IN2IT Eye Color Palette in Sorbet Deluxe


Finally! Gotten around to buying an eyeshadow palette. Actually this is still last month's purchase, just haven't found time to make a review yet. What I have bought is the IN2IT eye color palette in Sorbet Deluxe. There are 3 palettes of this line, and I almost bought the all neutral one since it contains a beautiful copper, but I decided I might want a little color to play with.

I haven't gotten around to playing with it so much though. Aside from sweeping just one color all over the lids, anything more artistic seems like a daunting challenge that requires more time and effort, both in low supply right now. I'm not even sure if my eye shape would allow any of those beautiful eyeshadow applications I see around. But I might have some time soon, after the festivities are over. ;)

So let's start with the review.


This eyeshadow palette from IN2IT is very small, it fits in the palm of my hand. It looks decent enough with its white and clear plastic packaging and the silver print and decorations on the front.


The back has a metallic paper with the palette name, decription, directions and ingredients printed on it. It also has the weight, manufacturing date and expiry at the bottom.


Inside there is a mirror which is enough to see just one eye at a time up close. :D

The shadows are placed in a semi-herringbone pattern with four shades of equal length and only a small one allocated in the middle. Three of the colors are neutrals and the remaining two are in the pink/red range.


Here are the colors:

  1. Satin tan with silver glitters
  2. Shimmery, glittery light pink
  3. Satin buff/champagne with silver glitters
  4. Satin plum with glitters
  5. Matte dark brown with pink glitters
I find the texture to be okay, although I would have wanted more matte and the only matte in this palette even has some glitters on it. Weird, I know. It is also the most chalky of them all, which means I wouldn't be able to enjoy using it as much.

What I love from the palette are the tan and plum colors as they have the best consistency. I just hate the glitters though, and this goes to all the colors, because there's so much fall out and it's not something I could easily wipe away.

Price and Availability

I bought this at P322.75 at SM department store. The price is discounted at 10% off, and I've forgotten the actual price, but it's not more than P400.

Verdict

I do like it because it's so small I'd be sure to have a place for it in my makeup bag especially since I'll be travelling. The colors are also wearable even with just a color swept on the lids. I just wish the glitters doesn't rain down on my cheeks and that the dark brown isn't chalky. So, with those issues, I don't think I will be buying this again.

So, that's it for my review. Thanks for reading!

  1. Great review!!. I like how its small and very easy to throw in a makeup bag. But just like you, i'm not too fond of chalky, glittery eye shadows. Maybe a patting motion when applying the eye shadows may reduce less fall out but sometimes is just the eye shadows that can't be worked with. But none of the less great honest review!

  2. oh, yeah! I remember you're saying that you want to get a new makeup palette weeks ago! :D
    Hi, Dawn! How are you? Miss talking to you! hehe
    Hmm, for me glittery or not is depends on occasion. For everyday look (for uni) yeas, I'll go with matte eye shadow and for out with my girls, glittery it is! hehe
    I have never tried In2It before, so I'll swatch this in Watsons in my next visit to see how it works on my skin colour. But I love that matte dark brown but I wish that colour is without glitter.
    Love this review! Do post your looks with these! :D

  4. I'm not too big of a fan of glittery shadows ||D My oily lids always seem to smudge the sparkles onto other areas of my face.
    Thank you for sharing this wonderful little palette though! I'm sure this would be great for artistic make up of the sorts~ Also would be great for spring. *A*

  6. I like that brand, so affordable. I've only tried the eyebrow pallette and their blush. I haven't checked out their ES pallettes, i hope they have pallettes in matte.

    1. I tried going through the settings, I don't know what's wrong, I haven't changed anything before. I just removed the gadget and reinstall it, I hope it's working now.
