L’Oreal HiP Duo in Darkwave

  By Laura. Posted October 8, 2010 at 8:27 am.

I picked up L’Oreal HiP Studio Secrets Eye Shadow in Darkwave randomly at Ulta last week.  I’m a sucker for grayed purples as well as shimmery olives, so of course it spoke to me.  I have a few of these HiP eyeshadows and for the most part the quality is stellar for drugstore.

I’m digging the name Darkwave.

It swatched rather well too.  I did one swipe with the sponge applicator over TFSI and took the photo in direct overhead sunlight.

Surprisingly vibrant for drugstore!

Great duo for fall smokey eyes, and kind of reminds me of my Chanel Enigma quad!

Vital Stats

Price: Varies from store to store, it was marked $6.99 at Ulta but I got it with a coupon

Shade: Grayed, smokey purple and a tarnished golden olive

Finish: Purple side has a satin finish, olive side is shimmer

Limited Edition?: Honestly I’m not sure, this was in a seasonal stand and not in a permanent slot so I’m assuming so, but drugstore companies often make seasonal items part of the permanent line later so you can never be certain!
