My experience with this product:The packaging is a rectangular opaque good quality casing with a push to open button on a flip open cap. Shade number and name is provided on the bottom. The case color is similar to the shadow it has inside. There is a rectangular mirror and mini shadow brush given and also branding i again done on the eyeshadow. Overall the packaging is quite unique and catches eye for sure.
04 Flexi Brown-Flexi Brown is a medium brown eyeshadow color with gold undertone to this which makes this sort of a sunkissed tan brown color. This is a gorgeous shade with amazing silk like texture. The color comes quite pigmented not just on the swatch but also on the eyes as well, this looks just beautiful! The shadow is fine quality and does not feel powdery or chalky and it delivers beautiful silk like finish. Another plus point is it does not have any fall out (minor may be) that we generally see in shadows with such type of finish.
To test its lasting stay, i applied this on my lids without a base/primer and it went smoothly for 4 hours and after that it started fading a little. So 04 Flexi Brown has long lasting stay.
14 Bleu nuit irise-This eyeshadow is a beautiful silky mid night blue color that comes out very pigmented and slightly blackish blue while swatching it on hand. But on the eye, the pigmentation does not come that great but still it is not bad either, i would say the pigmentation is somewhere between average to good. Though i noticed a little fallout but it blends beautifully and comes more like a matte mid night blue with a hint of sheen on eyes. Without a base/primer it stays well for 2- 2.5 hr and after that it starts fading.
The brush that comes with these eyeshadows is good quality and dense. It can be used to apply, layer and blend the eye shadow on the go. I think this is the first time i am liking a brush that comes with the eye shadow because generally mostly they are useless but this is good.
Pros:1) Packaging is unique and eye catching.
2) Good quality brush is included.
3) Fine quality product.
4) Easy to blend.
5) 04 flexi brown delivers silk like finish and 14 bleu delivers matte finish with hint of sheen.
6) 04 Flexi brown does not fall out and has very good pigmentation.
7) Stays well even without a primer (04 shade).
Cons:1) 14 Bleu nuit irise does fall out.
2) Looking at the price of a single shadow, bleu nuit irise does not stay as long, its lasting stay is just average.
Overall rate:04 Flexi Brown: 4.9/5
14 Bleu nuit irise: 4/5
Verdict: Both the shades are beautiful indeed but am loving the flexi brown more!!
See you next time..
