During the week, I like to pretend that I’m Clark Kent going incognito at work, with glasses and minimal makeup. Come the weekend, BAM! I unleash my awesomeness upon the world.
Ok, I’m not really a dazzling blinding beauty, but you get what I mean. During the weekend, I get to play dress up and look prettier than I usually do. I prefer not to dress up for office cos:
- I’d rather spend that extra 15 mins sleeping in the morning.
- I feel that office makeup should be kept a bare minimal to maintain professionalism.
- After working in magazines for 5 years, I have come to the sad realisation that there really isn’t anyone to impress in the office – majority of magazine peeps are women or gays who will be more fabulous than me even when they’re sleeping.
Over the last weekend, I was preparing my face to head out when I was faced with a dilemma. With more time comes more makeup choices. What eyeliner should I use?
CLIO Professional Kill Black Waterproof Brush Liner – SGD25.90
As you may have noticed, I like to keep all my products in their original boxes even after opening, unless I’m carrying them around in my makeup pouch. Strange much, I know.
Immensely black, amazingly thin
Top: Laneige Natural Eyeliner, Bottom: CLIO Professional Kill Black Waterproof Brush Liner
The C (which clearly stands for CLIO) has a very slight shimmer to it – like how our roads are so black they kind of glitter in the sun?
Both are double-stroked and the intensity of the black is comparable. It depends on what sort of black you want.
The rub test: The CLIO liner is more resistant!
Application and Effects
I wore it for the whole day and it stayed. Wow. I say buy it because:
It is indeed, as it claims, waterproof.
It is smudge-proof.
It could possible be oily eyelid-proof as well.
The brush tip is fine and soft – gives you good control without poking your eyeballs out.
It comes with a spring-loaded cap so that you’ll always know when you’ve closed the cap properly – the “click” sound does the job.
Looks like for once, the advertisement does not lie. Check out how awesome Lee Hyori 이효리 looks. Apparently 50,000 pieces were sold on the day it was launched, and it’s now known as the “Lee Hyori eyeliner”.
Available in black and brown
For only S$25.90, it’s an amazingly underrated brand in Singapore. Buy it nao!
