Loreal HIP Eye Shadow Duo in Enchantress Review!

                                  Loreal HIP Studio Secrets Eye Shadow Duo in Enchantress

Today I'm reviewing one of my favorite eye shadow duos! This is the Loreal HIP Duo in Enchantress. This duo contains one matte shadow and one frost. The colors in this duo are both very versatile. You can also easily create a smokey eye with the two for a night out.

The first shadow is a matte black. It is pretty pigmented but it's just a tad on the chalky side which makes it a little difficult to blend. This would be a good black to have if you're doing a smokey eye and like to build up color to an intensity you're comfortable with. I like to use this to line my top and bottom lashes when I don't want to use an eyeliner.

The second shadow is a brown with purple/red tones. When looking at this shadow in person you can see the slight purple sheen to it. When swatched it's not as apparent. This shadow is definitely more pigmented than the first, but that's most likely because the finish of the two are different. I think this shadow is wearable for day and night. It also makes a very nice crease color. 

The packaging of the duo is round and pretty compact. You can easily throw this into your makeup bag/purse to carry with you for touch ups. Also there is a bottom compartment to this duo where I believe it held a small applicator. So if you want to pack one of those with you for application you can just stick it in there. 

As I said this is one of my favorite duos because the colors are versatile. I can use one for eyeliner and wear the other as a shadow. Scroll down below for more pictures of this duo.
