Shawill 12 color cream eyeshadow palette

Investing on make ups can be so expensive especially if you want high end popular brands. So while strolling around Robinson’s (Alabang) department store, I saw a display of Shawill makeup products. If I’m not mistaken, it’s just a new brand line (or maybe just new to me). It has a wide range of inexpensive cosmetic products. At first, I have doubts about the product quality because they were really inexpensive compared to other drugstore cosmetics, although the packaging are really good. I bought the 12 color cream eyeshadow palette to try out.
I’ve already used it twice/thrice already and I’m going to give my review for this product.

• Cute packaging. very enticing.
• Long mirror, you could see both your eyes although it’s slim.
• Inexpensive price! Php148 for 12 eyeshadows. That’s Php12 for each one.
• Pretty pigmented.
• Different palettes to choose from. I chose this colorful set.
• Also available in 6e/s palettes.
• Very shimmery and blendable.
• Good that there’s black and white in this palette. Easy to match with other shades.
• Expires on 2017! What? It’s at the bottom of the palette. See for yourself.

• On its first use, it is very glittery! But, it turns out it is only the top layer with glitter. Once you get to the eyeshadow it’s all nicely frost-finished. (What I saw on the brand display)
• Quite hard to pick by a brush.
• The cover says it’s a 12 color cream eyeshadow but it’s clearly powder.
• Bit hard to remove the glitters after washing my face. But you could try using a makeup remover that may/should work.
• -1 for the grammatical errors on packaging. (packaged in China but made in Italy)

Sorry for the picture. The eyeshadow wasn’t so clear mainly because I used white and silver/cream shade plus the camera flash. Anyway, another good thing, It stayed longer than I expected. It’s also good to wear at night.
Will I repurchase?

If need be, yes. But maybe I would try other palettes, like neutral or dark shades. I would also like to try their 6e/s palettes. I like this colorful palette so far (though I haven’t used the other shades yet). This one shows promise. For its price range and quality, I can say it’s a good buy. :)
