Chanel Spring 2012: Chanel Grenat Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

Chanel Grenat Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($29.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as “garnet.” It’s a rich burnished burgundy-red with a subtle coppery-red shimmer and even subtler sheen. It has pretty good color payoff in a single pass, though it tends to look browner and less red. If you were worried it might appear too red on the lash line, it doesn’t–it seems to compliment and work well against the natural tones of the skin so it does not make eyes look bloodshot.

This eyeliner formula is good; it’s both waterproof and long-wearing–no fading, smudging, or disappearing over the course of ten hours. Though the size of twist-up pencils always worries me, it’s true across all price points (from drugstore to high-end). There’s a sharpener on the opposite end which detaches and enables you to sharpen the tip of the eyeliner. The pencil is small enough that, for the most part, sharpening isn’t a must (as, inevitably, you’ll waste some product by doing so).  It’s creamy enough that it delivers good pigmentation in a single pass, but it could be a little creamier to enable better glide.

This is a good formula, and the color is interesting; it may or may not be your cup of tea, though! It works well with the colors from Chanel's spring collection, especially the eyeshadow quad.

    I like it :) will work for wine-themed smokey eye

  2. You’re right, the color is interesting. I’ve been getting into burgundy and black cherry eyeliners recently, so I would try this one.

  3. Emi

    I really like this eyeliner. Do you think it would go with Mac Star Violet or Cranberry? Thanks!

  4. This looks very interesting!! I’ve been looking for something similar, but I’m worried it will be dry (It looks a bit dry in the close-up) did you have problems with that?

  5. I will get this one for sure! I have hazel eyes like urs and anything burgundy is a must for me

    How does this compare to UD’s Gash e/s?

    This is lovely. I’m glad you addressed what looks like a very red base to the eyeliner because that was my first worry when I looked at the swatch! You know Christine I read your blog every day and just love it! I’m older, I’m 50 and this type of eyeliner is perfect for when us mature ladies want to have a smokey day eye but don’t want to go full out on black eyeliner. Love it! Thanks! :D

    That color will complement green eyes so well; I just wish it was more affordable.

  9. This looks like a redder/more burgundy version of Urban Decay 1999. :D

    This reminds me of Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes liner in 18L.

    Looks like it could be similar to MAC Raven Kohl Power pencil? Maybe Raven has a darker base though. I’m hoping they’re close enough that I can skip this one :)

    Looks like a dupe might be NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Rust (see this post for a swatch http://ethereal–beauty.blogspot.com/2011/04/nyx-jumbo-eye-pencils-swatches.html). I’d really really like to see a swatch comparison before buying the much more expensive Chanel Grenat. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils are £4.50 plus shipping online, versus Grenat which will be something closer to £15-£20 most likely. However the NYX pencils may not perform nearly as well. I don’t really know – I was just looking for a colour dupe.

    Other similar products might be MAC shadesticks in Blurberry (it’s not as dark but it’s similar) or Crimsonaire (brighter and pinker).

    Este color se ve muy lindo, pero tengo mis dudas. No vaya a ser que parezca que tuviera conjuntivitis al usarlo!

    What are you wearing on your eyes in this photo? It’s not in Looks yet, and it’s gorgeous!

  15. I’ve never tried this shade in eye liners. Looks gorgeous!
