In Detail Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eye Shadow Review, Shades, Swatches, Price and my experience
I love how the shiny black case of these eye shadows. Its got the basic information at the back. What I am really impressed with is the amount of thought and effort that went into the outer packaging of this product. Outermost is the carton box. Then we have this sponge padded cardboard case which actually acts like a shock absorber and prevents the eye shadow from breaking or displacing. Quite lovely indeed.
I got the gold variant of the palette since I am huge fan of gold shades in almost everything. The illuminating range is supposed to full of things which have shimmers, glitters or sparkles – or may be I thought so however, this palette surprisingly is not overly glittery. There are these shades which are almost purely matte and then there are shades which have an illuminating sheen to them. There is no shade which has some bang on glitter on shimmer.
These shadows have a decent pigmentation and pretty workable. I am not very heads over heels with the texture because its not as luxuriously velvety soft as I expected. These kind of need building up in order to show well on the eyes. So I think this is quite nice for the beauties who like to wear subtle pigments on their eyes. Because all the shades are not so dramatic, I find them perfect for day time wear. The best part about these eye shadow pigments is their wear time which is approximately 6-7 hours on my oily lids.
Let me take you through all the shades. The shades have not been names by the brand, nor have been given a number so lets do one thing, we will give them some numbers for the sake of review so that you may be able to relate my swatches better with the pictures.
