Ferrarucci Professional Eyeshadow Palette Review

As a beauty blogger, I love experimenting with different brands. Today I will talk about Ferrarucci cosmetics that I came across recently. I tried their Eyeshadow palette and would like to share my experience with you all.




About Ferraruci Cosmetics :

Ferrarucci Professional Makeup is a professional makeup brand, from Germany, established by two young men in 2000 whose main products are cosmetics especially for ordinary consumers and makeup artists. Their original intention was to meet professional’s needs of a variety of makeup styles so as to get various effects from traditional classic to extravagant luxury.

Ferrarucci Professional Makeup have the magic to be your own special makeup artist.

Ferrarucci Professional Eyeshadow Palette :
Ferrarucci Cosmetics have just launched this new palette. The palette is available in 4 shades. There are 12 unique eyeshadows with different scheme of colours. They are one of the best eyeshadow palettes with beautiful colours. Their eyeshadows are super pigmented, creamy and so easy to blend. They glide so well on the hands too when swatched. All I can say is that it is the most unique, beautiful and a rare combination of shades all in one palette and one such kind available in the market. This palette is made in Turkey.

The packaging is a hard cardboard where the eyeshadows are placed with a transparent plastic cover so that you can see the shades. It is a book of eyeshadows that you open. They are very easy to carry along. They are affordable and high quality product.

Tple Professional Makeup Brush Set Review

Hello Divas! I am sure you all would agree that Makeup is an art and the perfect or best art can be achieved only with great brushes. The brushes are fundamental tool for a makeup artist, whether professional or amateur. So it is very important to have good quality brushes. As a beauty blogger, I keep experimenting with my looks and love to try different brushes. Recently I came across a very new brand of brushes – ‘Tple Professional’ and I was really excited to try them on. I really thank the brand for trusting me and sending them across for review. In today’s post I shall talk about these beautiful Tple Professional brushes.


About Tple Professional :
T’Ple is a UAE home-based brand established since January 2017. They are at the moment specialised in Make up tools (Brushes) & False Eyelashes (Manufacturer in PRC) and Cosmetics (Manufacturer in Canada). 
First Impression/Packaging :

I was zapped to see the packaging and quality of Tple Professional Brush Set. The Brushes are so soft and have a very good finish. The handles of the brushes look luxurious with black and rose gold, are smooth and easy to grip. Each brush was individually packed inside the cosmetic clutch. The cosmetic bag is also very high end. The whole set can be compared to high end brands like Zoeva.

About Tple Professional Makeup Brush Set:



The set comes with 8 brushes. Let us look at all the brushes in detail.
1. Powder brush – Features with a large and soft rounded brush, made by synthetic, suitable for even powder application.
2. Foundation blending brush – Applying and blending foundation and base powder.

3. Contouring brush – Perfect choice for contouring and blending.

4. Bronzer brush – Made by natural goat hair which is blissfully soft, for contouring and shading on pressed or loose powder blusher or bronzer.

5. Concealer brush – Applying the concealer products around the eyes or other blemishes area, made by synthetic 
6. Blending brush – Providing the ultra-smooth transitions between eyeshadows. Perfect for blending.
7. Crease brush – Made by natural goat hair, which is durable, hold on to pigment very well, together with the Blending Brush helps blending out the eyeshadow beautifully.
8. Wing eyeliner brush – Made by synthetic, small angled brush head, helps applying the perfect wing eyeliner look. 


My Review/Experience :
It was love at first sight with Tple Professional Makeup Brushes. The Bristles of the brushes are very soft and have an impressive and luxurious design. Their quality can be compared to any high end brushes. They are very easy to work with no fall out and don’t absorb the product so much too. You can blend your makeup very well with it. These 8 brushes are specially good for beginners because that is all that you need for your full face makeup.
Do you know how to check the quality of makeup brushes? There should be no gap between the handle/holder and the bristles. Hold the bristles down and check. There was no gap and the bristles were held tightly to the brush handle. After using these brushes, I did wash them too to test their actual quality. I was not at all disappointed. There was no shedding at all and the handles still stay sturdy. Yay! Tple Professional Makeup Brushes pass the test. 
Overall Review :
Being new in the market, I should say Tple Professional Makeup Brushes stood in line with other high end makeup brushes. I am super happy that I found these brushes and they are part of my makeup game now. Totally recommend it and should definitely give them a try, you won’t be disappointed at all. If someone is looking for high quality and affordable makeup brushes, then this is it. I definitely look forward to try other products from the Tple Professional Brand as they look very promising and heard good reviews about them too.
Price :
Tple Professional Makeup Brushes Set are priced at AED 125.
Disclaimer : Though these makeup brushes were sent for review, my opinion are honest and my own. Some pics are mine and other pics are provided by the Brand itself.

