Spring 2009: Esprique Precious True Impact Eyes T1 & T3

I am quite a fan of Beaute de Kose Esprique Precious as they have some truly gorgeous items in their range. E.g. their gel liners (teal and the metallic purple/gray one), their lipsticks and also their eyeshadows are really good quality.

So for me it was certain that I wanted to try out their new eyeshadow quads for Spring called "True Impact Eyes". The True Impact Eyes comes in 4 colors of which 2 caught my eye: T-1 (a brown/pink combo) and T-3 (pink/purples).
The texture is a bit rough and makes the shadows a bit harder to blend unlike their previous palettes which contained very silky shadows.

2 of the shadows are super sheer (the lighter shades) but the 2 main colors are well pigmented, especially the liner.
I believe the matte base shade on the bottom of the quad is a cream shade but it has a weird texture, somewhere between cream and powder.

I really love that the shadows have a quite pretty shimmery finish so they're not dull or boring at all.
The staying power leaves a little to be desired. I experienced slight creasing and fading after about 4 hours of wearing the purple quad (but none with the T-1 quad even though I used the same base).


This is a combo of a white base, peachy pink, warm pink brown and very deep brown.

This looks quite pretty. Oddly on my swatch pic the 2nd darkest shade looks like a muddy brown but it's more of a pinky taupe when applied on my eye.


White base, baby pink, warm lilac and deep dark blue-toned purple.

The lilac turns pink on me so I can't use this on my lid. I love the darkest purple as it's very gorgeous but all in all the quad has poorer staying power and is a bit harder in texture than T-1.

All in all these quads aren't the best release from Esprique Precious and for 3675 Yen they should be much better in my opinion.
I'd rather pick up a new Aube Couture quad!

Thanks to my friend Iris I only paid retail for the quads =)
