I think we’ve made it pretty clear that around ITG HQ we have a certain fondness for a statement eye. Windows to the soul, and all that. But how many times can you strike a thick swath of liner across your lid à la Bardot without getting a little antsy to try something new? (I mean, we’d bet Brigitte herself probably wanted to try something different from time to time.) Clarins' new 3-Dot Liner is kind of the answer to our prayers: a three-pronged black eyeliner pen, intended to be applied at the base of the eyelashes to thicken your lashline without looking like you're wearing any eyeliner at all. BUT, because maybe we don't take direction that well, we were similarly impressed by how it simultaneously draws three perfectly parallel lines wherever you want them.
Not only is the result not boring, but if you keep the pen flat and twist it up at the end of your lash line, it can lend the appearance of freakishly long and plentiful eyelashes. No Latisse, no weird-feeling extensions. Can you say, “Fake it ‘till you make it?”
