I think i have posted too many selcas and FOTDs recently
Now is time to make a really really GOOD review!
Just afraid you got stomachache by seeing too many pictures of me.
Don`t be, okay?
Today I am back with Karl for Shu Smoky Velvet Pallete Review
This is quite a new released pallete by Shu Uemura brand
I am sooo lucky to be able to laid my hands to this beautiful pallete for free because i won a competition recently.
The pallete is retailed at around 735.000 rupiahs ( i think)
Price may vary though.
You can get this pretty pallete at Shu Uemura counter near you
It comes with a pretty card box that feels quite gothic in the same time.
I like this front look below here. So pretty. The brand name is embossed in red and it looks professional, gothic, and classy all at the same time
When you open the card box, TADAAA.. This uber cute pallete comes out!
In the back, written the description about what is inside. Inside there are five eyeshadows and one blush.
See? Even the inside mirror is pretty! hahaha. I love how this mirror have monshu girl pattern.
There are two applicators and surprisingly they work well.
Unlike those ones i encounter in cheaper palletes before.
I like the sponge tip the most because it is great for applying deep colors on the outer corner of the eyes
It has two silk smooth eyeshadow. The top two, black and green.
Another three are pressed eyeshadow.
And the blush? It is the bottom right with pink colored.
I was disappointed that the blush is this small.
I was hoping on getting bigger size blush >.<
Huk huk huk...
The eyeshadows are easy to blend, smooth in texture, and very pigmented.
With the applicators at hand, the eyeshadows are easily applied.
I swatched the eyeshadows and blush below without primer and they show up very nicely.
The pressed eyeshadow has this fine shimmers that looks radiant on my eyes. But, the silk smooth eyeshadows are a bit too much on glitters. Sometimes the glitters fall out >.<, true glitterbombs.
It stayed all day, even on the oily lids. I used this pallete to do make up for my auntie and she said it stays all day, from the morning church ceremony to wedding reception at night.
Texture : 4/5
Longevity : 5/5
All in all, i love this pallete against all odds!
Thank you Shu Uemura for giving this to me
I am really grateful!
