Glam is a way of life!
It’s hard to miss the shiny ad campaign MyGlamm Cosmetics has launched. I was intrigued when my favourite parenting group on Facebook, Mommy A-Z, ran a contest in collaboration with the brand. The contest was targeted specifically at busy working mothers, as evident from its #bossbabe tagline. I was fortunate enough to win, and here is my honest review. This post is not sponsored.
MyGlamm makeup has been developed in laboratories in Italy and Germany. It’s aimed at today’s busy, independent women who don’t compromise on their beauty regimes. The goods are described as “single-use products with new textures, precise applicators, and never seen before formats” to reduce make-up application time.
The artist at work
Their signature products include the Total Makeover FF Cream (primer, concealer, foundation, compact, SPF 30, skin tone correctors); Glow to Glamour powder (shimmer and fixing powder); Chisel It Palette (highlighter, blush, bronzer); All Eye Need Palette (primer, eye shadow, highlighter); Jet Set Eyes (kajal and eyeliner); Stay Defined Duo (brow powder and eyeliner); Color Fusion Lip Duo (plumping lipstick and plumping gloss); and Perfect Curves Lip Duo (lip liner and lipstick). Their makeup brushes/ applicators also serve more than one purpose.
The products contain organic extracts and antioxidants to improve skin texture over time. They are 100% cruelty-free, suit all skin types and are supposed to be long-wearing. The products are available on amazon as well as their website. They also offer reasonably priced makeover services. According to the make-up artist, charges for bridal makeup are INR 8000.
All the products
Once the winner of the contest was announced, I was contacted via email and an appointment was set at my convenience. I chose to get dolled up for my anniversary dinner date at Wasabi by Morimoto, Taj Mahal Hotel, Delhi (read my review here). The makeup artist, Chhaya Sharma (follow her work on Instagram here) came home, which was very convenient. Having studied at VLCC, she has been a freelance makeup artist for about two years.
Many Delhi-based makeup artists prefer to be heavy-handed with makeup. I didn’t want that and Chhaya stuck to my brief. She used MyGlamm products on me, with the exception of mascara and moisturizer, which were my own. The kajal was supposed to be a fantastic product but was out of stock, so I couldn’t test it.
With Chhaya Sharma- the makeup artist
The final look was a light gold smokey eye with a pop of purple underneath, and a bright fuschia matte lip. The foundation was too dry on my skin (despite applying moisturizer), and looked patchy in places. The eye makeup was pigmented and of good quality, as was the brow powder and eyeliner. Blush, bronzer and highlighter were all satisfactory in terms of application and longevity. The lipstick was pigmented and hydrating on the lips despite its matte formula, but did require a touch-up. Chhaya was good with her application techniques, and was quick and efficient. However, I honestly feel the makeup I do myself looks better on me.
Before and after the makeover
I’m a huge makeup enthusiast- I wear it daily and love creating different looks. I’ve tried a lot of makeup from different brands over the years, so I can confidently say that MyGlamm has good products, but not the best. They are very reasonably priced, and easy to throw in your purse. Buy this if saving cash is a priority, but if you’re looking for top-notch makeup I wouldn’t recommend this brand.
