I received my Sasa.com orders the other day and it looks like this :
Christmas in May. I am so excited. I can’t wait to try all that. But patience, patience, it will be done at the right time. I opened only 3 things : Sasatinnie Japanese Accessory Facial Cleansing, Naruko Rose & Snow Fungus Aqua Cubic Complex and Cameleon 36 Color Professional Eyeshadow Palette (God, that’s long names).
First thing that I noticed when I opened it is that it smells like the old eyeshadows. You know, our mothers ones. It’s a powdery smell, almost reassuring, that I don’t really find in actual eyeshadows. The eyeshadows size is very small (it’s like the size of an average thumb nail) but the intensity of most of them is pretty good. With an eyeshadow base, it really is satisfying and resistance is nice, it doesn’t crease much, although I have greasy eyelids (yurk). The eyeshadows are very pearly and some shades are gorgeous. It cost me less than US$8, so it’s good value.
Bad news is that :
- It’s a bit powdery, so beware of fall out when applying
- the black eyeshadow pigmentation is so disappointing, more so as it’s the only matte of the palette
- The “make up collection” is written in Comic sans MS, which should be forbidden
- It seems that it’s not on the website anymore, but I guess you can find it elsewhere
[Sorry for the swatches quality, it was under natural light yet, but anyway]
