HASH(0x95b0e498) out of 5 stars pigmentation could be better, but decent 8 Jan. 2015
By nekojita - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Shade 06 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I must admit I was a little surprised at how small the compact was when it arrived, but I really don't know much about Japonesque as a brand except I've seen the stores in Europe. Obviously it's one of the higher end ones (considering the price), and the packaging is very impressive - the case is very pretty and sturdy, this is something you can throw in your purse or travel bag and not have to worry about breaking (unless it gets really crushed). There's also a handy mirror inside of the case even though it's small. Obviously, there's no applicator wand with the shadow.
Now, on to the shadow itself - I received Shade 06, which is a pretty mauve/purple duo. I'll admit that I used a primer before putting on the eyeshadow, which I always do. That might have helped a little. The eyeshadow itself isn't too bad, it went on easily with both finger and brush, didn't feel harsh to the eyes and while it broke up a little with application, I will say that I didn't have any fall out while applying it (which was very nice).
However, the colors aren't as concentrated as other brands I use (which tend to be high end brands such as Urban Decay, Make Up For Ever, etc.). That might be why they say 'ethereal veil of color or layer and build for dramatic impact'. It's not BAD, but just know if you want the full impact of the shade you're definitely going to have do that 'build' to get to it.
So, you get a nice matched color combo in a very handy, pretty case that shouldn't break on you without some effort, and it's a decent make up (not the greatest, but if you like an eyeshadow that you can work with, something maybe that can start out subtle and then build up), then this would be worth a try.

HASH(0x96103b10) out of 5 stars Very soft and lustrous but not as pigmented as some other luxury brands. 7 Jan. 2015
By ZenWoman - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Shade 06 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a nice duo of shades that comes in an elegant case. There is a silvery pinkish mauve and a mauvish-purple with silver glitter in this duo. Some other duos come with one matte shade but this is the one Japonesque offered me to try. If you're looking for softer mauve-pink and purple shades, this may very well work for you.

The shadows are soft and there is fall out. Since they're glitter based velvet touch shades, there is a little more fallout that say matte shades. They need a primer to keep them on or they will fall out too quick, Urban Decay primer potion is my favorite.

I needed a duo for my purse for touch ups but the case though beautiful and sturdy, is a little too thick to carry in a smaller purse, wish it was a little thinner.

These velvet touch shades are softer and better than drug store brands but not as super-pigmented as the luxury brands in the same price range like MAC or Urban Decay. Especially Urban Decay shades are buttery soft and highly pigmented, and you can get a palette with many more shades for a similar price. MAC 4 shade special palettes are usually the same price as this Japonesque duo so I was expecting a little more.

However, it's all about shades and these 2 shades are harder to get as a duo in some collections and if it works for you it is a nice product.

HASH(0x95b102c4) out of 5 stars Image color not exact, but product quality excellent. 11 Jan. 2015
By L. Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Shade 06 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have the color 06 Velvet Touch with is a set of purples. I love the colors, and I love the wearability of them (they last through the day). I love the buttery blendable powder texture. I love that the package is petite but the pan is wide enough to really dip a good brush in. Purples are very forgiving, flattery colors against all skin and hair colors. Very universal. These have a bit of a shimmer (but not a glitter) to them, and they apply to a more neutral finish than they appear in the pan. I really love these and will be taking a look at this brand in the future. I especially love that there is no "fall out" from your brush with this formula, so you have control over where you apply color. (Note, there is no included brush, which, in my opinion, is a positive. It makes the package more sleek, and I prefer to use a good brush instead of pre-packaged ones.)

Two points of concern based on the current listing worth pointint out. One, I don't think the image is very true-to-color. These purples are warmer than the image implies. Also, the listing seems to emphasize the mineral content of these, and it should probably be noted that the first ingredient is talc.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this shadow.

HASH(0x95b101e0) out of 5 stars Excellent shadow for daytime wear 17 Jan. 2015
By Stephanie Manley - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Shade 06 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am seeing this brand more often in the stores. So far I have been very impressed with the Japonesque brand. They offer a higher end products that are on bar with well known names here such as Make Up Forever, Urban Decay, and MAC. So this is something much nicer than you would normally get in a drug store.

The packaging is a big plus, a very nicely decorated case that is study. So you can feel like the product won't break or crack in the package should you put it in your purse to carry around. I think this is a big plus. I have the purple shade number 06. I thought the colors were very nice, and very wearable for most for either the office or evening.

The texture is a soft and buttery and they blend very well. I wasn't in love with the pigmentation. I always wear eye shadow with a primer and these lasted from 6 am in the morning until 10 pm when I washed them off at night. This compact really does a nice job at giving you a great day look. If you want something more intense I think you may need to enhance it with additional colors. While the quality and lasting power of this shadows is amazing, the pigmentation leaves something to be desired.

HASH(0x95b102d0) out of 5 stars Too small, hard to open, and not worth the cost 1 Feb. 2015
By Peggy Bowes - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: Shade 06 Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Since I have green eyes, I like to use purple and pink eyeshadow to enhance them, so I ordered this eyeshadow duo in Shade 06. (For reference, I normally use Tarte eyeshadows, which I love.) The colors are pretty, but I will not buy from this company again. First of all, the compact is very tiny. That may be a plus for travel or to tuck into a small handbag, but then you would also need a brush or applicator because the duo does not include one. Secondly, the product goes on very light, and you have to keep building it up, which takes a lot of time. The pink makes a nice highlighter for under the brow bone, but the purple is barely visible. You have to get your brush wet to get any color to show up. Third, the case is very difficult to open. You have to get your nail under the catch and risk breaking or cracking a nail. For a little more money, I could buy a Tarte eyeshadow quad and get twice as many colors with a much better quality. This product is more comparable to a drugstore duo than a higher end brand. I don't think it's worth the cost.
