Review+EOTD: Meilasu Purplish Red Creme Eyeshadow Provided by KKCenterhk By yamismakeup

Hello!~ Another product that was sent to me by KKCenterhk was this creme shadow by the brand Meilasu. I have never heard of this brand, so I was very excited to try a new brand out. I chose this color because it reminded me a lot of Illamasqua's lipstick in 'Underwold', which is a pink/purple with a strong blue duo-chrome.

Here is the look I created with this eyeshadow:


But more on the EOTD after the review...


Price and Availability
5.8g for $2.80 on the KKCenterhk website. For the price, it is a great deal!
*I received this product to review.

Packaging

The packaging is pretty, and very simple. It comes in a clear jar, that is small and has a good amount of weight to it. The lid is screw on, which I personally find annoying. Sometimes, the cap won't screw on right and its a hassle. But I guess I am just weird like that. The smallness of the jar makes it very easy to store though.

Product Review
The texture of this is kind of odd. I was expecting a creme eyeshadow, but this has a slight mousse texture. It feels very smooth and silky, almost like a primer. But be very careful of using this. Because of the formula, I recommend setting this with another eyeshadow or just a translucent powder to make sure it won't crease.

The color was something that also surprised me. I was expecting something much more purple, but it is actually a lot more pink than purple. The blue duo chrome is there, so I was very content with the color. I also find that this color is very close to my Coastal Scents 'Chameleon Violet' Mica, so they go perfect together. Also, when swatched, it had some very fine silver glitter. Its very subtle, but I like it a lot :)


Swatches

The shadow feels very "airy" and "mousee-y" on my fingertip
Swatched alone. Can you see the silver shimmers?

Can you see how the Coastal Scents 'Chameleon Violet' Mica intensifies the color? It also sets the creme shadow~

5. Apply the CS Mica to set the Meilasu creme shadow
6. Draw a thin line on your upper lash line using liquid liner
7. Mascara

Verdict:
I really love this color, specially because it goes so well with my CS Mica. I wish the formula was a little better, because it feels like it creases really easy. I will still use it though :D I think next time I will apply the Pixie Epoxy on the areas I apply the Meilasu creme shadow. I think that will help.
Thank you so much for reading ;)
