Are you ready for the cutest eyeshadow unboxing ever? Ok so I have only had this for a week since it landed on my doorstep and I have been unable to part with it! When I ordered it on ebay, I had no idea the eyeshadow compact would come in such adorable pink holographic packaging! I wanted to immediately take some photos and type up an initial reaction/review kinda post.
Insert heart eyes emoji here. Just look at it! When you open up the mini package, you instantly see the heart compact and with it, holographic pink prettiness and some words describing the make-up.
The compact itself feels very sturdy and this would make a great travel companion, due to it's compact size which fits easily in your hand and the handy mirror inside. The heart shaped compact is a cute baby pink colour with 'Love at first sight' written on top. I tried looking online for the brand - HOJO but I was only able to see images of this compact and all of the ebay listings. This make-up compact is from china and seems to be unbranded. I am however, really happy that I found this. I mean it's eyeshadow in a heart shape! If you know me well, you'll know that I will buy it regardless.
Sometimes with unbranded make-up I have found that the pigment/colour pay off is really good, even though it may not be the most expensive or branded product out there so I was excited to swatch these shades and I wasn't disappointed!
The colour selection I chose was 4. There are six colour variations to choose from, from dark browns and warm reds to the girliest smokey eye colour combination. 4 happens to be the girliest out of the lot due to the cute pink eyeshadow included in the pan. These eyeshadows do not have any names and when buying the compacts you have to choose a number. I wish the palette had names, I'm sure it would of been adorable too. Each compact has four eyeshadows and what I love about this is that you can use the colours separately or together to create the ultimate soft smokey eye. I particularly chose this colour combination because of the lovely highlight shade and the sparkly pink shade. All four eyeshadows have a shimmery finish and contain tiny sparkles. This compact includes a champagne highlight, a rose pink colour, a warm peach shade and a teddy bear brown. The above swatches are without a primer so you can imagine the colour pay off if used with a primer. The powders are so soft to touch and blend like a dream. You can really build up the colour intensity with these shades and the highlight really brings light to eye area, I have even used the champagne colour as a highlighter on my cheeks too!
I am really impressed with the pigmentation and I think that this would be a lovely product to have in your collection. I think I will be buying another one but with a more intense colour palette.
So the bit you wanted to know... the price! This beautiful eyeshadow compact only costed me £3.16!! Crazy right?! You can view the listing here on ebay - link
