K-Palette 1-Day Magic Liquid EyelinerI haven’t tried the original version of this so I can’t comment on differences or similarities. But the K-Palette team shared that they changed the tip of the pen to make it easier to control as well as to be able to put on thrice the thickness of the past liner in just one go. It is not quite as black when used thinly but when applied sideways, the bold black comes out. I like that it isn’t overly glossy as well. I personally find the 1-Day Magic Eyeliner easier to apply and maneuver on the lids compared to the Stila Waterproof 24/7 liner that tugs. Ive also been using the Koji Line Beat Eyeliner* and find that these two feel the same in terms of application except K-Palette is more black and pigmented — not to mention thicker in tip as compared to the 0.1mm tip of Line Beat. Also, K-Palette isn’t overly glossy as compared to the Koji Line Beat.

K-Palette 1 Day Magic Fiber MascaraAhhh, fiber mascara. I’ve never tried any mascara with fiber in it, but it promises added volume on the fake-lashes level. The mascara is double-ended with one side containing the black mascara itself, while the other end holds the fibers. It is a three-step process — which includes putting on the black mascara first (for the fibers to attach to), then applying the fibers thereafter, then coating on a layer of mascara again. That’s 1 layer. You can pile on as much as three layers to really get vo-vo-volume. Below, I did two layers. I love that the curl power is not sacrificed by the volume going on. This is where I have issues on every mascara I try. Some do hold a curl, but they don’t really give much length or volume. While others are very volumizing, but can’t possibly hold my curls. Impressed that K-Palette Fiber Mascara can do both really well. My only issue with the product is that when applying the mascara after I’ve coated on the fibers — some of the fiber bits stick on the black mascara wand which in turn, get into the mascara tube. I don’t really know the impact of that shelf-life wise but I’m afraid it may cause some clumping in the future? But overall, I really like the effect of the mascara on my sparse lashes except it does take quite some effort and time (as well as proper technique through practice!) to achieve as to not make a mess (like what I created the first time I used it LOL).

K-Palette 1 Day Magic 3D Face PaletteNow if you are drowning in blushes, higlighters and contour powders — there’s really nothing new in this face palette. Except for the fact that they’re all combined in this lightweight, miniature compact that’s travel-friendly — with a useful brush (that you don’t just throw out) to apply the shades with. I actually really like using the brush for applying the contour powder on my nose and underneath the cheekbones, because it’s dense enough to define both areas but really soft as well that it blends beautifully. The powders are also quite smooth and creamy (see how they almost meld on my skin above) albeit quite sheer upon first swipe – except the highlight shade that feels a bit drier and quite gritty because of the microshimmers. The palette includes a beautiful light peachy coral and light baby pink blush shades, an almost-coppery brown contour shade and a white glittery highlight shade. In this post, I used the coral blush on my cheeks, the contour underneath my cheekbones and sides of my face and the highlight shade on my nose bridge and underneath my eyes (on the aegyo sal a.k.a baggy part under the eyes).

Final LookAs for the Eyelid Glue, I wanted to post another entry on that altogether because it’d be my first time trying it out ever (!!!) so I didn’t include it here. Okay, so maybe it was more the fear of messing up and having to do my makeup all over again that actually pushed me to postpone trying it. Oh and yes, I tried doing a gradient lip (with my Dior Fluid Stick in Magique) and umm, let’s just not focus on that mess. LOL All in all, a solid set of products to add to the growing K-Palette family. I personally still love their eyebrow pen and am looking to purchase it soon (‘cos my brow gelcreme has sadly dried up already). The Fiber Mascara is a godsend to my sparse lashes, but I still have to figure out a way to apply it less messier than I do now. The 3D Face Palette looks uninteresting at first, but upon usage actually cuts down the blush application/highlighting/contouring process by a considerable amount of time. As well as the weight of your makeup kit by a pound or so! I didn’t think I needed this, but I’ve used it a few times already just because it’s easier to take along with me than three separate compacts. The Eyeliner, I don’t really have a lot to say about. I think it’s because they already have a good, solid well-loved eyeliner that I don’t think has any cons. But I guess if you love thicker lines, then this would be a good replacement as it’s the same non-smudge, waterproof formula. Oh, everything in the collection is waterproof, by the way! So you can go swimming with all this magic~ on. All K-Palette products are available in your friendly, neighborhood Beauty Bar outlets.
