I went for a mini Streetwear haul the other day and shall be reviewing one of the glosses which was a part of the haul. Actually, I got fabulous discounts and hence I could not refrain myself from picking up a few stuff, though personally I am not a major fan of Streetwear, but with discounts all girls go crazy and so did I.
Product Being Reviewed:
Streetwear Sheer Temptation Outrageous Orange Lip Gloss,http://www.makeupbop.com/.
Streetwear Sheer Temptation Lip Gloss makes your lips gloss and glamour with a slick of sheer colour. It is perfect for a subtle daytime look or more dramatic evening lips. Colour glides easily over the lips, creating a shiny gloss effect without any stickiness.
INR 190 for 15 ml.My Take on Streetwear Sheer Temptation Outrageous Orange Lip Gloss:
Packaging: It comes in a plastic tube with a slant applicator. The tube is translucent hence the product’s colour can easily be seen. Slant applicator helps to have better control and gives a better finish with application as compared to the round tip. It has a plastic screw cap. The shade name is stuck at the back on a small paper, it is nowhere embossed on the tube, the concept is just like the Lakme gloss.
Colour/Pigmentation: It is a nice peachy pink shade. Coral lovers should definitely get one of these. The best part is the colour payoff, glosses generally are not very pigmented, but with this gloss, I can actually see the coral pink shade being transferred to my lips. It has subtle shimmers in it which give a nice glossy shine to the lips.
Consistency: It glides on smoothly on my lips. The consistency is not very thick, it is also not sticky as compared to the other variant which I have got by the same brand.
Staying Power: Stays maximum for 1.5 hours after which it fades completely, does not leave behind any stain. The best part is my lips feel soft and moisturised with its application.
Smell: It smells of vanilla. The fragrance is very tempting and you feel like eating away the gloss. Though the colour pay off is completely gone in 1.5-2 hours, the fragrance remains for a good 3-4 hours, strange but true.
Summarising the pros and cons:Pros of Streetwear Sheer Temptation Outrageous Orange Lip Gloss:Beautiful shade which would look good on all kinds of skin tones.Smells deliciously of vanilla.Non sticky.Packaging is good and travel friendly.The slant applicator helps in proper application owing to the lip contours.Easily available, even online stores have this gloss.Cons of Streetwear Sheer Temptation Outrageous Orange Lip Gloss:Does not stay for long. With munching,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-2-eyeshadow-palette-319, the staying power reduces even further.Limited shade selection.Complete list of ingredients not mentioned.

Do you get the buzz around argan oil? If your answer is nope, then this post is going to unravel the truth about argan oil. This oil is being hailed as “liquid gold” and the one answer to all beauty problems. Argan oil is extracted from the nuts of the argan tree fruit, which grows extensively in Morocco. Argan oil is being used in a wide range of cosmetic products because of the multiple benefits it provides to hair, skin,http://makeupbop.com/, and body. Its being touted also as a wonder oil because it is rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. Because of the high amount of essential fatty acids, it is highly resistant to oxidation. Argan oil takes care of a variety of skin and hair related problems from curing psoriasis and eczema to taming down frizzy hair. Because of its restorative benefits, it is replacing jojoba oil, olive oil, etc., in beauty treatments. Its also one of the most expensive oils in the world and costs a lot when its bought in its pure form.
Argan oil protects and nourishes skin, body, and hair. Since it has such a high level of antioxidant content, it reverses damage to skin and hair. Not only does it protect hair and skin from damage, it reverses damaged hair and skin. Argan oil also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, so promotes scar tissue healing.
Like other beauty oils, it aids in moisture retention and is extremely moisturizing on skin and hair. Also, because of the antioxidants, it prevents free radical damage to skin and is therefore a good anti-ageing formula.
This oil moisturizes, softens, and hydrates skin. It is an amazing beauty elixir, not greasy and gets absorbed quickly into the skin.
This oil can be used for the entire body, hair, skin,http://www.makeupbop.com/, as well as can be consumed internally (don’t drink it up :P). It provides a healthy sheen to skin and hair.
For hair, when massaged into the scalp regularly, it aids in quick hair growth. Argan oil moisturizes hair, takes care of split ends, protects hair from sun, adds volume to hair,http://makeupbop.com/benefit-m-1, so you can use it as a serum.
Argan oil makes skin youthful, maintains elasticity of skin, firms up skin, adds a radiant glow.
