Let’s get into the basics of the EB Advance Uncover 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette
EB Advance Uncover 12 Color Eyeshadow (Net.Wt. 12g)
Price: Php199 from Php395 (Landmark Makati)
The product is presented in a white ordinary box with the logo of EB Advance and the name of the palette. The actual palette’s packaging is like a lightweight tin. I like that there is a mirror in it and a dual-ended applicator. One end is a small sponge applicator and the other end is a small flat brush.
Product description: “Neutral gets a fresh spin with the EB Advance Uncover 12 Color Eyeshadow Palette. this mirrored palette features twelve gorgeous rosy neutral shades that come in a mix of matte and shimmery finishes, perfect to take your beauty from day to night.”
My First Impression
I wasn’t really planning on buying new make-up when I went on a trip to Manila with my friend Whemmy. However, we walked the aisle of the cosmetics department and the sales ladies are busily fixing their new stocks of makeup and there I saw them checking the palettes. The shimmery colors caught my eye and were tempted to do a swatch test.
Along with the palette, I also bought EB Advance matte lipstick for only Php99! I got the shade, Dusky Rose.
Basically, the pigmentation on the swatches is not too opaque but the colors are really wearable that’s why I really bought this palette. To some shades, I had to pick up the product a few more times to get the swatch, so obviously, the pigment is a bit powdery, not buttery.
The Application, here’s the look I did:
This EB Advance Uncover 12 Color Eyeshadow has the perfect matte and shimmer shades which I really enjoyed applying on my lids but with control, because the product is a little powdery or it has some fallouts. I made just a simple rosy look using the palette and I like the color pay-off on my skin. I finished my look with the EB matte lipstick to complement the shimmers on my eye makeup.
So, How Did It Go?
To be perfectly honest, I was filming a review on this product and at the first application of the shimmery shades, there were a lot of fallouts, especially the glittery shades and it scattered all over my face. So, I redid the look; I only used the simple shimmery shades of the EB Advance Uncover 12 Color Eyeshadow and I was very very careful not to pick up too much pigment or else-fallouts!
The question is, will I buy it again or not? I won’t but I’ll make sure that I’ll be using this baby as often as I can not only because this is the only neutral palette I have but also, come on, I’m not wasting my money just because the product isn’t that good! Anyways, ladies, I’m still giving this EB Advance Uncover 12 Color Eyeshadow another chance by utilizing all the shades for different looks and probably adhering the glittery shades with the help of concealer on my lids.
