We have captured these elements in our collection in a manner that makes the colors and textures viable for everyday use as well as for special occasions.”
Cory Wallia shared his view on the looks created as part of the Fantasy collection, “The looks from the Fantasy Collection are international but adapted for the Indian woman. The colors and styles presented by us are suited for the Indian skin-tone. We have focused on glossy textures and color blocks inspired by nature.”
While talking about the collection, Amrit said, “My favourite product from the Fantasy collection is the Fantasy Shimmer liner as it adds a sparkle to the eyes while accentuating them perfectly.”
Sharing her beauty tips for the season, Lisa said, “Shimmer and colors like green and pink are in vogue this summer. I love how Clint has played with color for my look. The All Over Shimmer Gloss is a trendy new product that can be used to highlight the arms, shoulders or legs leaving them silky soft.”
“I love gold and bronze – with this collection I have beautiful golden and bronze shades in eye products like the Fairy Dust Eye Shadow or the Shadow Artist Shimmer Stick”, added Vipasha.
Shraddha who loves bright colors was very excited with her look, “I love eye makeup - Cory used the green from the Eye Quartet and the Shadow Artist Shimmer Stick to highlight my eyes beautifully.”
