Club Clio launched locally just this summer. Their (first) store is in Trinoma, which I was able to visit two days after they opened. I couldn’t leave without anything, so I bought two Ink Velvets that I had wanted for a while and this I’m about to review–Clio Sharp, So Simple Waterproof Pencil Liner in 01 Black.
I find it a challenge to find an eyeliner that wouldn’t budge, especially at an affordable price. (I know this isn’t that affordable, but compared to my Dior liners… You know what I mean.) I have tried various types of eyeliners to find the right one for me, and this search has taken me to vegan and even different coloured eyeliners. In case you do not like the chemical infused eyeliners and if you’re Vegan we recommend The Green Forks best Vegan eyeliner review.
The Clio Sharp, So Simple Waterproof Pencil Liner is slim at only 2mm–friendly for beginners; applies smoothly; has an intense color finish; and water-, sweat-, and oil-proof. It doesn’t need sharpening and is retractable.
There are four shades. I can’t recall if all of them are available here, but these are 01 Black, 02 Brown, 03 Cacao brown, and 04 Maroon Brown. I think the last two are new.
This needs to be warmed up to get an intense black. I don’t warm up on the back my hand, but I go back and forth on my waterline until I get that intensity I want. That could be the reason why I used this up quickly compared with my other liners. My Estee Lauder, for one, is taking forever and I used that everyday.
I was able to truly test its longevity when I went waterfalls swimming and diving. I forgot we were going swimming and I put a thick layer of this on my upper waterline. I also did a nearly hour-long, sweaty hike. This eyeliner held up so well throughout the day even with all the sweat and swimming. Take note, that was summer even. Besides being smudge-proof, it is truly beginner-friendly. The thin pencil makes it easy to line the eyes even without a really steady hand.
There were times it would come off near the outer corners of my eyes, but that’s only when my lids aren’t primed properly.
I am likely to repurchase because it worked so well for me. Only a different shade though… Just look at this Maroon Brown! ? I hope it can be a dupe for my
expensiveDior eyeliner. 😆
The fact that I used it up quickly is keeping me from buying, however. I wish the pencil was longer since it’s so thin anyway.
Clio is available in Trinoma (store), SM Makati (stall in the beauty section), and Zalora. I checked the latter and this specific product isn’t available there. The Clio Sharp, So Simple Waterproof Pencil Liner is PHP 520.
