K-Palette Essence in ShadowLiner*

As you all know (if you’ve been reading my lil ol’ blog for a while), I’m a total slave for K-Palette eyebrow/eyeliner products. Imagine my glee when I received this package—an eyeshadow/eyeliner hybrid called the K-Palette Essence in ShadowLiner*—right before I left for a trip.

It’s similar to the dual-ended eyebrow markers that K-Palette makes with a brush-tip on one end and a powder product on the other end. In this case, it’s eyeliner instead of brow marker opposite eyeshadow and a sponge-tip applicator coupled with a spring mechanism.

I received four colors: the eyeliner in black and varying depths of brown, and shimmery neutral eyeshadow shades.

I tried them out on my eyes, sans primer and eyebrow anything. Sorry for the horror. Anyway, look:

If you’re low maintenance, these are amazing products to bring on for trips. I brought 01 and 02 with me to Taiwan, but I’m a little picky with eye makeup, so I never really used just the pens. They’re useful little multi-taskers for those who aren’t as fussy as me, though.

I’m also not a fan of how the shadow is dispensed, so take care when applying and watch out for fallout!

The thinking behind these products is pretty interesting, to me. See, you have 4 very specific types of shades and how they’ve designated each is pretty utilitarian as they have their own purpose:

  • 01 black x brown with deep pearl — “deep eye definition” and “accentuate the eyes”
  • 02 brown black x camel brown with vivid pearl — “soft eye definition” and “glamorous look for the eyes”
  • 03 deep brown x nude beige with soft pearl — “natural makeup” and “sheer highlight”
  • 04 pink brown x nude pink with shiny pearl — “feminine makeup” and “shimmering finish”

It’s ultra useful if you’re just starting out with makeup and you just need one go-to look. It doesn’t work in that way for me, but I do love the shades of liquid liner in my favorite formula.

The K-Palette Essence in ShadowLiner retails for Php 950 each, exclusively available at Rustan’s (Shangri-la, Makati, Alabang Town Center), BeautyBar, and SM’s Beauty Section (Megamall, Mall of Asia, Makati, Aura).

  1. I always appreciate products that promise to streamline my routine, but truth be told, I’m also super picky about my makeup and I often have old favorites. Maybe one day I’ll have just one little makeup bag with everything I need in it, and it’ll contain these one-and-done products, but well…

    I like that it is a combo. I didn’the try the k-palette eyeliners yet. But they look so intrigueing.

    Not going to lie these look gorgeous… Desperately wish I could get hold of K-Palette products more easily than ordering online. Will definitely consider trying these out.

    • Definitely pick them up if you get the opportunity to! Sorry it’s hard to get a hold of wherever you are x
