You know what the problem with many Korean eyeshadow palettes are? Bearing in mind I have used many?
That so many are just average. They sure look pretty but where is the pigment? Sure, Japanese brands don’t exactly make pigment rich eyeshadows but their have a gorgeous shimmer that is hard to compare.
Anyway I did feel the need to purchase this Etude House Personal Colour Palette because it contains 20 colours. There is a Warm and Cool variation and I would always always go for Warm HOWEVER that was sold out. Since Cool was on a Black Friday offer I decided to buy it anyway or as Mr C calls it, ‘Stocking up for the next blog sale’ .
How many palettes of neutrals does one person need? HOW MANY? Not that many. But this is Cool and I don’t have many cool toned nudes. This palette comes in a box.
All these shades come with names but seriously, who cares it’s not like you can buy them separately.
Here they are. There are various shades and textures. The shades err in the plum/fawn cool toned family, I wouldn’t say it is totally completely utterly cool which might by why I like it.
This palette is not very glam it’s just plain white plastic but there is a big mirror which is great. No crappy applicator, thanks.
Each pan is only small but it’s enough. The texture is very soft and crumbly, in fact I am sure dropping it would make half the powders fall out. So be careful! The glittery shades in particular are super soft.