Ways To Use Argan Oil in Beauty Routine:
You can include argan oil your beauty routine in the following ways:Mix in a few drops of argan oil with your regular body lotion and smooth over entire body to get its anti-oxidant and nourishing benefits.Add in a few drops of argan oil to your homemade face packs for an added vitamin E dose.Mix in a few drops of argan oil to your exfoliating scrubs.Use it as a leave-in conditioner so that it protects your hair from sun damage, adds moisture to your hair, repairs split ends, and as well as aid in hair growth.Use it on scars to heal them.Use it on minor burns to soothe them.If you have cracked heels, apply it on your feet, keep it overnight and wake up to smooth legs.
Some of the best argan oil cosmetic formulations are: Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter, Kiehl’s Superbly Restorative Argan Dry Oil, , Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil, etc.

Good day lovelies! Let me share with you one Dove shampoo and conditioner experience.
My husband never uses a conditioner after shampooing. So he always picks a shampoo that can make his hair soft and often, he picks a hair product that is a shampoo and conditioner in one. As we all know, some shampoos can make hair stiff when not followed up with a conditioner. So on one of our grocery shopping day, he picked Dove Hair Therapy 2 in 1 Daily Care Shampoo and Conditioner. I got curious about it, I tried it and wrote a review for you.
On Dove Hair Therapy Daily Care 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner label:
Daily Care 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner is a part of Dove’s Nutritive Solutions range, especially formulated to nourish dry hair. It contains Micro Moisture Serum which is absorbed by your hair, keeping it beautifully soft and glossy. For hair so smooth you can’t stop touching it. Convenient 2 in 1 technology to both cleanse and condition normal hair in one simple step.
The Dove Hair Therapy Daily Care 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner I got comes in a 200ml white plastic bottle. The shampoo itself is white in color and it has the right consistency for a shampoo. It lathers well and it rinses off easily. While I shampoo with this,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-2-eyeshadow-palette-319, I feel that my hair is soft to touch but not as soft when I use Tresemme or Pantene Shampoo. After using this shampoo alone, my hair is manageable, soft and smooth that I can skip conditioner at times I am rushing. But using a conditioner (I use Loreal Re-Nutrition) makes my hair better, as in softer and smoother. But I think for a man, whose hair is most of the time short, this shampoo will do.
Dove Daily Care 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner has fresh, floral citrusy scent which I love a lot most especially during the summer. But I noticed that the scent only last on my hair for 4 hours. I am keen to shampoos which scents last until next day.
I have normal hair right now but sadly, I’ve experienced increased hair fall with the last shampoo brand I tried. This variant promises to protect normal hair from daily wear and tear. I used this for almost a month and it did not help with my hair fall but good thing this does not aggravate my hair problem. After 4 weeks of use, it made my hair manageable, shiny and healthy looking. I do have a super thick, wavy hair and I love how this hair product was able to minimize my hair volume.
-It has refreshing scent.
-I did not experience increased hair fall.
-With shampoo alone, no conditioner, I can run my fingers smoothly though my hair.
-My hair feels soft even without conditioner too.
-It tames my waves and tones down hair volume a bit.
-It is nourishing, leaving my hair healthier after almost a month of use.
-It is affordable.
-The scent only last for 4 hours.
-Using a conditioner gives best result.
-It didn’t helped stopped my hair fall problems due to previous shampoos I used,http://makeupbop.com/urban-decay-m-6. I am glad it didn’t aggravate existing condition.
Although using a different conditioner after using this Dove 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner can make my hair better, I still find this Dove Hair Therapy Daily Care 2 in 1 Shampoo and Conditioner a good hair product on days when someone is rushing and has to skip conditioning as this product alone can still make my hair soft,http://makeupbop.com/benefit-m-1, smooth and manageable.
Always wear beauty!

So one of my uncle’s recently flew down from New Jersey and got me a pretty little surprise as usual. It is one of my all time favorite EDTs, probably also one of my first perfumes that I had got when I was growing up. It is called the Very Irresistible Givenchy Electric Rose and here is my review about it.
This product is a part of the original Givenchy fragrance which came out in 2003. This range has other fragrances available but for me by far this is the best of the lot. The Electric Rose came out in 2012, which was inspired by the rock and roll movement. If you happen to have the time then I suggest go through the beautiful advertisement online which featured Liv Tyler in it. It has seduction, passion and of course the gorgeous Liv Tyler in it. The ad also had her first signing debut as well.
