Review: CLIO waterproof pencil liner Kill Black

Long time readers will know i adore the eyeliner pencils from MUFE. However i am slowly growing weary of sharpening them XD
So i am on the hunt for a pencil liner that does not require sharpening XD
Here is my latest purchase!

The pencil is autofeed [ie no sharpening required] however if you want to maintain a sharp point. a sharpener is included at the end of the liner.

A bit of a surprise to me. This is made in Italy.

Pros
- cheap, easy to buy [just buy on gmarket]
- no need to sharpen

Cons
- not as long lasting as i wanted it to be
- does not glide. a bit hard to apply

Overall Thoughts
I am a bit disappointed!! i wanted to love this as i adore the gelpresso liners from Clio [i realised i havent done a review but i will soon ok??] but it does not work anywhere as well as those. This is hard to apply and it does not last on my waterline. The gelpresso liners range needs a pure black pencil. Currently they only have a black pencil with sparkles. That glides on and is smudge proof. Though i just purchased this, i have stopped using it T-T Hope they improve the formula or release an all black gelpresso liner.

Overall Thoughts
I absolutely love these lip liners! The dark plum in 272 has been my go to shade almost daily at the moment and since these pencils are so small, they are so easy to cart around! I’ll definetely be buyin more shades!
