A must have palette , ChriXtina Rocca – Beautiful you !

Hello everyone, hope you’re all having a fabulous day ! Summers are officially here , and its time for us to shine bright ! Its just not the glow on the face, also with bright , pastels, floral colors . Doesn’t it sound exciting ??? Well, I do…

Today, I’m reviewing a beautiful silky eye shadow palette by the brand called ” chriXtina Rocca “. For 12 ,  brightly pigmented shadows , you can find  no better value or quality than  this palette. The colors in this palette are so much fun! They’re all bright and very pigmented. That being said you can’t  really create a full look using this palette. There aren’t any neutrals to use as a crease color or a transition color , so you might need to dip into another palette to get the complete look. That being said it’s still beautiful and I love playing with bold colors, and this palette is packed with twelve  popping shades, so you  can  create dramatic looks with just one palette.

TEXTURE, PIGMENTATION & COLOR PAYOFF :

  • This palette is amazingly pigmented. As you can see from the above picture, it is loaded with a pretty good selection of blues & purples, berry and some dark chocolates, for the smokey look as well. 
  • I didn’t find any of the colors applying streaky or chalky, and they were picked up by my synthetic brushes  which was good. The color applies as it is, depositing the maximum pigmentation in just one stroke. Few colors may tend to crease at the bottom, but that’s acceptable. 
  • The payoff was just insane ! The color on my oily lids with a base stood for about 6 hrs straight , making this palette worth every penny.

 

FUN LOOK I CREATED USING THIS PALETTE:

I have used 3 different shades on the crease & on the overall lid.

Eye shadow palette , eyeliner, eye brow pencil & Powder from ChriXtina Rocca.

As you can see, even on the bottom of my lash line, the purple shade shows up very well. what else do you need, when a color brightens your overall look. Agreed !

Hey, wait… its not the end ! I also loved using their  Eyebrow powders, Liquid eyeliner and Brow pencil.

EYE LINER : 

 Lining and defining eyes has never been easier! Built with a uniquely thin and tapered felt-tip applicator, this  gives you careful control over subtle strokes and bold lines. Create winning looks with this rich, matte black finish that won’t smudge, flake, or take forever to dry. Cool and compact, this eyeliner  fits everywhere.

EYE BROW POWDER & PENCIL :

Soft powder that can be used on the eyebrows to fill the sparse areas and make them look more thick and even. Long lasting formula feels lightweight and comfortable on the eyebrows , yet is easy to remove; Ultra soft applicator for precise application; Fade and smudge, transfer and water proof so the brows stay fixed all day and all night …

This powder adheres to my skin and fills in my eyebrows completely and the color blends seamlessly for a natural, full appearance. The product lasted all day long, without having to reapply, and it didn’t smudge or feather.

These days, eyebrow definition is always at top hierarchy. This waterproof pencil defines the eye brow, and accentuate the arch just like that! Waterproof and comes in a range of colors. 

Overall, I’m really impressed with this amazing brand. They have a good quality , no harmful ingredients, easy to blend and work with it and most important – its highly affordable. 

These products are available at @Xpressionsstyle , @Carrefour UAE

Seeing the palette, you might think of Halloween, but certainly not ! They are not around the corner, but who says that ? it can be used at any time of the  year.  This year the most beautiful design definitely wins Misslyn Cosmetics with the Deadly Beautiful series! A design with the theme  flowers, skulls and even the products rather extraordinary nuances, yes admitted, that cries after me or? That’s why I had to put them to the test!

There are two pallets, mixed with eye shadow, highlighters, rouge and eyebrow products. The pallets have a nice matte paper wrapping! The mirror is especially beautiful when the pallets are opened.

How Gorgeous the packaging is !
The Deadly Beautiful range has lovely range from Cool blue, Cool Grey, Turquoise , and Expressive Purple.  The palette itself contains shimmering eye shadow shades. I sighed them first without base, but the color when swatches was amazing. The pigmentation was amazing and I had a happy feeling of ” Yes, I can blend them well “.

The Peach Blush and the highlighters are the best combo ever. Seriously it solves the dual purpose. If you need a highlighter on your face, and to the brow bone, this is it ! Its right there at just one place.

Karaja Touche Pastel Blush Review

Hi Beauties,

I have never had the chance to try the Karaja Cosmetics before although I have been seeing their kiosk frequently, whenever I visit Lifestyle stores, Sahara Center. And when I had the chance to try their products, their eyebrow definer pencil and their Lash Lift Mascara was my absolute favorite.

Slowly, after many uses, I got hooked up to their wonder box eye shadow palette, which is quite good in pigmentation and wear ability. And today I have come up with their, duo Blush palette.

Although I am not a fan of blush, this one grabs my attention because of its subtle colour , making it perfect for the hot summers in UAE.

So, let’s start reading more about it.

FullSizeRender

Packaging: The blush comes in a Silver colored cardboard box with the name written on it. And that gives a nice touch to the packaging.

The blush comes in a glossy black square shaped pan, with a flip open. And it has got 2 different colors. A Lighter shade of pink and a darker peach. Both the colors are too cool for summer and they suit well for all the skin tones. It has a nice brush too.

IMG_9462
The Duo Blush with the little Brush

Texture & Pigmentation: The texture of the palette is powdery. It lies somewhere between a satin and powdery finish. The pink and the dark peach have been finely milled and it doesn’t have any glitters in it, which is a big plus for me.

The Pigmentation is pretty decent. The colour is able to build up, so blending is important the right amount of colour, if not ending up in too much of colour on the cheeks.

Swatch of the Duo blush

Why I prefer? I absolutely love the colour of the blush. They are light, soft and can be used on a daily basis even for office wear. It gives a nice subtle glow and lovely tint of colour on your cheeks. I swirl the little brush in both the colors and apply it gently on my cheeks. Sometimes I prefer to use as two different blushes.

It stays good for about 4-5 hours maximum and then starts to fade. Since the product is quite pigmented, you do not need a lot of product. I would recommend using it small amount and building it up afterwards as per need.

I am not a blush junkie, but this is certainly special to me. I absolutely love the colors.

Will I Repurchase? Yes

My Rating? 4.5/5

Have you used this  before ? Are you aware of this Italian Brand ? Do let me know your thoughts too !

Until next post
