      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A nice eyeliner if it stays in the tube!

      I bought this eyeliner when I was visiting the Isle of Man. It was a treat because they are not cheap! I paid £12 for mine and thought that because I like their other products I would love this one.

      At first, I was really happy. The design is sleek and stylish. One end has a twist up 'pencil' and the other has a sponge 'smudger'.

      What I like about this:

      The liner itself is easy to use, just remove the top, twist a little and some of the liner pops up from the tube - a little like a pen. I thought this would be perfect for me because I HATE sharpening eye liners - I always lose the sharpener and think it is a waste for what goes in the bin when sharpened. The liner is soft and feels nice on my eyes and I ADORE the smudger. This was brilliant. After applying the liner, I simply 'stroke' over the line with the sponge end and it creates a gorgeous 'smoky' look. It is very soft and creamy

      The colour stays on for hours, I never had a problem with that and it came off easily enough with my make up remover. I had no problems with irritable eyes either which I am prone to.

      What I did not like about this:

      Maybe it's just me but when putting the lid back on the 'pen', as it is very narrow, it would touch the end of the 'liner' and break it off. Even this wasn't so bad because I thought I shouldn't be so clumsy but the thing that really annoyed me was that the lid hadn't gone on properly at all and ALL of the liner had fallen out in my make up back, leaving a big expensive mess.

      I probably wouldn't buy one of these again because of the expense and I just don't have the confidence it the product again.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good quality eye pencil which does not need sharpening, great colour without layering

      If you have read my other Clinique review you will know I love products which make my weekday morning routine just that little bit quicker and easier. This product ticks all the boxes for me.

      As with all Clinque's range - it is fragrance free, because this is an eye product it is also Ophthalmologist tested - might sound like another skincare brand claim - however its very important to me as I have sensitive eyes and occasionally wear contact lenses.

      The product as with all of Clinique's make-up range comes in their floral packaging box. Once opened The Quickliner is a slim pencil like shape with the eye pencil one eye and the other end has a smugger tool to create a smoky eye look.

      Back to morning - This takes me about 20 seconds to apply to both eyes. The pencil is a very soft, crayon like as opposed to a pencil. It does not need sharpening, instead you reveal more of the crayon by twisting the barrel. Personally I don't like the old fashioned eye pencils which need sharpening as I find the pencil too hard and needs repeated rubbing over the same area to achieve a build up of colour.

      I only use this on my bottom inside eye lid, I literally need to sweep it back and forth over each eye once to achieve a dark black colour leaving my eyes well defined, complimenting my other make-up and ready to go to work, this is important to me as some eye pencils I have used in the past needed the colour to be layered up, back and forth, I found this irritated my delicate eye area.

      I have not used the smugger tool in all the years I have used the product as I don't use this on my eye lids - I prefer a liquid eye-liner for here and only use when I am going out.

      So how does it last? I find the product lasts all day - at least until I come home from work, If I come home and am going out for the evening I apply another quick slick of this to freshen up my make-up. I have never had a problem with this clumping in the corners of my eyes or running.

      The actual product itself usually lasts me about a year - I can't understand the recommendation to throw out eye make-up after six months - I would never finish this in six months despite using everyday and I certainly would not consider throwing it out especially since I refuse to share my make up with anybody else.

      Value for Money: I think so - you get the smugger tool, the product lasts me a year of everyday application and it saves time - so quick to apply no need to build up colour as it is so effective and no need to sharpen.

      I hope you agree and would love to hear your feedback especially if you a like-minded make-up lover like me!

      Happy Shopping!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      An okay eye pencil, but a of a smudge risk and definitely not a great one as I had hoped

      As you might know if you have read some of my other reviews, I am a big fan of Clinique. A lot of their skincare products are daily essentials for me and I also like many of their makeup items. However, this Quickliner for Eyes is one which has slightly disappointed me.

      I have the shade "01 intense black" and I bought it two weeks ago as I needed a second item to get my Bonus Time gift in Boots. I had heard good things about these eyeliners, specifically that they are longwearing and smudgeproof, so I decided to try one.

      === Packaging ===

      The eyeliner pencil comes in a small cardboard box with the shade noted on the bottom. The pencil itself is of normal thickness but slightly longer than many other eyeliner pencils because it has two ends. The main end has a long cap covering the actual eyeliner pencil. The eyeliner is non-sharpen, and you twist the body of the pencil to get more product, like a retractable pencil. This twist mechanism temporarily got jammed on my pencil after only a few uses. The other end has a small sponge tip designed for smudging the harsh line of your eyeliner to create a softer look or a smoky eye effect.

