Few days back I’d shown you a preview of a gorgeous eye shadow trio from Chambor. See the full review and a video tutorial on how to use this palette in this post.

My take on the Product
The Chambor eye shadow trios come in a pretty navy and silver packaging. The outer surface contains a beautiful swirling pattern of silver on the glossy navy background and the inside of the lid contains a mirror. It also comes with a applicator which can come in handy for emergencies/touch ups. Each of the eye shadow pans has the rose insignia on the powder surface which looks lovely.
The texture of the eye shadows is quite soft and smooth, almost buttery smooth. The trio contains 2 blue shades which have a pearl finish while the third shade contains lots of sparkle. The sparkly shade doesn’t feel as smooth as the other 2 and there can be a bit of fall out – I’d recommend it using with a damp brush to get the best results. Because of the very soft textures, the 2 blue shades can also have a little fall out. The best thing to do with these is to do the eye makeup before doing concealer/foundation. This way your base would not get spoiled because of the fall out. The lighter blue is very buttery and blends very easily. The darker blue is smooth too but not as smooth as the lighter one and needs a little work to blend. All the shades are super pigmented and the staying power is amazing! These wear for over 9 hours before the first signs of creasing begin to appear. I was quite surprised with the wear time, eye shadows don’t generally wear this well on my lids without a primer.
I love the selection of shades in this trio! Most blue based trios/quads tend to have paler blues or whitish shades but the silvery grey color in this trio is such a stunner! When applied with a wet brush, its gives such a gorgeous metallic look to the eyes – its the perfect party eye shadow. The second shade that I love in this palette is the turquoise blue color. Its got a bit of a greenish flash and has a very pretty pearl finish, I feel it has a very slight blue-green duo-chrome effect. The third shade is the midnight blue shade which again has a pearl finish. This reminds me of MAC Deep Truth and L’Oreal Infallible All Night Blue. I think Inglot has a similar shade too. In this trio, this is the least impressive shade because its slightly flat and doesn’t have the jewel toned look that L’Oreal All night Blue has. Not that its a bad color, but I’ve used nicer looking blues in the past.
Overall, I’d definitely recommend this trio to everyone who likes to experiment a little with their makeup – you get a deep midnight blue, a tropical turquoise and a sparkly grey here. You can use each of these shades alone or wear them together like I did in this look below. If these are not your shades, do check out the other shades Chambor has (#88 and #92 have nice neutral colors) because the formula is pretty great and they aren’t too heavy on the pocket.

The NOT-SO-GOOD about Chambor eye shadow Trio Nocturnal Blue :

Chambor eye shadow Trio Nocturnal Blue contains a beautiful combination of colors – deep midnight blue, a tropical turquoise and a sparkly grey. The packaging is lovely and the formula is great! The sparkly shade performs better when used wet otherwise it feels slightly gritty. The pigmentation and wear time is absolutely wonderful and apart from the issue of minor fall out – I think these are amazing! If Nocturnal Blue is not your cup of tea, try the other shades in this range.
