I own the shade 05 Rose Vintage which obviously has shades of Pink!!

Shade 1:Is a dark purple shade
Shade2:Is a medium Rose Shade
Shade 3:Is a super frosted white with light pink tinge to it.

Formula:
These are baked eyeshadows and i expected it to be harder than  normal shadow,but truth is it has a more buttery feel to it and is kind of on the too powdery side.It creates a lot of Fallout.They are very pigmented though and show up instantly.
Finish/Texture:
These are ALL shimmery and even though they are all great color,i think it is pretty dumb to make all the shadows in a multiple palette of the same texture because obviously no one will and shouldn’t use all shades of the look of same finish.All shimmery looks are too Over The Top.So the whole all shimmery factor is kind of a turn-off in my books.
Swatch:
   
On My Eyes:
You can see the tutorial for this look:HERE
Staying power: 
Being shimmery and of baked formula,these tend to fade quickly than normal matte shadows,only upto 2-3 hours maximum.But i think these might stay for a lot longer on top of a good sticky shadow base.
Value For Money: 
At Rs.625/- a pop this is one mighty expensive trio and Even i didnt buy this at the original price,i bought it for abour 300 rs on an IMBB blogsale so i dont feel guilty for getting this.
Final Thoughts:
Even though this is a real nice shadow trio,i think that considering the price and taking the fall out factor into account this isn’t something you NEED to have.Its something nice to be seen in the vanity,but not an  “I-need-it-right-now” material.
Rating:  2.5/5 
Buh-Bye For Now!
