Chic Makeup: Lakme’s Gypsy Collection (Part 2)

November 2, 2010

You can read the previous part of our review of Lakme’s Gyspy Collection here.

Eyes: Eye Quartet

Lakme Gypsy collection Eye Quartet eye shadows

Just one sweep of the Gypsy collection’s eye shadows is enough to make your eye lids sparkle. The two eye shadow palette has the right colours for the season: pink, purples, grey and bronzes. Most of the eye shadows have a gold shimmer, which are perfect for gold embroidery we will be wearing this Diwali and throughout the wedding season. Very, very trendy! And I love the names too: Silk Route and Tanjore Rush.

The only downside: the eye shadow tends to “break” easily.

Black Satin Kajal

Lakme’s Black Satin Kajal is indeed satiny, it just glides over your eye lid, doesn’t smudge too much and is dark as night. Word of caution: Handle with care! I dropped the pencil without the lid, and my heart broke when the point broke. 😦

Nail polish: True Wear Nail Color

I asked a friend to test the Gypsy collection’s nail polish. She headed to her neighbourhood salon for a pedicure, and asked them to apply the ruby red she was carrying. The pedicurist and the salon staff fell in love with the colour, said it was the right amount of shimmer, and they would be stocking up on the colour ASAP. 🙂

Other fab colours: Mystic indigo, henna gold, plush purple… awesome! Take a look:

Speaking Chic Verdict (entire collection): 4/5. Choose the colours to go with your wardrobe and you’re set to look gorgeous for the festivities!

    Have their plush purple on my hands and I really like that it isn’t too loud.

      Good. I didn’t think any of the nail colours were too loud.

      @Naz- They’re worth splurging on. 🙂 Another must buy is a good lipstick– it’s perfect for Indian skin tones.
