Shades:

      There are A lot of Shades Available Almost 12 is shown on the site.I have never seen all the shades at any store i have been to India.Electric Pop,Wild Orchids,Va Va Va Bloom and skinlights are usually seen in India,yet the shade i own- Pink Petals is not shown on the site.
  All The Shades in a quad are complimentary to each other and is the best mix of colors and shades i have seen in an eyeshadow palette. 
Pink Petals:

Shade 1 :Is a frosted shimmery pink
Shade 2: Is a golden rose shade with shimmer
Shade 3:Is matte milky pink with No shimmer at all
Shade 4:Is a purplish Brown with a slight Sheen

Formula:It is obviously a cream shadow.It is not too creamy that if we touch it makes a dent in the pan,but more of a just-out-of-fridge butter kinda texture.

Staying Power:As it is a cream shadow,it doesn’t last that long,especially in humid climate and it creases like crazy! It is good if you are going to an Air-conditioned Place.Otherwise,it might be a pain.But If you do Use this product on top of primer/foundation+powder(in my case) it does last longer.Maybe if you own a good primer you can make this work well for you.

Finish/Texture:It has creamy/Satiny finish and glides on smoothly.The shimmer is fine and is gritty at all.But I find this kinda greasy(but i am not a cream shadow person).

On The Eye:

I just applied foundation,powder and then the second shade from the quad all over the lid,then i applied Colossol Volum’ mascara and Lakme Black Satin Kajal on waterline to complete the look.

Ease Of Application:The Plus point is the application which is a piece of cake and this makes this quad good for the beginner.The best way to apply it is using your fingers.

Value For Money:485 Rs is just too steep for a “drugstore” brand.Even though Revlon costs this much,only very few products can be even considered to be remotely comparable to high-end makeup.So the price is too much considering its performance level.

Final Thoughts:I am NOT a cream shadow person and I don’t think shadow is really that great for our climate.Plus,the price tag makes it an unnecessary indulgence.

Rating: 2.5/5 (+2.5 point for shades,formula and ease of application,-2.5 for not long lasting,creasing and price)

Will I Repurchase This?!:No Way Jose!

Would I Recommend This?!:Not Really,This is a bad mistake that happened to me.