The packaging is very pretty, very fresh and very rock and roll. It had the usual rose tattoo which is silver embossed on the box and the box itself is white in color. I have the 75 ml EDT bottle. The bottle itself is tall and a little curved and white in color. The product has lemon, basil, lemon verbena and blueberry as top notes. For middle notes it has anise, rose and violet. Finally for base notes it has mush and cedar wood.
If you take a “whiff” of the product you get the smell of beautiful roses, blueberries and fresh lemons very refreshing and citrusy indeed. The combination of the roses and the lemon is fabulous; it is very feminine and sweet. Something can you wear to a luncheon or even to work. All the notes are very soft and gentle nothing to sharp or distinct, I hate sharp notes. After a while the musk takes over and the fragrance reaches a whole new dimension. And right at the end it goes very green because of the anise.
It is very floral, very crisp and very light. It is very calm and soothing. I love the fact it has mixed all my favorite flavors in it like rose, lemon and blueberries. The blueberries are very soft and light while the rose, lemon and basil are more prominent. It gives you a very summery and warm feeling. I do not sense the whole rock and roll in the perfume at all. Like I said it is very young, feminine and girly and there is nothing electric about the product at all. I still keep wishing they would make an EDP of the same product.
The only concern of mine with this perfume is the staying power. It really did not last very long a little more than 4 hours but then again it is an EDT. I love Givenchy and I bought all their perfumes and given the fact that they are quite expensive they really should work on its silage. Another important factor is that it is not at all potent you at least have to spray it a few times and that leads to waste of product. The rose and lemon is very prominent at first and that can also be an issue with people who do not like roses and then the smell disappears,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-2-eyeshadow-palette-319, which is sad. It is very similar to the first Very Irresistible but minus the staying power.
The packaging is gorgeous.
Floral and feminine smell.
Very pleasant and natural smelling.
All the notes are fresh,http://www.makeupbop.com/.
Perfect for a summer day out.
Silage is very bad.
Not at all potent.
The smell is very refreshing and beautiful but I doubt I will buy the product again simply because this is my second bottle and I want to try out other products by Givenchy.

Hello Pretty Faces,
Greetings loved ones, hope you all are doing wonderful. This is my second hair treatment mask from Boots ingredients. I was so impressed by the results of the previous one (Boots Ingredients Avocado and Macadamia Intensive Hair Treatment) that I decided to get another one. I could not get the previous one, but got one of “henna” variant.
Boots Ingredients Intensive Hair Treatments come in similar looking jars, only with different colors. This one has a maroon screw-lid and the body is of the slightest pink, with pictures of henna flowers illustrated on it. The mask itself comes in a wonderful pink color. In addition, the smell is just breath taking. It has a slight hint of henna fragrance, but a much sweeter and subtle version. The only bad thing is that it comes in a jar, with no dispenser and I have to dip down my fingers every time, which isn’t so hygienic, but what else can you do about it (although I have a separate spoon for it :D!)
With natural extracts of henna, boots ingredients intensive hair treatment is specially formulated to help enhance colored hair. For vibrancy, gloss and shine. Also helps damaged and dry hair leaving it nourished and more manageable.
800 INR ($45 in amazon.com) for a quantity of 400 ml/13.5 Fl.oz.
Directions For Use:
How To Apply:
Apply through hair after shampooing. For best results, leave for 5 minutes and rinse thoroughly.
Ingredients:My Experience with Boots Heena Intensive Hair Treatment:
This is “the” hair mask I have used this far. I want to use it the next time also, but the only problem is that the stores don’t always have it in their stock. I myself have got this one like 3 months after I have finished using the last one.
Although “directions” say to rinse it off after 5 minutes, but I keep it on for 15 minutes, to have it work itself on my hair over time. I can feel how drastically my hair has softened right when I am washing it off. By the time it starts drying up, I cannot resist myself from touching my hair again and again. The price is high,http://makeupbop.com/, and the availability is an issue though, but the quantity is huge (literally), and it would last comfortably for 5 months (twice-a-week-usage for mid-waist length hair).
