Victoria's Secret Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio Review


Most of us know Victoria's Secret for the sexy lingerie and for its annual fashion show, but actually, they have a relatively good makeup line. Okay, their makeup won't defeat Urban Decay or Shu Uemura, but the products are already good enough.

So today I'm going to talk more about their Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio in the color scheme 'Uninhibited'. 

For starters, there's already a rebranded and repackaged version of this that you can see in VS' website:

From Shimmer Eyeshadow Trio, it's now sold under the name Ultimate Look Shadow Trio. The color combinations are still the same as I own two trio sets under this product line and the shades are almost the same, if not identical. 

I looked through all the eyeshadows, and this was the only trio, that's why I'm certain that they just repackaged the product.  


This is the older packaged one that I have, and this is how the case looks like on the front and on the back.  



This is how the shadows look up close. It comes with a pearl white eyeshadow, a silver grey (but still too light to be deemed gunmetal) eyeshadow, and a shimmery black eyeshadow. The black one, when applied, is not carbon black, it's more of a near-black shade of grey... 


These are the swatches of the colors... The white is a bit more opaque in real life, but the silver grey is like that, and like what I was saying, the black is not carbon black...
