On the Spot: Kissywear Single Eyeshadows



How I came across this product? I went to Cherryculture.com for the first time around May 2008 to check there cosmetics stuffs (This is also the first time I heard of NYX products) I already picked the item I would like to buy, but before I go checked out, I saw the "Free Shipping over $40" and at that time I got like $32 worth of item. So I was like "OK, 8 more dollars for free shipping.... hmm....why not take advantage of this duh". So I did...I looked for the cheapest item I could find and I landed on these. At that time I was also just starting with my makeup obsession, so getting eyeshadows as cheap as $2 (yes, 2 bucks each) would be a good start :)

My thoughts? (Ok... so, I decided to change this part from my usual novel-like review if you know what I'm saying ^^. I decided to do a "PROS and CONS" list instead; I just think it's easier to read and more straight to the point, although most likely It won't be as concise as I would like it to be lol )

PROS
  • Texture is creamy and soft- This has got to be my favorite e/s when it comes to texture (stila second). I am just obsess with the texture it's not even funny; everytime I use these eyeshadows, I swatch them on the back of my hand even if its not necessary.
  • Highly Pigmented- You know when you swatch an eyeshadow sometimes, you have to rub/swatch it a couple of times to get the color pay off. With these eyeshadows, you just need 1 or 2 rubs/swatch (I used circular motion) to get the color show. In these pictures, I swatched each eyeshadows using 1-2 strokes of my finger (minimal pressure) and swatch it on my arm 2x maximum.


Fr L to R: Highlight, Copper, Dove, Natural (LOVE THIS! Good for Highlight)



Fr L to R: Winter Green, Pearl, Mint

  • Sleek packaging- I love how these eyeshadows come in thin pots; they are very compact and can easily fit through any makeup bags and/or purses.
  • You can't beat the price :) 2 bucks y'all... go try it.

CONS

  • Breaks easily :( - OK... I can't really justify this. I am the type of person that when I get home, I just throw my purse/school bag either on the floor or bed. Maybe this was the reason why I chipped off 2 of my shadows.


But anyways, yes, 2 of my eyeshadows are chipped... hopefully it was more of my fault and not the quality of the product. (But again, 2 bucks, u can't complain)

  • A little bit chalky- yes it is. so beware of fallouts.
  • Can only be purchase at cherryculture.com- This is not really a con, but I wish it is something that can be purchased at drugstores such as CVS, walgreens, etc.

aaannd that's about it. If you are someone who is just starting with makeup I really really recommend these eyeshadows you guys =) Check cherryculture.com and take advantage of there free shipping on orders $40 or more.
