Skin Tone : Medium Deep, NC 42-44.
Hello s*xy ladies,
Today, I am back with another eyeliner review. 😛 And this is not the last one. I have a few more coming up, but for today, sit back, relax and enjoy another awesome product that I have for you all 🙂
Creamy-smooth eyeliner pencil with a hint of shimmer. Shapes and defines with intense, stay-put colour. Non-smudging, water- and transfer-resistant. Easy to sharpen, too. Ophthalmologist tested.
Shade: Chocolate Lustre. Chocolate brown with bronzed pearl.
USD 16.5 for .04 oz/ 1.2 g (excluding any taxes and shipping).
My Experience with Clinique Chocolate Lustre Cream Shaper For Eyes:
Packaging: Clinique Cream Shaper For Eyes comes in a sharpen-able pencil form which comes packed in a cardboard box which has a typical Clinique floral pattern printed on it. The pencil is color coded, is chocolate-y brown in color with a silver cap and silver bottom.
The pencil looks classy and the cap shuts too tightly and it will not come off in your handbag. I have carried it along with me a couple of times and the cap stayed put on the pencil.
Shade/Pigmentation: This shade is really pretty. It is a truly chocolate-y brown with hints of shimmer in it. At times, it looks more bronze than brown, maybe due to the shimmer particles. The shimmer is very fine and you do not actually feel it during application. It is not gritty or chunky and goes over smoothly and easily. It just gives a nice sheen to the shade. The pigmentation is good enough and one layer would give soft brown color to the lash line. I don’t have to press the pencil too hard to get the color. However, one can easily build the color. It gives you a few minutes to smudge the liner before it sets for good.
Though the shade is pretty, it doesn’t show up well on my medium deep skin tone. It would look beautiful on girls with light to medium skin tones, but is not the shade to pick for deeper complexions. Due to this, I do not use it on my upper lash line, but I just love how it looks on my lower lash line. It gives me beautiful smoky lower lash line without any extra efforts. I have been using it non-stop since I got it. 😉 So much so that I always tend to ignore the other shade that I bought along with it. 😛
Staying Power: The staying power is awesome too. It stays well, on both upper and lower lash line and does not smudge. Also, the shimmer particles do not travel anywhere and stick to the product. I have worn it for around 9 hours and apart from little fading, it wore well. I have very sensitive eyes and the product did not cause any irritation. I have dry eyes but I feel that this product will hold the ground even for the beauties with watery eyes.
The product sharpens well and I did not notice the tip breaking off while sharpening, but yes, a little product wastage is there for sure which is the case with all the sharpen-able pencils. The product can be easily removed with any good eye makeup remover. However, no amount of soap/cleanser and water will be able to take it off.

Cons of Clinique Chocolate Lustre Cream Shaper For Eyes:
- Won’t work for girls with medium, deep or darker skin tones.
This is no doubt a 5/5 product but since it doesn’t show up on my complexion, I would give it 4/5.
