Miss Glitzy was introduced to Thevi Cosmetics a few weeks ago and the folks over in New York kindly provided some samples for Miss Glitzy to review.

Thevi is a new cosmetic brand that celebrate diverse ethnicity. The founder, Thevi Thambirajah is a Sri-Lankan in NY who could never find cosmetics in shades that suited her skin. Everyone can be pretty in Thevi because their cosmetics range is suitable for all skin colours. Miss Glitzy is pretty impressed by this concept, which is very relevant to multi-racial nations like Singapore and many South-East Asian countries.

Miss Glitzy received the Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation (US$22), High Impact Lipstick (US$13), Blush Brush (US$25), Sheer Matte Blush (US$16) and Triple Split Eyeshadow (US$15).  The products look pretty sleek and sophisticated. Everything except the brush is slim enough to fit into any cosmetic pouch.

Makeup with:
1) Thevi Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation in Sandy Beige
2) Sheer Matte Blush in Touch Plum
3) High Impact Lipstick in Plush
4) Triple split eyeshadow in Hemisphre

Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation

The shade is a little too dark and is more suitable for Miss Glitzy as a bronzer. The SPF 15 foundation blends and covers well as a concealer. Doesn’t clog up skin and not oily after a long 8-hour wear. Great stuff!

Sheer Matte Blush in Touch Plum

This gets the THUMBS UP! Miss Glitzy usually wears Benetint or Dandelion which are very light and natural – like not wearing makeup at all. The Thevi’s blush, on the other hand, highlights the cheeks with just a couple of magic touches of the brush. The colour is vibrant yet not over-the-top. Miss Glitzy had lasting rosy cheeks with Thevi!

Touch Plum is a unique and subdued pink shade which Miss Glitzy has never tried before. It’s a good romantic shade and at US$16, which is cheaper than Benefit, Miss Glitzy is considering getting more in other shades!

High Impact Lipstick in Plush

Miss Glitzy thought this shade complements the Blush very well. The lipstick is smooth and leaves a silky finish. The colour stands out but still looks natural and not outrageous. Miss Glitzy also appreciates its slim shape which makes it really handy to carry out.

Blush Brush

Miss Glitzy is not an expert with brushes because this is her first standalone blush brush! In terms of appearance, the Thevi’s brush resembles Sephora’s flat blush brush – their price range is similar too. Thevi’s brush is very sturdy yet soft and gentle to the skin. So far so good!

Triple Split Eye Shadow in Hemisphere

The selection of colours for eyeshadow trio was limited. Miss Glitzy chose Hemisphere as this was the color that she didn’t have in her collection. Hemisphere turns out be a subdued olive green with gold tint which is natural and perfect for work!

However, the colours does not come out strong on Miss Glitzy’s skin. Miss Glitzy had to apply a number of times to ensure that the colour appear. While this shade could be perfect for those with darker skin tones, Miss Glitzy prefers her usual NYX and Jane eyeshadows which are more pigmented.

Verdict

Overall, Thevi’s Cosmetics are of high quality and Miss Glitzy could already envision a Thevi counter in the departmental store with someone providing guidance on the ideal colours for individual skin tones. Currently, you can purchase the brand from its website.

Thanks Thevi! Really hope to see you on the racks of Sephora soon!

  8. Yo Folks,

    Trying for information about which are the easiest tooth whitening products to buy?

    It has been very difficult to get the truthful information as far as I can see. One place tells you one thing and a different place advises you something totally different!
    So, I thought the smartest thing to do is get practical advice from you people as you might personal knowledge re this area.

    Any info will be really appreciated.

    Thanks in advance folks.
