Just awful! Not only does it fade, but it also leaves me looking like a mess! What a waste of 30 dollars CDN. Going back to the MUFE line.
This is for the bronze version but it's awesomeness is so huge, I will be buying the other colours!
If you've read my other reviews, you will have followed the maelstrom of my eye makeup experience since my Lasik surgery. Bye bye mascara, hello eyeliner. And this is the best of the bunch.
Originally, I started out playing with Joe Fresh eyeliners; see review. Why buy expensive until you know how to use something, right?
After 8 months, I can line my eyes without looking like a 4 year old so I decided to splurge and go play in the big leagues; this has been my favourite product thus far.
The Clarins eyeliner is quite long, about 30% longer than Joe Fresh. It has a nice gold cap on both ends and my beloved smudger on one end. I am one of those people who use the smudger; this is a deal breaker for me. Without it, I have to pack a stiff bristled brush to soften the line. So by having this right on the eyeliner, I save space in my bag. Points there.
Yes, this is pricey. Almost $30 Cdn; compared to the $3 Joe Fresh. But to me it is worth 10X the price. Aside from the nice packaging, the smudger and the longer length, it is the consistency of the product that has sold me.
It is creamy; it just glides onto my eyes. No pulling, tugging; it feels good! It doesn't squish or break, it sharpens up nicely, and has no odour.
The bronze colour is fantastic! Deep, yet a little shimmery. It dresses up my eyes, is a little more fun than basic brown, but isn't over the top. This makes my pale green eyes POP!
When I remove this at the end of the day, 10-12 hours later, there is some fading but it hasn't moved. For an evening out, I would probably retouch, but this easily gets me through my day.
I am now in the sisterhood of sensitive eyes. I watch my eye creams, and despair of ever again wearing mascara. But this eyeliner almost makes up for it. Looks good, feels luxe, no redness later. Love it!
Love this pencil. I had it in black and it has such a nice deep, rich colour. Its soft and creamy too so no tugging while putting it on. It doesn't smudge, lasts really long (couple of times I went to sleep without removing my liner - that was the only makeup I was wearing- it still looked lovely the next day. It had just faded and smudged a little bit!) Its waterproof too. What more can one want. It is quite expensive but the pencil lasts so long and is of such good quality that it is worth the amount. After I used up mine I decided to try Estee's double wear eye pencil which is equally good. I'll be getting more colours in this soon.
I have this in black and it never stays in place. I dont have watery eyes at all but this is my one racoon city product. And I am absolutely positive it is the waterproof!
I love this eyeliner, it is a pretty shimmery blue shade and it brings out the green in my eyes, i would definately buy this eyeliner again.
My eyelids are very oily so it won t stay long. I m still searching the best one.
So, I ran a little experiment with the different waterproof eyeliner pencils in my work place. I drew a line of each brand (Benefit, Smashbox, Clarins, Lancome) in black on my hand and sprayed my hand with some thermal water. I first dabbed the water off, to see if any of the lines were affected, then rubbed. I treated this experiment like a skeptic, assuming waterproof meant nothing and was just a gimmick (haha).
I found that the Clarins eyeliner stayed put the most, while the others faded from black to grey, if not faded almost completely. It stayed the darkest as well. I will admit, all of them lost their black-ness.
So at the end of the day, I decided to buy this eyeliner even though I didn't like the price tag on it (it's quite pricey), but it has not failed me once. It is the best water proof and it's my HG waterproof eyeliner. :) I hope my experiment helps you guys as well :D
I have very sensitive eyes and this does not turn my eyes red. I love this pencil! It stays on and on and on. It doesn't smudge or shrink your eyelid. Nice rich black.The water line stays pretty well but needs a touch up after 4 hours or so. My only complaint is sharpening. I seem to waste alot of pencil because of breakage during sharpening and have tried several different types of sharpeners, My other favorites are YSL and I use to love Shiseido's pencil and was heart broken when they were discontinued.
Clarins...I've used my one little black waterproof eyeliner pencil so it seems, for about a year. really, I shouldn't use any other. My weird right eye, (It is a lazy eye, and the lid droops) tends to transfer black eyeliner onto the upper lid with any other brand (except a couple of MAC pencils). This is the only non transferring black I've ever had luck with.
It goes on well on my lower lid (I wear my lower lid eyeliner next to eye to frame my eyes), and this stays put. Infact, if I keep it sharp, it applies like new every time. It is black black, it lasts forever, and I love it. Worth every penny.
C4 mac-green eyes.This is amazing!!I bought it few hours ago-shade 04-Turquise.I always have black on my warterline but last week the make up artist of clarins had a bronze strong eye and this unique colour on her waterline-she was amazing.
I could not sleep since then.Today i got it-makes my green eyes pop,it is not the smoothier but i do not have a problem,soft enough for me.Makes the shape of my eyes cat like.
This is my first make up buy from Clarins but i want to go and get a second one as a back up!I want to try the blushes also.
Has a sponge also for blending,but i will not use it since i got this pencil for my waterline-i would prefer a sharpener like chanel~s.
