Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Quartet In Desert Rose Review, Swatches

I'm mostly a matte girl when it comes to eyeshadows but your party\function makeup wouldn't be complete without some shine in it, would it? ;)
I love Lakme products always as they are easily available and decently priced.
I love the 9 to 5 range a lot so I decided to pickup a few quads from this range. These quads carry so much of drama and they just give you the perfect drama for parties :D

What The Brand Says?

How To Use?

Step 1: Using the sponge applicator and line your eyes in just one sweep.
Step 2: Create different looks by smudging with the applicator or use your fingers.
Step 3: Mix 2 or more shades to create new looks.

My Views On Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Quartet In Desert Rose

The quad comes in a square plastic casing in the signature rose gold kinda shade. It has a transparent lid helping to get a peep of the shades. The quad comes with an applicator which is totally useless! They could've swapped it for an in-built mirror! The packaging is quite sturdy making it convenient to carry around.

Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Quartet In Desert Rose comes with 4 shades - A golden highlight shade, a pale pink shade, a copper and a bronze shade all with satin finish. There are no matte finish shadows in this entire range.
The gold can be used as an inner corner highlighter or as a brow bone highlight, the pink and copper can be used as all over lid color and the bronze can be used as an outer V color or for crease.

The shadows have a silky finish and a little goes long way. Take more and you would end up like a disco ball :O They are highly pigmented and give nice intensity in just one sweep. The shadows last for around 4-5 hours without creasing on my oily lids which is amazing! But they do lose their intensity somewhere around 4 hours. With a good base they last much longer :)

Although the shadows perform well they're not waterproof and so easily come off with regular makeup remover or baby oil which is pretty convenient. Although you must wipe a little more clean to get all the shimmers off!

Overall it is an amazing quad if you are looking for shimmers to wear and goes perfectly with ethic wear. Brides and newlyweds can definitely go for it ;)


Rating: 4.8 out of 5 (-0.2 as I feel they could last longer for the price paid!)
