[Haul] Clio Eyeliner, Lipnicure & Cushion CC from HiShop

All I wanted to try from Clio was the Waterproof Pen Liner Kill Black. I have heard a lot of good things about this eyeliner and I want to check it out myself whether the quality is worth the hype. So, I head to HiShop and gotten myself all the Clio products that are available.

I'm going to do a quick review on each product. And let's start with the eyeliner because that's the product which I wanted to try initially.

Clio Waterproof Pen Liner Kill Black

What it is:
The Clio Waterproof Pen Liner Kill Black helps you to draw clear eye lines with deep black (included in carbon black) color. Beginner can use it easily by just one touch without breaking line. It is waterproof and no smudge formula so you can enjoy clear lines for a long time.

This is indeed an easy eyeliner to use. It feels like a fine marker pen. And it is easy to control the thickness and the intensity of the line. The eyeliner last all day long. Everything is good about this eyeliner, except I don't know if it is oil-proof. Some people's eyelid gets oily throughout the day. And I'm not sure if this eyeliner can sustain that. Let me know in the comment if you have any good or bad experience with this eyeliner. I really want to know.

Clio Virgin Kiss Lipnicure

What it is:
Manicure for the lips. Specially developed to provide extreme long-lasting effect and high intensity colors for a flawless finish with a single touch upon lips.

The Lipnicure gives a matte finish texture. I love that the Lipnicure is able to stay in place for the whole day. It doesn't bleed and you don't need lip liner for it. But like every matte lip product, it is quite dry on the lips. When you first swatch it, it gives a moisturized feeling. Then it slowly dries up to a matte texture (something like acrylic paint after it dries up). I have a love-hate relationship with this product. It is a pretty good product if I don't have a dry lips. And I prefer it to come with a lip brush rather than the doe-foot applicator. It is so hard to get a precised line with the applicator.

Clio VF 21 Cushion CC in 01 Pink

What it is:
VF 21, acronym of Volume face 21, will help moist and resilient skin back like 21 years of age.

If you ever use CC Cream before, this has the same function, except it comes in a cushion form. It is a product for day wear as it has SPF50+ and PA+++ for an adequate protection from UVA and UVB. If you're looking for a  product to even out your skin tone, this is a perfect one. However, it doesn't give enough coverage to conceal dark spots and dark eye circle. I also find it a good product for makeup base.

Overall, I am very happy with the eyeliner and VF 21 Cushion CC. It is totally worth every penny. But for the Lipnicure, I don't like the doe-foot applicator and the drying effect it has on my lips. Here's how I look with all the products in action. Red lips is totally not my kind of thing...
