This is a review for ES 42 eyeshadows/blushes shimmer palette which I've received from www.kkcenterhk.com. I have used it a lot in my previous look Sea Foam.
I was super excited about this palette as it comes with 32 beautiful shimmery/glossy eyeshadows and 10 blushes! The case is made of clack matte plastic. The eyeshadows are almost creamy. I have experienced minimal fall out applying them on a base or wet. They have metallic finish. All the colors are vibrant and freakin' awesome! They can be applied both with a sponge or a brush, whatever you prefer most. As you can see there are included 2 sponges and a brush. Honestly I am not using any of these :) I prefer my Sigma brushes, but you can use them of course.
I would say that this palette comes with more than 32 eyeshadows, because most of the blushes seem to be eyeshadows :) Especially those bronzy colors, they are too shimmery for a blush or a bronzer, you'll see this in my swatches. Only 3 of them are matte (first 2 blushes from the 1st top raw and the 3rd blush from the 2nd raw), all the other are more or less shimmery :) They are all very pigmented. Try to not grab too much at once, just a touch with a light hand needed. Usually I mix few shades. They are a bit chalky. And another downside of these blushes is their staying power... They will not last you all day long, at least they did not work for me :( After few hours I noticed some fading.
