L'oreal HIP Duo: Charming Review
This duo consists of two colors: a light shimmery taupe and a deeper plum/purple color. Both shades are shimmery and so have some glitter in them. Both are very smooth, but they are a little soft so you definitely need to tap off excess shadow from your brush before you apply it. I love the lighter taupe shade! It's a really pretty light color, perfect for an overall lid color. The purple is nice too (I'm a sucker for purple eye shadows), but I think it could be more pigmented. It took a couple swipes to get the opacity in the swatch below. The only downside to this product is the fallout. I can't stand glittery eye shadows and at first glance I couldn't really see any obvious glitter in it. But after swatching and removing them from my arm, there was a ton of glitter left over. These colors are pretty, but the fallout is pretty disappointing.
