Banila Co Winter 2008: The Secret Glam Part1 - The Secret Glam Shadows 101 & 102

I am slowly testing out my new Banila Co items so it's time to review the first 2 items: The Secret Glam Shadows in 101 Glam and 102 Egoist (no other colors available).

I really love these! The shadows come in little square boxes with 4 little blocks of color/shadow. However I consider these as duos as there are only 2 different shades per compact. The individual color blocks are large enough to pick the colors up comfortably with my brushes.

The Secret Glam Shadows are baked so the level of pigment is medium except for the black color which is richly pigmented.
The 2 shades in color #101 have a very fine shimmery/metallic finish whereas color #102 consists of a softly shimmery black and shimmery white with fine glitter pieces.

These stay on very well and apply like a dream. I really heart them!

The colors are:
101 Glam: This contains a light silver taupe and a soft mauve pink.

102 Egoist: Black and white

I find the 2 duos work together so nicely! They make a perfect quad together!

The retail price is 12000 Won (about US$8) so they're really a good bang for your buck IMO.

I'll review the other items soon.

I know you got it through ebay~ so how much did you pay for them? I am wondering how much the price is hiked up and whether it's worth it?

there's so many banila co. items i wanted to try, one of them being the primer - have you tried it??? just curious.

I think I paid US$14 or so?

I tried the Makeup Essence primer. It goes on clear but makes my skin very smooth so makeup looks even and applies well =D
