Hello :) .. Today I am going to write a review on an Eye Shadow Set from the brand GALA OF LONDON.

My Take on the product:

The brand GALA is not new to me as I own few nail polishes and quite liked them. So next time when I saw the eye shadows at the counter, I went ahead and bought a set as it was costing 250 bucks for 4 shades. I bought the set that was meant for bridal & Party wear. The four colors in the set are

  • Light Copper Brown
  • Pink
  • Gold
  • Mauve
 All the shades had shimmer in it. But yes, the shimmer is not chunky, it does help in brightening up the face. Out of the four I found only the pink to be chalky. ( Very Little though ). The applicator that comes with this set is however useless, as it is very hard and difficult to apply the right amount of color on the lid.

 The staying power of the e/s is good. It lasted for 4 hours when I used it once. So I am not at all disappointed with this product.

 
A closer Look at the palette:


 
This is how the applicator looks like : ( Pretty waste actually!!!)

Swatches :  

In Sun Light :


In Natural Light :
 
Let me quickly list out the Pros & Cons

Pros :

  • Staying Power is good with a base. ( I do not own a primer, so I have used little foundation as a base)
  • The pigmentation is good. One swipe picks up the color and blends well.

Cons :
  • The applicator is hard. It does not ensure smooth and even application.

Apart from that no other cons, as it does its Job for the price I got it!!!

Rating – 4/5

Would I repurchase :?  No!! I already started eye-ing on the Coastal Scents Palette. :D

Would I recommend ?  Yes!! A good buy for beginners in make-up.


And I TRIED to create a smoky look with the light copper brown shade. This is the first time I have tried something like this. Pls do give me your feedback.  :D



Take care!!!
Love..,
