VOV Castledew Fall 2008: Diacut Cheeks

I am really loving my Castledew Diacut Eyes...they're some of the best eyeshadow palettes I purchased so far. Of course I was thrilled when I spotted VOV's newest addition to the Castledew range: the Diacut Cheeks.

The Diacut Cheeks palette is a baked-type blusher palette consisting of 9 colors. It comes in the same pretty dark silver compact like the eye and lip palettes. Currently there is only one color available (C901). I hope they might add a pressed-type blusher to the lineup (as they have a baked and a pressed eyeshadow palette, too).

The blush palette has good (about sheer-medium) pigment and offers a pretty shimmery (almost metallic but not glittery) finish. The color varies depending how you swirl your brush across the compact. If you swirl more to the left side the finish will be pinker whereas it ends up being more peachy if you go right. Or if you swirl upwards it will be can mix and match as you wish =)

The individual colors can definitely be used as eyeshadows if you like wearing pinks and oranges on your eyes.

The colors in the palette are:
From left to right.
Top row: Pure Pink, Pink Platinum, Orange Dia
Middle: Love Pink, Rose Pink Dia, Planet Orange
Bottom: Love Holic, Rose Holic, Peach Holic

The Diacut Cheeks is very inexpensive at about US$8-9 for your palette and it's worth every cent in my opinion.
VOV put out another winner in my opinion and I highly recommend the blush palette!

By general request I took swatches of the blusher (I also added swatches to the Diacut Eyes post).
The first pic shows all colors individually swatched, the 2nd shows 2 possible color combinations you can achieve by swirling your brush either on the pink or on the peachy side.

Hi Kathi - did you get this blusher from GMarket as well? Do you mind telling me who the seller is? I love the colors in this palette!

Kathi! You are killing my wallet! hahaha

I want this!

Hey Kathi,

I just found Castledew at a store in Singapore yesterday but sadly no sign of the Diacut palettes. I'm very tempted to order them from GMarket after seeing your reviews but not too keen to be overcharged for shipping and having GMarket keep my money for a future purchase. Do you have any advice?

Do you have a pic of you wearing it on your hand or face so that we can see how sheer or pigmented they are?

hi Kathi, I'm tempted by your review about vov, banila co, tony moly, beauty credit..

can u give me some suggestion for what items should I get since it is my 1st venture into all these brand?

You know what I think? Gmarket should pay you some commission!! You deserve something....I think I might hassle those people in Customer Service...AGAIN!

Kathi said...

Oh why? Any new problems occured?
Well, I wouldn't mind if Gmarket wants to pay me something :P

Unknown said...


WHY?? Because you have done them a massive service with all your super useful info on how to order etc.

I think I should tell them about you! You need a prize!
