VDL Expert Color Eye Book 6.4- No.6

Last year VDL created a collection of cosmetics based on Pantone’s Color of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. This year it is Greenery and for the second year in a row VDL has created another Pantone collection. I picked up a few of the items from the collections. I will be posting separate reviews on them. Today’s post is about the VDL Expert Color Eye Book 6.4, the 6th edition.

The Eye Book is a plastic, mirrored compact with twelve shades of which five are matte, three are shimmer, and four are glitter.

On the rear of the palette, there is a diagram of the layout with suggestions on how to use each shade in contouring and highlighting, and how to use the brush.

The small dual end brush has an end for blending and one for defining.

The blending end is slightly wider and longer, and made of natural fibers

The defining end is made of synthetic bristles.

Here is a swatch of the shades.

The design of the compact is thin, minimal, and modern. I appreciate that about some companies. Sometimes having a product with an elaborate or bulky design can be overwhelming. Not to mention taking up too much space in a bag. I feel that the shadows are great in quality. The particles are very soft without compromising the pigmentation. The brush fibers, particularly the blending end, are not of the greatest quality and with its small size, would be more appropriate for touch ups or in the event that you don’t have another brush to use at the moment. I couldn’t find any information on the net weight of the shadows but for the quality of the shadows and design of the compact, I would say it is set at a fair price.
