|No.7 Limited Edition Colour Rebellion Eye Quad|
They look incredibly vivid at first sight and although many might think they are pretty jewel tones, their brightness could put some people off. However, when I applied them for swatches, they were less pigmented than they appear. In this instance I would say it is a bonus because if you are feeling timid, it is easy to be more restrained in application and get a pretty wash of colour. Then, when you want to vamp it up a bit you can make the colours more intense. The first swatches are of the colours applied dry but the second is of the colours applied wet. You should be able to see the difference in intensity.
All 4 colours are stunning and I think would look great used wet as eyeliners if you aren't keen to use them all over the eye. My favourites are the purple and the bronze as I have green eyes and I know that these shades really make my eye colour come to life.
Both the hues of the azure blue and the bronze applied wet reminded me of couple of the Estee Lauder Liquid Eyeshadows from the Summer Bronze Goddess Collection, so if you missed out on those, this could be a cheaper option, albeit without the phenomenal EL staying power.
Compared to some of the more muted smokey colours released this season by brands such as Dior and Chanel, this palette stands out as something original (and less than a third of the price!) and is well worth a place in anyone's makeup bag.
If you want more inspiration on how to use the colours together, Lisa Eldridge wore the bronze on the lid and the lilac just under the eye, paired with a nude lip, in a giveaway video on her website www.lisaeldridge.com/. It is well worth a look as she looks stunning and is a testament to the versatility of the palette.
