drawing pencil is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST This is by far the best eyeliner ever. It stays put even when I go run outside in the heat. My mom asked me the other day had i touched up after running and i said no , she couldn't believe it. I have been using this for over 4 years before that i used Armani and Chanel which tended to run, but when i found this gem i never looked back. I even turned my friend on to this and since then its all she uses. I have sensitive eyes that get watery , but with this they never do, even though i use it on my waterline in my eye. I buy the MBrown. dark enough but not harsh. LOVE IT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring back Metallic Purple! Great eyepencil...soft application yet long-lasting and gives eyes luminescent look. However, noticed that certain pencils tend to be broken and therefore need to be repeatedly sharpened. Please bring back metallic purple!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once Set, These Do Not Budge These pencils are easy to use and do not drag. You can smudge them after first applying, but once they set, they are comparable to waterproof eyeliners. Please bring back the entire collection of drawing pencils. I am running out of my pink, antique gold and silver-blue colours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love but please bring back ME Purple 10! I absolutely loved the old color options for this pencil...specifically the ME Purple 10, which was a great shade that brightened up the face and was a cross between the various purple shades offered which are either too light, dark or glittery. I literally have bought the entire stock of these pencils online over the years and am using my last one! PLEASE consider bringing this shade back. I have literally tried dozens of pencils from various brands ranging from Chanel, Givenchy, YSL, Sephora and even drugstore brands globally! Please make a loyal customer happy :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is good but not outstanding... The pencil is soft and the color is great. But I don't see any difference between this one and those from M.A.C. The color still comes off a little after a couple hours. Maybe it's the issue of my skin...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So much potential The drawing pencil in Metallic Black (ME 01) was my absolute favorite for years. But as with several of my can't live without Shu items, it's been discontinued. Tried this new formulation in the M Gray 05 and there's a lot to like. Every eyeliner smudges on me and this stays put. The color is lovely & natural. However, I share the same complaints about the point dulling quickly, product waste during sharpening, inconsistencies between pencils (1 caked in a weird way, another fine). If they could make the same formula in a skinny retractable pencil, this could be my to go eyeliner forever (Shu, praying you'll consider). I'm Asian & see this color becoming the 'Seal eyebrow pencil' of eyeliners - just a super flattering color for my skin tone with incomparable staying power. I will continue to buy, while hoping the issues are addressed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great at fast but then First tried this liner on I loved it immediately for it is glidability and deep brown color. Later I wore it to swim and amazingly it stays on afterward without smudging! But then the flip side ...once the pencil gets dull it is impossible to draw a precise line or to shape it upward because of its texture. And worst of all, Shu does not sell any sharpener that fits the pencil size. I have used several sharpeners that I have from different brands and notjing can sharpen the lead to a point. So I am wasting a lot of it every time I sharpen it. Too bad I bought three before realizing this problem.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Product, But... There is nothing to say about waterproof and smudge-proof, are really good ! But just one big problem is not easy to draw a thin eyeliner and you always need to shape the pencils,that waste a lot. I just bought a liquid and a gel eye liner pen for a try and hope they will meet my needs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love the pencil, but how do you sharpen?? I bought the pencil and really like it, however, once it wore down initially I was unable to sharpen it with the sharpener that I had. I tried to scrape it down but it just kept breaking. I had to throw it away so it was a total waste of money. I don’t see any special sharpeners on thee web site so I am at a loss.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's water-proof BUT........ The colors of these drawing pencils are great! They are perfect for drawing on your eyelids and upper eyeliner. My experience in using their BLACK pencils was bad. 1. It's being used up so quickly. If you want solid black color on your eyelid, you have to apply more than one to two layers. 2. Water proofing is not enough... Throughout the day, you face produces oil by natural. Thus, the oil can kinda melt the eyeliner and cause smudge. I would not really recommend people to get their black pencils but the colorful ones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I Wanted to love these pencils but... No such luck. I Do love the color selection though. When drawing across my eyelid, the tip keeps breaking off! Every time I use it, even after putting in the fridge to try to "harden" them up, they still break off. I'd hoped it was maybe just the color I bought but after getting a few more, the Same thing happened with all of them. Ive Only had this issue with the Drawing Pencils. I've had no problems with the other eye liners. It's really a shame because of all the color choices of this item. I'll just be sticking to the few colors offered in the new Brave Beauty line.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not blendable at all I love the color M black purple, but it is not blendable at all. It peels and flakes easily if you try to blend. It glides well and lasts, so if you like liquid or gel eyeliners, this is for you., but not for me. So disappointing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It kept breaking!!! Sorry about the rating, but I really am disappointed!!! I bought one of this drawing pencil when I was travelling in Japan, and it was amazing! I really liked it! So I ordered another color from your website. However, the very first time I used this brand new drawing pencil, the point of the pencil lead broke....... and then I used a pencil sharpener to sharpen it, and it broke again....... so now I only used this drawing pencil twice, but there was only half of the pencil left!!!!! No kidding!! It was really frustrating when I used this "new" drawing pencil... especially before I was heading to a date and I cannot finish the eye liner and it took me half hour to sharpen it again and again and again and again because it broke every time I sharpened it.........

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this used to be my holy grail eye pencil but.... They discontinued my color- M Brown 02, which is perfect for a face that is starting to age. (The black is too harsh). When Shu discontinued being carried in stores, such as Barneys, I bought all the M Brown 02 pencils that they had left in stock. Well, I just used my last one, and when I went online to order more, I found out that my color is discontinued! I ordered the chestnut brown pencil, but they seem to have changed the formula, as the tip breaks off while you are using it, causing a waste of product from re-sharpening on several occasions, & if you go over an area with the pencil, it kind of "peels" and flakes off, so the line is not uniform. (you see skin in the line). It's worse than some of the less expensive pencils that can be bought in the drugstore. Also, I have been having allergies to the new formulation, which I never had before with the old formula. My eyes tear up until I remove it with remover. This is SO DISAPPOINTING! The M Brown 02 was the absolute best pencil on the market. I recommended it to all my friends. The new colors & formulations do not compare & I would not buy these again unless they go back to the old formula. Remember Old Coke & New Coke? Sometimes change is not good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Honestly, I used to love Shu Uemura but they always seem to discontinue the best products, one being the original Drawing Pencil eyeliner in M Brown. I used it for many years. It was my holy grail pencil. I was told that the dark brown would be the same but it is definitely not the same. It goes on wet, and transfers to my upper lid, and when it dries , it is waay too dry and flaky. it is not blend able and it stings my eyes. Even the color is not that nice. I don't know what happened to their products but they seem to replace them with mediocre ones. I used to wear the Face Architect smoothing fluid which was the best foundation ever, and they discontinued that.
