L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duo ($7.99)

My Thoughts:

To read about the overall performance of the L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duos, read my review here.

This review is for the following shades: Charisma 518, Poppy 807, Foxy 808, and Mischief 908.

Charisma 518 -a pinky purple and grape purple. The pinky purple looks very pretty in the pan, but barely shows up on my skin. You really have to layer it on for the shade to be visible. The grape purple is very pigmented, but it doesn’t show up as bold as it is in the pan.

Poppy 807 -a matte golden mustard yellow and matte brown. I’m not a fan of these shades. I feel something is missing. I know they are matte shades, but I just feel it needs something to make them pop and more noticeable.

Foxy 808 -a shimmery soft pink and matte dark brown. I love the shimmery pink shade. Even though it doesn’t really show up, it gives off a pretty romantic vibe. It’s a great highlight shade. I wish the brown wasn’t so dark. It would’ve been the perfect duo if the brown was a bit lighter.

Mischief 908 - a shimmery golden champagne and matte dark greyish blue. I love this duo. I use the shimmery golden champagne shade as a highlight and the dark greyish blue for a smokey eye effect. The greyish blue shade is so dark it’s almost black.

L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duo ($7.99)

My Thoughts:

To read about the overall performance of the L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duos, read my review here.

This review is for the following shades: Gunmetal 306, Flashy 318, Devious 336, and Cheeky 508.

Gunmetal 306 -a shimmery olive green and slightly sparkly dark green. The olive green is really pretty, but I was disappointed with the dark green shade. It applied nothing like what it appeared in the pan. I thought it would show up like the dark green jade it appeared to be. Instead, it showed up almost black with a slight green undertone.

Flashy 318 -a cream yellow and greenish blue. I was disappointed with Flashy. The yellow did not show up at all, and the greenish blue was really light. I couldn’t get to show up as dark as it appeared in the pan no matter how much I layered.

Devious 336 -a shimmery khaki green and shimmery rusty bronze. I love the khaki green but not so much the rusty bronze shade. It reminds me too much of rust.

Cheeky 508 – a dark reddish pink and dark purpley brown. I’m not a fan of either shade. The reddish pink makes it seems as if I have an eye infection, and the purpley brown shade reminds me of rust.

L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duo ($7.99)

My Thoughts:

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.

L’Oreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duo in Gilded 806 Review, Photos, and Swatches

L’Oreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duo in Gilded 806 ($7.99)

My Thoughts:

Gilded 806 is one of my favorite shades out of all the L’Oreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duo I own. The two colors (gold and dark brown) will work for all skin tones. The colors are highly pigmented and go on silky, smooth. I like that the gold shade is shiny and not shimmery/glittery. It’s gorgeous! The dark brown shade is so dark it’s almost black. It’s like a toned down black. It does have flecks of gold glitter so I wouldn’t use it during the day. Overall, great shadows with no fallout and has great staying power. It performs just as a well as high end brand eye shadows.

L’Oreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duo in Magnetic 206 Review, Photo, and Swatches

L’Oreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duo in Magnetic 206 ($7.99) This isn’t my favorite out of all the HIP Shadow Duo, because the color in the package isn’t the same color you get when you apply it. In the package, the dark shade of blue looks like a navy blue and the light shade looks like a light blue with a hint of silver. When you apply the shadows, the dark blue shows up like a shade of black with no sign of blue, and the light shade comes out more silver than blue.

Read my review of how well the L’Oreal HIP Shadow Duo performed.
