Advantages: Great staying power, intense colour
Disadvantages: A little pricey
I do not wear much make-up but I do like to line my top lids to enhance my eyes and I love this quick liner. I have mine in 'Moss' and find that it compliments my dark green eyes very well. I paid £14 for a 0.3g pencil from my local Clinique stockist.
I looks like any other eye pencil in shape. It has two pull off lids that are both silver and the body of the pencil is silver, with a colour band indicating the actual colour of the product. Removing the first lid you have a pencil, which is smooth and creamy, at the other end of the pencil, removing the second lid you have a soft pencil shaped applicator which you use to blend. The creamy formula glides easily along my top eye lids evenly, without dragging the skin and leaving little gaps, so there is minimal need for reapplication, which is great for me as the longer I spend on my eyes the more of a mess I make of them.
The colour is quite intense, so for the day I apply lighlty and then use the blending applicator to tone it down a bit and for night I leave it as it to give maximum impact. I find that it lasts all day and does not smudge or need re-touching. It is water resistant and Ophthalomoically tested, it has never given me cause for any irritation. I use a little bit of eye make-up remover to remove it, and then finish washing my face with a gel based face wash, and I do not get any residue remaining. The product comes in a range of different shades, including purples, blues and browns.
Overall I am very pleased with this product, it is easy to use, washes off well and the fact that you get the blending brush adds to the appeal of the pencil overall. It is not the cheapest eye pencil, but the colour is good, it has staying power and it wears well. Overall I would recommend this product to others.
Summary: Great depth of colour, easy to apply.
