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

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?
