Whenever I’m free, I love looking through the Amazon website as it has a trove of offbeat and interesting makeup products and brands. During one such exploration, I came across the makeup products by ADS. ADS eyeshadow palette was my very first makeup I bought on my own, so it holds a special place in my memory.
I’m not recommending these products as I haven’t used this. This list is just some of the products I found to be interesting and affordable, specifically, each of them cost less than Rs.500/-. It could be the shades in the palette, the packaging or the product itself. The packaging of most of these products reminds me of the Balm cosmetics.
#1. ADS BALMSAI 18 Colors Eyeshadow and Brow Palette with Shaping Stencils
This makeup palette comes with 18 eyeshadow shades and 1 eyebrow shaping stencil. There are 6 basic shades, 6 brighter shades, 3 brown shades and 3 dark shades that can be used wet as well. My favorite shade in this palette is ‘Dig It’, a dark eggplant shade.
You can check out this palette here.
#2. ADS Manizer Sisters Luminizers Blusher Palette
This luminizer palette is a great option for those trying their hand at strobing. The three shades in this palette will suit most of the Indian complexion.
#3. The Balm Story
Known simply as ‘The Balm Story’, this product looks like a matte bronzer. The darkest shade in this palette looks dark enough for contouring.
#4. ADS Balm Jovi Rockstar Face Palette
Don’t know how good this makeup palette but the palette name is awesome. The palette has 12 eyeshadow shades, 1 blusher, 1 compact and 2 lipstick shades. The shade names are pretty cool and are based on the heavy metal bands. My favorite shade in this palette is ‘Lead Zeppelin’ (See what I mean).
#5. ADS How 'bout Them Apples Cheek and Lip Cream Palette
The packaging is so cheeky and cute. Seriously! There are 6 shades and each of them are named after an apple dessert. It is a mix of lip cream/lipstick and blushers.
#6. The Balm Story
This has to be the dullest in this list as the cover is not displayed. However, the shade names like ‘Hot Mama’ and ‘Çabana Boy’ gives me hope J This palette appears to contain eyeshadows, blushers, lip creams, bronzers as well as highlighters, though only eyeshadows are mentioned in the description.
#7. ADS Nude Volume 2 Eyeshadow Palette
This is yet another cheeky looking palette and am loving the shade name and the packaging. My favorite shades happen to be ‘Flirty’ and ‘Fiesty’ [wink..wink]
#8. Nude Tude Eyeshadow Palette
This is like the girl version of the above eyeshadow palette and has similar shade name.
#9. ADS Peel Off Lip Gloss Lipstick (set of 6) in Natural Fruit Essence
I have been seeing similar peel off lip products lately and I believe they call it ‘Lip Tattoo’.
#10. ADS Ultimate Concealer Contour Powder Palette
We have reached the last item on the list. It might not be the most interesting one but it sure is affordable. This palette contains 15 shades of cream and powder products that might be useful for contouring and highlighting. I’m sure at least 1 or 2 of these shades would match most complexions.
