Tips & Toes Exotic Eyes Envious Green Eye shadow palette

Hello Beauties, Today I would be reviewing the Tips & Toes Exotic Eyes Eye Shadow quartet marketed by the Shringar Group.
Tips & Toes is a well known brand of cosmetics in India. They have a wide range of products for Eyes, Nails, Face , Lips & they have a special range called "On the Go" 

Here's a little info about the company

Established in1961, the Shringar group has over the last 48 years been at the cutting edge of  cosmetics industry in India.The Company has been promoted by Shri B D Topiwala who heads theSHINGAR group of concerns. Shri B D Topiwala has, for the past two decades, sucessfully steered the group to great heights and has established a major market share
for various cosmetic products under their brand names such as SHINGAR and TIPS AND TOES.

Alright, now let's talk about this eye shadow quartet

According to the Company: The Exotic Eyes Eye shadow palette blends instantly & 
brightens your eyes, smooth moisturising formula that glides on the eyes.

Shades available : Cherry Plum,Gold Flakes,Fairy Blues,Envious Green

Price: Decently priced at Rs.275 INR for 4gm

How to creat a look:  Here's a picture of the instructions on the box on how to creat a look
using this quartet.

My Experience with the quartet:  I didn't choose the shade & the company randomly sent
the Envious Green shade quartet & I'm glad I got this because I love the green shades in it.

Packaging: The quartet comes in a steel casing & has a mirror & a sponge applicator inside & looks very sleek & travel friendly. The outer casing of the quartet is made of a paper case . I like the packaging a lot.

Color: The color are super gorgeous metallic colors.The Envious Green Quartet has 4 shades- 2 green colors on the top, one is like khakhi green & the other one is a light green, the bottom row has silver & black color shades. The most pigmented of all the shades is the black, this black can be used to create gorgeous smokey eyes. The colors are good for either day or night time look.

Ingredients: The ingredients are listed on the outer steel casing & here’s a picture of that.

Texture: The texture of these powder eye shadows is smooth & glides easily however you 
would need to keep picking up the color 2-3 times from quartet to get the exact pigmented color one looks for, just one swipe wouldn't be enough to get the desired look. These shadows have micro shimmer which isn't too obvious & doesn’t look over the top. The eye shadows don't flake off onto the cheeks or all over the eyes, they just fade away.

Staying Power: The staying power of the colors isn't too good, they start to fade soon but the black color stays little longer when compared to the other colors, it is the most pigmented of all of them. But looking at the price this quartet is available for, I'm kinda ignoring the fact that these don't have great staying power.

Availabilty: Available at most beauty stores & if you want to know about the beauty stores in your city where Tips & Toes cosmetics are available, do check their website at  the website guides you how to locate a store.
Final Verdict: It’s a nice quartet for beginners, it’s very decently priced & you could use the four colors to create different looks. Although the staying power isn’t too great, to make them last little long you could use a nice eye shadow primer. I would recommend this to girls who are on tight budget & can’t afford high end brands but the only constraint is since these are powdery eye shadows, it will be hard to build up but will be good for practice.
