EOTD: Grande Shine Eyes

I got bored so I decided to do an EOTD with one of T'estimo's last palettes released before the brand was killed off. Don't get me wrong, I love the new replacement, Coffret D'or. I feel that most of the items are kind of similar to the T'estimo line with some slight differences.
I've done an EOTD with the Grande Shine Eyes palette in 02, which I purchased off some store on Ebay for $36ish sometime last year.
One of the major factors that caused me to get this was the tutorial that came out with these palettes. I luuurrve it!! (see below)
Just a quick review. The shadows and liner are quite pigmented, except the main shade. The main shade is a sort of lavender blue and it's not as smooth as the other shades and it's also not super pigmented.
The shadows and the liner fade quite easily, even with UDPP. After maybe 4-5 hours or so, I need to do touch up which gets kind of annoying.
The liner shade goes on very pigmented. The eyeliner brush that comes with it just sucks. It doesn't spread the product evenly so I have to go over it with a sponge tip applicator to smooth it out.
All in all, this isn't the best palette because it lacks the staying power, especially since I have oily eyelids, blah! The Coffret D'or 3D Lighting Eyes hold up much better than its predecessor.

What I used:
Sana Concealer
Grande Shine Eyes 02
Coffret D'or Star Dazzling Liner WT04
DejaVu Fiberwig mascara

I did pretty much the exact same thing as the video except the shadow and liner on the bottom. I also lined my eyes with the glitter liner instead of dotting it on.

I must be either really shitty at taking pictures or my eyes are messed up because I can see that crease thing happening there. This isn't makeup that was on for more than 10 minutes. Well as long as it doesn't look like this in person XD
And here's the lovely video! If you look up Kanebo Modern on Youtube, you'll see the other video that creates a more dramatic look. They also use the Grande Shine Eyes palette but I can't remember which one. Enjoy!

I need to find a good eyecream, but at the moment I can only go for cheaper ones, such as Skinfood. Maybe they'll have a good one.

Hi beeyoutiful7,
Np, hehe. I'm quite horrible at coming up with color combos to try, if I didn't have these videos or instructions on the palettes I'd be stuck XD

Hi Yas,
Thanks! The glitter liner has been sitting around collecting dust for a while so I decided to break it out XD
Strangely tho, there's less and less inside, probably because it's slowly evaporating XD

Hey DSKNguyen,
So sad that T'estimo was discontinued, I haven't even tried everything from that line.
What do you think of the palette?
