Recently Oriflame has added couple of new products to the giordani gold range... I have already reviewed the CC Cream (HERE) and iconic lipsticks (HERE and HERE). There are also launched three eyeshadow quads which are named as Smokey Grey, Divine Brown and Radiant Plum . I have the shade Radiant Plum with me and trust me it is a very beautiful pallete . Find below all the details regarding the product...
PRICE - Rs 1199/- for 5.2gms.
SHELF LIFE - 3years from mfg.
PACKAGING - The eyeshadow quad has very classy and super sturdy packaging... I love the royal black case. There is an inbuilt mirror inside the palette which makes the on-the-go application so easy.. There is also a dual end sponge applicator which obviously have no use... I wish they should provide a flat brush applicator instead of the sponge applicator one. The palette comes inside a cardboard box which has all necessary information...
SHADES & TEXTURE - I have the shade Radiant Purple.. The name itself indicates that it is a purple related shade.. The palette is a perfect combination of both shimmer and matte shades... There is a very pretty shimmery champagne shade, one matte finish brown-ish purple shade, one shimmery plum-ish purple shade and one matte finish white shade...
Texture wise all the shades are superb... Smooth, soft and creamy texture, no fall out while applying on lids. The champagne shade can also be used as a highlighter. I love the colour combination of this palette.
PIGMENTATION & STAYING ABILITY - All the shades are super pigmented except the plum-ish purple one (the fourth shade)... It is sad that the prettiest shade of the palette is less pigmented, you need to swipe 3-4 times to get the perfect colour... Other than that rest three shades are super pigmented... With a good primer, the colours will pop up more... It stays around 5-6hours on my lids without any primer, and the lifetime will increase more with a primer I am sure... The palette is perfect for creating fall makeup look.
