Yes it is really called Makhmali eyeshadow palette! And no, it is not made by an Indian brand. In fact this palette is manufactured by a company called Danni and the location is China.
The palette was sent over to me by the very nice folks at Born Pretty Store for review and after testing it, I can tell you that 'makhmali' is actually an apt name for it. These shadows are very smooth and soft and the pigmentation is extremely good! Honestly, I wasn't really expecting a lot out of this palette but it sure has surprised me. To all those who are not aware, Born Pretty Store is an international online store from where you can buy good quality makeup, makeup brushes, nail polishes, nail art supplies, jewelry, accessories etc at extremely reasonable prices. Shipping is free worldwide and I've never faced any problem with lost packages. Once you check out the website, you will be spoilt for choice as they have a huge stock of products and for any makeup addict, the eyeshadow selection is definitely worth checking out.
The Danni Makhmali palette consists of 15 colors in a shimmer/metallic finish and they are all quite bright, perfect for trying out some fun eye looks. The packaging is simple yet compact and I like that they have provided a large mirror inside. As is the case with most palettes, the brush is useless.
In terms of quality, like I said earlier I wasn't expecting either the texture or the pigmentation to be this good. The shadows are very soft and smooth to the extent that they crumbled slightly when I was swatching them with my fingers. When applying with a brush, there is slight fall out and my cheeks become all shimmery so now I remember to put a tissue under my eyes while applying these colors. Pigmentation is really good specially of the darker colors and in the pics below, I've just swiped the colors twice. Because the shadows are so soft and smooth, its pretty easy to blend them and you don't really need to put in a lot of effort in that. Wear time is not that great though and I would recommend using a primer first before applying these shadows. I tested without a primer and after about six hours, did see that the color had faded slightly. Here are the swatches..
The price of the palette is $7.99 which is around Rs 490 and believe me at that price, the palette is awesome! It might be of a brand that is relatively unknown (at least to me) but that does not mean that they do not make good products. You can buy this palette at Born Pretty Store and you can also get 10% off while checking out by using the coupon code DDH10. I definitely recommend the site and also this palette if you are fond of eyeshadows.
Here, I've worn the light blue shadow from the palette and you can see how shimmery it is.
