Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense: Intense Midnight

By 22:33 , ,

Looking for something to add that bit of drama to your eyes? Well Clinique's New Quickliner for Eyes Intense might just be the one for you. I'm well impressed with it and here's why.

The Quickliner for Eyes Intense is the ultimate tool to intensify and amplify your eyes all day or night long. Best part it is, it promises non-fading, long-wearing and provides a smooth, liquid liner like payoff that sets for 12hours. It's created to be so versatile that you can easily change your look with just one liner. I'm not making this up, I have photos below to prove it. Scroll down in a bit but read first okay. ;)

It is a double ended pencil. One end is the retractable pencil and the other one holds the smudger tip. I find this so convenient because I don't have to rummage around for a separate smudger. The texture is ultra soft creamy that it glides on smoothly without any tugging or pulling on the lid. It creates a nice even line and it takes a quick few seconds to set.

The colour I have is Intense Midnight, which is how a dark blue liner is suppose to look like. The colour is highly pigmented, appears vibrant and amplifies the eyes amazingly well. What really impressed me was its ability to withstand my very oily lids and stayed on for about 4 hours before I noticed slight smudging. This is the longest a pencil liner has lasted on my lids without an eye primer. I also tried it with a primer on and that lasted 10 hours only because I had to remove my makeup. I normally apply a primer anyway as oily lids just don't look attractive. The colour stays amazingly vibrant throughout.

3 ways to wear Quickliner for Eyes Intense, according to Clinique Global Color Artist, Jenna Menard:
1. Layer and smudge the eye liner under eye shadow to create a strong look.
2. Turn the eye liner into a bold shadow by smudging it over the lid and blending it using your finger tip. Re-apply the eye liner close to the lash line for added definition.
3. Wear the eye liner alone for a natural look by applying it close to the lash line with little to no smudging. Use a pointed or extra fine cotton bud tip to perfect the line.

Look 1
I attempted two out of three. I used the liner as I normally do, on it's own without eyeshadow with a coat of mascara for a natural look. I smudged the line to ensure it stays longer. I couldn't help but smudge the outer corner of the lower lash line as well. The colour looked beautiful. It just opened up my eyes.

Look 2
Then I tried using it as a shadow. Thing about this is you have about a few seconds to quickly smudge it, which is so easy to do, before it sets. I smudged it on the outer corner of my lids and then applied a natural shadow over it. Blend quickly and there you have it. I think it turned out pretty good. Instant sexy eyes. :)

If there's one other colour I would love to try is the Intense Ivy. From swatches online, it looks gorgeous. Plus I always had a thing for green liners!
