I am not much of a makeup person but enjoy hoarding a lot of stuff, thanks to IMBB that the interest is finally bobbing up and I am taking out all the products I buy into employment. Like the one I am going to review today. I bought this Clinque Quick Liner and forgot it in one of my handbags. It’s recently when I was clearly out the cupboard that I found this. When in ages, I clean my closet, I feel I am the richest woman of the earth 😛 I know all of us have the same story *pigtail*. So, let me start the review of this eye pencil.
Rich formula. Automatic eyeliner pencil twists up, glides on. Smudges to a smooth blur of color with the convenient smudge tool on the opposite end. Needs no sharpening-silky formula which is always ready to line and define with ease. Stays all day long. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for all skin types.
How To Use:
- Swivel up only 1/8-inch (pencil does not retract to avoid exposing formula to air, which is drying).
- Line eyes.
- Use the smudging tool on the opposite end to gently smudge colour to desired effect.
- Allow color to set for 60 seconds to ensure transfer-resistance.
- Recap securely after using to protect the silky formula.
- Can be used alone or over eye shadow.
My Experience with Clinique Quickliner For Eyes – Slate:
Let’s start with the positives, as much as I love the packaging of this liner (no need to sharpen) and the slate color, the liner goes on smoothly and I like the color the line offers but once you apply, you can literally wipe it off clean!! Seriously, just touching, smears it off completely *waaa*
I liked the slate shade; it is great for doing smokey eyes and looks good on application. I am a matte fan, so loved the swatch when I was buying. Shimmers don’t work well on my dusky complexion. I like that it is retractable yet it doesn’t retract. If you try to pull the product back it won’t go down. Also, the liner doesn’t come out to a fine point, so you can’t get a precise line. It’s not smudge proof either *headbang* I was wondering what was I thinking when I made this investment.
I just used it for about a week or so and it’s already completely gone. I had to keep reapplying because it would not stay longer than an hour on me. I suspect that there was less than half of the product. It really is a beautiful color, but it is still a waste of money and there are better products available at a lesser price. I am sorry but I really don’t understand why this is rated or raved so highly. I love Clinique, it is my brand of choice but I am disappointed with the Quickliner.
Cons of Clinique Quickliner For Eyes – Slate:
- Not smudge proof.
- Does not retract.
- Does not stay for long.
- Not at all creamy, in fact waxy.
- Brittle and hard.
Pros of Clinique Quickliner For Eyes – Slate:
- No need to sharpen.
- Ophthalmologist tested.
- No parabens.
- Does not irritate the eyes.
This is a decent, average eye liner. Doesn’t smudge a ton, but it does fade. Not as creamy as I would like, but doesn’t tug either, not terrible but not great either.
