Clinique Starry Plum

This Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes in Starry Plum was another Advantage Points freebie, acquired at the same time as my two cream liners and my Benefit Birthday Suit cream shadow.  That was a good day.  Anyway, I'm a bit obsessed with purple liners and eyeshadows at the moment; I feel they're a good compliment to my green eyes.
This particular offering from Clinique is just a standard, creamy eye pencil.  It's very pigmented and glides onto the eye with no dragging, which is so important in an eyeliner.  Nobody wants crepey, draggy eyelids, presumably.  As the name Starry Plum suggests, this is a true plum colour with a lovely shimmer running through it, but not so much as to render this unwearable during the day. 
I absolutely love it and have been getting a lot of wear out of it.  It stays on well althoug, being a creamy product, does have the tendency to smudge after a few hours (on me about 6-8) of wear.  Not a huge problem, because, not being black, it's not hugely obvious if it's worn away or moved a bit.  It's the perfect addtion to my ever-expanding eye-based arsenal.


  1. I love eyeliner. I wear it every day, and actually own a shade quite similar to this. You've just reminded me I need to use it more!

  2. Ohh I'm actually looking for a new eyeliner may have to invest in this one! great review.
