In addition to their Ocho Loco pencil set (which I squee'd over in this post), they also released this new Double-Ended Eye Pencil Set, which contains two tried-and-trues, one almost-exclusive shade (Corrupt, which previously appeared in the UD15 eye pencil collection), and one brand-new shade called Sabbath, as well as one of their fantabulous eye pencil sharpeners (which I own multiples of, by the way):
