Castledew Color Shot Eyes 4 Color Palette Review & Swatches

August 12, 2009

I just got this Castledew Color Shot Eyes 4 Color Palette from a friend in Australia (thanks Adrian!) and it’s *so* cute I have to share it with you ladies!

For those of you who are not familiar with the brand, Castledew is a subsidiary line of one of the biggest Korean beauty brands, VOV.

The super cute, almost princessy compact – can I just say Jill Stuart lookalike?! – is roughly 4 inches wide with a lid that doubles as a mirror and a clear glittery bottom. Inside the compact is a huge mirror and a double-ended sponge applicator which works great for applying the eyeshadows.

I have #2, which contains a white, pastel green, silvery blue and denim blue. The colors are all super shimmery and totally gorgeous. They go on semi-pigmented with a smooth texture and can easily be layered for more color. Plus they lasted for a good 12 hours without a primer underneath and only faded a bit by the end of the night. I am definitely going to get my hands on some of the other colors!

Below are some swatches. My favorites are the white and silvery blue.

    Hi Phyllis, I was just looking around when I saw the Top 50 Makeup Blogs. Congrats on that! I’m just wondering do you have any favorite makeup blogs besides yours!

    Castledew palettes are so nice and cute.

    I think you can also get it at for 24 bucks or something.
