Back with another review!
Recently I've been into doing darker eye-make and the release of this product cannot be more timely for me.
Eye make up is very important as eyes are the windows to our soul.
I'm sure many girls are already familiar with the brand I'm going to share today:
K Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner in Waterproof Super Black [SGD $19.90/box]
Yes, that's their highly coveted eyeliner! I'm sure this product is the "holy grail" eyeliner of many ladies, right? Personally, I've tried my first K Palette eyeliner about 2 years ago and have been a big fan since then.
K Palette is constantly seeking to improve their widely popular eyeliner to satisfy the needs of their consumers. This time, they made improvements that all ladies look for in an eyeliner, namely:
- Longer-lasting power
- Faster drying after application to prevent panda eyes (SMUDGEPROOF!)
- Even higher resistance to water, sweat & sebum (WATERPROOF!)
- Ease of removal without straining the delicate skin around your eyes
- The signature super fine & soft, yet structured brush, that enables you to draw beautiful finish lines as well as barely visible lines at the roots of your eyelashes
- Addition of 3 types of beauty essences that helps to care for the delicate skin around your eye area during application (Hyaluronic acid Na, Water soluble collagen and Swertia Japonica essence)
I'm sure one the above mentioned are definitely qualities we look for when we purchase an eyeliner, yes? I definitely want an eyeliner that can last me the entire day without making me look like a rock star gone wrong!
My eye makeup above made use of K Palette's Real Lasting Eyeliner with the improved formula. I drew this on in the morning before I head out and took these pictures at the end of the long day out. As you can see, by the time I got home, it still looked as intense as ever; no smudging either! I do have to say that I don't have the tendency to rub my eyes though. I tried running my hand under the water after using the eyeliner to draw on my hand, showing that it held up to the waterproof claim well.
Looking at the magnified picture, you can see that there is no faltering of the eyeliner into the unsightly "network" on my skin. One of the most important thing for me when it comes to buying eyeliners is to check if it will falter; if it does, it will probably make a mess on your eyes and have little tiny streaks around the area you lined your eyes and can end up making your eye makeup look messy. Also, the formula dries fast, which I believe is one of the reasons why it does not falter as well - there is simply no time for it to wander about.
The brush is very fine - gentle on my eyes, smooth and thus very easy to manoeuvre around my eyes. When it comes to removing the make up, it was indeed a breeze; pressed my oil based make up remover on my eyes for about 5 seconds and one swipe did the job.
I do highly recommend everyone to give this eyeliner a try as it really performed very well for me. I always used gel liner when I want to do a more intense and longer lasting eye make up but I guess I've found an alternative now - much quicker in application too! I will rate this product a 9/10 as it performed well up to claims and expectations! Best of all, the price is very economical! We know how Japanese products tend to have their prices marked up a lot when the are being exported, right? K Palette still keeps their prices low, almost the same price as when you purchase in Japan! [I think the price in Japan is around $19~$20!]
The new improved formula will hit the stores this March, go grab a box and try it for yourself!
