Etude House Play Colour Eyes Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches !!


Happy Women’s Day to all beautiful ladies.

In November 2013 the Korean giant Etude house released their new launch – Play Colour Eyes Eyeshadow palettes.Since its launch it had been a hit and OOS everywhere.In this post, I will be speaking about this palette.

I wanted this palette so badly after reading and seeing so many raves and rants.

I couldn’t resist it any longer when I found this at 10% discount at jolse.com

My parcel containing this palette was stolen by India Post first time ( Excuse Me as I cry in the corner of my room.India Post gives me nightmares like this.) but Jolse was kind enough to send me one more.

I got this at the lowest price online via jolse and including shipping I got this at $20.

Let me do the review before the introduction part goes bulky.

By the way I got the So Hot Play one.


This is a 10 color eye shadow palette that comes in various textures for different expression of the eyes for different occasions.


With enclosed tip’s wider surface, spread base color onto eyelid and with tip’s narrow surface, apply shadow for gradation eye edges, or delicate application to lash line.

PRICE: $ 20


There are 10-color eye shadows in this palette in and So Chic Play is its other variant.The palette is  slim compact sized with a full size mirror, two dual sided applicators, and ten eye shadows which is a mix of shimmer, sparkle and matte shades.

The packaging comes in a hot pink box.When you open the case there is a thin plastic film covering the  shadows with the name for each shade written on them.

Party Gold and Snow Queen are the “sparkle” shades as they are shimmers with colour.These shades will be perfect for parties.

Burning Red, the most wonderful shade in this palette is matte and orangish red. Temptation is another matte and burgundy brown in shade.Naked as the name suggests is a nude matte.I love this shade as it is wearable.
Ponytail is a shimmery brown.Modern City is a gray with undertones of blue and silver.All night is blacish red with pink hues.The chic blue looks like a denim.Military khaki is a gorgeous olive green with golden shimmers.

All the shades are nicely pigmented and can leave stains.The matte shades are dense compared to other ones. These shadows are not chalky but the glittery ones are chunky and loose in consistency and texture.They tend to get flaky.Its tricky to apply it evenly.its soft and smooth but not so silky in texture.
