Monave Mineral cosmetics- review, swatches & photos (Part I)


Hi beautiful ladies,

I
hope you all are fine and have a great weekend. I;m sorry for the lack of posts but due to some reasons couldn’t be regular the previous week.
So today I’ m going to show
some stuffs from well known mineral makeup brand Monave. They had sent
me some products in which I’ll show you some products which can help in increasing the beauty of your eyes.

Monave mineral versatile powders Eye Shadows

They
had asked me to select some shade from their range. I selected two
shades from their mineral versatile powders eye shadow. The first in
Desert Sun and the second in Gold Brick.

Weight & price

Full size jar- $ 7.50

Texture

The texture is smooth and silky with full sparkles. They blend nicely on the lids. 


Shade

The
Desert Sun is a shade of between red and maroon with shimmers. It’s
looks beautiful after applying for some special occasions. The other one
Gold Brick orangery gold which is perfect for the middle portion of the
lid and brow bone with any other color shadow.

In the mirror of my own experience

Usually
I don’t like shimmery shadow but sometimes they look beautiful on the
eyes especially on festival or marriage functions. I applied them on
some festival occasions and they looked beautiful on my eyes. The
texture is very nice for blending. I applied them first without base but
they started to fade after some hours.With a base they lasted long. So
for special occasion these shadows are great & look gorgeous.

Finally….

Over
all these are great for any special day when you want some sparkle on
your eyes. No doubt they look beautiful after applying, I also love the
way they blend on the eyes so if you are an eye makeup lover, you should
surely check out these mineral shadows!

Stackable Cream to Powders

I also selected a cream to powder in Deep Plum.

What Monave says…

For women on the go. No more messy powders spilling in your purse.
Liner, brow color, blush, and lip color, neatly stacked in clear pots.

 Weight & price

The package of 3 jars  $ 35

Shade 

I chose in the shade of Deep Plum which is a dark plum shade.

Texture 

The texture is not much smooth. It feels dry and hardly apply on the areas, I want to apply. 

In the mirror of my own experience

At first I
couldn’t know about its use. When I opened it I thought it’s a primer or
base something like Mac Paint pout. When I used it as this purpose it
didn’t work then I read Monave’s description  and then applied it as
brow color and it worked well on this area. In the description they
claimed it to apply on the lips, cheeks and eyes as eyeliner but I’m not
agree with this because the texture is not soft to be apply on lips and
cheek. I can’t use it as eyeliner because it hardly applied on my eyes
but yes, for brow it’s really good. The lasting powder is great. If you
apply it on your brow, it can last even for a whole day so staying power
is impressive.

Finally….

Finally I’m
not impressed about this product because it didn’t work as a multi
purpose product as Monave has claimed. It only works as a brow color.

Eye Liners 

I selected a
couple of eyeliners too. I wanted a white one but this shade was not
available that time so I chose two other shades.

What Monave says…

Monave eye liners are handcrafted with
natural plant products and our signature mineral blends. The base of
jojoba and natural waxes yields a wonderfully creamy texture that wears
all day without smudging. No more pulling on the lids to spread the
color.

Weight & price 

5 gram $ 11.50

Shades

 The first is in Deep Sea and the other in Smoky Blue. 

 

Texture

The texture is not soft at all. Both are hard to apply as eyeliners especially the Deep Sea one.

In the mirror of my own experience

I chose these
liners after reading their claim to be a wonderfully creamy texture but
after applying I was deeply disappointed because the texture is not
creamy at all. So dry for applying on the eyes as eyeliner. When I
applied them on my hands they seemed to be okay but too hard and dry to
be applying on my lids. They are not pigmented at all so these are some
disappointed products which didn’t work for me.

Finally….

Both eye liners are too hard and dry in applying as eye liners. I’m very disappointed after using them.

Brush

 I was sent a brush too and I love this brush. 

In the mirror of my own experience

The bristles are very soft and great for filling brow color and applying shadow on the edges of eyes. 

Finally

Great product which works well on the eyes and the brow as well. I love it.
