Skintone – Fair to medium; Skintype – combination to acne prone
I am not really into eyeshadows as my on-the-go look includes only the lipstick and some eye makeup with probably cute winged eyeliner. But when I spotted this little eye-shadow palette, I knew I had to pick it up because it has 3 beautiful festive shades and I usually wear eye-shadows only during the festive season! So let’s see if this eye-shadow trio worked for me!
Price: $1.49/Rs 100 (Isn’t it a steal?)
Product Description by L.A Colors:
Enhance Eyes With These New Bright, Bold Shades!
• Quality ingredients
• Long wear all day
• Professionally selected
A trio of long-wearing eyeshadows in one chic palette. Three expertly coordinated shades can be worn alone or together to create an array of looks. Complete with dual ended applicator.
My Experience with L.A Colors CES445 Sunflower 3 Color Eyeshadow:
Packaging: The eye-shadow trio comes in a little palette which looks extremely cute. I love how small it is, which makes it perfectly handy. I could easily carry this palette for a wedding and I would be done because the shades will suit all the outfits. Yes, I need to be cautious that I don’t drop it or else it might just break. The eye-shadows come in circular pans with a cute sunflower pattern engraved over it. It is accompanied with a simple dual ended brush for application. Adding to it, the palette is a see-through one, so it is very easy to spot if you own a few of these.
Shades, Pigmentation and Finish: The shades of this palette are really very beautiful and perfect for the festive season. It has a gold which is a super bright with yellow tinge, a beautiful copper shade with rusty hints and one bronze shade which looks like a blend of brown and bronze. All the shades have a shimmery base which makes them look even prettier. I have had certain palettes which had shades which easily blended with each other and looked the same. But despite of this palette having just 3 shades and costing so less, each shade looked different than the other. The shades look equally beautiful alone or when used in an eye make-up look together. The pigmentation and the colour pay-off are just great. I love the look that gets created with these shades. The finish is a bit powdery but it sets well if a concealer or a primer is used beneath.
Staying power: The colours stay nicely for 4-5 hours and even more if I apply a concealer or a primer beneath these shadows. They do fall-out during application but once applied, it does not fall much on my face. However it loses a little pigmentation as time passes by but that is normal with all the eye-shadows.
But for this price, I think they are a total steal!
