Frankly, I like only a few products by Street Wear. Initially I had a lot of their lipsticks which came in a transparent casing with a round mirror in the cap. These days I love their satin lipsticks in Candy Treat and Fruity Fawn. The quality is always above average and you can hope to get some value for what you pay. I bought this eye shadow because I was looking for something copper for my eyes to be paired with black on the outer corner. The stay on tag on this eye shadow claims to stay on for 8 hours and claims to be a long wear, crease resistant formula for complete coverage and true color. Well, I did not find it to be true. 🙁 I have a mixed opinion on this product. Price: Rs 425 for a quad, when I bought it. I think they are charging us only for the stay on factor which in the first place does not exist.
Key ingredients: dimethicone, boron nitride, talc, nylon-12, iron oxides
When I bought this shadow, there was an offer with Street Wear where I needed to buy products worth 1000/- to get a make up brush kit free! The brushes were really tempting so I picked every thing up. This shadow comes in silver card board casing and another sponge casing. In spite of all this, one of the colours (the top left one) inside was shattered! I could not believe that the SA did not check while giving it to me. It’s completely her loss not mine. I am never going to that Street Wear counter in that particular Westside store. The packaging is sleek and silver with a wide mirror inside and a pink colored two sided applicator. Now for the only good part, there are four copper shades inside which are all very beautiful. The top left one has the maximum glitter, and the amount of glitter reduces as we move clock wise. I can say that is the only difference between the four shades. 🙁 When I swatched it, at home, the first color was so full of glitter and kept falling all over the place. Only the bottom left color has a slightly bronze effect, rest all are copper. The colors are smooth but not really that great to talk about. They can be packed on the eye but the glitter in one of them falls all over my face. It falls on my eye lashes. That color also is very bright and iridescent and the glitter seems to be of some cheap quality or like loose glitter from some art and craft store. The top right color also has glitter but the particles are smaller. It does not glide on the eye lid. The bottom right color has shimmer and that’s the true copper I can actually wear. The bottom left color is bronzy and glides on well, but, it does not stay for even thre whole hours, I don’t have a base so I was really disappointed with the creasing. This color was actually good to look at. All the colors smudge easily. Then why call it stay on? The verdict: it seems like the four colors in the quad are all of different quality. Surprisingly, the quality goes from cheap to better as one moves clock wise from top left. The glitter is over the top which makes it impossible to use all the four colors. I am still confused about the real intention of this product, all the colors are similar. So did they want to provide similar colors with varying amount of glitter and shimmer? The long stay claim fails miserably. Then what was actually the USP of this product? I bought it only for the copper color. But it is not some thing that one would expect for Rs 425. You can safely give it a miss unless you are really keen on buying copper eye shadows. This product is very average over all and really needs improvements on quality, coming from a brand like Street Wear. Here I would also like to mention that never ever buy lip pencils from this brand. They cost you 155rs but drag and tear your lips like a ten rupee lip pencil. It is made in China and is worse than those non brand Chinese lip pencils that flood the market. I would say those Chinese pencils are smoother than Street Wear. I have Pink Line and Brown Line lip pencils from this brand and they are awful. May be I should review that to save your money. But you can safely pass this brand as they are going from bad to worse.
