Active Cosmetics Glamour Radiance Compact

Hey Ladies,

Hope Everything is fine your end, Today I am going to share a New Cosmetic Product which hardly you might have heard of, Recently here there was a new counter opened in the Cosmetics Section, these products were sold on a good deal, so I thought of trying one of the palette. The Product is from Active Cosmetics, they are from Manchester UK.
Active Cosmetics : Glamour Radiance Compact

Contains: 18 Eye Shadows, 2 Bronzers , 2 Blushers & 3 Brush Applicators

Quantiy :15.3 g

About Active Cosmetics:

In 2001, in England the Active Cosmetics was founded. It steadily established itself within the England Cosmetics Manufacturer. In 2006 a new bronzing range, named Sun Kissed was introduced by ACTIVE Cosmetics. The Active Cosmetics brand offers a variety of Active Cosmetics including: Glamour Radiance, Active Sun Kissed Bronzing Pearls and Active Sun kissed Bronzer and other Discount Active Cosmetics.

Can be bought through Websites like Amazon, Fragrancedirect.co.uk or any counters if available.

Price  of this Particular Palette is : 5.5 RO (Rs 750 Approx)

My Opinion about the product:

Frankly speaking I haven’t used them on myself yet, since I have recently bought this. But I did swatched it in the mall and on my hand while doing this review, what I found was

Colors are really pigmented, but it would definitely need a proper base before applying these eye-shadows  The formula is non cakey, but some fall outs are expected. All the colors are super easy to blend, some does look glossy but actually there are no shimmers which I found really good. Most of the colors look similar when swatched on the hand. But I think may be I haven’t used any base underneath. The Staying Power overall is not bad too, This palette consists of both Neutrals and Pastels Shades which is good while travelling, It also comes in the a Matte Black , Sturdy Box which resembles a plastic case where in we keep our visiting cards but a little bigger in size. The detailed Ingredients and Quantity are mentioned behind the Box, which is really awesome.

The product has lots of variants like Sun kissed Bronzers, Highlighters, Glamour 88 Palettes, Eyebrow Kit , Eyelashes. All are available online in Fragrancedirect.co.uk or Amazon.com

Overall I am loving this product so far, I will soon do a Eye tutorial on this palette to ensure a proper understanding on the texture and shades.

The Top Line shades are mixture of Neutrals and pastels

The Middle Line Shades are a little darker version of the Top ones
The Bottom Line Shades are really Intense shades
Now ,The Blushers and Bronzers are all glossy and great texture but too light shades so i won’t be using these as intended but think of using them as a highlighter or blending the crease.

I really dint find the Brushes and the Applicators quite useful as they are the similar ones which we get in all the palettes

My Recommendation:

Yes , It’s a travel Friendly palette , Inexpensive, can be used by the beginners as well, Active Cosmetics is also known for their Lashes , so I think of soon buying the Lash and Eyebrow Palette.
