Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Gone are those days when eyeshadow application appeared tricky to me. Probably, I’ve now watched so many YouTube tutorials that I presume eyeshadows as crayons and my eyelids as a canvas wherein I can bring colors to life. On a usual office day, I would still think of emphasizing my crease line or the outer-v, without which my eyes appear hooded for some reason. Be it intricate smoky eye or mere single colour eyeshadow look, I just seek excuses for picking some or the other eyeshadow palette!
Today, I’d like to cater you with my take on Nykaa’s Just Wink Eyeshadow Palette “Crazy in Love’. I received this during one of the events held by Nykaa and this is one of the products that they gave to all the bloggers present there. If you’re following me on Instagram, you might know what all was in that goodie bag. So without more delays, let’s begin with the review -

These palettes come in a plastic-black casing, the lid of which is transparent so that you can see all the shades that are present inside. The striking part about the packaging is the fact that the palette has a magnetic closure which makes it look and feel top notch! Unlike other palettes, this one is quite compact and perfect if you’re planning to take it out with you while travelling. Unfortunately, it lacks a mirror and the applicator which you’d find inside is the q-tip variant. These applicators are really of no use and probably a brush would have been better.
For patting eyeshadow onto my eyelids, I tend to use my fingers than any sort of brush. The texture of these eyeshadows is quite soft and blending has never been an issue. Also, the colour intensifies as soon as you wet the eyeshadow. All the shades have slightly shiny finish to it. You can see small flakes of glitter inside and none of the shades are matte completely.
The pigmentation of these eyeshadows is pretty good, I feel. You would not require a lot of the colour for creating the desired look. A little colour does its job well. One thing that I want to personally add, all eyeshadows generally give intensified colour pigmentation once they are dampened. There’s nothing drastically different in this case but the brand used this hack smartly for marketing this product.
The longevity of these eyeshadow is pretty average and nothing something miraculous. I’ve seen it so many times, especially with the initial three shades that they don’t really last long and keeps on fading as the time goes by. If you’re planning to use this eyeshadow, make sure to prep the base with an eyeshadow primer otherwise the fading would definitely happen in few hours or so.
