Etude House LUCIDarling Fantastic Gradation Eyes in #4 Full Olive Black

I haven´t purchased any Korean makeup in over a year or even 2... skincare/body care...yea...but not makeup.
I really loved the look of the Etude House LUCIDarling Fantastic Gradation Eyes palette in #4 so I picked it up along with one of my previous Gmarket orders.

Actually most of Etude House´s eyeshadows I tried in the past were rather mediocre, nothing outstanding so I didn´t really expect a lot from the LUCIDarling quad even though packaging- and price-wise (12500 Won!) there seems to be an increase.

The compact of this eyeshadow reminds me of the Sofina Primavista range (that bow!).

The eyeshadows are really super smooth and silky with a beautiful glistening appearance (especially that main lid shade! That´s what I call a molten metal finish!)....and a great dose of pigment! The lightest shade is a bit too glittery as I prefer to balance a sparkly lid with a more muted highlighter but that´s just a personal preference anyway.

Overall I am extremely impressed with the texture and I really love the colors, too! Around US$12 retail price is quite good, too, as that´s less than even most e.g. Kate palette cost =)
The colors in #4 are a light silver, deep gray, glistening off-white and a gorgeous metallic icy green, not really an olive shade, more of a grayed shade. This kind of green is actually quite rare and exactly the shade that flatters someone cool-toned like me best (among greens).

Overall a really good eyeshadow palette, might be too shimmery or loud for some but I really really think it´s darn pretty!

Combined with Lunasol Full Glamour Liquid Lips 07 and JS Mix Blush in Baby.  Blush. The mascara is one from Naris Up but it´s not really that good as you see.

Rating 4.5/5 (Deducting half as I´d like a less glittery highlighter shade)
