This is a way overdue post 囧! Cuz I bought this like earlier this year? But I just never got around to review this and the No.1 Palette... cuz... honestly... I wasn't super impressed with them (囧 x 2!!) So I wasn't that excited to write a review on it... (Tsubasa fans please don't kill me >_<) but since I decided to use this palette today, might as well :P This is probably only the third time I used it @_@
As usual, let's take a look at the packaging cuz you all know Dolly Wink has the most adorable packaging!
The palette itself is small, which I like ^_^ doesn't take up much space is always a bonus!
The swatches look pretty good on my hands. My main disappointment is the pink eye shadow, which in my opinion is the life and soul of this palette. Unfortunately, I found the pink eye shadow to be the least pigmented, and it just doesn't translate that well on my skin (maybe it's my skin tone). I have to use a wet brush to apply the pink shade to get the intensity I want. The greys and the black are also not as intense when applied on my eyes.
And I guess a lot of it is I compare the eye shadow performance with my high-end eye shadows (like Lancome) so I guess I'm not really being fair. I want to say it is a very good quality palette for a drugstore product (but then again quite expensive for drugstore as well), but it just doesn't match up with high-end ones. Also I am not too fond of the texture of the eye shadow????? I can't describe it but I do prefer certain textures when it comes to eye shadows. I just don't like the feel of these as well.
I don't usually wear lower lashes on a regular basis so I just did my regular eyeliner routine. The pink eye shadow looks weird on its own if I don't wear bottom lashes or eyeliner.
You can see the dark grey didn't show up too well. And I did use a wet brush to apply the pink shade to build up the intensity.
Hm I really don't have that much to say so I guess that's it? I love the color scheme of this palette but I wish the pink one is more pigmented.
That's all I have ^_^
