Hi Sophia, I just got a Stila kajal eye liner in the mail yesterday with my recent stila order and so far I just love it. It does glide on very gently and smoothly. I got the sapphire color. This may be a brand you might want to consider.....I don't know about the Clinique one, sorry.

Sophia, I'm not sure about the Clinique pencil, but MAC eye kohl in "Teddy" is a nice rich bronzey-brown. Its really easy to blend too! Chanel's "Le Crayon Yeux" in 'Teak' or 'Coffee Bean' are nice as well. The good thing about the Chanel ones, is that they have a sponge applicator on the other end of the pencil to smudge/blend the e/l--great for smoky eyes!

Thanks Trisha!!I have a powerpoint already and I don't really like it maybe Mac's Khols have better staying power!!

kajal eye liner

Kajal eye liners are formulated to mimic the ultra-soft texture of the Indian eye darkener of the same name. The luscious formula glides on perfectly, without dragging across the fragile skin of the eye area. Delivers bold, clear, true color that easily blends and beautifies.

Tips:

Use kajal eye liner for a precise, crisp line or smudged to create a smoky appearance. Works well with any eye shadow formula.

Kohls are definitely more smudgable than the eye pencils... "Coffee" is a nice brown pencil, but if you're looking to do a smoky eye with a bit more of an intense brown, I would go with "Teddy."

Thanks ikebana! Really between the Coffee eye pencil and Teddy is there a color difference?Teddy is more bronze than coffee? It has any shimmers?

I have the Clinique kohl in Blackened Teal. I wore it last night on a date and if I do say so myself it looked fantastic. Smudgeable but not creeping down into my lines or anything. I also liked the smooth texture. I really liked it, but this was the first time I used it so who knows if I'll discover something about it that I don't like.

i have both the teddy and the coffee mac pencils, and i find the best way to make the liner stay without smudging is to go over the liner with a same or similar color shadow, and my liner doesn't budge even if my eyes are watery.

If you want a very cheap eyeliner that still has a soft lead and is long-lasting, try Jordanna! You can get them at Walgreens for less than $2 a pencil and they work great! As long as I put a layer of loose face powder under my eye mu, these pencils do not smudge at all during the day! For brown shades, I've tried their Easyliner (automatic pencil) in Lavish Brown, a dark brown with strong cool undertones; Brown Suede (my current favorite), a warm medium brown; and Creamy Cocoa, a little lighter than Brown Suede and the only one I've tried with a little harder lead. They have several other shades of brown I haven't tried though. They also have some kohl eyeliners which I haven't tried, but I've only heard good things about Jordanna eyeliners


I also used to really like Maybelline's Expert Eyes (their Dark Chocolate was a very dark brown which I loved) but they seem to be discontinued, I can't find them anymore

Lancome's eyeliner pencil in Black Coffee is great. It used to be my favorite. Right now I love VS's Dark Chocolate. (Not an option for the OP, I guess.) I also love the Clinique ones. Any of the 3 would work great, I think.

I know someone who works for Clinique, and though she says the Kohl Shapers are pigmented and easy to apply, she told me they don't last all that long.
I was bummed because Blackened Teal sounds so pretty...
