I always get asked, "so what's the best makeup brand for you?" As a makeup artist and beauty blogger, you can't just stick to one cosmetic brand. However, we can play favorites! And one of my favorite brands would be K-Palette. Imagine my excitement when they launched their eye liners in pencils that promises the same 24-hour wear as their cult-favorite liquid liners.

Smudge and water-proof, the newly launched 1-Day Tattoo Eyeliner Pencil from K-Palette is formulated to repel water, oil and sebum.


The retractable soft liner glides on easily, lessening the risk of tugging so much on the eyelid, which leads to irritated eyes. However, I find the texture to be too soft that it's kind of difficult to draw lines. I also find the lead to be too thick. It would've been easier if it was thinner as I prefer to wear my eyeliner thin and natural.
 

The K-Palette liner pencils are available in two shades: Super Black and Deep Brown.
 

I like that the brown shade is deep enough to mimic the effects of a black eyeliner on the eyes, without the harshness.


Here's a photo of my left eye wearing the 1-Day Tattoo Eye Pencils -- Super Black to define the upper lash line and Deep Brown to rim half of the lower lash line:
 
Wearing 1-Day Tattoo Pencil Liner without any mascara

The eyepencils are indeed very pigmented. Just one swipe and I got this fantastic intensity. I notice that the formula is very moist compared to other smudge- and water-proof liners I've tried before which makes it great for a softer liner look and perfect for achieving smoky eyes. One drawback though is that you need to wait a few minutes for the liner to dry before curling your lashes as the product might stick and transfer to your curler.

Wait about 3 minutes before curling your lashes or this might happen.

Below is my complete look for the day featuring K-Palette's Real Lasting 24H Tattoo Eyeliner Pencils. Other products used were Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in Petal, K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Eyebrow Liner in 02, Shu Uemura Lash Curler (no mascara) and Dior Lip Glow Balm.

See how my eyes look defined and awake with the K-Paletter pencils despite skipping the mascara!

The test swatches of K-Palette pencils on my wrist would not come off. Truly water-proof! It can only be removed by a makeup remover. 
 
I completed the look and left the house at around 9:00am for my workout and proceeded to my make-up appointment. I arrived back home at around 4:00pm and took a photo of my eyes to compare and see how long-lasting the pencils are. See how the K-Palette pencils did after a 7-hour test:


As you can see above, the upper lash line wasn't as intense as it was when I just applied the pencil liner. However, it still kept its place and shape. The liner on the lower lash line faded as well and smudged. I noticed this happened during my sweaty workout in Plana Forma. (We were faced with mirrors during the entire workout.)

How my eyes looked like after seven hours upon application of the K-Palette.
