My friend, Sara, asked me to accompany her to beauty counters at Isetan Shinjuku (my beauty hood), and help her purchase some core products. As we were roaming around, she asked me what my "all-time favorite" Japanese cosmetic brand was? Now, I don't believe in  having just one "favorite". I mean, why pigeonhole oneself when you have so many tantalizing options, right?!

Of course, I loved them all, but I have to say my top favorite brands are THREE, Addiction, Sonia Rykiel. and Laduree. During the conversation, I realized, I need to showcase my collection from these brands

THREE 4D Eye Palette 02 My Blue Heaven. 

I own all of the THREE 4D Eye Palettes, and there isn't a dud in the bunch. THREE eye shadows apply wonderfully; they have this magical way of just blending themselves, and I love them all!

THREE 4D Eye Palette 02 My Blue Heaven Swatches.

Color description from left to right

A glittery, bright sky blue, with a violet sheen.

A warm-toned, tarnish olive green, with gold and chartreuse shimmers, cream eyeshadow.

A yellowish-brown-based, tarnish olive-khaki with pink shimmers. Basically, the eye shadow version of 07 Eye Doll Flash Performance Eyeliner Pencil.

A pale, manila yellow, with silver and yellow shimmers. 

The color combination in this palette makes 02 My Blue Heaven sublimely, empyrean.

Besides having the THREE logo branded on, and coordination with, one of the 4D Eye Palette  shades in the palettes, I also find their names whimsical and witty. I wonder if the 02 My Blue Heaven palette is named after the 1927 song with the same name?...I love the Gene Austin version.

Which THREE 4D Eye Palette would you like to try?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. OMG, these shadows are amazing! I just love the iridescent and slightly transparent quality of the blue, it's unlike any blue I've seen!

    1. The blue shadow in this quad is spectacular! A gorgeous accent shade over any eyeshadow.

  2. These eyeshadows are gorgeous! I can't wait to get my hands on a few Three quads. Thanks for the swatches

    1. I LOVE all things THREE. I would love to know that items are on your "want" list dancergirltl.

  3. Liz, you look beyond gorgeous in that blue eyeshadow! Can't say I'm not jealous of your access to Japanese brands. Maybe one day :)

    1. Why thank you darling Monika ;) Whenever you're ready to take the plunge, just let me know.

  4. lmao! I'm cracking up that you took this picture 3 years ago!!! Liz, I just started playing around with this and trying to figure out how to make the blue show up so intensely. Wow, I love how intensely it is showing up on you. You look just incredible.

    1. LOl, gurl, I have tons of product pics from over the years on my laptop :P How is the palette working for you? I found Stila's #5 All Over Shadow Brush works wonderfully with THREE's glittery shadows.

  5. definitely one of my favorite THREE quads.
