A waterproof liner that won't quit: The K-Palette Real Lasting Eyepencil
K-Palette is most famous for its liquid eyeliner, but the brand actually released a pencil liner some three years back. I thought it was okay. I used the pencils for a while however I quietly went back to the liquid liner since it simply performed better across the board. Recently though, K-Palette has come out with a reformulated version of their automatic eyeliners. The verdict? It's better than the original and - I can't believe I'm saying this - arguably better than the liquid.
The K-Palette Real Lasting Eyepencil (P795) is a waterproof liner that is pigmented, buttery, and did I say waterproof? It has a satin finish that's opaque in one swipe. I've worn this to tennis and it barely fades on me (no rubbing of course) even though I've sweated buckets. Buckets. It adheres so well that it requires several passes for a micellar water makeup remover to take it off!
I've found that it doesn't smudge on me, but I need to mention that my lids never get particularly oily and I always keep it dry during the day. A person with very oily lids might get a different experience.
I love how this is so easy to apply. Most pencil liners with this level of pigmentation and staying power usually tugs at the lids and gets ~crusty~ since it dries on skin so quickly. But not this K-Palette penci l! It goes on so well even on top of eyeshadow. It also gives you just enough time to correct your line and clean up edges with the handy sponge tip. As for getting a smudgy look though, hmmm. It doesn't retain its emollience once swiped to allow you that luxury.
This pencil is creamy so take care to twist out only a small amount per swipe. If it's too long, it will break immediately and you would've wasted the product.
Compared to the liquid liner, the Eyepencil adheres to skin better, delivers deeper pigmentation, and stays on for longer. I've had this for 10 hours and it just, well, remained intact. The liquid would eventually dissolve at the corners around that time but the pencil fades only minimally.
Of course, I'd still recommend using the liquid if you like clean and crisp lines and absolutely zero tugging. As the pencil is wax-based, it will never glide on like a liquid (although it doesn't do too bad, IMHO, as it goes on smoothly).
Overall, I highly recommend the K-Palette Real Lasting Eyepencil to anybody who wants a waterproof eyeliner they can cry sweat, and live in without worrying about smudging. It's leagues away from the original and gives the best-selling liquid a run for its money! I've been picking it up more than the liquid! It has fast become my daily eyeliner just because it's so easy to use and I know I can rely on it.
What do you think of this new liner? Will you be switching soon?
