My Experience with Streetwear Eye Definer in Shade 08 Black:
Packaging: The usual styled pencil made of wood and a black colored pencil tip. The whole pencil is colored silver with details printed in black. There is a portion at the end of the pencil colored in black, I guess to indicate that the eyeliner is black too. The pencil has a clear see-through plastic cap to cover the open end of the pencil.
Colour, Texture and Staying Power: The color of this eye definer is black as mentioned in the title before, but however it is not the exact black that any one would want. It is a sort of faded black. This eye definer does not give that heavy jet black around the eyes, I do not think that my eyes catch any attention with this eye definer.
The texture of this eye definer is smooth, but not creamy enough to give the color in one shot. It glides well on the lash line (I have tried it only on my upper lash line). The pencil is not hard on the sensitive skin of the eyes. Repeated swipes on the lash line did not hurt my eye lid.
Staying power is just about 4 hours with some smudging observed on my eye lid. I usually apply my daily cream on my eyes before using any eye product. I believe it is because of the cream, this eye definer smudged on my eyelid. Else, this product is not creamy enough to get smudged.

How it works: Drawing a line with this pencil around the eyes is just very simple and easy. No much talent required as it will not go around messing the look. But it requires quite a few swipes. After about 4-5 swipes on the lash line there is some amount of black visible, But by then my application turns out to be real thick and broad. And then I will have to again shape the line I drew, which will subsequently make my eyeliner more thick. Well, sometimes I like this brad thick eye liner look when I am in no make up mood for my eyes. No tugging or clumping of the product on the lash line.
It is easily washed with plain water, a little rub with the fingers and it is gone. But if at all it gets into the eyes it stings very badly. I had this experience. It pricked for about 4-5 minutes. I have not come across any eye product which behaves so badly on the eyes. Street Wear Eye Definer looses all its points here.