My hair type is medium to dry. I use it twice every week. So far, I have used it just four times and I am in love with it: DPros of Boots Heena Intensive Hair Treatment:Smells wonderful.Great color (I heart pink :P)Great at taming frizzy hair.Visibly less hair breakage.Gives hair a wonderful healthy shine.Has the goodness of henna.Makes hair really smooth.Good quantity.Cons of Boots Heena Intensive Hair Treatment:Price is high.Not available everywhere,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-3rd-eyeshadow-palette-315.Inconvenient to carry during travels.No dispenser.
Do I Recommend Boots Heena Intensive Hair Treatment?
Yes, I totally recommend it to everyone. If you spot one, then don’t think twice before buying (but it comes at a great price too) and yes, I will buy it again, most definitely.

Hello beauties. I am going to review “Natural tan” lipgloss from the Colorbar’s new range True Gloss lip gloss. I am a lipgloss lover and the moment a new gloss comes in market I get this irresistible urge to buy it. So that’s how I came across this gloss.
Rs. 495 for 3.8 ml
Colorbar True Gloss collection is here to expunge your woes of having to touch up your lip gloss every now and then. It is highly pigmented and gives your lips a divine shine. Its ultra-moisturizing formula will keep your lips soft and smooth for hours together,http://www.makeupbop.com/.
True Gloss is a glossy, non-sticky, pigmented, opaque coverage, moisturizing,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-3rd-eyeshadow-palette-315, long lasting lip color. It doesn’t get patchy or uneven and feels very comfortable, light and hydrating on the lips and stays for a LONG time without getting sticky/drying or uneven.My take on Colorbar True Gloss lipgloss Natural Tan :
Yaaaay just yaaaaaaayy. I finally found my MLBB shade. Moreover this gloss has a special memory attached to it. The day I decided to give it a try my boyfriend just could not take his eyes away. Well to be honest, he’s the kind who wouldn’t notice anything but for some reason this caught his attention. It feels so natural that it can defeat any colored gloss for that matter.
I just simply love the fact that its so opaque and so color rich. It hides all pigmentation of the lips and all you can see it a natural nude glossy color on your lips. It will rock any look but I like it best when I’m trying to have a simple look or when I’m wearing too much other colors in clothes or makeup.
It is a soft cream gloss and very soft on the lips. It feels so smooth and light on my lips and is not at all sticky. Its not drying but I usually prefer using a lip balm underneath my glosses as I have dry lips. The staying power of this lip gloss is simply great, around 4 to 5 hours and even after that it fades giving a light sheen to the lips. The color appears exactly the same on the lips. Yes, its that pigmented.
• I’m addict for nude colors, I love the color.
• Highly pigmented and opaque.
• Awesome color pay off. Covers lip pigmentation.
• Smooth and creamy in consistency.
• Good staying power.
• No fragrance and smell.
• Comes with doe foot applicator which is convenient for use.
Cons of Colorbar True Gloss :
• None as for me.
• Some might consider it a bit pricey .
Would I re-purchase Colorbar True Gloss lip gloss,http://makeupbop.com/urban-decay-m-6?
I would be mad not to. I looooovvvveee it. I would recommend it too everybody who is a sucker for nude tones. This gloss would beautifully suit any skin tone. And the range is very different and vibrant. I would recommend everybody to give Colorbar true gloss lip gloss a try. Its definitely worth it .

Hello IMBB beauties,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-2-eyeshadow-palette-319,
Hope you all are having fun in monsoons. Somehow I am not very fond of this rainy season it makes me feel dull and gloomy and when to top it all I live in city where summer stays for hardly 2 months and monsoon stays for 4 long months. This makes me miss summer , yes I can see you all raising eyebrows but that’s true. So one day I when to the body shop to buy pore minimiser I sniffed this EDT and it screamed summer to me and I got this baby home with me.
INR 795 for 30ml
What product claims:
Can’t get enough of Satsuma? Get a fix of your favorite zingy scent in an eau de toilette format.
• Eau de toilette• Light and wearable• Zingy, energising scent• Contains satsuma extract
My experience with The Body Shop Satsuma Eau De Toilette:
I am not fan of fruity smells but citrusy fruity smell is an exception. Citrus ones are best for summers and they givea nice fresh feel. Citruss makes me feel very happy, and young. Satsuma is a citrus fruit which looks and tastes like oranges but it is seedless. This Satsuma EDT is like freshly peeled oranges. When sprayed it smells strongly like fresh oranges and slowly settles down to a subtle orange smell. This is an energetic, fresh smell which gives a wonderful kick start to the day.
