Hey guys, i’m finally back to blogging. I really wanted to blog more about beauty related items long time ago but there were hesitation, like commitment issues, time management as well as my own confidence whether i can do well in this aspect. But then, if i don’t try, i wouldn’t know right? So, i happened to be sick today and i’m at home instead of school, i took out all my makeup and sorted them out and made a list of what i wanted to review. So for today, it is Clio Gelpresso Eyeliners.
I will review all the products by different rounds.
Round 1 – Swatches (Will include how it feels & how is the pigmentation)
Round 2 – Let’s put that baby on! (Will apply the product on face and how it feels)
Round 3 – Really meh? (Will test out if the product does what it claims – smudgeproof, waterproof,long staying etc)
Round 4 – In a nutshell.. (Conclusion about the product + price + where to buy)
I know that this product isn’t new in the market, in fact it’s old. (lol) But here is my honest review about this.
Info: (From the packaging, i forgot to take pictures of that!) It is filled with sliding gel texture in the retractable auto pencil. It glides on smoothly and gives high-defined eye line. Creamy and melting formula stays put all day long without smudge.
They do not contain paraben and talc (Paraben is found in breast cancer tumor!!! OMG!)
13- Bloody sweet, 14- Bloody angel and 15-Bloody devil in full size. (They contain 0.5g of product)
Ok, i really like the packaging, it’s sleek and it looks nice! It comes with a sharpener at the back, twistable eyeliner so save the trouble of manually sharpening it 😀
Also, CLIO GELPRESSO PENCIL GEL LINERS MINI
I think i bought this because i wanted to try out their other colours, but i didn’t want to buy full-sized (knowing that i would be wasting it X; ) Somemore, Dara is on the packaging!
Each box comes with 5 mini liners (this one is the packaging with Dara on the cover)
Colours : #5 Golden Black, #7 Bloody angel, #9 Gold shine, #10 Deep sea blue, #11 Jade Green
This is the another box.
Colours: #5 Golden Black, #4 Dark choco, #3 Star purple ,#2 Golden khaki, #1 Beige shine
It’s about 9.8cm long. Very small-sized.
The total length of product in the pen.
ROUND 1- SWATCHES
As you can see, there is a bit of shine in the liners, pigmentation is very good, very smooth application, it’s like an ink pen.
These are the swatches for the minis.
Deep sea blue is the only colour (in my collection of Clio Gelpresso liners) that doesn’t contain any shine.
Deep sea blue is also the most among all the others, hard to apply. It is drier in a sense. WAIT THERE IS A TWIST. (Read till the end to find out! :P)
All the swatches (the tip of Deep sea blue broke off as it was so dry when i tried to swatch it T_T)
ROUND 2 – LET’S PUT THAT BABY ON!
Eyelid – Bloody devil, Outer waterline – Bloody angel, inner corner: Bloody sweet
Very true to colour and glides on easily!
ROUND 3 – REALLY MEH?
Product claims to be smudgeproof and waterproof. But i will add one more test – sweatproof? (Since it’s so humid in Singapore)
Waterproof? YES! (I washed with water, u can see the water droplets)
Sweatproof? I went on to play Dance central (I did 4 songs!) and the result of my eye makeup…
Sorry it’s blur! The colour faded off abit but not very noticeable unless you see from close up.
Sweatproof? Still acceptable lah~
ROUND 4 – IN A NUTSHELL
♥ Very pigmented, easy to apply, smudgeproof, waterproof, don’t need to sharpen manually (won’t be messy)
♥ Many colours to choose from.
♥ Easily found in many asian countries, mostly in Watsons.
∗ It turned out that after the tip of Deep Sea Blue broke, the liner became smoother, but then, the tip is now blunt since it’s not possible to sharpen the Gelpresso liners minis. But if the liner seem to be dry in a full sized product, you can break off the tip and sharpen it.
× Gelpresso liners minis cannot be sharpened, so they will be blunt after some use.
Watsons in Singapore (Some branches don’t have Clio though)
S$18.90 for Full-sized.
S$25.90 for minis box.
(If not in rush, try to buy during Watsons sales! 20%/ 2nd item 50% off! – it happens quite often!)
