Today I’m reviewing the FACES Glam On Color Perfect Eyeshadow quad in shade Smokey which I featured in this look. This is a new launch from Faces and the eye shadow quads come in several different color combinations. Smokey is the neutral palette from this range.
Price : Rs 599
FACES Glam On Color Perfect Eyeshadow Smokey – Review
The eye shadow quad comes housed in a black compact case with a mirror inside. The packaging is quite sturdy and I like the well designed compact. The eye shadows are reasonably soft in terms of texture and have good color pay off. They are not very buttery though so you may need to build the color to get the maximum intensity. The formula varies slightly with the 2 medium shades being the most pigmented and smooth and the lightest and darkest shades being slightly dry. The dark plum shade was slightly patchy and didn’t apply too well. I think the bronzy shade is the best shade in this palette and that is what I’ve worn all over the lid in my look.
The shadows wore quite well on my lids, surprisingly well in fact! They did not crease till after 7 hours of wear (no primer) and even after that, the creasing was mild and not very noticeable. They do fade away after 8 hours though but I still think the wear time is quite good considering my lids are on the oilier side. This is the only neutral color combination in this range and I was hoping it would have more warm, flattering colors but the palette is a bit of a mixed bag. Replace that silvery highlighter with a golden highlighter and the plum with a chocolate brown and you have a killer neutral palette right there! I just think the slightly cool colors in this palette are not the most flattering shades for Indian complexions.
At Rs 599, its not a bad bargain if you like the shades but personally, I would have liked warmer colors and a softer formula!
Rating : 3.5/5
Look – Wearing the bronze (#3) shade all over the lid and the plum (#4) shade in the outer corner.
