PRIMARY BENEFITS OF MOTIVES® PRESSED EYE SHADOW

WHAT MAKES MOTIVES® PRESSED EYE SHADOW UNIQUE?
Ultra smooth and luxurious, these eye shadows are crease-proof and deflect the light away from fine lines to help visibly reduce the signs of aging for a bright, polished look. The Motives Pressed Eye Shadows have impeccable color retention that does not run or crease so you always look your best. They glide on ultra smooth with incredible hold, a flawless look, and a luxurious feel and finish. Take the guesswork out of looking gorgeous. The Motives Pressed Eye Shadow promises to give you the long lasting, high color look you have always wanted.

PRICE
$ 12.00
You can buy it online from Motives Cosmetics.

MY OPINION
The eye shadows come in an array of exquisite colours. They are very pigmented and do not crease at all even without an eye primer. They give a smooth, satiny finish and it is very easy to blend them. I love their packaging, it is so sleek and can be easily carried around. These eyeshadows bring out the best in you, in both day and night time. The light shimmer in them reflects so beautifully in the light. Plus, they last very long. The only con I find is that they are not available in Pakistan.

HEIRESS (Pearlized)


It is a frosty light pink. Sadly, inspite of the sturdy bubble wrapped packing it came in, this eye shadow got damaged. It gives a very glamorous look if used at night. I’d like to skip this eyeshadow for the daytime as it is a li’l too glittery. In my opinion, it makes more awesome of a highlight than an eye shade. This particular eyeshadow also has a slight fallout.

RATING

STUDIO 54 (Shimmer)


A very beautiful shimmery lavender, this shade is my love. Unfortunately, in my hasty excitement, I plunged my own finger into the eyeshadow :( Perfect for both night and day time I feel like a princess wearing it. :P

MY OPINION
I got the Motives Lustrafy Mascara in Black Out. This is certainly a magical mascara in defining my non-existent lashes. I applied this mascara and I was like WOW. It lengthened my lashes and gave them volume. What I like best is that without using a lash curler, it significantly curls my lashes. While applying I had to be a little cautious as its formula is a little wet and it smears otherwise. But after that I did not see any clumping or smudging at all. The wand gives you a hold on each and every lash. And the mascara lasts as long as you don’t wash your face. Personally, for daily routine I prefer non-waterproof mascaras over waterproof ones. I don’t like going through the ordeal of rubbing mascaras off daily. I'd say this mascara is MUST and does what it claims.

See what a 
noticeable difference this mascara makes in my lashes with only one coat. I LOVE IT!
