EB Advance has leveled up their game (for the nth time) by launching new sets of eyeshadow palettes they named EYECONIC in Minimalist, Jackpot, Black Tie, and Mixed Metals. You can actually have them all because guess what? They sell for P175 only per palette! Looking at those gorgeous shades, sino ba naman ang hindi maiinlove, diba?
But are they worth to buy? Let’s find out!
These compact eyeshadow palettes consist of mixed shades wherein you can create from a fresh everyday look to a dramatic smokey makeup look. These are paraben-free and cruelty-free which is a big plus! Each palette comes with a dual-ended brush and a small mirror. I like that the packaging is travel-friendly and sturdy. Despite its SRP, hindi sila nagtipid sa packaging. 🙂Jackpot, Minimalist, and Black Tie are best for women who prefer earth-tone shades such as browns, mauves, grays, and etc. These palettes can create from a minimal to a soft smokey eye makeup look that you can wear on a daily basis. Though I noticed that some of the brown shades look similar. I hope they added more mauve or black shades instead.
On the other hand, Mixed Metals are for those who tend to create a more dramatic look. This palette is perfect for those who love to play with colors. I love the shimmer shades on this palette.
Here are the swatches!
In general, they feel smooth and buttery but has minimal fallout. Pigmentation-wise, you will need two to three layers for the matte shades to be opaque. I was more drawn towards the shimmer shades kasi bongga na in just one swipe!
Overall, this is something I would recommend for beginners with a limited budget. One palette is enough but I highly suggest to get them all so you can have more colors to play with. Just a tip though, always use an eyeshadow primer to help your eye makeup stays longer.
Please wait for my video creating different looks with these palettes. So stay tuned!
