On my quest to the perfect nude eyeshadow palette, I have found this little trio a few months ago and fell in love with it ever since. I'm talking about the Holika Holika Holy Deer eyeshadow in the shade no.1 Pink Brown. Doesn't it look lovely? There's even a little deer on it, and you know I love deers. This blog is called the little deer for a reason after all!
Kpoptown.com kindly offered me this product to share my thoughts about it with you. I think it's such a cool website - they sell the best Korean cosmetics brands (A'pieu, Etude House, Lioele, Missha, Skinfood and lots of others), but also circle lenses, jewelry, clothes, accessories and even k-pop CDs!
As you can see, the trio comes in a little tin, just like the Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek blushes (approx 5cm wide). More or less, they're the same size. The tin is sturdy, and the cap doesn't look like it's going to fall out if you throw this eyeshadow in your bag. Unfortunately, I didn't take a photo of it, but this product comes with a little sponge applicator which can always be handy!
Unlike 99% of Asian brand eyeshadows, these eyeshadows are matte. Unfortunately, the colours show up very poorly. They're not pigmented at all; maybe they'd work better with a damp brush.
The shades are pinkish brown (nice for defining the crease area), a medium warm brown, a champaigny beige colour which is a bit chalky but it's a good browbone highlighter/inner corner shade.
These couldn't work for a night out smokey eye, but they'd be perfect for a daytime effortless neutral look. Exactly what I look in a eyeshadow! I only wish they were a bit more pigmented!
For the price, you get a fairly good product; perfect to carry around in your bag, handy, complete as it comes with a sponge applicator. I wouldn't say it's the best neutral eyeshadow trio on the market, but it's a nice one.