      === Application ===

      I generally find eyeliner pencils very easy to apply and I prefer them over liquid, which can be trickier and messier. This eyeliner applies smoothly and easily without too much tugging at the delicate skin of the eyelid. Personally I only apply it to my upper lash line, as I have sensitive eyes and would never risk lining my waterline so I can't speak for how well it applies to that area.

      Because the eyeliner cannot be sharpened with a pencil sharpener, after a few uses I found that the end was slightly flattened and produced a line which was a bit thicker than I would like. It makes the eyeliner look a bit too dramatic for day time, especially as this is such an intense black. I tried to apply it just with the edge to achieve a much thinner line. This makes it look better, but you do need a steady hand and it would be simpler if I could just sharpen it to a neater point.

      The colour really is an intense black as the name suggests, so I was happy with that.

      The smudging point works as expected but most times I haven't used it, because I prefer a clean thin line.

      === How does it wear throughout the day? ===

      This is where my disappointment comes in. I had been told by a few people that this eyeliner lasts all day in perfect condition. Sadly for me that has not been the case! On quite a few occasions wearing this I looked in the mirror after a few hours and noticed that a little bit of black had made its way under my eyes. I had not touched or rubbed my eyes, so I wasn't sure how it had happened. I don't have this problem with my usual favourite eyeliner! Tiny specks of the Quickliner seem to migrate away from the eyelid. It is then quite hard to remove these specks without messing up the rest of my eye makeup, particularly my concealer when it ends up under the eye. A bit of black there can obviously make it look like you have shadows or circles, which is what I spend effort removing in the morning!

      On the occasions when this has not happened, the eyeliner did stay on in good condition until the end of the day, but I feel it is quite "risky" to wear it now as I can never tell whether it will stay put or not.

      === Removal ===

      If it hasn't smudged on its own throughout the day, it can easily be removed with Clinique Take The Day Off eye makeup remover on a cotton pad. No vigourous rubbing is required, just lightly press the pad against the eyelid and make some light motions, and the eyeliner will be completely removed. Other similar oil based removers should be equally effective on it.

      === Overall ===

      I don't feel like I can really recommend this, as it is just not reliable. The fact you can't sharpen means the lines can be too thick, and it can sometimes wander down the face on its own! I did expect better from Clinique and I think there are much better eye pencils on the market.

        Disadvantages

        A great eye liner

        When I received this Clinique quick eyes eyeliner for my Christmas present of my sister in law I did think it would just end up at the bottom of my make up bag as I can not seem to wear eyeliner as it is very heavy and irritates my eyes. However as with most of my Clinique products I really have been presently surprised with it.

        The pencil itself comes in a little tube and it has the liner one side and on the other it has a soft pointed sponge which is used as the smudger.You gently twist the middle of the liner and the product smoothly twists up. It starts of with a round edge so it is soft on you eyes and I found it very easy to apply.

        I start from the corner of my eye and work my way out and I found that it glides really softly across my lids.Usually my eye would start watering from the slightest tug but this seems to flat across them without causing any irritation.Although it is very gentle on applying on my eyes the results are great a lovely defined line across my eyelid that as I chooses a lighter colour looks very noticeable but not too heavy.

        Then I can turn the liner around and use the smudger to gently create a smoky look on my eyes.I find I need little effort to do this a few small strokes and it creates maximum effect which is great when I am in a rush. You do not need to push hard on the pencil or smudger for them to work soft small actions seem to get a lot further.

        When I put it on in the morning I find that it last at least 8 hours as when I return from work the liner is still very visible and although a little faded has faired very well after a day running around here there and everywhere.

        My only problem with this liner is I tend to find that once every few uses it decides to give up twisting until you give it a little shake. After this it glides up as it first did but can be a little annoying if I am in a rush in the morning.

        It retails at £13 that for me seems high but the amount of use I have got out of it I do think it is worth its retail. There is a range of colours to this line as so I think there is definitely a colour for everyone. I have had mine for 7 months now and it is not even a quarter the way down the stick although I do not use it everyday as I prefer using eye shadow as a definer.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A super product

        I have been using the Clinique Quickliner on a daily basis for about four years now. That's going some for me! I love make-up and I enjoy trying different products, so for me to stay faithful to one item is quite an accolade.

