Today I will be trying to recreate the Laila look that Sunny Leone wore for the movie Raees. I loved her in that song and hopefully I did justice to her look 🙂

For the eyes: I used the NYX Avant Pop palette for this ( Read review Here). I used the Benefit Stay don’t stray eyeshadow primer and a white matte shadow using eye pencil on top of this so that the colours would be brighter. I went with a dark brown eyeshadow on the crease and outer corner. I also applied a dark blue eyeshadow on the outer corners to make it darker. Next I went on with one of my favourite shade which is a shimmery aqua shade and using my finger applied it all over my eyelids.

Products for the face :
L.A girl pro conceal orange corrector under the eyes.
Maybelline Fit me matte and poreless foundation in the shade 220 mixed with Loreal Paris magic lumi primer to give it a glow.
Rimmel London stay matte pressed powder in translucent
For contouring :
L.A girl pro conceal in the shade Toast on the cheeks , forehead and sides of my nose.
Went on top with Sleek makeup face contour kit in the shade dark.
Loreal Paris true match concealer in the shade medium to highlight around the contour areas
For blush , I went with Tarte Amazonian clay 12 hr blush in Rosy Nude
For highlighter, I used the Mary Lou Manizer
Upper lash line. : I applied Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil in Zero on my upper lash line. I made a small wing using the Eyeko skinny liquid liner.
Lower lash line : I used the same urban decay liner. Then I applied the dark blue eyeshadow on top of it.
Now for the glitter part 🙂 Using the NYX liquid crystal liner in Crystal Aqua, I applied it all over my eyelid. Then i went ahead and blended all the colours together. I also applied the glitter on the inner corner of my eyes. I applied Maybelline Lash sensational waterproof mascara on my upper lashes and Clinique bottom lash mascara for my lower lashes. Then I used the Ardell Glamour Wispies black lash extensions and this completed my eye look 🙂

I filled my brows using the Colourpop Brow pencil. I really love it and planning to do a review on it soon.
For lips, Sunny had used a neutral colour with lot of gloss. So I lined and filled my lips with Rimmel lip pencil in nude and went on top with Victoria’s secret’s beauty rush gloss.
I felt I needed more glow to complete this look so I took the Bare Minerals powder shimmery blush in Beauty and brushed it on my cheekbone and a little on the sides of my forehead.
I tried my best to use the similar kind of accessories needed for this look.
Here is the final version.

Hellos Beauties,

Recently Nykaa introduced the NYX Avant Pop eyeshadow palettes which makes your eyes pop. 6 matte shades, 3 gorgeous satin finish shades and one beautiful highlighter shade, well what else do you need in a eyeshadow palette? I have the ‘Surreal My Heart‘ in this category and I am quite impressed.

Let’s take a moment and see how gorgeous some of these shades are 🙂

You get 10 eye shadows of around 2.83 gms each and all of them are so Opaque except for shade 9.

Shade 2 and 6 are the most unique shades in this palette. 2 is a bright mint yellow but not ‘on your face’ bright and  6 is a shimmery grey colour.

Shade 3 which is a sea blue pastel colour and shade 7 which is a gorgeous blue, are the stars of this palette :). Both have a satin creamy texture and can brighten up any look.

Shade 4 brown and 5 mauve are good for the crease. Shade 1 looks amazing as a brow highlighter and I use shade 10 to get a matte liner look.

Price : Rs 1500

Ingredients :

All Shades Except Matte Black: Talc, Polymethyl Methacrylate, Kaolin, Lauroyl Lysine, Trimethylsiloxyphenyl Dimethicone, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Zinc Stearate, Dimethicone, Isostearyl Isostearate, Alumina, Quartz, Tocopheryl Acetate, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol.

May Contain: Mica, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, 77499), Black 2 (CI 77266).

Now let us look at the YAY and NAY points for this palette.

YAY

-> Very pigmented with and without primer.

-> Long lasting

-> Unique colours

-> Blends easily

-> Sleek plastic packaging, hence travel friendly

NAY

-> Very Pricey.  I agree the quantity is much more than the other eyeshadow palettes have, but it’s not of much use.

-> No mirror included.

> Fallout, though it is very minimal and can be easily swiped off with a brush.

Without Primer

So my verdict for this one. I would say 3.5/5 mainly coz for the NYX brand, it seems to be pricey. I love everything else about it :).

Hope this review is of some help to you girls 🙂

 

Until Next Time,

XOXO,
