My Experience with Lakme 9 To 5 Eye Colour Quartet Desert Rose
Its packaging is Rose gold on the back and transparent on top. It comes with a tiny little sponge brush. I must say the whole packaging is quite compact and travel-friendly. But then it’s quite difficult to work with the tiny brush provided. You definitely need spare brushes.
No fragrance at all.
It’s definitely not one of those silky weightless powder. On layering, it feels heavy on eyes. Spreading this one is not a task but it gets a bit clumsy when you try building up the shade.
Shade and pigmentation
I really like the shades of this palette. It has 4 shades being, Golden Beige, Pink Beige, Copper, and Rich metallic brown with tiny shimmer particles to it. My favorite one has to be golden and dark brown. They are better pigmented than other shades. In one swipe you get maximum pigmentation. For the rest two shades, you need to apply multiple swatches. Also on the application, the brown and copper shade looks pretty much the same. It doesn’t make a huge difference. But then brown is a much better option. I can see this palette working well for fair to wheatish skin tone. On darker skin tones the shade might not pop up.
Well, the stay part is tad bit disappointing! In normal weather conditions, it tends to fade off within 4-5 hours. Except for the dark brown shade which stays for the longer duration. But again not more than 8 hours. And in the humid condition, it fades off much quicker.

Will I recommend?
Nope. You have better and cheap options in the market which performs way better than this one. So skip this palette it’s not worth the money. Don’t get this one below 40% discount.
