Clinique Helps Us Master Eyeliner

You’re going to master eyeliner this year, and Clinque’s Skinny Stick is going to help you.

Clinique Skinny StickMeet the eyeliner stick so precise that it gives you the look of liquid eyeliner without any of the hassle.  This pencil eyeliner is so thin that it never needs sharpening so it’s very easy to line ultra close to the lashes.  Stop at the end of your eyelids, or give a quick flick of your wrist to give yourself a bit of a cat eye.  It’s so easy to do.

It’s very similar to the Hourglass 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eyeliner that came out in 2014, but Clinique offers theirs in lots of colours.  Even though I wear brown mascara, the brown Slim Sable colour was a favourite of mine and I think that it’s a great starting point because it’s subtle enough that you can make mistakes with it.

If you’re interested in pricing: one Skinny Stick is $20 (Canadian) for .0002oz.  The Hourglass pencils are sold as a set of 3 for $52 and each one has .0002oz.  So… if you do the math, the Hourglass pencils actually end up being a better deal and it’s a more high end brand.  However, the Clinique pencils are just as good, and maybe you don’t want to purchase 3 pencils at the same time or dish out $52 in one shot.  Or maybe you want the Slim Sable?

    You can buy one of the Hourglass eyeliners for $19 – or 3 for $52 as you said. Surprising that Clinique is even more expensive than the Hourglass.

    I was surprised too – I don’t think they expect people to do the math, and it might even be that the Hourglass customer is not the Clinique customer so they might not even know that an Hourglass version exists.

    Kathy, yes, these are available now.
