Review | Clio Professional Gel Liner & Eyebrow Pot in 1 Black

An eyebrow powder stacked atop a gel eyeliner, here’s a handy 2-in-1 product to help you achieve defined eyes.

When I first saw my press sample of this product, I was impressed that it also included a dual-ended brush designed to work with the individual products. The tool comprises an angled brush tip on one end and a tapered brush tip on the other. They feel like synthetic bristles.

The angled tip easily deposits the brow powder onto my brows and works fairly well. However, it splays after some time. The other brush tip has a smooth texture that works excellently with the gel liner (as well as those from other brands). I like its size and how it picks up product, its edges gliding easily along the lash lines.

The gel liner is somewhat nondescript. It’s a soft black that’s certainly functional but it could be inkier, in my opinion. It does go on quite smoothly and layers well for a deeper tone. However, like many gel liners, it can cake and crack if layered over once set. Its lasting power is so-so but on the upside, it can be easily removed with a water-based cleanser like Mandom Cleansing Express (now rebranded and renamed Bifesta).

I like the brow powder a lot – the soft greyed brown shade goes well with my hair and will suit people with dark-coloured tresses. Light strokes impart a natural brow look and the powder also layers nicely over brow pens and pencils to define brows.

In Singapore, this product retails at S$27.90 and is exclusively available at Watsons.

    I think that’s a great idea – definitely something I’d travel with.

      Hi Sam,

      It’s a clever idea. I do wish the gel liner were blacker, though.
