Saffron 4 Colours Eye Shadow Review

Personal review of Saffron London's 4 Colour Eye Shadow palette.


This Saffron 4 Colours Eye Shadow (shown as Palette C on the website) comes in a compact little palette with the 4 colours in 4 strips. This particular palette has a muted cream gold colour, a light peach colour, a burgandy colour and a dark taupe.

The muted gold makes a great shimmery highlight colour for the browbone. The light peach comes off exactly as it looks, really pretty and shimmery. The burgandy colour can come off more purple depending on your skin tone. The last colour initially looks black, or greyish black but when you really get into it, it comes off as a more dark taupe colour.
All 4 colours contain fine shimmer with the 2 light colours being the most shimmery and all go towards a metallic finish.  

This little compact palette is very light and I like the packaging as it's not too thick. This definitely won't take up too much room or weight in your handbag or makeup bag.

The shadows themselves are very pigmented and I'm very happy with the colour payoff. I found that they apply easily whether using a brush or your finger or the sponge tip applicator that comes with the palette. I also found them to be easily blendable. I definitely recommend  wearing these shadows over an eye shadow primer for staying power.

The only downside is the shimmer which may be too much for some. If you actually like shimmer in your eyeshadows, as I do, then you'll like this, especially as it's fine shimmer and not noticeable chunks of glitter.

Overall, this is a decent palette if you're looking for something small, compact, affordable, that gives good colour payoff and with which you can achieve a variety of looks from simple daytime looks to smokey eyes. I achieved the look below using 3 colours from this palette.
