today i want to hype about this eyeliner a little bit - it's the K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner, a liquid liner in pen form. it was this post from Akisa at Beauty Swatch which made me buy it. i found it on ebay and paid about 10€ (shipping included). it comes with a pair of false eyelashes, i think that's a promotion.
i have tried several pen liners before, but all of them had a fine felt tip. i liked them for being so easy to handle that they allowed even absolute beginners to draw an accurate, fine line. the weak point always was that after a certain time, the felt tip started to soften and would loose its precision. furthermore, the consistencies were often too liquidy or felt burning on my lids.
this liner is different, it has a real brush as a tip. the brush is very fine and firm with a precise point tip.
the consistency of the ink is watery with a medium opacity, for a deep warm black i need to go twice over the line. it doesn't feather out on your skin though, and the fine brush allows the most fine and delicate strokes i have ever experienced with an eyeliner (with such ease). it doesn't burn my eyes.
this liner claims to be waterproof with a staying power of 24h. it sets quickly to a satiny film and doesn't move or smudge at all. it doesn't give me the transfer effect despite my oily lids even when i don't wear any primer or eyeshadow to help it. i haven't tried to wear it over 24h, but i can really say that this liner will stay on as long as you want it to - the asian really do the best wp formulas. it's easily removed with my normal cleansing wipe or micellar lotion.
i only have it for about two weeks and can't say anything about how long it goes before it's used up or dried out, but according to Akisa's experiences, it will go strong for over 3 months. i am really positive about this as the cap closes really tightly, but if it's time to, i will definitely repurchase!!! i don't see any reason for the L'Oreal Super Liner anymore, which formerly was my favourite.
