KKCenterhk Review: CUICU Symphony Stereo 3 No.C3312-12

Hello dolls ♥

If you read my blog frequently, you should know that I LOVE purple. Purple is my favorite color and anything and everything purple catches my eye. When KKCenterhk asked me to review an eyeshadow trio, I immediately choose the purple trio. This trio is from the brand CUICU (it seems to be a Koren brand).

Price and Availability
$5.58 on the KKCenterhk website.
Fairly inexpensive for a trio.

It comes in a small, sturdy, plastic container with one sponge tip applicator. It can be a little difficult to open. Not the best container, but it works.

Swatched dry once on bare skin.

Product Review

As you can see from the swatches, they are very nicely pigmented. The are smooth, and hardly have fall out. When swatched, they seem a little crumbly, but they don't apply crumbly. It is a little odd. The colors included are a frosty white,  a frosty purple toned pink, and a deeper red toned purple. 
The shimmery white is the least pigmented and the darker purple is the most pigmented of the three. The dark purple is a slightly more purple and more pigmented version of MAC's Nocturnelle eyeshadow.
The three colors work together very well, especially the  two purples. 
I am surprised I loved all three color together since they are all pretty frosty colors (I will do a tutorial for a look using this trio). 

I am very surprised by this trio. I didn't think much about it at first because it looked cheap. I also thought the colors would be very sheer. I was really wrong! I guess that teaches me not to judge a book by its cover! The only thing I really have against the product is the packaging. It is irritating to say the least because it is so difficult to open. But the eyeshadows themselves are amazing. Like I said, the dark purple is very close in color to MAC's Norturnelle but it has a much better color payoff. From that alone you can see that these are not cheap in quality. 

Rating: 9/10

Look with this trio coming soon!
