In an effort to find a new makeup routine for Fall, I decided to try Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner in Deep Brown ($14.50). Lately, I've been sticking with liquid liners that come in pen form because I can't draw a straight line. The brush it came with was immediately a red flag for me — it's only a couple inches long and the tip isn't tiny or flat. I dipped the brush in the cream, which felt too soft to give a precise line, and brushed it across my upper lashes, and then on the bottom water line. My liner was instantly amazing; I didn't even need a Q-tip soaked in eye makeup remover. Perfectly lined eyes took under two minutes, and I'm starting to wonder why I thought I needed a fine-point pen anywhere near my eyeballs in the first place!
