"Me Now Generation II" Eye and Lip liner pencils look and review

Hello! 
So today I'm gonna do a product review,as promised earlier, it's about those pencils I got as a gift from an ebay seller with one of my purchases.

This is as usual, my true and honest opinion about the product.

I would say that my overall first impression of the product was slightly bad because there was a kind of "plastic" smell when I opened the pack.

I think it's because of the wrapper used because now it doesn't have any smell whatsoever, which is more than fine by me.

The pigmentation is very good on the skin, you can get a good amount of colour with just one light swipe. It's also very easy to blend and to apply.
On the top is one swipe of the black pencil, on the bottom is a light swipe that I just run my finger over to see if it was easy to smudge.
Did the same with the red one too.

I decided to do a look after swatching them.
















Update:
Swatches of all the colours on my wrist, no primer applied.




 These colours are matte and don't have any shimmer except for the purple one.
 These are the colours that have a bit of shimmer to them.


 The matte liners, swatched on paper.
The shimmer liners, swatched on paper.

All in all I would give it a 8/10 because it's not waterproof, otherwise I really like them.

Thanks for reading and see you soon, 

Until then, Take care, 
Bye!

    1. Hi! Happy you like it! Actually the pencils don't twist out you need to sharpen them. To get the line nice and winged out, I sharpen the pencil before using it, and you have to try to not press it down too hard on your skin, also another good tip is to rest your elbow on a steady surface for more control of the line. I hope that helps. And thanks for stopping by! =)

    1. I bought these from Ebay (http://www.ebay.fr/itm/6-12-Eyeliner-Crayon-Levres-Fard-Ombre-a-Paupieres-Waterproof-Yeux-Maquillage-Pr-/290928276980?pt=FR_CP_Beaute_Maquillage&var=&hash=item43bcad35f4) but the different colours don't have specific names. Or at least I haven't noticed.
      I hope this helps though =) And thanks a lot for stopping by.

  8. Hi I just received this same packs myself, you mentioned sharpening the pencil eyeliner but my question is how do you sharpen the eyeliner if it's in a plastic tube? It's been killing me not knowing how to get the rest of the eyeliner to come out.
