Eyeliner Week: Clinique Quickliner For Eyes Intense

The big beauty trend this year is bright and bold eyeliner. The eyes are mostly left naked except for that intensely colored line - thick, thin, geometric, it's all in style as long as the liner is in a jewel or matte neon tone! I really enjoyed this particular trend, as you can see in my past FOTDs. It's easy to do and works well with pretty much any outfit I wear.

One eyeliner that stood out to me recently is the Clinique Quickliner For Eyes Intense (P1,100). This, I believe, is another reformulated version of a Clinique staple. I haven't tried the old one so I can't compare; I can tell you though that this one is quite good, with such a buttery smooth texture, intense color payoff, and good staying power!

The Quickliner is meant to be smudged for that undone rockstar look (it comes with a soft smudger tip), but it's sooo creamy that it can be used as a cream eyeshadow by itself. I also love to use this as a base for my 5-minute smoky eyes technique, since it sets solid after a few minutes.

This eyeliner doesn't budge for about five hours, after which I notice minor smudging. It's acceptable, and easy enough to clean with tissue. 

17 Intense Amethyst is a bright purple with fine blue shimmer. I love purples like this on my eyes, and this one is no exception! I always get complimented about my eyeliner whenever I wear this shade.

The other available shades. I wanna see Intense Peacock and Ivy in person!

What I don't like, hm. Well, the eyeliner body is very soft, which means that it's prone to melting and to getting accidentally swiped off. You have to treat this particular auto-liner with care! Store it in a cool dry place and only twist up what you need per use.

Overall, I highly recommend the Clinique Quickliner For Eyes Intense if you like that kohl-y texture without the meltdown. This can serve as an eyeshadow or eyeshadow base on top of being a good eyeliner. :) Try it out if you like your liners to be a bit more flexible, and colorful!

Have you been wearing colored eyeliner this year? Which colors did you go for?
