24H K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Eyeliner Review

Hello everyone! I am in a very good mood today, as I have finally gotten my new wonderful Macbook Pro into fully functional mode (read: installed Microsoft Office and Adobe Photoshop), and so I thought it was about time for me to update my blog!

So recently my third eyeliner pen ran out and I was in dire need of a new one to use. I mean I didn't want to go all the way to Korea just to get my fix (addict much?) or have one shipped and face humongous Customs charges. Thankfully, Beauty Bar started having the 24H K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Eyeliner in their stores.

It took me awhile to find some in stock, I had to wait 2 weeks for the nearest branch to have one in SUPER BLACK. Its also available in DARK BROWN. If you read my blog, you'll know how OBSESSED I am with eyeliners. I cannot leave home without a line across the lid!

This specific eyeliner has been touted by many bloggers are their HG eyeliner. K-Palette is a make-up brand from Japan. I know a lot of reviews have been made here in the Philippines ever since this came out, but here are my thoughts if this IS really a 1-DAY tattoo:

What K-Palette says:
This quick drying waterproof liquid eyeliner comes with a patented micro-fiber fine brush tip for superb control and ease in drawing. High water resistant polymer creates long lasting and non-smudge eyeliner that withstands water, sweat and skin sebum.
 Holy grail eyeliner of make up gurus and top selling eyeliner in Japan!

The eyeliner's pen feels like the CLIO's Kill Black: has a felt-tip texture and the pen is very easy to hold. But the brush is a bit soft, those who aren't used to pen liners might have a harder time controlling it.

Since the eyeliner is being re-distributed by Beauty Bar, it thankfully has English instructions at the back:
1. Shake the pen a few times with the tip facing down before use for a more vivid color.
2. Keep cap tightly closed after use to prevent the brush from contamination and drying.
3. Insert brush into the center of the cap when recapping. Denting it against the cap may cause the brush to lose its unique shape.
4. Leaving the pen in an upright position for a long period of time may cause the color to become lighter. Leave the pen on its side or with the tip facing downwards.
5. Use soap and water to remove. NO eye make up remover needed!
6. Not for inner eye lining.
7. In the even of an allergic reaction, stop using immediately.
I highlighted numbers 1 and 7 because these are the most important instructions for me. 

Remember to shake the pen vigorously and more than ten times if you want VIVID color to come out. I have to say I was initially disappointed with the eyeliner at first because I thought this was the darkest it could be. I mean it said SUPER BLACK, so I was expecting it to be darker. 

But the problem can be solved by more shaking! Now I'm definitely satisfied with the shade of black that comes out of the pen.

I love how quickly the eyeliner gets removed by just water! No need for doses of eye make-up remover just to get all the product out.

Despite being removable by mere water, the eyeliner stays true to its promise: it holds on for ONE DAY! I even tried sleeping with it (do not do this, I just did it to test if it does hold on), and it didn't come off.

NOTE: This shade was the initial one that came out because I didn't shake the pen enough. Just shake more and it gets darker!

I also love the fact that the eyeliner was fast drying. No need to keep your eyes closed for sometime after you apply. When you also make mistakes, you can easily remove it by using a cotton bud.

I do have super oily lids and it did not deter the product from lightening up during the day. I am so pleased with this purchase! Its a very nice alternative to the CLIO Kill Black (which still remains to be my HG), and I will be definitely buying one again if I run out.

The 24H K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Eyeliner in Super Black is available in any Beauty Bar branch all over Metro Manila for only P895.
