The new L’Oreal Chrome Intensity quads are pretty! There are 4 colour families but my favourite of the lot is Aquadisiac. That’s not to say I’ve tried them all – I based it on pictures and the testers at the counter 🙂
Anyway, here’s the L’Oreal Chrome Intensity Aquadisiac palette which is a bluesy sort of palette. The eyeshadow feels a little hard to the touch. This is coming from someone who uses fingers to apply eyeshadow so touch is important to me.
Many have noted that the colours are beautiful, and pigmented. Personally, I did not think it so. I mean, yes they are beautiful and pigmented depending on what you use to apply them.
If you use the sponge tip applicator provided you will get nice strong colour. If you use your fingers, you can swipe hard to get the intensity you want. If you use a brush, you wouldn’t get the same sort of intensity, so you might then get disappointed. Even if you use a dense brush, the colour pick up isn’t very good and it can get dusty. So, I’d suggest that you apply these with the sponge applicators or fingers for more colour intensity.
I’m happy with the texture as is to be honest. It wasn’t quite what I was expecting, but I’m happy with it because it makes the palette very wearable. That bright turquoise looks too bright, but in fact, once you blend it in with the navy blue or black, it becomes wearable. You can also sheer it out so its not so intense on your eyes. I wore 2 looks with this palette, which I’ll show you below 🙂
