My stash of…… Eyeliners!

REVAMPED!! I had revamped this post (if you have noticed)!!

What’s good will still be good and what’s not will remain as it is too!

In this post, I’m gonna be sharing my collection of eyeliners with you!

Without further ado, let’s read on!

CLIO – Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel liner

20131103-230328.jpg

Type: Gel Pencil

What I like: Anything GEL is my soft spot!! Smooth application and very convenient! Who says I need to bring a sharpener around to sharp my eyeliner pencil? Who says sharpener is a waste of space in your makeup pouch? Well, CLIO proofs you wrong!

Capture

This waterproof gel liner comes with a built-in sharpener! Small and handy! Waste space? I don’t think so..

What I don’t like: The only downside I suppose is that the tip gets broken easily. You have to be gentle when sharpening this..

How it look: Color is pretty shimmery like it can make you eyes glow!

These few pics are my worn out look.. it was almost end of the day when i took these pic and you can see the eyeliner is still visible (though a little fade off).

Removing it: Totally easy-peasy!! Even makeup remover sheet can do a good job!

How did I know about it: I get to know about CLIO from Bellabox! They were having some giveaway and I got lucky to bring home the dark blue gel liner (Bellabox giveaway) and later the Nude one from Vanity Trove!

Will I buy again: Yes! I’m a black eyeliner person! The last time I check out Watson’s for their eyeliner, they only has got black with gold shimmer. If guess if they have Gelpresso in black (just black), I will purchase them without hesitation!

K-Palette – Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h Waterproof 1 Day Tattoo

20131103-230427.jpg

Type: Liquid liner

What I like: This 1 Day Tattoo is really amazing! It’s not only waterproof, it’s smudgeproof! No matter how I try to rub it off, the eyeliner stays on like a stubborn cow! LOL.. Super good one for fine/precise line!!

20131103-230439.jpg

What I don’t like: Can’t afford any error..! One stroke off and that’s it. But there’s always a solution to every problem.. Use a pencil liner to draw the base color first (get the shape I want) then use my liquid eyeliner to go over it. By doing so, chances of my eyeliner getting out of shape is reduced greatly!

How it look: I haven’t try it on my eyes so will update this section when I do so!

Removing it: Although I mentioned that this liquid eyeliner is stubborn like a cow, you can still easily remove it with an oil-based makeup remover or any cleansing sheet.

20131103-230446.jpg

How did I know about it: Promoter?? I was at Japalang’s warehouse sale and the promoter was super promoting this!

Will I buy again: Hmm, maybe not. I’m not a liquid eyeliner person so it doesn’t really tempt me in getting a whole bunch home even if some superstar had endorsed it.

Secret Key – Secret Kiss Gel Pencil

20131103-230459.jpg 20131103-230505.jpg

Type: Gel Pencil

What I like: Like I mention, GEL liner is my soft spot! This is pretty much one of my favourite ever since KATE gel pencil was discontinued (check out my brief KATE post HERE & HERE).

What I don’t like: You need to sharpen this and it’s too short! I bought the full size eyeliner but doesn’t seems as good as this.. I don’t know maybe psychological effect..??

How it look: So here’s the 5 colors! Not all colors are of practical use to me actually… So far, I had tried the Shinee Pink (2nd from top), Choco Brown & Deep Black (last two).

This set of eyeliners are waterproof but I guess not smudge-proof. One rub and you see the color runs (or maybe I did not give it enough time to dry? I rub them immediately after I put down my last eyeliner pencil.. oops!)

20131103-230513.jpg 20131103-230520.jpg

Using my Secret Kiss Deep Black and Shinee Pink, this is my Monday look! I do not have double eyelid, The only reason I can think of now (to justify why it is showing in the pic) is that it must be due to TIRED EYES!

20131104-234943.jpg

The color is not as black as using a gel pot/liquidliner but it is definitely darker than using pencil. I used the black gel liner on my upper lid and the pink on my lower (just the inner) lid. With the aid of a mascara (in this makeup, I used Catrice waterproof mascara), my eyes looks brighter immediately! It’s a pity i wasn’t wearing my Misaki lens yesterday! Else it would be a GOOD EYE DAY~!

20131104-234915.jpg 20131104-234840.jpg

Below is my Choco Brown eyeliner~ It gives a softer look! So normally on days where I’m feeling a lil lazy, I’ll just put this on and a lil BB cream & I’m done.. at least I won’t look sleepy or look like I’m going around kill.. LOL!

20131106-114806.jpg 20131106-114814.jpg

Removing it: See after cleansing with my makeup remover sheet, the mark is still visible! Normally, I would use a gel based makeup remover to remove this! It’s only for this post, I used a makeup remover sheet.

20131103-230526.jpg

I’ve also screenshot some info from Secret Key (Qoo10 seller) about the product!

20131103-232246.jpg

How did I know about it: Qoo10! While doing window shopping I saw this and thought was pretty cool (& cheap) to try various color and there it goes into my cart! Sharing you with the link below!

