Now you know I’m all about the eye makeup. So when I heard about Clinique’s new (or actually, not quite so new now) What’s Your Line? range, I had to find out what all the fuss was about.
What’s Your Line? is a new collection of eye products, including the fantastic new Skinny Stick – a super slimline eyeliner pencil, a Pretty Easy Eyeliner pen, and a Chubby Lash Mascara.
Ok, so let’s take a look at the Chubby Lash Fattening Mascara £17.50.
This is a super chunkily packaged mascara – to fit with the ever popular ‘Chubby’ theme which we all know and love Clinique for. The brush on this mascara is rather curious though… it’s pretty large, yet has very short, densely packed bustles. My instant thought was I’m either going to love it or I’m going to hate it. I have short and fine eyelashes, so choosing a mascara that works well for me can often be problematic. Well I can happily say that I love this mascara! Though the wand is large, the short bristles mean I can easily coat my lashes with pretty much one application. I like to go as bold as I can when it comes to lashes though, so I find two coats works well. The formula is fantastic, as well as being really well pigmented. This definitely does the job for me!
Next is the Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen £19.00.
This super fine eyeliner pen is perfect for creating precise, clean lines with one steady sweep. As far as liquid eyeliners go, I definitely prefer pens to brushes, as I find them a lot easier and quicker to work with. The ‘Pretty Easy’ eyeliner pen really does do what it says on the tin. The tapered nib has a super fine yet flexible point which works amazingly well when creating a beautiful cat-eye flick. The formula is also 24-hour smudge and budge-resistant. This is definitely one of the best eyeliner pens I’ve tried so far.
Next is the Clinique Skinny Stick in Silver Black, £15.00.
Now I’m liking the look of this! This is easily one of the thinnest eyeliner pencils I’ve ever seen, in a twist up style so you don’t need to worry about breakage. If, like me, you can’t live without eyeliner, but you’d like a more natural look, the Skinny Stick is perfect for creating the finest line along the lash line, for a natural yet pretty no-makeup look. I have super fine and pretty sparse eyelashes, so this is wonderful for when I want a lighter look for day time. The colour Silver Black isn’t the darkest shade of black – which could either be a good or a bad thing depending how you look at it. But it is a really wearable shade, with tiny silver sparkles. There are also eleven more shades in the range, including a deeper black without any sparkle, so there should be a colour there to suit everyone.
And lastly, I also have the Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse £16.00.
Out of all of my facial features, I find my brows to be the most problematic when it comes to applying makeup. They always look wonky, or uneven or just not right in some way. This Just Browsing Brush On Styling Mousse – though the wrong colour for me – is fantastic for a brow novice like me. It tints, tames any stray hairs and fills in any sparse areas with a quick swipe of the brush. The mousse also has a 24 hour long wearing formula that’s resistant to smudging, sweating and humidity. So you don’t need to worry about your brows wearing off throughout the day!
Overall I’m really impressed with this collection of eye products. I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these?
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
