Hello friends!

Recently, I was introduced to popular Japanese makeup brand K-Palette which has arrived on our sunny shores!

I’m a huge fan of Japanese makeup because I think they are more suited for Asian skin and their colors tend to complement my skin tone better (especially since I am really fair!)

Thanks to the kind people at K-Palette, I was sent a whole buncha goodies and I couldn’t wait to try them out!

BASE

Before I begin, I think I should let you guys know my skin type… I have combination skin - can get dry sometimes but by mid-day my face is usually a disastrous oil pan if I’m not using the right products.

Starting with the ZERO TEMA BB CREAM, this lightweight BB cream covers imperfections and dispels discoloration.

image

I have sensitive acne-prone skin so I love how it is made with an addictive free formula i.e. no* parabens, no mineral oils, no artificial fragrances or dyes*. It felt really gentle and lightweight on my skin without the “thick, cakey feeling” that often comes with liquid foundation.

image

Blends really easily into my skin!

image

All perfectly blended in!

This product retails at $23.90 and functions as a good daytime moisturizer (super moisturizing with hyaluronic acid and collagen added) and sunblock (SPF30 PA++++) with sufficient coverage.

image

Due to my workaholic nature, I tend to work late into the night (I’m writing this at 1am btw) and unfortunately have super dark eye circles. This Zero Kuma Cover Control Concealer works to hide undereye circles, skin discoloration and fine lines naturally.

image

I love how it is formulated with hydrating Hyaluronic Acid and collagen so it isn’t like most concealers of a dry texture (which can make fine lines even more obvious!)

These pictures were taken when I was PMS-ing so I had a few breakouts >.< I tested this concealer on my zits and it works pretty well on my blemishes too! hehe. This retails at $19.90!

image

I generally prefer a matte finish for my makeup look so I usually set my base with powder - here, I am using the Zero Teka Oil Control Mat Powder.

image

This clear matte veil powder covers pores and uneven skin tone naturally and retails at $19.90.

I also loveee how the product smells - this powder contains Persimmon Tannin which kept my face fresh-smelling the entire day :)

EYES

Now that the base is done, let’s move on to the eyes!

image

This is their star product - the 24H Real Lasting 2-way Eyebrow Liner!

Awarded the Best Everyday Eyebrow Pencil by Cleo Magazine, this revolutionary eyebrow liner comes with a powder tip on one end, and a liquid tip at the other!

image

This waterproof eyebrow liner is made of just the right amount of translucence such that the color is deep enough to conceal the sparse areas of your eyebrows but not too dark that it gives a severe and unforgiving tone (think: AH LIAN!) I found it really use to use and blend and long-lasting. No more missing eyebrows by lunchtime :D

This awesome liner retails at $23.90.

image

I can live without blusher and lipstick but I can’t do without eye makeup. My eyes are my best features (not shy la I know) and I like to play them up with makeup :)

You can now get this limited edition set - the 1 Day Tattoo Eyeliner + 1 Day Lash Perm, Long Curl Mascara at only $29.90! (UP $45.80!!)

image

This waterproof eyeliner is K-Palette’s star product.

I got to admit something, when I was doing up this post, I was a liquid eyeliner virgin. I’ve been using pencil liners for years but now I’m a convert! I have really oily lids and usually I get embarrassing panda eyes in Singapore’s punishing weather but this waterproof eyeliner stayed on for hours without smudging!

I also love how the patented soft-brush application makes it very easy to use - I can draw really thin lines for everyday use and build them up easily for a more dramatic night look!

image

I started using mascara base a few years back to keep my lashes curled and I love how the * Style Keep Base* kept my eyelashes curled all day, as if they have been permed!

In the picture, I applied only one layer of the mascara base to my right eyelashes - can you see the difference?!

The mascara base retails at $23.90.

image

And then this is with just one coat of the 1DAY Lash Perm Volume Curl Mascara on both eyes.

This look is good enough for my usual day look, but when I head out at night, I find that it is easy to layer this mascara without clumping for a polished look.

Most importantly, this mascara contains ingredients that promote lash growth! What sorcery is this?!

This is my favorite product of the lot :)

image

All done!

But first, let me take a selfie :P
