Chanel Le Crayon Yeux Crayon Contour des Yeux Precision (Precision Liner) in #70 Khaki Platine is a beautiful shimmery khaki toned silver taupe. It is very soft and blendable. It seems to last well on the eye but I did rub my swatches about 15 mins after applying to my hand and it was still very smudegable at that point. I have no intention of rubbing my eye that hard so I'm sure it will be fine ;-) It is a shame this isn't the same waterproof formula as Rose Platine though because that sucker you could take a belt sander too and it would still look perfect.

I tried applying the liner all over my lid and into the crease to see how it would work as a base or to use on it's own. It is a VERY nice creamy liner. I was able to apply it even easier than the Le Metier de Beaute Dualistic liner in Champagne that I frequently use as a base. I will update the full FOTD pics soon of how I finished the look off by adding a shade from the Chanel Murano quad.

Love that it comes with it's own sharpener!

Liner on one end, smudging tip on the other:

Notice how it changes with the light (as always you can click to enlarge):

Smudged with the included tip:

Chanel Khaki Platine all over lid into crease and on lower lash line. Edges blended out with attached smudger. MAC Femme Fi on brow bone and Le Metier de Beaute Precision Liquid Liner to line upper lash line.
