I was given the latest series of K-Palette's, the 1 Day Magic series and I'm ready to give my verdict after using it the past month!
At the launch, we were taught by a Japanese makeup artist on how to create a big-eyed and dolly look using these products. Here's a pic on how Japanese use these items to change their look pretty dramatically >.< I used the items according to this page and this is how I turned out, at the end of the post >.<
Now on to the review!
The mascara is double-ended; one end is the fibres and one end is the mascara. I always use fibre mascaras but the fibres are already inside the mascaras, and not seperated and in loose form like this. This mascara is able to transform the pathetic, thin and sparse lashes of mine into natural looking falsies (and I'm not even exaggerating!) when layered on. The thing about this mascara is that I personally feel that the loose fibre is lighter than those fibre that comes in white liquid tubes, so it doesn't feel heavy despite building the layers. I took 2 times of mascara and 1 time of fibers to attain this result. However, I add an extra step to comb the lashes with an eyebrow comb after each layer so it doesn't clump, as I predicted that it will since its layering. If you only want a natural look, do only use the mascara (and maybe a layer of fibre) as it is waterproof so it holds curls well too!
I once owned their tattoo eyeliner and I find this eyeliner more suitable for me. The tattoo eyeliner left a blue stain on my eyelids (honestly I hated it) though being extremely long-lasting. Consistent with their previous liners, the tip is super fine and is of a good rigidity to draw a smooth and intense line without breaks. This is long-lasting yet it doesn't stain! Woohoo! I think the price is also reasonable considering the quality of this product. Definitely able to withstand the humidity in Singapore!
I was also given this eyelid glue which can be used to create eyelid creases or as a falsie glue. I already have double eyelids so I tried this as a falsie glue instead. I feel that it lasts about 4 hours before the inner end of it started to come slightly loose. I think it'll work better as an eyelid glue even though I never tried. Maybe I should try to make my eyelids higher... maybe. Its a clear liquid (not white) so it looked very natural :)
Here's a before > after! (excuse the cui face > derp face haha)
Its been awhile since I used Japanese cosmetics (all the Korean rage now) and I'm thankful to be able
to try this set out. They're all so useful and affordable, I would recommend this to anyone, especially beginners because they're easy to use and gives a great result.
It's already launched in Watsons and more so do check them out!
