For quite a while, I’ve been focussing my attention onto Western eyeshadows and while I have tried out a few Korean palettes lately, most of them have been a bit disappointing for me. Rather than the formulas being bad, I actually think that it’s because the products are catered to a different look to what I usually do now.
I prefer blendable and highly pigmented colours, with a variety of formulas and shades. Typically, I would use a minimum of three shades on my eyes and I find it a bit difficult to build full eye looks that I’m satisfied with with smaller palettes. However, since Korean beauty trends favour light washes of colour and natural looks, I find that their eyeshadows tend to be softer and generally stay within a more easy to use colour spectrum. Personally, I prefer to use Western eye shadows but there are some Korean brands that do really great colour eye products – my favourite of which is 3CE!
3CE recently expanded their popular Mood Recipe line with more lipsticks, blushers and also an eyeshadow palette! This isn’t the first one that they’ve done, but they really don’t do them often and it is the first time that they’ve had this 3×3 format. They’re called the Mood Recipe Multi Eye Color Palette and I have it in Plot Twist – there are three in total: this one, an all matte palette and also a more rose toned palette. This was sent to me for review by StyleKorean and you can get this, as well as a really good range of other 3CE products, from their website where it sells for USD$50.40
Before you do that though, let’s get into this review where I want to talk about the product, show you the shades as well as share my personal experiences and recommendations about this.
