These are their newest eyeshadow palettes that are grouped according to colors. The Pink Eyeshadow Palette contains colors that mostly has pink tones and are on the warmer side. Brown Eyeshadow Palette contains colors with brown hues and are on the cooler side.

My camera is acting up lately and the text on the photos are not showing up clearly. Nevertheless, you can find the ingredients and manufacture date at the back of the box and the product itself. I won't enumerate them anymore but I just want you to know that you can take a look at the list before purchasing and both palettes contain parabens, in case you would like to know.

The packaging is plastic that clicks when you close it. It doesn't feel expensive since it is a very affordable product but it is not flimsy at all. When closed, you will still see the colors inside and when you open it, you will see a long mirror that is sized enough for eye makeup application. It also has a dual ended sponge tip applicator which I only use for applying highlights on my inner corners and on the brow bone.

Here are the swatches for the PINK one. It has one matte eyeshadow and five shimmery eyeshadows. I will be honest that I am not good in describing shades so what I do is I capture a photo of the swatches and make sure it looks almost the same in actual. I personally like all colors from this palette except the second to the left from the swatch above. It is a pale pink shimmer eyeshadow that is too chalky for my liking. That rose gold (3rd from the left) color is just too pretty though!

For the BROWN one, here are the swatches. The white (1st) here is frosted and the black (6th) has some gold specks to it. I like the muted matte pink color (2nd). The other shades are on the gray-ish side but 3rd (matte) and 4th (with slight sheen) are my least favorite because it makes me look as if I have a black eye.

I prefer mixing colors from both palettes. Normally, I would choose warm colors but since the colors from the Pink palette is more on shimmers, I use the matte ones from the Brown palette as crease and transition colors. You can definitely create eye makeup looks for daytime and nighttime with these. Watch my daytime makeup tutorial embedded below.

What I like:

  • Very affordable at 150 pesos.

  • It has mirror and applicator inside.

  • Sturdy packaging although it feels cheap.

  • Pigmented. Lasts for 6-7 hours on my lids but the intensity of colors was a lessened a bit.

  • Buttery texture.

  • I like the colors especially on the PINK palette.

  • Unscented.

  • Available locally and in almost all department stores.

What I don't like:

  • I find one color to be a bit chalky.

  • Fallout is expected. A good primer can help.

I don't wear eyeshadows very often but lately I have been trying to experiment so that I can learn more about makeup. I am happy with these Ever Bilena Eyeshadow Palettes because at a very low price, it delivers good results. It is something I can definitely recommend. If I have to choose just one between the two, I will choose the Pink one just because the warmer colors look better on me. Both are useful for simple daytime or smokey eye makeup looks.
