L’oreal Color Riche Les Ombres Eyeshadow in Velours Noir Review + Swatch

Loreal Color Riche Les Ombres EyeshadowAnother review of a product from L’oreal but for an eyeshadow this time! I also got this L’oreal Color Riche Les Ombres Eyeshadow in Velours Noir during luxola.sg’s last boxing day sale and I am so glad I did! The only regret I have right now is that I didn’t purchase the other shades! 🙁

affordable eyeshadow quad

I got the quad in Velours Noir thinking that I only have a few eyeshadow palettes that’ll give me a dramatic smokey eye. I completely ignored their quad with neutral and natural looking shades thinking that I already have a ton of those but right not I completely regret not adding it on my cart. This is probably the best eyeshadow quad I currently have.

Well, it comes with a sponge-tip applicator which is usually useless most of the time so I just tossed it out. Haha!

Can you see the swatch? Holy smokes! Believe it or not that’s just a single swipe of the L’oreal Color Riche Les Ombres Eyeshadow!! I am so shocked with how pigmented it is! It glides smoothly on the lids too because it’s texture is almost buttery. I love it! I expected for the glittery shades to be less pigmented and for the dark shade to be a bit chalky but boy was I wrong!

Will you stare at the swatches please? Aren’t they perfect? Now, do you understand why there’s so much regret in me because I didn’t get the quad with brown and natural looking shades? I must not forget to mention too that they blend like a dream! 😉

Because of this quad, I am so looking forward to trying out other eyeshadow palettes from L’oreal. L’oreal’s prices are pretty high compared to other drugstore brands but I can totally understand why, they never compromise the quality. I only have good things to say about their products so far. 🙂

    I haven't tried eyeshadows from L'Oreal before, but I can completely see what you mean about the pigmentation! It's incredible, I love the smoke grey shade 🙂

    I throw out those small applicators as well. Not sure why they even put them in anymore 🙂 Thanks for the review!
