Times are long past when girls literally used tape to create double eyelids. These days, we have flexible and almost invisible glues to create bigger eyes and that deep crease! K-Palette Philippines recently launched one of the brand's best-selling products in Japan: the Real Lasting Mega Cute Double Eyelid Tape and Glue (both P695 at Beauty Bar).
What's the difference between the Orange (tape type) and Pink (glue type)? The Orange tape is applied all over the lid to create a deeper-looking lid. It has some shimmer to it and can even be used as an eyeshadow primer as long as you're wearing it. The tape can even be worn by double-lidded girls who just want more definition on their eyes.
The Pink glue is for creating a more enhanced crease. It's meant to be applied right where the crease meets the lids, in one thin line. You get a white plastic wand to hold your skin in place while the glue is drying. Aside from faking that crease, the Pink glue can also be used as false lash glue.
Orange tape vs Pink glue
Both types are completely transparent when dry. They are also waterproof - for real! They didn't budge from my hand for almost two days until I peeled them off! They also truly glued the lids together when I tried them. I don't have a demo here as I haven't really studied the application; I also feel that I'm not the best subject for the demo, since my crease is quite obvious. I'll post pictures if ever I come across a monolid girl who needs an eye lift. ;)

I hope this information helps, even if I wasn't able to share a demo. The K-Palette packaging has some awesome tips you can use!
Oh, thought I'd share some photos of the event launch before I go. ;) The K-Palette team from Japan visited the Philippines for the exlusive press and blogger event. Even the President, Mr Eiji Kinoshita, was there! Ms Rina Ogata, the K-Palette Makeup Artist, also shared her tipes and techniques when applying K-Palette products.
Bloggers got a chance DIY their press kits by wrapping them furoshiki-style as well as paint cherry blossom trees with makeshift brushes. Such a fun afternoon!

Mizuho Hakoyama, Marketing Head of K-Palette Japan, has such a cute eyeliner style here! It's just a small triangle that looks like one line when she opens her eyes. I'm going to try this one time!
