As I was catching up on youtube a few days ago I noticed Eshani from Total Makeup Junkie 101 released a new video talking about her new makeup line, Rani Cosmetics!
I have been following Eshani on youtube for over a really long time now and not only love her videos, but I admire her as a person. She’s someone I can fully trust when it comes to honest reviews and facts about beauty products.
I was absolutely thrilled to hear that Rani Cosmetics initial launch was going to be a lipstick line, especially since her videos are the ones I rely on when looking for lip swatches and information on formulas.
This initial line is called the Sparked Dazzling Lipsticks and so far there are six stunning shades available. As the name suggests, these lipsticks have a shimmery finish. Seeing these was a trip down memory lane for me because I used to wear lipsticks just like these with my Indian outfits when I was younger!
Here’s a list of ingredients from their website:
Moreover, these products are vegan and cruelty free! Each shade costs $18 but if you’re looking to buy all six, there is a bundle available for $99 (a savings of $9!) right here! Also, Rani Cosmetics offers worldwide shipping!
I am in LOVE with the packaging! It’s something different and really makes the Indian side of me super happy! The henna print on the box along with this rose gold foil design on the lipstick tube is absolutely stunning! I also really love the hot pink foiled logo as well – all in all, the packaging is gorgeous and feels luxurious!
These are the six shades available! I am so thankful the sticker labels are the true colors of the shade – I wish more brands did this!
I can’t get over how stunning the packaging is along with the shades! These shades would look beautiful on every skin tone. The formula is really smooth and buildable. They aren’t patchy at all and you’ll be good to go with just one swipe!
Here are some quick swatches I did. I’ll definitely be leaning towards Tattoo, Lassi, and Syrup for the next few months and Latte, Bindi, and Eclipse towards the mid/end of the year! This photo does not do justice to the shimmer at all but it looks completely stunning in each shade in person! Moreover, each shade has a unique scent to it!
Here’s a description of each shade from their website:
My overall initial thoughts on the Sparked Dazzling Lipsticks are completely positive. I had really high hopes because of Eshani herself – from her videos she seems incredibly intelligent, has reviewed a vast amount of beauty products, and also seems like someone who would put a lot of thought and effort in something like this. And I think she totally did! From the packaging to the formula it’s obvious she put a lot of time and effort into creating these products.
I am really excited to see what’s next for Rani Cosmetics! What about you? Have you bought any of these shades or do you plan to?
