I am guilty of a whole lot of impulse purchases when it comes to makeup. And part of those purchases are triggered by fellow bloggers (bless your perfectly contoured soul TamTamBeauty) This Clarins Limited Edition Stylo 4 Couleurs belongs to the same set of purchases. And one that I am really happy with.
Clarins Limited Edition Stylo 4 Couleurs has a nostalgic make and design, which propelled me to buy it in the first place. It reminded me of the 4-coloured pen I used to scribble around with at 12. It had black, blue, red, and green pens, and was one of my most cherished possessions.
Clarins dug up the same concept, and replaced ink pens with 3 eyeliners (black, brown and green) and a lip liner (pink). You select and push down one of the four options, and the product is dispensed when you twist it clock wise. It is firm, much like an eye/lip pencil, so outlining is easy but filling in (e.g. lips) can require some effort.
The colours last a long time, and are mostly smudge proof. I bought it from Clarins’ website and used Tara’s discount to save 5€ from its retail price of 34.55€. Recently, I have been using this pen and TamTam’s Beauty palette as my on-the-go essentials.
Am I happy that I bought it? YES! Should you buy it? Double yes. Sometimes, it is good to indulge in limited edition pieces, for old time’s sake.
