A very happy Dusshera to all of you. I was soo busy these days of Durga puja. Enjoyed a lot, with great food and people, hopping from pandals to pandals all through the nights. Hope you all enjoying this grand festive season too.
Today’s review, which is for the Blast from the Past series, is an eyeshadow quad from L’Oreal Paris color riche range named Cuppa Joe.

Price:- Around $7.29 , Around 700 at amazon.com
My experience with L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Eyeshadow Cuppa Joe :-
Packaging: Cute and compact pallet with a golden rimmed transparent lid. It has a dual-ended sponge applicator of decent quality. No mirrors included.
They are basic nude shades that look great together.
- The first one is a rosy brown, great for applying on lid or on crease.
- The second one is a milky white. Great as a browbone highlighter, inner corner highlighter or can be dabbed on the centre of the eyelid for the pop.
- The third one is a light brown. Great for crease area.
- The fourth one is the darker version of the third one, but with more red undertones. Great for outer V or over my liner to seal it.
They together give the eye a neutral, smoky look.
Pigmentation: Not very well-pigmented. Two of four shades just refuse to show up on my skin. The first and third shade looks same on skin. Photographing them is a hell tough job too. I have to really swipe and swipe hard and harder to make it somewhat visible.
Staying power: No creasing or fading for hours and hours! Just a tiny bit of concealer or primer beneath, and the shadows can last really long.
Summing up my “LIKES” and “DISLIKES”:-
What I like about L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Eyeshadow Cuppa Joe:
- Pretty shades for everyday look.
- Buttery soft texture.
- Goes smoothly.
- Blends easily.
- No fallouts.
- No creasing.
- No fading.
- Compact packaging.
- A decent applicator.
- Pretty reasonable.
What I don’t like about L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Eyeshadow Cuppa Joe :
- Poor pigmentation.
- Availability in India.
Final Thoughts:- The quad consists of soft and subtle hues that don’t scream for attention, but would definitely make your daily eye makeup more beautiful. They have a great texture without any fallouts and a great staying power too. The little pigmentation which it has, I guess is enough for the morning eye makeup. A great pallet for the beginners to get a polished look without much effort. It is a decent everyday pallet for you.
