This is my first Chanel cosmetics purchase. I'm a fan of their fragrance, but the novelty of a nude eyeliner swayed me to put down the big bucks for Clair.
The eyeliner is ridiculously expensive for an eyeliner. I'm used to spending less than ten dollars for an eyeliner so this purchase took some convincing. Was a nude eyeliner really necessary when I could use my Mac white eyeliner? So put some white eyeliner one and agreed that it wasn't natural looking and that it was kind of a pain in the ass to get it from not looking garish. So on a day when I needed some retail therapy I bought this eyeliner.
It came in the mail, from Chanel.com, with two free samples of foundation and mascara. I will review those later. It made me feel better about the purchase when I saw the cute Chanel bag that they put the box in. Everything was very nice and fun to open, which makes me see where some of the expense was going to.
The product itself was of nice quality. The pencil was soft and didn't pull on my delicate inner eye area. I had my existing makeup was on so I just added this eyeliner to the look. I was very pleased with it and even though it was a luxury (ie - not necessary) purchase I feel like I am going to enjoy having it. So far I haven't had any irritation from the pencil, which is common with anything I put on my inner rims. It hasn't affected my contacts either. So those are all pluses.
The eyeliner comes with a nice pencil sharpener. I really appreciate that since my own pencil sharpener is not so good and will be thrown away now.
So far, my only thought, is that I wish they would make this a mechanical pencil vs. a pencil you have to sharpen, but maybe that wouldn't work with the softness of the pencil.
If I find myself using this product a lot. I will surely buy again. :)

Amazing multitask product that was probably formulated just for the waterline but does a remarkable job (for fair skinned ladies) of covering up red spots AND highlighting shadows. I was using YSL Touche Eclat for shadows but this is better and lasts all day. I normally don't think of Chanel for useful hardworking products rather glam-out options but this is a winner. Much too expensive though.

so smooth and better than white liner if you prefer natural wide awaken eyes. so expensive though. will recommend to everyone especially to those tan skin as white liner looks pretty fake compare to nude liner like this one.

I took off a lippie for the price, which was US $30. Otherwise, this pencil kohl is perfect for brightening up the eyes naturally. I will never buy another white pencil-- white is too bright and unnatural looking on the waterline. It's pretty neutral, and imparts a nice sheen and wears well for a pencil. To me it's worth the money. Pencils last a long time and this is a hard-to-find color in any cosmetics line.

I had a white pencil and a yellow pencil from Lancome from years ago, but they were soooo hard and poked my eye! I tried this the other day and have worn it every day since. I love how it brightens my eye in a soft way, blends, looks natural but makes my eyes look bigger without a noticeable white line. It is soft enough, buildable, and it stays on. I never have to retouch it except if I go out at night I like to freshen a bit. Otherwise, I love it and will repurchase. BTW, I wear with a smudged liner underneath the lash line - looks so nice like that!

I have finally found my most beloved waterline brightener - its a perfect "nude" color for me. It's creamy, but not overly and it applies like a dream and wears on my waterline all day. It give instant brightness, I look awake at 6:30am - nigh impossible, I know.
Really great product and while it was expensive, I expect this to last a very long time since I often line my waterline in black or brown. It comes with a very nice sharpener, as well. Very nice product - good job, Chanel.

Le Crayon Khol is a semi-soft powdery pencil suitable for the waterline. Comes as a pencil with a Chanel pencil sharpener in the retail box. Texture wise it is soft, easy to glide onto both upper and lower eye lids. Staying power is good for the upper lids but if you tend to have watery eyes, it may not be as long lasting on the lower waterline. Intense as the name depicts, the colour can be varied from lighter smudge of colour to full on intensity by layering drawing over the line several times.
69 Clair is a flesh tone pencil ideal for opening up the eyes, enhancing a wide eye look. It does not look as stark as white penil Blanc 65. Chanel got this spot on! Thank you for listening to our feedback for a softer nude pencil!

I have always understood the concept of using a light colour to help brighten and widen my eyes, but everything on the market just looked to white and whenever I saw people with white on their eye line I just thought "hmmm that looks just strange"... but with this one Chanel have got the colour spot on! Great for use any time day or night! The only negative is that the Kohl pencil itself is not very creamy and soft so you have to go over a few times to get the colour right (this can also be a saving grace as it means you can brighten the area gradually by layering) but it does mean that it is not very soft and gentle on what is a very sensitive and delicate eye area. Having said that though, I would definitely repurchase this product!

it looks more natural compared to macs chromographic pencil. however mac's texture is better because its softer but i find it too much to wear during the day. so chanel during the day and mac at night. overall it's a great product, much better than wearing a white eyeliner.

This kohl has become hg for me. This is a flesh colored pencil for lining your waterline and in effect to open your eyes up, appear more awake, etc. Previously I was using Cargo's reverse lip liner for this purpose, it's very natural shade wise too but is not very soft to work with. Then I moved onto Mac's chromagraphic pencil which has a great texture but is too peachy and unnatural on my yellow toned skin. Chanel's is the best of both worlds. I find it to be soft and workable for the waterline and the color is incredibly natural! It is more $ than Cargo and Mac, it is Chanel so that's a given. It's worth every penny! For reference I am 1.5/shell in Chanel t.i.

I have always read that white eyeliner on the waterline of your lower lashes brightens up the eye. I got a white eyeliner years ago and felt that the look was NOT for me. it was too weird looking as the contrast was too blatant.
fast forward to the present! i was reading about this eyeliner in a fashion magazine and thought, what a good idea! i went to the chanel counter and bought it right away, and i have never looked back! i love how this brightens my eye without making it look obvious (like the way a white eyeliner would stand out). it definitely freshens up my look! i also adore that chanel supplies a sharpener with their eyeliners.
the only reason i took 1 lippie off is because i felt that the pencil could be a bit softer, more kohl-like. when i finish this, i will repurchase if its still available. if not, i will look for a softer (literally) alternative.
go buy this ladies!

After seeing this e/l on display, I was intrigued by it. The MA at the Chanel counter said it was for the water line and asked if I wanted to try it out. I have never worn liner on the water line before because of my sensitive eyes. I was so glad I did! The liner brightened by tired looking eyes and freshened my entire look (I had just spent 8 hours in front of a computer). The best thing is that the product did not make my eyes water, itch, burn or turn red...and I have very sensitive eyes.
It's amazing how Chanel perfected this product! It's a definite staple in my make up collection. I will always buy this liner as long as Chanel makes it.

Perfection!!! This liner really brightens the eye without looking unnatural. I have also tried Chanel's Blanc eyeliner which is too white and Stila's Topaz which looks odd on me. The lasting power is better than I expected, I don't expect anything to last all day on my waterline.

From the Fall '10 line. The most amazing color, nude, with no hint of shimmer, caking or pullings Goes on baby soft and brightens the eye area. It can be used as a nude lippieliner. Just a lovely Kohl pencil and I am very surprised Chanel got this nude color perfect. Like no other. I had no intention on purchasing this but when applied I just could not resist.
