Banila Co. keeps releasing their gorgeous eyeshadow palettes. The most previous one was the "De La Couture II" palette which I really adore a lot. I skipped the spring and summer palettes though as they were either too colorful or pastel for my taste.
While the De La Couture II palette contained a cream shadow base the Deep The Night Multi Eye Kit contains 5 powder shadows and a black cream/gel liner.
The compact is a bit boring this time around, just a deep blue with tons of red, purple and golden glitter. It looks nice but I´d have liked it to look like the box it comes in which is gorgeous (and for a Trekkie like me just right hehe).
Away from that the compact is sturdy and high quality metal and comes with a mirror and a (crappy) applicator (mine fell apart already so I don´t touch it anymore).
The shadows are on the harder side but with a silky touch and great color pay-off. Just right in my opinion as I am not a fan of overly powdery shadows. The finish is shimmery or metallic, 2 colors (the 2nd from left and the 3rd from right) have a pearl finish.
The colors all harmonize perfectly! Included are:
deep charcoal (very pigmented), deep grayish blue with a lilac tinge (very pretty, a bit sheerer than the rest), cool blue with a lilac tinge, off-white (sheerer thus makes a nice subtle highlighter), light silver and a black gel liner.
The gel liner lasts well (pretty much all day long) and is easy to apply.
This is a great smokey eye palette in my opinion and I especially like the 2 blues which are like nothing I have in my stash already (and I have about every color of the rainbow really!)
Costs 22000 Won (about US$19). I got mine from ebay and received free shipping, a lipgloss and a few samples and face masks. Seller is rumistyle.
