Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

I've had this palette for a good six months now so I thought I'd review it. I was initially very sceptical about how the cool toned colours would look on me but I guess it can work if you balance it out with darker shades. For me, it also depends on the outfit and the kind of jewelry I'm wearing. Gold? Nope, won't be using this. Silver, rose gold? Yes! Anyway, moving on, the palette itself like the other Urban Decay palettes is great quality wise. There are a few shades that aren't…Read more
Inglot 439 Pearl Eyeshadow

Inglot 439 Pearl Eyeshadow

I have a midweek trip to the mall and some damage will be done! feeling guilty even as I'm typing this but there are a bunch of things I've wanted for a long time! Anyway, speaking on nice things, here's one of the best eyeshadows in the market, Inglot 439 Pearl. It's a gorgeous cool toned purple eyeshadow with purple and at times blue micro shimmer. The pearl finish really makes this standout. It's the middle shade in my 5 pan palette. As you'd expect from Inglot, the eyeshadow is very pigmented indeed.…Read more
Mac Satin Taupe Eyeshadow

Mac Satin Taupe Eyeshadow

If you've been reading any beauty blog long enough, you've probably heard of this eyeshadow a million times. Mac eyeshadows are overall pretty good but some are exceedingly well made; Satin Taupe is one of them. It's a frost finish but formula wise it feels similar to the Veluxe Pearl range. The colour is something that would work on absolutely anyone. It's a grey taupe with a hint of brown. The silver pearlescent shimmer also gives it a more rich look. It's a colour that can work really well as a transition colour. For a…Read more
Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Woodstock Eyeshadow

Urban Decay wins when it comes to eyeshadows! I managed to get my hands on this gorgeous and alarming pink eyeshadow. Urban Decay Woodstock is a pearly fuchsia eyeshadow. It's also described as a deep pink shimmer. It has pink and silver shimmer. How amazing is the colour though? I can keep staring at it for hours! The quality is great, on par with rest of the pearl finish UD eyeshadows. It's very smooth and buttery to touch. It's also very pigmented and the payoff is good as well. I like that even…Read more
Mac Expensive Pink Eyeshadow

Mac Expensive Pink Eyeshadow

Mac Expensive Pink is another gorgeous eyeshadow which much like All That Glitters, speaks for itself. It has pink, gold and a lovely sheen to it, why will girls not like it? Expensive Pink is Veluxe Pearl finish, by far my favourite from Mac. It's a peachy pink with gold shimmer in it. Depending on your lighting it can look more pink or peachy at the time. But it's the gold sheen that really makes this colour look rich. This is great to wear on festive occasions, weddings etc. You can use this…Read more
Mac All That Glitters Eyeshadow

Mac All That Glitters Eyeshadow

Hope you're all having a great weekend! All That Glitters is that classic Mac eyeshadow that everyone needs to swatch atleast once in person if not buy. It's a gorgeous beige warm shimmery colour. It almost looks a bit peachy to me. If I had to pair this with a nail polish, it would most definitely be Essie Buy Me A Cameo. Mac All That Glitters is a Veluxe Pearl eyeshadow, one that Mac describes as a "beige gold pearl". It's a colour that suits both undertones and has a very subtle warmth…Read more
Inglot AMC Shine 10 Eyeshadow

Inglot AMC Shine 10 Eyeshadow

I'm reviewing another one of my favourite Inglot eyeshadows. This one is from the AMC Shine range which have a lot of microshimmer in them, somewhere between pearl and double sparkle. Inglot AMC Shine 10 is a light melon orange with silver microshimmer. When it hits the light it can also look a bit gold in colour.  It looks more like a pastel shade in the pan but it translates really well on the lid. If you use this with bronze and brown colours, it's very easy to create festive looks. While it…Read more
Maybelline The Colossal Kajal

Maybelline The Colossal Kajal

Maybelline relaunched the Colossal Kajal a while back. I'm not sure if the formula is entirely new but they claim that it lasts 12+ hours, is smudge proof and water proof! Let's see about that! I had actually never used the Colossal Kajal before. I know, shocking! I always had Lakme, some other Maybelline one but once I found perfection in my Mac Technakohl Liner, I didn't really look for any others. The Colossal Kajal is very soft and creamy to apply. You kinda have to be careful to not break it while…Read more
Inglot 426 Pearl Eyeshadow

Inglot 426 Pearl Eyeshadow

Hey guys, today I'll be reviewing one of Inglot's eye shadows. It's a pearl finish called 426. I've gone on about this many times but can I just say how terrible it is that none of these have non-numeric names? A lot more brain cells died when I tried to recall this name. Anyway, 426 is a really gorgeous blue in a pearl finish. I leave it just at that because to me, it's like that true blue which is not too yellow or green but smack in the middle of the spectrum.…Read more
Urban Decay Buck Eyeshadow

Urban Decay Buck Eyeshadow

If I had a list of holy grail products, a list of makeup when you're stuck on an island or the if-i-were-to-pick-only-one-eyeshadow list, this product would feature in all of them. After that lengthy and dramatic introduction, this eye shadow is Urban Decay's Buck. This one is also present in the Naked palette which is how I first encountered it. It's a medium brown colour which has a neutral undertone I'd say. You can also see a bit of taupe in it. Either way, I loved this colour so much that I bought…Read more
