Clarins Crayon Khol in 05 Intense Violet Review and Swatches

I was given two  products from the upcoming Clarins Autumn collection to show you and I would like to start with the Crayon Khol as it is a brand new product.

I  have been wearing it every day for the past week and am ready to share my impression.
