With my discovery of Asian beauty I started to know and love pen eyeliner. They are so easy and convenient to use and they make your makeup routine much more quickly than using a gel or liquid eyeliner and still are comparably pigmented. I usually tend to use up my eyeliner pens before I buy any new ones so I just tried some of the available ones, like the Kiss Me Heroine Make Liquid Eyeliner Pen and the Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner Pen. Thanks to BBCOSMETIC I’m now able to try the famous Clio Kill Black Waterproof Pen Liner.
Club Clio Professional was founded by makeup artists in 1993 and they opened their first flagship in Seoul in 1998. They carry brands like Peripera and Goodal and the brand Clio of course. To be honest I did not try many of their products until now. except for the Clio Lipniqure (see my comparison review for the Clio and the RiRe Lip prducts)!
The Clio Kill Black Pen liner has been reviewed and liked by many other bloggers already and I’m sure that you will find more than one review for it when browsing the world wide web. Yet, keep in mind that there is also a Brush Liner available that looks similar but differs in the tip of the eyeliner. I didn’t try it though so I’m not able to compare them. The described pen liner in my post here though has been awarded the SokoGlam Awards and its description sounds really promising:
“A new and improved formula with an airtight locked cap makes the Clio waterproof pen liner unbeatable! No flaking, no smudging—this is liquid eyeliner revolutionized. The brush pen applicator tip allows for effortless dramatic winged eyeliner or barely-there, precise lines that will last all day and all night. And when you’re done? The Clio Waterproof Pen Liner is easy to remove with oil cleanser or makeup remover.”
No smudging, no flaking and long lasting pigmentation?! I’m in!! I have slightly hooded eyelids so I usually have the problem that my eyeliner if a bit bolder transfers to my eyelid, especially in the mornings when the makeup is still fresh and not tried completelly. So far I didn’t discover any eyeliner that didn’t smudge…
The Clio Kill Black Waterproof Pen Liner comes in a characteristic black and Yellow cardboard Box reminding me of “Kill Bill”. Inside the cardboard box you will find the pen liner. The eyeliner has a felt pen tip which is fine enough to draw thin lines but also allows bold eyeliner. The color is black and pigmented, too. It applies nicely on the eyes and allows building up the pigmentation with several strokes without flaking. So far so good, but what about the claim of being rub and waterproof? Honestly speaking I do not think that this eyeliner is waterproof. I could easily remove the swatches from my hand by rubbing (made it fade) and washing it with water only. The stain that remained was not really much of a deal anymore. Wearing it during the day turns out better still. The color only fades slightly, but usually my wings have disappeared completely. Also, like almost all other eyeliners, this eyeliner keeps transferring to my upper eyelid…:/
Compared to the other pen liner I tested this one comes before the Dolly Wink Pen Liner but still doesn’t compete with any waterproof liquid liner oder gel liner. The Clio Kill Black Waterproof Pen Liner is on the same rank as the Kiss Me Heroine Make Liquid Pen Liner for me. I received this eyeliner from BBCOSMETIC, but it is out of stock at the moment there. Still you might want t tske a look at this newly opened kbeauty store. You can use the code Q2C8JX9N45R3O for a chance of 10 % off your order, too! You can also get the Clio Kill Black Waterproof Pen Liner on amazon.de or amazon.com.
