Yay! It’s time for doing a review on the Colorful Eyeshadow from Daiso Japan in Tokyo. I did a Japan Beauty Haul last Friday, you can click here to read a full review. So, anyways, this is a ¥100 = $1.00 eyeshadow with a net wt: 4g. Insanely low price and to be honest I’m not complaining, hehehe!
It comes in a lovely plastic packaging which looks decently made. It’s doesn’t look cheap like some drugstore brands I’ve seen. This is a four eyeshadow quad with all its formula been shimmery especially the pink color which has the most glitter on. It looks almost frosty in my opinion.
You can see how richly pigmented the formula are and the texture is amazing. It’s feel buttery and smooth. So, easy to blend and the color payoff is great.
Here are the color swatches I swipe directly to my bare hand and looks how gorgeous the shades and pigmentations! Crazily pigmented! I’ll give it thumbs up. The color from left to right: White (Shimmer), Gold (Metallic), Dark Brown (Satin) and Pink (Frosty)
I started by putting on an Eye Base by Evelyn Iona all over my lids. First, I gently put the White shade from the Quad palette on my browbone and inner corner. Then I proceed by applying the Gold color on my crease to give a definition. The secret to having a pretty pretty eyes is to blend and blend your eyeshadows very well. Take your time to blend all in. Next, I use the Dark Brown at the outer corner and work my way inwards. Lastly, I use my flat brush and tap the Pink frosty shadow on my lids. It’s important not to blend but just tap the formula on the lids.
I use my Annabelle in Jet Black to apply on my lashline and leaving the bottom lash line bare for this look. I want my eyes to look wider and natural.
I finish it with applying the Heroine Make Volume and Curl Mascara by Kiss Me in Black. This mascara is not from Daiso Japan but from Isehan in Tokyo. It comes in a thin and short bristle wand.
I love how it volumize, lengthen with no smudges at all. It does performs what the mascara should do. I noticed that my lashes looked as though as I’m wearing fake lashes when I used this mascara. ^-^
I’ve to admit that it’s a nice mascara for ¥1000 = $10.00 but a little pricey for a mascara. There are two cons – one is that it’s too dry for my eyes and second I feel this formula is so hard to remove. I’ve sensitive eyes and this formula just make my eyes feel uncomfortable after awhile. It’s drying up my lashes like crazy. So, unfortunately, this mascara is something that I will not reach for in the future 😦
So there you have it, a neutral eye makeup look using just the shadows from the colorful quad. You can wear this for an everyday look. It has good staying power and I really like it. The shimmery finish was not overwhelming and I love the appearance these eyeshadows gives. Yipee!!!
I hope you could find a similar product at your Daiso Japan in your area if you’re living in Los Angeles or San Francisco or even Seattle. I’m so glad to be able to try this eyeshadow out and love the result I desire.
