As you can see, all of the colors are beautiful! These pencils need to be manually sharpened, or else the tips will dull over time.
Here are swatches from left to right: Prolong Purple, Endless Emerald, Aqua Last, Pink Evermore, Eternal White, Continuous Almond, Stay-On Black, and Tenacious Brown. These swatches are without primer, and are only one swipe!
Prolong Purple is a deep purple with subtle silver shimmer. Endless Emerald is a forest green with subtle silver shimmer. Aqua Last is a bright blue, it has shimmer in it, but it's hardly noticeable. Pink Evermore is a soft pink that has tons of silver shimmer. Eternal White is a matte white, it is a bit patchy compared to the rest. Continuous Almond is a matte peachy shade. Stay-On Black is a super dark, matte black. Tenacious Brown is a matte chocolate brown.
Claims: Long-lasting (Up to 12 Hour wear), Easy to use, Water-Resistant, Crease-Proof, Paraben-Free, Made in Germany
Pigmentation: These are amazingly pigmented, you only need one swipe to get full color. There's no building up needed with these, which is a HUGE plus!
Finish/Texture: Half of these are matte, the other half are shimmery. The texture of these are super creamy, soft, and silky. They are the softest eye pencil I have ever tried. Ever!
Lasting Power: These lasted me all day, I believe that the 12 hour claim is true.
Packaging: These are a pencil, they will need to be manually sharpened. The caps on these are a bit loose-fitting, that's my only complaint about these.
Price/Availability: I paid $4 each at Walgreens, for the shades I bought. Jordana Cosmetics also sent me the entire line.

I was surprised at how well these performed. Like I said earlier, I honestly never had a good experience with shadow pencils before. I'm so glad that I decided to give these a try anyway, because they are amazing.
I wore these alone, as an eyeshadow base, and as an eyeliner (on my bottom lashline even) and I had no smudging. They apply so smoothly, and are super pigmented with one swipe. They are inexpensive, and the quality is simply wonderful. I still can't believe these are just four dollars. I feel like I cant say enough good things about these shadow pencils!
Thank you to Jordana Cosmetics, who provided me with these pencils! I'm so happy, because I could only find a few shades at the store.
