15 Nov

Hello everyone! I know I am pretty late to add this one but I might as well review it and get back into a reviewing atmosphere.

Description: An eyeshadow quint with lovely metallic shades released in Dior’s Fall Limited Edition collection. Consisting of a lovely metallic dark olive, light silvery white, dark copper, shimmery navy blue, and a seafoam metallic green.

Review: I am in love with this palette but then again I have a love for anything blue so you can’t blame me for really liking this palette. All the eye shadows blend smoothly and is pigmented they stay on the eyes with or without primer. Out of the entire palette I have been really surprised with the olive shade it looks really nice on my eyes without making me look to yellow-toned and works well with the other shades in the palette. Since this is my first Dior Quint I am really happy with the entire palette as a whole and with that Dior has won some more room in my wallet.

I am omitting the cost and recommendation because this is a limited edition product that isn’t readily available now that the holiday collections have come out.

Review: Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes in RD784

20 Feb

Hello everyone! A Japanese drugstore eyeshadow quad review today from the ever so popular Majolica Majorca line from Shiseido.

Description: A sparkling eyeshadow set that will make your eyes shine like jewels. The shades are a light yellow based glitter shadow, a pink champagne (satin), a darker pink (satin), and a deep burgandy with pink undertones (satin).

Review: Man, this palette is pretty to look at and I pretty much used it everyday when I got it. The packaging is very sweet and very princess-like if that makes any sense. I love how the pans are the for shadows the mostly used shades are larger than the not so much used shades like the burgandy you don’t use much of it at the time so it’s smaller than the rest. It’s a great idea so that you don’t waste pan space and get more out of the shade you love. As for the shadows all the shades are very buttery smooth, easy to apply and blend. Pigmentation is medium to high pigments (especially on the burgandy shade) it works great as an everyday eye palette but can transform your look at night. I don’t have anything bad to say but the glitter shade just feels awkward but Japanese people love to use those sort of shades in the inner corner of the eyes to make them look brighter and jeweling at the same time. It’s a strange concept but it just wakes up their eyes and makes it all shiny. Those types of shades are found in pretty much a lot of Japanese palettes with different undertones as well to fit with the palette color scheme. Overall, a very nice palette that I will get lots of usage out of.

Cost: $14-20 @ online stores

Would I recommend this product? I would the shadows are really good and I would love to pick up some more!
