One of my favourite brands for Korean lip products is Aritaum! I loved their Wannabe Cushion Tints, their world Glam Tint and since I received the Water Sliding Tints I almost use these every single day (review upcoming). Apart from lip products I’ve always been curious about other Aritaum products, which is why I decided to try the Aritaum Mono Eyes eyeshadows starting off with a shade called “Take That”. This shade is supposed to be similar to MAC’s eyeshadow “Honey Lust”. Since I don’t have any Mac eyeshadows I cannot compare the two shades, but I can show you some swatches at least.
Aritaum is a Korean brand which belongs to the Amore Pacific family. First time I came into contact with this brand was through the Aritaum Wannabe Cushion Tints, which I fell in love with at first site. Their beautiful and colorful design was something special and new to me. Although Aritaum has quite some cute and girly designed packaging they also do have more mature looking products. The design of the Aritaum Mono Eyes for example is very simple and reminds of MAC packaging. These single eyeshadow pans can also be removed from their packaging and arranged into empty palettes, so you can create your own eyeshadow palette. There are more than 90 different shades available, so there is a huge variety. Apart from so many different colors the texture is also different. There are baked, wet processed, cream, pressed glitter, pressed satin glitter, and pressed matte eyeshadows. I selected Aritaum Mono Eyes eyeshadow No. 35 “Take That”, which is a pressed glitter eyeshadow.
This eyeshadow is a copper colored, shimmering eyeshadow with a warm undertone. It has a good pigmentation and looks nice even without an eyeshadow base. Although it is a glitter eyeshadow it doesn’t have any fallout and stays long on the lid. The container is made of plastic with a clear plastic window in the lid, so you see which color you are grabbing if you have more than one eyeshadow from this collection.
Although I do not wear eyeshadow often I discovered that I use this eyeshadow a lot. I love to combine it with the Innisfree Shadow Pencil in “Milk Tea” als base color and Aritaum Mono Eyes “Take That” for the crease. Since using the Innisfree Shadow Pencil is super easy and quick this look can be created fast, which is why I really like it.
I’m really happy with Aritaum Mono Eyes “Take That” eyeshadow. It is a beautiful copper shade and is not overly glittery, which makes it wearable on a daily basis as point color for example. Since there are so many different eyeshadow colors and types available for the Aritraum Mono Eyes I can recommend you to take a look at the full range. If you are looking for a specific color I’m sure you’ll find something due to the high variety. I also like the fact that you can build your own eyeshadow palette if you want. Moreover, the eyeshadows are quite affordable. They retail for 5000 Won at Aritaum. I bought my shade from W2Beauty for 6.49 US$, but it is also available on testerkorea for 4500-6300 Won depending on the shade you choose. Did you try any of the Aritaum Mono Eyes eyeshadows? Do you have a favourite color? I would like to try some of the matte shades in future.
