I actually hauled these goodies a longggg time ago, but have only just had the chance to write about them now.
Vidi Vici is a premium Korean brand which is sold in various spots across Asia. Their products do really appeal to me, as they have quite a chic look and are quite interesting. When my aunt went over earlier last year I gave her a small shopping list and we’ll ignore the fact that she got me the wrong shade in the pencil (she does this every time) – I am really happy with the products because I have been using them a lot over the last year.
The products are:
The Make Up Styler II Secret Styler which comes in two combinations; Warm Secret and Cool Secret. I ended up with Warm.
The Draw & Fix eyeshadows come in 4 shades and I ended up with 10 Naked and 11 Evening Brown.
The eyeshadow comes in a two tiered palette in a black plastic case which is neither heavy nor light. There is a mirror in the top of the lid and it’s actually nicely compact which makes it great for taking around.
The top contains the evening look, which is a matte ash brown, a sparkly purple and a sparkly khaki green.
The bottom is the day look, which is a warm brown , sparkly orange and a glitter gold.
I love all of the shades and you can combine the top and bottom of course.
The top tier is lovely – the colours although this is a warm palette, I would argue is a ‘cool’ group. The colours are soft and pigmented, buttery to feel and although my swatches don’t look very deep, they do apply nicely on to the eye.
Purple – rich metallic purple
Khaki – golden metallic green gold
Ash Brown – useful shade for contouring, creases, brows etc etc. I find myself using this shade a lot.
Warm brown – chocolate with gold particles.
Orange/Coral – Peachy shimmer with gold, nice for the lid, not light enough for a highlight
Gold – Super glittery but not too chunky gold which is the prettiest glittery eyeshadow I now own.
My swatches aren’t great but I promise you the whole palette applies really well with a brush:
I rather stupidly misplaced (if you can misplace something virtual) the images for the draw and fix eyeshadows. These are basically water resistant eye crayons and so far, there are just four neutral colours.
1 – This is a pearly highlight colour
2 – A rich shimmer free creamy brown
3 – Naked – shimmer free base colour. I couldn’t think of a similar dupe which is an eye crayon that is completely shimmer free
4 – Evening brown, a metallic medium brown
Naked is a really boring but useful eye crayon. On my eye it looks almost invisible once applied but it evens everything out and means I can apply whatever I want over it and everything will last ok.
Evening brown has a lovely gold shot through it which looks lovely and warm on my eyes. It isn’t really a copper but it has a coppery-ness to it without being brash. This is more dupable than Naked as I am sure there are similar shades in the Bobbi Brown and Laura Mercier range.
The eyeshadow palette cost almost £60 which is expensive! I would put it more at £40 and this is a bit of a turn off. The eyeshadow crayons were £25-ish so once again, pricey. They do last well but not necessarily any better than Laura Mercier’s eye caviars.
Nevertheless, if you can get your hands on it, this range is worth a try if you like high quality make up!
