Clarins Eye pencil (waterproof vs regular)

After a hard day of using my brain at work for no less then 10 hours I need my sedative to keep me balanced. Yes, you guessed, my diazepam is actually makeup. Sometimes a damn expensive one I must admit! 馃槈

I have green eyes and love brown eye pencils,聽 especially when I’m in a rush! My fav so far are Clarins, as they are of decent quality but rather affordable. I couldn’t decide between regular or waterproof version so I got them both.

Although their number is the same – 02, the waterproof version is as the name says – more bronze than proper brown. When compared, waterproof version does stay on longer and smudges less as expected, but when it comes to colour I prefer the regular version.聽 Some pros and cons:

pros:

  • nice true brown colour (esp for green eyes)
  • good staying power (12 hours or so)
  • glides on easily
  • felt tip for smudging
  • price 馃槈

cons:

  • smudges – especially in hot weather!
  • can break if not stored in refrigerator before sharpening

  • great staying power
  • price
  • doesn’t smudge
  • felt tip for smudging

cons:

  • doesn’t glide on easily – feels sort of rough on the lids!
  • can break if not stored in refrigerator before sharpening
  • bronze colour which might not suit everyone

Would I repurchase? Perhaps, especially if they make a hybrid of the two – the colour of the regular one with staying power of the waterproof version!
