New Lakme Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow Palettes Royal Persia, French Rose Review, Swatches
In my previous post on the Lakme Absolute x Sabyasachi’s ‘Illuminate & Shine’ Collection, I reviewed the new bronzer, highlighter and shimmer brick. (See HERE)
These two eye shadow palettes are also a part of the Limited Edition Sabyasachi Collection.
Lakme already has the day Gold and night Silver palette in this Illuminating Palette range, see the swatches of the Day Palette HERE.
Claims: They say it’s the eyes that gives you that extra sparkle. So as you prep for your festive looks this year try the new Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Eyeshadow palettes to add to the glam quotient. These limited edition eyeshadows by Sabysachi Mukherjee have 6 versatile colours to play with and create stunning looks that are bound to turn heads.
Whether it’s the lovely plum tones of the Royal Persia palette or the warm earthy shades of the French Rosé palette, these unique shades are absolute must-haves.
Limited edition eye shadow palettes designed by fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee
High intensity powders
6 versatile shades that blend beautifully
Suited for most Indian skin tones
Royal Persia has more purple/pink tone shades and French Rose has more warm browns/coppers. From the first look of it, I absolutely love French Rose! The shades are stunning and so apt for the fall/winter/wedding season currently. I can think of 9-10 different eye looks immediately looking at the palette.
French Rose is definitely very versatile and very flattering on Indian skin tones.
Both palettes have the usual packaging with a mirror and a double ended sponge tip applicator.
Honestly except for 1-2 shades, I was not so impressed with the pigmentation of the shadows in the previous day palette. This time I am blown away and how!
I had huge expectations from the palettes as the shades looked really pretty. And I am so glad Lakme has worked on the pigmentation this time, all the shadows are super creamy and buttery and these swatches are just one swipe each!
A coppery bronze, close to MAC’s Amber Lights (Amber Lights is slightly more gold)
A matte plum brown, this was the only shade with little less pigmentation compared to the other 5, but is easily buildable
A satin finish pinky red
A matte dark chocolate brown
A satin finish peachy pink, close to MAC’s Expensive Pink (Expensive Pink is a little more pinker)
A matte burnt orange with some gold shimmer
Each and every shade is super pigmented! This palette is a must have for all brides to be, it’s a perfect addition to your trousseau. I will be creating a look with this palette super soon.
Coming to Royal Persia,
A satin finish aqua blue
A matte purple, again the only shade in the palette which is not that pigmented
A matte slate blue
A satin finish plum
A satin finish light pink
A satin creamy beige with gold shimmer, very creamy.
This palette has more cool toned and grey based shades, and more on blue and pink lines.
All the shades in both the palettes are very creamy and buildable, except for one shade in both, all are pigmented and blend well into each other.
If you like warm shades, you can go for French Rose and if you like cooler shades, you can pick Royal Persia.
For me personally, I absolutely love French Rose and if I have to recommend one, I would say French Rose 🙂
