I really hope these are waterproof and glide on easily. I wonder if they are supposed to be used as an eyeshadow or eyeliner (or both)?

Any swatches up anywhere *with their names*? That "iconosquare" snapshot is such a tease... Appears to have 19 of the 21 colors, and i can figure out a lot of them, but not all. What's the one in the 2nd row down, 2nd from the left? Has a sort of pinkish pewter look...

I welcome waterproof but I'm not always a friend of Pro Longwear. We'll see. I like a few shades though.

I love them. Already bought 8 sticks. The staying power is fantastic. You need to work quick though, once they set, they don't move at all.

These already came out in Australia. I picked up Lilacked and Iris Eyes.

So far I'm really liking them. They aren't as pigmented as cream shadow sticks from Laura Mercier, By Terry etc. but they build up nicely. I wore Lilacked today, no primer, and it lasted the full day, even through my run. No fading, creasing, smudging at all. I'm definitely getting a couple more.

Just received my order. I got 3 pencils. I will have to return all 3 of them. I am allergic to gluten, rice and nuts. These contain rice. It's a shame that they don't post there ingredients and when you call to ask about ingredients, they are no longer accommodating. Tried googling them and could not find ingredients. Waste of my time & money!

I use them as e/s only. They are also perfect as a base. You just need to work quickly. Once they are dry, they stay forever. Love them.
I'm still working with these to find the best way to get an even base application before it dries.

I wish MAC would reduce the price on these since they are in the 'GOOD-BYE' section. I've been wanting to try these but not at $22.

Oh, no! I'm putting together another MAC order, and there are several i wanted... guess i better get them soon!

I really like the two i have - i got very neutral ones: At the Beach – soft skin nude - and Bleached Out Beige – dirty metallic with gold pearl - and use AtB in my water line. NOTHING ever stays in my left eye longer than about 30 seconds, but it manages to stay almost an hour...

My local store had very few of them, even not long after the collection first came out. And i know i'd rather swatch if i'm going to spend money on some (certainly not going to buy all 6! I am not made of money!). I'll be down there next Thursday to check out the 4 things i'm considering from Nutcracker Sweet, so i'll ask if they have any...

These are the ones i'm thinking about. Any opinions?
Ever Evergreen – emerald green (i can probably skip this - i have two teal-ish shadow pencils from NARS)
Crème-Filled – soft champagne w/gold pearl (probably too close to BOB)
Iris Eyes – light blue grey w/pearl
Tea Leaves – mid-tone dirty mauve
Lilacked – light purple w/gold reflect
Sweet Viola – soft metallic violet
