        Best Eyeliner I've ever used

        I'm so happy that Clinique brought this eyeliner back. I have used this since I was 14 (I'm 33 now). I was devastated when I learned that they discontinued this last year. So happy it's back.

        I LOVE this eyeliner, not only can you control the thickness of the line w/ the brush, but you can make it darker or lighter too, depending on how much water you use, less water darker eyeliner. It stays on ALL DAY w/ no flaking or smudging, even though workouts.

        It took me a while to get used to the brush when I first started using it, but once you are used to it, it's no problem. Even after trying more expensive eyeliner brushes (using those brushes w/ this eyeliner), I still went back to the brush it comes with in the box.

        It does stay on in the water too, but you just can't rub your eyes or anything. AND it's very easy to take off w/ your regular facial soap.

        Also, I use this every single day and it lasts forever, at least a year w/ one application a day.

        I'm stocking up...This is my eyeliner for life. Just get used to the brush and how much water to use, which can be frustrating at first, but just keep playing with it and I guarantee you will love it.

        Thank you Clinique soooo much for bringing this back.

        I love the control of using a cake eyeliner. With some initial practice, you can get a custom line, as thin or thick and dramatic as you like. The brand I used to use is no longer available, so I was excited to find one at Clinique. I was disappointed with the wearability of this product. I have hooded lids and found that it would wear off well before lunch time.

        The very best eyeliner anywhere!

        Comments about Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner:

        I have been lining my eyes since junior high school. I have tried so many different eye lines that I can't even count how many. I started using Clinique many years ago and came across this eyeliner and boom! It was perfect! I used the brown and the black, I used to go back and forth but finally, now I just use the black eyeliner. I always make sure I have a new one waiting, just in case. I'm hoping they never take this one away or if they do, just give me ample notice so I can buy them up! I highly recommend this product. It goes on smoothly and the brush is perfect. It last all day and more.

        Comments about Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner:

        I have been using this liner for a long time, Clinique took it away for a while, looked around for a replacement, nothing came close to this liner, you have control over how dark or light you want it by how wet you have your brush, the wetter the brush the wetter the liner and lighter. It takes sometime getting used to finding the right techniques, If you find it not staying trying adding a little face powder to your eyelid, sometimes you eye lid can be oily, I find this works especially in the summer time. I have had many compliments and ask me if my eyeliner is permanent, my answer, a lot of practice!! So, ladies give it some time, practice will make you like it!

        Comments about Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner:

        I purchased this eyeliner in April. I have used it a few times but for no apparent reason.

        It 'disappears' within minutes of application.

        I LOVE this eyeliner. I've been using is for about 25 years, since college. I've tried the liquid, liquid pens, creams, and pencils but this is the only 1 I ever use now. I've become a pro at putting it on and it NEVER runs or gives me racoon eyes. I buy 2 at a time, in case it's discontinued, and each one will last me a year or 2. It lasts A REALLY long time.

        Quality has gone down

        By 

        from Indiana, USA

        Comments about Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner:

        I have used this eyeliner as my primary eyeliner for close to a decade. The color stays true and doesn�t run or smudge, hence avoiding �raccoon eyes�, a common problem for me.

        I have noticed the quality seriously decreased in the past few years. Perhaps they reformulated the product? The color is not as vivid or as dark. It is more washed out and watery, and does not stay put as well.

        Has anyone else noticed this? I am unspeakably disappointed in an apparent reformulation of my absolute favorite eyeliner!

        I would not buy again.

        Loving it after a slight learning curve.

        Comments about Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner:

        I do apply water, either I will dab a drop from my water bottle at my desk or run the brush under the faucet in a bathroom. At first the color was extremely thin, more grey than black, but I just needed to keep working the medium (the powder) with the water until I got below the pressed surface which might have a barrier coating applied for shipping? Once I used the cake a few times and gotten the hang of loading enough color and less water onto the brush, this is my favorite liner! It stays on, it doesn't run into my lower lid at the corner which does happen with my Intense Quickliner. I still keep a quickliner in my bag in case I'm stuck somewhere I can't get my liner brush wet (emergency only), but this Water-Resistant liner is now my daily go-to liner for work and weekend.

        Used for years, subtle color

        By 

        from MA

        Comments about Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner:

        I have a bit of Love /Hate for this eyeliner....the packaging can be a bit balky, and the brush has gotten cheap in the last 5 year, the original brush was very good. The application definitely needs water to apply this eyeliner. Years ago I read a tip from someone that used a small bottle of Visine in their makeup bag, simply putting a drop or two on the cake of liner I bought a nice brush at Sephora for $14.00, and cut it off to fit the case. I have been using the the Visine tip for years...no water needed. The best thing about this eyeliner is the muted brown color and the subtle look you can obtain.

        Comments about Clinique Water-Resistant Eyeliner:

        I have been using this eyeliner since I was in my twenties and I am 62 now. Along the way I have tried a couple others there is nothing like this eyeliner. It is the best on the market I would highly recommend it to anyone. During those years I have worn contacts and it never bothers them.
