Deborah Milano hi-tech eyeshadow trio in 10 Green Rhapsody: Swatches, review and EOTD

This looks a lot like the Bourjois Smokey eye Trios but is in fact much different. I suppose these are baked too and it says you can use these wet as well. The Deborah Hi Tech eyeshadow trios come in many shades and you can create a whole eye look with each. The one I'm reviewing here Green Rhapsody is an olive green gold combo trio. These Deborah Milano hi tech eyeshadow trios retail at Rs. 495 and are available at Deborah Counters or most retail sites. I picked this up from Medplusbeauty at a discount.

The Deborah Milano Hi Tech trios are very soft despite being baked and have very good pigmentation. These are also slightly sparkly. They go on pretty smooth and blend easily but have some amount of fallout since they are so soft so you gotta be careful during application. The shade Green Rhapsody has a light yellow gold shade which can serve as a highlighter or even as an all over lid shade for a daytime look. The next shade is a medium pista green shade which again has slight shimmer and good payoff. The third and darkest shade is an olive green which is not too intense. You can create a nice daytime smokey green eye look with these as shown below or even combine with a bit of black shadow to create further depth for added intensity. You could even use these wet but I've not tried it so far coz I'm not sure how to do it..whether to just wet a brush and dig into these or scrape a bit of shadow out and then use it. Coz sometimes using a wet brush directly on the pan spoils the shadow.

Yay for:

  • Can use dry or wet
  • Good pigmentation
  • Smooth application
  • Easy to blend
  • Can create a nice subtle green smokey look with this palette
  • Can be used with the applicator provided or with a makeup brush

Boo for:
  • Has fallout
  • Needs primer underneath to prevent creasing
  • Lasts 3 hours without primer
  • Has slight shimmer so it may not be workplace appropriate
  • The plastic casing is slightly hard to open

Overall, these are worth the price and the shades are easy to work with. However, I'm not quite impressed with the colours in this particular palette. Might look at some other colours.
