The product: A twist up pencil liner.
The packaging: Being part of Too Cool For School's Dinoplatz collection means this liner's packaging is covered in illustrations of tall buildings and dinosaurs. Awesome. It also conveniently comes with its own smudger and sharpener in the lid.
The colour: A good old black.
The application: What bothers me about this liner is that even if you sharpen it extremely well, it's still quite a chunky pencil. I'm used to thin pen liners so using this is quite challenging for me. Also, the application will depend on the weather: if it's cold, the liner will drag a little when you apply it but if it's very hot, it becomes extremely creamy and hard to control.
The road test: What this liner does extremely well is that it lasts a very long time with minimal smudging or fading. I also swatched it on my hand and ran it under the tap and it survived pretty well!

Overall: If you like drawing thick lines and want a long lasting pencil liner then this is for you! Just keep it in the fridge if the weather gets too hot.
