Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palette Swatches

Dolly Wink Eye Shadow Palettes
The Dolly Wink eye shadow palette comes in a black round plastic palette with a clear heart at the top so you can see the shadow colours. It also comes with a short double ended sponge tip applicator. These eye shadow palettes are smooth to apply, pigmented and true to colour, besides the last darkest shade. Most of the colours are matte besides the highlighting shade, which is surprising since most of the eye shadows I've seen from Japan tend to be on the shiny glittery side.

Here are the swatches of each eye shadow palette below. 


No. 01 Brown for Dolly Eyes

It comes in a orange brown,  pale yellow, matte brown and a matte dark brown.

To achieve the Dolly eye look:Sweep the first golden brown all over your lid
1. Sweep the first golden brown all over your lid
2. Blend the brown from your lash line up to your crease and apply it to the outer half of your lower lash line
3. Apply the dark brown on the lash line and the outer half of your lower lash line
4. Apply the pale yellow to the inner half lower lash line and corner of your eye

No. 02 Gray Pink for Cool Cat Eyes

The 02 Gray Pink  palette has a hot pink complementing with 3 grey shades which I would describe as a pale silver, grey and a navy black.

2. Blend the Grey from your lash line up to the crease
3. Apply the black on the upper lash line
4. Apply the hot pink to the outer half of your lower lash line

No. 03 Blue Orange for Vivid Native Eyes

Their 03 orange blue palette, it has a white, bright orange, sky blue and it’s meant to be a navy blue but it came out more like a grey black when I swatched it.

2. Apply the shimmery white to the inner corner and inner half of your lower lash line
3. Apply the bright orange to the outer half of your lower lash line
4. Blend the black on your upper lash line

No. 04 Green Pink for Colorful Candy Eyes

The Green Pink palette has a sheer cream white, aqua, hot pink and a matte grey black. For some reason the aqua green came out less pigmented. It’s still a very pretty aqua, I quite like the subtle look it gives, I think it makes this palette much more wearable but still give you that pop.

  6. @Shop N' Chomp, the brown palette's actually really nice, smooth and matte in a good way. :P I actually really like it, but the colours are more "ordinary" because a lot of brown palettes have simialar shades. Like the Lavshuca melting eyes OR-1 is pretty close to it, but slight more orange and brighter. I'll do a comparison photo of the two and you'll see what i mean. :)

    01 Brown is also my fave, followed closely by 02 02 Gray Pink. The other combos are slightly weird tbh hahaha
