C.A.L Los Angeles Angelic Eyeshadow Palette : Magique Review

Hello Everyone,
Hope you are having a great day. So, today I am reviewing an eyeshadow palette.  The eyeshadow is from brand C.A.L Los Angeles. I found this brand online on Amazon.in with cosmetics ranging from lipsticks, Kajals, mascara, Primer , Eyeshadow palettes and much more. I wanted to try one of their products and they are very affordable. Hence I bought the Angelic Eyeshadow Palette in Magique. So let’s start the review:








Price:
Rs 349/- for 82g

My review: Magique
Packaging:
The packaging of this quad is really good. In the outer packaging there is a golden color box with a partial transparent cover through which one can see the quad. On the back of cover there is list of ingredients mentioned. Once you open the package, there is the Eyeshadow quad again covered in a white carton.  And then after two packages, you get to see the actual eyeshadow quad. The eyeshadow has black body with a partial transparent top which shows the shades of eyeshadow. The eyeshadow packaging is quite sturdy. Once you open the quad there are 4 shades with places in rounds in the eyeshadow kit and there is a partial mirror attached to the kit which is a great bonus with an applicator.  




Texture:
 The texture of the shades in eyeshadow is very creamy and easily blend able. I have used them both with brushes and fingers; they blend beautifully on the eyes. The shades are luminous but creamy hence have lesser fallouts.



Shade:
There are total four shades in the eyeshadow palette Magique.

1)    This is a coral shade with shimmer particles.
2)    This is a toned down copper brown shade, ideal for daily use.
3)    This is a subtle golden color ideal for daily wear.
4)    This is a highlighter shade.



All the shades of a great payoff i.e. with one swipe one can get good amount of color on eyelids. But it is better to use an eye base for the color to be more vibrant.

·         The shade 1 looks brighter in the kit than on eyes. One needs to be generous with the amount of this shade on eye lids for good color.
·         And shade 2 and 3 are very good shades for daily use as they are not very luminous making it usable more often than shade 1.
·         Shade 4 is a light peachy luminous shade. As per package this is a highlighter; this shade is quite pigmented and works well as highlighter. This can be used as an eyeshadow also.

Staying Power:
These eyeshades have a great staying power. Firstly I used them without any eyeshadow base and the shade stayed on my eyes for good 6-7 hours thereafter it started fading. I am very happy with their staying power as my eye lids are oily but still the color stayed almost for a full day. I think if used with eye primer or base it will stay really long, hence recommend for parties.






Pros and Cons of the Magique:
Pros:
1.    Smooth and creamy finish.
2.    Easy to apply.
3.    Affordable
4.    Good staying power
5.    Less Fallout.

Overall Rating: 3/4

Final Verdict:
The shades image online and the shades i got are quite different. But still I liked the shades and good for daily application and are also very affordable. This brand basically has eyeshadow available in quads; hence I may go for other quads also.
Have a great day, Bye J