Misslyn All in One Wonder Makeup Kit, Luminous Make Up Foundation and Perfect Precision Eyeliner Review

Hey Divas ! If you are on a hunt for affordable makeup, you have just stopped at the right place. Today I will talk about Misslyn Cosmetics, whom I just came across just recently, thanks to Sarah and believe me the products are of high quality and so good on your pockets too. It is comparatively a new brand, so I was excited to try it on.


For all who don’t know, Misslyn Cosmetics is a German brand making its mark in more than 30 countries, and still expanding. “I’m Sexy, I’m Innovative”, That is Misslyn tagline. The quality and pigmentation of each and every Misslyn product is amazing and you will thank me for recommending it out to you. All Misslyn products are dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin. What more do you want? Without further ado, lets get on with the review.
1. Misslyn All in One Wonder Makeup Kit :



Misslyn All in One Wonder Make Up Kit is all in one makeup kit for Face, Eyes and Lips. It is very easy to use as it comes in a compact kit. Misslyn All in One Wonder Makeup Kit is quite handy for travel as it has 40 Eyeshadows, 30 Lip gloss, 4 Blush (2 blush, 1 highlight and 1 Contour), 2 Eyeliner Pencil and 3 applicators. Isn’t it wonderful? The eyeshadows have a good mix of light and dark colours, matte and shimmery shades and have a smooth texture. Eyeshadows are very easy to blend, medium pigmented and are buildable. It is perfect kit as lot of eyeshadows to play with and perfect for beginners as well as advanced too. It is perfect quality and great colours.

What lovely colours !

2. Misslyn Luminous Make Up (Foundation 04) :




Since my skin is dry, I prefer to go for liquid foundations. The brand Misslyn claims Luminous makeup foundation to be a silky foundation with light reflecting pigments, settling on it a delicate veil of light. It also claims to provide the complexion with instant vitality making the skin look less tired. Squalane maintains the skin’s moisture level and has a smoothing effect. It also contains Vitamin E that helps to fight Negative environmental influences.

Packaging is quite simple with light brown plastic nozzle Though the cap shuts tightly, I can always find the foundation on the inside of the cap and the area around the nozzle on the outside. This is something that I did not like and somehow prefer the bottle with the pump packaging. Also, the foundation can only stand upside down, so all the product comes down towards the nozzle and if you are not careful in opening, it might create a mess.

See the foundation on the nozzle ?

Misslyn Luminous Make Up foundation comes in 6 different shades. I am in the shade 04 which is neither too pink or yellow and just right for me. The foundation has a very light texture and not at all cakey. It glides on very smoothly without leaving any trace. It has medium coverage which is buildable. This foundation gives a dewy finish quite similar to the finish of Make Up For Ever foundation.

My skin looked glowing, radiant and stayed intact all day. For oily skin, it is advised to set with a powder. My skin was dry and it stayed hydrated with luminous foundation for hours together. It is a superb foundation which is affordable and is of high quality. It reflects light better than some of the pricey foundations. It says it contains UV filter but not SPF factor is written, so it is advisable to wear sunscreen underneath. Also, it is not waterproof, which can be a bit of a concern for these summers or if you are going to the pool.

Overall, it is a great foundation for daily wear and totally loved it. As mentioned above it is dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin like mine.

3. Misslyn Perfect Precision Eyeliner :


Ball Point tip


Misslyn Perfect Precision Eyeliner is my ultimate favourite of the whole lot. A perfect and precise eyeliner can really define or glam your eyes well. I always love Eyeliner in pen format as it makes applying the eyeliner so easy and quick, much needed when you are in a hurry or on the go.

With the innovative ball point tip, the liquid eyeliner guarantees a simple and even application as well as perfect and precise lid line. The quality is amazing (can be compared to Kat Von D tattoo eye liner) and it is jet black. It is long lasting and stays all day,  but it is not smudge proof. Moreover it is small and slim, which makes it quite handy to carry in your makeup bag. As again, it is dermatologically tested and suitable for people wearing lenses or sensitive eyes.

It is so cute, small and handy

Only thing is that this Eyeliner is not waterproof, will be difficult in these summers.

