[Review] Chanel Eyeliner

Hey, finally been able to write a review, so here are my thoughts on the Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in 88 Noir Intense.

For the longest time, i've been on the hunt for the perfect non smudging crayon eyeliner. Preiously i used the Revlon Crayon Eyeliner but i eventually was sick of the smudging, so i knew it was time to hunt for a new one. Unfortunately, I haven't had much luck in finding a good crayon liner. The other day while i was in Chanel, one of the beauty associates mentioned this eyeliner, she told me that it's a great eyeliner that does smudge, so i trusted her word and tried it out. My whole intention of using a crayon eyeliner is to fill in my water line for a more intense/dark lash line.

Chanel claims that this eyeliner is water/humidity resistant and provides an intense and precise line. 

After several weeks of using the eyeliner i've found that, in comparison to the Revlon eyeliner, Chanel lasts much longer and is much more smudge proof. I love how intense the black colour is, as it provides me with a fuller looking lash line. But i would have to say that this isn't smudge proof, it lasts for around 3-4 hours and then starts to fade. 

PROS                                              CONS
- Deep black                                   - Expensive
- Decently long lasting                    - Smudges fairly quickly
It is highly unlikely that i would repurchase this again, due to the price and performance of the product, to be honest because of the brand, it gives me high expectations. Its disappointing to find that a $50 eyeliner is fairly similar in quality to a $10 one in the drugstore. I am aware that sometimes drugstore makeup is the same as high end makeup (quality wise) but i occasionally find that some high end brand makeup reflects its price. 

If you know of any good crayon eyeliners that don't smudge easily please do comment below and let me know. 

Thanks for reading! Feel free to comment below ~


  1. This sounds like a great eyeliner but it is hefty on the price tag! I dont know any crayon eyeliners that dont smudge but I do know Illamasqua Precision Ink Liquid Eyeliner is bang on for precise lines that dont move an inch :) x

  3. Sorry to read it didn't work well for you. I have never actually tried them, but it seems the 24/7 eye pencils from Urban Decay are very good. As a cheaper alternative, I personally like Rimmel Scandeleye kohl pencil (the waterproof version).
