Line: Minerals Eye Shine
Shade: Berry Bliss
Price: INR 599
One thing that I am finding pretty much interest in, nowadays-is to move beyond the simplistic "Liner and Kohl" look for everyday wear. I don’t want to go for something outrageous-like tangerine and yellow with green sparkly liners- but a touch of color in the eyes has a very subtle appeal-that instantly distinguishes the look from the commonplace ones. And yes-the color has to be matte-or at most-matte with a silky sheen! Anything shimmery! OUT!
I am addicted to brown shadows when it comes to regular eye makeup. I simply pick up a brown pencil liner and smudge a broad line to get my everyday look. However-once I realized that pink and lilac shades-in matte or sheen-full matte (how does that sound like /wahaha) also looks good on me- I decided to head for the Faces Minerals Eye Shine Trio in Berry Bliss, seeing it at a store.
One thing I dislike about the brand Faces is that-it doesn’t have a website to properly promote or at least give a description of its products. I mean-come on-how much time does it take to make a webpage and float it?? And knowing that today’s people love to check out even Vindi recipes on the internet before cooking it-not having a proper website is a SIN for a brand! I didn’t find this particular product at major online shopping sites-except Health Kart-and there too-no description is available-so I would have to proceed with my own experience only :(
I find this eyeshadow trio to be a very useful one-in terms of selection of colors, pigmentation and finish. The combo comprises of the typical lid-crease-browbone colors. The pigmentation is average. With primer-the brightness of the colors remains almost the same but staying power increases as expected. I find this trio somewhat close to Maybelline Eyeshadow quad in time for wine. The crease color in deep lilac is matte, the pink is pearly in finish and the lightest shade for browbones is also pearly with more sheen than the pink shade. There are some other very good combinations in this trio range-there are four in total. These are the shades:
1) Beechwood 2) Blue moon 3) Berry bliss and a close-to-Pink trio-whose name I am not sure of :(
|Blue Moon (Available currently at HealthKart)|
The four combos cover a good range of shades-except greens-most of commonly used colors are available . However, the price is much on the higher end for an eyeshadow-while NYX trios come for Rs 520, Maybelline quads-with comparative quality are at Rs 230-the Faces Trio are currently priced at Rs 599.
