Attending a Shaadi , is as big a tension as getting married itself !

What do I wear , what do I buy , where do I get my hair done from , What makeup do I use , Will I end up looking like everyone else, Will I be able to walk in my saree and dance in my lehenga?

These are some of the questions that an average wedding attendee asks herself ( Average Wedding Attendee here being me :P) I Have been doing my own makeup for wedding s for about 5 years now , so by now I know what works and what doesn’t but what I see many people struggle with is makeup, because not everyone wants to spend on a makeup artist to do their makeup or spend on very expensive makeup for one time usage , you know what I mean? ( Whats up sonam Kapoor reference 😛 )

The following two eyeshadow palettes and the whole range really from Studiowest is quite cracking ( Studio west is westside’s inhouse makeup brand , they have two versions of it :

Pure Passion; with its lightweight textures, vibrant hues and flawless finishes encourages women to experiment with makeup and reinvent their look.

Maaya; with its gorgeous shimmer textures, dazzling hues, is perfect to add glamour to all your special occasion.

) .

I bought 2 Trios from the range , one being the nudes ( ‘Daytime Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette’)  and the other one contains the brights ( ‘Bombay Jewels Eyeshadow Palette’ )  and the following is the breakdown :



  • Very Affordable ( Rs 395 for 3 colors )
  • Highly Pigmented
  • Great Color Payoff
  • Very Nice color combinations in the trios
  • Works really well with all indian skin tones
  • Compact and easy to carry
  • Lots of product ( Value for money as the eyeshadow pans are bigger )


  • Not as Long Lasting as I would like them to be ( Without Primer )
  • Some of the nudes look different in the pan and swatch different . ( The blush tones are almost silver on the eye lid which is weird)
  • Have a little Fallout
  • The Blue is slightly crumbly and is relatively chalky.
  • The Brush ( Sigh )



Go Buy them! They are perfect for the shaddi season! The color palettes are beautiful and because they are affordable you can buy more than one without burning a hole in your pocket 😛

My Favourite is the Mossy gold green in the Brights palette 😀 And I am Waiting to get my Hands on the ‘GoldMine’ Eyeshadow Palette’ Because I have a wedding to attend 🙂
