My Experience With L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Shopping Spree Eye Shadow :
The eye shadow quad comes in a small four pan palette with a transparent lid which has a gold border. I like the way it looks, but unfortunately, the plastic seems to be flimsy and may break easily. Moreover, the golden lid gets scratched very easily and also collects fingerprints!
The lid does close securely, so it will not open up in your makeup bag. But make sure not to put too much pressure on this delicate palette! The transparent lid makes it easier to see the colors in the palette, without having to open the lid.
The palette comes with a double-ended sponge tip applicator. There is no mirror. The label on the back of the palette has some instructions with an image, depicting which portion of the eyelid each color should go on. This is really helpful for beginners.
Color and Finish:
Shade 1 – This is a medium coral shade with a matte finish.
Shade 2 – This is a gold shade with coral undertones and has a shimmer finish.
Shade 3 – This is a medium silvery grey shade with a shimmer finish.
Shade 4 – This is a medium black shade with a matte finish.
This may look like an odd combination of colors at the first glance, but they work really well together and create some beautiful looks. The gold shade with coral undertones is very unique and co-ordinates extremely well with the coral shade in this quad. This is the convenience of quads! I would never have thought of using these four shades together myself!
All the shadows in this palette have good pigmentation. The coral and black shades are not very dark, but stay in the medium color range which I actually like. The colors apply true to the pan color.
All the four shades have a smooth texture. They are easy to apply and blend well. I was initially concerned that the matte shades might be chalky, as with many drugstore mattes. But I was surprised. They apply well without any patchiness and blend easily. There is some minor fallout, which can be avoided if you tap the excess off the brush before applying.
Longevity is pretty good with this quad. Even without a primer, they last on my oily lids for around 7 hours, after which I notice some fading. With a primer, they last through the day.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Shopping Spree Eye Shadow :
