Following are the swatches when done with the applicator. Pretty good na! ๐Ÿ™‚

But I don’t use applicator to do eye makeup. I use brushes and that’s the pay off when applied with the brushes. These are two swipes of colour each. I used a flat shader brush , which I use to pack the colour on my eyes. The colour pay off of bronze, green and golden is quite decent but purple is quite poor. Also I have no idea how to use the green with this quad. Golden green go together.I tried, I didn’t like the outcome. the purple doesn’t blend with anything. You keep swiping the brush on your lid and you would get a “hint” of colour on your eyes.

These are when applied with brush. Only midnight grey actually shows. Pink is such that would make anyone look ill. I can’t work with this quad at all. The colours are powdery, the pay off is bad and they don’t blend into each other.

My overall experience with Lakme Eye Quartets :

  • First, the quartet are not complete in itself. You cannot create one look using all 4 colours.
  • The textures of all 4 eye shadows is the same. There is nothing to highlight or to put in the crease.
  • Tanjore Rush Eyeshadow Quartet is miles better than the Silk Route . 3 eye shadows out of 4 work pretty well. You can use the gold and bronze for soft every day looks.
  • One one day I wore these eye shadows 1 pm till around 10.30 at night and next day from around 11 a.mย  till around 5 pm in the evening, I didn’t notice any creasing or fading of colour. I used MAC Painterly paint pot as a base but still eye shadows did stick for that long.
  • You can do nothing with the tiny applicators. Probably can use it for inner corners but that’s about it.
  • Silk Route Quartet has a major fall out.
  • My brushes just get filled up with colour every time I pick up a shade. :idk:

Here is the very simple look I did using the Lakme Tanjore Rush Eyeshadow Quartet. Just used gold in the inner third of the eye and bronze in the outer corner. Lined my eyes and applied mascara. I am happy with the way it looked. Simple and no jazz. I have used No 51 Lip gloss .

      Loouuuu you tooo. :-* :-* :-*

  10. Hiya everyone …I tried the eyeshadow colors at the store and I was kinda disappointed with the purple and green in the Tanjore rush palette..they look so good in the pics but not that gr8 when applied…..wish they had the bronze,gold(from tanjore rush) and the peachy pink and midnight black in (from silk route) in one palette

  11. I have never bought Lakme….never like them…their color sense is pretty weird and the quality!!..thats always an issue!!…fall outs everywhere!..i only got a palette as a wedding present…gave it to the maid!!..

    1. Even i used to think like you …that lakme is no good…but after using a couple of products like the colored eye pencils…aquashine lip prods..couple of nail polish shades …i think they do have some nice products…

      of course they dont compare to MAC but then people who love makeup and beauty products will try everything …i think its so much fun n exciting ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yeah, Lakme is quite a mixed brand. Some of their products are good and some of them fail. I have stopped forming an opinion about the brand. I am really enjoying the glosses and kajal from the new collection while the eye shadows are a pain to use..

        SO I am quite neutral. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. hey am not as talented as u in mix n match Rati…am jus a beginner in make up..learning from u…anyways u hav created wonderful looks with such simple colours…kudos…n Rati pls tel me wat makeup remover do u use?The SA at lakme showed me a new makeup remover from Lakme..but Iam not getting it until I get a suggetion from u… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Preetha, I use Fab India cleanser , which works awesome. There are great reviews for Himalaya makeup remover as well. I use olive oil to remove my eye makeup .

      Check archives.. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Would be posting a look using Silk Route quad as well . hope you like it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. I am not too much of an eye shadow person & am a rookee at eye make up…. I just use one shadow at a time & usually stick to a shimmery grey……… I’ll give these a pass I guess

  14. Tanjore Rush looks nice…mite get it.
    Oh and i just thot i shud mention that i always spend more time reading the comments than the review.U guys are hilarious :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :-* :-* :-* :rotfl: :rotfl:
    :silly: LOL
