I have recently discovered this product, which had been lying in my stash for about a year now. I pulled it out when I was cleaning out my vanity. It is a beautiful palette. Read on to find out more about it.
Your eyes will look bigger than ever! Achieve deep-set eyes by layering on these colors with different textures! Use this four-shade palette of eyeshadows to try a wide range of tricks for making your eyes look bigger. Apply the sweet colors and then the bitter colors in order. As you layer on the color, your eyes will look deeper-set, like dark chocolate with a rich, multi-layered flavor!
A: Base color: Apply to the whole of the upper lid. This bright color like white chocolate sweeps away any trace of dullness from your eyelids. Creates a solid foundation for achieving deep-set eyes and helps the other colors to stand out better.
B: Light color: Apply to the hollow of your eye socket A light color with gently sparkling pearl particles. For a gorgeous impression in an instant!
C: Accent color: Apply to the hollow of your eye socket, spreading it from the inner corner of the eye to the outer edges An accent color studded with masses of sparkling lamé and shiny pearl particles. For attractive, sparkling eyes.
D: Liner color: Use the fine tip to draw a line at the edge of your eye. A deep, rich liner color with few pearl particles. A dark chocolate color that makes the line of your eyes look bolder and deeper-set. Emphasizes your pupils!
Packaging: The palette comes in a transparent plastic, horizontally stretched out octagon shape with a sponge tip applicator (which I have lost). The darkest shade is difficult to access with fingers because it is the one which has the smallest quantity. The plastic sort of feels cheap and it is not very sturdy. If you drop it, the top will come off, so I would not recommend it for travel.
¥680. Made in Japan.
Shade: The palette is named  Berry Sherbet and described as “sweet purple-toned pastel shades. Soft, simple to use colors with a hint of pink.” There are hardly any matte eyeshadows at all in the palettes available here, so this one follows that theme of having no matte shadows in it. Also, there are no transition eyeshadows in this palette or any other palette from the same line.
I would describe the shades as (from L to R):
- Duo-chrome white and light purple.
- Frosty pink.
- Slightly duo-chrome lavender-light purple.
- Dark brown with hints of burgundy.
The shades are absolutely beautiful on the eyes. I particularly enjoy the lavender and dark brown shades.
Finish: This palette is supposed to have pearl finish. That is, the first 3 eyeshadows are shimmery but the shimmer is very finely milled. They have a slight bit of glitter along with the shimmer too. The darkest eyeshadow has the least amount of shimmer, it has more of a satin finish.
Staying Power: With primer, these eyeshadows last for about 5-6 hours on me, but I feel they absolutely require a primer (even if you don’t have oily eyelids), just to provide something to hold on to for the shimmer.
Consistency/Texture: The eyeshadows are very powdery but not chalky. There is a lot of fallout, so I recommend using these before you start with your base makeup.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is poor to very average on this product. That is probably the only disappointing aspect of this palette but this is the standard amount of pigmentation across a lot of brands in the drugstore.
These eyeshadows blend very well, but because of poor pigmentation, if you blend, the colour disappears and the finely milled shimmer remains. So, patting it on and using it wet is a much better way to achieve something close to true colour.
The darkest colours in eyeshadow palettes are generally recommended to be used as a liner colour rather than outer V colour. That is something I have noted in a lot of brands. The first 3 shades can be used for inner corner and inner lower lash line highlight. The middle 2 shades can also be used in the inner one-third of the lid and/or entirety of the lid. That being said, I find that the first 3 shades are too frosty for me. I enjoy the dark brown the most, it is beautiful as a liner as well as on the outer V.
