In case you have been wondering if I have vanished, no, I have not. This week, it has been raining in Kolkata. Every evening, it would just start out of nothing and come down as a heavy downpour. I got caught up, twice and I'm now down with fever. But that does not mean this space should stop. Does it?
So, I'm here with a review. Faces had won me over with their lipsticks, blushes and their single eye shadows. Now it's turn for their eye shadow duo in shade Smokey Look.
It's a duo as you can see and comes in a sleek, nice to feel box. It has an inbuilt mirror which I find quite handy. The applicators provided are good and does a pretty job. I still prefer my brushes.
The best thing I liked was that the colors are coordinated in such a way, just spread the lighter on the inner half of the lid and the darker on the outer half, blend the seams and at the sockets, it gives a beautiful smokey effect. What can get easier than this? Actually, I feel most brands do this, that's why I prefer buying the trios or quads or duos, rather than a big whole palette. I don't have to think too hard on the shades then. ( I know I'm lazy).
So, boiling down everything
Price: 399 INR
Shade: Smoky Look. A few other duos are also available
- A handy duo. The colors are coordinated so that, you won't have to tax your brain thinking about the right shades.
- The package is sleek and nice.But tends to become scratched.
- The shadows are soft.
- Decently pigmented.
- The applicator does a good job and the mirror is quite handy.
- No significant fall outs. \Can be buit up
- Stays put for quite a long time
- The only thing price. Faces has much better options at much reasonable price and there is no compromise on the quality. When I review their Go-Chic eye palette, you'd see what I mean. Even for about a hundred bucks more, you can get the I-shine palette which comes in four shades. For the quality which in my opinion doesn't vary much, perhaps, the others fared even better, I won't say this is the best option you have.
Do I recommend? I am at a loss. Kindly go through the post carefully and make our own decision :)
Have a great day!
The product was sent to me by the brand for consideration. But that has not affected my opinion.
