Review, Swatches, & Comparison: L'Oréal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quad in Rose for Romance


L'Oréal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Quad in Rose for Romance

A few days ago, I spotted L'Oréal's new Collection Privée collection at my local CVS. Within the mix was Rose for Romance - a permanent palette from the Color Riche Eyeshadow Collection, and a sneaky lookalike for Urban Decay's Naked3 Palette. I had to put it to the test!

Inside Rose for Romance comes a light shimmery rose, a medium shimmery taupe, a deep cool satin brown, and a shimmery pink-toned frost. Together, they can create anything from a beautiful rose-toned daytime eye, to a sultry taupe smoky eye. All of the shadows are nicely pigmented and apply smoothly albeit a little powdery. Overall, it' not a bad way to spend $7.99 if you want to give rose-tones a try and love shimmery shadows. But how does it stack up against Naked3?

L'Oréal's rose-toned shade is a little deeper, but very similar to Urban Decay's Buzz. The medium shimmery taupe is nearly a dead-ringer for Urban Decay's Factory. The deep, cool satin brown is most similar to Naked3's Darkside, but is missing the purple undertone. And the lightest shimmery L'Oréal shade is most similar to Dust, although it lacks a lot of the pink. In terms of performance, the biggest difference is the texture - L'Oréal's shadows are more powdery, which will lead to more fallout when trying to pack on the color. But as far as functionality goes, both work and look beautiful when worn! If you want to hop on the rose band wagon, but don't want to spend $52 doing so, this is a nice alternative to test the waters.
