About a month ago, I received a few items from my favorite eyeliner and eyebrow brand, K-Palette! I have been devoted to their liquid eyeliner and eyebrow products for the better part of two years—even when I try other brands and formulas, K-Palette always wins. Thank you Ms. Cheryl for such a generous gift!
I mentioned the liquid eyeliner, but here’s something I never personally tried from the brand: 1Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eye Pencil* (Php 750) which comes in Super Black and Deep Brown.
This retractable pencil with rich pigmentation is touted as having a long-lasting waterproof and smudgeproof formula—which, we all know what that means in this humidity—infused with beauty essences like hyaluronic acid (great for moisturizing), water soluble collagen, and Swertia Japonica extract.
The pencil itself is quite big, so if you want a more precise line, try drawing from the side, as opposed to the actual tip. I personally still get a lot more precision from the liquid variant, but these are great for smudging along the outer corner for definition. I used it here, for tightlining… which makes this kind of a pointless photo, because you won’t even see it:
Next, I was sent two of their mascaras: the 1Day Tattoo 24H Lash Perm Long Curl Mascara* (Php 895) and the 1Day Tattoo 24H Lash Perm Volume Curl Mascara* (Php 895). Both are new products to me and are only available in Black.
The Long Curl Mascara (red tube) is a film-type mascara that provides length and definition without smudging. Since it is a film-type mascara, it’s also easily removed with soap and warm water. The Volume Curl Mascara (purple tube) is also a film-type mascara that provides long-lasting voluminous curl without smudging.
I haven’t tried either mascara because I have too many tubes still open, but there are a couple of reviews online:
— K-Palette 1Day Lash Perm Long Curl Mascara (ca. 2012)
— K-Palette 1 Day Lash Perm Volume Curl Mascara
Like most K-Palette products, the mascaras are infused with beauty essences like Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Silk, Red Algae, and Swertia Herb.
I’ve waxed poetic about their eyebrow products and liquid eyeliner, but the first K-Palette product I actually tried was their concealer! I had no idea that the Zero Kuma Concealer* (Php 795) was even by K-Palette. (Much has changed, ahhh.) Today, I’ve got all of the shades, 01, 02, and 03.
The Zero Kuma Concealer is a lightweight and long-lasting concealer that hides dark circles and discoloration naturally and flawlessly. They can also be used as an eye primer, and it works pretty well for that. I like 02 if I want my eyeshadows to really pop, since it brightens my lid space.
Normally, the shade numbering goes from light to dark as the numbers go up. For Zero Kuma, it’s a little different.
01 is a “natural beige” and is used to conceal light dark circles. It has hydrating beauty essences like hyaluronic acid, rose water, and water soluble collagen. 02 is a “yellow beige” used to brighten very dark circles. It has brightening ingredients like prune extract and Chamomila Recutita Extract. Lastly, 03 is an “orange beige,” and it is used to conceal dark circles caused by poor blood circulation. It includes like Silver Birch Leaves Extract and amino acids to improve blood circulation on the under eyes.
The only shade I’ve tried prior was 02 and I loved it a lot. I still have my old tube and I thought it would be a bit fun to compare it with a brand new one.
The orange discoloration on the old tube seems to be the product that’s been exposed to air. Ultimately, the concealer performs just as well, with the old product coming on just a tiny bit thicker than the new product:
The shade is the same, despite what the tube seems to show.
Have you tried K-Palette? 🙂 Let me know which products you’d like me to get a bit more in-depth on (if any).
Also, I used my Canon S100 for these photos and ack, I really do prefer a DSLR at the end of the day. I’ve been going back and forth between buying a new compact camera (I’ve got my eye set on a Sony RX100) or a better lens for my DSLR.
