Kanebo MFC Eye Color in BR-01

I received a small Kanebo MFC haul recently and posted about it here. As you can read here on Yumeko´s blog the brand´s name is "My Featuring Colors" and can only be purchased in Family Mart convenience stores in Japan. 
The dear Fumiko is offering some items from MFC on her blog which is probably the only place online to get these cosmetics.  

The items are cute and on the inexpensive side but manufactured by cosmetics giant Kanebo.
The packaging feels a bit flimsy since the cases are just made of clear plastic but still I think the things are cute and pretty.
The Eye Color (whatever is actually called as Eye Color are pretty much the only English words I can find lol) is a trio of colors in the typical popular Japanese "gradation" pattern which means 3 complementary shades from the same color family just from light to dark.
I picked up color BR-01 which didn´t overly wow me when I received it as it looked a bit warm and bland. 
I was quite surprised to find that this offers quite a silky and nicely pigmented texture and the colors are very neutral and subtle, perfect for a polished nude eye look. The shades blend beautifully and stay put all day long applied on top my eyelid primer (usually I use either the one from Lunasol or Coffret d´Or).

The lightest shade is an off-white shade with a silky satin finish whereas the medium color is a sparkly light beige which works wonders to brighten up my lids. The darkest color is a medium brown which can be blended very easily into the crease area (for me this is not dark enough for a liner).
Oddly the colors look quite different on my eyes and swatched on my arm.
This makes also a great basic neutral trio to combine with brighter colored liner etc. In the pic below I am wearing this trio along with my Esprique Precious Matte Lasting Cream Eyeliner in BL901 which I purchased back in summer 2008.
Mascara is the Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl Mascara. Liners are from Dolly Wink (upper lid) and Heroine Make Pencil Eyeliner in 01 Black.
Overall a nice product albeit not unique or very outstanding color-wise. If you are looking for a very cute neutral palette at an affordable price and that´s a bit hard to get thus somewhat special then this is a good pick.
