REVIEW : Holika-Holika's Jewel Light Waterproof Eyeliner

Hey-Ho! Today I'm going to review Holika-Holika's Jewel Light Waterproof Eyeliner(s). I read about them first randomly from Rini Cesilia's blog post HERE and HERE and she gave 5 out of 5!

Honestly I didn't need anymore eyeliners, especially pencil liners because I don't use them a lot, I used them daily for lining my waterline only. But there's one color that I want to purchase which was the "Ballerina Pink" #17, and I stumbled upon Holika-Holika's Gmarket page and found out that they have an event buy 3 for KRW 9.900. So I bought 2 more colors!


Originally retails for KRW 4.900 - it is considerably cheap and they have a lot of colors selection. Plus, Promise Phan from youtube recommends these as Make Up Forever eyeliners dupe.

The colors I bought are #3 Lapiz Lazuli (Navy blue with glitters), #15 Burgundy Janet (Dark brownish burgundy) and #17 Ballerina Pink (Baby pink - matte)


I say they're living up to their claims : water proof, long-lasting, pigmented color, and smudge resistant. Also, they're very creamy and really easy to apply! Sometimes the problem with creamier eye pencil is that it needs to be sharpen all the time, but it's not happening to these! I've been using "Ballerina Pink" for sometime now and I haven't even sharpened it yet! (Yes, these are not retractable, you have to sharpen them)

I've actually done a test for their smudge proof and water proof qualities, and I thought I have to make a quick video to show you guys. Let them sets for a minute or so and it really does stays!! (Even the glitters aren't going anywhere!). For the water resistant point, I agree they have better water resistant quality than other eyeliners I have, but still, especially the #3 Lapis Lazuli's glitters, some are washed away after a few sweeps. Most of the colors stays though!

As for the colors, they're very pigmented. The "Ballerina Pink" turns out to be pinker than I hope it would - and I like to use it for my lower water line to give that brighter and clearer eyes. Both #3 Lapis Lazuli and #15 Burgundy Janet looks like black/brown from a far and I think I'm really satisfied with my choice! I think both are able to give softer looks but still with an edge (?)

Overall, I'm giving these a 4.8 out of 5! These eyeliners are not 100% smudge free for me, as they transfer to my eye bags after a few hours of usage. Especially if I line my upper lid with these only! (like the swatch above - but it's almost never happen, I only use my pen liner to do that daily!) Still, they're very remarkable and I look forward on purchasing more colors and maybe some versatile colors like black or dark brown for an everyday wear! Or maybe I'll try more fun colors because they do have a huge color collection! 

Good job, Holika Holika! :)

    1. Usually Korean brands product have a production date, but these eyeliners didn't seems to have one printed on O_O could be on the plastic but I didn't have it anymore.. But pencil eyeliners could stay up to 3-5 years as long as you keep it clean and sharpen them! Hope that it helps! <3
