After reading Kimberly Tia's review on K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner, I was convinced that this baby works magic! LOL. I was excited to spot this at Matsuwa although I wish they carry the pink version :/
Apparently, this is Japan's top selling eyeliner. The description on the back claimed that: This quick-drying liquid eyeliner has a special brush tip and high water resistant polymers, giving you superb control for creating remarkable smudge-resistant effects. The result: eyes become more defined and focused. It is a film type eyeliner. The water resistant coat polymer keeps fine eyelines 24 hours. You'll feel like "1 Day Tatoo!" Also, gentle for your eyelashes; containing camomile extracts and panthenol.
This is how the package looks like:
The pointy brush tip makes it so easy to apply the eyeliner. You can easily create a nice thin line or build a thick nice line for a more defined look.
Overall, I'm impressed with this eyeliner. Leave it up to the Japanese to think of great inventions!! I applied this in the morning and by evening time, it's still very much the same without any touch-up.
This is how it looks on me:
It's great for those who are going for the doll-eye or cat eye look. It will make your eye pop and stand out. And even look rounder and bigger in a sense. It's also great for those who have trouble lining your eyes perfectly. The design is very much similar to a pen. So imagine holding a pen (with very tight bristles) in your hand and drawing. It's much easier than regular eyeliner with soft bristles.
Initially, I was concern with how to take off the eyeliner at the end of the day without scrubbing and irritating the fragile eye areas. But it was actually easier than I thought. It is recommend to remove with warm water however, I didn't do that. I used Clinique Take A Day Off Makeup Remover and it was a very gentle process. No scrub, no rub, and no pain. phew~
Overall, I love it. Will definitely repurchase. Thanks Kimberly for this great recomendation!
I got mine at Mitsuwa for $16.99
You can get it online at Fabaocanada, Arivial, Beautymark
but the cheapest I've found is Akinaiblog
I've never bought anything from those websites so please do your own research before buying.
