Aha! Its finally here – my Lavshuca Summer Gradually Compact in 01 – Shiny Sand Beach.
Flourescent light washes everything out so I apologize for the poor quality of the picture. Essentially, its a 6 colour eyeshadow palette in gold and sand tones. The palettes on top are to be placed into the case below. Its a lot smaller than I expected! I got mine online at Ichibankao.com for US$27.90 as Lavshuca isn’t sold outside of Japan at this time.
Here are some first thoughts:-
- The palette case is a thin but sturdy metal. Its rather less substantial than the Stila metal palettes but should do the trick.
- The eyeshadow pans are really small.
- The colours in the white palette look metallic and brighter than what you see in the picture. The ones in the black palette are more shimmery for 2 and the one on the far right looks the most matte of the lot.
- There is some sticky glue at the back of the palettes for you to stick them into the metal pan. I got the sticky stuff all over my fingers because I did not know this.
I haven’t tested the colour but despite my concern, I don’t think this one will be too warm for me as in person, they look rather cool or neutral. I’ll test it and update in a week or so, so stay tuned for my review on the Lavshuca summer eyeshadow palette!
