Saturday's Swatches: L'Oreal Colour Riche Les Ombres in Disco Smoking

Taking a fresh breath from all the neutral palettes that I've previously featured, let's look into a slightly bolder palette this week -- L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Les Ombres in Disco Smoking, that is!

This quad was kindly sent to me by Priceline, and my first thoughts when I saw this quad was... "Ok. Black and purples can work.. but how the hell do you work in the mustard yellow shade?". Eek. I guess that's for you to figure, haha..........ha...ha. Ok. That wasn't really funny :(

The Les Ombres quad features 4 eyeshadows and contains a small sponged eyeshadow applicator, which has a round end and an angled end.

Let's go for a shade-y rundown:
  • A true black with slight shimmers. When applied, the shimmers can hardly be seen, so it looks very much like a matte black. It's also a bit patchy when swatched.
  • A shimmery plummy purple
  • A shimmery red-violet. Looked like quite "bruise-y" when swatched.
  • Yellow.. this one's like a cross-breed between mustard yellow and tumeric yellow. It has a very slight orange undertone and it is also of a shimmery finish.

The eyeshadows applies to be fairly pigmented and are best used over an eyeshadow base. There's also little fallout, so beware!

I was kidding when I said it's up to you to figure out how to coordinate the eyeshadows.. haha. There's actually a diagram on the back which gives you an idea of how to use it...

However, being the creative bean I am (jokes!).. I whipped up a look of my own :P Here it is!!!

And here are some MORE glamourous photos....

As you could see, this last photo may just be the most glamourous photo of all 5.

LOL. Just kidding!

But anyways, from the quad, the shade that stood out to me most is the yellow. It makes everything fun and poppy! When I looked at it, I just knew it HAD to be placed in the inner corners!
