Review: K-palette Liquid Eyeliner

Posted on 11-07-2012 | Tags: , , ,

So recently I was deliberating between purchasing the K-palette Liquid Eyeliner and Dolly Wink’s iconic liner. In the end, because I watched an episode of Tried & Tested by the same people that created Xiaxue’s Guide to Life, I ended up taking the lesser-known option of the K-palette eyeliner because it passed ALL the tests:

Of course I did further research; since T&T didn’t compare it to the Dolly Wink, I went to find comparisons. Youtubers seemed to say that the two liners are practically the same when it comes to consistency and the applicator. The K-palette was a dollar or so cheaper than Dolly Wink, I bought mine at around 15 or 16 dollars online.

The usual K-palette liner has a red packaging, but the limited edition pink one was actually cheaper, so I purchased that. They are different shades of black, how that works, I don’t know. But I can vouch for the pink one as being VERY black. I heard from other reviews that the red liner is slightly less opaque, but yeah. Anyway I bought the pink one because it was cheaper and I prefer the pink anyway LOL. It came with a free CD of someone that I don’t know. If anyone I know irl is a fan, I’ll give you the CD hahaha.

Though the actual pen packaging isn’t as nice as the Dolly Wink one, I don’t really have much of an issue with that. It looks okay. Standard.

The pen tip is fantastic. Honestly the best I have used so far, and I’ve tried many liquid liners before. It provides for perfect control, accurate lines and it allows you you control the thickness of your lines wonderfully.

What I really like about it is that it doesn’t smudge- and if it does, it’s barely noticeable. When it comes into contact with water and friction it just dissipates; so it not only stays on but it comes off easily when you want it to. I wouldn’t recommend it for that smokey, smudged look though. But then again, if you’re using a liquid liner, you aren’t usually aiming for that kind of look anyway. It provides a very clean, crisp line.

When it comes to staying power, the liner really doesn’t disappoint. In the picture of me above, excuse the weird expression LOOOL (taken by Calene :D), it has been around 6ish hours since application of the liner. It hasn’t smudged despite my eyes being a little teary due to my ongoing dust-mite allergies. Also, the application of the liner was almost effortless, it’s so easy to control. I used to use an eyeliner with a really flexible tip which was way too thin to create a thicker look like this. Even if you only want a thin, barely noticeable line, the liner works wonderfully. All you have to do is angle the pen the way you want.

Overall, I don’t think I can go back to other eyeliners now, hahaha. Highly recommended.
