Spotted: NEW L'Oreal Colour Riche Dual Effects Eyeshadow Quads

I haven't even gotten around to trying the other Colour Riche shadows that L'Oreal released last year in this type of packaging, and here we have new quads! I spotted this new display at Bed Bath and Beyond the other day--keep reading for a closer look.

NEW  L'Oreal Colour Riche Dual Effects Eyeshadow Quads
(retail: $8.79 each at Bed Bath & Beyond)

This collection is broken down into True Nudes and Color Smokes:

The quads in the Color Smokes category are: Emerald Conquest, Incredible Grey, Unforgettable Lilac, Eternal Blue.

The quads in the True Nudes category are: Treasured Bronzes, Absolute Taupe, Perpetual Nude, Rose Nude.

Here's a closer look at a few of the quads in this collection:

 Notice how some shades contain glitter while others do not.

Have you spotted these new L'Oreal quads in your area yet? Thoughts? I purchased the Rose Nude quad and will be sure to post a "first impressions" post about it soon. So please check back if you're interested!


  1. beyond excited to get all the new Loreal products...the eye shadows totally love.....thanks for all the great posts on new products....

  2. So this might be why my drugstore put a bunch of Colour Riche quads (Bold and Smoky collections) on clearance?

  3. Man, when are they going to release some new LE Infallibles?! Hasn't it been a year since the last LE ones? Miss Candy was the last, no? I NEED MORE!!! lol

  4. I actually like the texture of these, would prefer a different design of packaging each pan round or square.., I think it is too hokey, am I the only one

  5. Yes, anxious to see your first impression. Since these are called "Dual effect" I am wondering if you can use them wet or dry? Otherwise, what is the dual effect? I feel like they are just repackaging and repromoting a regular eyeshadow quad. That's why I hope there is something different and special about these...

  6. These look like the Loreal quads I've seen on European/UK blogs with how the shadows are shaped. Here's hoping they are better than the current quads!

  7. I like the color combos. But mostly, they seem to be 'safe' colors.

  8. I NEED emerald conquest!!!! WOW!

  9. Got the Rose Nude and the Ivy Green Pencil today
    BTW if you shop @ Harmon spend $20 on Loreal and get $5 off with the in store coupon.

  10. Unforgettable Lilac, Emeral Conquest, Absolute Taupe and maybe Eternal Blue are re-shapped, renamed items for L'oreal Color Riche for other countries. You in the US have/had different items than the rest of the world, and it confuses me greatly that brands do this. Why companies do not attempt and merge their catalogues?
    Anyway, I have two of the equivalents:
    Unforgettable Lilac = Lilac Cherie
    Emeral Conquest = Baie d'Emeraudes

    Lilac Cherie is very good. All shades are very well pigmented and beautiful. My favs are the darkest one which is pigmented as hell and the sparkly second shade, for a glam touch. I do recommend it.
    Baie d'Emeraudes is medium good. My fav is the 3rd shade which is a blue with some green in it but lacks pigmentation. The gold shade is super flaky and sparkly, it definitely needs a sticky base or else you risk glimmer dancing all over your face. The 2nd is a sky blue with tiny micro gold shimmer and looks a lot like one shade from a sigma palette with french-France related names. Overall this palette is also worth a try.

  11. I picked up the one you reviewed separately, Rose Nude and it's fabulous. I wouldn't have believed it's a Loreal shadow if the name was not on it. Definitely an improvement in the formula. Creamy, pigmented, and blend very well. Fantastic staying power (over primer). I just wish they were pressed in pans so I could depot them, it's my only complaint.
