I picked this up in Changi airport two weeks ago. I couldn’t resist myself getting this palette as the texture of the eyeshadow is so soft and smooth when I swatch it. The eye and cheek palette is available in two colors – enchanted black parallel/ full pink parallel palette. I picked the enchanted black palette as the palette offers more vibrant shades.
The eye shadows in this palette are incredibly soft and smooth. There are two types of formulation of eyeshadow in this palette; the pressed formula and the silk smooth formula. There are 4 shades of the pressed formula eyeshadow which comes in a bigger pan.The silk smooth formula comes in a smaller pan and there are 3 shades in this palette.
The pressed form feels powdery and smooth, I love the softness and smoothness of their pressed eyeshadow. The shades are nicely pigmented and i can hardly see any fall outs.
The silk smooth eyeshadow has a different feeling compared to the pressed when it is touched. The silk smooth eyeshadow has a creamier texture but it doesn’t feel slippery or wet. It has better pigmentation compared to the pressed formula and it is very smooth. I agree that Shu Uemura named this eyeshadow formulation as silky smooth. It is as smooth as silk
Here’s the swatch of the eyeshadow in order of the positioning of the shades in the palette.
And now here’s the swatch according to the formula:
All the shades in this palette are nicely pigmented and they have beautiful texture. I find the colors here are nicely combined especially for smokey eye look. I really love the dark green shade; the metallic shade is so gorgeous. I love to use dark green to create a smokey look as it is less dramatic but yet it still gives a bigger eye effect.
Overall I love this palette for their vibrand colors and beautiful texture and pigmentation. I love the range of eyeshadow colors which are not too neutrals but at the same time it offers shades that I would wear quite often. The silk smooth eyeshadow has gorgeous pigmentation with no fall out. Moreover the blush shade is something that I would usually wear. There’s no reason for me to dislike this piece
