If I would pick a favourite for this month it would definitively be the Kose Visee Glossy Rich Eyeshadow Palette that I’ve bought recently. As some of you might know, Kose is a Japanese cosmetic brand with various subbrands. Visee is one of their subbrands, having a couple of nicely designed makeup products. I love the colors and I love the design of this mini palette and- most important- I used it so often already, although I’m normally not wearing eyeshadows a lot. But this cute palette sweept me off my feet. I’m not an expert in eyeshadow reviewing, and I’m sure there are other eyeshadows with a excellent quality, but never the less I would like to share my opinion about it. ♥
A lot of people will understand why I fell for this packaging design. It is super elegant and yet playfull. I love the ornamented lid so much ♥ The brandname is written in a curly font on the lid, too. The fabricant plastic is of standard quality. It is glossy, so you’ll see fingerprints on it easily. The palette comes in a hard plastic packaging with description written on it. Unfortunately all the description is written in Japanese, but there is an image on the backside showing how to use the colors together.
Let’s take another look at the beauty: The imprint on the eyeshadows is so beautiful ♥
Kose Visee’s Glossy Rich eyes are available in 8 different palettes. My palette is No. 3 and it has a rose/burgundy Theme. The palette consists of four eyeshadow colors which can be used together nicely. A small applicator with two sides is provided, too, but no mirror.
The pigmentation of the colors is nice and visible. They contain tiny shimmer particles. The brightest color on the top left is the base color providing the glow. The eyeshadows are soft when applied and are easily blendable. The pigmentation is buildable to a certain degree, too. Below you can see how the eyeshadows look on me:
You can create nice looks with this palette and the colors are really wearable for every day look. But they also can be used for a romantic look. I really love how easy they are to blend and how soft the eyeshadow powder feels. The shimmer is not too extreme either. After a couple of uses unfortunatelly the nice imprint on the shadows dissapears and a little fall off from the eyeshadows lies inside the lid, but all in all these are minor points. I’ll definitively keep my eyes out for other Kose Visee products in future. This was my first time trying this brand, but not my last :D I bought my palette at Ichibankao for 2050 Yen which makes around 20 US$
