K Palette Real Lasting Eyepencil Review

“Your eye looks different,”

says my friend J as one of the days that he saw me without an iota of makeup. It was during a tutorial shoot that I realized how truly, unabashedly different a face is with and sans makeup.

Eye liners are timelessly one of the few products that draw that unmistakable line between fresh and made up, an ally when it comes to rebelling against the sameness of the day. A line on the eyelid makes the eyes pop bigger – the one on the waterline is like a dark secret waiting to be kept forever.

I’ve taken to wearing eyeliners everyday now, more and more that days are unwittingly bland without them.  This is how I found an ally in the form of K Palette’s Real Lasting Eye Pencil.

To touch the segment of my life such as the eyeliner department is like fixing something that ain’t broke. For as long as I could remember, I knew how to apply eyeliners and had no problem with the elusive liquid eye pens and gel liners.

The concept of soft lead hadn’t come to me until it arrived to my lap.

Hooray for English instructions!

Epically known for their makeup, as I’ve seen are the Japanese --- whose technology often breaks through even the most impossible. I recall hearing about some strange innovation the other day --- maybe I shall tell you about it when we meet.

As for this product at hand, let it be my pleasure to spread the word on how it has added to my {makeup} life immensely:

Somebody forgot to caption this photo :D

The Pros:

  • No tugging. Not only products that do tug contribute to a jagged line, the tugs are scary and they might add to the “wrinkling” process of the eyelids.  K Palette glides on ever so smoothly.
  • Waterproof. I tried to wash away the swatch I had on my hand {it was a work morning after all} and it took me a couple of minutes to fully remove it. It does come off easily with my favorite shu uemura cleansing oil though.
  • Does not smudge. I am not the type to apply eyeliner under the eyes but on the day I first tried this, I tried it on my lower lashlines and thankfully, I didn’t look like a raccoon by end of the day. It’s sweat-proof, too! Yay! 
  • I can create a wing tip. Love love! Though if you want a more defined wing tip, you can always go back to liquid and gel liners.
  • Pigmented. As opposed to the normal pencil liners, this one is thick at one swipe. If you’re looking to make a thin line, this is not the product to go to.
  • No worrying. if I leave the cap open since it’s soft lead. Plus it’s great for smudging and for creating smokey eyes.
  • Locally available. K Palette’s Real Lasting Eye Pencil in Deep Brown is available at all Beauty Bar branches for Php 795.

Thicken as desired.

The Cons:

  • I really can’t think of any.

K Palette Real Lasting Eye Pencil is available at all Beauty Bar branches in Deep Brown and Black.
