Inexpensive Beauty Find: Tiffa Gradation Eyeliner

Tiffa is a small drugstore brand produced by Kanebo and offers a small but nice selection of makeup and skincare/sun lotions.
Their eye makeup only contains a few liners and mascaras and I think they have a silver/gold glitter eyeshadow duo, too.

Recently I found those new "Gradation Eyeliner" powder duos on Adambeauty and decided they looked nice and worth to pick up.

The purpose of those duos of a very deep liner and a slightly lighter powder shadow is to achieve a gradually shaded smokey eye.

I ordered both colors, DB & BR (browns) and BK & GY (black/gray). I am very happy with BK & GY but not so impressed with DB & BR.

Each duo comes in a cute black/pink mirrored compact (I forgot to take a pic of the closed compact, lol!) with an included applicator (with a pointy sponge-tip on one side and a good soft brush on the other).

The 2 liner shades are matte and on the dry site. The black one is decently pigmented whereas the dark brown one takes a few layers.
The lighter shades have a shimmery finish and softer texture, especially the gray which is really pretty and pigmented.

All in all I like the gray/black duo as it really lets me create an intense smokey eye. I am not so fond of the brown as the colors are a bit too warm/golden and sheerer.
However if you want a decent brown eyeshadow duo to create a softer day look this is a great choice.

I think I paid US$11 per duo which is really inexpensive for a Japanese brand.

For the EOTD I used the gray on my lids, the black to line (but I also used Kate Supersharp) and 2 colors from my new Castledew palette reviewed below.

Kanebo sure has a couple of "sub brands", eh? $11 for a Jap cosmetics sure is a steal! and i think it has good color pay-off, too.

love your EOTD's, Kathi.