20131103-232235.jpg

BTW, It’s waterproof.. not waterploof.. (LOL)

Color

Will I buy again: 80% Yes! If you like the set I had (Twinkle Edition No.1), sorry, I believe they are out of stock! But it’s ok, NEW colours are available (Twinkle Rose Edition No.2)!! I’m so tempted to get this!

20131103-232253.jpg

Maybelline – Lasting Drama Pen Gel Liner

20131103-230536.jpg

Type: Gen Pen

What I like: Intensively BLACK and opaque!! Waterproof and smudgeproof!! Not to forget it dry fast too!

What I don’t like: It’s kinda hard to control the gel ink and not very user friendly.. and dry too fast. LOL!

How it look: Nope I didn’t take any picture and decided to keep it till it expire and donate to the dustbin!

Removing it: Can’t remember!

How did I get to know: Window shopping kills! Hahahaha! Saw this in Watson’s and thought it’s pretty intense! so decided to give it a try…

Will I buy again: NO.

TONY MOLY

20131103-230536.jpg

Type: Gen bottle

What I like: This is my first gel eyeliner! Intensively BLACK and opaque tooo!! Like a pro when you have a bottle of gel eyeliner!! LOL~!

What I don’t like: Too troublesome to have to use a separate eyeliner brush!

How it look: I didn’t manage to picture of how it look on my eyes before it’s gone but this is really a good bottle if you do not have shaky hands!!

Looking at the below pic, what does it shows you? Maybelline indeed is a reputable brand huh? LOL! After applying the eyeliner, I tried using one finger to rub it (one stroke down) and result is clear! Maybe I didn’t give Tony Moly enough drying time?!

20131103-230802.jpg

Removing it: Easy peasy! Normal cleansing sheet/makeup remover can do a good job!

How did I get to know: Again, window shopping!

Will I buy again: Maybe?? Not that it’s no good.. BUT now that there’re gel pencil available, why still go for bottle one??? Not like I’m a pro~

Solone – Alice Fantasy Series Perfect Drawing Eyeliner: S$14.90

20140218-203455.jpg

Solone Black Cavier

Type: Gel Pencil

What I like: Do I still need to say this?? GEL of course~!! Alice Fantasy collection is cool because it can act as an eye shadow too! Not only that, its swivel design make things so easy for user (works similar like clio), it’s waterproof & smudgeproof!!

What I don’t like: I can’t find any fault.. probably not may colors to choose..?

How it look: The color I bought is #01 Black Cavier!!

20140218-203501.jpg 20140218-203510.jpg

It’s not solid black kinda tone but I love it with the little shimmer. Not too exaggerating yet not boring.

20140218-203515.jpg

Removing it: No challenge at all!

How did I get to know: Through a friend.. We were shopping at Plaza Singapore’s John Little and she recommended me this!

Will I buy again: Yes, I think it’s worth the value!

Solone – Gel Eyeliner: S$11.90

Solone Black

Type: Gel Pencil

What I like: The smooth application is awesome (smoother than Alice Fantasy)! No eyeliner that I purchase is not waterproof! I love gel and waterproof stuff!!! This eyeliner dries in quick 10 seconds! Hence there is no need to worry about smudging!!

What I don’t like: You really need a sharpener to sharpen this!! So not advance~

How it look: This is much darker than the fantasy collection..! Reminds me of the Tony Moly bottle gel liner..

20140218-203536.jpg

20140218-203547.jpg

Removing it: No trouble at all! Any remover can go a good job!

How did I get to know: Through a friend.. We were shopping at Plaza Singapore’s John Little and she recommended me this!

Will I buy again: Yes…! Who can resist gel pencil!?

Update as of 31 Oct:

I have using Holika Holika (bought online) for a period and I think I’m loving it.. Gimme some time and I shall share more about it later!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, to conclude it all, I usually purchase eyeliner based on ease of use! Waterproof or not is not an issue for me because non-waterproof eyeliner will nvr appear in my “to-buy list”. LOL.. If I have to give a recommendation based on what I’ve used today, It will be either Secret Kiss or CLIO Solone (It’s a pity I can’t find KATE Gel Pencil anymore). They are really easy to handle and no matter which level of eyeliner guru u are, Secret Kiss/CLIOSolone will never fails u! If you need something BOLD, I will recommend Tony Moly’s gel pot! It just take once to know if a product is good or not. Never try never know..

What’s next? Lip color or BB cream recommendation? Stay tune!

Note: Photos are not edited ok! So shy to show you my crumpled hand! (T_T)

    • Hi dear, if you have a pair of steady hands (sadly i don’t!! 😥 ), you can try waterproof liquid eyeliner! They are good for drawing precise line! Alternative, gel pencil (personally i like Solone and/or Holika Holika) should do the trick – just remember to sharpen your pencil before use to acheive that tightlining look.. Hope this helps! 😀
