[REVIEW] Etude House Play Color Eyes #SoChic Palette

Hi there guys!
How have you been?Hopefully all of you are fine.

It's a middle of the night and I just got a message saying that my wifi limit reached 0.0
Just about I'm going to post this but never mind that, I could purchase a new one tomorrow.

So today, I'm going to review this limited edition palette from Etude House. I actually did not plan to buy this at all but earlier this year, Etude House Korea did an amazing sales which this palette got 30% off from the total price and it made the  price went down so much that I couldn't resist..haha

Another reason probably because I read a review for the palette before and the colors looks so much prettier than the promo pictures. I was pleased with the previous &Rose palette that I reviewed here and I believe that this palette won't disappoint me either.

Product Info :
Name : Etude House Play Color Eyes (So Chic)
Production : Made in Korea
Price : RM48+/- (sales price)

Every colors has its own name :D

The swatches turns out so nice except for the No.9(Sparkling Wine). It actually looks different than the one in the palette. I could say that it almost looks purple to me when applied on eyes but still have a hint of pink.

As you can see, No.2,3,7,8,9 are glittery eyeshadows. It causes fall outs so I really recommend you to apply eyeshadows first because applying your bb cream or foundation. No.1 and 6 are not matte in color, they're not sparkly either but you can see a bit of shine there and as for No.4,5 and 10, they're totally matte in colors.

I could say that most of the colors are very pigmented and buttery in texture. It makes the application so much easier. Just like &Rose palette, this one also had the sheer-matte colors as well. It is the No.4(French Kiss) and No.5(Misty Rose) and these colors are also much similar with the previous palette including No.6(Diva).It took me a few swatches to achieve the No.4&5 because the colors didn't show up well.

No.10 looks black in the picture, and I'm so sorry for that. It is actually a very dark brown in color and very pigmented. It is one of the color that I like in the palette because I don't have to keep re-apply to get the desired intensity.

For No.7(Glam Forest), there's something unique about this color. Because of the flash, the color on palette above shows that it really looks a bit greener than silver but in real (natural light), you can't actually see the green color. As for applying on the eyes, it does came out in a bit green in color.

Based on the swatches picture, except for No.9(Sparkling Wine) and No.10(Leopard Brown), all the colors totally looks the same when applied on the eyes. As I said about the lighting mistake that the No.10 turns a bit darker than it should be but No.9(Sparkling Wine) is really different when I swatch it. It looks like it's not really dark in color but it is actually looks a bit purple with a hint of pink when applied. A bit disappointed because it doesn't looks as in the palette but I'm quite like the color when it comes to burgundy-romantic make up. I did one below but the colors didn't show up well because of the lighting problem. Sorry for that ;(

Overall, this palette is really gorgeous. I still have to figure out on how to suit the No.8(Midnight Star) with other colors though..haha
