These days, I have been researching loads about eyeshadows, be it liquid, powder, gel or anything. Frankly, I am impressed with a few of them. Initially, I wasn’t a pro at applying eyeshadows and I used to find it unnecessary to apply eyeshadows, but now, after I understood the importance, I am in love. Today, I will be reviewing the Oriflame Very Me Soft N Glam Eye Shadow Lady Lilac. Read on to know how the product fared for me.

My experience with Oriflame Very Me Soft N Glam Eye Shadow Lady Lilac
It comes in a circular packaging with a transparent flip-top cap. The transparency of the cap makes the shades easily visible from outside.
Colour and texture
The name of this dual eyeshadow is “lady lilac” and it has a powdery texture
It doesn’t have any kind of fragrance
I purchased this when I initially started out experimenting with eyeshadows. I got it from an oriflamme consultant, which is why I got it for some offer. I am glad I purchased only one shade form this range. You will know why very soon. Firstly, no applicator brush has been provided. I used an eyeshadow brush and tried to swipe some color but to my utter dismay, I had to literally dig into the product to actually get some color. I can understand that it is difficult to obtain lighter shades onto the brush, but the darker shade too disappointed me. After great difficulty, I finally used my fingers to take the product and apply it. It didn’t even show on my eyelids and after it showed (this is after constant digging of the product and using eyeshadow primer), the product fell off in 10 minutes. Yes, 10 minutes. There is no question of feathering or creasing or making eyelids oily. In all, please don’t purchase this product. It looks so beautiful and attractive but is not worth trying.

Would I repurchase or recommend this?
No, I will not repurchase this or recommend it.
Glossypolish verdict: the Oriflame soft n glam eyeshadow is definitely not recommended. The color pay off is bad and the product fall out is too much. It requires too much of effort to even make the color visible on the eyelids. Glossypolish gives this eyeshadow a 1.5/5 owing to its travel-friendly packaging and for those pretty shades which don’t come out on eyelids.
