Review: Missha Jewel Star Eyes in 05 Pecan Pie & 06 Lovely Chocolate


I have been absolutely loving cream eyeshadows lately and I thought I would do a review on these ones by Missha! =) The packaging is quite standard. They come in a glass container with a black screw top lip. Each come with 25 grams of product, which is a large amount considering how little is needed to achieve great pigmentation. The texture is quite interesting, they’re quite hard but are soft to the touch at the same time. They do not feel creamy at all though!


Left: 05 Pecan Pie; Right: 06 Lovely Chocolate

Both of the shades swatch beautifully and are highly pigmented. They also both have a significant amount of glitter in them so if you don’t enjoy glittery eyeshadows then these would not be for you! Pecan Pie is a medium golden brown with gold glitter and Lovely Chocolate is a deep chocolate with silver glitter.


Applied 06 Lovely Chocolate all over the lids as a simple one eyeshadow look

Lovely Chocolate applies really evenly and easily. I just use my fingers to apply these! The colour is buildable and layers really well. However, I find that Pecan Pie just leaves glitter on the eyelids. It doesn’t appear on your eyes as it does in the hand swatch. It is still pretty (considering I do like glitter) but I know that it is a shade a lot of people would be disappointed with. They also do not last the entire day but this might be because I have oily lids so it’s difficult to come across products that don’t crease on me without a primer!

Overall, these can be a hit or miss in terms of performance. I haven’t tried the other shades but considering that the two I have perform quite differently, I can only assume that the other shades would be inconsistent as well. I will continue to use these as a base because they do work well for that purpose! However, they do not last all day by themselves. If you do have drier eyelids then I do not think you will have an issue with these. =)


♡ Great colour payoff

♡ Large amount of product

♡ Works great as an eyeshadow base


♡ Does not last all day

♡ Application of colours inconsistent

    25 GRAMS of product?! Are you sure that’s not a typo!? That’s an insane amount eye shadow, are they expecting you to EAT this stuff?
    The colours are very pretty though! They look like they would be good for travel… if you want to lug 25 grams of eye shadow with you, lol.

    These shades look gorgeous! That is too bad that they don’t last very long. At least you’re getting some use out of them. Thanks for the review! 🙂 xo

        Yes, I only have blackheads on my nose. I haven’t! I haven’t tried any specific blackhead products so I thought I might ask you first ^^ I’ll give it a go! You can buy Biore at any supermarket / pharmacy right (since I live in Australia too)?


      • Dorkchops says:

        Yep! You can buy it at the pharmacy! 😀 I haven’t tried that many but the Biore ones work well! It’s fun but also a bit gross seeing all the gunk on the strip LOL.

    Pretty shades, the pecan pie is a stand out for me (even though I don’t wear eye shadows lol)! 25g seems quite a lot of product too, enjoy it all 😀

      Hehe it stood out to me most when I was swatching them! 😀 But wish it translated the same on the eyes. 😦 LOL someone commented saying that it might be a typo and now I’m not sure HAHA. It seems like so much! :O I’ll definitely enjoy it though!

    I always thought cream shadows and blushes were for little old ladies. But when you get your hands on the right kind for you, they are totes the BEST!

    Thanks for the review. I love cream eyeshadows, too (I may or may not have just purchased two of Tilbury’s new ones, lol). They’re quick and easy, and a lot of times they perform better than their powder counterparts. Hope finals preparations is going well!! XO

      You’re welcome! 😀 Hehe you always get to try out the most amazing products, I’ve yet to pick up something by Tilbury! 😛 I just find cream eyeshadows to be a lot more convenient to use and I love the finish of them too hehe. Thank you so much, I can’t wait to spend more time blogging once uni finishes again! ❤
