Holika Holika Jewel-Light Waterproof Eyeliner - Review

I woke up one day and said to myself, I want to wear gold eyeshadow.  This is just so random and my head won't stop bugging me.  So I tried to look for gold eyeshadow or any palette with gold eyeshadow in it.

I asked from youtube what brand or palette I could use.  A lot of people replied to have the urban decay palette, but I was not sure that this sudden obsession will last long for me to invest on an urban decay palette.  A lot of people suggested few local brands, but I couldn't go to the mall to buy them... I was busy the past 2 months and stressed out because of the in-service exams.

Then I saw in BeautyMNL this eyeliner, and I said to myself, OMG! This is the one.  The perfect golden yellow I was craving for.

Anyways enough chitchat, let's head with the review. Oh by the way, I got the shade 09 - 18K Gold

It's a pencil type with gold cover and gold cap.  The cap fits snugly and doesn't fall off easily.  It looks elegant and because of its golden color, it's easy to find in your makeup bag/pouch vs the other eyeliners with the usual black color.

When you open the cap.. this is what it looks like

It smells like melted plastic.
It's gel-type consistency, very smooth when you swatch it.
Swatch here are the swatches

Application  This is the best coloured eyeliner I used so far! It was very smooth and glides easily into your eyelids, there's no tagging of your lid.  Whenever I compare this to the Etude House Play 101 pencil, which is very similar to it, Holika Holika beats the play 101 pencil by a mile.  It does not smudge when it sets.

It lasts all day and I didn't have any smudging.  But I experience fall-outs of the glitter.  By the end of the day, I some glitters on my face

Claims Claims to Draw slim to bold lines depending on your preference; long-lasting waterproof formula stays on without smudging, flaking, or smearing; highlights and defines the eye with a hint of shimmer and glitter

Well it really holds to its claim of no smudge, no flaking, nor smearing, and w/ glitter and shimmer.

Waterproof Test:

Duration of use 1 month
Pros Very smooth application, literally glides on your eyelids, waterproof, easy to remove with makeup remover, affordable: php 265
Cons Fall-outs of the glitters, you have to sharpen the pencil (Sorry I usually prefer the auto type wherein you just twist the bottom to get more product out.

Recommend? DEFINITELY!!!
