Tali- Colour Compacts Review
Livia’s Summary: A fantastic little makeup case for those of us who do our makeup on the run. Personally I’m always on the lookout for products that reduces the amount of cosmetics I have to carry in my handbag and this is it. The colour combinations are fantastic in the compacts and they are easy to apply with the mirror provided. So if you are travelling or just in need of more handbag space make sure you check these compacts out.
Description: Each gorgeously illustrated compact contains a large mirror for ease of application, three moisturising lip glosses, one cream blush with added illuminator for no fuss on the go application, four long lasting powder eye shadows, one double sided lip brush and one double sided eye shadow brush.
Available:David Jones, selected Pharmacies.
Skin Type: Normal Skin.
Value for Money: It would be nice to buy perhaps to start a girl off on her journey to makeuphoodâ€¦ but personally I would not purchase it for myself. This is not a bad price for the amount of things in it.
Comments: It overall wasn’t a bad product. The mirror I felt could have been bigger as it had the whole inside cover to use. The blush was probably the thing which I like the most in this pack- though I don’t use blush much I couldn’t resist this one, it went on beautifully.
The lipsticks were creamy but very light and as such only tinted your lips and wore of excessively quickly. The eye shadows were given in a slightly strange colour combination I thought but wore ok during the day however it was noticeably diminished by the end of the day. Probably a good product to take with you if you are in a rush and can’t get all your individual favourites together to do a face on the run.
Skin Type: Dry Combination, Dehydrated Skin.
Value for Money: Definitely good value for money. I think it would make a nice bon voyage gift to give a friend.
Comments: First of all, how gorgeous is this packaging? The picture on the front immediately attracts you to this product. The convenient travel size makeup kit is perfect to take away with you. It has everything you need – a big mirror, nice eye shadows and lip-glosses. One thing I didn’t like for me personally were the brushes that are provided to apply the eye shadow. Using this little brush I found it difficult to apply properly and had to use something else. For me, this makeup kit is great for holidays but would probably not use it for everyday use.
Skin Type: Dry Combination Skin.
Value for Money: I would buy this product, as it’s handy to take away with you when travelling and quite well priced.
Comments: All of the colours in this compact “Morocco” were really nice. I especially loved the taupe eye shadows, one being matte and the other having some shimmer to it. I liked that the compact is very slim lined, which makes it easy to slip into your handbag. The compact contained a large mirror which made application easy and a double sided lip and shadow brush which was good for use with different shades. I also liked the cute packaging of the compact. One downside would be that the glosses in the compact were not very highly pigmented and did not last long. The cream blusher gave a beautiful natural glow to my cheeks.
Skin Type: Combination Sensitive Skin.
Value for Money: I think this compact is excellent value as you can pay this same amount for just one blusher or eye-colour set & I would definitely buy this product in the future.
Comments: I love the packaging of this combination of products as it fits easily into my bag yet contains all I need for touch-ups through the day & is also great for a weekend away without having to pack individual items. Each product has a good texture for easy application & staying-power without being heavy. The colours are versatile & I especially love the pink lip-colour (the middle one), which is one of the prettiest pinks I’ve used!
Skin Type:Oily Skin.
Value for Money: As I don’t not personally use cream blush and two of the lip colours would not suit me, I would not purchase this compact for myself. This is a good product for someone who would use all or most of the colours and would make an ideal gift, as it is well presented.
Comments: The eye shadows were great in this colour compact. They were soft and easy to apply. Also, the four eye shadow colors blended well together, giving a sexy, smokey look. When using the cream blush it is best to lightly pat on, because if you rub the product on too vigorously, it may take your foundation off.
Pros: Innovative, Handy.
Cons: Brushes may not be adequate.
