Review: IsaDora Eye Shadow Quartet

IsaDora eye shadow quartet

Is it fair enough to have too many eye shadow palettes? If you ask me, I would say, it is a girl’s dream albeit and my heart always starts pounding when I see those luscious, eye-catching hues and if you have followed me for a while, then you might have known that I’m always on a hunt for new brands that are quality wise, in par with high end and money wise, budget friendly at the same time and viola! I hit the target this time as I bumped onto an amazing Swedish brand, IsaDora. So, stay tuned to see what’s in-store for?

Truly speaking, I’m so impressed with the amazing quality of the product as they come as fragrance free that are also clinically tested but not on animals and so, that is a good start and then, their products are designed in such a way that is suitable to use for sensitive eyes and sensitive skin and isn’t it amazing? Most of all, I love their premium quality at a very affordable price tag.

Packaging of this quartet looks stunningly sleek with black canvas and embossed with a silver note of brand name to the middle right and when you tend to open, it comes along with a compact mirror to the top and a quad eye shadow palette to the base and so, it is extremely travel friendly as the clip on lock is best served on the go with complete protection of mess free eye shadow.

Formula is simply amazing and I have tried 02 Pink Dream and 01 Dragonfly and the texture is creamy and silky in touch and it promises to give a long-lasting finish that is up to 12 hours provided if you have applied the quintessential eye shadow base. Then, moving along to its intensity, it is well pigmented and pays off really well and the depth of staying power  is also good. Besides, if you are looking to build on further with eye makeup look, then you can blend in as per desired.

Here comes the best part as it talks more kind of beauty, science and technology which I’m always curious about as I really love the innovative technicality each brand uses in so that they could use their product to be unique rest among the others and IsaDora is not in exception either as they use Liquid Powder Technology in their eye shadow which brings in an unbelievable coverage and also, makes the flawless finish every time you use.

  1. Start the procedure with a well washed and clean eyes.
  2. Apply a coat of eye shadow base as it acts as a base for the whole eye makeup look.
  3. I always fan around the biscuit like beige shade to the crease area so that catches the light swiftly.
  4. I always play around with the hues by starting the lightest colour to the inner eyelid area and then, apply the desired base colour to the middle area and finishing off sensibly with a darker shade to the outer corner of the area.
  5. Then, you can build up as per required.

  1. Create a base: Since there is no visibility of eye shadow primer here, I’m just sticking on to the lighter shade of grey as an eye shadow base because it will give some depth to the whole makeup look. And, using my finger, I’ve applied the light grey shade (top middle of the palette) onto the eyelids and crease area.
  2. Crease area: Using the blending brush, I’ve applied the dark grey shade (bottom middle of the palette) along the crease area and I did blend and buff movement to create a perfect blend to the crease area.
  3. Depth to lower crease area: Using the blending brush, I’ve applied the shimmery dark blue (top right of the palette) onto the lower crease area to give some intense depth and shimmer and yet again, I did the same blend and buff movement to make the shade to cover up evenly.
  4. Eyelids: Using  the eye shadow brush, I’ve dabbed the shimmery grey shade (bottom left of the palette) all along the eyelids.
  5. Outer corner of the eye: Using the blending brush, I’ve applied a dab of black shade (bottom right of the palette) onto the outer corner of the eye and I’ve blended it so well to give a defined sharp look.
  6. Inner corner of the eye: Using a small brush, I’ve applied a bit of sparkly silver shade (top left of the palette) onto the inner corner of the eye.
  7. Lower lash line: Using a small brush, I’ve applied a hint of grey shade below the lower lash line area.
  8. Eyeliner: I’ve applied a quintessential winged eyeliner using the above eyeliner selection.
  9. Mascara: First of all, using eye lash curler, I’ve curled my lashes really well before heading onto the next step. Using the above mascara, I’ve applied plenty of coats of mascara onto the upper and lower lashes vigourously.
  10. Final touch: Using a cotton bud, I’ve tidied up all the bits and bobs in and around the eye. Now, the completed smokey eye makeup look is ready to show off.
