Lovely and Long Lasting Natural Korean Beauty Products – A CLIO Makeup Review {GIVEAWAY} !

Kill Black/Brown Waterproof Brush Liner and Mascara Set

{ These items were provided for review by Peach and Lily as were the giveaway items! }

I’m so excited to finally review these products I received for review from Peach & Lily! If you don’t know already, I love Asian beauty products and Korean beauty is often the height in cutting edge beauty products because they are always coming out with great new products that do insane, yet amazing things for you beauty-wise whilst still managing to look natural.

Clio Makeup has definitely held up to this ideal when it comes to Korean makeup products. 

The first item I received is a 2 piece set with the Clio O’Tank Volume Mascara in Black and the Clio Waterproof Eyeliner in Kill Brown. Both are equally amazing! The color for both is very pigmented and lasts all day long without smudging, creasing or fading.

The mascara has this well-designed curved mascara wand which helps to curl lashes during application and it works incredibly well. Although I have naturally long lashes, they tend to point down and fall down by the end of the day. I actually think this mascara has taken the place of my favorite Dior Extase Mascara and that’s saying something!

The liquid eyeliner is super easy to use for getting a very thin or thick line, whatever you like. It has that felt tip marker design to it so it’s application is simple, even for newbies to liquid liner. I love that this lasts for hours and hours because I have pretty oily eyelids which tend to crease, smudge and fade any eye makeup within an hour, but this actually lasts all day long. Another thing is that, although the color is a natural brown ( I personally prefer black liners ), it’s still really pigmented and a very rich dark brown color. It looks intense while still looking natural enough for daytime makeup.

Friday Glow Liquid Shadow

The last item I received was this Clio Friday Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Deepen Brown. I’ve never tried a full on liquid eye shadow before so it was fun to try out something entirely new  and this did not disappoint! It’s incredibly pigmented, but you can apply small amounts of it if you want a lighter color payoff so it’s very customizable for different color intensities. I used it once for a lighter brown color and simply used less of the liquid on my eye and patted it in. I also tried the more intense full color which was very rich in color, but still pretty natural looking. I don’t think the full color could be worn during the day, but definitely would work well for neutral looks in the evening. It comes with an easy to use applicator that applies to the eyes easily without much difficulty. My only advice is to use less at first then build because the color payoff is really shockingly bold, despite being a natural shimmery brown color.

      I really loved testing them out! They are of great quality. Also, I know Korean beauty is mostly held in high regard in terms of innovation and things because they come out with things and our beauty industry often copies them xx

    Ooh, those look very nice. I must try some. I still don’t quite know the “right” way to apply makeup so it stays on! Oh, and I’d love to jump in on the giveaway but I am not on fb…following you on twitter now though 😉

      They are really lovely! I don’t think there’s a “right” way to apply makeup – just do what feels right for you. Everyone is different. Bust about not being on FB! Thanks for following me on Twitter though – maybe I’ll do a twitter giveaway in the future! xx

    Korean beauty products are really promising. With the glowing skin of Koreans that are envy by many, those products make the consumers going crazy about it. It becomes leading now. But personally, I will just try it out first and see for myself 🙂

    I haven’t actually tried any Korean products, but they’re making their way to the west here, and they seem like really good products! I’m anxious to try them!