Overall Review :
I was really impressed with the quality of all Misslyn Products, after all it is a German brand. I can compare their quality with good high end brands too. If you are looking out for new affordable makeup, then this is it girls. My favourite was definitely the Perfect Precision Eyeliner amongst the 3 and looking forward to try other Misslyn products.

Price :
Misslyn All in One Wonder Make Up Kit – Dh 70
Misslyn Luminous Makeup Foundation – Dh 69
Misslyn Perfect Precision Eyeliner – Dh 46

They are available at Life Cosmetics.

Max Factor Masterpiece Nude Palettes, Cappuccino Nudes and Rose Nudes – Review and Swatches

You all know by now, how much I love Max Factor products. It is really an underrated Drugstore product, though it is the makeup of many Makeup artists themselves and have great formula and pigmentation. Their product quality of a high end brand too. Max Factor recently launched these Masterpiece Nude eye contouring palettes and I was delighted to try them on. Today I will share my experience with the Max Factor eye contouring palettes along with their swatches.

Max Factor recently launched 3 eye contouring palettes, 01 – Cappuccino Nudes, 02 – Golden Nudes and 03 – Rose Nudes. All three palettes have a great mix of light and dark shades. The Cappuccino Nudes has cool shades, Golden Nudes has warm and the Rose Nudes are a great mix of pink nudes. I think Cappuccino Nudes and Rose Nudes form a great dupe of Urban Decay Naked palettes 2 and 3 respectively, though the packaging is different.


Packaging :
The packaging is very simple and transparent, so you can see the shades inside the palette and you needn’t open the palette to identify which one is it or what shades are inside. The gold is very typical of Max Factor and gives more of a luxury vibe. It is small sleek palette that comes in very handy for travel as it has got mix of light or natural and heavy or dark eyeshadows.
Review/Product experience :
Each palette comes with a double sided sponge brush which works very really well and not like the cheap brushes available outside. This Dual-nib applicator is for precision and smooth blending. The flat brush is to blend and the long one is to define.

Each palette has 8 perfectly paired neutral shades, both matte and shimmery, which can be used for create a daily nude look or subtle smoky eye. The eyeshadows are very pigmented, velvety smooth and buildable.  
Swatches :
I have used no filters so that you all have a look at the actual shades.
Max Factor Cappuccino Nudes swatches 
Max Factor Rose Nudes palette 
Overall Opinion :
As ever, Max factor never disappoints me with their products. Really impressed by the eyeshadow palette quality. A mirror to the palette would be an added advantage. It is very difficult to pick one from the 3 palettes and totally depends on one’s preference.

Available at all Lifestyle stores, some hypermarkets and Boots pharmacies across UAE. 

Tips to reduce Hair Fall Featuring Crescina Shampoo

Hair fall is a common problem in Gulf. Also, seeing a brush full of broken hairs is a grim scene that we all have to deal with on daily basis. Although reasons and cures for hair loss amongst men are widely discussed due to the fact that most of them are genetically predisposed to hair loss, the same issue amongst women is still considered a taboo topic. Hair loss can be caused by many factors, and whether it’s medical or lifestyle related, it is a problem that has to be addressed. Let me share some tips to reduce Hair fall.

I have used this shampoo several times and found it effective from the first wash itself. Here are top five trending hair loss solutions to help reduce hair shedding:


1 – Avoid Over styling your hair :


Extreme weather conditions are the main reason we resort to heat for styling hair, but over using these tools can cause significant damage to the hair and make it look brittle or frizzy. Also, hair styles than pull on the hair like: tight braids, cornrows and ponytails cause tension that leads to breakage or permanent hair loss. Thus, we recommend allowing your hair to air dry, avoid excessive brushing or the hair especially when it’s wet, using styling tools on low/medium heat settings and loosening braids or pony tails (Messy styles are in fashion anyway). 

2 – Relax, Manage your stress :

We can’t deny that stress can take over our lives sometimes due to daily workload or even unforeseen emotional events and this can contribute to hair loss. Luckily, many studies have shown that hair can grow back once the source of stress has been controlled. Trending stress relief remedies include: hypnotherapy and acupuncture – consult a physician on these treatments for best advise. Moreover, improving your sleep pattern by waking up and going to bed at the same time and exercising for at least 30 minutes a day will significantly relief stress causing your hair to fall.

