Thanks a lot for all your comments and appreciation for my DIY article “How To Make Body Lotion Bars at Home“. I will now keep experimenting and coming up with more DIYs in future.
Ever since I have joined IMBB, I am always on the lookout for quality cosmetic products and of course, deals and discounts. And this time, I found a good deal on a few makeup items, thanks to Madam Gupshup. There was a sale going on in one of the forums, and I decided to buy a few items from Swati Rao. I must mention that the whole experience of buying stuff from Swati was a fulfilling one, and I look forward to buying more stuff from her in the future,too. Swati, I hope you’re listening.
Today, I am going to review Faces Canada NSH003 Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow. So, is it a hit or a miss? Read on to find out.
A selection of creamy rich shadows that glide on smoothly, blending into skin with ease. A perfect highlight to finish off the look of your eyes. Dewy and bold, these eye colours are ideal for all occasions. Can be worn alone or paired with other products.
INR 499 for 2 grams. I bought it for INR 200 from the forum sale.
My Experience with Faces NSH003 Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow:
This is my first cream eye shadow, and my first purchase from the brand, Faces Canada. Coming to the packaging, this single shimmer cream eyeshadow comes in a black case, where the centre of the outer lid is transparent. This enables you to view the colour from outside, without having to open the case. The packaging is quite sturdy and the product stays in place despite any mishaps.
This eye shadow has both, copper and gold shades, and looks lovely. It is super pigmented, and a little goes a long way. This eye shadow has a smooth and creamy texture. At the same time, if you swipe multiple times, the eye shadow tends to crumble slightly. This shade is perfect for weddings or family get–togethers and will perfectly complement any traditional attire.
The staying power somewhat disappointed me. I have super oily eyelids and I realized this only after I started using this cream eyeshadow. The eye shadow hardly stays on my lids and requires reapplication after just an hour or two. I had used a base (read concealer plus compact), but it didn’t help. The shadow also creased a bit on my eyelids. I am not sure if a good eye primer like The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion, would help. I have not tried to pair this eye shadow with any other shadow, powder or cream. Since it creases, I am afraid that it will spoil the entire look.
Let us look at the pros and cons of this product.
Pros of Faces NSH003 Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow:
• Sturdy packaging.
• Lovely shade.
• Good pigmentation.
• Creamy and smooth texture.
• Cruelty free brand.
• Perfect for weddings or parties.
Cons of Faces NSH003 Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow:
• Quite pricey for a single eyeshadow.
• Doesn’t stay on super oily lids.
• If swiped multiple times, the shadow tends to crumble.
• Ingredients list not mentioned.
Would I Repurchase/Recommend Faces NSH003 Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow?
I have mixed feelings when it comes to this product. I love the shade, but I am really put off by its poor staying power. But, I guess that will be the case with any cream eyeshadow. Go for it, if you don’t have super oily lids. But, I think there are better options at better prices.
See you soon, ladies.
Till then, stay beautiful, stay stylish.
