The launch of Bollywood Professional at MUSE by Watsons

Being dark skinned I've always had my share of problems when buying cosmetics at a certain places. Mainly because their colors are too bright or just too light to go along with my skin colour & tone. Hence, when I received the invite for the launching of Bollywood Professional at the MUSE by Watsons, I was kinda excited and was hoping to find something that can suite my complexion. 

The wide range of cosmetics offered by Bollywood Professional

Bollywood Professional is the number one cosmetics brand used by Bollywood's top makeup artists for their Bollywood superstars. That means the makeup that you see on the actresses in the numerous Bollywood  movies are from this cosmetic brand ! They always seem to have that wonderful radiant, glowing skin, luscious lips, sexy eyes that makes them very vibrant & glamourous.  The secret is finally out and we get to be part of it. 

There were few make up artist to help you out with the products. Some of them will concentrate on your eyes, or your face and some will help you choose the right colours for your lips. I got to do my eyes first. 

I decided to let the make up artist choose the colours for me....... the only rule was, I didnt want it to look too dramatic. She chuckled & said not to worry... I'll go with your saree colour. That sounds about right I felt :)

Botanical shadow Primer

Just before using the eye shadow, she recommended the Botanical Shadow Primer. She used a very small amount of it and applied evenly over the upper eye area. Im very particular when it comes to my eyes cause Im allergic to some products. Sometimes it causes severe itchiness or my eyes starts watering..... yeah I know.... thats such a pain at times. But this primer did not give me any of those problems and Im glad. 

The benefits of this primer you may ask ?! 

- it primes your eyes for a smooth, long lasting eye shadow application
- evens the eyelid color and texture
   Now this I really need ! Cause I dont think I have an even texture on my upper eye area.
- botanically infused to soothe the delicate eye area 
- it has vitamin E !
- it has chamomile & aloe that helps to moisture the area 

Following which she combined a few eye shadows to match my bright pink & purple saree. The color did complement the saree colour.

Just before I got my face done, I was intoduced to Rani Birring !! She is the managing director of Bollywood Professional, born and brought up in England, and a professional make up artist. She is well versed with her knowledge of the beauty industry and its differing markets around the world... and she knew we Malaysians will be overwhelmed if products like this reached our shores.... and indeed it did.... dont you all think ! 

Tinted Primer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 

She herself saw my skin tone and recommended the tinted primer broad spectrum SPF 20 medium color to the make up artist.... And i agreed. Im sure she knows better. For me, I dont want the foundation to be too thick, or something that will be make me too fair. There is nothing wrong being dark skinned...... you just need a primer/ foundation that complements your skin tone.

I love the look..... what it did to me was it hid all my pores and gave me a smooth complexion. You can wear the primer alone or under the foundation. I was quite happy with the primer alone so I skipped the foundation.

Next stop is the Lipstick ! They have 12 beautiful colours in their Liquid Lipstick range. The colours are very bold and bright. My personal best is Pumpkin Spice, Electric Coral, Electric Taffy and Electric Pink !! These lipsticks are very creamy without the sticky feeling. Plus they are long lasting.... so we dont have to apply over and over again !! I would pick the lipsticks as one of my personal favorites here :) The other advantage of using these would be giving your lips the extra hydration that they need.

The way you decide on quality when it comes to buying lipstick is by the pigments.  When you put it on your skin, how much color is in it. These Bollywood Professional liquid lipstick are high in pigment and you can actually see the difference when you use them.

Now where can you get them ?!
