For today’s post I was just going through my vanity trying and testing eye shadows for another makeup pictorial when I found this hiding away waiting to be discovered small little eye shadow duo by L’oreal HiP range in CHEEKY.
I have had this eyeshadow duo for more than two years but frankly I havent used them much. Why? I dont really know. I guess its just so small it keeps hiding away.
Now for this particular range I dont understand why it wasnt ever launched in India. Their gel. eyeliners and kohl pigments eye pencils are all so nice.
Coming back to this duo.
PRICE: $8.49 USD
PACKAGING: It is packaged in a small circular plastic case and opens from both sides top and bottom.One side opens to reveal the two eyeshadows divided in semi circles. And the bottom part opens up to reveal a sponge tip applicator. The applicator isnt of much use,so I found the second compartment unnecessary and making the product bulky.
COLOR : One eyeshadow is a cranberry color with a forst finish and the other one is a plum shade with frost finishing as well. There are many eye shadow duos in this range with different finishes ranging from matte, metallic, to frost. All of them have different level of pigmentation so one cant generalize and review the entire range by one eye shadow duo. This review is specific only to this duo.
PIGMENTATION AND TEXTURE: Texture wise these eyeshadows are smooth they are not chalky and they blend easily still they are not the smoothest out there.
Pigmentation wise both the eye shadows are pigmented nicely, it doesnt take much product to get the color exact.
Here is a simple EOTD I did using this eyeshadow duo, nothing too fancy.
OVERALL THOUGHTS ON THE PRODUCT : This is an average product for me, I picked up the duo because of the colors but I didnt find them very impactful, I cant say anything bad about it but its nothing exceptional either. But there are other duos in the range I would definitely try especially the metallic ones.
So that is it for today’s post. Hope you like it.
UNTIL NEXT TIME…
