K-Palette D. Eye. Y. Bloggers Event

A few weeks ago, I dragged my lazy butt off to an event. Le gasp! I rarely go to these things, but it helped a lot that Crissey was invited too. Somehow during occasions like these, I’d always, ALWAYS prefer being an invisible bystander, lol. Or a silent admirer from afar.

Good thing fate brought Cheryl (of Beauty Box, in charge of K-Palette, Fuwarie and Fairydrops in the Philippines) and I together some time ago, and we instantly clicked with our mutual love for Japanese beauty products! Really owe her a lot for being one of the first people to bring in new Japanese beauty brands to the Filipino market.

With CANMAKE coming in this year, I really hope there’ll be more Japanese brands coming to Manila in the next few years.

The event was called D. Eye. Y! There were lots of DIY activities for us to do before the event proper started.

Of course, Trissey had to have an obligatory camwhoring shot first.

Then it was Furoshiki time! Furoshiki is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth.

Left one is Crissey’s, right one is mine. We did the large object wrap because we got too amused with the handle concept and the cute ribbon in front!

You can try it yourself too! No need for pins and needles.

Then we also had an option to paint cherry blossoms using the bottom of a bottle.

Crissey didn’t follow instructions but produced the best painting. Obviously, she had the most awesome artistic skills. Nothing new!

Mr. Kinoshita, founder of K-Palette, thanked us for supporting the brand. Did you know that K-Palette doesn’t have a proper marketing team here in the Philippines? It was all thanks to bloggers that the word about this brand got out so fast!

I wanted to talk to him and have a photo with him but I was too shy. Nothing new!

Chief make-up artist Rina Ogata demonstrated how to use their new product – Real Lasting Mega Cute Double eyelid glue. No need for double eyelid surgery! You can just do it yourself (D. Eye. Y. GET IT?)

Basically all you have to do is apply the glue on your preferred crease, wait for the glue to become clear, then shape accordingly with the help of the eyelid stick thing that comes with the glue. So easy!

Voila! Instant crease on the model’s monolids. You can see the huge difference here as one eye was kept make-up and eyelid glue-free.

Mizuho Hakoyama, the eye model for the packaging of Real Lasting Mega Cute Double eyelid glue! She reminded me so much of my friend Keena from college.

Anyhow, I took a photo of her trendy eye make! I saw some girls in Shibuya last spring sporting the same eyeliner trick (and even spazzed about it with Camille). I tried it and it doesn’t suit my current look! Maybe if I cut my hair shorter or go for and edgier haircut and style.

She was also sporting the high blush trend! You can tell she was very Harajuku-inspired. Too bad I wasn’t able to take a photo of her super adorable outfit.

Group photo! Everyone looked perfect while my bangs decided to be ugly for this photo.

After the event. One-eyed me, and cute-as-always Crissey. So many people complimented her for her blazer! So SNSD Genie with the sailor theme!

I immediately tried using the products when I got home. I already have double eyelids, but I still use eyelid tape sometimes if I want my eyes to look deeper and more dramatic. I think these products will work better for monolids. I felt like my natural crease was fighting with the glue, so in the end, I got not-so-drastic results. Or maybe I just had high expectations, seeing how easily I can manipulate the size of my eyelids with normal eyelid tape.

The only thing eyelid tapes don’t have that these K-Palette eyelid glues have? You can’t tell if someone’s wearing this eyelid glue or not since it dries transparently. And you can also use the pink/glue type as eyelash glue and the orange/tape type as eyelid primer. Double purpose!

K-Palette Real Lasting Mega Cute Double Eyelid products are available at Beauty Bar stores for P695.