Coming to the staying power,http://www.makeupbop.com/, it stays strong for first 2-3 hours when people who come close to you can also smell it. After that it faints a bit but you can feel it on you till 5 hours after application. After that you need to literally sniff your skin to feel this smell. I was expecting more from this EDT, as even body mist stays for 4-5 hours so an EDT should last longer than that.
It comes in glass bottle, with silver spray head and cap. Nothing extraordinary or cute about packaging but is practical. It does not cause any irritation on skin and no staining on cloths.
• Fresh, energetic citrus smell. Makes me feel happy.
• Decent staying power.
• No irritation caused on skin, no staining on clothes.
• Not very strong small, people with sensitive nose can also use it.
• Not tested on animals, recyclable packaging.
Cons of The Body Shop Satsuma Eau De Toilette:
• Expensive for this staying power.
Final verdict on The Body Shop Satsuma Eau De Toilette:
Love summers and citrus fragrances,http://makeupbop.com/urban-decay-m-6, then get this without second thoughts,else checkout something else :/
4.5/5 (marks deducted for only the staying power)
Will I be repurchasing The Body Shop Satsuma Eau De Toilette?
Yes it is a must-have for summers.

Revlon is a brand that has always commanded respect from me on account of the sheer quality of its products. They are pricey -but honestly-none of the stuff I bought from this brand has ever made me feel that pang of guilt which accompanies every dud purchase. Being a sucker for eyeshadows I thus lunged to get my hand upon the Revlon Customeyes shadow and liner tad at once I knew it was being released in Indian stores. The amusing variety of colors of this collection attracted me and among the 6 options of combinations in this collection I found my favorite- the golden brown-Smokey eye combo.
The Revlon Website says:
For a natural look in the evening just intensify your daytime look. Lips and cheeks can go darker and more shimmer can be added to the eyes.
The dual ended applicator helps you to easily create the eye looks you want. Use the wider side to cover the eyes area in shadow and the pointed end to apply the liner shade.
The packaging of this new Revlon shadow has got sleeker than and I found the long brush provided along with to be more useful than the short ones of the Revlon Color stay quads. The sharp tapering sponge applicators are nice for defining crease and corners. The price is somewhat more than Color stay powder shadow quads.
The colors are silky and lustrous-I would not call them shimmery-since the shimmer is very fine and only the sheen and color is seen on applying. This is good for wearing in semiformal occasions or even in casual hangouts as the look would not go OTT but will give the eyes a bright makeover,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-2-eyeshadow-palette-319. The idea of packing copper and bronze shiny shades along with highlighter a dark metallic crease shade makes this set perfect for a natural cum Smokey eyes.
In my first attempt at EOTD with this palette, I found that although the colors put up a good pigmentation in the swatches on the back of hands, the show was not that great when it came to wearing the shades on bare eyelids. On unprimed eyelids-it took about 5-6 swatches to build up the color. However with priming the shadows showed up nicely. So these Customeyes shades are completely “primer intensive” because without primers the novelty of colors won’t show up at all.
Swatches without Primer after 5/6 swipes Swatch with Primer after 2-3 swipes
My Take on the Revlon Customeyes shadow and liner
This set is aptly called “Naturally” glamorous-as the colors in the combo are all subtle shimmers that won’t look garish at all even if worn during daytime. However-to add zing to the colors and make them last longer a good primer is a must. And what is the “liner” in this shadow,http://makeupbop.com/urban-decay-m-6? If it is supposed to be the darkest metallic shade-then I think it is an overstatement-I think it would work at best as a good crease defining color-for lower lids I would rather smudge some kohl.
1. Nice combination and good variety of usable colors in a single set.
2. Ideal for natural /metallic/ Smokey eye look. I particularly like the way the shadows are neither glittery nor shimmery but silky. I was on the lookout for such metallic shades that I can wear during everyday purposes.
3. With primer the shadows show up beautifully and stays long
4. The sponge applicator is really useful in subtly defining the crease and corner sharply
5. For five shadows the price is all right.
1. I found it to be fading and disappearing without a primer,http://makeupbop.com/. A primer has to be used to build the color and make it stay for long
2. Ingredients are not mentioned
Here are the three eye shadows I have with quite similar color combinations-I think I have grown a fetish for brown-golden eye look :D. The Revlon Customeyes pentad surely added some variety to it.

