Review & Swatchfest: L'Oréal Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Shopping Spree

L'Oréal Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Shopping Spree
As odd as it might sound, L'Oréal's new Colour Riche Eyeshadow quads were not on my radar when they initially came out. The packaging seemed like something out of the 80s and the color combinations looked odd. A few weeks after their release, I still hadn't heard any must-have reviews, but a $4 off $12 coupon compiled on a BOGO 50% off offer from CVS, and some post-workout endorphins was all I needed to commit to a trial run with these guys.

Shopping Spree was among the odd color combinations I mentioned previously, with a matte coral, gold shimmer with a coral shift, medium silver-grey, and matte medium black shadows. Still, the coral shades appealed to the side of me that's ready to shed the winter cools, and pack on the summer brights. In my purse it went! All of the shades are very smooth, evenly pigmented, and had great color payoff which, I'll admit, was far from what I expected from the matte shades. Matte is a hard finish to do, and these managed to stay away from the dry, patchy, chalky consistency that's so often found in drugstore (and even high end) shadows. L'Oréal manages to do it in the quad. What's more is that, when applied and blended, the colors weren't as off-putting as I originally thought they would be. The gold shimmer provides an amazing highlight shade that deviates from the typical cream or white in so many palettes and the matte black is excellent for deepening the crease. Wear time with these shades were average at 7 hours without fading or creasing when worn without a primer. With a primer, they last a full day and then some.

Overall, this is one quad from this collection I would definitely recommend! The quality is stellar for a drugstore shadow and the shades are unique with a nice balance between colors and textures. For $7.99, it can't be beat.
