T'Estimo Grande Shine Eyes - A Palette to Remember

Cosmetic companies are starting to understand and realize consumers are pickier and know what we want. We want convenience and portability without sacrificing anything on the aesthetics. Products should deliver results fast and without alot of fuss!

Look at this beautiful eye shadow compact from T'Estimo (a line from Kanebo) for example. It comes with everything we need for eye makeup application. It even comes with instructions on application (see picture below) conveniently on a transparent piece of plastic. The plastic fits on top of each section to illustrate their application. The compact itself is silver and light purple with a latch that clicks when shutting.

I got the compact in 01, which is beautifully shimmery (without grittiness), as well as suitable for a natural everyday look.

Numbers on the application sheet:

- (pale cream) this one is an eye shadow base. It gives something for the shadows and liners to adhere to and helps them stay put longer.

2 - (pale pink with shimmer) this is applied next, to areas of the eye you would like to highlight. Most of the time, this is applied above the lashline up to the crease.

3 - (chocolate cream with shimmer) this is applied into the crease to give our eyes more depth. It can also be used on the lower lashline.

4 - (deep brown) this is a cream eye liner which can be used on the upper and lower lashline.

Brilliant right? There is no more juggling with different jars and applicators of bases, shadows or liners. To top all of this off, the compact comes with pretty good quality brushes. Eventhough I personally don't use sponge eye shadow applicators, the fine-tip eye liner brush in this compact is one of the best I've used.

Now I want to hear from you what you favorite shade of eye shadow is and which one(s) are you wearing today?

Hi Seeker!
I admire you so much because you are so brave!

Oh wow the infamous Parrot! I would really love to see how you rock that look. Can you share some pictures?

Haha! That sounds like easy and so good! Have you go any pictures of that look to share?

I have such a soft spot for Japanese made palettes. There's something so girly about them.

Thanks you guys/gals for dropping by!

Lots of love,

Hi Grayburn~ I saw the CF of this product sometime early this year. Where did you get your set of eyeshadow from? Japan direct? I like the one that had the bronze/nude/gold color

Hi Yumegokochi :)
You can buy this compact from adambeauty. The bronze one(compact 03) has nice warm colors that would be so very pretty for Asian skin tones. Let me know what you think once you've tried it!
Thanks for dropping by!
