THREE 4D Eye Palette – 10 Mystery GirlApril 21, 2014 at 9:49 pm | Posted in Beauty | 2 Comments
I’ve reviewed THREE’s powder blushes in 13 Light Sonic and 14 Sunday Smile. Having satisfied my initial curiosity of THREE with their blushes, I felt more confident to brand out into their eyeshadow palettes.
THREE recently launched in Taiwan, so now besides Japan and Bangkok, Thailand, there’s another country where THREE is available. But when will it reach Singapore?
THREE has a good variety of combinations for their 4D Eyeshadow Palettes, and though I did think about getting something outside of my usual, I eventually caved in and got 10 Mystery Girl.
And of course it’s the most neutral one of the lot. The shades are slightly more interesting than Addiction’s Sugar Rusk, which tended more on the safe side.
You get a variety of textures within this quad, satin, cream and glitter, covering most of the bases. Though at first glance, you might dismiss it as yet another neutral palette, but the shades are quite unlike most neutral quads. The top left is a satiny shimmer beige-grey, the bottom left is a satin peachy-tan, the top right is a creamy brown with some multi-shimmer, and the bottom right is a golden peach glitter. The inclusion of the peachy-tan and beige-grey makes this palette more interesting than most normal neutrals which go for safe taupes, beiges, bronzes etc..
Swatched in natural light.
Swatched in flash light.
All shades are pigmented and silky, even the glitter shade wasn’t chunky or difficult to apply. Fall out was very minimal (if at all) once the eyeshadows set and it was generally a palette that was very easy to work with. This is a quad which allows you to create more multi-dimensional looks by layering or just using each shade as it is. I like to layer the grey over the brown which gives it a more complex sheen. I suppose that’s what the 4D means right? Though it’s a neutral palette, there’s definitely room to play around and experiment.
