[Review] Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Palette No.01 Brown [コージー本舗 ドーリーウインク]


Peekaboo namagashi!!

The brown or earthy brown tones is really pretty to almost everybody, I do also think brownish tones can suit my total complexion, thus having an eyeshadow with brown tones would be right up my alley..because whenever I wear a brown tones eyeshadow my friends will always compliment it because it will makes my eyes look more bigger, larger, and on top of that looks pretty natural.

I've been a fan of Tsu-chan (Tsubasa Masuwaka) since a long time ago and to be frank, I've collected a lot of her Dolly Wink eyelahses because they're too pretty & cute that I can't resist!! But so far never bought other products from Dolly Wink apart from just her eyelashes. I could say this is my first time using their eyeshadow, though I know this already existed in the market before and even now with the new packaging. (some of the old version eyeshadows is now discontinued) Dolly Wink's eyeshadow palette is quite popular too, that's why I chose to try it.

It just comes with that simple bulky packaging, yet still looks adorable because there's a Tsu-chan's face on it!

I really like how pretty and fun-sized the packaging is, the small round packaging is really lightweight and indeed a travel-friendly too, the swirls details on it also illustrate the femininity of a girl and it looks super super lovely! Moreover, the transparent heart on top of the palette with a "Dolly Wink" print looks so gorgeous & fantasy because we can see the colors of the eyeshadow inside the palette. How nice it is isn't it!

But one thing to remind you girls is this palette comes with no mirror at all as your "Mr.assistant", so you need to have a small mirror with you if you want to use it anywhere.

Each of the Dolly Wink eyeshadows comes in 4 colors. The small dual function applicator is also very convenient for the girls on the go, one side with a normal oval sponge tip for the wide application on the eyelid, and another side is more pointy which is to be used at the inner or outer corner of the eyes.

Each of their eyeshadows are normally labelled from the left as it goes from "A" to "D". This eyeshadow is real soft!! I rarely encounter a soft typed eyeshadow at the moment but this one is just so soft and stunningly high pigmented in color! One swatch can already resulted in an intense look! I is damn loving this! Each colors and the applicator hole is placed just neatly too.

The swatch of this palette

A- Light caramel Shade (Apply it on the whole eyelids to balance out the color)

B- Light gold shimmery shade (For the inner corner of the eyes or along the eye bag to accentuate the innocent look that was popularized by Korean actresses & Kyary Pamyu Pamyu since last year)

C- Warm burgundy brown shade (I usually blend it out on my crease to create a depth which can makes my eyes looks more bigger, or at the outer corner)

D- Dark greyish shade (It looks like so but when you apply it on the skin it will looks dark brown in color and you can blend it out on the outer crease for a more depth detail)

Other than specified, of course you can use it in anyway you like.
I tried to wear it for the whole day to see how long the shades from the eyeshadow can last on my eyelids and I can say that it can stay up to 5 hours before it start to be oxidized and less seen (Depends on skin types whether you're dry or oily). You can make the color stay more longer by wearing an eye primer.

Koji Dolly Wink eyeshadow palette comes in a 3 different shades, No.01 Brown, No.02 Pink Brown and No.03 Smoky Brown.

This is how you can create the Tsu-chan's natural brown eye makeup, you can refer to the color's codes on above to be more clear with the application tips.

And taddah! This is how the final look will looks like. In this photo, I wore an EOS 3 tones Pink contacts, with a Koji Dolly Wink Eyelash in 102 Pure Chocolate (click [HERE] for the lashes review), it is a demi lashes.

Sorry if the photo is not that clear, I did't have a time to take a proper photo so I just cropped the photo I found in my PC where I was wearing the eyeshadow on my eyes for the class..gomenasai hehe

Nevertheless the point is to show the colors when it was applied on the eyes.
Pretty brown tones they have don't they?
