Most Helpful Positive Review Foolproof
This eyeliner is foolproof! It's easy to apply and doesn't require any sort of primer to stay on. I'm kind of amazed by the fact that it applies gently (no tugging) and allows you to smudge and smear it like a cream, yet stays in place after it has set. I also like that I don't have to bother with sharpening it.
I used a similar twist-up eyeliner from Covergirl that I liked too, except it wouldn't last hardly at all without smudging all over and eventually disappearing. This Clinique eyeliner has the pros of that eyeliner without the cons. I did a test on my hand where I drew a line of both eyeliners and then tried to wipe them off (1) soon after application, and (2) several minutes after application. They both wiped off equally easily soon after application, but the Clinique one was much harder to rub off once it had been let to set for several minutes--which attests to the fact that it lets you fix oopsies and smudge it around at first, but then stays in place after setting.
I bought the color smoky brown. It's got a subtle mauve hue to it, which makes it a little more special than your typical grey or brown colors. Goes well with green eyes.

Not what I expected
Makeup Shopper from Issaquah, WA
I'm planning on returning the product. It didn't work any better that the cheaper products.
Good replacement for Stila eyeliner!

The quick eyeliner makes putting on eye makeup quick and easy. Love the colors. Easy to remove at end of day.
I would purchase again
Glamgal from WI
I purchased slate which, on me, seems to be between a blue and a greyish color. Nice liner that glides on easily.
Love it for under my eyes!
Julie from Chicago IL
I use this on the bottom lash line and it's great!
Good pigment but swivel function is hit or miss
Devy from Long Beach, CA
From the moment I got this, I had issues with the swivel tip. It barely moves and I have to crank it multiple times. I like that I don't have to sharpen it but Clinique should make this easier. I took it back and exchanged it for another and the same situation again.
i would not buy this again

Not for me...
Netter from North Dakota
Bought this on line. However, realized I like the Intense Clinque liner better. I think their liners are great but this just wasn't the right color for me.
I would buy again!

Ala from San Bernardino,ca
It doesn't stay fade very fast spicily from the inside line of the eye not really black
It's pretty nice
Liz C from Black Diamond, WA
Not as creamy and easy to apply as some other eyeliners but it's not too bad. I will use it but won't purchase again.
Yes I will buy again
Mar from Cleveland
It goes on very soft.. and lasts all day!
Catania from Wethersfield, CT
I was told it was the best eyeliner. It didn't glide on whatsoever. I had to push down to even get a line out. It was the dark black, came out very lite. Horrible product. Same thing happened to a friend of mine as well. Very inconvenient to have to go back and return. Surprising since Clinique has a lot of great products.

Softer look than liquid eyeliner, slate color less harsh than traditional black, easier to correct if you aren't applying next to magnified mirror or your hand shakes. Set with like color eyeshadow and it will get you through the day.
There are Better Eyeliner Pencils Out There
Virginia Lady from Virginia, USA
This product is very nicely packaged in a swivel-up case, and has an excellent blender tip on the opposite end. However, the eyeliner product itself flakes after several hours. Also, it doesn't glide very well on my eyelid skin, either with or without eyelid primer. It skips and makes an uneven line. Ugh.
Jenna c from ny
this was a pricy disappointment!! it's nothing like the description! within 2 hours of wear the area under my eyes was all black from the liner running and smudging, it was terrible! plus the pigment is horrible! it's like coloring with a crayon on your eye trying to get the color darker. totally misleading product! I was shocked cause it had so many great reviews but then I found out many people are paid to write good reviews on products even if they never used them, so don't believe the hype!
Yes, I would buy again!
Stix from Choctaw
Use it to line upper and lower eyelids, love it!
