Oriflame Pure Colour Eye Shadow Palette Blues and Lilacs
Hello Girls! Like most of you, I had just been a Kajal & Lipgloss person but thanks to blogging I’m finally entering the make-up world & trying to understand the mastery of makeup! I haven’t got all the bits & bobs of make-up stuff but I’m trying to collect a few economical ones & then start practising before I buy all the high end products! So I bought this Eye shawdow palette from Oriflame to get the skill! Thanks to Rati & all the IMBBians like Mrunmayee, Deeptima, Fathima Sireesha, Suma, Insiya , Jinal , Margaret, Cali , Urmi, Beenii, for the lovel tuts on IMBB! I’m sorry if I’m missing out others! 🙂
Just wanted to say this quote because I believe make-up blogging has been guiding me towards something (make-up) that gives me bliss.
“You learn more quickly under the guidance of experienced teachers. You waste a lot of time going down blind alleys if you have no one to lead you.” By W. Somerset Maugham
Ok chalo ,I know I drove you all to boredom, so I’ll go ahead & tell you all about this Eye shawdow palette. 😉

My Experience with the Oriflame Eye Shadow Palette
Oriflame Pure color Eye shadow palette is available in the form of two palettes- One with Blues & Lilacs & the other one in Greens & Browns. I bought the Blue & Lilacs Palette. The palette is in a simple case with 5 shades & 2 applicators. There shades are not given any name. The texture of the eye shawdows is creamy, the first, second & the fifth color have a little glitter to it & suitable for doing party make up. I guess the first color can be used as a highlighter too! These colors are perfect for this winter season. The staying power of the eye shadows isn’t good; it stays just for 3 hours, so this is just suitable for practice. I hate the dual-ended sponge applicators from the palette; the quality of the sponge isn’t that good!
Pros of the Eyeshadow palette
- The shades are beautiful! My favourite is the first & second one.
- Suitable for party-makeup practice
- Not much fall off!
- Packaging is simple & travel-friendly.
Cons of the Eyeshadow palette
- Staying power is too bad, doesn’t stay for more than 3 hours.
- Little expensive considering there are other well known brands like Faces & Lakme offering eye-quartets at almost the same price.
- I found the 3rd & 4th color don’t blend well.
- Applicators are of bad quality.
I kind of have a love-hate relationship with the palette, I like the colors but but I dislike the fact that they don’t stay for long time but I guess I’m expecting too much! I don’t know 🙁
P.S This is the first time I’m writing a post on eye shadow palette, so please forgive if I have written it too bad & please provide suggestions.
Will I recommend this! I don’t think so considering the staying power!
Will I repurchase this! NO! I’ll try some other eye palette in the same price range! Do you girls have any suggestions for me?
