The formula is supposed to have "rich color pigments" that have a "creamy feel for ultra-fluid application" and can be used on the "lashline and waterline." It's a firmer, stiffer consistency used in these dual-ended pencils, which makes them less comfortable to use and more to tugging/dragging on my lash line. The pigmentation ranged from shade to shade, and some were more or less buildable than others. They had decent wear but I could not get these to apply well to my waterline--they just didn't seem to transfer onto the waterline much.

This dual-ended kohl pencil lines, defines, accents, and frames the eyes for a mesmerizing gaze. TOM FORD Shade & Illuminate Eye Kohl Duo features two shades: one to highlight and brighten and one to dramatically define. Rich color pigments glide comfortably over skin with a creamy feel for ultra-fluid application.
