LOVE THIS. I'm a huge fan of Tsubasa Masuwaka, this did contribute to purpose of buying this but apparently this quad is amazing. I didn't believe it because when I saw people using it, it didn't look too pigmented and the colours looked like they could easily be duped. Japanese eyeshadows, or Asian eyeshadows in general, are typically extremely sheer and sparkly as the natural makeup look is a huge trend. I thought this quad would fit that description and the heavy price tag seemed a bit much. I paid $21 dollars for this on imomoko, it was on sale, but I still felt like it was a lot to pay for four eyeshadows that I thought were to be mediocre. After a year, I finally caved in and bought it because why not, plus I needed free shipping on imomoko. How wrong was I. This quad feels buttery smooth to touch, the eyeshadows were pigmented, the little applicator is not crap at all and it is very usable, and the best part is that the eyeshadows cannot be duped. It's very slim so it's very travel friendly. Inside the quad includes a shimmery orangey gold colour, a slightly frosty ivory, a deep bronze brown, and a satin dark brown. I've basically ignored my beloved naked palettes for this tiny quad, and that's saying something as I cannot live without my naked palettes. If I could only have one eyeshadow product, it'd most likely be this because it's very simple to transition from a day look to a night look.
Amazing quality shadows that I bought on Amazon. Kind of expensive but worth it to get cute Japanese makeup! :) Really pigmented too as good, if not better than some of the other brands. It comes with a highlight color, a crease color, and some colors to make the look a little smokey. It's one of my favorite quads and def. worth the money! :)
Dolly Wink has 4 eyeshadow palettes that have an RRP of $18. I bought this from ebay for $22.
Anyway the palette contains 4 colours,a golden light-brown, shimmery gold-white, medium brown with golden micro shimmers and a really dark brown with very tiny microshimmers. There is a double-ended applicator that works really well with designing the eyes to have a dolly cute effect, the product's packaging/box contains a 'how-to' instruction on how to achieve dolly look.
The palette showcases exceptional-quality shadows. they do not have fallouts (very minimal if any), they have a decent amount of product included and are housed in a cute round container that has a transparent heart on the exterior to show what colours are inside. The shadows are very easy to blend, the texture is so smooth, better than Estee Lauder, benefit, nyx, bourjois, loreal shadows i have tried. I use NYX shadow base so I have never experienced any creasing or fallouts or fading after very long hours of wear.
The cons of this product is similar to many japanese/asian brands. It is very hard to get at its RRP. I mean, paying $22 for a 4 colour product that is so tiny in size, and buying it online means you have to pay for shipping, wait for 2 weeks to get it..all that hassle.
Overall, this eyeshadow is very exceptional, just very pricy. The colours arent easily duped, there are colours that are similar but the finish and effect of the colours on your eyes are unique and so smooth and pretty. I think the price i paid is worth the product, but i definitely recommend picking up as much products in japan/asia while youre there, because there is just a massive price gap if you do.
