As a daily eyeliner wearer ( it hides the smudges I tend to make with my mascara) I find pencil is the quickest and easiest for a soft, day appropriate look. Not being particularly loyal to any brand, I guess I just haven't found that HG liner, I like to try a different one every so often. Over the past couple of months I have been using Korres Soft Eyeliner Pencil in Metallic Brown (a very cool toned brown) and while I have found it easy to apply, soft and easily blended. I find it to have no staying power. To get around this problem, I have been using it just for smokey effects, but I like my products to be versitile and this just falls short. The search for the perfect liner pencil continues.
