Clio Professional Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner
The product: Clio Professional Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Gel Liner in Metallic Silver No. 6
Price: Around 10-12,000 won (400-480 PhP); This is available here in the Philippines for 475PhP! 
Where I bought it: Artbox, Anyang, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea
Rating: 10/10
  • Has a smooth and creamy texture which glides easily on my eyelid
  • Smudge-proof and waterproof 
  • Lasts all day
  • It's an automatic eyeliner which means it has a twist mechanism to reveal more of the "lead"
  • Has a built-in sharpener at the bottom
  • Cap fits the pencil liner perfectly--the eyeliner is well-protected
  • Comes in a box which has a description of the product (sadly I lost the box already; it has been almost a year since I purchased this)
  • Did not cause any allergic reaction or irritation
  • Since it has a creamy texture, it can break easily if you bring out too much of the "lead" while sharpening or using it. Aside from that, I don't have anything negative to say about this eyeliner. I love it! ♥

I keep it blunt because I'm more comfortable using it that way. :)
As the name of the product explicitly states, this is basically a gel liner in pencil form. Normally gel eyeliners come in tubs and you'd have to use an eyeliner brush to apply it on your lids so this pencil form is actually very convenient. You get the creaminess and lasting power of a gel liner in an easy to use form. Winner! ;)
I like using this product to line my lower lashline, much like how you would use a glitter liquid eyeliner. I believe it makes my eyes look dazzling, haha. It adds sparkle to the eyes even without the use of eye shadows. When I don't have much time to do full eye makeup (which is like 90% of the time; I'm a busy med student, lol) but I still want to make my eyes look pretty, I just use black eyeliner on my upper lid, swipe this on my lower lash line, apply mascara on my lashes and I'm done!

I just added the box to focus your attention on the swatch. :)) The lighting may have been too bright.  :))

Another box! 
The pigmentation of this liner is superb! It just takes one swipe to give me the kind of look that I want. It lasts all day and when I say all day I mean from around 8AM until about 10 or 11PM which is the time I remove my makeup. It is smudge-proof and waterproof; tears don't stand a chance!
I actually also have this eyeliner in Golden Black No. 7 and I love it just as much as this one! Korean cosmetics dominate my makeup kit(s) because I find them affordable and of great quality. Because I am a fan of Kpop, my makeup style is often inspired by Korean female idols/artists. Korean cosmetics for Kpop style makeup, that's how I roll! Hahaha.
So how does it look on my eyes? Below are some pictures of me wearing this eyeliner. This shimmery/glittery eyeliner look is actually inspired by the Korean girl group Dal Shabet during their live performances of the song "Mr. Bang Bang." Sometimes the glitters on their eyes looked gold, sometimes it looked silver. I'm not really sure. :))

I've read somewhere that Clio Professional has a stall inside the department store of SM Megamall. I personally haven't seen it yet so I'm not quite sure if they do exist there. The next time I'm in that mall I'll make sure to drop by the department store to check. I will update this entry then. Hopefully they have this eyeliner because I'd love to purchase the other shades available!  I've been to SM Megamall and I've seen Clio in the department store. It's on the same shelf where another Korean brand, Peripera, is. They sell this for 475pesos. :)
What eyeliners have you tried that worked for you? How else would you use a metallic silver eyeliner on your eyes? Let's talk about it in the comments section below! :)
