Review: Victoria's Secret Eye Shadow Quad - Ravishing

My dear friends know about my passion for makeup products. That is why it is easy to pick a gift for me :) 
This Summer my friend from London came to our family event and brought me a very nice gift - Victoria's Secret eye shadow quad (Ravishing palette). We do not have VS in Lithuania, so it was even more interesting to get it. My opinion about this palette you can read below :)


Mano mielos draugės žino, kad niekada nesuklys jei man padovanos kosmetikos produktą :) Taigi, iš Londono į mūsų šeimos šventę atvykusi draugė man atgabeno Victoria's Secret šešėlių paletę (Ravishing). Labai smagu gauti VS ženklo prekę, kadangi jo Lietuvoje kol kas dar nėra.
Šešėlių vertinimas - žemiau :)



Description: Create your signature eye. Four coordinating silky shadows can be worn alone, in combination or blended for infinite eye looks. 6,4 g.


What I liked? The combination of shades is very good, I think it's perfect for evening makeup. All shades are shimmer, well pigmented and look very good even without eye primer. Texture is really silky, light. 

Eyeshadows blend easily. That is why I'm planning to create smokey eyes look using them!

All shades are labeled (base, lid, crease, highlight) and moreover, there is a scheme on the bottom of the package as a suggestion where to put the shade. It's very useful for beginners!

What I didn't like? Shelf life is only 6 months. Most others from 12 to 36 months. 

The package could contain a mirror, then I would call it travelling friendly. It has no brushes too, but I use my own brushes.

Would I buy them for myself? Maybe. I like the shades, the texture, but I' not sure I can finish them per 6 months. Though, it's not a big problem overall :)



Gamintojo aprašymas: Sukurkite išskirtinį akių makiažą. Keturių, derančių atspalvių paletė gali būti naudojama tiek po vieną spalvą, tiek kartu, tiek ir maišoma tarpusavyje, norint išgauti ypatingą rezultatą. 6,4 g.

Kas man patiko? Atspalviai tikrai puikiai suderinti tarpusavyje. Idealiai tinka vakariniam makiažui, kadangi yra blizgūs ir intensyvūs. Šešėliai gerai pigmentuoti, ryškiai ant voko atrodo net ir be makiažo bazės. Ilgai laikosi. Tekstūra švelni, tarsi šilkinė, neapsunkina vokų.

Šešėliai labai puikiai maišosi tarpusavyje, todėl turėtų labai tikti dūminiam akių makiažui, kurį būtinai išmėginsiu!

Ant kiekvieno atspalvio pažymėta voko vieta, ant kurios rekomenduojama dėti konkretų šešėlį :) Palengvinimas :) Kaip ir ant pakuotės dugno esanti schema, kurioje nupiešta kur ant voko rekomenduojama naudoti vieną ar kitą atspalvį. Labai patogu toms, kurios nežino kaip tai geriau padaryti.

Kas nepatiko? Galiojimo laikas atidarius šešėlių pakuotę - vos 6 mėnesiai! Labai keista, kadangi daugelis gamintojų nurodo 12-36 mėnesius... 

Pakuotėje pasigedau veidrodėlio. Būtų labai patogu nešiotis šią paletę rankinėje jei tik būtų veidrodėlis. Taip pat joje nėra ir šepetėlių, nors, man asmeniškai tai ne problema, kadangi ir taip naudoju atskirus šepetėlius. 

Ar pirkčiau šią paletę? Galbūt. Mane labai žavi sodrūs, ilgai išliekantys atspalviai, bet neesu tikra ar spėsiu ją sunaudoti per 6 mėnesius.

  8. Kaip keista, kad šešėliai galioja tik 6 mėnesius. Man taip greitai sunaudoti šešėlius būtų neįmanoma. O spalvytės gražios. :)

    1. Apžiūrėjau pakuotę prieš visokią šviesą ir tikrai "6".. gal suklydo ant mano pakuotės? :) Nors kita vertus, jei toks galiojimo laikas po to gali pablukti ar pan. Reiks naudot kasdien, nes labai patinka, o išmest bus gaila :D

    1. I would like to try more their beauty products, this palette is very good.
      I think that 6 months is time while colors look best, do not bleach etc. But still - not enough..

  15. VS is about 10 minutes from my house but I don't really buy their makeup. I didn't realize that it was only good for 6 months. That is pretty short. I guess they expect you to be back soon. Their stuff isn't too cheap either and they're really not as good as they used to be. :(
