When Olive Young opened its international online store a couple of months ago, I was lucky enough to receive some freebies as part of its K-beauty tester giveaway.
One of the products I received was the Colorgram: TOK Hit Pan eyeshadow palette. I’ve been interested in this brand because of IZ*ONE and their endorsement. I think visually and conceptually, IZ*ONE tends to be among the top in terms of aesthetic cohesiveness and consistency. I love their consistent use of florals and pastel colors, as well as the generous use of tulle. In terms of makeup, their use of muted peaches and corals are always stunning.
So, of course, I’m excited about the makeup brand that endorses them. Starting off, I want to say that I loved the packaging. It was holographic and very eye-catching. About the palette itself, I sad kind of annoyed there wasn’t a mirror. I think that if there was a little mirror in the palette, it would be perfect to use on-the-go, but it’s not that big of a deal.
The colors themselves are perfect for daily wear, and I think it’s a solid starter if you’re just getting into Korean style makeup and beauty. The hues are soft, muted, and feminine and are easily buildable. I especially like the glittery color on the bottom right. The dark brown in the bottom center is perfect for lining your eyes.
It’s not super vibrant and pigmented– I think if you’re more interested in Western-style makeup the palette won’t really be up your alley.
I do like it a lot, but now that I’ve had it for a while, I’ll say that I just don’t reach for the palette a lot. I’ll always go for something else. But like I said if you’re just getting into K-beauty and don’t want to concern yourselves with a lot of palettes this is a great starter with a good amount of usable colors.
