I’ve received this ESYORO eye shadow palette from HKC Plaza some time ago and here’s a swatch post! It’s a small and handy compact palette which consists of 8 very pretty and wearable shades.
I would say this is a very versatile palette that allows you to create both day and night looks. It has 4 neutral shades and 4 dark smokey shades to intensify a look.
Here’s a closer look at the colors. All of them are of a shimmer finish for that bright look.
From top left, we have a nice pearl white, a light golden beige, a sweet peach, a shimmery taupe.
From bottom left, a deep royal purple, royal blue, khaki green and a dark metallic grey.
These swatches are a one swipe, dry without any primers. The 4 light shades swatches very smooth and have a soft buttery texture. The darker colors pales in terms of pigmentation and felt a little chalky.
Here’s a closer look at the lighter shades. They all very smooth but I find the glitter a litter chunky. Out of the 4, I find the peach color and the taupe to have the better texture with just enough shimmer.
As for the darker shades, you can see that they are not as smooth and does not swatch as well. I feel that they will fare better when applied over a primer or wet. The purple is a tad disappointing out of the 4. The metallic grey is the smoothest out of the 4. There will definitely be fall out when using these colors so it’s best to powder up the under eye area first or do your base make after.
For 1.5g per pan, this palette retails at $88 at HKC plaza which means each color works out to be $11. It’s not that expensive but you can find better quality shadows palettes at a similar price point.
I rate this a 3/5.
