Rock & Republic Eyeshadow in Electric Swatches + Review

The name Rock & Republiq  has been raved about YT gurus as well as bloggers - their blushers as well as eyeshadows were said to be of really great quality and were definitely covet worthy. Although a bit late, I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of their eyeshadows in Electric.

YAY I got to experience the signature R&R packaging!! :3

So pretty! :3

Why hello there dust particles & finger marks. Funny the camera takes this in
detail whereas it fails to take the multi-dimensional layer of the eyeshadow. :/

of the E/S
Luminous-glowing blue with a bit of shimmer.
This is prettier IRL. The camera isn't picking up the layers. :/

Swatch on my arm.

1 swipe. 

This is what happens when you try taking swatch pictures at night time LOL! xD 
Swatch = FAIL

On my eye.

Sorry for the untamed eyebrows. :/

My take:
- Color payoff is good but I expected so much from this product since it is highly raved about in Youtube.
- It is pricey. An investment as some would say but a must have if you are into makeup!
- Staying power is great!
- Creamy, blendable and easy to work with.
- Minimum fall-out.
- The color is quite pigmented and is buildable.
- Staying power is great.
- Not locally available and hard to get even online.
