Remember how unbelievably awesome those cool 4-in-1 clickable pens were when you were in middle school? Using it to draw your crush’s name in a heart, pump up your doodle game or to make note-taking slightly more exciting is the stuff nostalgic adolescent memories are made of. If you didn’t have one of these pens, your pencil case was not complete.
Now that we are all grown up, we spend our time analyzing texts with our friends instead of drawing hearts in our notebooks. And alas, our clickable pens have been tossed to the wayside like an old pair of stilettos. But now there’s a way to tap into that primal urge to switch colors with the flick of a thumb.
Check out Clarins’ 4-color all-in-one pen. For $30 you get three eyeliners and one lip liner in one awesomely handy-dandy pen. This thing is amazeballs—and downright affordable—when you consider that it’s actually four pencils in one. You get bright sky blue, classic kohl black and velvety chocolate brown for the eyes along with a neutral beige for the lips.
Just think how much space you’ll save in your makeup bag. It’s like Marie Kondo’s decluttering dream come true. And, with this clever pen stashed in your purse, you’ll be ready for whatever the day brings. No longer will you have to cry out to the heavens, “ARGH, I left my black eyeliner at home and all I have is this brown one!” Now you will have them all together. Just as they were meant to be. Unless of course you left the entire pen at home. Then you’re SOL.
Use it on-the-go, as a touch up between work and happy hour or to pull out all the stops for date night. Or just draw a doodle on your face. Just kidding. Leave the hideous hairdos and ill-fitting jeans where they belong—in the 1980s.
