KKCenterHK ES Brand ESP78-03 palette includes 60 eyeshadows in a variety of frosts and mattes, ranging from neutrals to brights. The palette also includes 12 lipglosses, with 2 highlights, a contour and 3 blush. The palette has a decent sized mirror in the lid and also includes two applicators.
The eyeshadows have pretty decent color payoff, the frosts a little more than the mattes. I would highly suggest using eyeshadow primer and also a cream base for the best pigmentation. Here are the eyeshadows swatched heavily without any type of base, from the left column to the right column…
As you can see this is a nice variety of colors and you could create many looks with the selection of eyeshadows provided. Some of the frost shades are very soft and some of the mattes are a little powdery, but they glide on pretty smooth. With a good base the colors will really pop.
The lipglosses are nice and creamy and most are very pigmented, but the 5 light pink shades are all very close in color. I wish that some of the light pink shades were not included and we could have seen a few neutrals, another red and maybe a purple. The deep eggplant shade is perfect for Fall vamp lips.
All of the powders are matte except for the blush on the far right which is a shimmer. They are advertised as powder foundations, but in my opinion they will work better as matte highlights, a contour and blush. Especially if you have a pale to medium complexion. If you are darker like myself you will find that the shade selection for the powders are too light with the exception of the blush on the far right. The powders give decent pigmentation when built up but are a bit too powdery and have to be blended well.
Overall this is a great palette for beginners and gives you a nice selection of colors to practice different looks. You will be able to create looks from work appropriate to girls night out, and even creative and colorful looks. I would not really suggest this palette for professional makeup application as the colors have to be built up too much and you will have to put in extra work. The palette retails for $18.33 which is not bad for the selection included and can be purchased at www.kkcenterhk.com
