As part of eyeshadow palette month I wanted to make sure I reviewed some leftover eyeshadow palettes as well. By now, I have reviewed pretty much every eyeshadow palette I have ever owned. Either through a dedicated blog post such as this one, or through a 10 palette review video. In today’s review we are looking at a stunning little K-beauty palette that I feel truly warrants its own moment in the spotlight. This is the Peach C Falling in Pink eyeshadow palette.
Review: Peach C Falling in… Falling in Pink eyeshadow palette
In recent years I have been really into trying K-beauty products. They really suit my makeup aesthetic and the focus is really on quick makeup that gets the best out of your natural beauty. Eyeshadow palettes aren’t really a thing, but under the influence of Western beauty trends, they now seem to be featuring some more. I found this Peach C number on Yesstyle, which is where I buy all of my Asian beauty products. It retails for €13.25 right now but they do regular sales. The palette is available in three colors and this one just seemed like my kind of color story.
What does this palette have to offer?
So this eyeshadow palette is a very pretty quad. It comes in simple plastic packaging that is truly just about the shades. There are no frills here and what it is all about is of course the shades inside it. And let me tell you: these are some good eyeshadows! This was not only easy to use and well-pigmented, I felt this made for such a pretty look as well. It definitely inspired me to look more into K-beauty eyeshadow palettes and I have since bought some more.
What is the color story like?
This color story looks like something I might like: it features soft, rosy neutrals which I love. One thing does make this not 100% perfect for me and that is the lack of shimmers. There is only one shimmer and everything else is matte. I would have preferred at least one more shimmer. But really if you give me one good crease shade I don’t mind if the rest of the palette features shimmer. That said, the one shimmer we get is one of the best rose gold shimmers I have tried in recent years.
How does this palette swatch?
We could already see this in the color story: this palette is light. Not because it isn’t pigmented, but because the shades are light. This is quite normal for K-beauty brands. None of the makeup is too outspoken or noticeable. So if you want to try this, it is good to know that before going into it. The aesthetic that is achieved through using K-beauty makeup products is simply different from that of what you can find in most brands at Sephora.
How does this palette apply?
As you can see here, this palette achieves a stunning neutral look with a great pop of shimmer on the lid. Now, is this the most versatile palette I have ever used? No. This is mainly a ‘one look in a palette’ kind of thing. But if you like doing the same look everyday you’d get 4 stunning shades that will create the same look time and time and time again. What baffles me most is how smooth these shadows are but without creating fallout and this look lasted all day.
My final thoughts
The Peach C Falling in Pink eyeshadow palette is one of my favorite smaller quads in my collection. It was this palette actually that made me realize that I really don’t need a large 12-pan palette and it was one of the first smaller palettes I tried. It just makes for a good staple for an everyday makeup routine featuring some great shadows that will truly see you through on a day to day basis.
Would I recommend the Peach C Falling in Pink eyeshadow palette?
This is a good one. I think if you want to try K-beauty eyeshadow than a quad like this can give a feel for a few more things than just a single. Like I said, K-beauty isn’t know for creating palettes, but I see more and more of them popping up on Yesstyle, so I will certainly try some more as time goes on. However, I think this is a great way to get started if you are looking to try more K-beauty eyeshadow.
