Colorbar Eyeshadow Sticks

Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Sticks.

Applying perfect eye-shadow will no longer be a tricky job with Colorbar All Day Waterproof Eyeshadow Sticks. Fall in love with this blend-able and highly pigmented do-it-all eye-shadow stick, which also doubles up as eyeliner. Its velvet powdery, lightweight texture is a smudge proof and doesn’t transfer on the upper eyelid and also can use it to shade, define, smoke-up and highlights.

Sharpen the tip with a detachable sharpener (attached at the back of the stick) for precise application and use it to shade, define, smoke-up and highlights. Its velvet powdery, lightweight texture is smudge proof and doesn’t non-transfer on the upper eyelid.

MAC Paint Pot

MAC Paint pots are creamy and light weight and blend easily. They are a good buy for those who need a long lasting eye shadow base and more so paint pots give quick wash of colour. One can build up the shade as desired and they do not have a tendency to fade much.
Below are eleven paint pots swatches from their permanent collection.
MAC Paint Pot Frozen Violet
  • MAC Rubnesque This shade is a golden peach with loads of shimmer in it. You can easily wear it alone and I think it will go best on people with yellow undertones.

  • MAC Indian Wood This is a warm bronzy gold shade and moment I saw it I knew I had to buy it. I did a bridal makeup look with this one which you might like to check.
  • MAC Constructivist It’s a copperish brown with subtle shimmer. This shade is going to suit fair complexion girls better I believe. Looking at the shade all I can think of is using this all over the eyelid and Rubnesque in the inner corner of my eyes. Just too pretty.

MAC Pigment in Tan

I always want to start with some of the MAC pigments but moment I enter into MAC store all I see is MAC eye shadows, lipsticks and then these take a back seat. Does this happen with you too?

Pigments is such a multipurpose product albeit one requires wee bit of practice in getting used to of it but a makeup addict won’t take much of time in learning the art. Isn’t that true ?

NYX Peach Bronze Eyeshadow

Packaging- This eye shadow comes in a black square shaped case with a transparent lid. The lid is tight and locks well. So the packaging is quite cute and travel friendly.

NYX Single Eyeshadow Peach Bronze EOTD

Color, smell and texture- the shade, as the name says peach bronze, is a soft shade of bronze. This shade has minute shimmers in it and they don’t fall out as they are very tiny. This is a pretty golden peach shade and very flattering on every Indian skin tone. Also it can be used during both day and night. In day time, you have to apply a little amount and for the night you may apply tons of this ( not literally) to make your golden eyes.
