K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner 24h Waterproof - Super Black

Sorry for being MIA lately! My procrastinating has caught up with me once again but I finally took some time to force myself to write up this post since I was supposed to post this awhile ago, so now onto the review!

This eyeliner has been raved on about for so long, being compared with the Dollywink liquid eyeliner as its dupe. (would anyone like to see a comparison post about them two?)
Sad to say that they don't stock up this eyeliner here in Aus unless you goto the asian beauty stores in some places, which sell this for an expensive price. Though I'm lucky to have a dad that works in Hong Kong to get me things at Sasa! :D

The back 
You can get this at Sasa for $118 HK dollars or $15 AU which I think it's a fair enough price.

Close up of the black

If you have a scanner on your phone you can scan the code and go onto the K-Palette website.

The actual eyeliner looks like this, in a simple black pen like packaging with silver writing.

What I really like about the packaging is that the tip isn't a felt tip like how most eyeliners are, they're a brush form.
The tip is also really fine that allows me to have a really defined line which will also help on flicking out my eyeliner if I want to do a cat eye.
When I first got this I had really high expectations on this since they exaggerated on the 24hour part, I didnt believe that it lasted for 24 hours but I believed that it lasted longer than the eyeliners I used previously. I usually like to find an eyeliner that lasts on the pigmented, inner corner and lasts on the outer corner (eyeliners always smudge/melt off in that part due to my watery eyes).

I like to thickly line my eyeliner into a wing thats pointed straight instead of the classic cat eye. 
This eyeliner doesnt smudge, flake, fade unless you rub your eyes, but I don't think anyone would do that unless you forget that you had eyeliner on. But I was really disappointed on how it didnt last on the outer parts of my eye (the space between the top and bottom lashline at the end) it did start to fade and flake a bit but if I didnt line my eyeliner in there it would stay intact for the entire day which I guess is a bonus. 
But just to let you know it was not waterproof for me. 
Other than that I actually really like this eyeliner more than my Dollywink although it isn't my HG eyeliner.

HadaLabo GOKUJYUN Lotion Super Hyaluronic Acid

Along with the HadaLabo TAMAGOHADA Daily Face Wash (review post here) I asked my dad to get the  lotion , since I was also looking for a face lotion. 
Though I was pretty hesitant to get it because I have super oily skin but I also have some dry areas on my face, but as I was looking at reviews on this, some people also had oily skin and said this still worked like a charm. 
Came in a pack like this
When I first saw this I thought my dad bought the wrong one since it wasnt an actual cream it was like water.  I thought he got me a toner. But I eventually googled it and found out that it was supposed to be a water consistency.

This came with the GOKUJYUN Paper Mask which I still have yet to try!

So for those who can read the words you can go ahead and translate it but sadly I can't do it myself so I took some pictures of it for those who can!

Ignore those horrible nails :s
Taken off the Hadalabo website 
What I really liked about this product was that it actually claims to do all the things it does.

Yes it  deeply moisturizes the skin
Yes it left my skin feeling super soft and supple
Yes is improved my dry and dehydrated skin
Yes it was free of frangrances

I remember before using this, I had really dry skin around my nose (due to the overuse of tissues) dry areas around my mouth, inbetween my eyebrows and some areas around my cheek.
I only used around 2-3 drops of this focusing on the areas I needed and it made my skin feel super soft and moisturised. After a day of using it I saw that my skin had been improved in the dry areas.

I have no complaints or bad reviews on this product! Though I wish they could sell this in Australia.

 You can get this at the Sasa website though I'm not sure if they sell it with the mask like mine. But it was still the same price.

HadaLabo TAMAGOHADA Daily Face Wash

As I was beginning to run low on my face cleansers (my mum keeps borrowing mine) I decided it would be a good time to ask for my dad to get me one during his trip to Hong Kong/Macau. So I did some online window shopping at Sasa, browsing through the facial cleansers I found this bad boy. I actually couldnt decided between choosing that one or the GOKUJYUN face wash (but i'll probably ask for that one next) but I ended up choosing the TAMAGOHADA Daily Fash Wash due to the amount of postive reviews on the site. 

Had a massive egg shaped sticker at the top which I have no idea what it says but I still put the pictures up incase anyone else can read it.

Why I also wanted to get this was also because of the AHA + BHA that attracted me. I actually had no idea what it was so I did some research myself. But since I'm pretty bad at explaining ...

Taken from Paulaschoice

The back
Costed $69 hk dollars. (Around $8 AU)

Some more pictures!
The back again without the plastic wrapping

The opening is just a normal pop up cap. You also just have to squeeze out the product which is pretty good packaging since you can easily squeeze all of the product when it's running low.

The product itself is a cream texture, which foams really nicely on the face with water. 
What I really liked about it was that after I rinsed it off, I could immediately tell the results. My skin felt tighter and a lot softer. I'm surprised that  It has done wonders to my face. :D

And for those who want to know how they used AHA + BHA in this face wash, I took a picture off the Hada Labo site

Have you tried out the HadaLabo Face Wash?
