k-palette real lasting eyeliner 24hr waterproof *my HG liner*



the problem i have with eyeliner (all kinds: liquid, pencil, gel, etc.) is that, somehow, they all like to migrate down to my lower lids (even the Bobby Brown gel liner). if left unwiped, i basically end up looking like a panda by the end of the night midday. so, i decided to try the "1-Day Tattoo." i actually saw this eyeliner at the TOP 10 store when i was in Japan last winter. i was curious about it then but didn't end up buying it. at the time, i thought it would be just like putting Sharpie on your face because it didn't erase or smudge when i tested it on my hand. maybe it is like Sharpie but just non-toxic..? either way, i finally decided to quench my curiosity and try it out.

current status: 10 hours -- no panda face. WHOA! i don't think i can go 24 hours because that is just gross. overall, i can officially say that i am impressed. i've found my new HG eyeliner! i would post a pic but i look horrible right now.

Flake/No Flake?: no flake BUT if you rub later in the day (and have oily lids), it might rub off a little bit, but this is TOTALLY not like the typical waterproof cracking/flaking that happens with other waterproof liquid liners. this liner goes on so thin on application. you might even have to layer it on if you want that thick don't-f*ck-w/me look. hehe
Removal: surprisingly, it comes off pretty well w/ a little bit of face soap and water. so here's the recap. it doesn't run down your face even if you have oily lids (like i do). if you don't touch it, it doesn't smudge at all. but if you wanna take it off, just wash it off like you normally do. voila!
Where to Buy: i bought mine @ life plaza in hacienda but i've seen it at japanese goody shops. =) you might want to try marukai (not nijia), but only if it's a big one.
Overall Rating: 5/5 stars

Did it wash off pretty easily? So no smudging or cracking or flaking? Might have to try it out too. :)

I purchased this eyeliner from ebay and it rocks! I switched from Bobbi Brown gel liner to MAC fluid line in black track recently because the Bobbi Brown gel liner is drier and flakes a little. Personally, I'm liking the MAC fluid line (this is WITH the urban decay primer potion!) because it goes on smoother. I'm SO used to using a slanted brush that I had trouble using the 1 day tattoo liner. It'll take a few practices for me to get used to but I LOVE IT so far. It draws FLAWless lines...I just put it on so I don't know about it smudging but yesterday I tested it on the back of my hand and it lasted through several washes. Thanks again!

Well well well, I saw this product at Japan and i try it and my conclusion is... this eyeliner is truly amazing.... Why???? Well i have a very oily eyelid, so when most of the pencil or liquid eyeliner product claim that they are waterproof, it's mean nothing for me. Because my problem is the oil at mine eyelid not the water... so i need to constantly powder my eyelid to stop the eyeliner from smudging... Trust me i try and used anything like Revlon liquid eyeliner, Bobbbi Brown and MAC eyeliner gel, Maybeline pencil... but still not good enough for me (my friend have the same problem but recently she just bought MAC new liquid eyeliner and she think it's pretty good).
So when i saw this product at Japan at the king and Queen shop at Shibuya station, i curiously try them at the back of my hand and let it dry (this eyeliner apparently rate as their no.1 eyeliner product). At the time i didn't do anything and i wait after around 4-5 hour later, i start rubbing the eyeliner part vigorously and nothing move or smudge... that's good... Then how about add a bit of cream on them and rub it... Still not moving... Now that's impressive... But if this liquid eyeliner have such a long lasting effect is that hard to remove???? Strangely not, i just used the regular make-up cleansing oil, then all come off easily...
This liquid eyeliner have a very strong n dark pigment, the tip is fine and a bit long so a bit hard to control.
At Japan you can easily get this at most drugstore... Hope this will help...

I bought it for 1,260 yen so it's around USD14 / Euro 10....

How long does it take you to completely finish a tube of eyeliner? I'm thinking about buying it.
