Back in secondary school, you were no-one unless you had a Tippex pen, smelly gel pens, a shatterproof ruler and a Groovy Chick pencil case. And a clicky four-colour pen, of course, because those things were MAGIC.

Felt like swapping from blue to green writing mid-sentence? Wanted to underline something in red? Needed to whip up a snazzy birthday card at the last minute on a sheet of foolscap paper? The pen had your back.

As adults with phones and laptop, we don’t have as much use for four-colour pens, but the thought of that colour-change still gets us a little excited.

So we were buzzing yesterday when we were sent a sample of Clarins’ Spring 2017 beauty buys, and spotted a colour-changeable eyeliner/lipliner pen in the mix. Here it is in action on Irish Times columnist Laura Kennedy’s Instagram:

The Clarins 4 Colour All-In-One Eyes & Lips Pen is a limited edition beauty combo which will retail at €36. Featuring three eyeliners – black, blue and brown, plus a creamy nude lipliner, this pen is giving us those secondary school stationary chills all over again. Get it on beauty counters from January 23rd – or ask our ed nicely for a go of hers…