        For background, I am 52 years old, so have a few (!) wrinkles and crows feet around the eyes. It is really important to me that an eyeliner stays in place and doesn't 'bleed' into my skin, even if I get hot or wet. This one doesn't move. I can apply it at seven in the morning and it still looks good after a day's work. Yet it still comes off easily with standard eye make-up remover.

        It is very easy to apply, and is completely 'non-scratchy' on the delicate skin around the eyes. It glides on smoothly, and although there is a sponge blender at one end of the pencil, I never use this. The liner has an instant soft appearance without blending, and if I do want to smudge it in a bit, then I just use a clean finger. I love the plastic casing, which is much more practical than a wooden pencil. It just needs a gentle twist to ease the liner up - no sharpening required.

        Quickliner is available in 12 shades. My favourite for daily wear is Smokey Brown. It emphasises my eyes while still looking quite natural and subtle. I did buy a Really Black for evening wear, but I found it a bit bold for my older skin. When that ran out I replaced it with Black/Brown, which is a bit less dramatic though still a more 'made-up' look for evenings.

        Although I am middle-aged, this is a product that is equally suited to younger women. My eighteen year old daughter regularly borrows this eye-liner (yes, I know how unhygienic that is!) and would buy it herself if she could afford it. She uses cheaper ones on a daily basis, and nicks mine when she's going out and wants a more luxurious and long-lasting look.

        Which brings me to price! At £13.50 it is quite expensive, but I do feel that I get value for money. I apply it lightly every day, and it probably lasts about three months. My daughter applies it more boldly and she could get through it within a month if I let her! And Clinique regularly hold what they call 'Bonus Time' at various retailers, where they give a free bag of goodies (usually miniature samples of various products in their range) when you buy two items. Recently, one of the two purchases has had to be from their skin care range, which is a shame, but it still makes the Quickliner more affordable AND gives the opportunity to try some new products.

        A definite thumbs up from me.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great product that is reliable but very expensive for long it lasts

        Eye liner is a girl's best friend. Whether used to subtly outline the eyes or in a dramatic Amy Winehouse fashion; a good eyeliner is a must for any make-up bag.

        I buy a lot of Clinique products mainly because they are allergy tested and from experience I do not come out with any rashes unlike some make up leads me to react. I regularly buy the quick liner and have quite a few different shades. I like the quick liners for the simple reason that I don't have to sharpen them and the colour lasts a long time on my eyes.

        The product

        The quick liner is a shaped like a pen with two lids on wither end. The small see through plastic lid reveals a smudge-tip so you can blend the eye liner and smudge it. The other lid in silver reveals the colour tip. The pen works on a propelling motion. When the colour is running out simply give the tube of the pen a little turn and the colour stick is propelled out of the pen and ready for you to stick on your eyes. I like not having to sharpen them; it's cleaner and I also find the pen more delicate to use on my eyes. Sometimes using a wooden pencil style kohl eye liner if it isn't well sharpened I've had nasty little bits of wood cut my eye lids and scratch them. However I sometimes find the end of the quick liners can be a little too thick. The inability to sharpen them prevents them reaching a very sharp point and can sometimes, with certain looks, be a little harder to control. I have tried to "sharpen" the point by trying to shape it on the back of the hand and find this messy, wasteful and it still does not achieve a completely thin point.

        I never use the sponge smudge tip at the end as I have better brushes that can smooth out the eye liner and smudge it better than it can. I find it drags the skin and tugs at it. I use a thin pointed brush because I can have more control over where I want to eyeliner to go. Clinque use this sponge tip as a selling point which annoys me a little bit because its only a bit of foam stuck on the end of the pen! However, for some people they may find that it works a treat and helps them create the perfect look.
        The pencils come in a variety of shades; 12 different colours to be precise. I love that there is so much option with colour and have purchased a number of different colours over the years. . If I was singularly reviewing the "true khaki" green coloured quick liner or the blue/grey, I would be giving them a completely different rating to the "black/brown." The reason for this is that the colour stick is in these two colours is really hard and when applying to the eye they pull the skin. You really have to push on in order to get the colour to make any sort of mark. Sometimes it feels so hard that it scratches the skin! When I first experienced this problem I thought it had gone hard because the lid didn't fit properly. It was only when I bought another one that I realised that it was a common issue. The black/brown one though is perfect and is soft enough to leave defined lines, sliding across the skin with ease. It feels really gentle, especially on my delicate morning skin!

