I love a good eyeshadow palette that is compact & travel friendly. I am more of a neutral eyeshadow lover but there are times when a good smokey palette comes handy, especially when you have to attend a function or party. I have recently received IsaDora Eye Color Bar palette and gave it a try.
IsaDora is a premium quality Sweden based beauty and makeup brand known for their wide range of cosmetics. They have a complete mineral line of makeup, made of high quality ingredients that are Fragrance free, clinically tested (not animal tested) and are suitable for sensitive skin
The palette comes in a black plastic case which is quite sleek and study. There is a mirror inside which makes the palette good for travelling. An applicator or brush is missing, in any case those brushes are mostly useless.
Shades – I have it in IsaDora Eye Color Bar in Smokey Mauves. There are two mattes and 4 metallic/ shimmery shades. I love the colors there that are good for a soft smokey as well as party ready intense smokey makeup looks. Colors show up nicely on me without a dark base.
Texture & Formula – I was quite surprised with the smooth texture of these eyeshadows. Even the matte shades were quite smooth with no fall out. Shimmery shades are creamy and very easy to blend. I used MAC paint pot Painterly as a base which is a flesh toned color and all the shades showed up pretty well on that. If you want an intense smokey eye makeup, use a black or purple eyeshadow base.
Pigmentation – All the 6 shades are quite pigmented , only first shade is quite frosty and would’t show up without a good base.
Staying Power – The eyeshadows without a base stay on for 5+ hours however a good eyeshadow primer or base increases the longevity.

If you are looking for a compact eyeshadow palette for quick smokey makeup looks then IsaDora Eye Color Bar in Smokey Mauves will be a great option. The formula of these eyeshadows is smooth and blendable. The only downside is the price which is a bit high for a small palette.