3 – Use the right hair products :

Investing in a trusty hair system specifically designed to address this problem is your key to healthy, luscious hair. We recommend using Crescina re-growth shampoo that will stimulate the natural growth of hair. It comes in two grades (500, 1300) for both genders and depending on the severity of thinning or baldness. Available on basharacare.com

4 – Take your vitamins :

Another factor that contributes to thinning hair is bad diet or not gaining the right nutrients responsible for hair growth. Following a healthy diet and reaching for multivitamins like: Biotin, Iron, Zinc and minerals can significantly nourish your hair and promote natural growth.

5 – Pamper your scalp :

Grandparents and mothers often recommend hot oil massages – mainly for hair growth purposes. However, we’ve got the ultimate hair loss solution that your scalp will thank you for. Crescina re-growth 100% vials are the latest trend to reduce hair loss as it prevents ageing of follicles, stimulate cell longevity and the physiological growth of hair. This comes in different grades depending on the severity of thinning or baldness (200, 500 and 1300). Available on basharacare.com

It does contain certain level of sodium sulphate, however this combined with other active ingredients in the shampoo work to improve and stimulate hair re-growth and does not cause any damage to your scalp or hair texture. 
Crescina is available from leading pharmacies across the UAE, including Bin Sina from AED 179 (men) to AED 199 (women). For more information, please visit: http://www.labosuisse.com

The Ultimate Self Tanning Tips with Madame LA LA


The Ultimate Self Tanning Tips with Madame LA LA
** Achieve an LA Glow in an Instant and Shine like the A-List **
Self tanning is the safest way to get a golden glow and a modern alternative to bathing in the sun with its harmful rays.  The Madame LA LA self tan range is a favourite amongst the A-List for it’s additional toning, perfecting and hydrating properties, as well as its use of coco water, green tea and vitamin c to assist in anti-ageing. A fabulous all-rounder, Madame LA LA is inspired by the West Coast and luxurious beaches of Malibu and Santa Monica.
If you are looking to achieve that iconic LA glow, along with some clever contouring tips, Madame LA LA has all of the expert advice you need to ensure your tan game is officially ON!

As with everything, preparation is key. Make sure you have the following items to hand before you start to apply your Madame LA LA Self Tan Mousse (AED 195):
*A black towel – This will be your home tanning booth! Perfect to stand on to avoid any stains
*Plastic gloves or a mitt – This will avoid staining your hands
The next step for an even, all over golden glow is to exfoliate and moisturise thoroughly, focussing on any dry areas such as cuticles, ankles, feet and elbows.
You are now ready to apply your Madame LA LA Self Tanning Mousse by pumping the golden mousse directly onto your skin and smoothing all over using your gloves or a mitt.  It is important not to shake the bottle and use sparingly on areas with dry skin. Wait five minutes before dressing and do not shower for at least ten hours to allow the tan to develop. Wash hands thoroughly after use to avoid any streaks.
If you would like to contour some of your more troublesome areas, follow the below tips to take you to golden goddess in one stroke:
LEGS:
If you have always dreamed of legs like Giselle Bundchen, streamline your legs by tensing the muscles so you can see indentations running down the leg and inner thigh, then apply your self tanning mousse whilst keeping the muscles tensed. Apply a little extra on the muscle lines to shade, blend and voila – Giselle legs!
ABS:
To get Rihanna’s abs of steel without hitting the gym you need some serious body contouring. Tense muscles and apply Madame LA LA self tan mousse to your gloves/mitt and simply smooth over the stomach until formula is well blended and settled to add subtle definition.
ARMS:
Jessica Alba has gorgeously toned arms but you can create the illusion of slimmer defined arms by standing in front of the mirror and flexing your arm muscles. Once you have figured out where the natural definition is, apply self tan mousse to the contours of the upper arms and deepened shoulder bones to create that defined razor sharp look like Jessica’s.
FACE:
The Blake Lively-esque glow can be achieved for the face with anti-ageing properties of West Coast Face Bronzing Serum (AED 175) to smooth and blur the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  The serum is gentle enough to use on the face day or night and it is advisable to wash the face with cold water to seal pores, then moisturize, before applying a pea size amount to the face. It’s best to leave the face looking a little lighter than the body so you really don’t need to use much!

Top up your tan by moisturising daily, exfoliating and re-applying once a week.  Madame LA LA tanning mousse develops in three hours.  Madame LA LA Tan lasts for ten days and will leave you looking as if you have spent two weeks on Malibu beach!
Madame LA LA is available from Virgin Megastores, Dubai Mall, Mall of the Emirates and Yas Mall and online at www.beautysolutions-me.com

Max Factor Ageless Elixir Miracle Foundation, Miracle Touch Foundation & Smooth Miracle Primer Review

I am always on the look for good foundations to give my skin the flawless look. Luckily, Max Factor has recently launched the Miracle Foundation and also Ageless Foundation to helps me achieve the photo finish look. It has also launched the Smooth Miracle Primer which is the latest must have addition to the Max Factor Foundations. In today’s post I will share my reviews about these latest products.