        I find the colours are long lasting however once applied they seem to last the duration. I have had the eye liner on for over 10 hours some days and it has not feathered or bled much. Similarly in warm climates the eye liner manages to stay in good shape. I like the reliability of the product. It means you don't have to keep rushing off to the ladies to touch up! I also find the eye liners water resistant. I've been to a few weddings where I have had a little joyful weep and the eye liner has managed to stay in place. Due to this I thought that it may be a little tough to remove but it isn't and slides off with ease at the end of the night.

        Overall

        The price of the quick liner is £13.50 for 0.3g of colour. On opening my first ever quick liner I was disappointed at how small the colour stick was and at that time I was only paying £11.00 for it. I find that the quick liner lasts well though the day but as a whole does not last very long at all. If I buy the black brown one; the colour I choose for day to day wear, it will hardly last me a month. For me this is most disappointing and to save myself spending over £160 pounds on eye liner a year I have had to compliment my make up bag with kohl standard eye liners that last about double the length of time of the quick liner. It's a shame though because I really enjoy using them and especially miss the quick liner when I am struggling to find a pencil sharpener at half past six on a morning!

        Clinique Quickliner For Eyes

        I have never really spent a lot of money on my make up and mum my tends to buy quite expensive things when she goes through a certain phase and then she won't like it, so I know it will come my way to try out. Clinique's Quickliner for eyes happened to be one of those products and as soon as I tried it I immediately fell in love with it- no exaggeration! I have always loved their product I just think they are amazing quality!

        Basically, this is an eye liner made by Clinique named Quickliner. They do this in many different shades (I have this in 14 Navy and recommend!) and this is not a pencil, this is the version where you twirl to release the colour which is a lot more practical in my eyes! The reason why this first gabbed my attention is probably because of the style of liner.

        This is unlike any ordinary line, it has two ends, one for the colour and the other is a small foam applicator shaped in a point that you can use to blend in your make up or other different things. The liner itself follows a silver theme like other Clinique products and it has white writing on it.

        As I have the liner in front of me, I will give exact details. When I twist it round, the liner is released slowly and one of the great things about this is that the liner is secure and it definitely will not break, as I find this one of the most irritating things to happen to eye liners!

        You can tell the high quality as soon as you draw on your eye lids or on your inner lid because it is thick and does not smudge. It makes your eyes stand out from the crowd and it also makes them look a lot prettier and not too over the top!

        Another good thing about this liner is probably the fact that it is great for is creating many effects on your eyes as it comes with the applicator too!

        The only thing is this may be too expensive for some people as this is around £15.00 it is a little pricey but you do get what you pay for definitely!

        You can get this from Boots, Selfriges and lots more places!

        5/5 Holly x

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          This eyeliner is quick and easy to apply, but gives more than great results!

          I love skin care products from the Clinique range, and I usually only end up using their make-up when it comes free in a gift for buying Clinique products. However recently when Clinique were offering another free gift, I was waiting to be served at the busy counter and started looking through the make-up products. I noticed the Quickliner and before I know it I'd put a skincare product back and I was armed with one of these instead!

          I don't wear eyeliner too often mainly for 2 reasons, one being that I don't spend too much time on eye make-up when I'm going to work for the day, I just don't see the point. The other reason is that I often struggle with them. Liquid eyeliners end up too messy, or I've chosen a black shade which doesn't seem to suit my eyes, or I'm attempting to use a pencil which ends up hurting my eyes making them water! This Quickliner from Clinique however seemed different.

          The packaging states that this eyeliner is long wearing. This is pretty essential as applying eye liner can be clumsy, and I didn't want to spend time applying this only for it to fade off half way through the day. It also says its 'creamy smooth' and you can actually tell this just from looking at it. If you ever shop at a Clinique counter you can actually look at the testers for this product and as I was having a look I was impressed at the actual eyeliner. It's not a pencil that needs sharpening like your standard eyeliners, but it has a soft looking nib, which is actually quite small and precise. You can swivel the pencil up as you use it, so you don't need to faff around with pencil sharpeners, however it won't retract so don't test this out if you decide to buy one!
          Another great feature is that if you don't like the idea of a more precise and small tipped eyeliner, the other end of this pencil actually has a smudger, meaning you can gently smudge the eyeliner once it's on your eyes to give you the look that you want.

          There's a brilliant range of shades to choose from, which you don't often get with cheaper brands. I decided not to opt for a black shaded eyeliner as I find my eyes don't really suit that shade, and I wasn't stuck for choice for other shades to choose from. I wanted a brown shade and I spent a good few minutes deciding between the different brown shades available. Its good going to a Clinique counter as you can test them on your hand, giving you a much better idea what each shade will actually look like.

