Lakme 9 to 5 Eye Quartet Tanjore Rush : Review, Swatches, Price and Buy Online

Lakme Eyeshadow Palette
Lakme Eye Makeup
Best Indian Festive Eye Shadow



Festive makeup in India means Red and Gold. Red lipstick, gold eye shadow speaks festivity. I love the Coloressence Gold Eye shadow for some gold indulgence on the eyes. While some YSL Red lips. Any eye shadow with neutral shades takes a back seat and the bright ones take charge. Lakme has these small four color quartets in a few shades which serve great for festive looks. I have the shade Tanjore Rush.

Product Description

These versatile quartets of vivid, high-intensity powders give your eyes a defined finish. The radiant colour and shimmer particles shape and highlight your eyes to give you that professional edge. Use the lighter shades for office wear and darker shades for your night look.

See it through my Eyes

Lakme has refurbished this range of eye shadows and brought in under the 9 to 5 range, while some shades are no longer available, the festive special Tanjore Rush still remains a favorite for makeup lovers including me. 

The quartet is a perfect square shape with four colors assimilated in two rows and two columns. It has a mini dual end sponge applicator. The lid is transparent and click lock style. It lacks a mirror which makes it light weight and sort of travel friendly. (Powder pan products can never be travel friendly though). The shadows are embedded in pans and tightly secured.

The shadows have a soft, creamy and beautifully pigmented. The shades are shimmer infused and shine beautifully when applied on the lids. I use my finger tip to pat the color on the lids for a metallic sheen and supreme pigmentation. Further I blend it with the blending brush for a softer phased out look.

The shades are creamy and velvety; there is no fall out what so ever. All the shades have great color pay off and I don’t need any primer underneath to make the colors pop. The staying power is pretty impressive; it lasts on my lids as it is for about 6 to 8 hours easily without fading.

The four shades from top left are metallic purple, khaki green, rusted copper, yellow gold. All the colors are richly shimmery yet subdued enough to not make the eyes look like a disco ball. The shades are all well suited and apt for Indian skin tone. This palette is a perfect dose of festive colors to adorn the eyes. My favorite shade is the green and purple out of the lot.
