I love dark gray/smokey eyeshadow palettes. For some reason darker eye colors look good on me (better than very light ones). I love the definition and dramatic look they can give.
Those kind of palettes aren't really that "spring" though so I was astonished to see that Visee dedicated a whole eye palette line to the color black.
The Blackish Forming Eyes are a new style of palettes containing a deep black and 3 color shadows.
I actually wanted more of the palettes but got B-3 first from ichibankao to see how I'd like it. Also I wanted to wait to see these listed on Adambeauty before I indulge in more colors (I ordered 2 more now as they're on the site hehe).
The Blackish Forming Eyes come in pretty glossy black compacts with a snake pattern with a clear window in the middle so you can see the colors through.
The texture is really good! These shadows are rather silky and well pigmented with very little powder fall-out. The shimmer is gorgeous but not extremely OTT in my opinion (well, I am used to shimmery shadows and LOVE them!)
The box comes with instructions how to use the shadows. I used them a little differently though.
(EOTD: Dark silver shade on outer 1/3 of my lids and blended into the crease, lighter silver on inner 2/3 of my lids. Black in the outer V and on lower lashline, blended a bit into the crease. Lighter silver on browbone, white right under brows blending out the lighter silver).
The colors are a shimmery off-white, silver gray, darker silver gray (just a little darker than the other shade) and intense matte black with scattered sparkles. In the pan the black looks like the darkest and most intense black I ever found in an eyeshadow. When swatched it's a regular matte off-black (lol).
These retail for 1680 Yen in Japan (about US$19). Adambeauty just listed these at US$20/each.