          Shades available:
          - Really Black
          - Black/Brown
          - Navy
          - Smoky Brown
          - Moss
          - Dark Chocolate
          - Roast Coffee
          - True Khaki
          - Grape
          - Indigo
          - Blue Grey
          - Violet

          In the end I opted for the Dark Chocolate shade, which is just as the name suggests a lovely dark chocolatey colour.

          Using this eyeliner is great. I've been using it for a while now and I'm always so pleased at just how simple, quick and easy it is to use. You don't need to push down hard on the pencil at all when using this on your eye lids, which makes a nice change from eye pencils which sometimes need quite a bit of pressure just to start working, and ends up looking a mess in the end. I can softly glide this across my eyelid, and along the bottom lid if required. The colour goes on nice and smooth, and I really love the colour of the eyeliner. If I'm going for a 'smokey' eyed look, then I love using the smudger to gently smudge the eyeliner to give this effect. It's so simple to do, making this eyeliner really live up to its Quickliner name, as you won't be spending ages taking it off and starting again! I love using this eyeliner with Clinique's good range of eye shadows, they're also really smooth and creamy, and combined together they give your eyes a long lasting look.

          At the end of the day I am always pleased to notice that the eyeliner has held well. It's still just as I applied it making my eyes look great! When it comes to removing it, it doesn't require much effort. I use my normal make-up remover or face wash and it's gone, no elbow grease required! I should point out that this eyeliner is water resistant, so you can use this with a waterproof mascara if you are worried about going out in the rain!

          I suppose the only downside to this product is the price. At £12 this eyeliner is probably one you want to keep for special occasions, or when you are in a hurry and can't afford to spend time correcting mistakes with other more fiddly eyeliners. However I only buy Clinique products when they have a special offer on, often a nice free gift with lots of free products when you buy any 2 products, and the gifts make your purchase great value. Also if you buy this in Debenhams you can collect your Beauty Club reward points!

          Overall I highly recommend this eyeliner. It won't tug on your eyelids, it's so simply to apply, and it gives excellent results which last all day. It's certainly become a favourite of mine!

            Overall a good eyeliner which makes eyes stands out

            I love clinique products and love trying out anything new they bring out, or something I havent tried before. My friend always uses this for her eyes and they always look amazing, so i thought I would try it. I bought it in navy blue as I have blue eyes and tthought it would look better than a harsh black. I love it it really makes my eyes stand out and it lasts all day so you dont need to keep reapllying. I spent eleven pounds on this eyeliner which at the time I though, what am I doing?? This is too much money on that. But it lasts for a long time like a lot of clinique products and is beautiful to apply. It cost me £11.00 but was worth all the money. It goes on really well, and twists out so there is no need to keep sharpening it, if it gets blunt. It is very soft so you dont feel youself keep drawing over th same bit to get it to work, and it gives a lovely natural look or you can apply it much more heavily for an evening look. Definately worth the money I feel.

            This is probably the only clinique product i own and dont think is any good.

            Basically it is an eye liner pencil which i have in blach and navy blue as a friend brought me them in a set with some lip liners.

            I dont know weather it is something to do with my skin type being oily or if there is a special trick to applying this pencil but no matter how hard i press there is only a very faint transfer to my eyes which wears off in about an hour.

            I expected this to be the same as the cheap eyeliners i own where they give a very dark black line without much effort but was wrong.

            I do not know how much these eye pencils cost but as all clinique products are expensive i wouldnt waste your money on it , its not as if using a different brand eye liner is going to effect your skin as it is just a couple of small lines.

              A fantastic eyeliner- give it a go!

              At last, I have found an eyeliner that actually stays on me. Previous to discovering Clinique's eyeliner, I had suffered under the many trials and tribulations that eyeliner provides; either melting into the wrinkles under my eyes or just plain disappearing. If I wore brown eyeliner, it would melt and make me look like I had a skin condition, if I wore black ,in about two hours I looked like a Panda. In short, the many eyeliners that I tested did not stay on for longer than a few hours and I would have to constantly be checking in mirrors to try and fix the eyeliner that had travelled halfway down my face. It was a pain and because I didn't want to be seen looking into a small hand mirror (and being mocked by my peers for being vain) I had to keep on going to the bathroom to use the mirrors there. I got so sick of it that I ditched eyeliner altogether.

