Chanel Brun Intense Eyeliner Makeup Summer 2012 Review

Chanel Le Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer Brun Intense (available here) - $29

Line eyes quickly and easily with an eye crayon that achieves a variety of effects, from a subtle yet precise look, to a more dramatic definition. The built-in smudge applicator perfects a smoky eye look, while a companion sharpener ensures the pencil is always ready for lining.

Chanel Brun Intense Eyeliner is part of the small summer 2012 makeup collection.  The pencil has a smudger at one end and comes with a sharpener - essential since the soft pencil does get rounded quite fast, though I haven't lost much product to sharpening.

The colour - Brun Intense - is brown with a hint of khaki to it.  There's a bit of sheen to the colour, and this is definitely not your ordinary brown eyeliner.

How I use it:  Apply a thick line close to my upper lashline, use the smudger to soften the line, then re-apply again - this time a thinner line close to the lashline.  That's how I have done in the first photo on top.

This is a colour that would work for any skin tone and a perfect replacement for the boring brown or the harsh black liner.  It has a soft texture, and the colour is something I have never seen with any other brand.  I think that's where Chanel scores.  The problem with these eyeliners, though, is that they don't really last very long, fading with time.  Use a primer and add some eyeshadow over the liner to keep it in place, but personally, I just think it's way too much work.  Besides, why would I want to spend so much money on something just to hide it under some shadow??!!  It does last about 3 hours though in a not-so-humid climate, and I use it on it's own when I know that's all the time I will be out for.  A beautiful colour, though, and if you don't mind the splurge, do give this a try.

  6. No no I don't use it every day..here you get smaller sizes too. I use about 2 times a week, and put like a THICK layer..sometimes I do 3 times a week, but that's about all I use it for. Ya Cosmetic Warrior smells :D :D :D but it works for acne. I got used to the smell after a while, but really, even my towel were stinking :| Colorbar Prunella is a superawesome good colour na..never got it, but seen swatches everywhere all over the online world :D
