Review : Holika Holika Jewel Light Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

February 06, 2013

Hello~! You guys must have known that my favorite Korean brand is, Holika Holika!! Although I praise this brand too much but my review will always be objective. I have used Holika Holika for quite a while and most of the products impress me.. I love eyeliners so much, more than eyeshadow lol 

So I got these Jewel Light Waterproof Eyeliner that I thought would give sparkling effect nicely on my eyes. Would it go well? Let's see!

It comes with 5 colors to choose from. Black, brown, green, purple, and peach. I was very excited to see peach liner because it can help brighten up my eyes if I put it on my under eye area :D 

The packaging is simple yet it has very long cap, so you can grip it nicely. As usual, the font comes with rainbow hologram that turns out to be very pretty under light

The tip brush is in fact quite stiff but after a few usages it will be softer. But it cannot create a very sharp and thin line because of the density

Here's how it goes on my eyes = 

I was using no 1, the black, and as you can see that it's superrrr wateryyyy >:( 
You need to re-apply the eyeliner a few rounds before you can reach the good intensity, as if you keep lining your eyes when it's still wet, it will just be gone again. Make sure its dry first before you apply the next layer

it's also very dry so it cracks easily, as you can see from the swatch below

I would say that it does do its job by being waterproof, also smudgeproof, but it's not oilproof so in case you have oily eyelids, you still will get smudged eyeliner after a few hours

The color sure does last quite long, but I am still not recommending it because although it stays, it cracks, so what's the point?

Final Opinion =

Pros : 
  • Waterproof
  • Smudgeproof
  • Cheap

Cons : 
  • Doesn't come with too many color selections
  • Very watery when applied
  • Cracks easily
  • Not oil proof

Overall, I wasn't impressed with this eyeliner, AT ALL.. :( 

 I love Holika Holika and other products are usually great so IDK whats wrong with this one *sighs*
Well, I will still try other stuffs from them though XD

I got these from Rie Butik, online shop based in Indonesia. If you want to get affordable Korean cosmetics, there's no other place besides her :D
