I'm on an Etude House roll now. I'm bringing you guys the review for 'Fantastic Color Eyes' in #1 Bloody Halloween. As I see on the website it's supposed to be Limited Edition but we'll see how long will it be there.
I do think Etude House's palette is getting better and better. I think it their palettes make me more excited than how I should have! Oh! I got some flowers from my
I'm not really excited for the packaging. But I think their size is adorable, small yet not that 'mini.

The unique part that differs this from other Etude House's Eyeshadow Palette is that this one contain a cream textures that can be used as eyeshadow base, lip color and blusher.
Pale is a light beige shadow with golden shimmer (it didn't really shows well on the picture but in real life it's not as sheer as the pic. Zombie Kiss is the cream texture - it's a wine red shade. Witch Hunting is dusty rose color, probably my favorite shade from the bunch and the only matte shade in the palette. Funky Horror is a muted purple shade with pink shimmers. Bloody Burgundy is frost burgundy red color. And the last one is Halloween Night black with red shimmers.
And together with the palette, there's a sponge applicator inside. It's not the cheap one that usually came in within a palette, this time it's like the upgraded version - it's longer and actually usable.
I can't express how I hate the idea of mixing cream and powdered stuff together in a palette. The fallouts and how disgusting how it'll be.. it's a big no-no for me. I don't know that it's a cream textured, I thought it's a red eyeshadow just like last years limited edition palette have (&Rose - Flowering Eyes Palette, read review HERE)
I was taken back by the fact that there's a cream texture one inside - but I gave in anyway. Surprisingly, there's almost no fallouts from the eyeshadow. It's either the eyeshadows are good or I'm just too careful with them lol
My least favorite from the whole palette will be the "Bloody Kiss" or the cream product - I used it as a lip color and not only it doesn't stay there (it transfers everywhere) the shade is just not as pigmented as in the pan. Plus, i need a lip brush to be able to work the color on, since it's a very dark and bright color, it gets messy easily.

"Zombie Kiss" on the lips
I found out that using this palette, especially using all the shades on one eyes, will definitely make a very dramatic eye look. Mainly because the shades are very plumy and darker. I still use this for daily look, for example below I used only "Witch Hunting" on the lid area, "Pale" in the inner corner and "Bloody Burgundy" on the outer corner (lower water line).
Hangs in great even without primer
Great shade selection
"Zombie Kiss", or the cream product quality is just, mediocre.
Overall, I really enjoying my palette, especially these days where the sweater weather just kicked in. I do incorporate other neutral eyeshadow when working with this palette, since it can be too intimidating to have a total smoky plum eye look in the afternoon.
If you want to invest on 1 palette for your daily look, this is definitely not the one you should pick. The colors are great and looks really pretty, but using this palette only will be too much for everyday. If I'm to compare this and the &Rose Flowering Eyes Palette last year, Flowering Eyes has greater color selection, from neutral to dramatic shades, while this Fantastic Color Eyes eyeshadows have better quality overall.
I think I'm gonna rock this palette for the whole autumn this year! Oh yeah, this is a limited edition palette. Usually it's gonna be in the store for several months from now, but once sold out they won't restock it. So, be quick! :)
Thankyou for reading guys! :D muach! xx
