VDL Cosmetics Festival Single Shadow in “Sepia”

Very rarely does a single eyeshadow, more uncommonly a brown shade, catch my attention on counter and actually deliver in a noteworthy way.  Newly launched brand VDL cosmetics (last December 15) caught my eye at Alabang Town Center last week.  The boutique is like a makeup candy store.  I walked away with 3 small purchases the most valued being SEPIA, this gorgeous fudge brown eyeshadow that has an inexplicably pretty plum or violet undertone.  The texture is a velvety satin-shot-with-shimmer, fall-out is moderate and the finish is just too beautiful, plus it’s only about Php475.00.

I know that there are lash sets that look like this in Divisoria that are dirt cheap, but I considered these as a present  as well to the bride who is a family friend.  I used this very pair on the last bride that I did.  The cute packaging is also what did me in.  You can’t deny that the box makes VDL lashes look more special just before you use them.
