Clio – Brush Liner Kill Brown and Kill Black

image

I bought both Clio Kill Brown and Kill Black at the same time from Watsons in Singapore.  Needed a little getting used to coz I had been using Clio G
Gelpresso and Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Liners, which are more manageable for me.  As you can see from the picture, I had bought the combo pack that comes with the Makeup Cleansing Oil. I Haven’t tried the Cleansing Oil but I will do a review on it when I have.

About the Product
Those of you who have used the Clio products like their Gelpresso Eye Liners and Shadow Pencils will agree that the Clio products, which are made in Korea, are affordable yet delivers high quality results. They are also known for their Lipnicure tints but most of the time its their eyeliners that beats many brands hands down. I have posted a review on their Pro Makeup Remover recently, so here’s another star product that both Dorkchops and Hunnybunnysoph had reviewed in their blogs.

Both Kill Brown and Kill Black are waterproof eyeliners that glides on easily and set almost instantly. I like the fine brush that dispenses the product and till now I did not experience any blobs (over discharge of product forming a droplet at the brush tips). Upon application, the liquid product sets quickly, leaving no chance of smudging or transferring onto the rest of the lids.

Using the Product
I have slightly oily lids (I didnt know when it started) so when I first use it on naked lids, it didn’t last as long as I would like. In about 3 hours the eye lines start to “disappear” leaving only some patches of it on the lids. The second time I used the eye liner, I remembered to dust on some eye shadow to help absorb some oil and hold the eyeliner. It helped and seems like the way to go for me.

Between Kill Brown and Kill Black, I would say that Kill Brown is more subtle esp for those who want to wear eye makeup but want to have it toned down while at the same time accentuate the eyes. If you have light coloured hair or naturally dark brown hair like me, Kill Brown in its dark chocolate shade will do the job just fine. You can wear it on its own, just remember to dust on some loose powder to absorb oil before drawing on.

Kill Black on the other hand has similar staying power but the effects are a lot more dramatic or harsh. It will definitely deliver the edgy look or the classic 60s look that is a fave these days. Heavy eye makeup will go well with Kill Black to bring out the “edginess”. 😄

Where to Buy the Product
The usual places – Club Clio outlets if you are based on USA or Korea, Koreadepart or Qoo10 if you shop online, or Watsons if you are in Singapore.

I like my Kill Brown and Kill Black,and will definitely repurchase them. What about you?

Clio – Pro Makeup Lip & Eye Remover (Perfect & Easy Cleansing)

Clio Pro Makeup Lip and Eye Remover.jpgI bought this product when it was on sale back in June 2014. Clio was having a buy two for the price of one. I had a quick swipe and it went straight into my shopping basket.

About the Product

Those of you who have used Clio’s Kill Bill or Gelpresso lines will be familiar with this brand. Its just that this makeup remover could not be found in Singapore. This is one of those oil and water type of make up remover, but what is amazing is that it has a pleasant scent, and it does wipe off the Clio waterproofs very well. I’ve even use it to remove my lipsticks and they come of clean, without drying my lips. One thing to note though, due to the packaging of this product, you may not realise that you have to shake the bottle to mix the contents before you just pumping out the product onto your cotton pads.

Using the Product

Shake the bottle, and pump it into your cotton pad. For removing eye shadows and eye liners, gently lay the wet cotton pad on your eyes for a few seconds and then swipe lightly. Tadah! The shadows and eye liners come off! If you want to be absolutely sure you’ve removed the liners (esp those with glitters), you can fold into a corner, and run it lightly along your eye lines, until your cotton pads do not pick up anymore residues. To remove your lipstick, wet your cotton pad with the product and then lay it over your lips gently. Give it a few seconds before you lightly wipe your lips with the cotton pad. Again, you can fold the cotton pad into corners to run it around the edges of your lips (esp if you like lip pencils or you are prone to outbreaks if you do not remove your lipsticks properly).

Where to Buy the Product

I like this product and I will buy more if I run out! I can’t find this in Singapore, but if you have Club Clio around your town or city, you’ll have a much better chance to find this product in the stores. Koreadepart carries something similar but its called Waterproof Makeup Lip & Eye Remover.

Clio – Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Shadow

image

I’ve blogged about wanting to do a review on another Gelpresso product which I love very much.  Today, I am going to talk about Clio’s other amazing Gelpresso product – the Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Shadow. There are many brands in Korea that produces gel based eye shadow, for one, Etude House has its Bling Bling Eye Stick.

Now why do I love the Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Shadow so much?

