Quick Review: The Clio Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow

There are many roads that lead to the best, most polished brows, but one sure-fire technique is using at least two layers of product. The base would usually act as a light outline of the brows, while the second layer would create more depth and texture. You can mix and match different formulas but a pencil (or pen) + mascara combo is usually a winner!

Recently, I've been liking the Clio Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow (P750 at Althea) since it's so convenient to use. There are two products in one pen so I don't have to rummage through my table - sounds like a minor thing but if you've seen my makeup desk, it is chaos personified. Anyway! This Clio product is also pretty fast to work with as the liquid pen is like a jumbo marker while the mascara coats brow hairs sufficiently in one or two passes without making a mess. I like how it looks on me as it delivers soft, Korean drama star brows.

The shade I have is Earth Brown - a bit blonde for my current hair color but honestly, that's just me nitpicking. The pen is a grayish shadow which I wish was more pigmented. I also find that it doesn't adhere as well as I'd like on foundation-ed brows but again, I find the issues to be minor as it does what it's supposed to do in two layers and pretty much stays on all day.

I didn't like the mascara at first as the wand was gunky out of the tube. When I apply it on my brows though, it does such a good job giving me the coverage + pigmentation I need! Actually, when I'm in a rush, I don't even have to bother with the pen; I apply the brow mascara directly and I get great shading as well as texture. This is my 1-minute kilay go-to (literally) when I need to go and don't have time to put anything else on my face.

The mascara and pen both have great staying power on me. Not at tattoo-like levels, obvs, but I've worn these to tennis and I would still have kilay left after sweating like crazy!

Overall, I recommend the Clio Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow to anybody who wants natural-looking yet polished brows that stay on. ^_^ You know, I've been trying out some Clio products lately from Althea and I wish they never left the PH. Remember when Clio used to be in Watsons? Sayang! I hope the brand comes back again someday.
