Every season of Lakme Fashion Week comes with a new product launch by Lakme based on the season’s trends. For the Spring-Summer this year, Lakme’s trend statement is Illusion – a collection featuring metallic nail polishes and eye shadows.
I was very excited to try out the eye shadows as the colors seems really pretty, here’s a look at 4 of the shades from the 8 in the range – Gold Pearl, Peach Pearl, Smoky Pearl and Jade Pearl. These are priced at Rs 750 and available at Lakme counters and online.
[note color=”#FFE4C4″]I think these look really stunning in the pan – the beautiful colors with the reflective pearl finish. I didn’t find the texture as smooth as I had expected though. Some of the shades like Jade Pearl felt a little sheer and I really had to scratch the surface to get more product to swatch these. I thought these might fare better with a brush or in wet state but it was a little difficult to get the color onto the brush without really rubbing the surface. I haven’t worn on the eyes yet but I’m hoping these would do better applied on the eyes.
