Since the L’Oreal Shocking Les Ombres Color Riche Eyeshadow Quad in Disco Smoking came out I’ve always wanted it but couldn’t figure out what to do with it.  Then I saw Naomi Campbell on The Face USA wearing amazing purple and yellow eyes and this was my perfect excuse to try it.  I attempted the purple and yellow eyes here.

I have discovered that on the back of the palette, it tells you how to use it. I should have turned it over ages ago because I really need the help!  For this look I followed the colour placement as instructed using the following tools:

  • Ruby & Millie Eyeshadow Brush for colour 4 (yellow)
  • Ruby & Millie Eyeshadow Brush for colours 3 (pink-purple) and 2 (violet-purple) – one side of the brush for each colour
  • MAC brush 219 for colour 1 (black)
  • No7 eyeshadow brush to blend all of the colours.

I found that the best way to do this was not to apply the colours in number order but to do it in this order:

  1. Colour 3 (pink-purple) all over the lid.
  2. Colour 2 (violet-purple) from the inner corner and crease to the brow and up to just before the highest part of the arch.
  3. Colour 4 (yellow) from the highest part of the arch to the outer corner and to the socket.
  4. Colour 1 (black) along the top lash line.

I really like these colours- they’re so pretty and the shimmer is just enough to make the eyes stand out, but it’s not a dramatic glitter looking shimmer. The colours go on well – darker than a wash but not too bold so if you want a dramatic look, simply layer the colours.

I’ll state the obvious – they are bruise colours but in a strange way this works! I think the key is to blend, blend, blend! I’m quite impressed with this, and the instructions, so I’ll probably buy some more colours.  Also, I’ve already got a few more ideas in my head as to what to do with this palette so I’m am very pleased I finally bought it.
