I hope everyone is having a good week! If you follow me on social media you might know that I’m doing a beauty contest/workshop with Beauty Meets, a Korean beauty media agency, and I had such a long night yesterday learning about how to better film YouTube videos and editing and such. It was so good but also very overwhelming. Hahaha. Anyway, I just wanted to share what’s been going on with you guys before I started this post 🙂
So, I’m reviewing the Clio Pro Layering Eye Palette. There are three different color palettes to choose from, 01 Originality, 02 Handcraft, and the newest release this month 03 Softish. Originality is a variation of browns, Handcarft is a mix of rosy browns and muted pinks, and Softish is a pink-coral colorway. I bought the second one, Handcraft, at a Watsons because it was on sale. I kinda of wish I saw the new one before I got the one I got though just because it was new hahaha. Each palette comes with 10 shades varying from matte and shimmer. The one I have has 4 shimmery shades and the rest are matte. The case is quite slim so it doesn’t take up too much space.
I’m going to speak for the Originality Palette as I review the Handcraft one because they were released together, but as for Softish because it’s newer I don’t think I should assume that it is the same as two previous. The texture is a bit powdery, so applying eye primer beforehand is recommended. The pigmentation is OK, but not great. Especially the matte colors are really hard to get the opacity I want. I have to layer a couple times to get good color payoff. Blendability is average, it’s probably due to the light pigmentation. I also feel that some of the color go on a bit patchy. The eye shadow worn alone doesn’t last very long. For ‘pro’ palette it does not live up to its name. I was a little disappointed because the colors in the palette is really pretty and very wearable for anyone but it performs on the eyes quite poorly. I’m not saying it’s unusable, I just expected better. Each palette costs 32,000KRW. TBH not worth it.
Here are the color profiles:
Elm-base color matte light beige
Sandstone- beige pink with gold shimmer undertones (very similar with Sandy beach)
Sandy beach- peach pink shimmer with slightly larger white glitter
Rose wood- matte reddish brown
Willow- matte warm cocoa
Limba-matte muted salmon
Ekki-matte light dusty rose
Malas- pink brown with micro shimmer
Wildness-dark brown pink with pink reflects
Granite- dark eggplant (looks a bit muddy)
I hope this was helpful! If you already have this palette or you still want to purchase this palette I do have a tutorial on my YouTube channel. You can skip to 2:50 to looks at the eye part 🙂
