Banila Co Fall 2008: Two Eyes Shadow in #27 De La Couture

Banila Co's fall look is right up my alley: Smokey taupe/brown eyes and light nude pink lips.
Their collection theme is "De la Couture" with pretty lace prints on their fall items.

I was totally thrilled to see a 6 pan eyeshadow palette but unfortunately it was out of stock about 2 days after its release and took about a month to be back in stock. I have ordered it meanwhile but haven't received it yet (oh and it's OOS again now)
However, I got one of the 2 fall eyeshadow duos, #27 De La Couture about a week ago and have to say that it's a really pretty duo.

The Two Eyes Shadows are some of the nicest baked Korean eyeshadow duos, they're very similar to Cathy Cat's Glitz Ball Shadows so they offer a silky pigmented texture with a pretty shimmery metallic finish.

I have collected a bunch of the Two Eyes Shadows and the new #27 De la Couture duo is one of the prettiest of them (I really would like to write a general review on the Two Eyes Shadows soon...)

The case of the shadows is quite simple, a round pot with a screw-on cover. The size is rather large so one eyeshadow duo should last you quite a while.
It's a baked-type shadow duo and there are also singles available if you prefer (however they are a bit harder and they are marbled so you can get more colors out of 1 shade).

Anyway, #27 contains a pretty silver taupe and a silvery beige and the colors work together so nicely. The colors are in fact similar to Lavshuca's Dual Eyes BR-2 but Banila Co's darker shade is more silver than Lavshuca's dark brown.

The Two Eyes Shadows retail for 8500 Won so they're a great deal for little money.
I got mine from eBay seller rumistyle for about US$12.50 or so (the only Gmarket seller shipping Banila Co worldwide I know of doesn't stock this yet).
I also wanted to get #28 Versailles which contains a warmer taupe and a yellow cream shade but it's also OOS now =(
