Review and Swatches: Sariayu 25 Best Choices Eyeshadows Palette

Sariayu 25 Best Choices Eyeshadow Palette (25th Anniversary Palette)

It just occurred to me that I have hardly reviewed a local, Indonesia beauty product on this blog. Eyeshadows are what local brands excel in, and my absolute favorite is the Sariayu 25 years anniversary eyeshadow palette. It is a collection of 25 eyeshadow colors from various Sariayu collections over the years (1987 – 2011). It is still being sold at various Martha Tilaar Shops (the umbrella brand of Sariayu) which you can find at various malls in Indonesia. It used to be available online as well, but I think you’ll need to hurry as stocks may be dwindling. I note that the price has increased by at least threefold since I bought it (2011).

I will do an in-depth review later, but for now a quick look at two of the colors, a navy blue and a brown taupe color (top row third and second from your right, respectively). The colors in this palette are all very pigmented, and these two are no exception. The thin strip of blue line is done using a wet brush; note the extra brightness that liquid brings out. In the pictures below where the blue is worn to line the upper lid, and the taupe the lower lashline, but used dry.Sariayu 25 Palette7
