Best Bet: Quickliner for Eyes Intense


Eyeliner is a fickle thing — most of us find a brand that works and stick with it. Clinique’s new Quickliner for Eyes Intense is a worthy challenger to high-end liners. The Intense sticks are more richly pigmented than the original Quickliner, with a color-saturated effect akin to a liquid liner. Though the consistency is creamy, the water-resistant formula doesn’t smear like liquid or melt away like dry pencils. The texture enables even, fine lines with a swipe, but the stick also comes with a smudger tip for creating a smoky eye.
