My take On Lotus Herbals Purestay Long Lasting Eye Shadow in Serene Wonder:
Packaging: Lotus Herbals Purestay eye shadows come in similar packaging like their blushers and compacts. This eye shadow quad comes in silver pink packaging with a pink satin pouch. Brand name ‘Lotus Herbals’ is embossed on the top cover whereas quad name along with product description and net weight is mentioned at the backside of the eye shadow quad. A big mirror is lodged at the inside of the top cover along with a good quality small eye shadow cum eye shadow applicator. Eye shadow though small but surprisingly has soft natural bristles and very useful for applying shadows. At one end there is brush and other side there is eye shadow applicator of pretty good quality. Overall packaging is girly, chic, classy and very similar to makeup products from high end brands. However, I could not find the list of ingredients mentioned anywhere in the packaging.
- Shades: Lotus herbals Serene Wonder eye shadow quad contains 4 shades. Almost all shades except the pink one are apt for Indian skin tone. The shades are:
- Chocolate brown: This is the most gorgeous shade in the entire quad. Its a pretty chocolate brown shade with very minute shimmers.
- Reddish Copper: This is the most tricky shade from this quad, though very apt for weddings and functions, this shade may not suit every tone. I tried to use it in all possible ways but it didn’t look good on my eyes.
- Coppery Champagne: This is a great shade with minute shimmer. It can be used as a highlighter as well at inner corner of eyes to impart a fresh eye makeup look. This is my second favorite shade from this quad.
- Pink : This shade is odd one out from the quad. It does not go well with other 3 shades and has silver and pink shimmers. It makes me look ill. I never use this shade on my eyes. It’s a pale pink shade with fuchsia tones and moderate pigmentation.
Pigmentation: All shades are quite pigmented and show up on my lid even without a primer underneath. The pink shade is moderately pigmented, the reddish copper shade is most pigmented of all. There is slight fall out too. Texture & Finish: Texture of all shadows is soft but firm. All shades have pearlescent finish with minute shimmers. No matte shades are included inside the quad. I felt all quads of lotus purestay range have shades similar to Lakme 9 to 5 eye shadow quartets. Qualitywise Lakme ones seemed better though. Staying Power: I wore these shadows without a primer underneath and these shades started creasing within 2 hours and almost faded within 4 hours. These shades do not adhere well to my eyes and faded quickly. With a primer, I did not experience much better results.

Overall Rating: 3.75 out of 5 My Overall Recommendation: Lotus Purestay long lasting eye shadow Quad ‘Serene Wonder’ is a preservative free quad containing 4 shades with pearlescent finish and minute shimmers. All shades are pigmented and show up on eyes without a primer but they have little fall out too. Packaging overall is very classy and attractive. However, I won’t suggest this product because of low staying power of 3-4 hours and higher price. So I am quite disappointed that I shelled out 650 bucks on an eye shadow quad with fancy packaging but average quality shadows.
