Hi everyone, I intended to do a review and swatch of the Visee Glam Glow Eyes in BL-5 but I was in a hurry and didn’t manage to do my eye makeup on Sunday. So here are pictures and swatches of the quad. Review will be updated in this post once I manage to do a look with it ~.~
More pictures of the gorgeous case cover.
#1 is a silvery white grey. I think it’s great as a base color to layer on the blues.
#2 is a turquoise sky-baby blue. I suck at color descriptions and these photograph accurate to swatch, so what you see is what you get.
#3 is a nude that packs on glitter without much color. It is almost invisible on my skin. Brow highlight or as a pop of sparkle in the middle of your lid.
#4 is a black-navy with multi-colored glitter particles. Of these, #4 disappointed me the most as I thought it would have been more navy than black and glittery. I might be wrong after I use the quad though, please keep that in mind.
Of the four colors, #1 and #2 has the best texture and pigmentation. Surprisingly smooth with the fair amount of shimmer / glitter in the powder, not bad for a drugstore brand like Visee. I read that this Glam Glow Eyes is their best collection put out so far to date, at least according to a Taiwanese blogger who has every single palette from the brand, and even though I’m slightly disappointed by the navy blue (it’s the reason why I purchased it in the first place), I shall not judge too harshly and instead play with it for a look first.
Being persistent, I swatched the quad over UDPP again this morning before I left the house and lo & behold, the colors turned up really nice and smooth. I second my initial opinion that the powder is smooth without feeling gritty, but they definitely need a primer. I think this has more to do with the pigment colors of Japanese eyeshadows in general, then it has to do with the quality. #2 is just a mess on my fingers, while #4 looks near-black. I guess if you pile on the navy, it’ll eventually look like midnight with blue glitter particles.
