I’ll keep this review short and quite sweet, okay?
Palgantong (sounds elegant eh) is a brand from Korea (I think?!) and is one of the very first brands I noticed before there was an explosion in the popularity of Korean make up brands generally. Their best selling classic product is the Theatrical Loose Powder which I tried a few times and think is OK.
A few months ago I spotted these palettes on Adambeauty and liked the idea of having 9 shades in one place! I got Brown & Pearl and Smoky & Violet:
The idea of this 3×3 palette is that you can mix up the combinations in rows of three to get the best effect.
The colour choices:
Colour combinations are ok, although I hate the way there are filler shades – those sort of pastel inbetween colours no one wants to use.
The case is black and square, made of plastic, no kind of elegance whatsoever – but that doesn’t matter as long as the product is good!
Unfortunately I don’t like these eyeshadows at all! They’re pretty sheer and there are too many wishy washy colours in them.
Brown & Pearl:
This is one of the more natural palettes as you can see, and only 2 are deeper browns. They have a very soft pearl shimmer to them so it’s a very very neutral palette. The pigmentation is in my opinion, crap. If you are on your very first eyeshadow palette or don’t like any kind of colour then maybe you’d like it:
Smoky & Violet:
Once again there’s a load of mish mash colours to the left and just a few darker interesting ones to the right.
Another problem with these cube eyeshadows is getting the colour on your brush to use – it’s obviously a small surface area to work with and is they’re quite powdery, like these ones, they make a mess.
