Makeup Review: K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner (01 Black)

If there's anything that is a totally must-have item in my makeup bag, it would totally be eyeliner.
I'm totally in love with my old liquid eyeliner from Nichido because it's so pigmented and it's perfect for all kinds of looks that I want to create. The problem is, it's not exactly waterproof and it transfers on my oily lids in humid weather.

I had the chance to pass by Beauty Bar in Lucky Chinatown and nabbed K-Palette's 1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner.

I am such a sucker for black pen-type liquid eyeliners that promise to last for a whole day. This costed me a fortune, about Php895 ($20.45). My money is all gone, but I guess it was worth this baby.

The packaging in itself was really nice, something like a paper bag with the eye liner snugly packed in the middle. It was very shiny and it had a lot of Japanese written on it.

The back of the box has a huge sticker pasted on the plastic packaging. My guess is that it's the English translation of what's originally written on the back and I'm very thankful for whoever thought of this because it's totally helpful to people who can't read or understand Japanese. (Like me.)

It's a nice and sleek-looking pen type eyeliner with silver print on it. It feels lightweight, kind of like a ballpoint pen.

So just pop the cap off to reveal the nice and thin brush inside. This eye liner is a brush-type eyeliner with nylon strands to apply the formula on your skin. It's pretty much thin and the only flaw I see in this is that when you apply it a little harder on your skin, the brush sort of loses its fine-tip shape. I usually need to apply a few lines on my hand to get it back to its original shape.

So here is a swatch on my arm. As you can see, it's well-pigmented and the formula holds nicely on my skin. One stroke is all I needed. When the formula runs out a little, I just shake it up and it's good to go.

After holding it under running water for a full minute, most of the eye liner didn't budge. It's still intact, but a few cracks start to appear in the thinner lines.

After a good rubbing, the eye liner faded considerably. There were a few dark shadows but it still held on to my skin.

After a wipe of makeup remover, most of it was gone.

I tried wearing this outside in the gut-melting weather here in Manila, and it didn't last for a whole day like it promised. It stays on about 6-7 hours max. I recommend that you use an eyelid primer or a liner sealer before using this to help it last longer. :)

I personally recommend this to beginners when it comes to makeup because it's light and easy to use, perfect for creating thin lines and buildable to create dramatic looks. For oily lids, though, this I do not recommend.

  • Very easy to use
  • Thin brush with good formula
  • Holds well in water
  • Easily removed by soap and water 


  • Does not last the whole day
  • Transfers on my oily lids
  • Pricey


Quality: 3/5
Price: 2/5 
Packaging: 4/5

Overall: 3/5
I can't say I'm not disappointed in this product, but overall, it still worked for me. I'm thinking twice about repurchasing this eye liner, because it wasn't very promising and it's damn expensive.

On a side note, I reached a blog milestone!
