This easy to use Quickliner from Clinique is easy to apply and glides on for all day wear. Its non-drying formula prevents lipstick from bleeding and feathering and it does not need to be sharpened. To use: Only extend the Quickliner 3mm (1/8) as it does not retract. This prevents the pencil being exposed to the air and drying out. Follow dot-dot-dash method to ensure ease and accuracy of application: Draw two dots on upper lips bow, a dash across bottom of lower lip, then connect all three. Make sure cap is secured properly when not in use to protect the formula.
