Colorgram Milk Velvet Shadow 01 Milk Tea Latte Review:
If you ever read my review about A’Pieu Eye mousse, then you must’ve known that I love that product so much. I’m planning to get all shades to try but then I stumbled upon this product when I was searching for a matte liquid shadows. If you haven’t heard about Colorgram, it’s a Korean brand and if I’m not mistaken, you can get it from Olive Young, a well-known place where you can find unique and rare brands (it’s like a drugstore).
I heard about Colorgram but it’s only about their lip tint. There’s almost no review about their liquid shadow but I decide to try it because the shade range is really my style. It consists of 6 shades – 2 mattes, 2 pearly mattes, and 2 shimmers. I’m not too interested to their shimmer shades but the mattes one are really pretty! All of the matte is in neutral tone so it’s wearable for everyday and will suit every skin tone as well. Because of how much I love the shade, I had a hard time in choosing only one.
Lately matte liquid shadow starts to get recognition in Korea, even brand like Etude House starts making it as well so I’m really excited to try it all. I have oily eyelids so with a matte liquid shadow I can achieve a perfect matte look in just a minute. If you have oily lids like I do, I highly suggest you to try matte liquid shadow!

Colorgram Milk Velvet Shadow 01 Milk Tea Latte Review:
I know Colorgram is one of the more ‘eccentric’ brand, with all of their colorful and fun packaging but actually for this shadow they didn’t look as fun as the Colorgram lip tint one. Maybe it’s because the shadows are all in neutral shades? But I do like the purple lid though, it matches the brown shade inside the bottle so well.
The bottle size is tinier than the A’pieu one and as expected, it has less product compared to A’Pieu but with more expensive price. The thing is, if you see both shade range, you will see that Colorgram has more various tones such as pink, brown, coral, and orange while the A’Pieu one is more on the lighter side such as corals and brown.
The shade I got is 01 Milk Tea Latte, the third lightest shade out of the 6 shades. On the official picture, it looks like pinkish brown shade but when I swatch it on my hand, the brown side is more vivid. I think it’s because I have neutral – yellow undertone so the brown is more obvious, but on cool undertone, I believe the shade will look like a true pink brown.
Even though the shade doesn’t look like on the picture on me, I still really like it. It’s a perfect n*de for my skin tone and it can be combined with every shades in my collection so it’s a really versatile color.
It has short wand and flat-shaped doe foot applicator. The flat shape picks up enough product and it helps distribute the shadow evenly on my eyelids.But because the shape is a little bit too wide, it can pick too much product for my liking. I only need a little amount of shadow on my each eyelids so most of the time I just dab a pea-sized amount then blend it with a fluffy eye brush.
At first I thought the texture would be similar to the A’Pieu one, but the Colorgram one has way more thin and runny texture and it’s way easier to blend even with a dense brush.
Usually for a liquid shadow like this, I would use my finger because it makes the shadow blend easier but thanks to its texture, I can blend the shadow in just a few seconds without any difficulties at all! My favorite brush to blend the shadow is Real Techniques’ eye brushes but any soft and fluffy eye brushes will do.
Even though it has a runny texture, once it blends it will turn into a matte powdery finish. It doesn’t set too fast so I still have time to blend it properly. I always use this shade all over my eyelids as a base then I put a dark/deep eyeshadow on the outer part of my eyes to make those area look as if they have more depth.
Even though it’s very matte, glitter and shimmer shadows work perfectly fine on top of the shadow so I think it’s really perfect either as a daily eye look or a glam eye look.
The longevity is pretty amazing, it beats my favorite from A’Pieu eye mousse actually because it has a tad bit longer lasting power and it feels as if I didn’t use makeup! Once it set, it will stay forever and it won’t budge. I do have very oily eyelids so to see the shadow stay without any creasing is amazing. To remove it, you have to use a good micellar water or a gentle cleansing oil.
Overall I can see myself purchasing other shades from this collection, that’s how much I love this shadow! In my opinion it’s okay to splurge a little bit more money but I got the best quality from this liquid shadow.
If you have oily eyelids, I highly recommend this product, if your eye makeup often crease or break apart, try this shadow as a base, I’m sure your eye makeup will last much longer.
