The girls around me are generally quite safe when it comes to cosmetic selection. Hardly anyone I know of knows how to apply eyeshadow and not to mention, coloured eyeliners. As for me, I really love playing with eyeshadow colours, but I know it is not something I would use everyday due to the lack of time.
To be honest, ever since I started working, my preparation time went down from one hour to only 30 mins. Because I would rather sleep in than spend hour drawing my face. With 30 mins, the items I use on my face should be easy and fast to use. No time for eyeshadow? Coloured eyeliners can actually do a wonderful job in adding colours to your eyes!
I had a surprise package from Clio recently that consists of three gelpresso liners. I used to love gel liners until I hate it that I had to clean my brushes with every use. So glad that Clio came up with the idea of gel liners in pencil form and that means no more cleaning of brushes!
The three colours given to me were bloody angel, bloody devil and bloody sweet. Yeah…I know..sounds abit bloody. But that’s precisely the case cos all three colours belong to the RED family.
From top to bottom: Bloody Devil, Bloody Angel and Bloody Sweet
My favourite has got to be Bloody Devil, which is a dark purplish red that is safe to use for all occasions. I like that it adds colour to my eyes without over exaggerating. And it is rather soft looking as compared to using liquid liner which can be too harsh at times.
My attempt on using all three colours! First, I had applied bloody devil as my base liner, and then I applied bloody angel at the ends, above my base liner for a subtle pop of colour, mimicking that of an eyeshadow, and lastly bloody sweet at the corners of my eyes to open up my eyes. I’m pretty pleased with the result! Do try it. Coloured liners are not that difficult to use. In fact, it can be easier to use than eyeshadows which requires the art of blending.
My eyes instantly look bigger without using harsh eyeliners. Also, I find the bloody colours make my eyes look watery than usual!
Taking a closer look … how do you find it? I’m definitely loving the pop of colour on my eyes!
(Anw…my blusher is from Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in Blueberry Pie and I love it!)
The only thing about this eyeliner is that it is thicker than usual and goes blunt easily, therefore it requires frequent sharpening. It is also quite easily broken.
But the innovative design has included a sharpener on top of the liner! How genius!
The eyeliner also live up to its claim and didn’t smudge for the whole day! Nots bads!
Overall, I’m pretty satisfied with the liner and would rate it an 8/10.
All Clio liners can be found in Watsons.