              Then I had an idea. I would go to the House of Fraser near me and go to one of the counters and ask what the hell I was to do. I chose the Clinique counter purely because it was the one nearest to the door and I'm glad I did. Many could have been put off by the fake orange tan, bright tanned blonde hair and makeup so thick that I could scrape it off the skin with a trowel assistant but I perservered and explained my dilemma. At first, she recommended liquid eyeliner but after trying that once and getting it on everything except my eyes, I had sworn never to try it on again plus, I don't like the fact that you can't blend liquid eyeliner. Then she recommended Quickliner. I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the price (£11) but considering all my previous eyeliners had been in the £7 range and had been rubbish, I decided to grin and bear the price and try it out.

              Initially, the eyeliner proved to be incredibly confusing for a girl with no common sense. It has been designed so that a sharpener is not needed for the eyeliner to keep it sharp, instead, you are able to twist it so that it rises up and keeps itself sharp. It rises slowly so that you won't push too much of it out which is useful because the pencil won't retract so once you wind it up, it won't go back down. It also makes it easy to use as I never have to worry about having a blunt lead.

              On the other side of the pencil a brush is attached so that the eyeliner can easily be blended. Both sides of the eyeliner have lids to cover them, to prevent them getting dirty and picking up bacteria.

              I used the 'very black' coloured eyeliner but there are other colours available, however, having never tried them, I don't feel qualified to comment on those. However, the 'very black' quickliner is very easy to apply. It does not go on instantly as extreme black, and it is possible to decide how light or dark the eyeliner will be depending on how much pressure you apply so that you can easily go from one extreme (nude) to the other (goth).

              After twelve hours of wearing the eyeliner on a normal day, the eyeliner is still there. Of course, it is not as fresh as it was when it was applied in the morning, but the majority of it is still there and by the end of the day, it hasn't melted and run down my eyes so that I resemble something out of a horror movie. Essentially, my makeup still looks good by the end of the day. I've also been out in the rain wearing Quickliner and it has remained impressively on.

              This is truly the eyeliner of all eyeliners. The price is a bit expensive but it does last for a long time (being able to wind up the lead helps it not to be wasted). So, for all those people out there who are vain enough to want to wear make up but too lazy to want to constantly check up on how the make up is doing, (once a day is enough thank you very much) then this is the eyeliner for you. It is also an eyeliner that gets you many positive comments, on the first day of wearing it, five people told me how nice my eyes looked. Give it a go, you won't regret it.

                Clinique quickliner for eyes is probably one of the best eyeliners i have ever used on my eyes, and i would certainly recommend paying that little bit more so that you can gain that little bit more satisfaction when you apply it to your eyes! At £11 the clinique quickliner for eyes is rather expensive, however when you use it for the first time you will immediately realise that that £11 was worth it. A major advantage about this eyeliner is that it has been allergy tested and is 100% fragrance free. so for those of us with sensitive eyes it will not harm us at all especially because it has had an Ophthalmologist test on it. Another major adavantge is that the eyeliner is long lasting. in the past i have found myself re-applying eyeliner every couple of hours or so because it has just rubbed out my eyes, but with the Clinique quick eyeliner i find i have to apply once a day and maybe a top up half way throughout the day, but thats very rare because it is long lasting. Even though it is long lasting it does come off very easily when using make up remover which is very another advantage. The greatest thing about the actualy pencil is that it is creamy smooth and so does not hurt your eyes when applying. It is also a pencil, which you need to swivel to make it appear, however the pencil is not retractable so be careful how much you twist it. I think this is a great feature because there is no need to sharpen any pencils, and with the number of pencils i have broken through sharpening this has become a great relief for me! There are loads of different colours, going from deep deep night black to blues, browns and purples. Along with the clinique eyeliner, when looking at the cinique collection i found many other beauty products, reasonably priced which would look great with the eyeliner!! I hope this has been of some use! let me know if you would like to know anything else about the eyeliner!! P.S. the ingr

                  I discovered this product by chance when I went for a makeover at my local Clinique counter. I originally went to find some new eyeshadow, and came away with some cleanser, and this great eyeliner. I chose one in a navy blue colour, as it is not as harsh as black, and looks well on my quite pale complexion. You don't need to contort your eyelid to apply, as it is soft, and smoothly draws on. It doesn't make your eyelid crumple as you apply. It doesn't require you to buy a shapener, as it has a twist up mechanism, and there is no need to buy extra smudging brushes as the pencil has one attached. It isn't the cheapest of products and costs around £11.00. But everyone deserves a treat now and then! What a great product, I will continue to use it at least until this one runs out. Thank you for reading!
