Lotus PURESTAY Long Lasting Eye Shadows-Collection, Swatches,EOTD

Hello Ladies!

Put your hands together for the gorgeous, stunning collection of eye shadows from Lotus herbals PURESTAY range! I feel privileged to review them for you because they surpass my expectations. First off, I would like to say that all the three palettes cover so much of shades in each that you feel like you have an entire color palette. Second thing I would like to point out, is that do not have any mattes included in them.  Most of them are metallic, shimmer,pearl and satin finishes.

Personally, I don’t like mattes on my eyes. They can make me look very dull. I would chose satin and pearl for a nude look and for the night, I pick up metallic. Sometimes I would throw in a metallic just right above the lashes and some matte for the crease.

This range has come in with three shades, “Serene Wonder”, “Electric Glaze”, and “Rainbow Passion”.Lets see the colors and finishes involved in each of them. :)

lotus purestay eyeshadows serene wonder

Serene Wonder(Rati’s favorite) is the more neutral one. It has a rusty pink, a bight barbie pink, a deep brown and light beige shade. Remember these are all shimmer and metallic finishes. The shadow can work for a day-out,the pink rust shade can even be bridal and the brown is a versatile smoky brown where as the light one is a great light combo with the brown I just mentioned. Personally I would use the lightest one on the lid and then go with the deeper brown in the crease and done!

The Electric Glaze is my personal favorite.The reason being the colors involved. The palette covers so many shades, not really coordinated and this can work in favor from some. This one has a deep purple (used in the EOTD) a pure rust, a purple brown and a gorgeous khaki in it. Now you see what I mean, 4 different colors in one palette.When you use one of it with any neutral matte shade, you are sorted.

Then comes the Rainbow Passion one. It has got a bright aqua blue, a bright light purple, a gorgeous light metallic brown and a light beige-pink shade. I would say this a great bet for  bright cum neutral palette.

These are supplied with a brush cum sponge, it is two-sided and has a very usable brush to one end and another end has a sponge on it .I have used the same applicator for the EOTD :). The packaging is again mirror-finish and there is a huge mirror inside which is again very useful. The satin pouch they are supplied with, again, are gorgeous and keep your heavy pink case of shadows safe and pretty forever.

Coming to the ease of application. The shadows are extremely soft. They are satiny to feel and don’t fly all over the place. These are not chalky at all and very pigmented. The colors are bright I agree, but you have to look at how they have covered so many shades in one. So, all you need is a basic black or brown aside(which all of us own) and then you can create so many looks. The shadows show up well without a base too. They should last four hours on oily lids and I wore them on a base and they lasted me more than 6 hours after which too, I did not see any obvious reason to touch them up. The shadows are tightly packed but still feel silky smooth and don’t have much fallout. But having said that, try to pick up less at a time as they are deep and pigmented.

The only issue I can see with some users is that these dont have mattes in them and the colors are not coordinated .But on the positive side,you need a separate basic brown / black and there you are! So many colors in one palette to chose from and you can create as many looks as you want. The only matte shade is the one is “rainbow passion” in light purple, rest all are pearl, shimmer and metallic. I have used the rust and the deep purple from the “electric glaze” palette to create the smokey purple look. I used a black liquid liner, the Konad falsies and and blended some brown too from the palette in the crease.

Last word:

Though they don’t have mattes in them. these are a joy for shadow lovers because of the varied colors each one has. If you have a separate basic black/brown to work with, these palettes can be a wonder to use.Extremely soft and pigmented, these silky soft shadows are a must-have,choose your color!
