CLIO Gelpresso Eyeliner Review

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a review of the CLIO Gelpresso Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Golden Black.  It is a Korean eyeliner so it is difficult to find in regular US beauty stores; however, you can order them at some online stores that sell Korean cosmetic products.

Color: Matte black with subtle hints of gold and silver glitter - gives a nice tone-downed sparkle to the black color.

Applying: I have to say that it applies pretty well.  It is not too smooth so you do have to draw back and forth to get the right amount.

How long it lasts: I put the eyeliner on in the morning around 9 AM and by 4 PM it started smudging and transferred to my lower lash line making me look like I had raccoon eyes.

Taking it off: Very Difficult.  I use my amazing Estee Lauder Eye Makeup Remover which removes almost every eye makeup I use without difficulty.  However, the Gelpresso Eyeliner would not come off with the remover and it almost looked like the eyeliner stained my eyelids.  I used twice as much remover than I usually do, which made me want to not use the eyeliner again.

Final Thoughts: It is not a go-to product for me.  The fact that it smudges after a while and is extremely difficult to get off are big turnoffs for me especially because I am an avid fan for long-lasting eyeliner.  Recommended for short-term wear (dinner dates, going shopping, watching movies, etc...)


  1. Oh, thanks for reviewing this, I was actually looking at some of Clio eyeliners not long ago - but now I will stay away from this since I don't like the ones which are sooo hard to get off! haha.
