Hey, Beauties!! So While returning from my honeymoon I picked up several Thailand beauty & makeup products. I am not much into eyeshadows but when I saw this cute chocolate colored eyeshadow palette from Mistine with all the beautiful shades, I could not resist myself. Even drugstore brands like Maybelline and Lakme do not sell such an affordable neutral eyeshadow palette. I am obsessed with nude makeup and do not like very loud makeup. So when I saw the mistine eyeshadow palette, I thought to give it a try. I also got a mascara, a lip balm and a charcoal mask which I will be reviewing later.
As you can ascertain from its condition, I have been using it quite frequently ever since I got back. This will not be a very long review, Just the quality, pigmentation and swatches.
Price: 200 Baht( Around 400 in India)
Mistine is also available in Indonesia as I have gathered.
Packaging: Well the Mistine eyeshadow palette Nudy Brown comes in a chocolate brown cardboard box and inside the original palette is very cute. The palette looks like chocolate and the packaging resembles the urban decay naked eyeshadow palette. Though the Mistine eyeshadow palette is not as luxe looking like the Urban Decay one.
Shades: The shade names are displayed at the back of the box from Left to right in the order in which they are arranged within the box.
This is what the eyeshadow palette looks like from inside.
The palette has a mirror inside which is really useful and comes with an applicator.
However, only the sponge applicator is of any use, the other end is too hard and totally useless.
Paradise Sugar- It is pearly champagne eyeshadow with good pigmentation. It can be used as a great highlight color on the corner of the eyes or brow bone.
Dramatic Party- This is a very Pretty Light rose gold shade and would look great worn on the eyelids during the day.
Magic Dream- This is a beautiful classic Bronze gold shade that will look great with all your traditional Indian outfits or for festive evening or daytime looks.
Wonder Brown- Though this shade is named wonder brown but I find it more of a Khaki green. This is one of my favorite shades in the palette due to its versatility. It can be worn as a night glam lid color.
Beautiful Sparkles- Well This is again a beautiful shimmery rose gold shade which is a tad bit lighter than the shade Dramatic Party.
Creature Brown- This is a neutral taupe shade with subtle shimmers. love to wear this shade alone by just dipping my finger and applying it directly to my lids.
New York Midnight- This is the darkest shade in the palette. It is a charcoal grey kind of color with muted shimmers. It will work great with smokey eye looks.
Matt Brown- This is the only matte shade in the palette and It is a light brown shade. I use it a lot for my no makeup makeup eye looks like a nude eyeshadow.
Pigmentation & Staying Power- These eyeshadows have good pigmentation and they last for 3 to 4 hours easily on me without Primer. You can use your concealer as a primer too. For the price, I say these are of pretty good quality.
Definitely Pick it up if you are traveling to Thailand or Indonesia!!
