Vasanti Silky Eyeshadow Duo in Great Wall and Vegas Strip – Photos, Swatches, Review

Vasanti has 8 new Silky Eyeshadow Duos ($22 CAD) available. The shades are inspired by must-see destinations around the globe and compliment a large range of skin tones.  Pair up the duos or channel your inner makeup artist by mixing and matching the shades.  I have Great Wall and Vegas Strip to share with you today.

Great Wall includes pale peachy gold and a metallic taupe brown. The shades are really lovely neutrals that pair well together.  These shadows are a bit on the sheer side and will fade somewhat after several hours. I recommend using a good eyelid primer or using a neutral cream base to improve the wear of this duo.

Vegas Strip includes a nicely pigmented metallic mauve pink and a very sheer matte violet plum. The plum shade fades quite quickly so I recommend using a very good primer or a similar toned cream product as a base to amp up the vibrancy and longevity.

Vasanti Lip and Cheek Colour Pod (Yes I Said Pod!) in Strobe Light – Photos, Swatches, and Review

Vasanti Cosmetics has released several new products for the holiday season including these super cute Lip and Cheek Colour Pods ($24 CAD). I don’t think I have ever seen packaging like this. It is so fun and cute!


The formula is light and creamy. It has excellent pigmentation but has a lovely translucency to it. The formula contains hydrating and plumping ingredients like mango butter and pomegranate sterols as well as hyaluronic filling spheres. It feels wonderfully moisturizing and offers a beautiful glow to both lips and cheeks without noticeable shimmer. I love how this feels on the lips. It is almost like an incredibly pigmented tinted lip balm. On the cheeks I was surprised to discover it had no sticky feel and it’s translucency offered a very natural and skin like finish.


Strobe Light is a very vibrant pink that they describe as a cranberry pink. I actually find that once applied it takes on a bit more of a strawberry tone. It looks amazing on the lips and as a blush it is a very natural flushed hue. Just be careful to apply lightly or you will look like you just stepped out of the sauna or suffered some extremely traumatizing embarrassment!



The Lip and Cheek Colour Pod is also available in Natural Light, a nude pink and Candlelight, a cool peach. I am very interested to see how these more subtle shades look in this formula.

Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator Review

I received a generous sample of the Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator in my January 2012 Glymm Box. I was very excited to try it because I’ve long been intrigued by the two skincare products in the Vasanti Cosmetics lineup. I felt that if a company that is primarily a cosmetics company chooses to only have two skincare products available then those two products must be exceptional. I was right! I am in love with this facial cleanser and scrub. A small amount goes a long way and using the product the suggested 3 times per week my sample has gone a long way. My skin looks and feels amazingly soft and refined after using this product only a short time. I will absolutely be purchasing a full sized version of BrightenUp!
