[SWATCH] Rock & Republic: Saturate Eye Color - Tempting

I feel like I have failed in the bloggosphere aspect for posting blogs on a more constant basis. I promised swatches from my Rock & Republic Saturate Eye Color eyeshadows that I hauled from Hautelook a few weeks back. So of course, more apologies from me once again and today I shall present you with my very first swatch, Tempting!

First off, let me start off with the package. Slightly excessive but beautiful at the most! Each eyeshadow came separately packaged in back lacquered cylinders. The lids are sealed with black circular stickers each embossed in silver with the eyeshadow shade. The bottom of the container says that each eyeshadow hs 0.11oz/3g of product. Quite the amount I should say! I purchased these for $8.40 USD each on Hautelook and it's safe to say that for half the price of  a MAC eyeshadow and twice the amount of product I definitely cannot complain.



When the eyeshadows are removed from their packaging, below is the Rock & Republic logo embossed in a criss-cross pattern on the bottom part of the package.



The first thing that you see when you open up the packaging is the lid of the eyeshadow container. It has a very large Rock and Republic logo in 3D on the lid in very shiny silver and the background of the logo is also a glazed black plastic. The underside of the eyeshadow container has basically the same information as the bottom part of the outer packaging. The container itself is fairly weighty and makes it feel luxurious and has a quality feel to it as well.




Tempting itself is a very gorgeous purpley, grey, taupey shade that has multifaceted shimmer to it. As you've probably all heard before, the powder of the eyeshadow is very finely jet milled and upon swatching it, it felt like I was touching powdery silk. The eyeshadow glided on very smoothly in one application and it is very pigment as well.

I made swatches of the eyeshadow in comparison to how well it applies, dry, with a primer and wet. It works perfectly fine by itself dry but with a primer and wet, the color is much more pigmented. I definitely recommend this shade if you're interested in trying out the Rock & Republic Cosmetics line but unsure as to what shade to try first. This shade is very safe but very flattering and simple at the same time. It can easily be worn from day to night and with a little bit of eyeshadow it can create a very dramatic look.

I hope you guys enjoyed this half efforted written post that I whipped up in a few minutes and that it was semi-decent. I'll try my best to post up another swatch tomorrow night to compensate for the lack of swatches and posts this week. Have a good night! :)
