Best Korean Eyeshadows and Palettes

Is there a difference between Korean eye shadows and Western ones?

The key difference between Korean and Western eye shadows and palettes lies in their formulation and consistency. Korean shadows usually have a gloss and a more subtle hue. Korean eye shadows emphasize a more sparkly and lustrous finish rather than a bland matte finish. They are also very easy to blend and go on evenly. Also, Korean eye shadows and palettes usually have super-cute packaging and most importantly, long-lasting effects.

Also, Korean eyeshadows are usually much more affordable than their Western counterparts. However, western eye shadows and palettes are generally more pigmented than Korean formulas. They accentuate a matte finish over the glossy finish of Korean products. When it comes to consistency, Western products are inclined to use more flat and less flaky textures in contrast to Korean products.
