In this post, I'm sharing with you all swatches of the full range of the Deborah Milano Hi-Tech trios. I received samples of the entire range from the Brand, so you will see sample sized products in this post.
All eyeshadows have been swatched in the following ways:
- dry swatches without flash (top-left)

- wet swatches without flash (bottom-left)

I have already reviewed trio number 06 here. Quality wise, these eyeshadows are awesome. The average staying power without a primer on my oily lids is 4-5 hours. They retail for Rs. 495 for a single unit consisting of 3 eyeshadows and a very good quality sponge-tipped applicator.
This trio has a sheer glittery black eyeshadow, a soft shimmery baby pink and a silver-grey eyeshadow in this palette. Of all the trios, this one has the worst pigmentation. But if you're looking for a soft smokey eye, you can try working with it, though I'd not recommend buying this one!
The second trio has copper-brown based shades. A dark copper-brown, a golden-white and a soft coppery gold (the most beautiful god I've seen), this trio is excellent for the Indian skin tones, and will go well with almost all ethnic wear. Hardly any fall-out and decent pigmentation earn this trio a thumbs-up!
This is a blue-based trio, with a silver-white shade, a light sky blue shade (almost white again) and a gorgeous dark blue. The darkest shade is lovely, but the other two shades are a bit too white for the Indian complexion. The texture is smooth, and there's hardly any fall-out.
This one's for the pink and purple lovers. There's a pink shade, a lavender shade and a purple one in there, making this trio a must-have for a lot of girls. You can wear it almost everyday, to a date or even a dinner. The pigmentation is alright, there's no fallout, and the shades go well together.
This is one of my personal favorites from this collection. A great, almost-neutral trio with a berry-brown crease shade, it seems apt for office too. A berry brown, a taupe-brown and a pinkish highlight shade work very well together for almost all complexions.
Another blue-based trio, this one I feel is more wearable than trio- 03 for a lot of us. The lighter highlighting shade is one of my favorites for brow-bone highlighting. Read detailed review here.
07 is a green based trio, with a dark green, a golden-khaki green and a peachy highlighter. I have worn these shades a lot of times, and love wearing it again and again. The dark-greens add a lot of depth to the eyes, though the highlighter hardly translates onto the skin, except for some glitter.
There's something very appealing about this trio, maybe because all the shades are from different color families here, unlike the other trios. The blue shade has a lavender based dual-tone, the copper-red looks excellent and the golden shade is apt too. Love working with this trio.
In conclusion, I quite like the way the shades in these trios have been thought out. Do remember that all shades in all trios have a pearly finish, except for a few glittery golds here and there.
Once again, all the swatches in a single pic for you to feast your eyes on:
I would do EOTDs with each of them very soon. If you want to see an EOTD with any of the trios first, let me know in the comments below.
