Kara Eyeshadow Palette ES09 Review and Swatches

Kara IKatehouse Palette
Kara ES09 Eyeshadow Palette

The Kara ES09 Palette has 35 eyeshadows with a nice range of matte and shimmers shades. They swatch very nicely, and apply well to the eyes. The mattes are not the best quality, but I had no issues applying or wearing them. I always wear a primer and set the primer with a light shadow. The shadows had great lasting power, and the shimmer shades really stood out. You don't have to spray them with a setting spray, they are very metallic on their own. The ES09 has a unique color scheme that drew me in. It's not your typical warm orangey/red palette.

I picked up this palette from IKatehouse and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the palette. The quality is similar to Morphe's 35 pan palettes, if you're familiar with Morphe. It is housed in a sturdy black plastic case, it has a mirror and the name is printed on the front, which is really nice. This will travel well in a suitcase. Overall, I was very impressed with this Kara palette. I find myself reaching for it quite a bit. I recently ordered the ES07 which reminded me of the Subculture palette. I'll have a review soon.

If you haven't checked out IKatehouse, take a look at their site. they have a wide variety of beauty products at very affordable prices. This palette was 14.99$ and shipping to Canada was affordable and quick.
