Review: L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Eye Shadow in What Happens In Vegas

 IMG_2166

I love colourful eye shadow palettes, especially inexpensive sleek ones! L’Oreal Paris, as a brand, has been around for a while now. They are known to make quality drugstore makeup products, especially eye shadows (for a fraction of the price of expensive brands). This particular eye shadow quad is from their Colour Riche line. The eye shadows in this line are supposed to be super silky in texture and rich in colour (hence the name). L’Oreal believes that these quads are pigment-packed shades that have been created to coordinate expertly with one another, so that you can wear all four shadows together or separately. This particular palette is from their “Brazen Bold” eyes selection. This quad comes with a detailed re-creatable look in the back and a mini shadow applicator brush. The shadows are supposed to be velvety rich in formula so that it’s easy to blend. The name of this palette, What Happens In Vegas, is in perfect harmony with the colours featured. The colour selection includes a bright shimmery orange, a shimmery yellow cream, a matte orange and a shimmery/sparkly brown.

My Verdict?

This is my go-to palette whenever I’m wearing traditional Indian clothing (sarees, kameez, etc). The shadows coordinate really well with one another and you can also wear these by themselves. I find that this particular quad makes my brown eyes pop even more. The shadows are very velvety and buttery smooth in texture. They also blend really well without feeling powdery. The shimmery brown shadow is one of my favourite colours to use when I’m creating a smoky eye (especially for a South Asian inspired look). The shadows are pretty well pigmented. With that being said, there was one downside to this product as a whole. I found that if I used these eye shadows without an eye shadow primer, then there was a little fall out. But, with an eye shadow primer, I didn’t have that issue at all. The longevity was great because of the primer I was using and there was no creasing. All in all, this is a pretty good quality product and is completely worth purchasing (at less than $10 CDN). I was quite impressed with the quality of this quad and I cannot wait to add more of the other quads in my makeup stash! You can purchase this at any drugstores that sells L’Oreal products!

Happy Shopping Dolls! x

Pros:

  • Inexpensive
  • Pigmented
  • Buttery smooth, velvety soft texture
  • All four colours work well together, can also be worn alone
  • Super sleek palette, perfect for traveling, includes an applicator brush

Cons:

  • There is a little fall out for some of the shades, but if you use a good eye shadow primer you can avoid it.

Rating: 8.5/10 (A very inexpensive yet great palette! If you’re looking to try a bold brazen eye, this is the palette to purchase!)
