KKCenterHK Review + Discount Code!


I was contacted by KKCenterHK to review some of their products. KKCenterHK is a website that sells makeup, eyelashes and wigs at great prices. I was sent three items, next to the items listed below are the links where they can be found. For this post, I am doing reviews for the CUICO eyeshadow and the JOJO eyeshadow quad.


CUICU Diamond Powder Eye Shadow "Stone Green": 
JOJO Eye Shadow Quad:
mimididi Flashing Diamond Powder No 5:

I really liked the CUICO eye shadow, it was really pigmented and it blended smoothly with my other shadow. It has a matte finish and I just loved how rich and silky it felt on my finger when I swatched it.  I didn't have to layer it on that much in order to get a rich hue. Also, no fallout!

 I swatched the shadow with and without primer and as you can see it showed up very well even without the primer.


I would recommend this shadow for bold eye looks and it could serve other purposes such as being applied as an eyeliner with a wet eyeliner brush. And the price is great, less than five dollars and it contains 4.2 grams of product. Pretty good deal.

 I used this color to do a colorful nighttime look with a strong cat eye. I really liked how it came out, minus the ghost face.

PROS
-VERY pigmented
-Texture of shadow is really smooth and easy to blend
-Inexpensive
-Great selection of colors
-matte finish 

CONS
-Delivery wait (website is based in Korea)




My face came out super light, this foundation does not go well with flash.

I wasn't as satisfied with the JOJO eyeshadow quad . I didn't find that it had great color payoff. The lightest color in the quad barely swatched on me. The photos I took testing the colors with and without primer almost looked the same.

I did a simple neutral look using the colors in the eyeshadow quad. Pretty good for everyday or you can glam it up by adding a deep red color to your lips.

CONS
-Packaging is annoying
