Etude House Play 101 Pencil review


I got my hands on two of these new Etude House 101 pencils from Jolse and i bet a lot of people are interested in them so here's a review!~ 


As you can see, i got the shades #15 (Glossy) and #18 (Matte).
 Overall there are 5 different textures: Creamy, matte, glossy, shimmering and glitter. A plus: both are twist up eyeliners and have sharpeners attached!


I don't know how that hole on the orange one got there ??


Swatches~ 


The glossy one:
 works well as an eyeliner, not so well as a shadow
☆ it is indeed "glossy" so it's easier to smudge
 builds up in crease which is why i wouldn't recommend it as an eyeshadow although that's the way i prefer to wear it and i think it looks the best that way. I guess it's the glossy formula?
 i wouldn't call it a waterproof one. It doesn't smudge all over the place but it does "disappear" over time
☆ does work as a blush, not so much as a lipstick - it's sheer and clings to dryness
☆ doesn't stay in waterline


The matte one:
 more waterproof and stays better than the glossy finish
 doesn't build up in the crease
 harder to smudge and it can look a bit cakey if you layer it too much
☆ doesn't stay in waterline

Waterproof test!

Comparing both of them to CLIO's gelpresso waterproof pencil gel liner
After
I did put water on them and then smudged. Of course they didn't run down like a mascara would when coming in contact with water but after rubbing them, glossy eyeliner clearly disappeared the most.

OVERALL

The colour range is definitely one of the biggest pros + they have sharpeners which is convenient. Downside? They won't stay in waterline.

After all, i'd still suggest getting CLIO's gel liners. They might be a bit more expensive but they are really good! (if you ever order from gmarket, you can get a 1+1 deal for 13$ which means it's basically the same prince as Etude House one's)

Your thoughts? Have you tried other textures and would you suggest them?
