I rarely leave the house without mascara. This heaven-sent make-up is part of my routine because I have small, almond shaped eyes and I need to make them look bigger.
I have used different mascara brands – Maybelline, Cover Girl, MAC, Etude House, Prestige, Avon, and Tony Moly. Right now, I’m using K-Palette 1 Day Lash Perm mascara. I have read about it on several beauty blogs, so I headed to The Beauty Bar to check it out for myself.
The pink fancy box was covered in Japanese text save for the brand and the color, I was scared I wouldn’t understand anything! Good thing, there’s a sticker at the back with information and instructions on using it – in English.
After trying the mascara on, I can say that I agree to the claims at the back of the box. K-Palette mascara has lengthening and curling effects, which I achieved even without using a lash curler. Its curved brush allows application even to the finest of lashes in the inner corners of the eyes.
To put the mascara to the ultimate test, I used it on a day when I was scheduled to go to The Spa for a massage. After taking a shower, I had a 90-minute aromatherapy massage, and I even fell asleep for a few minutes. When I woke up, the mascara was still there. It didn’t smudge, and there was just minimal clumping of lashes. The mascara also easily washed off with lukewarm water and facial cleanser.
What I particularly like about it is that it looks natural and it doesn’t really wear off until I remove it, living up to its name – 1 day perm lash / 1 day tattoo. The only setback is, I don’t think the tube will last for more than two months like the other brands I have used before. The mascara formula isn’t as thick and slick as MAC or Maybelline.
So for that, I’m giving it four out of five heels:
Try it out for yourself. You can get a tube from The Beauty Bar for Php895.
