|L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Quads|
Hello lovelies! I hope each and every one of you is having a lovely day. I certainly am. Any day where I can spend a solid three hours playing with beauty products is a successful day for me. I found a new photography set up and have been on a roll with my photos lately. Have any of you noticed a difference?
Anyways, with my successful day I found a few minutes to mess around with some amazing new eye shadows on the market. The L’Oreal Colour Riche Eye Shadow Quads are out in 20 different colour combinations to choose from and I am super excited. I love the variation on colours with the bright hues and bold dark shadows. I have one bold one and one more neutral quad to show you today, Love To Hate Me and Perfume ID. I have never used any Colour Riche shadows before so this is really exciting.

My first thoughts were that the colour combinations are chosen well and I can see the differences between the neutral quads and the smoky ones and such. I also love the packaging, especially the instructions on the back. I love experimenting with makeup but I find it so helpful to have that simple step-by-step guide right on the back.

As for the colours themselves I did like quite a few of them, and together they went well. The pigmentation varied per each shade in the quads. I found that Perfume ID had smooth shades that all showed up fairly well on my tanned skin, which can sometimes be a struggle. Typically bronze or gold shadows blend into my skin too much but these were opaque enough to stand out. I liked the shimmer a lot. The two skinny line swatches of the bottom two shadows in the quad were my favourite of the four. I really liked the shimmer and depth of the shades.

In the Love To Hate Me quad I liked the bold colours but the combination of them on my eyes in the way they were intended was difficult to see. I really liked the blue/purple since it had a violet indigo hue to it. In the pan it totally looks like navy blue but in my swatches it purple. I loved the way it went with my brown eyes. The white shadow in this quad really didn’t show up on me at all, which was disappointing. The bottom two (again the skinny swatches) were nicely opaque and I loved the shimmer of the third one. That had a greyish green kind of colour and I think it was my favourite of all eight colours today.
All in all these shadows are pretty smooth and silky, they blend well and have a great range of colour choices. The quads make it easy to put together combinations of shadows and the packaging was really nice. Some colours need a bit more opacity for my skin tone, but other made up for the slack with their intense shimmer and lovely depth. Even if just for those two skinny swatches of shadow I would definitely say I will be using these quads in some way or another.
Thanks for stopping by!
