this pencil for many years and have loved it. The last two that I ordered have been totally disastrous/disappointing and I wonder if the formula and/or manufacturing changed? Issues: 1) Pencil itself is so soft that you can barely control it enough to draw a neat line...just a mess where it used to be a nice, clean line, 2) the pencil material pulls out of the wood around it and breaks, 3) sharpening is a mess...little tip breaks off...just too soft. This product is now just a mushy mess and I will not be ordering it again. What happened? Used to be a great product?

        just terrible!

        By 

        from Ontario

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil:

        I find that the mini pencil that I received is defective, or just not up to BB standards. The makeup itself is loose inside the plastic "pencil" so it breaks off when trying to apply, and one cannot get enough pressure to actually apply the eyeliner. I had to sharpen it at once because the makeup inside was too dry to make any kind of mark on my skin. I would not purchase this product, and am disappointed in the quality of this pencil.

        Comments about Bobbi Brown Long Wear Eye Pencil:

        Agree with some of the other reviews. This used to be a great pencil. Not so much anymore...something has changed. Have to be constantly sharpening it and it barely lasts a month. The color inside breaks, just awful. It must be a different formula but of course the same high price. Sad.
        It is however fairly long lasting.
