A couple of months ago, I tried out Espoir (stylized as eSpoir) for the first time but, of course, I couldn’t stop there. If you follow me on Instagram, or have read many of my reviews here at all, you’ll know that I’m absolutely weak for eyeshadow palettes. I have a huge collection and, whilst I really don’t need anymore, I just find so much joy in them… so I had to try these.
These are the Real Eye Palettes from Espoir. I have two colour variants here but there are five in total. The colour stories are fairly self explanatory too: Mauve Me, Apricot Me, Nude Mood, Peachy Like and Rosy Feed. These are ‘every day eyeshadow palettes’ that are intended to be easy to use and wearable for every day.
The two that I will be reviewing today is the Apricot Me and Mauve Me, both newly released in 2021 and currently available on StyleKorean for USD$31.60 (On sale from $35.20). Head on over there to check these out but, before you go, lets get into this review and some swatches.
I’ve had my eye on Espoir as a brand for years now. I first came across them while I was a student in Korea but didn’t have the chance to try their products – they’re not actually that expensive, but I was living on a very limited allowance as an exchange student. Now that I’m working and can afford to spend more on my make up though, I’m pretty keen to get back into what felt just out of reach back then.
Espoir (stylized as eSpoir) is primarily a make up brand and has a focus on enhancing natural beauty – blending a professional make up artist vibe with popular, accessible trends. Because of this, their products are fun but still maintain a sleek, high end aesthetic.
The product that I’ll be showing you today is called the Real Up Cheek, and I’ll be straight up with you – this is one of the cutest blushes that I’ve never seen, and it’s not even cat themed or an anime collaboration! There are five shades in the range, but I’ll be reviewing Cheery Berry and Caring Coral. These are all available at StyleKorean for USD$16.20 (on sale from USD$18) so pop on over there if you want to check them out.
And now, let’s get into this review!
