Korres Eyeshadows ($16.00 for 0.06 oz.) are smooth, blendable, and pigmented. I’m actually surprised at how well-rounded Korres’ line is, just because I came to know them as a skincare brand first, rather than a makeup brand, but they can do both well.
- #42S Green White is a sky blue with a silver-white frost sheen.
- #44S Golden Green is a light, springy chartreuse green with yellow gold sheen.
- #46S Olive Green is a smoked out gray-brown with a taupe sheen. I really don’t see much green in it, but it’s a lovely cool-toned brown with maybe a smidgen of khaki olive in it.
- #84S Sky Blue is a darkened periwinkle blue with violet and a bright, nearly metallic sheen. This one is more like a stormy blue sky, maybe. Not at all sky blue (in fact, they could have named #42S Sky Blue without missing a beat).
I’ll definitely put together a look using some of these shades, but after playing around with some combos on my eyes (nothing finished!), I like the way these blend together. They’re very smooth and apply evenly. The packaging is simple and functional–plastic square flip-top compacts. The back of the compact has a colored label and labeling information, so while I could see clear lids being more functional, the backs do give you a good idea as to what’s inside. I would, though, like to find out who names the colors, because they never seem to quite work…
At the moment, Korres has their eyeshadows marked down to $7–so, I’d say at that price, these are most certainly a steal!

Recommendation: If you like softer, more muted variations on color, Korres Eyeshadows seem to offer a selection of shades that will give you color without being bright or too bold.
