This is a beautiful warm rose petal pink with pearl. The Private Shadows come in several finishes: Ultrasuedes are the most matte followed by the Suedes, which have more of a satin finish. Sateens are more shimmery followed by the Vinyls, which are also quite shimmery, and the Pailettes are glitter shadows. Loveshade is deeper than Exposure, a pale pink Sateen.

I have been pairing many of these singles with shadows I already have in my collection. Videotape, another Suede Private Shadow, is a plum with gold flecks. It works as a crease color with Loveshade as a wash from lash to brow. Another good crease shade is the burgundy “enhance” shade in Charlotte Tilbury’s Dolce Vita quad. That shadow will shift the eye warmer overall. The closest color to that in the Private Shadows would be the cranberry Agenda Rouge. Another good crease shade is the berry color in the Honeymoon quad, which you can deepen with the plum brown beside it. And one of my favorite crease colors to use with Loveshade is actually from the “I Want Kandee” palette by Too Faced, a rosy taupe matte called Raspberry Cocoa.

The Private Shadow case is sturdy. It’s great for trips because it clicks securely closed. The quads have a magnetic closure that does not provide the same confidence in a suitcase but those do come with a velvet pouch to slide over them when traveling. The singles do not come in a sleeve.

The shadows cost $36 each and they are smaller than the shadows in Tom Ford’s quads. Each single is 0.04 oz. (or 1.2 grams) versus the 0.35 oz. pans used in the quads. Therefore it’s a much better value to buy a quad. However, if you find a unique color you love, these limited edition singles are adorable. The quality is not as consistent as I hoped – some have better pigmentation than others. Loveshade and Agenda Rouge are two that show up well and have a buttery texture. If you want Loveshade to pop more, using a primer such as Too Faced Shadow Insurance makes the color more vibrant.

Some of the Private Shadows are easy to dupe and other colors are more distinctive. The closest thing I own to Loveshade in another brand is MAC Expensive Pink which is more shimmery, more of a duo-chrome, and brighter. Loveshade is more subdued, a warm tea rose that isn't glittery.
