Lakme Botanica Eye Color Quartet - Review, Swatches


What it claims: A heavenly quartet of radiant powders explode to color, shape and highlight your eyes. Inspired by the mysteries of the forest, these botanical shades usher in a rush of fresh color! Brighten your eyes with dewy green, petal pink and gold pastels.

Price: Rs. 425 /-

Part of Lakme Fantasy Collection 2011

Shades:
  • Upper  right: a creamy, pink champaign colored shimmery pastel. Perfect for highlighting or even using as a base underneath other eyeshadows.
  • Upper left: Dark brown with a hint of grey
  • Bottom left: aubergine purple with an undertone of burgundy. 
  • Bottom right: a yellowish – green shade.

What I liked:
  1. The quality of this quad is really nice; the eyeshadows are a little sticky in texture & adhere well. As a result they are pretty long lasting.
  2. The highlighter given in the quad works beautifully as a white base also - applied all over the lid & then topped with your eyeshadows – it makes them pop beautifully with a hint of shimmer
  3. The other 3 shades – purple, brown & green are nice too. I don’t like the green too much coz it shows up with a weird yellow tinge to it, but I can see it working well on a lot of other girls J
  4. Considering that all the colors are very wearable & nice – the price is good!

What I don’t like

  1.  Like the other quads, the texture of this quad too is a little sticky – it is not quite like powder & not quite like cream. The point being that I find it little difficult to blend at times – but then that could be an issue that just I’m facing.


Overall: This is a really nice quad, all the colors are wearable & would go well with Indian skintones.
