Tony Moly Trio Eyeshadow # 3

I just adore the packaging on this. It's simple yet classic, with a beautiful ivy pattern printed on the lid. It has three colors a blue, silver and a white.
It is not an even split which I would have liked, or even the blue being the biggest part would have been better to me. But still I really like this eyeshadow trio.

As you can see the split is half the 2 quarters. I'm sorry I'm harping on this but the white is so light its a weird color to give the majority to. Also I really like the colors and they are a shimmery metallic. But they look much more vibrant in the package.

So when I got home I expected something that was going to be a night club item and got something I could actually wear to work. I can get it pop like I expected but I have to wet the colors and I don't always want to take the time to do that.

Tony Moly - PartyLover Fashionista Shimmer Lover Collection - Brown

This was my first venture into Tony Moly. I decided to try some new things and branch out a little bit from my usually shopping.

It comes in a nice compact with a large mirror on the front. The compact opens like a fan which I could see some problems with the design. I would not put this in my purse for fear it would open and break.

The first part of the compact is a lovely powder. It is a perfect match for me but someone paler or even a little darker it wouldn't match at all.

The second fan is a 5 part blusher/highlight/shadow combo. I don't really wear blush and when I do it is light. They are lovely colors that have a shimmer but are not grainy with glitter.

The first is a white, then a light pink, a dark brown bronze color, then a pink/red bronze and finally a dark brown.

I use the dark brown as an eyeliner, the two dark shades as lower lid eye shadow depending on what I wear that day. And the pink and white as an upper lid color.

The last tray contains a compact sponge and a brush for blush/lids.

A great buy at 18,000 won (around $13 U.S. at purchase). I bought one for my sister and once she gets it I hope she will also review here too.
