VOV is a Korean brand which didn't get a lot of attention from me until recently when I saw their gorgeous makeup line called Castledew. I had tried this brand 2 years or so ago, ordered some of their Color Song palettes and a couple of trios and they were alright but somehow the packaging was too ugly and cheap looking so I just put them aside and didn't use them. But as soon as I spotted their Castledew Color Shot Eyes palettes I thought of giving the brand a new try.
I ended up ordering 4 of the eye palettes and they're really gorgeous! The texture of the shadows is quite soft and silky, color pay-off is good, about medium pigment that can be intensified with layering. There is no chunky glitter in the colors, just a pretty soft pearly shimmer.
The compacts are so pretty, they remind me of a cross between Jill Stuart and Kose Esprique Precious.
I believe there are about 6 palettes available. I skipped the pastel and blue colors.
-01 Daring Romance: Pretty and feminine combination of cream, pink, purple and taupe.
-03 White Silver: White, pale pink, light silver and medium silver. The pink could have been a bit more vibrant as it's very similar to the white.
-GD240 Mystic Gold: White, peach gold and dark brown.
-VL330 Midnight Violet: Gorgeous combination of iridescent white/pink, silver, lilac and darker purple. I paid about US$35/palette on ebay but these retail for less than US$20 in Korea.
