I love the different shades available in this palette, the colours are fun to blend and easy to match up. It is easy to apply with a brush, although using too much force will crack the eyeshadow. The lighter shades come off powdering, but the shimmer in the richer colours are a great balance.
Korean eyeshadow has a reputation for not being highly pigmented – but Etude House’s Lavender Land 10-color palette has good color payoff, is long wearing and - remarkably – doesn’t crease. I tried them upon arrival without a primer and was surprise not only by the delightful pigmentation – but by the fact that a few hours later they looked fresh: product hadn’t faded, moved or settled into my “mature” eyelid lines.
The palette is a cohesive mix of matte (3) , satin/ shimmer (4) and glitter (3) shades and while I’m well past the expiry date for anything glitter– this palette provides versatility to allow for trendy to classic looks. (Shade list is below.)
Korean eye shadow also seems to skew towards warm tones and this palette is no exception. There’s more “land” here than “lavender” – so purple lovers beware. Overall, the colors are unique and the product is highly recommended. I hope iHerb stocks additional color sets from Etude House. I would certainly buy them.
Etude House’s Lavender Land shades are:
Purple fantasy: shimmering purple brown with greenish glitter (very unique!)
Night garden stroll: matte deep brown
Sunset in Provence: shimmering pink /brown
Dried flower: matte pink /brown
Purple scent: shimmering warm purple with white glitter
Lavender ice cream: matte (super pale) lavender shade (low color payoff)
Lavender festival: satin purple
Purple flower: burgundy purple with gold shimmer
Please answer: champagne gold with glitter
Good night lavender: bronze shade with soft shimmer
For me the most striking feature of this palette is its staying power, it stays all day looking vibrant and fresh. Lovely little palette, small, compact, easy to use, beautiful colours, excellent pigmentation... I give it all pluses and thumbs up :)
