Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Pacific Green

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Pacific Green

This little tip belongs to a Chanel eyeliner, the Stylo Yeux Waterproof 925 Pacific Green. I think it was part of a past Spring Collection, but can still be found in stores today. I am generally a fan of the Stylo Yeux Waterproof, because they really are waterproof, they are easy to put on and the color range is big.

Two swatches. The color is sooo pretty, but despite the name I consider it to be more blue than green. It’s a greenish blue with multi colored cool toned shimmer. The mine is very soft which makes it hard to get a thin line. But with a color like that, do you even want a thin line? The liner works both on skin and on the waterline. You can also use it as an eyeshadow, you just gotta be careful because it’s so soft. Don’t press too hard.

Overall, this brings the usual Stylo Yeux Waterproof quality and lasts on skin until I take it off. On the waterline it lasts about four hours, maybe a bit less. It does not smudge but the bigger shimmer particles do wander around some.

A problem I have with my Stylo Yeux Waterproof collection (I have ten) is that some of them break off at the base. Like, the mine as such is whole, but it comes out of the casing. I tend to push it back gently and they’re still usable but they never reattach to the packaging. I used to store them upside down so I could see the color stripe (example shown here), but now I store them horizontally to avoid further breakage. This also sometimes happens with my Rouge Allure & Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks. I had a similar problem with a thin Estee Lauder lipstick from an LE (not their usual lipstick design) and an old MAC shadestick, but unlike the Chanel items which are still like new those two makeup items were also dried up so I chucked them out. I don’t understand why my Chanel things don’t like to stay properly in their packaging.

But the above is just a general observation. It has not yet happened with Pacific Green, which is a lovely eyeliner if you want the thicker, less crisp design of a soft pencil.
