K-Palette Essence in Shadow Liner Review

Finally… my first beauty review for 2016! It’s from one of my favorite Japanese brands K-Palette. You know how I love their eyebrow and eyeliner products right? But what if… just what if they can combine eye shadow with eyeliner? Eye shadow is actually one product I can live without but if it’s nice to have, why not?

K-Palette Essence in Shadow LinerSo anyway, sometime last year our lovely friends at K-Palette Philippines sent over these K-Palette 1 Day Tattoo Essence in Shadowliner products for me to try. What do you know, I got all four variants! Each one costs P950 but it’s a 2-in-1 product that combines eyeliner and eye shadow. Interesting? Read on.

K-Palette Essence in Shadow LinerI love the packaging as always… simple yet informative! It sums up pretty much everything you need to know in a glance even if it’s mostly in Japanese.

K-Palette Essence in Shadow LinerSo the K-Palette Essence in Shadow Liner is a standard sized pen, similar to the K-Palette 2-Way Eyebrow (Powder + Pen) products.

K-Palette Essence in Shadow LinerIt’s got a brush tip for lining your eyes on one end.

K-Palette Essence in Shadow LinerOn the other end is a powder tip with a pointy sponge applicator.

K-Palette Essence in Shadow LinerThere are 4 combinations available and I’ve swatched them all on the photo above: Black (Liner) x Brown (Shadow), Brown Black (Liner) x Camel Brown (Shadow), Deep Brown (Liner) x Nude Beige (Shadow), Pink Brown (Liner) x Nude Pink (Shadow). You can mix and match them to achieve your desired look.

K-Palette Essence in Shadow LinerSo here’s a sample before and after shot using the Deep Brown liner, Nude Pink shadow, and Nude Beige shadow. I used the powder tip to dab the powdered eye shadow onto my lids and then used an eye shadow brush to blend.

K-Palette Essence in Shadow LinerThis is the complete look I came up with using the K-Palette Essence in Shadow Liner. I love how it brightens and defines my eyes without looking overdone. I love it so much I think I’ll be adding eye shadow to my usual looks from hereon out.

Products I used for the above FOTD:

What I like about K-Palette Essence in Shadow Liner:

  • It’s super convenient. It’s so much easier bringing around and storing a pen as compared to a palette.
  • Very¬†easy to use. All I need is one eye shadow brush for blending and I’m good to go.
  • It’s pigmented. I don’t need to apply a lot of product to achieve results.
  • It’s versatile, you can already create a variety of looks with 1-2 pens.
  • Like all K-Palette products I’ve tried so far, it lasts until you take it off.

Downside? None really. Well maybe if you want more playful eye shadow and eyeliner colors (blues, greens, etc.), you’re not getting them from this line.

K-Palette Essence in Shadow Liner is available at Beauty Bar stores, select Rustans and SM Department Stores, and UP Town Center Wellworth Department Store for P950 a pop.
