Going back to my #1 makeup discovery, it's the Beauty Cottage eyeshadows. Honestly, I've known beauty cottage ever since I lived in bangkok but never purchased anything as it is quite expensive. They are more expensive than maybelline and revlon eyeshadows. I was just too lucky to find these eyeshadows at 50% off when I dropped by last november. You will only get the discount if you have their membership card which I happen to have already for free as well! Unfortunately, you can only find it in thailand as it is a thai brand but i'm pretty sure they're working on shipping their products internationally.
Beauty Cottage has a vintage, victorian style which is really unique and cute! If you could only see their shops, the design of their outlet is just amazing and they're really sticking to their theme. Even the salesladies are dressed in vintage outfits as well and I think it's pretty cool and great effort to make an impression to the consumers. Link.
I'm impressed and shocked with their eye shadows because they are pigmented and lasts really well. It's even more pigmented than my revlon eyeshadow. The texture of the shadows are creamy and easy to apply. They're not chalky as well which is a huge thumbs up. Even their packaging are so adorable especially the boxes that's why I haven't throw them away yet. :))
My only con is the price. I do get that they have exerted a great amount of effort in terms of packaging and quality but I still think it's a bit overpriced for an eyeshadow. But nevertheless, I still think they have a great collection of eyeshadows.
1. Color Bloom Pearl Shadow in Moss
The pearl shadow in moss has a moss green pigment but when you blend it, it becomes black. This is a very nice shade and easiest shadow to use if you're achieving a smokey look.
2. Color Bloom Pearl Shadow in Red Haricot
This is also a nice all over shade. I don't really wear pink eyeshadows because I don't think it compliments my eyes but this is an exception. I love that it has more red tone than pink on it. I also use this sometimes as a blush.
3. Chich & Chic Duo Shadow in Blackberry Spread
The light violet is a nice shade for the inner lids. I'm not pleased with the dark purple shade of this duo as it doesn't stay true to its color when applied. As you can see from the pan, the dark purple looks really nice but once you applied it onto your eyelids, it becomes dark grey (almost black) when you start blending it. Even if I pat the shade onto my lids, it still looks greyish. Not purple.
|See how gorgeous the shades are? :)|
I was inspired to post these products because I think they need a little bit more recognition.
Stay tune for the next unhyped makeup find! :)
