My search for a smudge-proof, long-wearing eyeliner has finally ended with the discovery of a red box with the words “1-day tattoo”.

I was very skeptical at first. I didn’t buy it the first time I saw it last year and instead went for another brand that claimed its eyeliner to be “super long-lasting” and “smudgeproof”. What a disappointment. The super long-lasting liner smudged after 3 hours of wear (hot, humid climate + oily skin=makeup disaster). I decided to give the Japanese-made K-Palette liner a try just a few weeks ago.

And boy did it LAST.  It went from my 9 am appointment, to my 2 o’clock lunch date and then a 5 hour walk about town without nary a smudge. When I finally came home at 11 pm, the lines I drew more than 14 hours before were still intact, almost like… a tattoo? What’s more amazing was the fact that as soon as I took a shower and washed my face, all traces of the liner vanished (the one I got is non-waterproof version). No rubbing or eye makeup remover required.

Notes:
Applying took a bit of getting use to as the tip is super-fine. These can be found in Japan and at some stores in Singapore (e.g. Isetan Lido, Suntec Watson’s).
