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

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. An applicator sponge 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 bak of the packaging with all the ingredients mentioned.


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

The shade are:

  • A shimmery peachy golden shade.
  • a yellow gold shade(very bright).
  • a pale shimmery pink shade great for highlighting the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes.
  • a champagne brown shade.


All the shades are shimmery.they are soft and pigmented.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.In thr look that i have created,i applied the yellow gold on the centre of the eyelids and chamapgne brown on the outer corners.Highlighted the brow bone with pale shimery pink which is a great shade for everyday wear and office wear.I applied the peachy gold in the inner corners of the eyes.

see how the yellow shade looks metallic..<3 <3
