Écriture de Chanel Stylo Eyeliner - review

Chanel's latest liquid eyeliner (pen format).  My new BFF and E and E...

This stuff is really lovely.  Sorry, becuz cheap it ain't.  €33.50 will net you one of these beauties, which in my very humble opinion, is slightly Taking The P*** for an eyeliner.  That said, I took advantage of a bunch of BT points and snapped it up for a fraction of that, and well, I wanted to try it... in the interest of reporting back to you guys, of course.  Ahem...


So why is this stuff so great?

This
is

why

This took me seconds... mere seconds.  Yeah yeah, ignore the lack of concealer and bad brows...

(and with slightly better brows and some mascara...)

Swipedy-swipe, done.  No going over and back and over and back to get it nice and opaque.

This is also why:

L -> R: 2 x a la Carte Intense Liner, 2 x Chanel Ecriture liner, 3 x l'Oreal Perfect Slim liner
(Chanel - the 2 in the middle.  Lovely and black)

Super blackedy-black.  Really pigmented, really opaque.

This is also why:


Fantastic nib - great control of the liquid, no skipping, nice flow, great movement, just the right amount of flexible-but-firm.

The finish is every so slightly glossy.  It lasts and lasts and lasts.  They are very much a liquid liner in pen delivery format though, so they remain wet for a minute or so - so beware on application to avoid your eyeliner getting tattoo'd on your crease (keep looking down until they're dry).  Once they've dried, they don't budge.

Read more about Chanel's Collection Etats Poetiques here or even here if you are interested.  Price aside, this is really brilliant and has now made all my other family of pen liners completely redundant :-)
