As you know, I’m not only a lover of Korean beauty products, but also of Japanese ones. I have the feeling that reviews on Japanese beauty products are rarer in the beauty blogger community, maybe because it is harder to obtain them. I received some more Japanese products lately from a shop called LunaTu, a new online boutique providing genuine Korean and Japanese cosmetics and based in UK – which means fast shipping within Europe! One of the items I received from them is the Shiseido Integrate Suite Trick Eyes, a small three colored eyeshadow palette, available in different colors.
Shiseido is one of the most famous high end brands in the world. I think everybody knows the brand in some way. In Japan, Shiseido has a lot of sub branches. One of these sub branches is Shiseido Integrate. The Shiseido Integrate Suite Trick Eyes palette is available in five different colors. Moreover two limited edition color ranges were available. The eyeshadow palette I’ll show here is BR 314, a milkcoffee brown shaded set of three colors. The palette comes in a outer clear plastic packaging, like most of Japanese products. The packaging contains the description of the product, but it is written in Japanese only. The backside description also shows a picture of how to apply the three colors together on your eyelid. This is helpful for beginners, so they know how to combine the three colors.
The palette itself is really beautiful and designed in such a cute way: The lid has a golden color with a clear plastic window showing the eyeshadows. The lid is decorated by the words “Let your sweet eyes do the talking”. The material is sturdy plastic.
The three eyeshadow colors of the palette have different forms. The eyeshadow placed in the middle is shaped like a heart, whereas the left eyeshadow has the shape of a clover and the right eyeshadow is supposed to be a rose (or a whirly thingy XD). If you open the lid you see that the palette comes with an applicator with two sides. The backside of the lid contains a small mirror, so you can apply the eyeshadow “on-the-go” ;)
The three eyeshadows all have shimmery particles, but the two lighter shades have more shimmer particles than the dark brown shade. Below you see a quick swatch on my fingertips. The eyeshadows have a smooth consistency and are easy to apply and to blend in.
The colors of this eyeshadow palette are light and very natural. You cannot create a bold look with these because the pigmentation is not too strong- probably it is also not designed top be strong to keep a natural look. Using primer before you can make the colors appear more vivid, but still natural. I chose this palette because of the color. I have palettes with golden brwon shades, but nothing in this milkcoffee brown range. It looks really discrete and although the eyeshadows contain shimmer it doesn’t look girly or overdone. Below you see the swatches on my arm with and without primer and how it looks applied on my eyelids. It is suitable for everyday look in my eyes.
I also tried to rubb the eyeshadows away and it was easier for the lighter colors, especially without primer. But the dark brown color has a good staying power. Even after rubbing the swatches it was clearly visible and didn’t smudge. The price for this three-color palette and considering the brand and the quality of the is suitable and costs 12.50 £ on LunaTu. They also ship internationally, but especially people living in Europe might want to check out the shop because the shipping arrives fast. One point I didn’t like about the palette is the applicator. The material of the sponge is quite hard. Maybe there are people preferring this kind of material, but I do not use the applicator, but instead use my own eyeshadow brushes.
Just as a short reminder: All products mentioned and reviewed on this blog are of my personal opinions. This product here was sent to me for reviewing purpose by http://www.lunatu.com/ which doesn’t influence me in providing my honest opinion on the products.
My love for Japanese cosmetics actually started first. But by the time I started blogging, Korean cosmetics were much easier to get online. My main motive is that they’re so much cheaper, haha. However, one of my favourite mascaras is still by Canmake.
Either way, that palette has gorgeous packaging.
Some of the japanese brands aren’t that expansive though…for example Shiseido Senka has some nice and affordable skincare products…but in total I agree, koren products are cheaper and easier to get online. I never tried a mascara by canmake, but I will put it on my to-do list :D
Oh very cute colors~
The packaging is really cute..thanks for the comment, dear ♥
Why do Japanese cosmetics always have to look so cute and pretty? I love the colors in this palette! *-* They look lovely on you ^^ We also have Shiseido here but the packaging is nowhere as nice as this. I haven’t tried Japanese products as much as I’ve tried Korean ones, but maybe I’ll start venturing into that area because the packaging for their makeup is just too adorable. Thanks for the review Fraulein! :D
We have Shiseido in department stores here, too..but they don’T have the branches with the cute packaging either..only the mature and elegant (and expansive) looking products. You should definitively go for some japanese cosmetics, too…I’m sure you would like it! Thanks for your comment!
I actually started off with japanese cosmetics, I think japanese fashion was more popular back then. This palette looks so small and cute! Most of the japanese eyeshadows I have encountered are really light and shimmery, perfect for that dolly look. Thank you for your pretty photos! This looks like a good palette for beginners.
I agree about the point that it is a cute palette for beginners. This is actually my second Japanese eyeshadow palette (the one from Visee is my first one) and I’m really happy about the quality they have. I think they are worth the money you pay for them. Thanks for reading and commenting as usual!♥
Love the design, so cute!, but if they would added a matte eyeshadow would be perfect, too bad the applicator isn’t good for you.
I think the next palette I will buy will be matte, too…:) (I hope MeMeBox Global will get the pony eyepalette they released in Korea). The design is really cute and lovely! Thanks for commenting ♥
I never really got into Japanese beauty products but Shisheido has always been a brand that I’ve been curious of. Too bad that the lighter colours don’t stay on that well without a primer! I honestly expected a little more, especially considering the price tag. Thank you for your review and for sharing the online shop, Fräulein! :)
The pricetag is unfortunately usual for most japanese smaller eyeshadow palette, but I understand you dissapointment. I think japanese eyeshadow brands always try to have very light colors, so that it looks as natural as possible, but nevertheless they love shimmer. I think it is easier for a matte eye shadow to be longlasting than for one with shimmer…but I’m also no expert XD
Thanks for commenting ♥
What a cute little palette!

Oh, die Farben sind ja toll, genau mein Beuteschema :D

Ahhhh this is SO CUTE!! I’m a big fan of Shiseido and if only it were easier getting their other makeup and skincare lines where I live. Lovely review! :D
