Swatches: Faces 5 Eyeshadows Palette

Review of Faces 5 Eyeshadow Palette

Guest Post By: Shabby 

I am more of a kajal and lip balm kind of woman and don.t usually indulge in heavy eye makeup especially eye shadows. But I love colors and this palette is all about colors. It is an eye shadow palette from Canadian Makeup Brand Faces.

Faces Eye shadow Palette consists of five different Eye shadows in shades:
327(Purple), 188(Blue), 336(Yellow), 034(Green), 200(Red)

It.s quite a treat to the eyes, especially for a makeup enthusiast like me. The colors are rich in pigmentation and are bright. They are really well without any Eye Primer/Base and with base I.have found they stay 6 hours easily, after which the intensity of color fades. All the shades here are shimmery. The shades are great for special traditional occasions and parties. The colors come out very well when I layer it on top of a black eye pencil/ cream shadow while doing Smokey eyes too. Here are the swatches:

As you can see the least pigmented is the Purple 327 one. The blue(188), the green(034) are very pigmented. used the red one numerous times and it is intense too. Other than the Purpleone I love all of the shades:

1. Nice Colors
2. Great pigmentation
3. Color payoff is well even without base
4. Staying power is average
5. Colors are great choices for traditional and parties

1. Contains shimmer particles which I know some dislike
2. These come in a special package including eye pencil, base etc and not sold individually


  1. Looking really nice on you Shabby..
    Btw, what's the price of this palette and which lip color are you wearing?

  2. Very wearable colors.. Nice review n you look pretty.. :)

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: L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame

Review of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Longwear High Impact Stick - Fuchsia Fame
Right now am sitting at the dining table trying to figure out a way to start this post in an "interesting" way... I am obviously struggling... There are these times when your mind just goes blank and you can't think of anything, right? Yeah, I am having one of those moments...

So, I guess I'll directly dive into the review and not mull around. I bought the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick on a whim... I was out window shopping at Shoppers Stop and I just happened to glance at the L'Oreal counter and this cute little stub caught my fancy... The moment I swatched it I knew I had to buy it...

Price of L'Oreal Paris Infallible Blush Paint Stick It costs a whopping INR 999/-

There is nothing much to talk about the packaging. It is exactly what it looks like, a rotating chubby stick with a cap. The plastic doesn't seem cheap and is pretty sturdy. I have d…

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.
