I know, I’m late. This new product I’m reviewing has been impressing one beauty blogger after the other. I bought this last April during my Hong Kong Trip but I only decided to open it last week. I have a tooon of unopened makeup items because I have too much makeup and I can’t finish them all. :( Anyway I finally decided to try out it out last week when I was looking for something new product to try. I find the greatest pleasure in trying out new cosmetics! :)
I was really excited when I found out that K-Palette released a pencil version of their liquid liner because the K-palette liquid liner has always been a star in my makeup kit. The K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eye Pencil is a retractable eyeliner pencil that that comes in 2 shades: super black and deep brown. I’ve always been a fan of black eyeliners so I chose to purchase this in super black.
What I love:
I love that this eyeliner is retractable. I don’t have to deal with having to bring a sharpener in my kit to sharpen it or worrying that it will run out when I choose not to bring a sharpener in my kit. The bottom-line is that this pencil is super convenient to bring around. It’s very creamy and does not tug on my eyelids. The skin around our eyes is very delicate so it’s important to find products that apply easily and that doesn’t irritate our eyes. It’s so soft and creamy that it is highly recommended to only reveal 2mm worth of the pencil when applying it because it can break easily. The shade is also very opaque. I can say that it IS a true black. One swipe on your lids does the job well. After a couple of uses, the tip of the pencil can be sharp enough to create flicks. I also observed that it didn’t budge when I tried to rub the swatch on my hand.
the flicks i made with the pencil
after exposing it to running water.. I rubbed the swatches and they did not budge
What I noticed:
I don’t really have oily lids but I noticed that it started to smudge and transfer to my lids after a few hours of wearing it when I applied it on my bare lids. This has been a problem of mine with quite a number of eye pencils so I already know what to do in order to make eyeliner stay on my lids. I just apply a primer and make sure that it dries and then I apply powder on my lids to make sure the primer stay put. After doing this, I found that the K-Palette eye pencil stayed on my lids all throughout the day without budging. I think that the pigment transfers easily onto the lids because it’s sooo creamy.
The K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eye Pencil is a pencil that really performs well. It’s everything that a superb eyeliner pencil is supposed to be. However, If I had to choose only one between the K-Palette eye pencil and the K-Palette liquid eyeliner, I’d probably go for the liquid eyeliner. The liquid liner is much more precise, and stays on longer. I think the pencil is useful, still because it can be used for tight-lining which is something the liquid liner can’t do. It can also be applied on the water line (just make sure you set it with powder). It costs PHP705 in the Beauty Bar. It’s a bit more expensive than drugstore products and is almost half the price of high end pencils. Overall, this pencil is fabulous and does the job of lining the eyes, tight-lining, and lining the waterline.
That’s it for now! What have you tried from K-Palette? I would love to hear about your experiences with K-Palette’s products! :) Comment below and do share. <3
