お早う みなさん！(Good morning, everybody!)
Today's post will be something I'm super passionate about - eyeliner! Have I ever mentioned that my HG eyeliner is K-Palette's eyeliner? No? Well, now you know. (˘ v ˘) Anyway, from the moment I saw this baby at SaSa, I knew it was time to retire my old faithful (1 Day Tattoo Real Lasting Eyeliner) since it was already running dry, and let its adorable pink successor take its place.
Let me introduce to you, the K-Palette 1 Day Magic Liquid Eyeliner! It was definitely love at first sight (sorry, 1 Day Tattoo ⌒_⌒;), and honestly, can you blame me?
You might be wondering, how is this one different from the other K-Palette liquid eyeliners (besides the pretty pink packaging)? Well, aside from the usual claims of being super pigmented ✓, waterproof ✓, smudge-proof ✓, and easy to remove ✓, the 1 Day Magic Liquid Eyeliner also contains essence ingredients (sodium hyaluronate, soluble collagen, swertia japonica extract) that is gentle on the eyelids, and the main selling point... a flat end brush that allows you to easily draw thin or thick lines!

Allow me a few moments to wax lyrical (pun intended - see the background) and graphical about just how exquisitely pretty the packaging is, from the paper packaging to the eyeliner pen itself. I can hardly bear to throw away the paper packaging. ಥ_ಥ

Alright, now that we've established the pleasantly aesthetic part of the eyeliner, it's time to focus on the function. Form and function? You'll be glad to know that this is one makeup item that checks both and then some.
As mentioned above, the main selling point of this eyeliner pen is the fact that it has a flat end brush tip. Most eyeliner pens nowadays are competing to see who can come up with the thinnest, finest tip *cough* but this 1 Day Magic Liquid Eyeliner prides itself based on the fact that you can draw very thin lines using its fine tip side, or a thicker line (3 times thicker than the thin side) using the flat side. [Sounds familiar but infinitely better in every way, eh?]

|3x thicker lines just by rotating the brush 90°!|

Conclusion? The K-Palette liquid eyeliner is still my HG eyeliner. Same amazing formula, new improved design, and super cute packaging make it a joy to use. Extra love because I managed to snag it at 30% off retail price even though it's a new product! ψ(｀∇´)ψ
✓ Pros: Cute packaging, practical design, extremely pigmented, dries fast, slight glossy finish, able to draw thin and thicker lines, waterproof, smudge-proof, easily removed.
✗ Cons: Slightly pricey.
The K-Palette 1 Day Magic Liquid Eyeliner (Super Black) retails at RM 51.90 and is available at SaSa outlets. Product is made in Japan.
