I bought two of these - one gold, one green. I use the green one a lot more but generally only the green end - the darker, finer end is brilliant if you really want to make a statement because they are super pigmented - being fifty, I need to be a bit more subtle these days. I tend to use the green end as an eyeliner and smudge it a bit. It lasts all day and has become a staple. I will need to order a spare.
