PAC All New Launches Review, Swatches
PAC launched a bunch of new things recently, and they are still launching more, hopefully you will see a Part 2 of this post real soon 🙂
Starting with the current launches which are already out on Amazon and PAC website. We have few new brushes, 3 eye shadow palettes, eye brow palette, diamond powders, eyelid primer, makeup setting spray, makeup removing wipes, few new eye lashes, new mascara and 8 new shades in the Retro Matte Gloss.
Now I don’t have the makeup removing wipes and the matte round neutral eye shadow palette, I would be reviewing and swatching those in Part 2.
Let’s start with the eyebrow palette..
- Designed to attain perfect brows
- 12 pans divided into half with different colour tones
- Powdery texture helps for perfect precision
MRP: Rs.1795/- (Buy HERE)
It has 11 pans with half and half colours and one of wax. You can mix and match and use any colour as per the colour of your hair and skin tone, and customize your perfect eye brow colour. I am not sure if the pans are sold individually because I couldn’t find it online, but all pans can be removed and carried along if required. This palette is perfect for you if you are a makeup artist, it even has blonde shades. However for individuals, I would recommend getting the single pan which I am sure they would retail soon or would be available in stores.
The shades which are absolutely perfect for Indian skin tones and which I recommend are Soft Brown, Auburn, Chocolate, Ash Brown and Dark Brown.
Here are the swatches..
Coming to the brushes, PAC has added 6 new brushes and a sharpener for their Concealer Crayons.
PAC Brush 255 – MRP: Rs.645/- (Buy HERE)
PAC Brush 256 – MRP: Rs.545 (Buy HERE)
They are duo fibre brushes for buffing, and are ideal for foundation and concealer respectively.
PAC Brush 353 – MRP: Rs.795/-
It’s a slanted kabuki brush, super dense and soft. The centre white portion is where you pump out the foundation and then start buffing, it gives a flawless foundation finish. Reminds me of Sigma F80, only that is flat.
PAC Brush 272 – MRP: Rs.595/- (Buy HERE)
PAC Brush 274 – MRP: Rs.595/- (Buy HERE)
PAC Brush 272 is a contouring brush, it blends your contour seamlessly even on the sides of the nose and jaw line. It would work best with cream contour. PAC Brush 274 is an eyeshadow blending brush, it is quite dense and broad, it would blend in your crease shadows quickly and seamlessly. But it is not ideal for detailing or darkening specific outer v as it covers a huge area. It is perfect for crease work.
PAC Brush 258 – MRP: Rs.675 (Buy HERE)
PAC Brush 258 is the perfect highlighting fan brush, you can highlight specific areas also such as cupid’s bow and top of eye brow, tip of nose, etc., because of it’s size. Love this brush!
Coming to my favourite – eye shadow palettes.
They had launched a 7 shades matte eyeshadow palette previously (Swatch HERE) and I absolutely loved it! This time they have launched three more which look fabulous – Matte, Spark and Sprinkle. I will be reviewing the Spark and Sprinkle.
PAC 7 Color Spark Eye Shadow Palette – MRP: Rs.1175/- (Buy HERE)
This palette has 6 shimmery shades in all metallic tones and one matte black shadow. It has ideal lid shades and is a perfect festive/party palette. You can also create metallic smokey eyes with black at the outer V or layering a metallic shadow all over black on the lid. There are numerous ways you can use this palette.
There is dull gold, yellow gold, copper, rose gold, taupe grey, champagne and matte black. All the shadows are highly pigmented and go on smoothly. These are best applied with fingers, you can neaten the edges up with a precision brush though.
Only con for me would be the shades 1 and 2, 3 and 4 look similar, especially on the eyes. I wish there was one true metallic pink and one deep bronze instead. But nonetheless it is still an amazing palette quality wise too.
PAC 9 Color Sprinkle Eye Shadow Palette- MRP: Rs.1395/- (Buy HERE)
- 9 shimmer shades
- Best to create both day and night looks
- Granulated particles make its texture very smooth and easy to blend
This is one gorgeous palette, I was stunned looking at the shades and pigmentation. It has 9 metallic/shimmer colourful shades. This palette covers all the shades and you can do a green smokey eye, blue smokey eye, burgundy, purple, gold, copper, all kinds of looks with this. This is the only palette you will need for Indian festive/wedding makeup apart from a few mattes for blending!
It has both warm neutrals like gold/copper/white and colours. We have white gold, copper, yellow gold, rose gold, dull gold, burgundy, lilac, blue and green. Lilac and blue are my absolute favourites.
This palette is a total value for money and an absolute must have!
All the swatches are just one swipe without any primer.
PAC Eye Lashes in No.49- MRP: Rs.175/-
These are lashes for lower lash line, I have never tried lower lashes before but would definitely give this a try. I am glad PAC is launching more styles and different kinds of eye lashes. I hope they launch an eyelash glue soon.
PAC Slim Slimmer Mascara- MRP: Rs.595/-
This is a two way mascara with a slim, slightly curved wand on one side for the top lashes and the slimmer, tiny wand for the lower lashes. I loved the lower lashes slimmer one, the slim top part is good for defining lashes but it doesn’t give me enough volume.
PAC Micro Finish Makeup Fixer- MRP: Rs.850/- (Buy HERE)
- Herbal and floral extracts in this makeup fixer
- Aero spray technology eliminates blotchy watermarks
- Beneficial vitamins protects skin & makes makeup last long
The spray in this is very fine and even, absolutely love the spray. It has herbal and floral extracts as claimed, ingredients have rosemary, lavender, peppermint, hibiscus, jasmine extracts, etc. It takes away all the powderiness from the face and makes the makeup stay longer. There are not enough makeup setting sprays in India and I do highly recommend this one.
PAC Canvas Shadow Primer – MRP: Rs.695/- (Buy HERE)
- Create a clean canvas for eye-shadow application
- Its lightweight and creamy
- Lasts long and enhances looks
It is a tinted eye primer, the tint helps in evening out eyelids and covering the veins, giving a clean canvas to work with. It is creamy and blends nicely, looks and feels like a concealer.
It definitely makes the eye shadows appear brighter and vivid and helps the eye shadows stay longer.
Here is a swatch without and with primer..
PAC Diamond Powders- MRP: Rs.745/- (Buy HERE)
- Granulated shimmer powder for Eyes
- Lightweight and has a smooth texture
- Add an extra sparkle to your everyday life
These are shimmery powders/pigments which can be used in multiple ways. They are launched in three shades – Cleopatra, Moon Dust and Crystal.
These are perfect too add shimmer on the eye lids at the centre, or used below the eyes for a music festival look (glitter tears) or mixed with a mixing liquid and used as an eyeliner on the crease for a cut crease look. Cleopatra is white gold, Moon Dust is silver and Crystal is copper gold. I would highly recommend the Crystal one for bridal makeup artists. It will add oomph to your Indian bridal makeup looks.
They have three holes at the centre and a sifter packaging, I just wish the sifter lid would have been a little tight, as it was coming out while I was taking off the tape. I hope they don’t spill or mess around.
These can be used as highlighters but the shimmer is quite chunky and would emphasize your texture, so I wouldn’t recommend using these on the face.
I also have 8 new shades added in the Retro Matte Gloss, I will do a separate post for those tomorrow as this post is already very image heavy and long.
Overall, I am loving all the new launches PAC is coming out with. The palettes and brushes are total value for money, PAC products come with a quality.
What is your favourite launch out of the lot?
