BCL X Althea Sunrise Moonrise Eyeshadow Palette | review

Assalammualaikum and Hello everyone !

YES! YESS! Eyeshadow timeeeeee...

I've been waiting for Althea.Kr come out with their own eyeshadow palette and its here!! Last time on the Butterfly Christmas party, We were ask what products that we're looking forward for Althea to come out next and I wrote Eyeshadow Palette & Lipstick. And here it is!!

The eyeshadow palette called as Sunrise & Moonrise Eyeshadow Palette. It is a collaboration between Althea and Bunga Citra Lestari, an Indonesia singer and actress that popular across South East Asia. Most people know her as BCL and she is indeed a beauty and fashion icon that exudes style, beauty and femininity.

This is how the eyeshadow palette looks like. I come in a flowery box and simple black compact packaging. I'm not really into the box design but the black sleek packaging save it. It is simple and exclusive with the pink written to it. It is not a matte black as it will show a reflection (like mirror). 

Close up look on the packaging. 

Sunrise & Moonrise Eyeshadow Palette is created to give a gorgeous daytime to sultry night time look. Which I think it is everyone dreams! Hehehee.. You can create day & night makeup look with only one eyeshadow palette. 

This is how it looks like when you open up the palette. You can see that it comes with 8 beautiful colors and fully occupied mirror. By seeing at the color selection I know I'm gonna love it as you can create an arrays of looks according to any occasion.

Net weight: 15.5g (1.93g/color)
Made in: Korea

To be honest, I'm pretty worry about the pigmentation as you know Korea Eyeshadow are normally not that pigmented as they prefer a light and sheer color instead but BCL X Althea Sunrise Moonrise Eyeshadow Palette took me out by surprise because each color in this palette is pretty pigmented for Korea Eyeshadow. There is a mix of glitters, shimmers and matte that easily to be blend. I'm impressed!

The color combination in this palette is pretty good as you can easily find a good pair for every color and also easy-to-use color combination. You can get a fresh daily look as well as that sweet and glamorous look. 

Here are the swathes of BCL X Althea Sunrise Moonrise Eyeshadow Palette 

When I touch the shadow I was like dayumm! It feels like buttery and the color pick up pretty good. It glides easily when I swatch it on my hand as well as when I apply it on eye lid. It gives you the effortlessly pigmentation of an eyeshadow. 

#1: Icy shimmery with slightly pink undertones
Color: 9.5/10
Pigmentation: 9/10
Texture: 9/10
Longevity: 8.5/10

*MY VERDICT: When I swatch this color I know that this will be the perfect color for brow bone and inner corner on the eyes. Turns out ti also can be used as face highlights. The pigmentation is good and the texture is buttery-like that easily to blend. 

#2: A matte light brown
Color: 7.5/10
Pigmentation: 8/10
Texture: 8.5/10
Longevity: 7/10

*MY VERDICT: When I saw this color on the palette I didn't give much expectation because I know this shades going to be neutral shade on me as I have medium skin-tone. This type of color normally going to pop-out even better on the fair skin-tone. I use this shade as my transition color on the crease and to cover some messy eyeshadow or what's not. 

#3: Luxurious metallic rose gold with pink undertones,
Color: 9/10
Pigmentation: 9/10
Texture: 9/10
Longevity: 8/10

*MY VERDICT:  Oh my! Oh my! I love this shade. This is the perfect color if you're looking to create a dolly and sweet makeup look. This will add more romantic vibes and bling together. Since it is metallic type I though it going to get some messy fall-out but it is not! The texture even feels like buttery-like texture. You also can wear this color own-its-own.

#4: Metallic gold with shimmer .
Color: 9/10
Pigmentation: 9/10
Texture: 9/10
Longevity: 8/10

*MY VERDICT: By seeing at the color I know this going to be the best shade on the eye-lid center to give the dramatic look as well as to give same radiance gold shimmer. This color is beautiful to apply as single shadow as well. 

#5: Rich brown with golden shimmer. 
Color: 9/10
Pigmentation: 8.5/10
Texture: 9/10
Longevity: 8/10

*MY VERDICT: This color beautiful as single eyeshadow where you can simply apply it all over the lid and it also beautiful to be apply at the crease area as to add a little depth to your eye-look. The shimmer is not that excessive so you can use it as daily color on the lid as well. 

#6: Deep wine shade 
Color: 9/10

*MY VERDICT: One of my favorite color in this palette. BEAUTIFUL!! I love this color where it is very versatile you can use it on your inner corner, as brow-bone highlight, as face highlight and you can also apply it own-its-own. Love the color and the texture that great for illuminating and adding brightness.

#8: A cool purple with a subtle shimmer. 
Color: 9/10
Pigmentation: 7.5/10
Texture: 8/10
Longevity: 7.5/10

*MY VERDICT: It is best to be use on crease area but the color pigmentation is not that strong as I wanted so I have to work it out a little bit so the color will be pop-out even more. You can use this shades own-its-own as single eyeshadow as well as for a gradient eye looks.  

The product pick up also good even using a brush. It blends easily and the color turns out nicely.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with this palette because I thought it will be sheer in pigmentation but turns out the pigmentation is pretty good for Korea Beauty Eyeshadow. The color selection also wonderful as they able to bring the sweet, sultry, fantasy eye look. It just that I hope they insert another dark matte brown in it than this palette will be perfect on-the-go for me. The fact the product picks up also good either using finger or brush. The buttery textures also another PLUS in this palette. I think they really put an effort to create this awesome palette plus it also collaboration with Bunga Citra Lestari. The color selection must be from her preferences. Weeee~

I hope you find my review helpful.

Till then, xoxo
