I first bought an eyeshadow way back in 2007. OK not too long ago. I was looking for a matte black eyeshadow and I got the Lakme Moondust quad then. I've bought 2 more Moondust quads since then. Not because I finished the product, but because I broke it! Oh and I got one as a back up. Yes, I used to be a hoarder. The makeup blog detox diet last year cured me. I swear!But then by 2009 or 10, I think I bought the rest of these quads and this is one pre beauty blogging shopping decision I don't regret! Ooh I have a million of those!
Price: Rs 425. I got these for Rs 325 long back! And that was awesome!
General thoughts on Lakme Quads-
These are buttery and smooth. Most of the colours are beautifully pigmented. and last well on a base like a MAC Paintpot or a Maybelline Color Tattoo. These are easy to blend. See I don't really have
Quad 1: Peacock
Quad 4: Moondust
I'm a typical Indian girl who does kajal (and liner and mascara and only started filling in her eyebrows recently) but no eyeshadow on a regular basis. So I'm only figuring stuff out. And now that I've gotten these (7th time clicked) pictures from my drafts, I'm definitely going to look at more eye looks and try to incorporate these colours in them.The bronze-y brown colour is darker in reality and is duo toned (bronze and matte brown. Look at the second picture below) which can make it easier to wear for some. But on me, this looks like a bruise. (My eye area is darker than the rest of my face) I think I'll try using it in the crease or corners for an extra subtle smokey eye look.
The black is the reason I bought the quad in the first place. You know what, I love it. It's not extremely pigmented and I did have to go over a few times to get the intensity in the photo, but then it's black. It's good that it's sheer. or it would over power the rest of the colours. It's not buttery smooth but I've seen that only the shimmery colours are that easy in this range. It is slightly chalky and there can be fall out if used too much at a time.
The chalky white that looks like chalk, no comments.
