One of the favourite colour schemes of 2017 – and with that trend still continuing this year, especially in kbeauty – is peach! Although this trend is slowly fading out, it is such a easy to wear and flattering colour scheme that I think it’ll stick around through it all. It’s a very pretty and youthful twist on a neutral eyeshadow look, which is why you will find a lot of peach tones in Korean beauty trends. So, since I don’t try out a lot of Asian eyeshadows, I thought that I would try out this new, limited edition palette from Holika Holika. This is the Glossy Play palette which is part of their Spring/Summer collection, the entire range which includes lip tints, lip sticks, eye liners, highlighters and blushes and even single eyeshadows. I love the packaging of these so much but, personally, I haven’t used much from the brand. It isn’t because I don’t like Holika Holika, but rather that I’ve had bad experiences with their retail stores in Korea and so I never go into them anymore.
The holographic and bright packaging definitely caught my eye first, but – colour wise – I want to try and compare this to the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. I know that a lot of these Western brands can be difficult to access in some countries, or that they may be substantially more expensive than Korean alternatives, so I’d really like to continue exploring some of these ‘dupes’ in the future. There are certainly differences in the shade range (the Too Faced palette has more variation in darker shades and a greater variety of formula/textures) but I personally think that this Glossy Play Palette is still a very great option for those who prefer a lighter, Asian inspired make up style.
I had this palette gifted to me by StyleKorean to review but it’s unfortunate that they seem to be out of stock now! Hopefully, they will bring in a few more before it completely disappears (since it is a seasonal collection). You can still go to check out other items from the Glossy Play range though.
And, here’s on with the review! I have a lot of photos!
