Thanks to IMBB, I have expanded my horizons from basic kajal and lip gloss to lipsticks and now eyeshadows as well! Today, I will be reviewing the Faces Eyeshadow Duo in Amber. I felt it is a perfect colour combination for ethnic wear and if applied lightly, the copper one can also be used for daily wear as well.
It consists of two shiny metallic colours. The first one is a copper and the second one is a beautiful pink. I am finding it very difficult to describe the colours as I am writing a review of a makeup product for the first time, so apologies for the same. You will get a better idea from the swatches. The colours are very prettey, universally flattering kind.
Very good pigmentation and a single swipe shows up a lot of colour even with no primer.
It is very soft and easy to blend so much so that it can be just dabbed on with fingers as well. I had swatched a lot of eyeshadows from other drugstore brands before I bought this and I found its texture to be the best.
Quite good, it lasted for 6 hours intact with no primer (but my lids are not oily and I used a generous dusting of compact before putting on the eyeshadows) after which I removed it. Removal too is easy, just comes off with a single swipe of makeup remover/oil. Also, the whole face does not become glittery unlike some other eyeshadows where the glitter travels all around the face. With these shadows, it just stays put.
Sleek and basic. A compact black plastic casing which is pretty with a decent-sized mirror for touchups. This case is in turn packed in a cardboard box. The click open mechanism is easy to use and quite tight and travel friendly. Just to be on the safe side, I keep it in the cardboard box while travelling. It comes with a two-sided applicator which is okay, but does the job in my case as I just put a single colour on the entire lid and blend it out with my fingers. I have also got the Faces eyeshadow brush and I am using that to apply, and it is easy and quick this way and I prefer this brush.
Rs. 399/- for 2×2 gm, but available cheaper when purchased online.
Pros of Faces Canada Glam On Eye Shadow Duo – Amber:
- Beautiful colours, good for beginners.
- Good pigmentation.
- Good staying power.
Cons of Faces Canada Glam On Eye Shadow Duo – Amber:
- Nothing really, considering the price and since I do not have much experience in makeup.
I would give it 5/5 as it is a very good duo for beginners with pretty colours, affordable price, and good quality. I am now on the lookout for a neutral palette or a single eyeshadow of champange shade, please suggest if you know some.
Will I Buy Faces Canada Glam On Eye Shadow Duo – Amber Again?
I do not think I will hit the pan any time soon as I use eyeshadows occasionally, but I would definitely buy more Faces eyeshadow duos in other colours and definitely recommend it for ethnic wear and especially for beginners.
