VDL really reminds me of a Korean version of MAC. The similar packaging and wide range of products resemble MAC a lot and so I had really high expectations for their products.
These range of eyeshadows come in a very standard eyeshadow pot. The cap is see through so it is easy to see exactly which eyeshadow it is. It is quite sturdy, I feel that if I drop them (*touch wood*) they will not break easily. 903 Sparkle Bronze is exactly as the name suggests, it is a glittery bronze copper colour. 107 Sun Shine is really unique, it is a pinky-gold colour that leans more pink on the eyelids. It is more of a satin eyeshadow in comparison to the Sparkle range.
These eyeshadows are absolutely amazing. They are highly pigmented and creamy to the touch. They apply so nicely on the eyes and blend out really easily. The colours are gorgeous and look just as amazing on the eyes as they do when swatched on the hand. Even when I build the colour up, the pigmentation is still similar to what it looks like when I swatch really lightly once. It is amazing!

These eyeshadows last all day on me with very minimal transfer without primer (I have really oily eyelids). I really do recommend these eyeshadows if you can get your hands on them. I do not have anything negative to say.
