L'Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Monos* - Frugal Friday

Welcome to another edition of Frugal Friday!  Today I'll be showing you L'Oreal's new-ish eyeshadow singles, the Colour Riche Eyeshadow Monos.

From L'Oreal:
Available in 15 shades, Colour Riche Eyeshadow Monos provide an ultra-rich and ultra-smooth glide with a unique gel-to-powder blend that allows for easy, controlled application and ultimate color payoff.

I received all 15 shades and swatched them all for you.  I used a good mix of the mattes, shimmers, bold and neutral shades on my eyes and my thoughts on them are mixed.

With a brush, most of the shadows apply really patchy and are hard to blend.  As seen in the swatches above, they apply MUCH better with your finger.  The shimmery shades are gorgeous and the mattes are very nicely pigmented but only when they are applied to the lid with your finger.  Because of their inability to blend easily with a brush, the matte shades aren't very useful in the crease or to use as a transition shade.  

Overall, I think the L'Oreal Colour Riche Eyeshadow Monos are good shadows but only if applied with your finger.  They retail for around $5.99 and can be purchased at Ulta or anywhere that L'Oreal products are sold.

*I received this product for review.  All statements are 100% honest and my own
