The color blends somewhat well to my complexion, and it gives more definition than powder. I like that there are no unsightly red hues on my brows and I could use this if I want to extend my eyebrows (which I did), create more definition and shape, and sharpen or flatten my eyebrow arch, depending on the mood. The texture though is waxier than the Lingering pencils, so what I do here is to "draw" the tail first and then blend the product to my brows with a stiff angled brush for a more natural look. If I want my product to stay put more, I set the pencil with eyebrow powder.
This isn't retractable though, and it does need periodic sharpening, which could be troublesome for most of us. However, in my case, I only need a little of this product so it lasts quite long. So far, it hasn't disappointed me. This color goes well with Beguile brow set and Charcoal Brown eyeshadow to set.
