After I tried the Innisfree Eyeshadow Stick I was curious for more creamy eyeshadows. Originally I planned to buy the Innisfree Mineral Single Cream Shadow, but them I came acroos the A’Pieu Creamy Butter Shadow and I fell for the beautiful packaging design of these cream eyeshadows. Although I’m not a daily eyeshadow wearing person I directly bought two shades from this :D Here is my impression:
First of all, some words about the Korean brand A’Pieu: The name comes from french language and is supposed to mean “basic”. (I didn’t know a word like this in french though and I didn’t find any proper translation. Did anybody else have a look for that?:D) The brand is targeting a younger audience and providing the elemantary steps and products for your skincare routine in the 20s…but I think you can also use it in your 30s or whenever you want :D The packaging of their products is cute and adorable, without being to princess-y, like Etude House, for example. The A’Pieu Creamy Butter Shadows have also a beautiful packaging, which has a vintage flair and looks absolutely adorable. These cream eyeshadow pots are available in five different shades. I chose two of them being No.4 Cranberry Kiss and No.5 French Cocoa.
The cardboard box contains a lot of description, but it is all in Korean unfortunately, except the name of the shade. The eyeshadows have a shelf life of 12 months after openeing. The main ingredients are mango powder, marine collagen, licorice extract and ruby powder.
Inside the cardboard box you’ll find these super pretty jars.
The jars are made of clear hard plastic and a screw-type lid which looks like tin (proberly also plastic). The packaging looks sturdy and of good quality. Although so simple I really love it. It looks classy and elegant on the same time ♥
The cream eyeshadows in the jars look solid and at first glance and not creamy at all, but the formula melts away once you dab your finger onto it. It feels very soft and smooth. The formula is designed to be used with your fingers, so the cream eyeshadow gets the right temperature and blends into your skin properly.
The A’Pieu Creamy Butter Shadows have a good pigmentation. They are easy to blend, but you can also build up the color and make it more intense. Since it is a cream eyeshadow you won’t have any problems with fall-off, either. These eyeshadows have a glossy and pearly finish and are longlasting, too.
I love these two eyeshadows and I love how easy they are to apply ♥. The packaging is beautiful, too, and if you are an eyeshadow lover I can recommend you to try these. If you are an eyeshadow beginner you should try these, too, because of the easy apllication with your fingers. Or try the Innisfree Eyeshadow Stick! The A’Pieu Creamy Butter Shadow retails for 12.51 US$ at W2Bauty.
Did you try any of the eyeshadows from A’Pieu? Which one is your favourite?
