Korean Cosmetics: Calli Real Color Shadow

I have this obsession with Asian cosmetics. Probably because they are pretty cheap and so inaccessible to me! Ms. B spoils me with some of great brands like 4U2 and Gino McCray...thank goodness for my BKK connection! I really want to do some damage in Japan & Korea though. We're limited to specialty shops here in Seattle and if I happen to come across something different, I'm going to buy it. No doubt when it came to this Calli Real Color Shadow palette. Note: The web page is in Korean. "Clear color eyeshadow with gentle touch." I found this at a small Korean shop at The Great Wall Mall in Renton, WA. Regular price was $28 but she gave it to me for 1/2 off. Not bad! I love that the word "trifling" is on the box. I haven't used that word in a minute! Haha!

I am always drawn to purple shadows because they compliment brown eyes. While I do sometimes purchase some wild colors, I can always count on hues of purple to look good no matter what!

This is not a common occurrence with palettes, there is an actual plastic shield over the product! I wish most palettes had some kind of cover over the shadow that would help protect it from shattering. This palette also came with four sponge tipped applicators which are small, but decent.

The colors are very light and opaque. I would probably use these colors more during the spring & summer. I prefer deeper eggplant and aubergine during the fall and winter.
