L’Oreal Project Runway Fall 2012 Eyeshadow Quads in The Temptress’s Gaze and The Mystic’s Gaze

I found these two on Ebay for about $4 a pop.

I liked this quad much better than TMG. And not just because I like neutrals in generals. I got better pigmentation from this one. The green and dark brown shades were a little too sheer, however.

The Mystic’s Gaze was terribly disappointing. I know this is a drugstore brand, but considering how fabulous the old HIP line was….I expected better. The pigmentation was poor, poor, poor. Too sheer, too much effort required to pack on the color, and difficulty in applying and blending.

The Temptress’s Gaze wore for about 4-5 hours on me with a primer. I don’t think it’s a must-have item, but if you see it in the clearance bin and are looking for earthy tones all in one quad, this could work for you. As for The Mystic’s Gaze, she can gaze on outta here and take her eyeshadows with her! I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone. You’re better off hunting down HIP duos on Ebay.

    Aww, I was really hoping for something cool from the Mystic’s Gaze. Apparently her gaze is kinda empty… :-S
