I have a love-hate relationship with drug store eye shadows. Sometimes I get a palette that amazes me and other times I get one that leaves much to be desired. When I first spotted the Color Riche Quads by L’Oreal the dazzling shimmer and great color combinations were irresistible! There are 20 impressive palettes to choose from with shades ranging from neutrals, blues, purples and teals. I love how beautifully matched and vivid they are for creating a variety of looks for every season.
The first palette I have is called 230 Perpetual Nude, it is on the subtle side with a combination of copper gold, rose gold, yellow gold and bright silver for highlight. This is a great everyday palette and I like the light finish and soft effect. These shades are easy to pull-off and suitable for most complexions.
The texture of the shadows is a tad rough due to the fine glitter particles on top but they are non-flaky and the quality is very good. The shadows provide consistent, full-coverage and although the top layer contains the highest concentration of shimmer once it rubs away you can still achieve a nice metallic sheen.
Incredible Grey is my favorite palette! I love smokey looks using grey, silver and black and these shades are as pigmented and rich as they appear in the packaging. This is a great palette for a night out on the town or a special event because the colors create the perfect deep, sultry effect.
The shadows are also highly pigmented, long-wear, non-creasing and they are easy to work with. The small size makes them ideal for travel and the colors build and blend nicely. I definitely recommend checking these out, they retail for $7.95 and you can view the entire collection by clicking HERE.
