In The Spotlight: MAC Club Eye Shadow

Welcome to another edition of "In The Spotlight" and today we are featuring MAC Club eye shadow. When you google MAC Club, you come across mixed reviews about this shade and almost negligible reviews from Indian blogs. We Indians are I guess still exploring the possibilities with makeup and tend to walk on the safe path... Especially for products that cost the earth, we like to checkout reviews online extensively and look at swatches after swatches and then finally go with a shade that seems to be the most popular with all beauty bloggers... We all end up with similar shades of eye shadows like Naked Lunch, Mythology, Expensive Pink, Cork, Carbon Black, Folie, Texture, Rice Paper to name a few...


Now this doesn't quite work for me... Why, I don't know but it just doesn't... Now am not saying don't read reviews on beauty blogs, rather if I said that then I would be putting my feet on the "kulhari" myself :P But what I want to tell you all is that read reviews about a product, but check out swatches in person at the store... For example, review of one MAC eye shadow will be the same for all eye shadows! They are awesome! PERIOD... Browse through various EOTDs but swatch them on yourself before yo buy it cause when you go on a swatching spree at MAC you discover hidden jewels like Nylon, Club, Patina, Green Smoke, Ego, Honesty to name a few :)

So anyways, I got myself this magical eye shadow quite a while back and have even reviewed it here...
REVIEW OF MAC CLUB



The "magical" thing about this eye shadow is that on its own its a pretty, light mossy green eye shadow but when you apply it over a black base, then the shade of green that it takes on is just plain exotic and mysterious :)

Take a look at my EOTD below... It's an attempt at smokey eye and quite a good one that too... Yup I have always been the humble one ;) Now would you believe it if I said that only one shadow i.e. MAC Club has been used to create this smokey eye and no other eye shadow.. Not even black... Yes of course I have used a highlighter shade but thats it! The dimensions this eye shadow gives you is just unparalleled and I am totally smitten by it...




 
Do let me know what you think of the EOTD and the eye shadow :)

    1. Thank you Sharmistha :) ♥ I haven't used any eye shadow on my crease just MAC Club... It gives the illusion of "black" in the crease right? :)

  4. This one is gorgeous so unique...loved ur EOTD...true what you have said about swatching the product and not buying blindly just because a blogger has put up a great review about it...I know so many people who would blindly pick up stuff just because of that without paying heed to such gorgeous jeweles like this that they have around

    1. Thank you Parul :D yup I am glad that you agree about people "blindly" buying shades that are reviewed by a beauty blogger... it doesn't make sense to me... MAC Cosmo is soo raved about but it never worked for me :( So much so that I am planning to sell it :(

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

Ooooohss And Aaahhss!! 1. Really really stays on forever. 2. Doesn't smudge on my oily lids even after 8 hours of wear. 3. Friendly to the pocket 4. Faces have become quite easily available now. 5. They do not cause any allergies or reactions. 6. They are waterline safe a…

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
