I am a really a big fan of asian cosmetics, so i try out a lot of things. A while ago i purchased on eBay an eyeshadow duo from Etude House ... and well as always the packaging was at fault xD.
I choose the color #Peach & Honey because i didn't have a similar eyeshadow in my collection and I am on kind of a peach trip at the moment. I paid around 6€, shipped from South Korea and shipping included.
The black ring inside the package i find rather ugly oO silver would have been a better choice, but oh well~
I always use a primer or a base under it so i can't say anything about the lasting power of this eyeshadow. The colors are a bit on the sheer side and don't have the soft texture I normaly prefer. The vanilla one is a bit more glittery than the peach one, what I like because I have a similiar color but without any glitter or shimmer.
Overall I am satisfied with what I got, but I don't think that I will get more of those, because there are better eyeshadows out there. If you also want to try them out you can get them HERE
My first review here and before I review the item I want to talk about this topic, because I had some problems in the last few years. I always searched for a good and long-lasting eyeshadow base. I tried some other cheap products from Catrice and Essence before (I tried them before I became vegan), but always ended up dissapointed. Everytime I used these products a few hours later the eyeshadow gather in my eyelid crease and so I thought that using these products was just a waste of time and money... I went back to my old habits in fixing the eyeshadow with hairspray when going out and proceeded in not wearing eyeshadow at work . ^^"
After the "I feel pretty" LE was announced by P2 and I got a glimpse of the products and thought to myself that I wanted to give it a try again, cause all my dear co-authors were rather happy with their eyeshadow base products. So I went to buy the eye primer pencil beyond beauty.
Product name: beyond beauty eye primer pencil
Color: 010 flawless
Facts: It's possible to sharpen the pencil with a pencil sharpener for thick pencils. I tried to take pictures of the color on my skin, but the swatch was hardly visible on my skin. The pencil is vegan.
Today I made some pictures of my makeup in the evening. I put it on at 06:40 AM in the morning and took the photo at 08:00 PM in the evening. You can see that there is not much eyeshadow gathered in my eyelid crease after over 12 hours of wearing. I didn't correct or fix anything during work, cause of my laziness and having too much to do at work (and I also don't want to carry my whole make-up products around with me :P).
Conclusion: I'm quite happy about how this purchase turned out this time. It also seems that it's not necessary to put a lot of the product on the eyes to get the eyeshadow longlasting enough. What I like the most about this product is the color boost of the eyeshadow (the colors were a light grey and violet). What I will rate in the next few weeks is the durability during "extreme" conditions (when I go out with my girls for dancing).
Minus 1 point, cause a small amount of the eyeshadow gathered in my eyelid crease after all.
