Hello Folks!

It is priced at INR. 899 and has twelve shades belonging to the nude/neutral category. It comes in a neat, sturdy and travel friendly plastic box.

The shades are a mixture of mattes, shimmery ones and satin finishes.

On the top row, (from left to right), the first shade is a shimmery cream color and would make a gorgeous brow bone highlighter for fair – medium skin tones. It has iridescent glitter and according to me, this shade is suitably pigmented. If the pigmentation was more intense, it would have looked chalky on my fair – medium skin tone.

The second shade is a satin finish taupe. It has average pigmentation but it is easy to apply and extremely blendable. It would make a great over all lid color for medium skin toned people. Due to its bendability and satiny finish, I also love it as a transition color and to blend darker eye shadows.
                                                             
The third shade is a matte light peachy brown shade. It would make a gorgeous day time highlighter and despite being matte it is not chalky. It does not have any fallout and has average pigmentation.

The Fourth shade is a gorgeous bronze color in satin finish. It has decent pigmentation and looks gorgeous on our Indian skin tones. It does not have any obvious fallout and is easily blendable.

The next shade is my favourite. It is a gorgeous matte taupe brown color. It is extremely versatile and I love to use it as an overall lid color during the day time.

The last shade in the top row is a matte dark brown that leans more towards grey when blended. I am not a fan of this shade as it is poorly pigmented for such an intense color. It does not have any fallout and is easily blendable.

Coming to the second row, the first shade is a metallic light brown color. It tends to emphasize the appearance of dark circles in my skin tone. Texture is not chalky and is easily blendable. It would look pretty on a Caucasian or extremely fair skin tone but on me, it is a NO!

The next color is a matte brown color which is does not look as intense as it looks in the pan. I was totally disappointed with this shade. It has poor pigmentation and I was not even interested to see how it blends.

The next one is a gorgeous metallic gold. Though it feels creamy while swatching, on application I did notice some fallouts. This shade looks gorgeous as an inner corner highlighter as I have slightly pigmented tear duct area and matte shades tend to look stark against it. Pigmentation is surprisingly good.

The fourth shade is a purplish metallic brown color that looks stunning on my eyes. It has more brown in it than purple and makes a wonderful choice for the easy smokey eye looks.

The next shade is a shimmery champagne color. It looks pretty in the pan but on my eye lids, it looks chalky and too much white than champagne.

The last shade is a very dark grey. It reminds me of one eye shadow I had from LA girls. It is not black but black. I love the way it makes my eyes look when i run it over my lower lash line after lining my waterline with dark kohl.

I have mixed opinions about this palette. The top row did not impress me much. They could have done better in the pigmentation part.

I wore a simple eye look from this eye shadow palette today with a primer underneath on a shopping trip. I dont normally wear multiple colors on my lids as i am quite bad at blending them patiently. But as i wanted to try this out, i went ahead and applied multiple colors. So if you find the blending to be bad, blame me! 

The shades did not crease or fade even after 5 hours of shopping but I am not sure if I would get the same effect without a primer.

Overall, it is a decent palette to start with for makeup amateurs but If you have used the likes of MACs and Kryolan, you will be disappointed! For me, i am not crying over the money spent as i can still make use of this palette with my Kryolan eye shadow primer. I like this but i am not crazily impressed by it. 

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
3.5/5

It is definitely worth a try if you are a makeup newbie and are looking for affordable neutral eye shadows to start with.
