K-Palette Sweet as Chocolate Range ReviewWednesday, October 09, 2013
K-Palette is a highly popular Japanese Makeup brand best known for its long-lasting and ward-winning range of "1 Day Tattoo" eye cosmetics.
Even my press release is so PRETTY!
Unfortunately I was away during the launch of "Sweet as Chocolate" - the Fall Trend of 2013 as it takes a peek into the world of brown eyeliners to delve into the wonders of the multitude looks if can create. While its not as intense and striking as its black counterpart, brown as the magical ability to attract looks like no other. And Im loving the brown and pink look!
As K-Palette had kindly sent me several items for a review, I do like the product range so much that I'll be doing a quick introduction on each item before showing you my favorite from this collection.
24 Hour Real Lasting 2-Way Eyeliner Liner
This waterproof eyebrow liner is made of just the right amount of translucence such that the colour is deep enough to conceal the sparse areas of your eyebrows but not too dark that it gives a severe and unforgiving tone. If you require a darker tone, just go over the same area twice or more.
First Impressions : I was apprehensive to use liquid on my eyebrows as Im rather clumsy and have always been using eyebrow pencils my whole makeup life! However, I found it to be very fine and as it was in a shade of brown, the lines that was created is not harsh but rather 'soft'. I like the powder part too as its blends into my sparse areas with ease.
Extremely fine lines and subtle color
There are two sides to one pen - Liquid and Powder
K-Palette Zero Kuma Cover Control Concealer
Say goodbye to Dark Circles, Skin Discoloration and Fine Lines! K-Palette Zero Kuma Cover Control Concealer works to hide undereye dark circles, skin discoloration and fine lies naturally and flawlessly. After applying, your eyes will instantly look more awake!
This long-lasting, lightweight eye concealer is also formulated with beauty serum to care for your sensitive eye areas while concealing your eye imperfections. Available in 3 shades.
This has one of the CUTEST packaging ever!
Best suited to conceal dark eye circles
First Impressions : I love the cute Kuma bear on the packaging so much, I was reluctant to cut the packaging coz I wanted to just admire it non-stop lololol. It comes in a convenient tube and the liquid is thick, yet spreads easily on skin, A little goes a long way so do not use too much but try to build up coverage as you go along.
1-Day lash Perm Mascara
Introduction of the acrylates polymer, a curl keep polymer that enables eyelashes to curl instantly, with a single stroke. The polymer also reinforces the durability of the curl, keeping the curl effect long lasting throughout the day.
Another key ingredient found in the 1DAY LASH PERM is pullulan, which coats each and every lash. The addition of this ingredient defines the lashes by making them thick and volumised, creating the gorgeous eyes every woman desires.
I've reviewed this Here and Here and it has consistently been one of my top used mascaras for its easy to remove with water formula.
First Impressions : The Japanese makes no excuses for their lovely packaging and their comprehensive instructions and ingredient list. The brush is thick and fat which means one thing - VOLUME, VOLUME, and more VOLUME! The mascara wand feels comfortable even when Im trying to coat my lower lashes.

K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
Rated consistently as one of the top three selling eyeliners in Japan with 1 billion pieces sold since its inception in the market 3 years ago. This eyeliner gives guaranteed results in its ability to withstand melting humidity and punishing dryness of our air-conditioned interiors. Its magic lies in its patented micro-fibre soft brush application which ensures that the liquid eyeliner does not drip messily or draw heavily on your eyelids. Instead, the polymers within the eyeliner ensure lasting hold while superb control is achieved in the eyeliner’s agility, thereby giving an eyelin effect that is dramatic yet simple to achieve for daily users. The eyeliner is made of a unique conditioning formula consisting of sage essence, pantenol and chamomile essence, and would not irritate even the most sensitive eyes. Remove the eyeliner easily with any oil-free makeup remover.
First Impressions : This liquid liner is extremely fine and soft and if you want a very natural brown liner, this is definitely it. Once again its smudge-proof and it produces a realistic soft look that is both alluring and natural.
Here below is a comparison of the Liquid and Pencil liner.
Can you see the difference although they are both Brown?
My Favorite Product + Short Tutorial
Overall Review : Although I love most of the items in this collection, I really grown to LOVE my new K-Palette Lasting 2-Way Eyebrow pen! Its so easy to draw it on my eyebrows and I have gotten compliments on how it looks like it's embroidered on! The color is also suitable for my brown hair, as it is not as harsh as black eyebrow pencils.
I have rather thin eyebrows (Which I abhor!) and I like to have them threaded monthly for easy maintenance. I have some sparse areas so I like how this eyebrow pen gives definition, yet maintaining a soft feel.
I would normally use the Liquid pen side to draw and outline my brows, following the Powder side to fill in the front and then blend it with a small eyebrow brush for a even softer look.
The end result
Thanks everyone for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed the review!
Did I tempt you to go get some chocolate too? LOLOLOL
Maybe you can go get the makeup instead since its fat-free kekekekeke!
Am going to do a short post on my favorite makeup items soon!
Take care everyone ~ xoxo
