I Found my HG Liquid Liner!

I love Japanese products! First of all, it's more suited for Asian skin, so yeah, I take a leap of faith. Kanebo is the first Japanese brand I've encountered. Even when I was young, my mom used a lot of stuff from Kanebo, and if you've been reading my blog for a long time, you'll see that she even bought me lovely presents from Kanebo for Christmas.

Anyway, moving on, I got the chance to try this Kate Super Sharp Liner. Before that, I was really lemming for MAC Penultimate Liner because I'm fond of felt-tip applicators for liquid liners since I find that it's easier to use than brush-type applicators. As you might know, it's hard for me to find a budge-proof black eyeliner because I'm the oiliest gal you will ever meet! I'm serious. But one day, while hanging out in SM Makati, the SA of Kanebo applied this on my lids. After a few minutes, it smudged but after I wiped off the immediate smudging, the rest of it stayed put the whole day. So it seemed like a good product so yes, I went ahead and bought it!

I roadtested it now. I primed my lids using UDPP, and then applied this. I experienced no creasing for the first 3 hours! That's really a record for me! After the 4th hour, there was a very teeny-tiny crease in my right eye (because it's more monolidded than my left), but you couldn't even see it unless you look real close! Whoa, I was really impressed because no liquid liners has ever lasted this long without creasing! I've found my HG liquid liner. I didn't even buy MAC Penultimate Liner anymore when it came out.

So here's how it looks like:

My shade is BK-1 which is the blackest. It's not uber black, but black enough. I can always swipe again if I need it to be darker. I can make a really thin line with it as you can see in my swatch. The texture is not so runny. It's just right if you ask me.

 

I'm loving this because it gets the job done and it's affordable! I got this for less than P600. No need for more expensive brands.

TIPS
  • During SM mall sales, Kanebo goes for 10% off. During Luxeasia sales, they become 20% off.
  • Be sure to close the tip when not in use or else it will dry up easily.

So to end this I will leave you with an EOTD using the Kate Super Sharp Liner:

 

It's hard to see it well with my monolid eye, but it's there. I'm so happy with this EOTD. Do you know why? Because my eye has very little puffiness in this picture. Yey for enough sleep! Unfortunately, I can't say the same for today because I was so tired last night and I'm still tired today. Haha!

So what's your HG liquid liner? I'd love to hear from you.

WOW!! I swear products from over there are so FABULOUS!!! Now if only they would start a Hello Kitty make up line LOL

Music said...

Hi, I just found your blog. :D

My *possible* HG liner is from Make Up For Ever. I've only used it a few times but it stays for hours, which is good as my eyelids can be quite oily.

Music said...

Oh, forgot to say, I'm a freelance musician, so I'm quite pleased to have found your blog. :D When I studied in Singapore, I have a Filipino roommate. Unfortunately I can't remember much tagalog. Only random words like payung and kaliwa. Not sure why. LOL.

Crystal said...

music, oh you're a musician too? we musicians are a rare breed in the beauty blogger world. you had a filipino roommate? that's cool.

martha, enabler ba ko? hehe.

Crystal Gale said...

Sis, is this much easier to use than pencil liners or gel liners? hehe I can only apply using angled eyeliner brush..I haven't tried anything with a felt tip..

Crystal said...

gale, it's as easy as applying a pencil liner if you ask me. it's easier than using a gel liner with brush.

herroyalbleakness said...

good for you Crystal, sigh buti ka pa. Love your brows! how'd you do 'em... what brow stuff did you use?

Crystal Gale said...

Thanks sis! I'll check it out then..I'm planning on getting a YoungBlood pencil liner or Smashbox gel liner kasi..but this is cheaper and if it worked for you, then it will definitely work for me hehe :)

Crystal said...

herroyalbleakness, for that look, i think i used TFS eyebrow pencil in taupe and ELF studio brow treat and tame in medium.

Gale, i hope it works for you too!

herroyalbleakness said...

you mean the elf brow kit? yun din ba yun? :)

okay, TFS taupe :) ill check that out. thanks alot sis! i really don't know how to work my brows out. ever since your FOTD's, ive always wanted to have good looking brows like yours.

Crystal said...

herroyalbleakness, the ELF studio brow treat and tame is a double-ended mascara. i'm not sure if it's available locally as i got it from a pre-order. it's different from the eyebrow kit, which i actually use often. i just used the TFS taupe that night since i wanted my brows to look stronger than i usually do. thanks for the compliment about my brows. i'll do a brow tutorial one of these days :)

herroyalbleakness said...

I can't wait for that tut!

Ans yeah, it's a downer that ELF's treat and tame isn't available locally.

ilang youtube tuts na kasi ang pinapanood ko, still, bad-looking brows pa rin :(

Crystal said...

herroyalbleakness, hmm i'll show you how i do mine but it might not work for you though. :)
