Luscious Cosmetics has been churning out spectacular releases one after that other, and I can't say that I've been dissapointed with any! Their new I Love Eyeshadow Palettes and fun, portable and excellent value for money and come in 4 varied spectrums like Exotic Island, Divine Neutrals, Glam Night and Spring Bloom.
Packaging- Hello pretty spring illustration! I love the packaging of the box, very pretty to look at. I just wished that the design was imprinted on the palette itself, nevertheless, the black, sleek and sturdy makes this palette ideal for storing and traveling.
Color Selection- The palette I received was the Spring Bloom one and even though all the palettes are lust worthy I feel like this one has all the bases covered color selection wise. You have your neutrals, you perfect highlight shades, pretty pastels along with some bright pop of colors and a couple to smoke out your look.
Finish/Texture- The finish with this palette is mostly satin and matte and these eye shadows are among some of the most buttery soft ones that I've felt. They are incredibly soft although that makes some of the lighter colors a bit powdery.
Pigmentation-The pigmentation within this palette varies. The bottom three shades on the right are most definitely my favorites when it comes to pigmentation since you literally need one swipe. The greens and blues are also fairly pigmented along with the highlight shades and I expected the pink/magenta shade to disappoint me in terms of pigmentation, which I'm happy to report didn't. Now I wouldn't classify these shades as the most pigmented that I've come across but some of them are pretty pigmented (the darker shades) and certain shades need a few swipes to be built up.
Lasting Power-I don't wear eye primer when I'm testing out eye shadows since that doesn't give you a good idea when it comes to the lasting power. These eye shadows all last a good 3-4 hours without fading/creasing and after that they lose their intensity a bit, but that's nothing that a primer wouldn't fix. Without a primer, in this heat, I'm impressed with the lasting power.
Here's a look created using the Spring Bloom-Fresh & Feminine Palette.
Overall-This palette is excellent value for money since it gives you moderate to well pigmented, very varied eye shadows that are easy to blend, soft to the touch and have a pretty good staying power.
