the only shadows I will buy again

Nov 6, 2014

  • madagascar taupes

I can tell em cosmetics put a lot of thought into this one. I like how simple each compact is and each color is marked on how they are supposed to be used (like line, contour, highlight etc...) The colors are gorgeous and are very true to what is on the website. I only gave it a four star because without eye primer it doesn't stay for more then three hours. I will be buying more colors!

I love eyeshadows but sometimes they can fade out and by the end of the day it looks like i didn't even wear any eyeshadows or it will fade out and give me raccoon eyes. This palette is amazing for staying all day long and it it super easy to blend. They don't fade out and at the end of the day it stays as if i just applied it a few hours ago. Totally recommend this product if you want makeup that doesn't budge.

I'm in love!!

I absolutely love these eyeshadow colors! I bought Seoul Sweets and love the different combinations I can make with the few colors it comes with. These colors last ALL DAY LONG! I thought I wasn't going to like the liner that came with the pallet, but it also stays on all day. I love that it comes with a stiff angle brush because it makes it so much easier to apply the liner with a stiff brush (I personally tested this with a soft angle brush). Overall, I love this product and will definitely buy it again!

These are not colors I would normally choose to wear but I thought I would take a chance and give this collection a try. I was very surprised at how much I loved the colors and how flattering they were on me. Great colors for spring!

Versatility in the palm of my hand

  • seoul sweets

I have been using loose powdered shadows for the past 2 years and wanted to try something new. I love that this color palette is easy to use – and all right there in the palm of my hand. The color selection is beautiful and reminds me of the popularized “Naked” or “Nude” palettes available from other makeup companies. I was surprised that this color palette was matte, but then looking back, I could see how the company differentiates shimmer/matte colors and it was my error. The pigments are wonderful and buildable. More application means brighter, bold color. I will definitely get another palette from em!

So, I recently bought this eyeshadow palette, and I was SO EXCITED. I have so many em products but this one was always on my wishlist, so I finally splurged and bought it. It is a bit expensive. The packaging is pretty cute. The texture is so nice and creamy. The colors are buildable and smudge-proof, while still letting you blend. However, the two main colors did not show up on my skin; not because of pigmentation, but my skin tone! It completely blended in! I considered keeping it and using the main shade as a powder. I'm probably going to exchange it though, because I love everything about this palette, it was just my stupid decision that ruined the experience. :(

I love the colors in this palette! I really love the bronze copper color and the dark indigo blue. You can create many looks with the palettes. It's so pigmented and the colors stay is really nice.

could have been better

  • tokyo plums

I was disappointed that the colors were not very pigmented, and do not go on very smoothly. They look nice if you really pack the product on but that is a waste. Additionally, they could at least ship these free at that ridiculous price. Poor value. I would rather spend another $20 and get a high-quality Dior palette.

So pretty!

I can travel with this pallete to so many places. It has very pretty colours and is good quality ! :)

I got MANY of these eyeshadow palettes. I'm such a eye color junkie. Two of them were for friends but the rest, I became greedy and had to try them all. casablanca neutrals Matte and the least shimmery of the 4 that I own. reminds me a lot of Naked Basics. very nice for subtle days. i usually wear this palette when I want to wear red lips. shanghai lavenders this was a gift to a friend, but i took a peek at the palette before mailing it off. Nice shimmer, not too much glitter. light purples compared to the darker purples of tokyo plums bali bronzes the eyeshadows are very satin compared to the other palettes I own. this palette can easily be manipulated for day to night looks.Loving shade #5 on this palette amalfi coast aquas Possibly my favorite palette out of the 4 that i have. I always avoided blues because it gave me a weird blackeye effect on me but these colors blew me away. It seems dark but not very dark once it's on your eyelids :) very unique combination of colors dublin khakis a little shimmery for a neutral palette for my taste. The forest green color that's included makes a great lower eyelash liner for a bold look. tokyo plums the second palette that was given to a friend as a gift. for as long as i've known her has always worn subtle purple eyeshadow and she absolutely loved this palette. it was satin enough for her to use with her fingers (she hates brushes lol) new york city smokeys the most glittery of all the ones i own. I tend to avoid glitters because I dont' like it getting in my eyes so I haven't been using this palette as much. it is very bright and noticeable so i've been only wearing this when i go out to dark settings or clubs Overall, I love the palettes. There are some shades in each palette that i LOVE and some that i prefer not to use. These palettes are a bit more on the expensive side but it's very long-lasting. I'm a waitress and some days when I have double shifts, these eyeshadows last me all day without any touch-ups (i also have oily skin so for these to last that long, it means alot!). Very worthy of high praise :)

So I got it for Christmas this morning, I was so excited. The pigmentation is poor, I have eye shadows I payed one dollar for that has better pigmentation than this. The texture was phenomenal though- very, very creamy and nice. The overall value and quality though is low- it didn't last very long even with a good primer. I love the colors too much to return it though. Most of what you pay for is packaging. To wrap it up, I was disappointed in this. I has very high expectations and it wasn't met.

I love the colors in this pallet. They are all flat, no shimmer. This is a breath of fresh air, it's so hard to find eye shadows that don't shimmer or sparkle. The flat colors create a natural look. I wear the pallet to work and class. I have already hit pan on the second lightest color, which is what I use for a base. I wish this color was bigger. The small black color works amazing as a liner! Over all, this is an amazing pallet if you need colors to use for work/school and other day time events. It creates a professional, clean eye and you can experiment with the colors to make many different looks. xoxo Cori

quick, effortless looks from one pallete

The palette sets you up for success for morning when you can't decide on what to do for your eyes, and allows you to carry it around easily for you to touch-up during the day and into the night. Very pigmented. A little pricey but very good quality~!

had to have this palette

I have been eyeing this palette for months and finally decided i couldn't go wrong with it. I find the pigmentation is lovely in most of the shades. The two creamier or neutral shades are a bit weak, but the lavender, grey, black, and shimmery highlight are all fabulous! I am very impressed with the lovely color selection and the quality.

I was invited to try product

Bali Bronzes made my green eyes pop! All of the colors blended perfectly and the colors can be used for day or night (huge variety). I am very pleased with the magnetic packaging and the huge mirror! I'm happy to support Michelle

I was pleasantly surprised by this palette. The colors are beautiful and nicely pigmented, the textures of these shadows are very soft and smooth making it very easy to blend these colors. I'm very happy with my purchase and will absolutely buy from EM in the future.

great neutrals!

Just got my shade play today and was so excited to try it. The shadows are extremely smooth and soft. I wish the lighter colors were a bit more pigmented. They do seem to look a little too similar once on the skin but so far they seem very blendable and easy to build up. I love the fact that they blend very easily and the packaging is very durable. A little pricy for the size of the palette but overall I'm glad I made the purchase! Can't wait to receive the two lipsticks I purchased!

pretty Impressive

The light colors should pump out more.

No words can describe how much I love this!

I am literally in awe of how beautiful this eye shadow is! Definitely top quality, it goes onto the eyes like velvet and the pigmentation is so great that you only need to pick up a tiny bit of product onto your brush to get a perfect effect. The colors are perfect for achieving any kind of look from day wear to night out, and the dark colors are perfect for using as eyeliner. This is definitely the best eye shadow that I have ever tried. The only itty bitty complaint that I have is the price! If you buy two of these palettes, the price is higher than that of a life palette and you only get half the amount. Seems a bit silly to me. If the price were lowered $10 or so, that would be so perfect, I would die of happiness. Other than that, it's overall the greatest thing that's ever been added to my makeup collection. So happy.<3
