VOV Candy Eye Shadow Review and Swatches

Summer Summer Go Away!!
Come Again Another Day (year)
Little ______ (all Delhiites) want to play J

All burning like hell!! We Delhiwallas are never spared, be it summers or winters and that too long long J
To get some respite from the weather, I present to you, one of my old eye shadow palette from VOV that has some cool colours in it, to nullify the effect of weather to some extent. Oh, I know it is impossible but let’s try. At least it will soothe our eyes 😉
VOV Candy Eye Shadow Review and Swatches
Today’s review is somewhat different. Read on to know why….
I got this palette from some Delhi market, almost 3-4 years back at a whopping price of Rs. 600/-. Ohk, now I know what you are thinking. 600 bucks is not a whopping amount at all. I understand but for VOV!! At that time, I felt it’s perfect kit but now, that I know lot more, I feel it was pricey J.

Lovely packaging it has, a pure pearly white case with name printed on it. I am a fan of the packaging. It has a good quality mirror inside, always clear and easily usable. The eye shadow palette comes with an applicator with sponge applicator on one end and brush on other end. Quite convenient to hold, the applicator is fine if you don’t want to experiment with the shadows or don’t want to exploit the palette to full. For that you need real brushes, no J.

But, the applicator is just fine as it is ok for those who like to keep shadows to minimal, as the applicator doesn’t shed and the sponge side, as you can see, is intact and has not torn off like many do!!
Now, coming to the colours, first have a look into them.

So, you see the first colour, a nice highlighter. It is great and works perfectly, goes on smoothly and it is decently pigmented too. This is the colour I use most from this palette 😉

This palette contains some basic colours, say, pink, blue, black, brown, copper, bronze, purple, all good colours which can take care for most of the outfits normally.
The packs says-
  • Water Shine Eye Shadow
  • A two – shade eye shadow that glides on effortlessly and smoothly for a non powdery, natural looking finish.
  • Helps protect dryness by retaining vital moisture.
  • Clear colors stay on for many hours without fading.
  • Made in Korea.

A two shade eye shadow it is, gives normal colour while giving effect of pearls, somewhat dual tone. I quite like that. Yes, these are smooth in application and non – powdery.
It stays, but not for hours, as claimed, but again, a decent stay.
Now come to the last part of it. I think, it doesn’t exist, not at least from VOV. If it is original then, I am quite happy, but I feel it is fake!! And then, to the extent, that they write that it is ‘Made in Korea’ J.
It’s good. If you copy, then copy full.
Did you notice the spellings on the back of the pack 😉 Let me show you!!

So, what do you feel now J. I don’t think that a well established company won’t check spellings or won’t know them in the first place 😉
If anyone has seen it or have it, then do tell me, I would be very happy, that my money didn’t get wasted. Not that, these are bad, I would say, these are better than some cheapo drugstore brands’ eye shadows. But, at the price they came, I would expect them to be original!!

These are shadows on my bare hand, no primer and single swipe.
All in all, I would say that the VOV eye shadow palette that I have, is quite decent, nicely pigmented with good colour payoffs. I am not sure about the authenticity of the eye shadows, but other than that, these are good with nice texture and a good two – toned shade, very good for parties J

Note – These VOV shadows are better than the 120 pro palette that is such a hit on ebay 😉 so you can see the quality is not bad at all.
