From the 24K Gold Collection that launched earlier this fall comes the i-Lust Eyeshadow Palette called The Gold Standard. The Gold Standard palette aims to bring a luxurious edge to your everyday beauty looks. This palette is described as sexy, strong and confident.
The palette contains 6 shadows; 4 powder and 2 crème. They are named after prominent people in the fashion industry (Laurent, Coco, Margiela, Vera, Louis and Vivienne) in an assortment of gold, bronze and champagne tones. The palette even includes one smoky purple shadow to create a regal look.
Laurent is a plum brown with heavy plum shimmer. Laurent has a rough, powdery texture that applies smooth and effortlessly. It is well pigmented with a beautiful shimmer.
Coco is an orange toned bronze with a satin like finish. No glitter, no shimmer, just gorgeous. It has a dry powdery texture in the palette with a silky, well-pigmented application.
Margiela is a neutral toned champagne gold with a sparkly gold finish. Margiela is one of the two cream shades in the palette. Margiela is easy to apply and when applied, it thins out to a heavy, shimmery wash on the lid. This shade is surprisingly buildable though.
Vera is a yellow toned gold with a satin finish. This one is similar to Coco in texture and finish.
Louis is a pale champagne toned gold with a sparkly, silver, iridescent finish. Louis is the other cream shade and applies just as well as Margiela.
Vivienne is a pale champagne toned gold with a satin finish. This shade will make a beautiful brow highlighter, or go well in the inner corners of the eye. The texture of the powder is soft and applies with ease.
All the shades in this palette wore well without creasing or fading for 10 hours without a primer.
