While I have BIG love for the new Clinique Chubby Mascaras, it’s the opposite story for their new liners, Skinny Sticks and Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen. First of all, both my Skinny Stick testers broke as soon as I used the revolving … erm.. I’m realising I don’t know the word for that bit at the top, so I’ll stick to that.. bit at the top, and I don’t think I over-revolved either. You’d need to keep them literally just showing at the surface of the plastic tip I think, which to me, doesn’t make any sense. They don’t exactly skim across the skin either. The Clinique Skinny Liner is made to two thirds the diametre of regular pencils, which means you can go in really close to the lash line and I can see they’re good partners for the mascara, but in my practical test, they just didn’t make the grade.Clinique Liquid Liner
It’s a better story with the liquid version, although, if you’re like me and struggle with felt tip style liners, this ultra fine version is even worse! But that’s not reflective of the product, it’s reflective of my incompetence! This is the finest nib I’ve come across on any tip liner with excellent fluidity and the deepest, darkest black line ever. If you’re good with these types of liners, it’s impressively thin. The Clinique Liquid Liner is £19 and the Clinique Skinny Liners are £15, available from 31st July on www.clinique.co.uk and counters.

I always use liquid liner because the intensity of the colour is quite different from eye pencil…
Learning how to use a felt tip liner is hard and so frustrating at first, but if you keep practicing and practicing, it gets easier. It took me months of practice (I’d practice in the evenings) before I got the hang of it. I’d first draw a line with normal pencil liner, then trace over it until I felt I could do it without pencil liner. Anyway- the tip on this liquid liner looks really great!