Mr. Max Factor’s personalized approach to Make-Up
Artistry continues today, empowering women with the products and expertise to
bring out a woman’s strongest features. This approach is at the heart of the
Max Factor’s Miracle foundations, designed with a woman’s skin needs in mind.
No matter what a woman’s skin need, she should be able to find the right shade,
the right texture and the right end benefit to provide healthy looking,
youthful skin. 
Discover your Miracle Foundation :
Depending on your skin type, concerns and your desired end benefits, there are 2 types of Foundation.
1. The Skin Smoother : Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation – 


I have tried this foundation earlier in the Shade ‘Sand 60′ and repurchased it too. This is close to my skin shade and I have yet to get the perfect match as new shades have been launched recently. I have got the Shade ‘Rose Beige 065′ to review, which is a little dark and light pink or rose.

This foundation is one of the best that I have come across so far and one of the foundation that I started with actually. It comes with a transparent lid on one side (so that you can see the foundation shade) and a compartment with a mini sponge applicator on the other side. That makes it so apt for travelling and for touch ups too in your vanity bag. It is a skin smoothing foundation, that transforms from solid to liquid when applied on the skin, without settling into skin’s imperfections, for flawless even base. It is a long lasting foundation and stays good for hours together without cracking or fading.

The sponge applicator really does a good job in applying the foundation as good as the beauty blender. The foundation glides on very smoothly on the skin without leaving any traces. It is wonderful for dry skin like mine and gives medium coverage. I suggest you to apply powder and makeup fixing spray to set the foundation.

This foundation comes in 12 shades, so I am sure you will find one for your skin.

2. The Age Defier : Max Factor Ageless Elixir Miracle Foundation


This is a new launch. With both instant and long term benefits, the 2 in 1
formula provides flawless coverage while protecting against UV induced signs of
ageing. The best part is that it comes with SPF 15, so you need not layer your skin with sunscreen first. It is foundation and serum in one, so it takes care of your skin, giving that flawless look. Perfect for women who suffer from aged, tired looking skin. It stays again for hours together without cracking or fading.
I got the shade ‘Bronze 80′ to review, which is dark for my skin shade. I applied the foundation to review and was amazed with the results. It comes with a pump, that makes it so hygienic and pouring out only the amount that is needed as less is more in makeup ! It comes in a light weight transparent bottle, so you can see the shade of foundation and the amount of foundation left. You can apply the foundation with a brush or beauty blender. It blends really well in the skin without the cakey feeling. It provides a medium coverage and good for sensitive and dry skin like mine. I suggest to set the foundation with powder and fixing spray.
This foundation comes in 11 shades.
Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer :


“The
key to achieving a flawless base is all down to the primer. As a make-up
artist, I always prep and prime skin before applying foundation, to ensure the
skin is super smooth for a seamless foundation application and finish.”,
says Samira Olfat, Max Factor Regional Make-Up Artist .
Launching in February 2017, the NEW
Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer is the perfect complement to Max Factor’s suite
of Miracle Foundations, including Max Factor Miracle Touch and Max Factor Ageless Elixir Miracle.
Containing
a hydrating formula that instantly smooths the look of skin texture, the primer
allows for an even foundation application that transforms the skin’s appearance,
for healthy looking, youthful skin. 
Like the Ageless Elixir Miracle, The Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer also comes with a pump and in a transparent light weight bottle. The primer blends in so smoothly and it not at all greasy.
The primer also contains skincare
ingredients such as Glycerine, Niacinamide and N-acetyl Glucosamine, to
moisturise and condition skin for a super smooth surface. Powerful
anti-oxidants, such as Vitamin E, Niacinamide, Panthenol and Green Tea work to
contribute to healthier, younger looking skin. It is oil free and hence suitable for all skin. It worked well for my sensitive skin and did not leave any white traces.
Overall Opinion :
The Miracle Foundation when used in combination with Smooth Miracle Primer really gives a flawless look and healthy glowing dewy skin. I am highly impressed with all the products and totally recommend them.
Price :
Miracle Touch Foundation – AED 79
Ageless Elixir Miracle Foundation – AED 94
Smooth Miracle Primer – AED 101
These are available at Lifestyles stores and various pharmacies all across UAE.

