Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Eyeshadows in Smokey pearl and Gold Pearl Swatches & FOTD

Hey everyone!!
I will review these two single eye shadows here that were in my Lakme Absolute Color Illusion collection box. Their packaging reminds me a lot of Sigma single eye shadows. I have one in the shade Grasp.

Price: 750 Rupees for 3.5 g each.You can get these online at Flipkart here

Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Eyeshadows come in a very sturdy and classy looking flip top cap packaging. The cap is really tight enough. They look more like baked eye shadows and have been launched in 8 metallic pearly finish shades.

Smokey Pearl: Smokey Pearl is a shade which kind of floats between grey and navy blue exhibiting cool tones from both the prominent hues, topped off with satiny pearly texture in this enticing duocrome color. Pigmentation is really good though I feel when I swipe the shadow with my fingers it gives an intense swatch however, while used with a brush, it required some time for the color to show up properly on the lids. I have not used an eye primer underneath it the first time I tried this though the second time I did use due to which it becomes quite easy to build up the color.

Gold Pearl: This is my favorite out of the two. This stunning pale gold color that will look flattering on fair to medium skin tones and for dusky tomes using it with light tough will create a mesmerizing effect. Unlike the Smokey pearl, I find this shade to be low on pigmentation but for such a pretty color that should be okay. You really can use it day and night on your lids with just a touch of mascaras. It adds that glimmer on the lids that I personally like a lot! Moreover, it can be used as an inner corner highlight and works just superbly as a brow highlighter too!

Indeed these are pretty color with baked eye shadows like features though I have few things that are bothersome. I find them very pricey for single eye shadows even if the quantity is huge but you just cannot finish up the pan in this lifetime unless you are using it daily which is impractical. Hence, in my opinion the price should have been reduced along with the quantity, which would have made it quite affordable for lot of people out there.

Other than that I feel due to their pearly texture, there have been a lot of fall outs. To take care of the fall outs, make sure that you apply some loose powder and put a tissue under the eyes, to keep the area free from any mess that the fall outs can create especially if you have already done your foundation. Trust me it can be really hard to remove the pearly shimmer once they cling on the skin. In my pictures here, I do see that my face looks a bit white it’s due to as I take pictures in Flash and was testing a new foundation as in how it fares in flash, etc! So, excuse me for that! On the eyelids, this smokey peal looks more blue than grey.

Rating:  3.5 out of 5

Take: Lakme Absolute Color Illusion Eye shadows come in sturdy and beautiful packaging with good color pay off though that can be shade specific. Their pearly texture is enticing and easy to blend but at the same time can have fall outs while blending or patting on the lids, therefore, they ask for some extra care while using them. 
PR Sample though the review is honest!!
