My take on the Product

 

Tanjore Rush eye quartet has been around for a couple of years now though Lakme recently rebranded it with the 9-to-5 range. Lakme used to have a lot of great palettes in this range but most have been discontinued now sadly. The rectangular pan contains 4 gorgeous pearly eye shadows along with a dual sided sponge tip applicator. The eye shadows have a really smooth and silken texture and they are packed with pigment! This is my first time using the Lakme quads and I was surprised by how incredibly pigmented and soft these eye shadows are! I would recommend using a fingertip or the sponge tip applicator to pat the pigment on the lid if you want a really intense color. For a softer wash of color, you can use a brush to buff the color. The eye shadows blend quite well, adhere well to the lid (hence no fallout) and wore a good 6 hours (oily lids, no primer) before the first signs of creasing. A primer underneath would help prevent creasing on oilier lids. Overall, the formula is pretty good!

 

Tanjore Rush contains – a molten yellow gold, a dark copper, a golden olive green and a jewel toned purple. Each of these shades work beautifully with Indian skin though I won’t recommend using all of them together (since all are quite rich and shimmery). While I love the colors in the quad, it does lack the “basics” one would want – a light highlight color, a matte dark color for crease definition. But even without those staples, its easy to put together an effortless festive eye makeup with this palette. Everyone needs at least 1 basic festive palette in their stash and if you are confused about what to pick, I would recommend this palette. 

Rating : 4.5/5

    I’d read many reviews where bloggers weren’t happy with the Lakme quads,therefore I didnt know whether to buy or not even though I liked the colors in one of their quads,desert rose.But Ive finally decided to buy it because you’ve given it a thumbs up and till date I’ve not been the least bit disappointed with any product you recommend,infact your recommendations are extra special to me!Thank you so much for the reviews Ankita!you wont believe this but there are times when Im in a store looking at products and I search right there on my mobile whether you’ve reviewed it or not just so I know whether it will be worth it or not 🙂

  30. November 10, 2014 / 12:27 am

    Absolutely adore this palette !! A must have

  31. November 10, 2014 / 10:02 am
