L.A.Colors Baked Eyeshadow-Solar review,swatches & EOTD

So,yesterday when I did the colorful pink-green look and was linking the products to their reviews,I realised that I haven’t yet reviewed this quad.I have been using this quad for over a year and it has great shades.Also,the quad is quite versatile.Here’s the review of this beauty:

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

ABOUT:This chic compact of four color harmonized shades contour and highlight eyes, with intense pigments. Provides perfect payoff for a dramatic look. All day-wear eyeshadow!

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

PRICE:$3.99 for 5.5 gms.

PACKAGING:The packaging is average.A transparent lid and black body. A sponge applicator is also provided which is not of much use.It is a bit flimsy and not travel friendly as these eeyshadows have a lot of fallout.The shade name and number are provided at the back of the packaging with all the ingredients mentioned.

I didnt clean the palette just to show the fallout which is TOO MUCH!!

THE QUAD:The quad has 4 shades that are very shimmery.These can be used together to bring up a day look,soft romantic look. A darker shade is absent for smoky look.Nevertheless,the shades are really pigmented.

The shades are:

  • A shimmery champagne gold shade.
  • A gorgeous peachy gold.
  • A shimmery medium rose pink shade..
  • A cranberry pink with minute brown-purple undertones.This shade has warmer undertones.

MY VIEWS:All the shades are shimmery.They are soft and pigmented.Since these are baked shadows,when applied wet,they intensify to a  great extent.These eyeshadows have a lot of fallout.I tried clearing them from the pan but its still obvious.Staying power is around 5-6 hours and.They do crease on oily lids but otherwise,i didn’t see any creasing or fading.All the shades blend easily and they are great for pairing with black for a smoky look.

1st shade(champagne gold) on the brow bone;2nd(peachy gold) shade on the lids;3rd shade(pink) in the crease;4th shade(cranberry) in the outer V of the eyes

I love the outcome of the shades as they look great on all skin tones and can be used for creating various looks.You can opt for smoky pink ,subtle pink,romantic pink,gold pink and many more looks.They shades look great when used alone as well and blend out easily with other shadows and can be applied easily over base or paint pot.

RATING: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: It is indeed a great quad for the shades it offers but I prefer presence of a darker shade as it adds a lot of possibilities and can be used for day and night looks.These shades can be used for subtle,romantic looks.The fallout is a big con and the packaging isn’t travel friendly.Other than that,it is a great quad.
