Banila Co is a cute Korean brand with a rather small but pretty assortment of items.
I think the quality is quite good and the items are affordable.
The first thing I usually try out from a brand I am not familiar with are their eyeshadows, especially palettes if available as I am not so much into singles.
So I purchased some of Banila Co's eyeshadow duos, 2 singles, a lipstick and an eyelid primer to get a good impression of the brand.
-Two Eyes Eyeshadows:
I love all sort of baked products like blushes, highlighters and eyeshadows. Two Eyes Eyeshadows are baked duos with a great texture and shimmer so they just look beautiful when applied.
26 Floral Bouquet: Spring 2008 color duo. This is a bit harder than the other duos but still has good color pay-off. Also this comes in a pink compact instead of black. Pretty pink/light aqua duo.
22 Midnight Castle: My favorite duo. A very sparkly dark silvery charcoal and a sparkly pink.
08 Fall in NY: Pearly olive green and golden beige. Perfect for fall I guess!
13 Miss Daisy: Sheerest color out of the lot. A light pink and lavender.
-Eyelights Shadows: Single shadows in the same style packaging as Shu Uemura. I have 2 colors #14 Ocean Navy - a very pigmented dark blue and #15 Gray Grace - a light-medium silver gray.
-Kiss Collector Shimmer Stick: A pretty lipstick in bright bubblegum pink but it applies very sheer on my lips so it just gives a gorgeous light soft pink gloss to my lips. The color I have is SPK541. It's a little bit drying though so it's not the most fantastic lipstick out there.
-Eye Love Eye Primer: This has become a daily staple for me. It's a concealer duo formulated specially for the fragile eye area. It has a good concealing strength but it's smooth enough to spread it easily. Both colors work perfectly with my pale complexion which is a surprise since the darker color looks so dark in the pan I was hesitant to try it. A definite repurchase for me!
Price-wise Banila Co is not too expensive. The eyeshadow duos cost about US$8 or so /each. The lipstick and primer are a bit pricier.
