Faces Sparkle Dust Stackables Sunbeam

Guest Review by Sktribal

You know, if I ever got to meet the people at Faces, I‘d ask them to rename “Sunbeam” to “Sunset”. Why, you ask? Well, when was the last time you watched the sunset? If you’ve done it enough times at enough places, you’d know how beautiful and uniquely colourful each sunset could be.  Even if you’re not one to observe the sunset every chance you get, you’d still have seen the red, pink, golden hues of different sunsets on postcards or even computer wallpapers. What do you get when you capture all the colours of the sunset and transform them into iridescent pigments? Why, Faces Sparkle Dust Stackable sunbeam, of course!’ (Editors Note: Dude, apart from sunset those look like the spices in my kitchen n!!!)

This set of pigments from Faces consists of gold, copper, shimmery white and even warm pink shades. I only bought these to be used as eye shadows but I’m guessing they can be used as nail paint (mixed with clear nail polish) and maybe, even as bronzers/highlighters for the face. The colours in this stack are pretty common and you can easily find dupes for them but the texture is something that stands out for me. They are so finely milled that when you apply them on your lids, they look like a single film of brilliant sheen. They don’t have the chunky monkey shimmer/glitter that some eye shadows do (*cough* coastal scents *cough*)  They last pretty well on my non-oily lids…pretty much the whole day with just Lakme soufflé as base. If you have oily lids you’d have to use these with a primer. The shades are vibrant and well pigmented and all the colours show up well on my pigmented lids.

Tip: To prevent the shimmer getting all over your face, turn the stack upside down till some of the powder collects on the lid. Then, swirl you brush on the lid a few times till the pigment sticks to the brush well. Now, pat the brush on the eyelids.  This will minimize fallout.
The pigments are all packed into little jars/tubs that can be screwed onto one another to form a long vertical column that can be stored upright on your vanity.
Here’s a description of the shades:

  1. White with silver shimmer
  2. Very pale gold
  3. Yellowish gold
  4. White with pink shimmer (Looks white in the pot but the pink shows up more prominently when swatched
  5. Warm brownish pink (with mauve undertones, maybe?)
  6. Neutral shimmery brown
  7. Warm bronzy gold
  8. Deep rich reddish copper

 

 

 

 

Review Verdict: A-
Price: Rs 699 for 11.2 gms

Final Recommendation: The Faces sparkle dust stackables in sunbeam is a beautiful set of 8 warm, metallic eye shadows that I personally love. With this stack, you can create warm neutral looks for everyday as well as dramatic metallic eyes for wedding and other events. At Rs 700 (less if bought online) for 8 shades it is a total bargain for the variety and quality it offers. I would recommend this to everyone 
