The finer liner

I often get scoffed at for my uber skinny practically-not-there eyelining habit. While I am happy to be the only follower of this "trend" that I know, I am ever thankful to those Japanese brands that allow me make my fine line doodles as they are nearly impossible to get hold of in London. Among the many liners that I have tried, K-Palette are up there with my star products.

K-Palette Real Lasting Liner 24hr Liners.
If you have not tried the K-Palette eyeliners before then you do not know what you are missing. I have both the original version (above, black) and the micro version (above in blue).

Both these K-Palette liners are brush pen type liners which is my personally preference as they glide on effortlessly and give me more control over the application. They resemble Japanese calligraphy pens to me.

There is much to about these liners:
Both pens provide a consistent deep black line.
The claim is that these liners will hold fast for 24hrs. I cannot say that I have put this to the test but I can vouch that both pens have extreme lasting power and last well over 14 hours for me.
Both are waterproof.
The micro liner is super good at providing a skinny line and is currently my FINER LINER of choice.
Both liners last a long long time. They just go on and on for entire essays of eyelining duties. I am quite certain that I will have to chuck these before they die purely because of hygiene reasons.

There are very few negatives about the K-Palette liners for me. The main one will be that they are only available on line for us Londoners. However, you can get them from Ichibankao and Mihoko.

  1. I love pen liners! Thanks for the review!

  2. I'm trying to wean myself off Japanese products as I never get to go there but I may have to ask my friends to bring me back one of these.

  3. Wow, the liners look extremely fine! Must be a joy to use. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Haha at the skiny non existent liner 'trend' I love Japanese liners, my one is still going!

  5. They are so fine...I think I definitely need these in my life!! :) No idea why more UK brands don't make liners this skinny xxx

  6. I can't for the life of me draw a super thin line. I've tried Dollywink and the Lorac pen liner but I still draw thick lines!
    I should try the K-Palette liners as they look somewhat thinner.

  7. Thank goodness! finally i dun feel left out! i have this n love till max... i agree it somehow reminds me of the jap or chinese kind of calligraphy pens...

  8. the 24hr hours one doesn't work as well for me, perhaps because i got oily lids :( there are loads of different formulas about - i really want to try the new fiberwig one!

  9. they are available at www.beautycarousel.com too!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
