L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Mono Eyeshadow (£5.49) come in so many gorgeous shades, and after reading so many positive reviews, I really couldn't wait to get my hands on them!
The texture of these shadows from L'Oreal is just extraordinary. They are not a powder nor a cream, they feel like a combination of the two really, they have fantastic staying power and the colours are highly pigmented. I still need a primer when wearing these, as nothing ever seems to stay on my lids, but when swatching them on my hand, the colours stayed put in the shower and needed a good rub to remove.
Nude is just that, a nude cream with a golden shimmer running through. Smoky is a green, taupe type colour with a khaki, golden shimmer which subtly catches the light. Both of them work really well together and suit my pale skin and blue/grey eyes.
For the price of these Color Riche eyeshadows, I would definitely put them up there with high end products from the likes of Urban Decay and MAC. I will be picking up some more colours soon.
