Uponaworld Cosmetics Japanese Fashion Palettes Swatches

Okay, this post is a super super SUPER long time coming (we're talking months).  For some reason, I kept putting it off, most likely because of the crazy amount of pictures in it.  I finally get to show you swatches of Uponaworld Cosmetics' pressed Japanese Fashion palettes!  They were released awhile back and I bought three out of four that were available.  The shop also ran a deal where you get a full sized shadow for each palette you purchase, so I got three of the Kenshin ones.  Without further ado, let's get on with it!

Pictures taken under daylight bulb and swatched over ELF Glitter Primer (top/left half) and ELF Essential Primer (bottom/right half)

As you can see, the product was soft enough to crack and break around the edges during transport.  I emailed the owner about this and she offered to replace the shadows or teach me how to repress them.  I decided to repress them instead since I still had most of the product (I did drop the last palette and shattered a whole bunch, but was able to salvage a good amount...)  If I recall correctly, Uponaworld has discontinued their pressed palettes so these aren't available anymore.  However, they are available in loose form and you can press them yourself if you wish.

  1. Ooh, I have to try this company! I checked out the website and these are the J-fashion sets I like the most too. I also wanna get some of the soaps if I can.

    1. I think you'd really like them! Visual Kei looks like colors you'd like and Mori Girl are great transition/outer corner colors to pair them up with :) I bought her Matcha/Green Tea soap awhile back but haven't used it yet because I have other soaps right now.

      I wouldn't recommend getting samples from Uponaworld because I know you use your eyeshadows often so you'd need a bigger size. Plus I really vouch for their formula :P Especially the shimmery/metallic shades.
