Spring 2009: Kose Visee Blackish Forming Eyes in B-1 & B-5

Since I really was (and am) delighted with the new Blackish Forming Eyes from Visee in B-3 I ordered 2 more palettes when I saw them listed on Adambeauty.com (US$20/each...B-3 and B-5 are currently sold out though!). Ichibankao sells these for US$25/each incl. shipping and all colors are in stock.


I settled on B-1 (a neutral brown quad) and B-5 which looked like a gorgeous muted teal/aqua quad.

I won't go into details regarding packaging and texture as you can read about it here.


B-1 is a chocolate/dark brown combo which looks a little as if it would clash at first.


But the colors go together well and I am very happy with the overall result. I have to add that the colors in this palette are a little harder to blend than in the other 2 palettes.


The colors are a light yellow gold, warm reddish brown, dark chocolate brown and black.

B-5 looks rather muted when you look at it in the pan but the colors come out well pigmented and rather bright.


The aqua color is also more unique than it looks on the pics. It flashes gold so it looks a little more green in real life. The darker blue, while it looks like a bland navy in the pan, has green tones, too, so it harmonizes perfectly with the aqua.


The other colors are a super sheer pale bluish white (the sheerest color in the 3 Blackish Forming Eyes I have) with little glitters and deep black.


All in all B-5 is definitely worth checking out as it's a rather pretty and interesting palette. B-1 is nice but if you have many neutral shadows you can safely skip this.
B-2 seems to be a more golden brown palette and B-4 features soft pinks.

I absolutely love the reddish sparkles of the B-1 but I was not aware that the other ones blended better (I just have the B-1)

By the way, I nominated you in my list of Fave Beauty bloggers. You are such an inspiration and I could not skip your site. It is one of the first blogs I visit when checking blogs....(http://birkinbagbeauty.blogspot.com/2009/02/nominated-and-nominator-triple-award.html)
