Thanks a million MUA'ers for all the positive reviews that led me to try/buy this!!! Pencils are such a simple, unexciting item and yet it's hard to find the right consistency and colour - this one really excels at both. I couldn't be happier to have discovered it. This is a soft, really wearable brown with a subtle shimmer - although I don't really see the shimmer once it's on. It applies smooth as silk but then somehow sets and doesn't budge, even though I smudge it with a brush to soften the line. I've been through eyeliner pencils from so many brands, many twice the price of this one and hands down this is my absolute favorite! *Update - after going through 2 of these I'm downgrading it 1 lippie - still love the colour and staying power but I just can't get the fine line I prefer, even with constant sharpening [I notice I use this pencil up quicker than most for that reason.]
This is my HG pencil eye liner. The texture is smooth and soft yet this eyeliner doesn't smudge at all. I use this to line the inner rims and it works well every time. I also have this in Egyptian but this is the best.
My favorite go-to brown liner! The Creamshapers are some of my favorite Clinique products - excellent quality, wear, ease of application. I also own the Brown Sugar pencil, great for a more natural/less impact look & great with blue eyes. Chocolate Lustre is a beautiful rich brown with a touch of shimmer, not at all flat or harsh (like the Dark Chocolate Quickliner was on me). My e/s stash is mostly warm neutrals (bronze, brown, gold, taupe, warm pink) & this liner goes so well with all of it. Looks great on its own too when I'm in a hurry. It provides the perfect dark definition without being too strong or overwhleming. The pencil applies smoothly without tugging & lasts well throughout the day. Definite HG material & I will absolutely repurchase.
Finally, a brown eyeliner that doesn't scream "blah." I've tried tons of browns - cool, warm, taupe, whatever - and never found one that I liked. I really like the quality of my Egyptian Cream Shaper (no tugging, easy to blend, long lasting), so I bought this based on postive MUA reviews. This too is a winner! Love the gold flecks to give it a bit of pizzazz. I've been wearing this with my new Desert Sun Colour Surge eyeshadow and love the look. Although it kills me to pay $17.50 CAD for a mere eyeliner, I will repurchase this.
This is my HG eyeliner. I have dark brown eyes and have a hefty supply of black, black-brown, and brown liners in my stash. IMO they are rather boring. I bought this eyeliner after reading the reviews on MUA. Thank you! It is a beautiful shade with just a little extra shimmer for oomph. I love it much more that MAC's Teddy shade. Yet, what makes this liner special is its ease of application. It's perfect if you're in a hurry. Plus, it's creamy enough to glide on without tugging and allows smudging for a wonderful, natural smoldering look. Then, it dries and wears nicely all day. I also bought this in Egyptian, but like Chocolate Lustre better. My coloring is NC-27-30, BB 2.5 warm sand, Clinique Ivory (n), and Stila "e".
I've always hated eyeliners because I'm not very handy with those things but suddenly ... Clinique changed my mind ;p
I bought the icy-white Cream shaper first and it was very easy to apply. I have a few other colors now and maybe this Cream shaper is just my HG ;-)
This is a wonderful eye pencil in a rich dark brown shade with tiny metallic flecks of bronze. It manages to combine the qualities of kohl (long-wearing) with the ease of application that gel liners have. It doesn't tug or drag at the lid (a problem I have had with many pencil formulations in the past), the colour is intense and very flattering with my dark brown eyes and fair complexion, and it lasts without creasing or smudging. Also--big plus for me--it doesn't irritate my very sensitive eyes. Best eyeliner I have used. I also own this in the Starry Plum shade.
This is a creamy,smooth pencil with a hint of shimmer.Glides on super easy and intense.long wearing and water resistant formula.I have this in Black Diamond,Chocolate Lustre and Egyptian and are perfect all of them.Chocolate Lustre is a rich chocolate brown colour perfect for beige,brown,taupe eye shadows.All Cream Shaper pencils last for ever in my eyes without feeling dry but its very easy to remove them too.The best thing about those eye liners by clinique Its the so soft,reach intense colour formula that looks like a very soft kohl pencil but lasts long.Maybe the best liners in the market.Also I use this as a regular eye liner to my lash line and in my waterline too with no problems
I had given up pencil liners when I discovered gel liners, but this color was just to tempting that I had to try it. I'm always looking for browns, epecially shimmery browns, and after seeing it on my roommate, I caved. This is a lovely medium shimmery brown with a bit of bronzey/copper sparkle. After trying it, Clinique Cream Shapers have quickly become some of my favorite liners. A nice quick alternative to gel liners, and much easier for on the go. I love the depth that this color has, and it is very long-wearing. I will definitely repurchase!
Since discovering MAC Fluidlines a year ago, I'd all but given up on pencil eyeliners. Recently, though, I was looking for something to line my eyes with to complete a brown smokey eye look, and I rediscovered my Chocolate Lustre eyeliner. Not sure why I hadn't used it in a year, but I'm so glad that I've rediscovered it.
The color is very chocolately, just as the name suggests. It's a dark warmish brown that would work with just about any neutral. The color makes my blue eyes look absolutely AMAZING---they stand out and the color is intensified by the contrast.
The consistency is good too--this lasts all day without budging and does go on pretty smoothly for the most part. I've found that it doesn't smudge easily, which for some is probably a good thing, but I like to smudge my eyeliners to give a softer look, hence the 4/5 rating.
This is worthy of a repurchase, especially during a Clinique bonus. I'd encourage any blue-eyed gal to check this shade out!
