PACKAGING:The packaging is simple with a plastic transparent outer cover in round shade.The shade can be seen through the flap.The shade name is provided at the back.The packaging is simple and fuss-free.No applicator is provided.The main attraction of the eyeshadow is the floral pattern engraved on the eyeshadow.I don’t use that part also.. 😛 ..it’s so beautiful!!

???????????????????????????????

SHADE:Olive Garden is a shimmery olive-green with golden-brown undertones.Sometimes,it looks like an antique gold shade when swatched.

MY VIEWS:The texture of the shadow is smooth but it isn’t buttery soft.It is easy to apply and blends well with other shades.The shade has nice golden sheen which provides dimension to the look.It can be used alone or along with darker shades to get a smoky look.

Olive Garden is nicely pigmented.The shade has more of golden reflects with slight green hue.It comes out as a sheer wash of golden green in one swipe which can be intensified further.It doesnt crease or fade.The shade stays for about 5 hours on my lids.With a primer the staying power will definitely increase.The shade will come out differently on different skin tones.

???????????????????????????????

RATING:4.25/5

RECOMMENDATION:I like the shade and the formula.The finish is nice.It can be used sheerly as well as with intensity. Also,I have used the shade wet as well and it performs well in that way as well.
