Review: Clio Professional Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner

Hi Glamifys,

There is a Korean brand retailing at Watsons called Clio Professional. They are supposedly known for their Gel automatic pencil liners. It’s a gel formula but instead of using a brush and a gel pot, it has been packaged in a pencil form for convenience.

Each Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner costs around SGD 17.90 before any discounts or rebates are included. (the regular Watsons & everyday card rebates can be used for Gelpresso)

This is what I purchased (from left to right):

Metallic Silver No.6, Star Purple No. 5, Chic Navy No. 8 & Golden Black No. 7

Each pencil comes with a sharpener which you can pull out from the end of the pencil. I personally don’t use this as my eyeliner application do not require a super fine tip. The sharpener is also to sharpen the liner “lead” itself. Not the entire pencil since it is automatic. This means that you only have to turn the top of the pencil for new liner to retract out.

** Unlike Mac’s brow pencils, Gelpresso allows you to turn clockwise for new liner and also to anti clockwise to retract back into the pencil.

Here’s what I think of each colour:

Silver:

– Metallic with a shiny finish

– There are small flecks of silver glitter

– Pretty for highlighting the inner corner of the eyes (nearest the nose)

Purple:

– base colour is purplish black

– specks of bright purple glitter

– nice alternative to black eyeliner since it is dark enough for smokey eyes

Blue:

– Dark blue base

– dark blue fine glitter

– nice to use it on its own or as a base. I prefer this colour for my lower line as it is not as harsh as black yet there is definition.

Black:

– black base although there is a more greenish tint to it

– specks of golden glitter

– glitter is not very obvious on the eye

– pretty for neutral looks that need some definition to the eyelash.

As with all products, there are pros & cons. So here goes:

Pros:

– gel sets in a minute. Does not smudge easily. Waterproof

– stays on for very long. Suitable for oily or hooded eyelids where regular eyeliners smear easily.

– colour stays true for many hours. Glitters adhere well to the eyelid

Cons:

– might not be suitable to sensitive waterlines (I cannot use any Gelpresso colour on the inner rim of the eyes)

– some glitter may fall out during application so apply some loose powder to catch fall out.

– a very good eye makeup remover will be needed

I rubbed my skin hard and only the glitter came off a little. The base colour did not budge.

After putting water and rubbing, extremely minimal smudging occurred.
