L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duo ($7.99)
To read about the overall performance of the L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duos, read my review here.
This review is for the following shades: Sculpted 106, Adventurous 114, Sassy 208, Roaring 234, and Forgiving 236.
Sculpted 106 – a shimmery dark rosy pink and a dark plum purple with lots of shimmer. I was quite surprised at how pigmented and how well the pink shade showed up on my skin. Usually pink shades don’t show up because they are too light. The dark plum purple is gorgeous in the pan. But when you apply it, it’s almost as dark as black.
Adventurous 114 – a shimmerylight tan nude and slightly shimmery bright pink. The tan shade is a great nude shade. The pink is a little scary (for me). It reminds me of blush. I imagine it’ll look like I have an eye infection if I used it.
Sassy 208 – a shimmery taupe and shimmery teal. The taupe shade is one of my favorite shades. I heard it’s a dupe for the popular MAC Satin Taupe. The teal is really pretty. However, when you apply it, it doesn’t look the same as it does in the pan. Instead, it shows up more grayish than teal.
Roaring 234 – a matte brown and matte bold navy blue. The matte brown isn’t my favorite shade of brown, but it is good for shading/contouring. The navy blue shade is what caught my eye, but I was disappointed when it didn’t show up as vibrant as it appeared in the pan.
Forgiving 236 – a shimmery dark brown/bronze and shimmery turquoise. The dark brown is really pretty; too bad the teal wasn’t as pretty. The teal showed up more bluish than it did teal.
