Manasi 7 is makeup as art. I don’t mean that it’s complicated or difficult to use – quite the opposite, in fact. Most of their highly pigmented, cream formulas are multi-use and can be easily applied with fingers. With many of the shades, Manasi 7 All Over Colour one pot could be used for eyes, cheeks and lips, for looks both subtle and dramatic. I think of these beautiful creams as paints. In the hand of an artist they can be used to create beautiful, complex looks, but they also encourage play and enjoyment. Although the range includes plenty of elegant neutrals and pretty pinks, don’t be afraid of the bolder shades. My personal favorite, the vividly purple Heliotrope, looks lovely as a lip stain and gives a pretty wash of color on the lids when applied with a light hand.
