I got a really good deal today and I am over the moon! The bran “K-Palette” is one that is relatively expensive, even for a drugstore brand. The prices are really up there, but the quality is amazing across the board. I got their lucky bag/fukubukuro today and there are a really good number of products in there for a very fair price.
¥2160 for the lucky bag and ¥500 for the pencil.
Packaging: The pencil comes in a dual-ended, black packaging with pencil at one end and the smudger on the other; both have a protective cap. It also comes with a sharpener that can be used on this pencil and a slot for a jumbo pencil.
My Experience with K-Palette Lasting Eyeliner in 02 Grey:
I got their mascara with a mini cleansing oil, eye pencil, a blush-highlight-contour palette, an eyeliner with a sharpener, and a lip balm with SPF. Today’s review is on their eye pencil. This pencil is in the shade “02 Grey” and I have already reviewed the one in “01 Black.” Let’s get on with further details.
Shade: This shade is an incredibly cool-toned grey. It has a blue undertone. There is no way to not look like a zombie if you use this as a regular liner on your upper lash line. So, I wouldn’t recommend it for the upper lash line at all. On the lower lash line though, it looks very different and edgy. I can get it to last a good amount of time even on my watery lower lash line. Smudging it out with the smudger is convenient and easy.
Formula: The formula is in between stiff and creamy. It does not glide on as smooth as butter, but still very usable and easy to work with. If you smudge it out with the smudger, it sets to a waterproof, budge-proof finish.
Sharpener: I like that they included a good, usable sharpener with this. It has slots for this pencil and a pencil much thicker. I can use that with my other jumbo lip pencils.
Lasting Power: I do notice a bit of smudging after about 6 hours, which is better than the black shade actually.
Pros of K-Palette Lasting Eyeliner in 02 Grey:
- Comes with a sharpener, comes with a smudger tip.
- Sleek and compact.
Cons of K-Palette Lasting Eyeliner in 02 Grey:
- Might need touching up during the course of the day.
- The shade is a bit too ashy grey, not everyone will be a fan.
