Several weeks ago, I won an awesome giveaway from Dave Lackie. It was for a bunch of Shiseido things, like the Ibuki Skincare Trio, and this Palette.
Today I wanted to share about the Eye Color Bar Eye Shadow Palette.
I was pretty excited to get this, because I had seen some of the swatches. But it seems I got a dud. Just my luck. The swatches are actually taken heavily, and yet they are still VERY sheer. So when I use them, I actually use a thicker cream product to pat the shadow on to, so they look more vibrant.
Here the upper swatches are without a primer, and the lower swatches are over NYX Jumbo Pencil. You can see that they need help if you want to have a more vibrant look. I rubbed the shadow on over the NYX, but you get a better result if you pat it on.
So I have to say that I was pretty disappointed overall. I mean I do like Shiseido. There is a reason why my mom has dedicated a majority of her needs to Shiseido for more than 25 years. But I would stay personally stay clear of this, as I cannot justify the $58 price tag. Again it could be that mine just was drier than the usual…hopefully if you check it out, it will be better for you.
You can find it at The Bay for $58CAN
