Review & Swatchfest: L'Oréal Limited Edition Project Runway Palettes in The Mystic's Gaze & The Muse's Gaze

L'Oréal Limited Edition Project Runway Palette in The Mystic's Gaze

When I first saw L'Oréal's Project Runway collection hit the drugstore shelves, I was blown away by the bright, bold shades present in everything from the nail polishes to the eyeshadows. While I didn't initially indulge in anything from the collection, I recently found some products on clearance at Target a few days ago and couldn't say no!

The first palette, The Mystic's Gaze, is overwhelmingly cool with a medium iridescent purple, medium iridescent emerald green, bright matte blue-purple, and a deep blackened blue. Unfortunately, this palette was somewhat of a letdown when it came to both swatching and wearing. Both of the top shades were more sheer than expected and the matte shadow was chunky and inconsistently pigmented.  The deep, blackened blue shade was the softest and smoothest of the quad, but it's easily dupable and not worth spending full price for. Luckily, the next palette, The Muse's Gaze, was a redeeming product in this collection!

The Muse's Gaze contains a sheer, pearlescent teal, a shimmery yellow gold, a shimmery peach, and a shimmery emerald green with chunky green sparkles. All of these shadows are smooth and glide on, but not all are evenly pigmented. The teal is the most sheer in the palette and can be worn both as a highlight or overshadow and is a near dupe for Inglot's AMC 24 shadow. While I don't associate this color palette with winter, I it will prove great for spring and summer looks. 

Overall, there are some definite inconsistencies within this collection. But The Muse's Gaze palette is a real gem and, wether you are buying it full prices or at a discount, it is worth the purchase!
