Dior Crayon Eyeliner Review

“I like big double butts and i cannot lie”.

What i mean is ..i like eye liner pencils with two butts- you know the kinds with the smudger at one butt, and the pencil at the other- exactly like the Dior Crayon Eyeliner here and the same as my beloved Clinique Quickliner for eyes. Me thinks the smudger is just so useful for a quick smudgey smokey  look , and once when i forgot my eyeshadow brushes i even used the smudger to place eyeshadow in my inner corner. Yes, that is one mean little multitasking sponge butt!

The Dior Crayon Eyeliner in Trinidad Black is one of those snooty little eyepencils that just sits inside your makeup pouch, well aware of the priceless “CD” markings all over it, and refuses to make friends with my other lesser known eye pencils. It is an intensely rich black, and uber creamy – all the qualities an eyeliner pencil or a cup of coffee should have. The Crayon eyeliners actually underwent a formula change a couple of years back and have improved by miles from their slightly waxy texture to a slick new formula which glides on easily, is super pigmented , creamy and lasts the entire day.

When Ms Dior graces my upper lash line, it lasts the whole day without fading and smudging. Its waterproof so cry buckets if you want and it will stay stay prettily on top of your eyes. If i want i can just smudge a bit of it from the smudger on application and then the it  will not throw any tantrums throughout the day. However the Dior Crayon Eyeliner is  not that long lasting on the waterline unfortunately, and the dampness of the waterline makes sure it fades away throughout the day. Honey at the price you came at, that is not cool!

One thing  fantabulous about the  Dior Crayon Eyeliner is its tightlining properties  (for those not well versed with complicated beauty blog terminology, that means lining the inner line of your upper eyelid to make it look like you have thicker lashes). It just clings on to the tightline and stays put and delivers that rich color that is expected of it.

Dior Crayon Eyeliner in Trinidad Black Swatch

Overall Verdict : A-

Product:4/5, Pigmentation:5/5, Texture:4.5/5, Longevity:3.5/5, Value & Packaging:3/5

Price: Approx 2200/-  i think

Will I Repurchase: Not at this price.

Recommendation: The Dior Crayon Eyeliner in Trinidad Black is a rich and creamy black eyeliner that works great on the upper eyelid and as a tightliner. It delivers intense color,is a breeze to apply and lasts the entire day except when worn on the waterline- where it fades surprisingly quickly. Its really about whether you want to spend this  much money on a pencil that is easily  dupe-able.

Pretty! Can never get enough of black eye pencils… only wish they made these double -ended liners with a brush tip as against sponge ones… the sponge tip always hurts my eye when smudging :(