This gel based shadow is light and glides on my lids (which gets oily at times) like a ballerina. Its so smooth that you want to glide on your lids a few more times! I find the colours (see those in picture) subtle and suitable if you are looking for subtle highlight on your eyes (and at the same time you don’t want your eyes to scream out loud!). I have yet to try out its midnight black (its sitting snuggly in my drawer for now!) but I must say that this shadow definitely stays on for full 8 hours (!) IF you are working in an air-conditioned office and had to walk out into the humid tropical weather to grab some decent lunch. It worked for me, at least. For more drama, use the Shadow with its sister product, the Eyeliner – now that does a little evening glam-me-up!

About the Product
When I started putting on the Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Shadow, I was worried that it may not “set” fast enough or “set” too fast. I am happy to update that the Shadow does not set immediately (indeed) but does its job in a matter of 1-2 minutes to “dry” up to give you that subtle glitter. I did try to do a little bit of smudging – it worked, but only if your nimble fingers get on lightly to spread the colour a little. Once its set you are good to go!

Another point I want to highlight is that since this is a glittery Shadow (as you can see from the picture), the removal can be a bit challenging if you are used to using Bioderma Sensibio to remove it. Bioderma is too gentle and does not work well (I repeat, DOES NOT WORK WELL) with the Gelpresso Waterproof Shadow). It took me a long long time to get all the colour off my lids at the end of the day (now that’s staying power!). I had to resort to using the Sephora Triple Cleansing Water (which is mild yet effective) to remove the Shadow it in one to two light swimageeeps.

The Gelpresso Beer Pong is my favourite, and In the Dark is my second favourite (note: this is Silver in colour). I wear Beer Pong in the day – to give some lift on my tired eyes, and In the Dark near the edge of my lids for evening events. A little smudge work gives that subtle glittery smokey look using In the Dark but can’t say the same for Beer Pong – unless you had it with other darker shadows to accentuate the light glitter.

Where to Buy the Product

All Watsons in Singapore carries a decent range of Clio Products. I don’t remember seeing the Waterproof Pencil Shadow, but those living in Singapore who are reading this blog are welcomed to correct me so that I can update this blog. Other places you can purchase Clio Waterproof Shadow are”

1) Qoo10 – search for Clio Waterproof Shadow and you should be able to find a few vendors who brings in the product at decent price. Check the delivery charges though coz some may charge a couple of dollars more for mailing it to you.

2) Koreandepart – my new favourite korean products website. I recently ordered my other Label Yong products and new Clio eyeliners here and it arrived in less than 2 weeks from Korea (direct).

3) Club Clio USA –  For those who are overseas, try Club Clio USA online shop to get what you want. This online shop also carries the products under the same parent company i.e. Peripera and Goodal. I have not purchased from this website because I can find it from the above two sites.

Clio – Gelpresso Eyeliners

image

 

I bought these when I was in Seoul last June. In addition to the Gelpresso eye-shadow (which I love coz it lasts for at least 6 hours before it starts to run out – I will blog about this in another post), I just could not get my hands off these gel based eye liners (and they were on sale!) that glides over my eyes so quickly and easily. I am not very good at drawing eye liners so I tend to look for eye liners that glides and does not smudge. This worked very well for my clumsy hands and the colours worked well on my pale skin. The colours last and it does glide on better than the other korean brands that I’ve tried in MyeongDong which are also gel-based. I ended up ordering a few more from Qoo10 for my sister!

How to remove the gel-based eyeliner?

I recommend water-based makeup removers that works well with waterproof eye shadows. However, if you are comfortable with other types of gel-based makeup removers, that’s fine as well. Bottom line: It must remove ALL residue of the eye liners. Make up remover should not irritate your eyes!

Use a cotton bud soaked with the make up remover or fold a lint-free cotton pad to form a sturdy triangle corner and run it along the edge of your lids. Please be gentle and try not to stretch your lids too much (we don’t want to see wrinkles!). Always pay attention to spaces between your eye lashes – its easy to have some eyeliner residue trapped there!

Where to purchase Clio Gelpresso Eyeliners?

Its easy to get it in Watsons in Singapore. There is always a rack of Clio products in the Watsons stores including eye shadow, lipsticks, etc. If you are going to MyeongDong, you can visit the personal care shops that carries multiple brands or pop into a Clio shop (yup, they have outlets in MyeongDong).

Online from Asia, you can purchase Clio products from:

1) Qoo10 – I realise there are many sellers carrying Clio eyeliners, but not the gelpresso eye shadow. The pricing is rather competitive especially during sale time.

2) Taobao- my new online shopping spot with help from 65daigou.

3) Club Clio website – its all in Korean. I didnt buy from there before but if you understand hangul you should check if they ship overseas.

Let me know what you think of these Clio products! 🙂