When I purchased this palette last week, I picked it up out of my previous experience with the other palette in “Naturally Glamorous” . See these are the little things that can annoy us about a brand, brand quality needs to be consistent, and based on that we trust a particular range and pick up products blindly.
Since my other palette was soft and creamy and very pigmented and hence when the SA told me there is no tester for this palette, I assumed this would be good enough considering this is from the same range. But I was wrong. I think this is the chalkiest and most white palette I have which will be used sparingly, may be just the white in there and the brown/ purple sometime. But overall, it is a disappointment. I wish I had picked up the “Metallic chic” one!
There are 6 palettes from this range, consisting of mauves, greens, blues, a nude,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-2-eyeshadow-palette-319, and the bronze one. But this one being the lightest and everyday wear shade, I picked it up.
The colors are quite nice honestly if they were not chalky. The light pink and the peach are both chalky, the purple is gorgeous but again is not as soft. The white for the highlight in the center is the softest one and the brown at the end is an average brown which is absolutely matte.
All the colors are matte and the purple and the pink at the far end are slightly pearly, but no shimmer so to say and this is reason this could have been a great soft pigmented nude palette, but the shades are not pigmented, they don’t show up, they feel all white on the lid, are all matte and powdery, and they are chalky too. Overall I don’t know why it is priced at Rs. 625!
I tried doing a look with this but the only color that was showing up was the brown and the highlight,http://makeupbop.com/! rest all were all similar or white or not visible,http://makeupbop.com/urban-decay-m-6.I wish they would show up more and were soft and pigmented and not this way.The other palettes are way better than this one.
I like the packaging and the color choices but I find it very hard to work with, on Indian skin tones. It comes with a two-sided sponge applicator that I don’t really care about.I might use the highlight and the purple color from this in the future but then not the palette as a whole.
Overall, what could have beena great nuetral palette turned out to be quite chalky and under average. based on my previous experience with this range, I had picked this one up after my love for the soft Naturally Glamorous one, but it was a mistake,I hope I could save someone’s money by this. :)Spend Rs. 200 more and get these high intensity palettes rather!

This is my first palette from Colorbar. I have singles in the shades black, blue,http://makeupbop.com/, green and gold, all of which have been reviewed on IMBB. This one, I believe is one of the five new eye shadow trios they have come out with,http://makeupbop.com/p/urban-decay-naked-3rd-eyeshadow-palette-315, the shades are purple,http://makeupbop.com/benefit-m-1, blue, pink, light blue and this one is beige.
I was amazed to see such gorgeous trios from Colorbar and when I swatched it, I gave my heart away to the soft, deep, pearl and metallic shades. This one in nude was a clear winner since all the others were a little too much since they were in pink and purple, well I would still wear purple and both the blues were nice too, but this one seemed to be more wearable.
I totally loved the packing, the mirror finish at the back. The casing comes packed in a sponge and then in the cardboard, nicely secured till I chose to throw the pack away. The trio comes with a soft sponge applicator as well, which can be used when you just want to use the single color on the lid and may be make an outer V on the go. Apart from that, I don’t like when these applicators drop all over the place. I would rather dispose them.
The texture of the shadow is brilliant. I can say this is better than many Revlon and L’Oreal shadows I have used. The feel to it is very soft. The finish is pearly and metallic. The lightest shade in this trio being the most metallic.
One of the shades is a real copper shade. This one to me looks very over the top since it looks strictly bridal or maybe Indian traditional wear, but the other two shades in the light taupe and the pearly beige are gorgeous, can be worn any time. I like to use one of the shades in that medium, all over the lid, when I don’t want to wear much eye shadow and that is the reason I bought this shade in seductively nuede because I will reach out to it more than any purple I would have bought.
I would say the staying power is fine as well, but due to my oily eyelids and the weather here, it would last shorter than what it would otherwise. I would say it can easily last for 4 to 5 hours without creasing on normal skin.
The pigmentation is so fantastic that you don’t need a primer for this shade to pop out. It shows up well and just like the name suggests, in a nice nude.
For Rs. 550, this one is gorgeous, soft, pigmented and very nice to look at with wearable shades. I would say you should try these at the counter and this one is my particular favourite that I am recommending.
