Jung Saem Mool Refining Eyeshadow Triple in Dark Raspberry Review:
I will not buy more lower quality makeup, not for the makeup itself at least, if I get it it’s for the packages. So when I do decide to buy something for the colors I buy it for the quality. The quality of the pigment, the intensity, all those things.
If you read my previous JSM reviews you might have figured their quality is quite good, comparable to MAC and NYX. Regardless of reading them or not, I must say this product surpasses those!

How to use:
Apply the eyeshadow on the eyelids using a brush or a finger.
Artist Tip (from the website):
* Tip for vibrant color payoffs: Adding matt eyeshadow creates greater color intensity than using the paste type alone.
* Tip for long lasting makeup: First, apply paste type eyeshadow and then apply glitter eyeshadow. Applying matte or sparkling type on the cream eyeshadow allows fade-resistant and long lasting makeup.
* Add glamorous sparkling shadow on the inner corner of the eyes and on the crease for sophisticated looks.
* When using a glitter type, apply it with a patting motion to avoid fallout.
* Use with other shades of eyeshadow for more captivating looks.
My Skin Type: Oily T, dry U, sensitive, blemishes easily, and allergic. Dry, sensitive and allergic lips. Very thin, dehydrated and oily eyelids.
Jung Saem Mool Refining Eyeshadow Triple in Dark Raspberry Review:
Important detail number one! These triple eyeshadows have the brand name on the package. And (even though my photo isn’t good, apologies) the color of the letters is the same as the colors you bought! So, in the Dark Raspberry package it’s purple, in the pink package the letters are pink, and so on. It’s true, I checked!
Other than the information on the back on the package (in English) these are the only two pieces of information available. You can find all the necessary information on their website, both in English and in Korean! With the exception of the ingredients, but I provided that for you.
But you should really read them this time – Ruby powder??
The outside paper box also contains this small identification tag, since the outer package is generic and the same regardless of the color you buy. Which actually makes me want to get rid of the paper box for the first time in my life!
As opposed to the Modern and Chic eye shadow palette, this one doesn’t have a fancy magnet system that “just opens” and “just closes”, it has a simple click system. But it’s okay, it’s a really unimportant detail since it’s still quite easy to open and close!
I exaggerated the lights here so that you could see how the color textures shine differently. The famous paste shadow is on the right, with the brand name, in all available colors. This features a glorious sparkle, some other color palettes include a shimmer instead.
It’s pretty explanatory but I think it shows the richness of the colors. The middle/matte color is so matte and so rich it’s like velvet!
Velvet (the fabric) shines if the hairs are in a certain angle, and in another angle they are so matte they absorb all light.
This is how the colors look most of the time.
I took this photo because I thought it interesting how the sparkle shadow has different particle sizes. It also has white and at least two different shades of raspberry.
I apologize for the creepy photos but I wanted to show the duration as best as possible. Since I have hooded eyelids there is always some gathering on the eyelid, and some washing off right above it.
However, this is so far the only eye shadow that I reviewed that didn’t wash off the color during the day (with that exception that no one sees because of my hooded eyes).
If you read my reviews I guess you already know the general type of eye makeup I wear. I promise to be more bold on my reviews from now on! And to take better photos, but that takes time to learn.
This is an image from the website, where Jung Saem Mool the artist herself shows some looks you can create with the eyeshadows. I think, depending on your eye shape, you can do all of these with any of these eye shadow colors.
Obviously mine is the last one… But feel free to try everything! I also tried the So French Jasmine look by using a simple base color, the raspberry paste shadow blended until the color diluted, and the matte raspberry for the eyeliner. I have also tried the Parrot Green look, by using the paste color and the sparkle only. All with my Raspberry!
So, whereas I’m not thinking of buying any more makeup, I can say I will always consider this brand. This eyeshadow is long lasting, with beautiful pigments, and feels really moist on the eyelids – like a jelly shadow should feel but so often they miss the target!
I know I said great stuff about The Face Shop Marvel eye shadows, and they are good. These ones are just as good if you consider the price quality relation. This is one of those cases that has a bigger price but compensates in quality!
If you’re new to makeup I understand not wanting to invest on such an expensive item, but if you are a makeup lover then… You get my point?
