Another Etude House product and you surely know what feelings I have for them. I got this palette from a dear friend of mine who knows my choice to the core and I am glad I got this.
PACKAGING:I like the packaging as it is chic and fancy like other etude house products.The outer cover is chocolate-brown in a pink colored cardboard packaging that is girly at the same time ,being classy!A transparent plastic overleaf is provided which is placed above the shades carrying names of the shadows.Two small brushes are provided that are hardly of nay use.
The colours from L-R are: Coco Brown (neutral brown with copper sparkles), Clutch Brown (brown foil glitter), Pop Champagne (beige foil glitter), French Kiss (matte light pink), Misty Rose (matte purple-pink), Diva (purple wine with copper glitter), Glam Forest (silvery green foil glitter), Midnight Star (deep blue foil glitter), Sparkling Wine (pink foil glitter), Leopard Brown (matte deep brown).
MY VIEWS:I like glitter but it cannot be worn all the time so we need matte shades as well.This palette is a combination of both the finishes and I just love it for that.I can carry this palette anywhere without taking other shadows except black.A basic black is missing here which I need for every look though Leopard Brown is deep dark enough to make the look sultry but the magic of Black cannot be created by any other shade.
O7-Glam Forest is a shade that I love applying as it is unique being a mix of green and silver glitter flecks.All the shades are decently pigmented and apply well on lids.The glittery ones are also creamy and can be used wet as well dry.They don’t crease or fade and the staying power can be increased with a good primer underneath.I use these over concealer as well as over paint pot and both ways,they work well.The shadows stay for about 5-6 hours.The matte shades are also decently pigmented but they do have a bit of fallout.However,they aren’t chalky.
RECOMMENDATION:I love this palette and have been using it a lot with my Sleek Oh so Special.The shades are lovely and wearable.Also,they can be used for subtle looks as well as glittery,smokey looks.I just suggest an addition of intense black to every palette.
