My relationship with make-up products goes back to my middle school days where experimenting with funky eye shadows was a ritual before stepping into a hot shower, in order to erase the master piece that I had created on my eyes. I often found simplicity to be more attractive on ones face rather than being caked up with too much make up! It’s said that eyes are often the windows to a person’s soul (quite poetic I know, but a good segway into what I would like to talk about today).
Prior to my introduction to the Indian markets, I lived in California for five years and I was so used to the brands there that once I got back to the motherland, the makeup really disappointed me. Unfortunately Luxola.com which happens to be South Asia’s largest make-up supplies website that ships their products worldwide without any custom duty or tax was not a big part of my life.
As I navigated through the website, I found the user interface a piece of cake. I have picked a couple of my favorite products from their eye make up collection, which you can view here. Over there I ordered a beautiful Sleek Make-Up eye shadow palette along with a Luscious Cosmetics primer/base. I received the products in appropriate packaging within six days and applying eye makeup has become a bliss ever since.
I have used both of these products for over a week and I am blown away by the quality of products Luxola.com offers due to its proper safety measures in terms of duplicate products, broken palettes, etc.
Sleek Make Up: Oh So Special – This eye shadow palette includes seven matte eye shadows and five shimmer eye shadows. They are well pigmented (as seen in the swatches below). The packaging is compact and minimal which is easy to carry around although the makeup applicator is not up to the mark at all. All in all, it is a great product at a very affordable price. You can purchase it here for Rs.1459.
Here are the swatches of the pigment from the palette.
Luscious Cosmetics – A primer/base is essential for effective use of an eye shadow. Creating an even base for the shadow makes the color pop and avoids creasing of the pigment. This product is worth every penny! I am a fan of this eye primer/base as it is affordable and tiny amount can go a long way! I use two small dots for each eye and the creamy texture is sufficient to create a smooth finish for the eye lid. It is very convenient to use and is also effective to hide blemishes as well. You can purchase it here for Rs. 1224.
Apart from their regular discounts all year round, Luxola.com has been kind enough to offer you a 15% discount on your first purchase using the coupon code BLX-LIVEMODISH during the check out! Offer is valid till 8th August, 2015.