Sì Eau de Parfum Rose Signature – Giorgio Armani Limited Edition Perfume

Happy Valentine’s Day peeps ! What are your plans for today? I have not yet decided anything for evening as yet. Today I plan to share something special for this Valentine’s Day. Sì Eau de Parfum Rose Signature from Giorgio Armani. It is a limited edition perfume from Armani which my hubby gifted me. I absolutely love it and want to share my thoughts on the same.

Si Eau de Parfum is a tribute to modern femininity and an irresistible combination of grace, strength and independent spirit. A total of 2,500 bottles only of Sì Eau de Parfum Rose signature are produced and I am lucky to have one. It is made in France.
Packaging :
The packaging of Sì is quite simple and like the fact that a Peach ribbon has been wrapped around it to make it unique. It gives a feeling of a bottle specially wrapped for you. It is a transparent bottle which shows you the colour of the perfume. Light twist given to the black cover adds another feminine touch.
Details :
A modern chypre reinvented, Si opens with deep blackcurrant nectar that softly recedes to airy florals. A base of musky blond wood adds lightness while grounding the fragrance for a lingering, distinctive trail. The colour of the perfume is Light Peach, the same colour as on the packaging. It truly captivates the senses.

The fragrance opens with notes of Sicilian Bergamot, Mandarin oil and Blackcurrant Liquer which is supported by a heart which bursts with Rose May, Neroli and Egyptian Jasmine. Warm undertones caress the unique chaperone base notes of Patchouli oil intertwined with Blond Woods, Amber and musky undertones known as OrcanoxTM. Finished with a sweet animatics accord of Vanilla which gives this fragrance, longevity and unforgettable sillage.


Fragrance Notes :
Top Notes – Sicilian Bergamot, Mandarin Oil, Liquer de Cassis
Heart Notes – Rose de Mai Absolute, Neroli Absolute, Egyptian Jasmine Absolute
Base Notes – Patchouli Oil, Blond Woods, Amber, OrcanoxTM, Vanille Absolute
Style : Graceful, Modern, Unconventional
Overall opinion :
I just love the combination of floral and woody perfume, which gives a soft and strong touch to it. I get lot of compliments when I wear it and it is pretty long lasting. It is totally one of my favourites.
Price :
My hubby got it from the Duty Free and since it was a gift I have no clue about the price.
I hope you enjoyed reading this. Enjoy your Valentine Day !

Paese Eyeshadows Review

Hola ! I have introduced you to Paese cosmetics in my earlier post, which you can read more about it here . I have been trying a lot of their products and hence breaking up it in to several reviews. Today I will discuss about their Eyeshadows that I was generously given by the Paese Cosmetics Team for review.


Paese is an award winning Polish brand and it is quite well known in Europe. They are not so known in the Middle East but their products are of amazing quality with very reasonable prices. I am sure you would love them too when you try them.
Now going ahead with the Eyeshadows :
Paese have different types of eyeshadows like Kashmir, Soft matt, Triple and Diamond. I have tried the Diamond and the Soft Matt Eyeshadows and will share reviews about the same.
1. Soft Matt Eyeshadows :



These are semi transparent eyeshadows with a silky soft consistency formula and they have medium pigmentation which is buildable. They are pretty long lasting if you apply eyeshadow primer as the base or eyeshadow base to set it. I think I have received the shade 503 (That is what I figured it out from the product catalogue. Neither the shade name or number was mentioned on the refill).
2. Diamond Eyeshadows :




These eyeshadows contain over 50 % of natural Pearl shadows that can be applied either wet or dry. I have with me the Trio eyeshadows 700 – The Purple Trio, 712 – The Grey Trio and 714 – The Brown Trio. I have mixed reviews for this one as some individual diamond eyeshadows were very pigmented and these Trios have medium pigmentation. You can give it more pop or more pigmentation by adding a white eyeshadow base before applying this eyeshadow. This way your eyeshadow will so much up in a much better way with more pigmentation.

Overall Opinion :
Paese eyeshadows have medium to good pigmentation. I suggest you to try the eyeshadows before you purchase them. I loved the Soft Matt Eyeshadows and they were really good. I had a makeover too with Paese cosmetics, using all their products. The eyeshadows lasted the entire day and were easily blendable with good pigmentation. Moreover, their products are good on our pockets and quite affordable.

Price :
Soft Matt Eyeshadows – AED 35
Diamond Eyeshadows – AED 39
