The Face Shop with its new endorsers Kim Hyun Joong and Park Min Young are releasing more and more new products in their line up.  One of which is another set of baked eye shadows this time in quads instead of dome trios. 

As I am partial to pinks, naturally it’s the salmony pinks that i gravitate to and eventually purchase, even with eye shadows.  It’s baked, di umano, daw, sabi nila, baked.  i did not make the effort to clean this pallet up.  i wanted you to see that when you dab your sponge tip applicator or brush that you can have this sort of a mess.

the colors are actually wonderful and glorious and yes and on the shimmery side.

true enough to the description on the box once it sticks to your skin, with or without a primer, it does stay. and look at those colors, vaaavooom! not cheapy cheapy at all just looking at that pigmentation and color pay off. so you can use this with or without a primer and get nearly the same results when not using an eye primer.

green day 😛

with a little liner on the water line.  ready for any fight LOL.

and for casual/office/college wearable smokey.  the golds with brown warmed up with the pinks.

clearly i will dent the hell out of the pinky salmon shade and hit pan before you can click your heels together and say ‘there’s no place like home!’

i like this pallet, and actually, after i’ve dented the hell out of my kate brown collection, i like shimmers they make hiding behind my glasses worth the fun of applying makeup on.  sa madali’t sabi, nakikita yung makeup na niapply ko even behind dark rimmed glasses (my makeup is visible even behind dark rimmed glasses).
with both looks, i apply the gold shade from the inner corner of my eye up to brow bone, then the pink on my lid to the crease, then either the dark green or the dark brown for my liner and crease/outer V(corner) shades.  



  • pigmentation, the swatches on my arm is like 1 and half swipe only, that’s with primer underneath.  for the same color pay off to come out, you’ll need about a couple of swipes but that’s all, pwamis.
  • does not fade, it does, but very minimally, oxidize, just a tad, so that bright salmony pink goes into a slightly darker pink which i like anyway.
  • the shimmers are manageable, they are not like big chunks of glitter that can go in my eye and a few minutes later i have eye booger, nope, once i have it on, on top of a primer, it stays on.
  • very minimal fall out, only upon application is there fall out, so no fall out throughout the day, but then that could be because i have a great eye primer.
  • no weird scents or smell
  • neat compact packaging with mirror
  • color combination with the ivy-dark olive green and the really dark brown that on a different lighting can go burgandy and the gold with the salmony pink, you can go from day to night and have varied combinations with just one pallet like this.
  • the really flimsy spongetip applicator, i swear, in that regard, tfs reminds me of western brands with the awful spongetip applicators, c’mon tfs, get with the program, etude, laneige, kate, majolica majorca and lunasol have awesome spongetip applicators.
  • the price for 3.5g even for 4 colors, at 800 plus it’s still kinda pricey
  • messy as you can see from the pics of the product
do i recommend:  yes, specifically this 02 khaki orange pallet just so you can do more looks
will i repurchase: i’ll check to see the other pallets from this line, but unless there’s a kim hyun joong promo it’s quite unlikely i will repurchase…as i want another lunasol fall 2011 pallet! hahahah
