This is a pallet i bought prior to buying the tangerine collection from the competition. once again my purpose of purchasing these was to buy enough to avail of the poster/calendar/diary promo of their endorser Kim Hyun Joong as seen in the pic below:
so as much as i am aware that buying online is less expensive than directly at the face shop boutiques at our local malls, as a Triple S, i support our dear leader by taking advantage of these freebies with purchase available only from the store directly.
the shades i have [and in no particular order] are OR204, PP404, BR802 and a yellow cream shadow is YL704, so the one yellow shade is a cream shadow and the rest are pressed shadows.
i super love the sponge-tip applicators [you get two for every empty pallet you purchase]. they have just the right give and softness to pick up the right amount of powder and spreads it out evenly. yep, i have to say it, the sponge tip applicator that came with one of their pallets, the faceIt one is really bad, but these, the two that came with the empty pallet rivals the sponge-tip applicators that come along with the MM pallets!
swatches on my arm ;-)
love these shades, i feel like i look like a four season's drink!
my summery pomelo pineapple eye of the week! LOL
you can use the yellow cream base or the flesh tone which ever you prefer, the yellow cream shadow is quite shimmery so it's great for a summer night out.
i've been wearing this eye shadow look for the last few days now. even in this dreary weather, LOL. and they're sorta reminding me of a colorful summer we are no longer quite into anymore.
♫♪ and it was all yellow♫♪
you can make these subtle or more bold depending on how you apply them. certainly there are more shades at your nearest the face shop boutique but for the shades i have, i'd have to say i'm pretty impressed with the quality of the powder, compared to their FaceIt quad pallet, phhhffft i should've have bought these lovely me:ex to begin with. i just don't recall how long ago these have in the stores though. yep these singles that can fit in that pallet will eventually replace those eye shadow singles that the face shop has had like, hmmmm forever? by the way, the single eye shadows do not have a magnet at its bottom it clicks into place.
- shade range well it isn't as vast as say mac, but you have your basics
- powder quality, very fine, not as creamy-fine as MM's but these are finely milled and very pigmented
- easy to blend
- do not fade throughout the day
- do not crease
- NO fall out
- satin shimmer finish
- shades i have suit my complexion ;-)
- the price, as usual, the eye shadow singles of etude house is priced at PhP148 while this each the face shop lovely me:ex shadow is PhP200++ [i'll review the etude singles i have soon]
Do I recommend: sure they're quality shadows ;-)
Will I repurchase: jury's still out on that, since the quality of the powder of these and etude's are so similar to each other it would be only unique shades that i'd have to find that isn't available at Etude that would make me purchase more lovely me:ex shadows.
One last comment: seriously, ME:EX? a play on spelling meaning you can MIX and match shades onto the pallet thingy. but really? ME:EX? hahaha grammar police wannabe, i shut up naoo.
has anyone else tried this?
