When I first noticed that Banila Co released a shadow palette for fall containing 6 pretty neutrals in a super pretty case I was super excited. So I sent an email to my usual Korean seller to ask her to buy it for me. To my greatest disappointment she emailed me back 2 days later telling me the palette was sold out =( The palette was gone within just 3 days after being listed on the site! (I got the Two Eyes Shadow in #27 De La Couture instead so please read here)
Anyway, almost a month later I noticed the palette showed in stock on the website (which I checked daily as I am a sucker hehe) so I made sure to be quick in snatching it up. I was lucky that the CPer was able to order it for me as just a few days later it showed "out of stock" again (she told me that the palette is VERY popular in Korea right now and they're behind in the production) =)
The De La Couture Palette Shadow was very worth the excitement and hunting down as it is a really pretty and versatile shadow palette (if you like browns/neutrals).
It comes in the most adorable box with a colorful lace design which the case picks up but in black print. The case is very heavy, sturdy and durable so the shadows are housed safely (it's very similar to some of MAC's LE palettes)
The eyeshadows are pigmented and silky and blend effortlessly. There are 6 pretty neutrals in the palette: 2 highlighters (cream and champagne), 2 light colors (rose and peachy brown) and 2 dark liners/definining colors (black with golden/greenish sparkles and neutral brown). All shadows have a pearly shimmer finish except for the black one which has a matte base with fine glitters (they don't really show up that much though so it's very wearable for work).
I love how I can do a super simple neutral eye or a smokey sultry look =D
The retail price of the palette is 22000 Won (about US$15-16). I paid a bit more but enjoy the palette so much it was very worth it to me.
There was also a special offer from Banila Co's website of a Kiss Collector lipstick sampler as GWP... really pretty colors (I believe I do have 2 of them already lol)
