SPARKLE DUST........

Pin It
I have seen bath and other products of the brand "faces" through out the city but never did i see "makeup" till i visited the mall "High Street Phoenix" when my sis came. This is quite a new brand in our country so they were promoting it aggressively. Lot of people were trying out their makeup products and i was intrigued. Thought....why not check out what the fuss is all about. In the display counter itself they had placed their shadow,nail polish,lip gloss etc testers and i was impressed with the colors they have. I quickly turned my attention to shadows as i saw some stack of pigments on their counter.

The SA was more than helpful and opened it and swatched the colors for me. I don't own many mac pigments & personally i think they are amazing......but i sure don't need that much!!!!! One bottle is sure enough to last me several lifetimes. I only have 2 mac pigments with me and i stopped buying them after tat as they tend to be super expensive and i don't wear eyeshadows everyday eventhough i love 'em.

Now coming back to our brand.....I bought 2 stacks. One is big and the other one is a small stack.
They do come in individual pots but they are expensive and no one needs that much pigment!! So i stick with the stacks.

They have "shimmer" in 'em and hence the name "sparkle dust". But the shimmers are not off putting or anything. Really subtle and wearable.The pigment itself is finely milled and they are not gritty at all. The price is pretty ok too, for the big stack it is around 600 rs(it has 8 pigments) and the small stack costs around 400 rs(5 pigments).The staying power of the pigments is pretty good(i tried the pigments on my eye for a look which i will post and had it on my eyes for 3 hrs and no probs!)

Now coming to the cons. Well if you do buy them and like one pigment the most then you can't carry it alone and will have to take all the stack together! unless you transfer the pigment into another small container.Some of the colors show themselves much better when they are foiled. The fall outs are there but not too much. So i will advice, if u do use these pigments do the eye makeup first and put foundation on. Then one can clear the fall outs easily and proceed with the makeup.













































































































































































































































So what do you think? i know some of 'em are blurred (sorry).
You can also make nail polishes (here) and lipglosses too with these.
For me they are worth a buy and would definitely buy another new stack.

What abt u guys? willing to give this new brand a try?????

Tanveer Parmar said...

They look awesome! I was wondering if you use them wet or dry? also have u tried mixing them with a cream base to make cream eyeshadow, does it work well that way?

indianmakeupways said...

@tanveer:-some lighter shadows work well when they are foiled. all the others work well wet or dry. i dint try to mix them with a cream base yet but am sure it will work as almost all pigments do!

They are beautiful. I have swatched them all as well as tried them as shadows..And price was quite attractive too..But then again, like you said. whether I would use them on such a regular basis is a confusion..So left them.But I did get mono shadows from faces..quite impressive
