I was recently send the whole collection of C.A.L cosmetics , it’s a newly launched cosmetic brand from India with varied range of products.  I did a video on my Youtube channel using just these products (watch the video here)

Talking about the whole range of face products. I am really impressed with the primer , it’s a transparent semi liquid consistency type of product and once you warm it up in between your fingers and massage it in between the pore ranging area , you can actually see decreasing pores and makes the skin little soft for the other base makeup to glide in.
About the foundation (it was little lighter , as you can see it in my video) but the texture is thick. I had to work in portions because the product sets in and dry way to fast. I am not really happy with the shade range of the base makeup , because every product works in between (very fair-to fair) cancelling out the major masses. It would be really great if they work something out with the shade range specially with their base products because the foundation stayed on really for a long time (I think , the primer helped in a little) and the coverage was really high. Talking about the chiselled corrector wheel , I really like their contour shade colour. It’s perfect and blend it perfectly. Even the glamoflauge concealer , does a great job. My personal favourite of all is perfect finish compact powder. It is super matte , helps in setting the cream products and the best of all it has yellow undertone to it. One thing I really like about the base make up range is – they give really good coverage , call it foundation , compact or the concealer. I am not really happy with the sculpt blush , it’s not really pigmented. You have to dive in your brush or the applicator to get the desired flush on your cheeks. Though they have good shade range , but you have to layer it on in order to get the product visible.

-C.A.L Los Angeles Angelic eyeshadow palette (04 bold) – (you can buy it here , in discount)
-C.A.L Los angeles Instabeam complexion enhancer highlighter (golden feather) – (you can buy it here , in discount)
The shades of this eyeshadow is super cute , it reminds of barbie phase we girls go through (in childhood probably). It’s pink , shimmery and highlighting. You get three variants of pink in the palette of four (goes from dark – semi matte to light pink in shimmer) and one highlighting shade in white. This palette is perfect for festive season , and if you are not good at applying more than one eyeshadow for eye makeup , swipe in any of the pink shade and you are good to go . I didn’t experienced any major fall out , pigmentation of each colour is quite decent. Somehow the white eye shadow was more creamy in texture (rather than being powdery) because all the other pink shades were in compressed powder form . The darker shades has more pigment , while the lightest shade goes more shimmery (but that should not be a problem , I am being more critical here over the shades to be honest) . I created the shimmery pink eye shadow look for the festive season and absolutely loved it. If you have pigmented lids , make sure you neutralize that with concealer before moving on with the shadows.
Talking about the instabeam complexion enhancer highlighter, it’s semi liquid in golden. It’s shimmery and the color will suit all the skin tone. Layering the product will give you the desired highlighted (glow from within) look. The applicator works really while applying over the cupid’s bow.

Lip products
-Intense matte and demi matte (you can buy it here , in discount)
One word only – LOVE. I really loved their lipstick range. From quality , to the packaging , to the shade range and price. I am really in love with their shade called (nutmeg) from their perfect pout range. It is this beautiful nudish brown shade , perfect to all the skin tone (from fair to darker skin tone) even their intense matte range is really good. Staying power is really good , also make sure with load in with lip balms before you apply the matte lipstick but over all their lipstick collection is really gorgeous.

Over all I really like their products , it’s decent , affordable , easily available , not animals tested and vegan. I really hope they work on shade range in their base products (because I really liked their foundation and concealer) , and we are the country of varied colored people. I have immense love for their lipstick collection , it’s beautiful. Over all the product is really good, will definitely buy them again.
