Review: Shiseido True Eye Shadow Maquillage in PK 363

My previous post tells you that (woohoo!) I just won a Shiseido Eye Shadow from BDJ Box. Thankful as I am, I’m not really a fan of putting any eyeshadow to myself. The first time I bought an eyeshadow palette was from Revlon and that was 6-7 years ago. I just recently bought an eyeshadow palette from Sephora because it is from their Hello Kitty line (and I loooove Hello Kitty). Besides being lazy & not so efficient in putting any eyeshadow on, my eyelids aren’t good blank canvass; they hardly show the true colors of the eyeshadow. Let me show you why:

There you go. I’m a panda incarnate. Correction: A brown panda incarnate. Add the fact that I “lack hair”, as my officemate has put it kindly, I am a hairless brown panda. My eyelids are so brown that even when I was a kid, some people had asked me if I was wearing any eyeshadow. The dark undereye circles just worsened as I got older. So this dilemma has made eyeshadow as my least favorite make-up and that’s why I don’t purchase any as much as I do with lippies. Most of my eyeshadow palettes were given to me as gifts and this Shiseido eyeshadow is the most recent “gift” that I received.

I paid Php50 last Friday for the shipping fee instead of going directly to BDJ’s San Juan office. No one at the house has even informed me that it has been delivered yesterday, Saturday. I just saw this on the table right in front of our main door:

It’s mine! Discovered it at around 4 in the morning today, I was so excited to open the package that I just had to stop myself from squealing so as not to wake everyone.

Slowly but surely, eh?

Well… my name was mispelled. But who’s complaining, right! I got the PK 363 set which I like the most out of all the available palettes that they have when I checked the Shiseido website. Another woohoo! The instructions on the back are in Japanese (Nihongo if I’m not mistaken?) but the diagram is pretty much understandable.

I like the subtle pink and muted gold of its packaging. It can also easily fit on anyone’s makeup kit (as seen on the size comparison with my bb9360).

The diagram/guide is a good must-have especially for the make-up newbies.

The brushes are standard but I particularly like brush #4 that is meant to be used in putting the darkest shade to serve as the eyeliner. I think I can re-purpose this brush when I use my pencil eyeliner for blending.

Here are the swatches on my arm and how it looks up close when used:

Except for the #5 shade that will be used for the undereye, all of the shades are shimmery.
Now let me try them on. Yeah, on a Sunday morning, why not! To prepare, I blot any excess oil on my eyelid then put something on to tone down the brown. I don’t need to put any primer since I’m not going anywhere at 5 on a Sunday morning.

Big improvement right? Now here’s my right eye ready for battle with the Shiseido eyeshadow on my lid, Maybelline The Rocket mascara on my lashes and Cover Girl on my brows:

20131027-101501.jpg
I had a trouble with the falling glitters that I had to use a make-up remover to clean them off. I think I forgot to tap the excess before putting them on. It took me 3x to reapply shade #2 for it to show on my lids; the curse of the panda eyes.
My favorite is shade #3 because I think it’s the most pigmented color for my lids.

Overall, I think it’s a good buy for an everyday look. The colors are subtle and you can easily mix & match them with your other eyeshadow. It also doesn’t have an overpowering smell; just a little woodsy scent if you sniff directly on the palette. It may be a bit pricey though because I saw on ebay that the price ranges around $40-50.

Thanks to BDJ Box for this awesome prize!

You win some, winsome â­ï¸

Have you ever won anything before? Not just bragging rights but winning an actual thing? Eventually, I’ll WIN the lottery (optimism to the nth level!) but for now, here’s the list of what I’ve won so far (as far as I can remember):

⭐️ A Blue Pong Pagong Tote Bag (not the actual picture of the product that I won)

20131025-051721.jpg
I was in Grade 4 when we had a field trip at Shangri-la to see the Batibot live show. Batibot was the counterpart of Sesame Street and Pong Pagong, for me, was the counterpart of Big Bird. Pong Pagong was this big adorable turtle who loves to play and sing with the kids.

So how did I get the priceless blue tote? I simply raised my hand to volunteer to sing the Batibot theme song at the stage. Fearless. I got the bag because I was fearless. And a little cheating on the side, guilty as charged. My younger brother, together with my older sister as a chaperone, went to see the show a day before my class’ field trip so my sis told me to memorize the song. Well as karma had decided to turn its wheels against me, I wasn’t able to use the bag because my mom decided to give it away. All that fearless singing and cheating for nothing. Karma.

⭐️A John Legend CD (not the actual picture of the product that I won)

20131025-054556.jpg
Working barely for a year on a graveyard shift, cable tv was my go-to entertainment on my weekdays off. You work at night and your rest days are in the middle of a regular work week, argh. So there I was alone, channel surfing, when I saw this chatroom-like channel where you have to guess a song and you’ll win a John Legend CD if you’re the first one to answer correctly. I had a losing streak in high school (must be the Pong-Pagong-tote-bag-curse), not winning even at the cake raffle no matter how many tickets I buy (I love cake), so I tried my luck to get myself a free cd. I wasn’t even a fan but I somehow like his song “Ordinary People”.

I won, woohoo! But the moderator guy of that station, whom I was supposed to claim my prize from, started texting me in a creepy flirtatious way. Na-ah, thanks but no thanks. I probably won not because of my non-existent John Legend trivia prowess. I probaby won because my avatar was a picture of my smouldering eyes with dark smokey eyeshadow. Errrr.

⭐️Spongebob Squarepants pillow and Salt & Pepper containers (not the actual picture of the products that I won)

Things that I won for selling specific products at work.

⭐️ A two-burner gas stove (not the actual picture of the product that I won)

It was technically my first time to win any raffle with only pure luck to back me up. I got qualified for the raffle together with the other poor unfortunate souls who were scheduled to work on a New Year’s Eve.

⭐️ True Eye Shadow Maquillage from Shiseido

20131025-064351.jpg
I just got an email yesterday from the BDJ Box that I won for my blog entry showing the unboxing of my August BDJ box. It was my first BDJ box so getting something out of it, besides the Shiseido products on the box, was sweeeeeet!

I will make a review of this loot once I receive it. I’m beyond excited!

Next on my winning list is winning the lottery (but gotta learn how to bet first).😜

Unboxing of my first BDJ box (August BDJ box)

– posted it first on my tumblr account

I received my August BDJ box on September due to the bad weather so I was really excited when it was delivered to my house on a Sunday morning.

It’s a Shiseido box! I got “deluxe” sized products (aka samples) from their new Ibuki line.

I gave away 3 of these stickers to my officemates.

I personally used 6 out of 8 of these products:

I gave these 2 to my mom:

20131007-101937.jpg I decided to take a picture of each item beside the price of the product (regular size) just so I’ll know how much I’ll shell out if the product works for me. 👍 Well so far I love the products that I’ve tried. They all smell really great; talk about luxurious but not overpowering.
My favorites are:
❤️ Eye and Lip Makeup Remover – it is not oily so it doesn’t cause any breakouts. One drop is enough to remove makeup easily and it makes my face soft and clean.
❤️ Eye Correcting Cream – I dap a few of this cream around my eye, focusing on my undereye, before I put on my BB cream and my concealer. I honestly think that it really lessens the darkness around my eyes! I’m no longer a panda! A raccoon! I’m ME! (lol) My exaggerated reaction is due to the fact that my dark undereye has always been my dilemma. Sometimes, genetic sucks 😜

Major hesitation though in buying my favorites is their price. I don’t know if I’ll spend thousands (chi-ching chi-ching) for these products. Still thinking about it though…
